The subculture is a way of life…
Subculture is a community of people whose beliefs, views on life and behavior are different from conventional or simply hidden from the public, which distinguishes them from the broader concepts of culture, a branch of which they are. Most often, subcultures transferred to a separate ideological concept, as in the case of LGBT as hard to call a culture to which she belonged.
Considered belonging to a subculture of stigma is not worth it, unless it grows beyond human society. Defiance of representatives of some flows become so stereotyped, that the very name has become synonymous with subcultures.
Subculture Animations Animation is one of the youngest subculture in Russia. It became popular in 19902000 years. But this subculture appeared in Japan. Animation can be a man of any age, sex, social status and nationality. The representatives of this subculture watch Japanese cartoons which are called anime and read the Japanese comics-manga.
Animations divide on some category: • • • Kosplears Mangaka Classical animations People is engaged fan-art Otaky
Kosplears are people who change clothes in costumes by the hero anime and play various interpretations. They always sew costumes themselves, they buy wigs and attributes in special shops. The price of such costumes reaches 5 thousand rubles.
Kosplay is an original theatre of characters anime, mangas, the Japanese video games and also historical Japanese costumes (a kimono ).

Talking about the appearance of animation • A distinctive feature of an animation is his bag. There should be an image of the character of anime and many badges on it. • As many animations make unusual hairdressers and paint hair in different colours. • Among girl the image of the Japanese schoolgirl is distributed: short skirt, blouse, tie and gulfs.

Animations listen to the Japanese music, adore the Japanese dishes, culture, art and consider this country as an embodiment of the certain ideal. Animations are against drugs and try to lead healthy way of life: why should we spend money for cigarettes, alcohol and drugs when it is possible to buy a disk, a bag or a T-shirt with the image of a favourite hero.
What do they want?
• • They want to express their own identity. They want to show off. They want to be in collective. They want to help people around and to find themselves.
The majority of people of the senior generation don’t like subcultures. They think that teenagers join this or that subculture under the influence of the bad companies or thus try to make the protest against society. They suppose that the subculture is connected with such concepts as disrespect, callousness, immorality. In society people think that animations are people who are either children or adults, their life is not folded. Animations are alike gotts, emoes and punks. People, who consider so, actually are mistaken very strong.
Why have I chosen this subculture? • I have chosen this subculture because animations are colouful among the crowd. • Animations aren’t afraid of being not similar to others.
• I consider that this subculture is the best, compared with all subcultures. They don’t make any harm they are in collective among those who understand them.
I think that the society has prejudices and doesn’t trust aminations. This leads to misunderstanding between children and their parents.

The ravers — youth subculture of constant participants of raves — the parties of the electronic dance music which has received mass popularity in 1988 in Great Britain. The rave – from an English word, rave – delirium to rave, incoherent speech. Also – to roar, rage, storm, howl.
The word “rave” • In the late 1980 s, the word "rave" was adopted to describe the subculture that grew out of the acid house movement. Activities were related to the party atmosphere of Ibiza, a Mediterranean island in Spain, frequented by British, Italians, and German youth on vacation. The fear that a certain number of rave party attendees used "club drugs" such as MDMA, cocaine, amphetamines and, more recently, ketamine, was taken by authorities as a pretext to ban those parties altogether.
• By 1991, organisations such as Fantazia, Universe, Raindance and Amnesia House were holding massive legal raves in fields and warehouses around the country. Vision at Pophams airfield in August 1992, attracted 40, 000 people. Another notable event was Universe's Tribal Gathering in 1993. • The illegal free party scene also reached its zenith for that time after a particularly large festival, when many individual sound systems such as Bedlam, Circus Warp, DIY, and Spiral Tribe set up near Castlemorton Common.
• In the late 80 s, rave culture began to filter through from English ex-pats and DJs who would visit Europe. However, rave culture's major expansion in North America is often credited to Frankie Bones, who after spinning a party in an aircraft hangar in England helped organize some of the earliest known American raves in New York City that maintained a consistent core audience. After this, hundreds of smaller promotional groups sprung up across the east coast, and later the west coast, causing a true "scene" to develop. • Raves were also represented in mainstream culture, even this early in their existence. The film Party Monster (2003) shared aspects of the rave scene via anachronism, since it was set during the "Club Kid" era of the late 1980 s and early 1990 s.
Los Angeles had Raves early as 1988. The early rave scene thrived in Los Angeles due to the fact that the city had such a large, multi-cultural population, a dry/temperate climate, and vast amounts of space which made locations plentiful. Warehouses were often broken into or hired (often through deceptive means to unsuspecting owners), a sound system and lighting was set up on the day of the event, and people would phone the info lines on the backs of flyers on the evening of the party to find out the location. This would often involve first going to a map point, which would be a predetermined location where people would get tickets and directions to the actual event, or directions to another map point. The map points would often be used to create excitement and anticipation for the rave, but also to allude police and large numbers of people loitering outside of the venue. Raves would often range from smaller, more intimate low-budget events, to large, full scale productions with multiple international DJ's and acts, expensive lasers and visual effects, and props often in theme with the event. Some of the better known early events were Alice's House, Under The Paw Patch, Love. Sex. Dance, Grape Ape, Gilligan's, Truth, and Double Hit Mickey.
San Francisco has long been a Mecca for ravers from all over the world and true to form a lot of the early promoters and DJs were from the UK and Europe. For almost ten years after the initial raves took place, one could find up to 2 to 4 parties happening a weekend and sometimes on the same night. There was no curfew in place, which allowed the SF scene to explode by the late 90's when venues would have up to 20, 000 people every weekend;
