In the Japanese language, anime is an inclusive term, describing all forms of film animation from across the world. However, in the English language, anime has evolved into a shorthand reference that specifically describes any animated film or television work created by Japanese animation artists. This film series explores a collection of Japanese-animated classics to illustrate the variety of themes and visual styles found throughout the art form. All films contain mature content.
