But he's still wrong, as it says that it is not fully anime.

Not to sure. If it had a anime-look, I'd say yes. But it leans more on looking like a cartoon.

But still, just because something was made in America and not Japan, and it looks like an anime, does not mean it is automatically not an anime. I mean come on. If you showed someone something that looked like it is an anime, they would think it is an anime. But if you told them it was made in America and not Japan, would you change your mind? If you do, thats just plain ignorant.


Opinion =/= Fact
Even if you don't change you mind, it still cannot be presented as an anime.

If I were to think Batman (comic) was a manga, but was notified that it was made in America, and I don't change my mind of Batman, it'd be an opinion, as it clearly is not a fact.


Yea, my thoughts about certain things being called anime or not is an opinion, because most of the world has become ignorant, and made it official that if something looks like an anime, but not made in japan, it is clearly not an anime.

I mean why would you create a name for something that looks like the exact same thing, but made in a different country? Thats like saying "Because this looks like an anime, but was not made in Japan, it is not worthy of the name anime. ". The word Japanimation, seems like a pointless word to create if the word anime already exists. It's just telling people that an anime can only be called "anime" if it was made in Japan. Which makes no sense at all.

To me, the definition of anime is a drawing with a specific drawing style to it. You could say the same thing about comic books. They both have a certain drawing style to it. Cause it's kind of easy to tell a manga and a comic book apart by looking at it, as to cartoons and anime. And to answer your thought about Batman, if it looks like a manga, it's a manga. If it looks like a comic book, it's a comic book. It REALLY should not matter where it was made.

Wait... as far as I'm concerned, this was made fact much before Avatar (only thing I can think of that would relate to anime) became an anime.


I mean why would you create a name for something that looks like the exact same thing

False statement, I daresay. Avatar is completely different from types of drawn examples of anime. Therefore, I do not think you can say that Avatar has the exact same drawing as "anime" in general.


Thats like saying "Because this looks like an anime, but was not made in Japan, it is not worthy of the name anime. ".

Really now, what you've just stated was actually am implication. So you cannot really saw that's what they meant. And Avatar doesn't "look" like an anime.

Literally, no.


Lol um...did you forget that I never said that Avatar looked like an anime, and that it leans more on looking like a cartoon? And an example of something looking like an anime, is like Cowboy Bebob, Zero No Tsukaima, Code Geass etc. Of course the artist of the anime almost always slightly change the way they draw their anime. But even though they do, most people can still look at it and call it an anime.

This is kind of Off topic but...what I'm trying to say is that the people that think anime can only be made in Japan are ignorant. But a lot of people think like that, making others think it too, making it a fact, and my thought an opinion. But of course,I'm always sticking with my opinion.

No, I don't consider Avatar: The Last Airbender to be an anime. To me, animes are Japanese cartoons. Avatar is not Japanese-made, even if its illustration seems to resemble more closely to anime than typical American cartoon.

A lot of people do, but I don't. anime is japanese animation, and avatar is not from japan. it is from the US, therefore it is not.

Also, I fail to see how you fail to understand that Cowboy Bebop, Zero no Tsukaima or Code Geass look like anime when they are anime.

Anime (アニメ, Anime?) (pronounced [anime] listen (help·info) in Japanese, but typically pronounced /ˈænɪmeɪ/, /ˈænɪmə/, /ə'naɪm/, or /'ænaɪm/ in English) is an abbreviation of the English word "animation," originating in Japan through the roots of manga. Although the term is used in Japan to refer to animation in general, in English usage the term most popularly refers to material originating from Japan, a subset of animation.

Notice how the definition says ORIGINATING. An american cartoon can be 100% based on japanese culture and/or history, but if it's not made in Japan, it's not anime. (Edit: Take into account that american drawers won't have the same style as japanese drawers).

Some of you people should learn your place, and learn to not call something what it isn't.
