INTRODUCTION OF ANIME AND MANGA
Maybe you are wondering.... what are anime and manga???
For the simplest answer, manga are actually Japanese comic, and anime is the Japanese animation (cartoon) like... hmm, let's see....the popular Rurouni Kenshin a.k.a Samurai X, Dragonball, Gundam, etc.
If you still don't get it, ok, have you ever heard
of Doraemon (the blue cat-robot that has a magical pocket on it's belly)? I'm
sure you know him or should I say 'it'. And what about Pokemon?.. or Pikachu (that cute little
yellow squirrel-like 'animal')? Well..... That... is what I'm talking about! But
that's just a simple example.
Manga and anime are for all sorts of people. Unlike Malaysian, which generally seems to believe that 'cartoons are for kids', Japanese manga-ka (manga authors) write for everyone from innocent young children to pervert old men.
Anime have appealing characters and touch the expect of death and reality plus humor unlike the West TV cartoon with simple minded stuff in it and can only attract Ribena children (kanak-kanak Ribena la tu) which you can watch every Saturday and Sunday morning on TV (or everyday on cable TV...^_^). But not all of them of course!
You'll know what I mean when you watch the Street Fighter USA from USA (of course) and compare it with the Street Fighter 2 V from Japan. See the different between these 2?!!!
For more information about anime, you can refer to Farah's Kingdom of Art.

Drama: I seldom watch Japanese dramas. My favorite was Meoro Attack. Eheh... but the popular one is what's the title... alah... that Aishiteiru, aishiteiru opening song... whateverlah! Oh, I remember, it's 'Say You Love Me'. There's a lot more.
There's a petition going around about animating the rest of the Jinchuu arc. Here's the address:
"We, the fans of Rurouni Kenshin, would like to see the unanimated Jin Chuu arc finished and released. The fans of Rurouni Kenshin are very interested, and are creating this petition in hopes that it shows enough support to make a release. For those unaware, the Jin Chuu arc is the part that displays Enishi. Animation had begun on it, but was never finished."
So, if you're a true fan of Rurouni Kenshin, sign the petition, okay?! Show your support!!!
MY ANIME SITES

But here's the links to my 2 old-boring anime sites.
