DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that “anime,” or アニメ in Japanese, is an abbreviation of animēshon, based on the English word “animation”? Anime has steadily become more popular in the West, with major streaming platforms like Netflix and Crunchyroll helping publicize anime shows to a much wider audience. Beyond the West, however, anime fever has also taken over the world and went mainstream, especially with shows like Naruto, Dragonball, and Sailor Moon. Anime movies has also been big worldwide hits, such as Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away and Your Name.
The Association of Japanese Animation has stated that the recent anime boom has given way to the expansion of the Japanese animation industry in overseas markets, hitting record highs in terms of internet distribution rights. This meant that anime has to be adapted to fit a worldwide audience, which started the advent of dubbing or subbing anime. This has sparked a great debate between non-Japanese fans of anime. While some people prefer dubbed anime so as to not get distracted by reading subtitles on the screen, others still prefer to watch the original Japanese version. The famous Japanese animator, Hayao Miyazaki, has put his two cents in the matter and said that he has always intended his films to be watched and not read, and so he supports dubbing. Needless to say, anime fever is not showing any signs of stopping, whether dubbed or subbed.
