Anime (Japanese Animation) is a much celebrated format of film and television loved by adults and youth alike. Originating in Japan and gaining popularity throughout Europe and the United States (Anime is actually a French word), Anime creates magical worlds where good and evil are constantly at odds and people are not bound by the laws of reality.
