Summer and anime: the loving bond


Even the characters of this anime, K-ON, can't help but enjoy the summer

Summer and Anime mix together well, this is a well-known fact, but why do you think that is? Many of you probably have some idea, but I put some serious thought into it, and I have come up with several ideas as to why.

Well, first let’s start with something simple, School is out, it’s hot, and sitting down and read or watching manga or anime seems like a good idea. I find myself sitting in front of computer doing such things in the summer. I remember I spent one whole summer dedicated to several series, I read over 600 chapters of manga and watched over 300 episodes of anime. My friend did something similar this summer, choosing to stay indoors throughout her cruise through Europe to finish up the anime Soul Eater, which brings me to my next point, friends.

I remember the first time I held one of those amazing comics; it was a hot day in the middle of summer. Friends will often be more willing to pick up that manga or watch that anime in the summer, can you guess why? There are many reasons, but my best guess would be that it’s hot and most of them don’t have much else to do. Once one of them has found one they like, it often leads to a full on spree as they discover the wonders of manga and anime.

One of the other things I have noticed is that a good many new series seem to come up in late spring and early summer, giving potential fans an early start at their summer spree, a chance to discover the series before they lock themselves up in their room for the summer. Companies seem to know that summer is a great time for release, so they cater to it. Having sales, giving out some free merchandise, releasing more frequently, making sure that no true anime fan can resists their offer.

With the ability to pull up any manga or anime on the internet, it’s not surprising that many people have stumbled up the interest.  Summer is a time for people of that interest to lock themselves in a room with a computer, some manga, a T.V, and a wide amount of food and water until the season passes. After all, it’s hot and most of them would be bored or have nothing better to do anyway.
