ANIME.

Some of you may know it as something dearer to your heart than your own family. Or maybe it is your family.

Some of you probably know it as some kind of Japanese art or something.

Some of you have no idea what I’m talking about.

For the last demographic: I’m ignoring you. For this entire post.  Deal with it.  Go get a cookie, read a book, or go outside.  Do something active.  Or go look at this video of a kitten.

Now you guys. The ones here to stare at anime girls. Here’s your link.  Get lost.

ALRIGHT.

Now that the losers are gone, we can talk in private.

SO.

The anime serials that I watch/have watched are as follows:

Bleach.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

One Piece.

Neon Genesis: Evangelion

And of course I’ve seen Studio Ghibli’s work.  Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Nausicaa of the Valley of the et cetera, and so forth.

But there’s something interesting here;

People who grew up watching black and white TV dream in black and white. Nowadays, people mostly dream in color.

Me, I grew up watching Digimon. I dream in anime style, and so I’m drawn very much to this genre of televised entertainment.   I love how it can switch from comedy to earth-shattering drama and back again in an instant, just like real life.

And from an art standpoint!

You can capture a great deal with a photograph.

Especially if you’re an awesome photographer LIKE MY HOMIE TARA HERE http://tara-incognito.deviantart.com/ GO READ HER PAGE OR DIE IMMEDIATELY DO NOT FINISH THIS ARTICLE WITHOUT LOOKING AT IT but I digress.

The amazing thing about anime is that they capture so much in so little.

Whoa.

No, but seriously. Go look at a picture of an anime character. Like Ulquiorra here.

He’s happy to be here.

Look at the face. How many lines did they use to create a human face? And yet we know what he looks like. The suggestion of shape is taken to its utmost. GENIUS.

And the writing! And the quality!

OH EM GEE.

You don’t see craftsmanship like this in popular American television. Well, not much of it. (30 Rock, I’m looking at you).  One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist, Neon Genesis: Evangelion, even Bleach all exceed the standard for American media in writing, acting, and directing.  In comparison, the English-dubbing voice actors all sound wooden.

Try it. Watch an episode of Fullmetal Alchemist or something in Japanese, and then in the English dub. It’s not the same. There’s so much emotion charged into every word.

By television actors.

Also. This picture. Really cool. Go to it. The photographer’s not bad either.

SO.

To close the post.

Go find an anime. Those of you who like violence can check out the ones I watch–others might want to try something more like My Neighbor Totoro. But seriously. Check it out. It’s awesome.

Or, you know…

GO LOOK AT THIS DEVIANTART PROFILE.  http://tara-incognito.deviantart.com/

Have a nice day. ^_^
