Anime is a form of Japanese animation which is usually based off of Manga. Manga are comic books/graphic novels that originate from Japan. I have been watching anime and reading manga for as long as I can remember. The internet also makes it possible for me to watch and read them. They are always published in Japanese first whether it is anime or manga and through the internet I have them available for me to enjoy in English via online websites or in the form of books(Manga). This has brought me many hours of pure joy and sometimes sadness as you get really absorbed in different stories.My favorite anime/manga of all time is One Piece, which started in 1997 and is still ongoing as well as the 2nd most sold comic in the world, Superman is first and Batman is third in-case someone was curious. The internet has made it possible for me to read and watch not just One Piece but many more and be part of something for 10 plus years! If it wasn’t for the internet, I wouldn’t have known if manga or anime even existed and I am very thankful for that.
