When you do a Google search, you can type in almost anything and something will come back.
When you do the same search in a library article database, you will most likely get nothing.
Library databases require that you search by concept or keyword and connect these using AND and OR.
Before you start your research, you should spend at least a few minutes brainstorming keywords that you can use in a database.
That way, if your first search doesn't get you what you need, you have other keywords on hand to use immediately.
Consider the research question:
Is anime a worthwhile tool for learning and teaching people about Japanese culture?
