  Anime - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anime can be used as a common noun, "Do you watch anime?" or as a suppletive adjective, "The anime Guyver is different from the movie Guyver." It may also be used as a mass noun, as in "How much anime have you collected?" and therefore is never pluralized "animes" (nouns are never pluralized in Japanese).
Anime features a wide variety of artistic styles which vary from artist to artist and is characterized by detailed backgrounds and stylized characters in a variety of different settings and storylines, aimed at a wide range of audiences.
Most TV series anime episodes will have opening credits, closing credits, and often an "eyecatch", a very short scene, often humorous or silly, that is used to signal the start or end of the commercial break (as "bumpers" in the United States are used in a similar fashion).

 The Anime Encyclopedia, Jonathan Clements, Helen McCarthy
Anime is hugely popular in the Land of the Rising Sun; indeed, it's far more prevalent in mainstream culture than cartoons are in America.
Literally thousands of anime of every genre have been created since 1917 - from film shorts to TV series to full-length features.
There are also a few generalized entries scattered throughout, like "Early Anime" and "Wartime Anime" which give some interesting background on Japanese animation.

 The Anime Encyclopædia - anime, animé, Japanimation
The term anime refers to a distinctive tradition of Japanese animation that is almost immediately recognizable by its superior artistic quality as well as by the somewhat mannered artistic conventions anime artists employ, such as the preference for child-like, large eyes.
Anime fans greatly prefer the subtitled versions, and for a number of reasons: Sometimes the dubbing isn't quite in synch with mouth movements, the spoken (and sung) Japanese is part of the cross-cultural experience and charm of anime, and (not in the least) many anime fans are learning a little Japanese!
To share anime with one's children is to invite them to experience some of the most beautiful artistic works you'll find anywhere, as well as lots of flat-out fun.

The films presented here follow the development of anime chronologically: the classics of the ’50s are closer to their manga sources, while the recent productions are hybrid assemblages demonstrating everything high tech has to offer.
