Anime is, in fact, anabbreviated pronunciation ofAnimation in Japan. It began in 1917 by Japanese artists : Shimokawa Oten, Jun'ichi Kouchi and Seitaro Kitayama.Anime is not synonymous with "cartoon"despite the popular belief held by the "Uneducated" masses.Anime is considered to be an art form by those who appreciate it. A wide range of audiences are targeted with complicated, in depth and emotional storylines. In Japan, there are more than 40 new anime appearing on television per week.
Anime culture in the United States began as a niche community that had a grassroots foundation built by groups of fans on the local level. Some of the earliest televised anime to air in the United States wereAstro Boy, Speed Racer, andGigantor, which gained popularity with many American audiences during the late 1960s. Anime shows that aired in the United States up until the 1980s were usually heavily altered and localized, such asScience Ninja Team Gatchaman becomingBattle of the Planets in the 1970s, and the mecha showMacross becomingRobotech in the 1980s. Takara’sDiaclone andMicroman mecha toy lines also became the basis for theTransformers franchise in the 1980s.
A subculture began to grow around the United States revolving around people who identified with thesocial identity “Anime fan". The strong imagined community built by the fandom since the earliest days was both the backbone and reason for the subculture's growth.Today, early 2000s anime shows likePokemonhave become almost universally recognized media in the United States.
