Im been wondering how i see anime reflecting off the japanese culture and cultures from around the world.

There has been also anime reflecting on human nature such as its emotions. Wat im getting as is how does subculture belong or fit in?

My opinions is tat throughout time ppl saw anime as a form of intertainment yet its cultureal and diversity makes it appealing to the public. Movies or shows from other countries has shown the same emotions of humanity or of its own culture yet millions or billions of ppl watch it everyday? Adding also even though there is anime without a real sense of plot or sense of purpose like a crazy comedy or other animes is there somewhere deep inside the anime a cultural connection and humanity connection?


All these combine into tat anime is somthing truely complex and ppl who doesnt see this thinks its childish should be ashame because these very values in anime makes up u and makes up wat we all hold dear to us all or some of us.

Dont care if this is a dup.....etc blah blah blah

Agree with me or not, anime is a form of art. Art is man's effort to recreate or imitate nature. So there goes subculture.

And yeah Looney Tunes <Merrie Melodies> rock but Squirrel Boy sucks!

Of course there is! Anime subculture is very real and diverse, you just need to know how to look at it from the real world, because the answer is not in the entertainments themselves.

Any form of ways of life can be defined as a form of culture. So in order to see culture as it truly is, you need to know how to see the various aspects of what makes up our daily lives. And the aspects of life are political, legal, industrial, economical, social, and spiritual.

I've been referring anime as but a subculture, because the culture itself is still not popular due to the fact that a lot of its aspects are still weak and fragile. Its international policy is weak and fragile due to the fact that it's Japanese in origin, a country that's without its own military. Its legal protection is weak and fragile due to the fact that it's rights and freedoms aren't being respected by the abounded internet piracy and copyright infringements. Its industries are weak and fragile due to a lack of real market for legitimate anime medias. Its economy is weak and fragile due to a market of niche target audiences within Japan. Its society is weak and fragile due to a lack of real support, trust, contribution, and understanding by its people, the anime fans. And finally, it lacks spirit unless we the anime fans can commit ourselves to put our effort into legitimacy that we can hope for, and have the guts to dream for a change.
