Japanese anime of the time of birth has a slightly simple and richly symbolic drawing
The two-minute work of painter Kouchi Junichi revolves around a silly samurai who bought a blunt blade, he has to overcome many challenges in exchange for another sophisticated sword. Did you realize the similarity of ideas of many popular anime like Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tail … compared to your “grandfather”? Yes, these films have a plot with the main characters always undergoing many challenges to achieve what they want.
However, some studies suggest that the product is called Katsudou Shashin, which is the precursor to the later anime. The video is a picture of a sailor wearing a film title on the board. So far, no one has found the identity of the person who made this work.
The first internationally famous anime is Momotaro (Peach Boy) developed by Kitayama artist Seitaro based on folk tales. In the story, two grandparents picked up a peach in the stream. When taking home, there was a boy who came out from digging out, growing as fast as blowing and becoming a famous general in Japan.
However, Japanese animation has not become a popular form of entertainment, let alone discussing an extremely successful work of Snow White (Snow White and Seven Dwarfs) of Walt Disney tree. It was not until the 1960s that an outstanding pioneer appeared like Tezuka Osamu.
The 70s also marked manga (comics), light novels (Japanese short novels) and anime (anime) began to be received. Many manga and anime created during this time have become monuments in the otaku community’s mind. These works mostly reflect the positive thinking of Japanese people. For example, the story of cat Doraemon and the boys of the same class as Nobita is drawn by artists Fujimoto Hiroshi and Abiko Motoo (Fujiko Fujio group) meaning to encourage team spirit, friendship and effort rising above poverty of Japanese people.
