Anime is the collective name and abbreviation for animation and manga, used rather sparingly in other languages. With the development of modern media technology, animation (animation or anime) and manga (comic book, manga; especially story comics) are increasingly related to each other and both are often combined as "anime". Common expressions are " anime fans ", " anime exhibitions ", " anime industry ", etc. In mainland China, there are also magazines with the name "anime magazine", which spread this new term to the whole society, especially among teenagers. In many places, such as Japan and Greater China, Japanese anime is very popular and has become a cultural fad, so when "anime" is mentioned in Chinese, it mainly refers to Japanese anime or Japanese animation. Manga is the English translation of the Japanese word "manga". Manga itself also encompasses the meaning of the manga industry. In addition, the Chinese translation of the English word cartoon is also a combination of cartoon and animation but it is sometimes used to refer specifically to American animation, etc. Cartoons have two artistic characteristics: firstly, they have a linguistic function, even if they are silent, they can express a certain meaning; secondly, they have a harmonious nature, i.e. they are funny and humorous or satirical.
