Anime is a form of Japanese animation that has become famous throughout the whole world. It has gained popularity through its TV series, internet, films, video games, commercials and comics also known as manga. Manga comics have been running for a very long time even before the internet or TV started depicting the Anime collections.
Advanced Anime has become popular because of shows such as Naruto, Samurai X, Bleach, Samurai Champloon and many more. Anime are quite different from ordinary cartoons the style by which they are made and most of them feature blood scenes which may be considered too violent for kids.
Actually I do not think Anime where made for little children, most probably they were made for younger teenagers who prefer action filled cartoons. Most of the characters in the Advanced Anime may look more like westerners, but the characters where actually created by the Japanese and the main language spoken is actually Japanese, with English as the subtitles.
The creation of advanced anime has helped a lot of people who are bored by ordinary everyday cartoons to look forward to more exciting cartoon creations that take us on long and exciting journey that are filled with action and adventure.
Anime cartoons such as Pokemon are more for smaller children and many of which have become big hits in the US and other countries as well. You can find these animations in various websites on the internet and you can also download them for free which is another added feature.
