Anime is a broad Japanese art form and style, which has encompassed a large number of media, from comics or manga, fan-made literature and art to the conduction of events. It is a rich and colorful industry with enormous following all over the world for its interesting plots and themes as well as the culture it offers. In this paper, gathered information enlightens the fact that the topic anime is a fun medium that fans are able to relate with. It is an entertainment.
