Approximately hundreds of new anime productions are aired on TV and distributed to the movie streaming platforms and every year. The number of must-watch anime is increasing year upon year.
The industry of anime has prospered substantially in Japan, partly as the country has other Japanese pop cultures such as manga, video games. and light novels. Some popular anime are adaptations of manga, video games, light novels in addition to other media. And anime has flourished worldwide so quickly, as anyone can access the Japanese animations with English dubs and subtitles.
