    First off I would like to say thank you for checking out my Blog. I'm creating this blog to help share my passion and fascination with Anime, an Manga. A lot of people believe that anime is just cartoons that you'd see when you where little, which isn't very true. Or that manga is just another form of those comic books you'd see the boys reading all the time, or the little comedy skits in the Sunday news paper.

The real definitions are

"Anime": (アニメ) are Japanese animated productions, and come in all formats, such as television series (such as Dragon Ball, Inuyasha, and the famous Sailor Moon, animated short films, and full-length feature films such as Grave of the Fireflies, and include computer animation creations. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese. In English, the term is defined as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastic themes. The intended meaning of the term sometimes varies depending on the context.

"Manga": (漫画) are comics created in Japan, or by creators in the Japanese language, conforming to a style developed in Japan in the late 19th century. They have a long, complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art. Manga-influenced comics, among original works, exist in other parts of the world, particularly in Taiwan ("manhua"), South Korea ("manhwa"), and China, notably Hong Kong ("manhua"). In France, "la nouvelle manga" has developed as a form of "bande dessinee" comics drawn in styles influenced by manga.

  So the idea of what I'll be doing is picking an Anime or Manga, that I have read or am going to read. I'll be giving updates about each book or episode. Sharing my opinions or likes/dislikes about each individual one. Hopefully this will help people understand more about it, an maybe start their own addictions to the many wonders of the different cultures around the world.
