yes it is.
cartoons are what you call moving pictures....which are called animation and since anime is just the short verison of animation they are indeed cartoons.



you hv a point, however, anime is not cartoons, it is a different form of animation. But they cannot be considered cartoons. Anime is on a much higher level both intellectually and artistically and is most times considered an art. Also, most of the technology used in today's graphics originate in those used to create anime and the original sci-fi anime was what fueled the start and development of using and developing said graphics.
it doesn't matter if it's a different animation or if it's considered art more times than american animation. animation is animation. regardless of how it's drawn.



i think ur misunderstanding, yes it is animation - that's not what i'm objecting to. It's calling it "cartoons" that i am objecting to. Anime and cartoons are not the same thing, yes they are both different styles of animation, but they are NOT the same thing.
no i understand what i was saying was you can't say japan animation isn't cartoons just because of different drawing styles. like i said before..."animation is animation" aslo there plenty of anime that can disagree with anime being on a higher level of intellect and art. shin-chan being one of them.

They just appeal to different audiences and have to meet to different appeals and needs.


Yes they take about the same amount of time, and yes they are both animation. All I'm saying is that they are NOT the same thing. As for anime is on a higher level, that is just my opinion based on what I've seen. You don't have to agree with it, and I really couldn't care less whether you do or not. As for the "verbal diahrea" may i just point out that i'm not the one who started this argument, I merely stated my opinion, the one who quoted me is the one who wanted to argue.


lol there no point gettin raged up over one or two disagreements on an online website.

Your opinion is highly biased and said very defiantly as if it were a fact lol. To say something is more intellectual and is on a higher level than something, that isnt an opinion, thats more a statement.

And that's quite a childish way to put things lol. Always blame it on someone else. You knew fine right your opinion was going going to be met with an opposition...

no question, Japanese by far. I have to say American cartoons have fallen to a new low recently. -_-' They're so... I don't know, pointless and stupid to put it plainly. Not to offend anyone. Just my opinion. :]
lol that's so sad, since I'm american myself. XD

yes there are several that are completely brainless, but the majority are not. And I'm not saying that anime isn't cartoons based on JUST drawing styles. I'm saying it based on the wider variety of subjects that anime goes over, the graphics are different, the drawing styles are different, cultures they come from are different, the audiences they appeal to are different, the emotional level is different, anime (usually not always) delves more deeply into people and situations than cartoons do, etc.. Yes there are exceptions to all but i'm thinking about the majority.

NO! It's not! Nobody seems to understand that a cartoon is just a drawing. It has nothing to do with the animation. Animation is the act of bringing these cartoons to life. Know the difference, damnit!
....whut?

animation is moving pictures which bring drawings to life. that's what i was trying to say. >_>
animation=moving pictures
cartoons are the moving pictures that come to life no?
drawing are as well? then im sorry. i was unaware. i thought drawing were just the step before.

By the way, this is the biggest crock of shit I've read on this whole site. Americans don't steal Japanese animation. In fact, it's the other way. How the hell do you think animation came to Japan? Through Disney, moron.


True, Disney cartoons are amazing. ^_^ One thing that contradicts what I just said lol. Uh, you can't really prove either Japan or America stole animation from eachother...

American cartoons are only good for comedy (it's not even that great either)

And Japanese animes are good for every genre (except porn)


Are you serious? Have you seen the american take on hentai?

American cartoons aren't actually that bad imo. I love anime but still no anime character could replace He-Man, Liono, or GI Joe.

I'm really not "raged up" i really couldn't care less how this goes, I'm just tired and bored... And I'm just stating my opinions. And yes my opinions are statements because I'm not confused about what I think. I certainly don't state my opinions as questions. And, the same could be said of everyone's opinions, we're all biased in one way or another, even you, in fact, most people's opinions are based (to a certain extent) off some of the biases they have. Yes i knew my opinion was going to have opposition, and I know that I hold blame too. I'm not putting it all on him/her. I was just pointing out that he/she is the one who started things. And I don't "always" blame it on someone else, if i had started this argument i would take the blame for that. But i didn't, though I do take the blame for continuing it in the forums when i really should've done it through pms.

Yep, you're right....
Anime-Japanese style of motion-picture animation
cartoons-animated drawings
There's a distict drawing style and many differences, but anime is like Japanese cartoons really.
I don't think anime is short for animations though. Sounds like a good conclusion, but I doubt that...
So they really are about the same.
