According the infallible Wikipedia, “Anime (アニメ?) refers to the animation style originated in Japan. It is characterized by distinctive characters and backgrounds (hand-drawn or computer-generated) that visually and thematically set it apart from other forms of animation….Anime and manga (a mixture of ukiyo-e and Western styles of drawing, and took its current form shortly after World War II) share many characteristics, including: ‘exaggerated physical features such as large eyes, big hair and elongated limbs… and dramatically shaped speech bubbles, speed lines and onomatopoeic, exclamatory typography.'”[2]

    I just stopped by to say that we are in full support of IS183 Art School. You have been around for 19 years and there are still people that haven’t heard of your awesomeness. We are defiantly helping to spread the word and if there is something specific you need yell.
    Kids are our future!
    Everyone feel inspired to dress the way you feel!
    Your all so awesome!
