The word anime is an abbreviated Japanese pronunciation of "animation." Anime is a little to hard to compare with manga, but at the same time one "usually" comes from the other. For me anime seems like the animated expression of manga, but how much of the original idea is lost after is transform into anime? For many manga artist the idea of transforming its art into anime is quite a profitable option, and is a way to express their story to a broader audience. More people watch anime, why? well it requires less effort, and its easier. When you read manga, you have to actually be able to read it, and at some small level imagine the movement of the characters; however, with anime all you have to do is turn on the t.v. and watch. Anime also applies to a younger audience, simply because little kids that don't know how to read yet can watch anime.
