we love Anime, not because we are afraid of reality. Anime is just a higher version of reality which only we can understand

Cultural integration and revival (1999 to 2005)
In late 1999 respected newspapers such as Le Mondegave critical acclaim to Hiroyuki Okiura's Jin-Roh, and in 2000, Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke became a commercial success.
In 2004, Mamoru Oshii's Innocence: Ghost in the Shell 2became the first animation finalist in the prestigious International Film Festival of Cannes, which demonstrates a radical perspective change and a social acceptance of Japaneseanime / manga. Since 2005, contemporary Japanese series such as Naruto, Initial D, Great Teacher Onizuka, Blue Genderor Gunslinger Girl appeared on new, analog / digital terrestrial (public) and on satellite / broadband (private) channels. As the highly aggressive competition who raged once between, the sole two or three available channels no more exists in the new, vast, and segmented French TV offer, theanimeis doing a revival in France. In 2011, 40% of the comics published in France were manga.
