Hi ya’ll

I wanted to introduce you to Wink!  She will be the leading character in my first official manga/anime.    I will be showing you guys step by step how I make this manga even though I cannot really even draw.

This is drawn by an artist I hired.  I hope you like.

You know if you do make an anime…one important thing to consider is the music.  How many people can forget the themes to shows like SAO, One-Punch Man and one of the biggest Neon Genesis.   I’ve lived in Japan and A Cruel Angels Thesis is on the Karaoke list.   To be honest I miss a ton of old school soundtracks we used to get in the 80s and 90s.  It has been quite some time since we’ve seen a real soundtrack.  I guess that is why Guardians of the Galaxy was so refreshing.

So when making your anime…don’t forget….you need a good theme song.

To be honest if I am going to make an anime on a lower budget….I have to use CG.  It just will not work be a no-man to low-man team and do this all by hand.  CG is where I personally feel I need to go to bring speed and quality.

How forgiving are you of 3d anime if it has a good story?

 

If some of you really want to get down and draw your own anime characters and do a 2d show and need some help this guy is the best.

By the way are are a ton of tutorials on his youtube site.   Hope this helps.

 

There is always this “nerd” argument that Anime made outside of Japan is not really anime.   There are many folks who would never give a show a second look if it wasn’t made in Japan.

What do you think?

Well to be honest I think it is somewhere in the middle.   There are obvious cultural aspects that are part of anime specifically in those slice of life type shows but when you start getting into fantasy and scifi I think the line is blurred and really doesn’t matter.

To be technical about it….most anime is made in Korea.  So technically it ain’t anime either IF your definition is that it must be made in Japan.  And if you notice recently China is coming in producing its own anime.

Things are changing.   To all you nerdy guys who are the “actually” guys/gals.  Give it up and get with the times.  :)

Anime is anime wherever it is made.

And remember at the end of the day Anime was inspired by American culture.
