Who is animeshnik?

Who is animeshnik? Some people will ask themselves the question: "Who are they, these animeshniki, and what are they doing?" Others will answer immediately: "These are adults who in my twenty years still consider themselves as children and watching cartoons in the morning till late at night .. . "

Animeshnik actually something like a child. He may behave naively and think the same way among its adherents. But in fact it is an ordinary man with ordinary problems and issues in his life. He also goes to school, like all children, as he attended the university, like all students, works like all adults ... He has a family, caring for the home, problems at work or at school. Still, as an ordinary person ...

"Only because of the fact that this man loves cartoons, it is called animeshnikom? I love movies, my brother fanateet of video games, then we, too, is something similar? .. "- You ask. Whatever the case may be, whatever the appearances, but if a man "nicknamed the" animeshnikom, it is "earned". Let's find out the true cause of this "nickname".

What is the anime and manga?
First, the term anime series. What is it and why you eat? If you put it simply, it is Japanese animation. The first experiments on the creation of anime in Japan began in the distant 1913, and the first cartoon appeared in 1917. As the Japanese did not like the Americans, and the anime is not like an American cartoon. The difference is the first thing in the schedule. The Japanese are doing pretty sketchy drawing movements, but normally do not save time in drawing the background and development of graphically complex characters. In Europe, Russia and the U.S. have done the opposite.

Anime would be wrong to call "animation" - they have completely different approach. The word "animation" comes from England. "Multiply, multiply," and "animation" - from animate - animate.

The Japanese anime series has an older "sister". Her name manga (contemporary Japanese comics). In the manga it all started. History of the manga has more than 1000 years. The first experiments with "A Story in Pictures" appeared in the tenth century. As with anime, manga, in Japanese, too, unlike Europe. Japanese manga is only drawn in black and white, and read it not only children but also adults. Small volumes of manga published a huge circulation and are sold at an incredible rate. Living in Land of the Rising Sun read manga on the subway, at home, on the street ..., yes anywhere! Stories about heroes, so similar to the ordinary people from the real world, attract the attention of even the most serious in adults. About the kids can no longer speak.

For example, save the anime craze in Ukraine spread widely after the appearance on the screens in 2001, multiseries anime Bushido Senshi Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon"). After this hobby of Japanese animation began to conquer everything in its path. Initially, the monthly magazine, began to experience some type declaration: "Fans of anime! Who wants to maintain a friendly correspondence and pleasant communication - write !.., "I love anime. Seeking like-minded people ... "etc. Then started to appear a virtual team of anime fans, who came to conquer and the Internet. Well, finally began to find the place and meet in real.

So what do animeshniki?
The average person is led astray anime, first, looks anime. Who's on television, who buy CDs on the market (honestly, before it was very hard to find something similar to DVD; none of the vendors even had the slightest idea what this "anime", just a few years ago, this hobby has become so popular with adults uncle started earning money out of this). Secondly, he somehow tries to strengthen his passion: the characters began to draw anime, continued to write favorite ended series, or to invent new stories of his old series ...

Another animeshniki interested mythology and traditions of Japan, mystical creatures and phenomena, astronomy, psychology, and not just because all this is closely connected with the subjects of anime and its characters. If animeshnik, reading manga, is no surprise, then dressed in colorful costumes from popular anime character, it certainly will attract a lot of attention. Such eccentricity is called cosplay (from English. Costume play - costume play").

If you do not pay attention to some oddities in their behavior, for example, "nya'kane" at the sight of something beautiful and sweet, or "kso'kane" if something does not work (note, only in the company of their own kind!) , they could be called the most ordinary people who are no different from the others. They do not wear bright pink clothes and dye their hair in the same color as emo, do not give light weight chains and do not dress up in the mourning colors, like goths or metal, are not allocated an extra-extraordinary appearance as a punk ...

Occasionally you can see a couple of icons on the bag-pochtalonke different anime pictures or T-shirt with cute smiling muzzle. And those who in addition to viewing anime engaged in other related activities and also know some vocabulary in Japanese, are the title of "otaku". Tru-otaku (those who fully devoted himself to the world anime) is not very much, still dominated by common, for example, just-otaku.

Lexicon otaku
Anyone who does not know how to say "hello" in Japanese - not an otaku. "Ohio" - the first word uttered fellow animeshnikami at the meeting, as well as "Jan" ("until", "see you") - a good-bye. Such words are many, all of them, of course, impossible to remember, but many somehow still manage to learn all this. Some are even devote themselves to serious study of Japanese language!

Here, for example, the most frequently used expressions:

Ohio 11,111,125. - Hello
[i] Konnichiua
- Good afternoon
Jan - Until, before meeting
Sayonara - Farewell
Sugoi - Cool
Hido - Awful
Kira - Beautiful
Royal - Scary
Kawai - Cute
Hi - Yes
Iyo - No
Baca - Bad (silly)

And animeshniki often use emoticons, as in sms'kah and in school notebooks or student summaries. Personalities, whatever you say, creative. Even if their work is sometimes manifested not just at the time and place.

P.S. Always cheerful, emotional, imaginative, friendly ... Well, little kids, but what's wrong? Is it bad to look at the world so that it increasingly was a bright and joyful, rather than gray, serious and sad?
