What is Anime?



Leonardo Santos, Journalist

Animes are a type of animation like cartoons, but with slightly different dynamics. While cartoons are mainly designed for children, anime can be for any age, being able to do whatever you imagine. The characters can have powers, or they can just be normal humans. They can have the strength to destroy the universe, or be weaker. It depends on your imagination.


There are several popular anime worlds such as Dragon Ball, Jujutsu Kaizen, Naruto, Tokyo Ghoul, and Nanatsu No Taizai. In the world of Dragon Ball, for example, they have the strength to destroy a planet with just one finger. In the world of Kaizen Jujutsu they look for curses, in Naruto they live in a village of ninjas that can make several different powers, and in Tokyo Ghoul they live in a city where there are monsters like humans that eat human flesh. It is a very good anime in my opinion, with characters like the army or SWATteam, with very modified and stronger weapons that can change shape, in Nanatsu No Taizai, there is a world where demons, fairies, angels, gods, giants and many other species exist. The world is very similar to comics, but has a lot more emotion that I guarantee.

For you to create an anime, you have to be creative and know how to draw to make the characters. You also need to create a story. If you can make a good story, it will most likely be successful for you! Both watching and creating animes are a very good way to pass time.
