But what is anime? According to Encyclopedia Britannica, anime is a style of animation popular in Japanese films and intended primarily for the Japanese market. It employs many cultural references unique to Japan, such as the large eyes of anime characters which are commonly perceived in as multifaceted "windows to the soul." Source
Why am I talking about Anime today aside from it being a Checkiday special day? Well as it happens The Professor and GD#1 are big fans of them and while I know what they are mainly I'm "meh" about them. A little while ago while the Professor was visiting he & GD#1 got into this big discussion about which anime's they liked and why. I was lost after the first sentence or two and I don't like that feeling. When I saw this on the calendar I thought this is my chance so today I'm going to look into some anime. I am pretty sure the Professor has all the ones Newsweek suggests on his Emby, (its a shared cloud library), so I'll have no trouble finding them.
1) "Fruits Basket"
2) "The Seven Deadly Sins"
3) "Attack on Titan"
4) "One Punch Man"
5) "Death Note"
The Link above will take you to the Newsweek article that goes with these titles so you can check them out for yourself, me I'm off to the Professors Emby to see what I can find. Have a great day!
