*Yes, I’m aware some people don’t’ consider this an anime since this is a work by ‘western’ artists. However, in Japanese, ‘anime’ is just derived from the English word ‘animation, and describes all animated work, no matter their country of origin. So to the endless sea of people who have been messaging me on Pinterest and leaving messages saying that ‘this ain’t an anime tho… #shade’. RELAX, and enjoy.
