Anime’s Bad Rap in the West

Although more understood for what it is by some Anime continues to suffer from misconception by many people in North America which is a shame.

As a art form Anime has no equal with its visually stunning animation and deep storylines that appeal to young and old alike. Unfortunately the majority of western people have never even watched a Anime movie or TV series or would ever even consider letting their children view one because of preconceived ideas of what it is.

Contrary to popular belief Anime is NOT full of sex and nude cartoon characters, that is the provence of the more underground Henti animation. Sure, some Anime TV shows in Japan will show naked characters as they are more relaxed then in America about the human form but that is not the norm nor are those scenes usually contained in DVD’s sold in the west unless it is made quite clear on the packaging.

Even with those scenes cut out it does not interrupt the flow of a Anime storyline as that is not what a Anime is built around. Most Anime shows and movies are very much a G rated storyline even uncut and are far superior in both visuals and storyline then western animation.

If you have never watched a Anime you are missing out on a great form of home entertainment that is suitable for your whole family. Some to consider for those that are just getting started in viewing Anime are the full length movies “Spirited Away”, “Howl’s Moving Castle” and “Kiki’s delivery Service”.

These are just a few of the hundreds of Animes that will open up a whole new world of animation to you.
