West Meets East

Usually the saying has been “East meets West” noting back to when the West started their trading attempts in China and Japan. Ironic thing has been that the technology from the East has been eyeballing and shocking to Westerners as they have never seen stuff like that before.

In the form of Cinema, this applies just as well, as a lot of Asian influence has been placed upon Western Studios. Movies such as the Ring, Dark Water, and other horror flicks are and have been recreations of Japanese or even Korean Horror Films. Some people argue that Western Ways are that of copy and paste.

Anime is another example of how Eastern ideas have influenced the West. Manga has given rise to graphic novels in America, Anime has produced ideas to Cartoons. Astro Boy was of one such example.
