The Global Impact of Anime

The Global Impact of Anime

Anime is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the world, and it has had a huge impact on popular culture as well as its readers. Anime, while “newish” to US readers, has been around for decades and it has influenced countless people around the world, ranging the entire lifespan.  Anime has become a part of everyday life for many people, and its influence can be seen in everything from fashion to film, local and international conventions, and virtual based worlds.

Anime, a global phenomenon, with fans all over the world has created an entire industry with its own unique style and aesthetic, and many of its characters have gone on to become iconic pop culture figures. It has also had a huge impact on popular culture, with many of its storylines and characters being adapted for films and television shows.

Anime has also had a major impact on the way we view art and animation. It has pushed the boundaries of traditional animation and has allowed for new, creative styles to emerge. Anime has also had a huge impact on the way people consume media, with streaming services like Netflix and Crunchyroll offering anime titles to viewers around the world with updates that come weekly. 

Finally, anime has also had a huge impact on the way we view ourselves and how we interact with the world. It has helped to create a sense of community, with fans coming together to discuss their favorite shows and characters in many spaces that are viewed as safe for those who find themselves immersed in the culture. Anime has also been a source of inspiration for many, helping to shape their ideas and creative pursuits and view their mental wellness concerns through the lens of beloved storylines and characters.

It is easy to see how anime has had such a huge impact on the world. As the stories and characters have become a global phenomenon, influencing popular culture, art and animation, and how we consume media it is safe to say that the idea of Anime being a “phase” is absolutely inaccurate and is here to stay!
