Hentai Anime

A lot of people today know at least something about Anime. Some may refer to it as Japanese Animation, while others may say that they’re cartoons that look a lot better than American toons. Well, both of those appear to be correct if you ask the majority of Anime fans out there. Anime has been around for a long time and it is definitely blossoming everywhere across the world. Since this has been in effect, Anime on the internet has been expanding as well.
According to the Internet age early in the 1990s, Anime was slowly approaching to its fans diversely across the web. Different websites were made to display different Anime series by giving the visitors content to come back for. Around this time, Anime fans were more into searching for their favorite Anime series and finding media such as images and screenshots from the specific shows that they watched and enjoyed. Inspired by Japanese Animation, these fans were verily into drawing their own Anime pictures. When this trend vastly became popular, fans began to submit their Anime fan art to websites, so that others can view their work. This, however, was only its starting point as Anime started to reach out to thousands of people.

Hentai

The reason I say this is because ‘hentai‘, unlike pornography, does not degrade women, and especially not in the same manner as pornography. Interesting fact actually – ‘hentai’ originally came about in Japan as porn was frowned upon due to its degradation of women.
It was because of this that the Japanese realized that they could still get their ‘thrills’ without having to degrade women, if they just made an anime with a sex theme.

And thus ‘hentai’ was born. It’s strange to think that it was created just to stop women being seen as objects for mans’ pleasure and abuse. And in a way, it was a truly groundbreaking creation. Since then, pornography has become common place in Japan, however, it is still not appreciated as much as ‘hentai’ – after all, in anime you can create any scenario, commit any acts, without the character REALLY being involved, used and abused etc.

With the introduction of ‘hentai’ have come many sub-genres, such as ‘Yaoi’ (men with men) and ‘Lolicon’ (Children with adults). The latter is a touchy subject here in the UK. Although ‘theoretically’ ‘lolicon’ has nothing to do with pedophilia since it’s just a cartoon, however, in European countries it is still frowned upon…though I’m almost positive if you looked at the statistics with regards to pedophiles in Japan in correspondence with those in the UK, you would probably find that the UK has the highest crime rate.

Manga’s History

While Manga seems to be growing ever more popular, which often leads many to believe that it’s a relatively modern creation it’s actually been around (in its early form) for over a thousand years.
The tradition of telling stories with a series of sequential images has been a part of Japanese culture long before what we now know as present day Manga ever came about. In fact Toba Sojo, an 11th century painter-priest, has been attributed with the earliest examples of pre-manga art with his animal scroll paintings which satirised the Buddhist priesthood.
Over the years the religious world refined the art, even as the nation was torn apart by warfare.
Another credited for development of modern Manga is Katsushika Hokusai, the famous 19th century artist and printmaker while his woodblock print images of 36 views of Mount Fuji are known the world over, his manga sketches are some of the best examples of humour in Japanese art. Hokusai was also the first to use the term Manga to describe his sketches though he didn’t invent the word himself.
Adult storybooks – text surrounding ink brush illustrations became popular within the middle class Japanese population. Printed with woodblocks these books were similar to modern manga in that they covered a wide variety of subjects from fantasy and drama to humour and even pornography. Shunga (Erotic Art) and Yokai (Ghosts and Monsters) are other forms of popular Japanese Art that have influenced modern manga
By the 19th century the art became influenced by western culture and the illustrated story books became a mix of Japanese and Western Cartoons.
As it progressed many say that Osamu Tezuka was the father of Modern Manga, his most popular creation was Mighty Atom (or Astro Boy). His Manga debut came in 1947 with his New Treasure Island a comic that was produced cheaply and sold 400,000 copies with this success he was able to develop a following of young manga artists eagre to continue with what he had started. These would soon broaden and from here the young adults that started reading those earlier comics would continue to read manga as adults and with that is it said that modern manga was born.

Adult manga

Japanese pop culture includes Japanese animation, movies, and also things that inspire a good number of Japanese animation and movies. This inspiration is the legendary Japanese pop culture phenomenon known as Manga, and it is becoming more and more of a global hit.
While Manga may look like graphic novels, they are actually made for a much wider audience than such media traditionally is in the West. If you think comic books are just for kids, you have not seen much Japanese Manga perhaps. In Japan, it is normal to see a businessman dressed in a nice suit and tie, solemnly reading a Manga book in the train to or from the office. Perhaps it is because of the speed of digestion of illustrated material in a nation known for efficiency that Manga is such a normal part of everyday media.
The storyline is, of course, more adult-oriented than illustrated books of a similar kind in many areas of the world. Many tourists may initially be quite surprised to look over at what someone sitting next to them on a train may be skimming through on their way home. This adult storyline certainly is not just for the male gender, and women may have their own genre of adult Manga to choose from.
Manga, which translates as whimsical pictures, is documented as having its modern origins in the era of Japanese occupation by allied forces, after WWII, during the years 1945-1952. While the cultural influences from the West during those times were obviously a major factor in inspiring modern Manga, there were also many amazing classical Japanese artists who inspired this art form. Classical art known as Ukiyo-e, in particular, is likely responsible for much of the Manga style. It is even possible that the art form helped to shape western comic artists like Vincent Van Gogh. This kind of cross pollination is an amazing discovery that comes from the study of modern art.

Animated toons

We might think that cartoon animations are done with an incredible god-like technology. For people who don’t know how animations are made, they probably think no ordinary one can make create one. What they do not know is that animation can be done by just having a windows computer together with a windows movie maker plus ideas for the scenes.

Consider the following steps for creating animations:

Before anything else, make sure that you are creating a unique version of a cartoon. Before starting with the sketching, you need to already have an idea of what your animated cartoon will be like, and the scenes are already stored in your mind from beginning to its end.

First thing to do is to collect all the scenes and create the plot for the cartoon. It will take a lot of drawings. You will first be making a story that consists of lines, sticks, and figures before the sounds. All of these are done in the computer. If drawing by hand is easier for you, then you can draw the scenes on paper then you can later scan them.

Second step is to save all of the created scenes into a single folder. Import them into the ‘windows’ movie maker’. After that, drag them from the gallery so that they will form into a movie. Don’t worry if they aren’t perfectly arranged, you can continue editing them afterwards.

Third step is to put everything in and try editing the parts you want to be edited or changed. There are buttons and editing options you are going to have in the windows movie maker software which can help you edit the animation as you like it.

Next step is to save the entire edited and fixed animated cartoon that you made. Save it with the file name as the title of your cartoon.

As you play the cartoon along in repeat, you may see some imperfections, but you can just continue to edit it as much as you want. Just be patient, because it will obviously take a lot of editing, but you will sure to perfectly get the right movements in the end.

Always try to make sure that the animation, transitions, and timing all come together perfectly. A poorly made cartoon will look just like a slideshow if you do not take time to edit it.

That is how easy it takes to create computer animations. The good thing about this is that if you are still not happy with the results, you are always free to edit it the way you want. Have fun while you study the features of the movie maker. The longer you use it, the better your skills on animation will be.

Female Secrets

While there was a Japanese term for male-male (nanshoku) and male-female sex, joshoku or nyoshoku meaning ‘female love’, there was no such word to describe female-female sex or lesbianism. Most of the shunga’s I have come accross as a dealer in the past 15 years regarding explicitly female concentrated designs (approx. 20 !) depicted either isolated women masturbating using her fingers or a harigata (artificial phallus/dildo) or two intimate women using this same sexual device. Hokusai (1760-1849), the most famous Ukiyo-e master designed two lesbian ehon (book) prints including one with two awabi (abalone) divers using a sea cucumber. Up to now the only shunga featuring this subject that has been described in literature is Eiri’s famous design from his oban sized series ‘Models of Calligraphy’ (Fumi no kiyogaki) published in 1801. In their book ‘Shunga, the Art of Love in Japan’ (1975) Tom and Mary Evans make an interesting comparison with Eiri’s (they attribute it to Eisho) shunga design and the paintings of the influential post-impressionist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec:

“Whereas Toulouse-Lautrec concentrated on the emotional bond between the girls, and the sad emptiness of the way of life which thrust them into each other’s arms, Eisho (Eiri) was concerned with the physical details of their relationship. And while even such an open-minded artist as Lautrec felt that such details were more than could be reasonably presented to his public, for the Japanese they were the central feature of the design”. (Evans – ‘Shunga, the Art of Love in Japan’)

It must be emphasized that these images of lesbianism in shunga were the result of male fantasies, designed by men and intended for a male audience.

Homosexuality, in Japanese called nansoku meaning ‘male love’, was not an uncommon phenomenon during the Edo (today’s Tokyo) period in Japan. In the early years of the Tokugawa regime (early 17th century) men greatly outnumbered women in Edo. There were very strict rules imposed by the government inspired by the loyal standards of Confucianism which excluded women to participate in any kind of work with the exception of household tasks. These regulations and the shortage of women can be seen as deciding factors for the huge amount of homosexual activities. The most characteristic feature of the depictions in shunga of male-male sex is the relation between the two involved “lovers”. The leading and dominant male with his shaven head is always the older one, this on the basis of seniority or higher social status, while the subjected passive partner was a pre-pubescent or pubescent boy or a young man depicted with a unshaven forelock. These young boys are often shown in female cloths and therefore easily mistaken for girls. They served as pages to high ranking samurai’s, monks, wealthy merchants or older servants and were most desired during their adolesence especially between the age of 15 and 17 years when the anus was still without hair. There are also several shunga designs on the theme of threesome sex depicting one man (always a young male) in the midst of sexual intercourse with a female partner while being taken from behind by an intruder. In most shunga images representing man/youth anal intercourse, the genitalia of the young man are often concealed focusing the attention of the viewer on the garment and elegant lines of the body.
