Anime is the type of Japanese hand-drawn or computer animation. The word anime is the abbreviated pronunciation of animation in Japanese, where the term is used in all animation. Outside of Japan, anime is used to refer specifically to the type of animation from Japan or as a Japanese style of animation that is often characterized by colorful graphics, fantastical themes, and vibrant characters. For simplicity, many Westerners define anime as Japanese. The earliest commercial Japanese animation dates back to 1917, and Japanese anime production has since continued to increase steadily in popularity. The characteristic anime style of art emerged in the 1960s with the anime of Osamu Tezuka and spread internationally in the late twentieth century, developing both a large domestic and international audience. Anime is distributed theatrically, by way of television broadcasts, directly to home media, and over the Internet.

The anime industry consists of more than 430 anime production studios. Some of the major names include Studio Ghibli, Gainax, and Toei Animation. Despite comprising only a fraction of Japan's domestic film market, anime makes up a majority of the Japanese DVD sales. Anime has also seen huge international success after the rise of English-dubbed programming. Studio Ghibli is one of the most popular Japanese studios for anime. Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation film studio that is located in Koganei, Tokyo, Japan. Studio Ghibli is best known for its anime feature films and has also produced several short films, commercials, television and one television film. The studio was founded on June 15, 1985, after the success of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind released in 1984, with funding by Tokuma Shoten. This rise in international popularity has resulted in non-Japanese productions using the anime style of art, but these works are usually described as an anime-influenced animation rather than anime proper. Japanese animation began in the early part of the 20th century when Japanese filmmakers experimented with the animation techniques that were also pioneered in Germany, France, and Germany, the United States, and Russia.

A claim for the earliest Japanese animation is by Katsudō Shashin and a private work that has no date by an unknown creator. The first professional and publicly displayed works of anime began to appear in 1917. Animators such as Oten Shimokawa and Seitarou Kitayama produced several works, with the oldest surviving film being Kouchi's Namakura Gatana, which is a two-minute clip of a samurai who was trying to test a new sword on his target only to suffer defeat. In 1923 the Great Kantō earthquake resulted in widespread destruction of Japan's infrastructure and the destruction of Oten Shimokawa's warehouse, which destroyed most of the early anime works.
