What is anime?

Anime is a Japanese art style that is either hand drawn or digitally made. In Japan and Japanese, anime refers to the shortening of the English word “animation” and describes all animated works, regardless of style or origin. It is a diverse medium with distinctive production methods that have adapted in response to emergent technologies.
