In many regions of the world if people find you watching anime people may judge you as childish.  But in Japan, Anime is not just a childhood thing but it’s used for all type of animation movies. The anime comics are called Manga which has a wide pool of fans. For the rest of the world, anime and cartoon both are two different worlds. Like Anime is Japanese Guy and Cartoon in American Guy. English dictionaries define the word Anime as ‘Japanese style of motion-picture animation’.

Personally, I feel animes are more cute, realistic and adorable. It has better stories that everyone can watch at any age. Let’s understand the scenario with a meme.
