Types of Anime
OVA (Original Video Animation): Of course, not all of you know about this term. But, you must notice when you watch your favorite anime, you see the word of OVA. After I read further about this, OVA is like an additional story of the anime that already end or the epilog of some anime. In short, is like a bonus episode.
ONA (Original Net Animation): It’s not same like OVA. If OVA broadcast on the TV, ONA only broadcast through the internet. So, you can only watch this anime only on the internet. The example of ONA anime is Gundam Thunderbolt. Also, ONA doesn’t have an exact release date, unlike usual anime series. In another word, you will watch streaming anime
OAD (Original Anime DVD): Like the title says. This anime is published on a DVD. In the term of meaning, it’s no different with OVA. Actually, this term is not used anymore. It’s already changed into OVA.
Movie: It’s same like you watch normal movie film. The only differences, this one is the cartoon or anime version. The story can be an original story or continuation from the previous anime title. What I don’t like from anime movie usually they will create it in a part. For example like Digimon Tri movie, they cut the production into being five parts movie.
Special Episode: Even though it’s special on the surface it’s not. This one created only to give all pleasure of the anime that already end. Also, the episode per minute it’s around 10 minutes. Special episode and anime version doesn’t share the continuation story.
So, what is anime according to you? After you read all the info about it, you already know how to answer that questions. In the meaning anime and cartoon is same. But the differences, Anime offer to the varieties of people. So, not only child who can see it, adult also can see it without any problem. Also, Anime have many types, unlike cartoon.
