5 Cartoons with strong Japanese influence (Pseudo-animes)
Yes, cartoons with strong Japanese influence, the so-called Pseudo-animes. It is a fact that Japanese culture inspires in many ways. And not least for that kind of work, the cartoon. The pseudo-anime definition refers to something false. But don't take it to the pejorative side. I will cite positive examples: "I have a pseudo, I am Pseudo-rico and pseudo-normal… Hit a pseudo-felicidade just remembering these pseudo-verdades… Yes, my life is a pseudo-verdade… " Wait, that's not positive!!!
Wow!!! I just loved that drawing. I don't remember how old I was at the time, but I was probably a giant Mongol thinking he's a samurai and trying to imitate Jack… A useful curiosity for you who accompanied the adventures of Jack. The drawing did not have a conclusion at that time, being serialized only between 2001 and 2004. In 2017, it was produced the fifth season, giving completion to the series. You didn't know that? It's time to see!
Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi
Another drawing I loved, I thought he differed from the other drawings. Cartoon Network was in partnership with TV Tokyo in the production of the drawing, namely, it is not totally a pseudo-anime. The design is based on the Japanese band Puffy AmiYumi, spinning around the characters Ami and Yumi – the animated versions of Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura – who are always traveling to do concerts along with their music producer Kaz. Curiosity, the design was the leading audience, passing through the broadcast of the World Cup football!
I loved him at first, but then I lost interest. My disinterest is due to the repeated loop transmission of exhaustion! I was always curious about the ending, but it never passed, they just rebuted everything! But then I found out there was no ending, they canceled the drawing of nothing! I was doomed to fill the bag. But after a long time, I finally witnessed the end (almost that) thanks to the Nostalgia channel on YouTube. At the end of the day, I ended up loving it again.
The Young Titans (Teen Titan)
For me, the best design I've ever seen (drawing huh), just epic. One of the highlights was his opening, which still I think fuck, more fuck than the opening of Attack on Titan (sasageyo! Sasageyo, No! Shinzou wo sasageyo!… I'm sure you sang in the tone!) … And not to go there, the opening had two versions, one in English and one in Japanese (which is sung by the band Puffy AmiYumi!!! Cool, right?). The English version for more serious episodes and the Japanese version for funnier episodes (your mind exploded now, didn't it?). The differential in the series was its climate, always well balanced, with serious moments and fun moments. Recently the series came back with more Cartoonescos, titled Teen Titan Go!, having its target audience more childish.
Avatar: The Legend of Aang
Who never had a chunnibyou crisis trying to control the elements? Water, Earth, fire, air… Obviously, my favorite element was called all. I wanted to be the famous stolen character, have all the elements, wanted to be the Avatar… God, just remembering gives me a shame!!! Indeed, the design has made the greatest success for its originality. But this thing of the four elements was not the drawing it defined, it is present in various works of literary, plastic and philosophical expression. It is believed that the elements are linked to the origin of life, the basis of everything. Funny, huh? Oh, I must quote the continuation of this beautiful design, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, which many consider even better than the first.
Bonus: Marvel Anime (Series made by Madhouse)
It's a series of series. It's actually anime, so it's like bonus here. It was produced by the Japanese studio Madhouse, having only the accompaniment of Marvel Studios. With 12 episodes each series, based on Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men and Blade. The series were the gateway to many people who had prejudice with animes, those more welcomed, fans of cartoons and HQ. Opening the mind to new possibilities was great for these people. I must cite the series Ultimate Spider-man, which can be a pseudo-anime, its traits resemble very well Japanese animation.
Bonus 2: The Adventures of Jackie Chan (Chinese influence)
Its main influence is Chinese, but also has Japanese influence, besides having other influences from other countries as well. I'll cite some Japanese influences. The character Tohru himself is Japanese (the big aspirant to sumo). The masks of Shadowkhan, which possess peculiar ingredients such as samurai hair (equates to Samurai honor), Japanese monkey Tear, Japanese steel (reference to Kanana) and Japanese silk (reference to yukata). And to conclude, the most giant and horrious demon, Po Kong, the demon of the mountain, with liberation portal resided in Tokyo. Wow, that's a lot of nostalgia. Good morning! Good morning! Good morning!
Besides being the most influenced by Japanese culture, they are the most nostalgic!
Do you have any idea of my situation now? In a few moments writing the post I started laughing, crying, all this for remembering the good times I had. I thank you for having a good childhood (I was actually a giant Mongol thinking I was a child). I also believe that you had a good time remembering all this. Priceless memories, for sure. And taking advantage of you are here, quote that nostalgic drawing in the comments!
