Japan 日本. Animation and Gaming. Basic Knowledge. Japan is an island country in eastern Asia. It lies east of the Sea of Japan. The characters or symbols that make up the name of Japan mean “Sun Origin”, which is why Japan is sometimes known as Land of the rising sun.
Animation and Gaming
The current long running anime at this point include the following:
Some anime aren’t just limited to animation and some are so popular they are produced in live action or even musicals. Some of these include Bleach, Prince of Tennis, and more known, Death Note live action.
Despite the strange name it entails, Bleach is not about washing detergent. Bleach is a well known Manga and Anime in Japan, even in America. The Manga is written by Noriaki Kubo, with the pet name Tite Kubo. The picture in the next slide is the front page of the first Manga of Bleach showing the main character Ichigo, which in japanese means Strawberry
There are multiple enemies of Bleach, the most reccuring enemy is the Hollow, a creature of multiple sizes that eat wandering souls of dead humans, as well as Shinigami. There are multiple levels of Hollow, including the large hollow, Menos Grande, which is, as you can see in the background, larger than the large buildings.
Death note is no longer running although remains popular among many people in Japan, even in America due to the nature of the anime.
The anime is about a high school student named Light Yagami who finds a note book called the Death note. The next screen is a picture of the anime, Death note.
Death note is about, specifically, Light Yagami and a detective named L. Light finds a note book called the Death note. If you know the face, and the name of someone, their name can be written down and they will die from a heart attack. Not only this, it is possible to select how this person dies and when. In one example, Light writes that someone will die one week at a specific time, cutting his finger off, writing a suicide note with it, then hanging himself. He only targets criminals, usually.
That’s it about Japan and Animation, not much else to say.
