anime Japanese in America

Pocky, Anime, manga, kanji. Have you heard of any of these? If not where have you been? All around us teenagers, children, and even adults are being drawn into Japanese culture through TV, books, and even food. Japanese comics, called manga, take up more and more space on American bookshelves, and they've infused new life into the publishing industry. Japanese animation, anime, is on more and more movies and TV screens and influencing popular toys and games.
Before the 80's when people thought of Japanese imports, they thought of cars, TV's, walkmans, and other electronics. Japanese pop culture is becoming increasingly popular and shows no signs of stopping. Now children are trying to learn Japanese and martial arts to be like their favorite anime character. Teens are learning to speak Japanese and adopting Japanese clothes, food, and even traditions. Adults are enthralled by the colorful and vast world of anime and manga and are amazed they can have such a lasting effect on their kids.
Some people may wonder why Japanese anime and manga are so popular with kids and the answer is simple. They're so different and captivating, everyone can find one they enjoy. You have action, comedy, romance, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and tons more. Some even mix and match, making a truly wonderful and breathtaking experience.
And it's not just the movie and book industry either. Music, known as J-pop or J- rock, is taking up more and more room on the Internet. The Japanese bands are not only making popular music, they're also very interesting and different to look at. These bands are known as Visual Kei and are indeed unique in their own ways. Americans are drawn to them because, quite frankly they've never seen or heard anything like it. The closet thing we have to that is Marylin Manson but he's just creepy and not that fun to look at.
The largest Japanese import, undisputedly, is video games. Nintendo, Sega, and the Sony Playstation have made the biggest impact on this nation. Just about every game you pick up in from Japan. Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario, even Pac-man. Video games have come farther than anyone could have imagined. With new crazes like Dance Dance Revolution, a game in which you literately dance on a pad to popular J-pop songs, and new technology Americans will keep buying Japanese games.
Some people may think this is a bad thing. They're children are embracing another culture instead of their own. And what is so wrong about that? Would you rather they hated every other culture except their own? The Japanese Boom' is a way to open minds, expand imaginations, and open doors to new cultures. One child may grow up on anime and go on to learn other cultures. S/He may grow up to be a democratic negotiator, or something of the like because s/he embraced other cultures at an early age.
So there's nothing to be alarmed about when a kid comes up to you with Japanese words on their shirt and says Konichiwa' to you then walks away singing "I think I'm turning Japanese". Or when you see a strange food called Pocky' or Ramen' in general stores. Americans are just being invaded by Japan. No big. ... more

Ayashi no Ceres

Ayashi No Ceres (Suspicious Ceres)

Aya Mikage and Aki Mikage are hanging out with their friends and they make Aya go and get her fortune told.  Her fortune is about how when she turns 16, her life will be turned upside down and a dark star will effect her fate.  She doesnt know what the woman was talking about but she was right.  Then when they are walking across a bridge a man steals an old ladys purse and Aya runs after the man.  When she gets the purse she falls over the edge of the bridge and then is saved by a mysterious force.  The night before her and Akis birthday their parents tell them that they are to come straight home from school because theyre going to their grandpas house to celebrate their birthday.  When Aki and Aya arrive their whole family is there and they are all sitting around a table.  A man gives them a box and Aya is cautious in opening it.  Aki takes it from her and opens it.  Once he does Aya feels a mysterious presence over her and then she sees images in her head.  Once she comes to, she looks at Aki and hes shaking.  Then he gets a bunch of slashes all over his skin and hes bleeding everywhere.  The test that Ayas family put her up to is true.  The celestial being named Ceres is in Aya.  The rest of the family leaves and Aya and her grandpa and her father are still in the room.  Ayas father is suppose to shoot her, yet as he struggles, he tells her to fight her fate and her grandpas hit man shoots her father in the head.  Aya screams and Ceres takes over her body and kills almost everyone in the room with a large energy blast.  Aya doesnt remember what happens and wakes up in a tree.  Tooya, a man who saved her from getting hit by a car, finds her there and kisses her to stop her from screaming when hit men are walking around looking for Aya to kill her.  Suzumi sends her brother-in-law, Yuuhi to go and get Aya.  He does and Yuuhi brings her back to the Aogiri household.  Suzumi explains to Aya whats going on.  Aya is of the bloodline that has a Tennyo (Angel/Fairy) blood.  She tells how the Mikage have killed countless women in the family who show signs of Ceres being in them.  Aya doesnt care and runs away from them.  Aya gets a message to go to the hospital that Aki is at.  After arriving her mother tries to kill her because the Mikage put her on a drug.  Aya becomes Ceres once again and Ceres goes on a killing rampage.  Then Aya is woken up by Yuuhi kissing her.  Then for about 20 more episodes they build up the plot.  Im just am going to skip to the ending.  It turns out that Ceres is looking for her Haragomo (A special coat that lets her go to heaven).  She will leave once she finds it.  Aki turns into Mikage (the first relative that forces Ceres to marry him).  Tooya returns after being killed.  He is in the form of an angel and he has returned because hes not human but the Haragomo of Ceres.  He turned into a human like creature because it fused with micro marine life.  So, while Mikage is fighting with everyone and trying to kill everyone Tooya comes to the rescue and saves Aya.  Yet, later Mikage stabs her in the stomach.  Everyone becomes worried because Aya is pregnant with Tonyas baby.  Tooya gives the Haragomo to Aya and it saves her life and Ceres appears in her true form.  In the end Aya is faced with the problem of killing Mikage in which will kill her brother Aki too.  Ceres doesnt give her a lot of time so in a loud scream she raises her hand and a beam of energy flows from it killing Mikage and Aki.  Then in the ending credits you see everyone, Aya is 8 months pregnant, Tooya tells Yuuhi that he is going to die in 2 years because of ... more
