Anime and Manga art has been in my life ever since I first saw a movie called ‘Techno Police‘ when I was very young.
Me and my brother would rent this VHS on a regular basis. We loved it. In the early 90’s the anime scene blew up in the UK and we could finally get our hands on awesome adult anime movies like Akira, Fist of the North Star and Urotsukidōji.
What I love about anime is that there are no age confines. In the west we may consider animation as primarily for children and the rare cartoons that are for adults always seem to be comedies (think The Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park!). In Japan there are various animations for children and adults alike and there are no subjects that are ‘out of bounds’.
Okay then, 2 more….
