You can see anime almost everywhere including adverts. They are used in branding for different brands of water and snacks. You can see these posters in trains, airports, and school buses. In fact, it has become a cultural force that seems to influence the entire world.

The interesting part is that not everybody likes it. In fact, a lot of people don't like the commercialization of anime. Today, the most successful anime is being turned into a novel, video game, film, or Manga. Similarly, Disney produces several of these products in addition to the films.
