What is anime ..part 2

Anime (Japanese Animation) are TV series and movies not only made for kids, but a lot of anime is created with teens and adults in mind. They have been doing this for a long time in Japan and are generally considered the best around the world in it. It encompasses the whole range of animation produced in Japan that a similar, relatively realistic style. There are Sci-fi stories (such as Neon Genesis Evangelion and full metal panic), comedies (whether plain out silly or naughty such as Love Hina), action flicks for every flavor, romance stories (from adolescent girl stuff, all the way up, such as Kanon), dramas (some of high quality such as Haibane Renmei), and even literary adaptations. What makes anime stand out from the rest of the animated series and movies (except for excessive violence and nudity) is the way they execute plots. Some of the plots (stories) are fairly silly and very simple allowing viewers to watch to have a laugh and pass time, but others offer ideas that challenge your mind, and stories that are surprisingly deep and thoughtful giving you a reason to think (such as Serial Experiments Lain and in my opinion Full metal Alchemist). But the main reason why people get attached to them is simply because they manage to merge these different genres together providing enjoyable mind blowing animation.
