A Brief History of Anime

By Vadim Newquist Jul 10, 2014

10 of 15

Although the Japanese feature film market continued to grow during the 90s, the real money was being made through its animated shows that were finding tremendous success abroad. Titles like Pokemon, Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon all became household names (at least to anyone born from the 80s forward). These shows didn’t have the adult edge that much of the entertainment produced in previous decades contained, but were delightful nonetheless.
