9anime (pronounced: "Ah-nee-may") is a type of animation usually from Japan. They have their own style and it can show that in strange and wonderful ways. 9anime also has its own sense of comedy and has a unique way of thinking. It can get really deep and serious, or it can become silliest (like: "Lucky Star", "Kill Me Baby") and craziest (like: "Death Note","Gintama") thing you have ever seen. Most Anime shows are based on popular mangas (Japanese Comics), just putting a little more life into them. 9anime often covers more serious topics than typical cartoons. In America, cartoons are considered a form of entertainment meant for children. In Japan, people of all ages (no, not newborn babies!) watch anime. Most shows and movies are centred for kids, adolescent or young adults, but there are also many anime that are made for older crowd even businessmen and housewives!

The word "9anime " is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese, where this term references all animation. Outside Japan, anime is used to refer specifically animation from Japan or Japanese disseminated animation style often characterized by colourful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastical themes. Japanese animation began in 20th century. Katsudo Shashin is claimed to be the earliest Japanese animation. The 1923 Great Kanto earthquake resulted in widespread destruction including demolition of earliest 9anime Studios and anime works; leaving Kouchi's Namakura Gatana as the oldest surviving animation.The first anime television series was Otogi Manga Calendar aired from 1961 to 1964.


My introduction to 9anime was in class four when I watched "City Hunter" in a T.V. channel, Animax. Though I saw 9anime (as a matter of fact the plural of anime is anime) like "Doraemon","Shinchan","Avatar-The last airbender","Summer Days with Coo", "AstroBoy","Dragon Ball-Z", "Naruto" way back before yet I did not realize the profound sense of anime as it was dubbed in Hindi (rather I would say "contaminated" instead of "dubbed" by old, ridiculous male voices in Hindi who would crack unnecessary, slap-stick jokes deviating viewers from the plot and land you in a hotch-potch of indianised 9anime). My sister ( three years younger than me though I refuse to admit she is more mature than me) took strange interest in Japanese 9anime like " Tears to Tiara" and "Stigma of the Wind" aired in Animax: which I thought strange at that time as my "patriotic inertia" would prevent me from accepting anything but Indian products. I was first repelled by the fact that all the voice casts were in Japanese and to understand the story I had to take trouble of reading the English subtitles and had to correlate the speech with the video shown; for which great deal of attention was required. It was impossible for me to do both those tiring tasks at the same time, so I returned to my old T.V. channels: Cartoon Network, Nickolodeans, Hungama, Pogo, Boomerang and Jetix.


After a long hiatus, in class seven, I again started experimenting my skills in understanding 9anime which turned out to be a success, when I first indulged in anime like "Hayate the Combat Butler" and "Fairy Tail". Oh! Such a sweet poison! After a whole hectic day in school, tuition, swimming classes, art and music classes, and whole other heck lot of activities; I waited only to sit back and relax to watch these 9anime. At that time, nothing mattered to me; not even my parents, friends and teachers. In that virtual realms of pleasure I could tackle my defeats and sufferings as easily as I had taken in successes. Nothing bothered me, except when I had to attend phone calls or to open door, if any guest comes when the anime shows were ongoing. However, anime hardly did affect my studies as after watching two hour long program, I suffered from PADS (Post 9anime Depression Syndrome) for which I suffered the guilt of wasting time which was more intensified by my mother's rebuke (I would like to describe this situation as "Kata Ghaye nuun-er Chheta") and this guilt would propel me to study harder, concentrate and work for longer hours and this occurred as daily routine for me; so I could easily outdo most of the students be it studying or swimming or any other work.
