anime is the coolest thing. it is japanese animation,like yugio and hello kitty ect. However anime isnt all about card games and stupid sounding voices! there is some beatiful anime movies created by master film maker hayao miyazaki, like spirited away, princess mononoke and other cool ones.The word anime comes from the french word meaning animation and the japanese adopted that word to describe their way of animation. the original pronounciation of this word was ahhhh.neeee.may, but americans made it aaaaaa. ni.may. I got really mad when my friend michelle and her friend coleen tried to convince my that anime was pronounced aaaa.ni.may!!!!!! okkkkkk i better stop typing now!
