Course Detail: ANIM104 - Anime and Japanese Culture (Middle & High School)

Anime is a cartoon, right? When you think of anime do you imagine large eyes, colorful hair, and funny outfits?  If only it were that simple. Anime has always been used to tell the story of Japanese culture and society. The Japanese culture reflected in anime is so pervasive, yet elusive, and this course guides you where to look. 

Explore Japanese and American cultures through the lens of anime. Learn about Japanese tradition, language, family, food, festivals, holidays, school life and even manners. Find out how ideas, culture and themes are illustrated in anime and the effects they have had on shaping modern Japanese culture. Set your imagination free! Create your own characters, storyline, and drawings based on what you have learned. Develop your own flip-book manga that tells your story and so much more!

LUNCH: Students staying for full day or for both morning and afternoon sessions can bring or buy their lunch.  All students will eat lunch on Campus in The Commons, a small food court.
