Anime Sophistication

The manga aesthetic is embraced in North American culture

Implications - Though the anime aesthetic has always been appealing for fans of animation, it recently hit mainstream North American culture as a new, respected design form. The exoticism of manga, combined with its intricacy and playfulness, suits the consumer desire for escape from the mundane perfectly. This makes it an ideal aesthetic to adopt for brands looking to seem more lighthearted than competitors.
