anime
  a distinctive style of animated film that has its roots in Japanese comic books (known as manga), yet covers a wide range of genres, such as romance, action/adventure, drama, gothic, historical, horror, mystery, erotica (hentai), children's stories, although most notably sci-fi and fantasy themes; originally called 'Japanimation' but this term is not used anymore; anime is found in a wide variety of storylines and settings, but usually recognizable and often characterized by heavily-stylized backgrounds, colorful images and graphics, highly exaggerated facial expressions with limited facial movement, simulation of motion through varying the background behind a static character or other foreground element, and frequently, big-headed characters with child-like, large eyes
  Examples: Anime began in the early 1900s, but was more developed by the 1970s, entered into the mainstream in Japan in the 1980s, and was more widely accepted internationally beginning in the 1990s. Recent examples include director Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (1997), Spirited Away (2001) and Howl's Moving Castle (2004) (pictured).
