Nijigen/two-dimensional space

The concept er ci yuan (two-dimensional space) came from Japan. Japanese people use the concept er ci yuan to describe a series of anime and manga depicted two-dimensionally. In China, the Nijigen industry has become a hot-spot for investment. Besides, a great number of young Chinese people have become addicted to two-dimensional characters. Hence, another related term er ci yuan kong (Nijikon, Nijigen Complex/Addiction or 2D Complex/Addiction) is used to describe the crazed mentality of these young people who think that two-dimensional anime or game characters are visually, physically or emotionally more attractive than real-life people.
