Anime – pronounced ah-nih-may – is a type of animation style that originated in Japan, and its origins can be traced back to around 70 years ago.

In 1945, the Japanese navy created an animated film called ‘Momotaro: Umi no Shinpei’ – which means Momotaro, Sacred Sailors in Japanese – and told the story of a bear, a pheasant, a monkey and a puppy after they do naval training. It started a tradition of an instantly recognisable, incredibly popular form of animation thanks to its huge range of genres, characters and unique stories. 

In fact, this type of animation is so popular that many schools in Japan consider anime as a subject –imagine having a double lesson of Beano on a Monday afternoon at school – and more paper is used to print manga (Japanese comics) than toilet roll! With many loyal followers, one anime show titled Sazae-san has broadcast over 2500 episodes. That’s a lot of anime!

We love anime at the Beano and have lots of quizzes dedicated to the likes of Studio Ghibli, Dragon Ball Z, My Hero Academia and Naruto – plus we’ve even got some hilarious anime jokes too!

And of course, there’s a special place for Pokémon on Did you know that Pokémon is an abbreviation of Poketto Monsutā which means 'pocket monster' in Japanese? Or that Pikachu basically translates as ‘sparkly mouse noise’. There’s 38 other awesome Pokémon facts to fill your brain!
