|First Appearance:||Toonopolis: Gemini|
Animetown is the section of Toonopolis where anime & manga inspired characters live. It is one of the largest sections of the cartoon city, including mountains, villages, and a robust history. Gemini visits Animetown in Toonopolis: Gemini to confront Anchihiiroo, one of the Rogue toons encouraged by The Shadowy Figure. Prior to that, Animetown's history was explored more deeply in Anchihiiroo - Origin of an Antihero, the novella that told the story of how Yoshi of Higeki became Anchihiiroo in the first place. Animetown is the primary location of the famous Ninja-Pirate War (in addition to Pirate Isles, which are referred to by Animetown residents as Kaizoku Isles). Animetown has lots of tropes familiar to a wide range of anime & manga materials, such as jokes about subtitles or dubbing, super-exaggerated physical responses (eg, nose bleeds and enlarged heads), and epic battle scenes with posing and move-naming-screams.
