Anime (Japanese:, IPA: [aime] (audio speaker iconlisten)) is a type of Japanese hand-drawn and computer animation. Anime (a phrase derived from the English word animation) is a term used in Japan to denote any animated works, regardless of style or origin. Outside of Japan and in English, however, anime is a vernacular term for Japanese animation that refers to animation created in Japan. Anime-influenced animation is defined as animation made outside of Japan that has a similar style to Japanese animation.
Japan's first commercial animations were released in 1917. With the works of cartoonist Osamu Tezuka, a distinctive art style arose in the 1960s and spread over the following decades, attracting a significant home audience. Anime is released in theaters, on television, on home media, and over the Internet. Anime is frequently based on Japanese comics (manga), light novels, or video games, in addition to original works. It is divided into a number of genres that cater to a variety of wide and particular audiences.
