About this Collection:
What is Anime?
Anime is a popular Japanese style of animated media. As opposed to the children’s cartoons in Western culture, this artwork is geared towards young adult audiences. In the Anime style of animation, characters in the foreground move less than in other types of animation. This stillness makes Anime feel like a hybrid between a comic book and an animated scene. The growing popularity of Anime has led to several online resources like Anime APIs.
How does an Anime API work?
An API connects a website or app to a database. People who are passionate about Anime need access to information about new media and old favorites. Through the API, the app can filter the search by the title, production company or animator. Some APIs also allow for communication between Anime fans.
Who are Anime APIs for?
Developers who want to make software related to Anime will use an API like Kitsu or the Anime News Network Encyclopedia to give fans access to information. The What Anime API receives a scanned copy of an Anime image and returns details to the user.
Why is Anime important?
Anime has grown in importance because it gives insight into Japanese culture. The storytelling, animation style and settings reflect the country’s history and values.
