Why is the concept of 'energy' so popular in anime? There are multitudes of shows that involve energy levels, powering up, shooting fire from their hands, etc. What's the deal?
Is there a similar concept in Shinto or something? I really don't know much about Japanese culture outside of their cartoons, movies, and video games.
Cause that shits been a concept since ancient times. Martial arts in Asian countries was all about inner energy
