It IS short for animation.

アニメーション = Animeeshon (animation).

Then they shortened it to just アニメ (anime).

The word itself comes from the French phrase "Dessins Animes" (pr. dessauns animes), which means "animated cartoon" or "moving cartoon." The abbreviation to "anime" is specifically for Japanese animated cartoons.

Animated Characters, using computer and drawing. Also, Japanese people started this, so Nihongo(Which means japanese....) was started to create a show for entertainment to other people....
