So today people in India don’t know much about Anime. They don’t know that they have seen anime in their childhood like Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. The parents in India feel that these are cartoons. If you are watching anime and any friend of yours will make fun like you are not grown or matured , still watching cartoons. The person will be demoralized and will feel embarrassed to watch some more and eventually stop. We will take about Current State of Anime In India.
Wrong Targeting of Audience
Wrong conception is present in mind of Indian people that animated stuff like TV series or Movies are only for children.
In India the anime are targeted for children. But the distributors and Censor board gives argument that these are Violent and provide wrong values to the children and cut alot of sences and change dialogues.
They don’t realize that anime are for more older and matured individuals like Teenagers and above 15 or 16. So this is all consequences of wrong perception and wrong targeting of the audiences.
Values Taught by Anime
Parents first don’t realize what anime is. Then they think that it is just waste of time for their children.
They don’t realize that other than fighting and violence. Anime teaches real life skills like Hardship, Freindship, Determination to wards the goal, Courage, Time management in life, Teamwork, It also changes way if thinking towards the life, It improves the creative part of child’s Brain and many more social skills and Values. Which children are lacking these days.
Bad Indian Animation and Story Of Cartoons
India animations like chota bheem, mighty raju are all garbage. They are more unrealistic than anime that one person is getting stronger by eating Ladoo or Samosa. No disrespect to any Indian created or Animator but these types of story telling are making children more passive. They should animate educational stories from Maharashtra and Ramayana as well as India history, but with right story telling without any Mirch Masala to change story. These will be more impact full for younger audience rather than adult anime or wrong impractical Indian cartoons.
Improving Situation of Anime in India
After the easily approach of internet to large number of people the masses are coming to know about anime , manga and good Indian as well as foreign content. With the help of platforms anime and manga fans are engaging and talking about their favorite anime , manga and movies. Companies like Shonen Jump has been reacting in good way as they have introduce changes in their platform so that Indian can read manga freely and easily. These are good signs for healthy audience whose is getting to no about great content and animations in the world of Anime in India.
How to watch Anime In India
In India the availability of anime series is a problem because anime is not aired on TV. But we can watch them on streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video but these are paid. Even some are also available on YouTube.
And with this increasing popularity in India the chance are websites like funimation and cruncyroll will be available in India. Some people are watching pirated series I am totally against it, but in the long run this will create more popularity of Anime. Ultimately encouraging anime distributor to launch more anime on TV and streaming services in India.
