Anime: Yesterday and Today

Did you know that the word Anime is a Japanese shortened term for Animation? I often hear the word Anime referring to Japanese cartoons or characters. I realized that I have already been exposed to Anime when I was a young girl. I remember how my brother and I were so hooked on watching Voltes V in the early 80s. Voltes V was dubbed in English when it was shown in the Philippines. It was later on dubbed in Tagalog. Voltes V stopped airing a long time ago but it has remained alive in the hearts of fans.

Today young children have many favorite anime characters like Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Card Captors, Hamtaro and Bakugan. Anime has become so popular that you can now see them everywhere. You can watch Anime on TV and DVD. There are also many Anime magazines, toys and video games available in the market.
