Welcome to the Anime General thread on the World of Tanks forums. Anime related posting has been a large thing

on the World of Tanks forums for quite a while now and this thread is a means to contain bring interested users

together without swamping the forums with content.

 

Anime is a shortened version of the word animation in Japanese though for various reasons the word is used

to reference a particular style of art and genre of animated art usually Japanese in origin. Manga are comics

drawn in a style we would file into this particular style. The style is largely dependent on the artist/animator,

resulting in many studios developing their own "brand" of style that they may be recognized by. It's not just

art however, anime allows for different kinds of stories and story telling that we are hard pressed to show

or visualize as the medium (animation) allows us to more easily depict events that would occur in a story.

Different animation styles also serve to depict different tensions and the emotion an artists wishes to portray.

 

   vs.  

 

Anime is almost always generated in Japan and as such it is important to remember that their society and

cultural norms are different from our own. Sometimes lingo, jokes, behaviors and other things may seem

foreign and alien to ones you know or you may not understand something, if that is the case you may understand

over time or seeking out context/context clues may provide more light on the scenario.

 

As for enjoyment, it's simply a personal taste. Each person will have their own reasons for liking something.

 

Beyond the basic forum rules there are a few thread specifics that we do ask you abide by:

1.) No Ecchi/Hentai content is to be permitted

This is essentially perverse or sexual material. Abide by basic forum rules for such content.

 

2.) Please keep your posts clean

Make use of the spoiler tags to store/hide larger than average images

 

3.) Refrain from getting into arguments with other users

Debates and discussions are allowed and welcomed, but please keep arguments

to a minimum. Do not threaten other users.

 

4.) In the event of attempted derailment simply report users and carry on

We've had some people attempt to force the thread to be closed in the past. Just report such users

and ignore them wherever possible.

 

5.) Don't weeb out

Seriously, no one likes this or thinks it's cute

I believe Touhou is counted as an anime/manga related item, so it's fine to discuss here.

It sounds familiar...
Is that the one where there are two main characters who are package delivery people and fly around in a small ship or something?
