Anime is the Japanese term for cartoons. A different word is used so as not to be confused with the western animated series. Unlike the West, where most of the animation is made for children, Japanese anime can be aimed at all age groups.
An abroad animate movie that gives artists a lot of freedom to express themselves. Some anime can be very stylized while others take a more realistic approach. They are also known for successfully blending CG effects with traditional hand-drawn animation.

Now that we know that anime can be the setting for all kinds of stories, not just children's shows, let's talk about anime films. Like the makers of Western animated films like Toy Story or Finding Nemo, Japan has its own anime industry. Although Japanese cartoons are growing in popularity overseas, not many people know of more impressive anime works. Most popular mostly commercialized and over-the-top shows like Digimon or Naruto.
So, if your first impression of anime comes from a dubious children's show you've seen on TV, that's not enough reason to decide that all anime is bad. Instead, watch some of the best anime films like Ghostbusters by Japanese anime genius Hayao Miyazaki. This animated film won an Oscar and is also the first (and so far only) animated work to win an Oscar.
Hayao Miyazaki's films (like Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, etc.) are always a good choice when you're looking for a good anime movie to watch. There are other classics like Grave of the Fireflies, Ghost in the Shell or Akira. Most of these films have been translated and dubbed, so you should have no trouble getting your hands on a DVD and enjoying an amazing journey
