Freelance Anime Artists for Hire

Anime is the Japanese style of animation that has increasingly become popular worldwide, owing to a number of Japanese cartoons such as Death Note and Naruto. Manga comics are very popular worldwide. To put it simply, anime is the Japanese term for all forms of animation. Because of its origin, the term anime has become synonymous with the Japanese style of animation. Though essentially a type of cartoon, anime usually have visually distinct features for characters and a "limited animation" style for depicting movement.

Anime can be done in many genres, with some of the popular ones being action, adventure, comedy, drama, the slice of life, fantasy, magic, supernatural, horror, mystery, psychological, romance, sci-fi and much more. A cartoonist of these anime creations is known as an anime creator and is a multimedia artist.
