Anime / Manga
DescriptionManga (Japanese: 漫画; the two Chinese characters literally mean "immoral" or "whimsical" pictures) is a widely popular form of comic books in Japan. Manga originated in late 19th century, but came to prominence in the second half of 20th century. The term anime (Japanese short version of the word "animation") is normally used to describe animated cartoon movies of Japanese origin.
When applied to video games, these two terms indicate a specifically Japanese visual style, characterized by sharp, bright coloring; exaggerated, often "super-deformed" facial and body proportions in drawing; "cute" stylistic elements, etc.
Originally only applied to 2D graphics, anime or manga characteristics can also be clearly visible in many 3D games made in Japan.
