The history of manga/anime - 03-24-2007, 01:44 PM

For those of you who are interested, a long but very interesting article on how the art of manga (and anime) has been influenced by various events - notably World War 2 - throughout history:

Why Do Manga and Anime Characters Look the Way They Do?


"It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -from the film Coach Carter
