A Little History about Anime

Anime is a prominent animation style in Japanese films. Early anime films were largely aimed at the Japanese market, and as a result, many cultural references specific to Japan were used. The huge eyes of anime characters, for example, are widely regarded in Japan as multidimensional "windows to the soul." Although anime is primarily aimed at children, mature themes and subject matter can often be found in anime films.

The oldest documented anime films are from 1917, and the history of anime may be traced back to the turn of the twentieth century.

Ten Shimokawa, Jun'ichi Kuchi, and Seitaro Kitayama, known as the "fathers" of anime, were among the first group of animators in the late 1910s. During World War II, propaganda films like Momotar no Umiwashi (1943) and Momotar: Umi no Shinpei (1945), the latter being the first animated feature film, were made. Anime evolved further in the 1970s, breaking away from its Western roots and spawning unique genres such as mecha and its super robot subgenre. Astro Boy, Lupin III, and Mazinger Z are examples of popular shows from this time period. Several filmmakers rose to prominence during this time, including Hayao Miyazaki and Mamoru Oshii.

The establishment of Mushi Productions by Osamu Tezuka, a prominent character in modern manga, the dense, novelistic Japanese comic book form that contributed substantially to the aesthetic of anime, began in 1956 and reached enduring popularity in 1961. Anime like Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (1997) is the modern equivalent of Japanese masters like Mizoguchi Kenji and Kurosawa Akira's epic folk adventures. With the Pokémon television series and films like Miyazaki's Spirited Away (2002), which won an Academy Award for best-animated feature film, anime began to gain considerable international recognition at the turn of the twenty-first century.

Anime  is a Japanese word that refers to both hand-drawn and computer-generated animation. The word is an abbreviated version of the Japanese word "animation," which refers to all animation. Outside of Japan, the term anime is used to refer to Japanese animation or a Japanese-distributed animation style.

Anime is a perfect story-telling mechanism that combines graphic art, characterization, cinematography, and other creative and independent techniques. The realism of environments, as well as the use of camera effects such as panning, zooming, and angle shots, are more important in anime production than the animation of movement. Because anime is hand-drawn, it has a significant gap of fiction between it and reality, providing an excellent path for entertainment that audiences may easily immerse themselves in.

With the popularity of anime like as Gundam, Macross, and Dragon Ball, as well as genres such as real robot, space opera, and cyberpunk, anime became mainstream in Japan in the 1980s, resulting in a production boom. After being adapted as Star Blazers and Robotech, respectively, the Space Battleship Yamato and The Super Dimension Fortress Macross enjoyed worldwide success.

Akira broke records for anime film production expenditures in 1988, and went on to become an international phenomenon. The same creators then made Steamboy in 2004, which became the most expensive anime film. Spirited Away took first place at the Berlin Film Festival in 2002 and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003, while Innocence: Ghost in the Shell premiered at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

We hope that you love a little history behind anime creations and how they got started. Especially for the fanatics out there!
