As we all know, Japanese culture, since the emergence of anime as more or less a mainstream form of entertainment, has an incredibly large impact on the American society. Conventions, anime themselves, anime-themed or styled games… it’s becoming quite a huge thing! This week in anime club we’re going to be celebrating the influence of anime on american culture with several homegrown cartoons made in glorious anime style! We’ll be watching Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. More info after the jump!
