Anime, at it's most simple, is a form of hand-drawn or computer animation. And, outside of Japan, anime is used to refer specifically to animation from Japan, or Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters, and fantastical themes. This leaves a pretty rich area for storytelling, so it's no wonder that many anime series have been adapted to live-action movies.
