Ok this probably sounds weird, but where did anime come from? Like where did they get the design of the anime eyes and drawings? I know one of the first anime was Astro Boy but I still don't know who came up with the concept. Any idea???
Yes I know anime came from Japan. I just wonder what inspired the Japanese to create it.
OK for people who keep saying google it and check wikipedia I haven't done that yet. I wanted to ask the CR community first if they knew.

Wikipedia is your friend for this type of stuff.

Google it.
Edit:No, don't google it. The answer is pretty obvious.

Probally from somwhere in Japan because the Anime characters look similar to Japanese/Chinese people

(straight hair, cute cut fringes, stunning eyes, thin bodies, Japanese sailor fuku's, Kimono/yukata, milky skin tone, etc.)

anime is base of old western styles of animation mostly Disney's cell animation techniques
Osamu Tezuka (creator of astro boy ans so called father of anme)was greatly influenced by Betty Boop and Walt Disney's Bambi and Mickey Mouse. the "large eyes" style of anime is based off of these styles
He adapted and simplified many Disney animation techniques and this evolved in to the current style
