Next time, perhaps I will do a Ghibli one, but for now, inspired by a poll at MMA I thought I'd run an anime poll and see what happens. I left a fair few out, but it's late and I'm tired hahaha

Nice, kinda a chilling film, huh? I found Ghost in the Shell to be pretty good but a little exposition-heavy at times.
Paprika for me because it is full of references to outside texts and is just pretty inventive. I do like a detective story too

I liked Akira well in the 80s. As for the author of Akira, description looked splendid in comparison with the comics before it. The theme such as near future and SF and the supernatural power is still popular with readers. And probably Japanese various animated cartoons will be liked abroad.

^ Akira is pretty powerful, and the animation quality, wow, today it's still fantastic. Yeah, a classic theme, Kazu - I wonder why readers are drawn to visions of a negative, dystopian future?

I must write an article to explain this.LOL In any case I do not know whether my explanation is appropriate.

The mainstream and the theme of the animated cartoon in Japan were justice and bad people. As for the Japanese animated cartoon of the 60s and the 70s, justice always overthrows bad people. Children always enjoyed it to see it.

However, as for the Japanese animated cartoon, the contents gradually changed in the 80s. It became the animated cartoon which adult could enjoy. Justice and the specific gravity of the bad person become equal. What is the justice? What is the bad person? The author sends the message to people.

And before such comic that Akira was announced did not exist. However, the author of Akira let the contents of the comics contain all themes in the 80s. Decadent contents would look fresh for a reader. Including a style of painting.

I like it, Kazu, well explained indeed!  I wonder if justice and the idea of the bad sort had a simultaneous treatment in other countries in the 80s (in anime?) What was Disney doing in the 80s? Or other studios, I should look in to it.

I explained at least Japanese comics and the situation of the animated cartoon. Of course I did not know comics of the overseas 80s and the history of the animated cartoon.

Disney of the 80s in Japan was not popular very much. "Tron" slightly became the topic in Japan. However, the movie is not an animated cartoon. Or "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" was shown, too. However, there was a little popularity in Japan.

Tokyo Disneyland was started in Japan in 1983. The people spend much time at the place.
