Anime is very popular and instantly recognizable Japanese form of animation, created from Manga – Japanese comic style. Anime is well liked worldwide and it’s not hard to wonder why – its art style is captivating and anime plot is memorable, sometimes very serious like in cyberpunk series Ghost in The Shell and sometimes very silly, and equally fun like in classics Dragonball or Azumanga Daioh. Reddit community is very devoted to anime and manga and so they’ve created a lot of great subreddits where you can discuss and find a lot of artwork, wallpapers, manga chapters and anime episodes. Check following list to find how Reddit loves anime and browse most interesting subreddits for Otaku gadgets – which is Japanese word for “anime and manga fan”.
