I guess its because whenever people say cartoons I picture someone saying Tom and Jerry is the same as Gintama....somehow....its a little off. They are both animated and as such are "cartoons" but....they're different. I think that's what the OP meant.


what about X-MEN? Tell you what I rather watch X-men, MAXX, Spawn, Aeon Flux, Beaves and Buthead, and even Daria. Over Gintama.

Yet their known as Cartoons.

Because Cartoon does not mean for kids..it only means Animated shows.

On another note I probably rather watch Tom and Jerry over Gintama as well. Not a fan of that show.


Its not about whats better, I was just stating that' they're different imo. And I didn't mention anywhere that cartoon refers to shows for kids. There are tonnes of non japanese animated series that are amazing. I'm not refuting that. My tastes in cartoons (i.e non japanese animation) differ from yours i.e I don't quite fancy Beavis and Butthead or Daria. I'm also more a fan of the DC universe. Its all personal taste.
I was also trying to show that I agree with the OP that anime and cartoons(non japanese animation) are the same in the sense that they're both animated but with regards to story telling, art style, humour and plots they're quite distinct which leads to people like me wanting to differentiate them as two separate art forms.
I thought of comparing other examples of non-japanese animation(cartoons) vs japanese animation(anime) but I was tired of typing.

X-men/ -men evolution vs 07 Ghost/Soul Eater/ Naruto
Spawn vs Hellsing
Aeon Fluxx vs Ghost in the Shell
Hamtaro vs Courage the cowardly Dog
JL vs Gatchaman
These are just examples. I'm not saying they are perfect counter parts.


On a more personal note as a Gintama fan...why don't you like the show....its awesome...as in I'm all torn up here that you don't like the show...




I really do not like the shallow humor its based around. Nor its type of action.
Plus the story is a little lame, and its to random with no real Plot device holding it together.
But that just my opinion on Gintama.

Now do not get me wrong I am not hating on just Gintama, you find I feel the same way for about half the Shounen Cartoons out there.

mainly I like a good Drama romance animation, or a Slice of life animation with some Comedy, a good story, and plot.
I do not need kids with super powers in my shows, or slap stick humor. I like my comedy a little more Intelligent, or edgy.



I try to keep an open mind though. Just because an anime features children running around with scythes or super powered cybernetic arms or has a samurai who can fight and defeat foes clearly stronger than he is with merely a wooden sword doesn't mean they lack a good plot, intelligent humour...

Interestingly Gintama isn't really all that slap stick and most of the jokes are actually quite intelligent, referencing japanese culture, western culture and otaku culture, famous people and current events. They do a lot of parodies which might turn people off but they definitely do it in style imo, they don't take away from the original works. And as for intelligent and edgy you mentioned you were a fan of beavis and butthead...yeah not exactly winning any prizes for intelligent humour that one.
Another thing with Gintama is that its lack of an actual plot is well known, even the author references it, its not really something that subtracts from its good points more, it adds to them. I think that makes a bit of a slice of life kind of anime. How the Yorozuya and the other resident of Edo deal with life after the Amanto colonize the earth.
But the thing is that everyone has their own preference & I think thats why I like anime so much, there's something for everyone. Theres drama, romance, comedy, slice of life, action, fantasy, sci-fi! So even if you don't like action and sci-fi...there's something else for you :)








lol. I was a fan of Daria, Who originated from Beavis and Buthead. Also I am a HUGE FAN OF SCI-FI just not Crappy plots based Around main characters being supper powered Kids. "Sense wen does a undereducated 12 year old have the power to kill an army, yet still feels the need to prove him self to the world."

Or like you said a person who beats Aliens with High tech shit with a wooden sword... How rational is that show. Or the fact that Everyone seems to be fucked up in one way or another in that show.


Anyhow I like My humor much like you find in Daria, and I like my action like you find in Berserk.
I don't mind low brow comedy like you find is Desert Punk, as long as the characters are something more than some 12 year old given powers that can wipe out armies, Yet 0 brain power.



I agree, I do dislike overhyped characters like that...but I think it also depends on the anime. And I stopped attempting to rationalize half the anime out there. As long as its sci-fi or fantasy anything can happen. 15 year olds with emotional issues can wipe out armies, lone samurais can cut down gangs of 50+ men, one hero can change the tide of a war with a single mecha..etc. Its not realistic but that makes it awesome.

Not really. Do some homework, you find a lot more detail goes into American animation than you find goes into Japanese Animation.

On another note styles do not = anime... everyone has their own styles. I can place 4 Animation from Japan in front of you, and then place 4 animation from Germany, than 4 from American. An I am willing to bet you get 11 out of 12 of them wrong guessing what nation they came from.

Maby I might make a thread just for that..

It be funny seeing just how confused you little-ones get wen you can not tell what nation a cartoon came from.



I don't think I really care. American cartoons are dumb.

I looked at wiki on how they define anime and this is what I found.


Word usage

In Japan, the term anime does not specify an animation's nation of origin or style; instead, it serves as a blanket term to refer to all forms of animation from around the world.[17][18] English-language dictionaries define anime as "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation" or as "a style of animation developed in Japan".[19] Non-Japanese works that borrow stylization from anime are commonly referred to as "anime-influenced animation" but it is not unusual for a viewer who does not know the country of origin of such material to refer to it as simply "anime". Some works result from co-productions with non-Japanese companies, such as most of the traditionally animated Rankin/Bass works, the Cartoon Network and Production I.G series IGPX or Ōban Star-Racers; different viewers may or may not consider these anime
.

Nuff said.

cartoon is anime. anime is cartoon. Anime was DERIVED from American CARTOONS. They saw works such as mickey mouse and applied the basic facial expressions onto humans rather than animals and gave it a japanese name which was a shortened version of the american name. those of you who think that theyre totally different things are wrong. anime was frickin BORN from cartoons but just be cause were born from our mothers and not exactly the same, were still humans, not some different species entirely. the same can be applied to anime. it was born from cartoons and cartoons are animation. anime is animation. cartoons are not american. theyre the generalization for anything that does not use real actors but rather animated pictures. there are japanese cartoons. theyre called anime. it would be really silly to call them japanese anime because theyre the only ones that call it anime cause thats their word for cartoons. although they are generally different from american cartoons you cannot say that american cartoons are not serious. they do have plots and follow stories. those who think that animes are the only intelligent cartoons are dead wrong. they just dont appreciate their own culture enough to give it a chance. and theyre not all better than american cartoons either. Avatar the last airbender for example is ALOT better than many animes out there and its derived from many places rather than japan. There's a distinction between AMERICAN ANIMATION and JAPANESE ANIMATION. but there is NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CARTOONS AND ANIME. ANIME IS A SUBCATEGORY OF CARTOONS AND CARTOONS REPRESENT ALL ANIMATION ALL OVER THE WORLD RATHER THAN JUST AMERICAN ANIMATION. GET OVER IT. ITS JUST A WORD. IT DOESNT NECESSARILY IMPLY CHILDISHNESS OR INFERIORITY. ITS JUST THE TERM FOR ANIMATION. AND FOR THOSE WHO THINK THAT ALL AMERICAN CARTOONS ARE CHILDISH, THERE ARE ADULT CARTOONS. THEYRE NOT FOR CHILDREN. LIKE FAMILY GUY OR SOUTH PARK. THEYRE MATURE. FOR MATURE VIEWING ONLY. ANIME CAN BE MATURE OR CHILDISH AND SO CAN AMERICAN CARTOONS. THERE FORE ITS NOT AN INSULT TO CALL IT A CARTOON. IT JUST LABELS IT AS ANIMATION AND JUST THAT. why do all my crunchy roll comments turn into essays T_T

Anime is very different from Cartoons. Here are the reasons why:
1) Anime is cute. Cartoons are not
2) Anime has a storyline nearly ALL of the time. Cartoons rarely do.
3) Anime is more expensive to make and license then cartoons
4) In the US alone, the anime industry is worth $4.35 billion/ year
5) Anime is the fastest growing(in terms of popularity) form of International Entertainment in the world today
6) Anime Girls look like girls. Cartoon girls look like guys
7) Anime is created mostly for teens and adults. Cartoons is mostly created for children.
8) Anime has the ability and has suscessfully brought people together. Cartoons, not so much.
When I find out more differences, I will edit this and update it. In closing, Anime is awesome. Cartoons suck on epic levels. Thank you!

The ANN also made a Editorial Report on this: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/editorial/1998-07-09

Wow, 151 pages! Must take part in this epic threads


Cartoons, to me, are mindless sometimes stupid fun animations that are usually aimed at children and have no series story or plot. E.G. Sponge Bob, Tom & Jerry etc.. Sure, there are tons Japanese animations I would call, "cartoons". There are also a ton of Japanese animations I would definitely would not call, "cartoons".

Sure, the Japanese probably class all animations as, "Anime", obviously short for "animation", but to call all animation, "cartoons" would be an insult to all of those creative minds who worked hard to present their, "Animated series" or "Animated Movie" to captivate, motivate, humor etc.. etc..

Do I consider Disney classics (Beauty and the Beast etc..) "cartoons"? No. Definitely not. Family guy cartoon?(although pointless fun with no real story or plot missing) No, sorry.. To get 60% of the humor, a mature mind is required. How about the old Batman series? No.

When I think cartoons, I think goofy humor that only kids can enjoy.

Consider this; You worked hard on an epic animated movie aimed towards all age groups, cultures, etc.. You go out with a few buddies who know your occupation but are quite ignorant about the details. A friend asks, "So are you done working on that cartoon yet? We should hit some clubs this week". Now, you were a major animator in said, "cartoon" and after two and a half years of hard work, you're proud. Do you snap at the, "cartoon" comment and correct said friend. OR Do you let it slide, ignorance is bliss anyways right?

Either way, there's always going to be haters out there. Either jealous they can't express themselves, always putting up a front or just fishing for QQs from the community. Both trolls, both annoying. Please, PLEASE, do NOT feed the trolls! 151 pages~~!

What about computer animation(CG)? do you consider that "cartoons"? Because, well.. it's animated right?...

Obviously this is all opinion, take it for what it's worth..

okay the definition of cartoons off of dictionary.reference.com Cartoon - a sketch or drawing, usually humorous, as in a newspaper or periodical, symbolizing, satirizing, or caricaturing some action, subject, or person of popular interest. Many anime are humorous. They may also focus on a subject or person of popular interest. IF THEY FIT THAT GENERIC DESCRIPTION THAT MAKES THEM A CARTOON. IF THEY DONT THEN THEY ARE JUST ANIMATION. BEING A CARTOON HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ITS FUCKING STORY WHETHER ITS GOOD OR BAD. I DONT KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE MANY OF YOU BRAIN DEAD RETARDS TO GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS. ITS JUST A PRIDE THING. ALMOST ALL AMERICAN ANIMATION IS CARTOONS. MANY ANIME ARE ALSO CARTOONS. THERE ARE JUST MORE MORE KNOWN ANIME THAT ARE NOT HUMOROUS WHICH FREES THOSE PARTICULAR ONES FROM THE TITLE OF CARTOONS BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE HORROR ANIME THAT DO NOT FOCUS ON COMEDY WHICH MAKES THEM JUST ANIMATION RATHER THAN A CARTOON. THATS IT. TO BE A CARTOON IT MUST BE HUMOROUS AND FOCUS ON A PARTICULAR SUBJECT OR CHARACTER. MOST ANIME FIT THAT DESCRIPTION. IF THEY HAVE A FUCKING MAIN CHARACTER AND THEY HAVE A JOKE OR DRAMATIC COMICAL IRONY THAT MAKES THEM A CARTOON. GET THE FUCK OVER IT. THIS INCLUDES WORKS SUCH AS NARUTO BLEACH DBZ AND ALMOST ALL MAINSTREAM ANIME AND ECCHI AND MOST SLICE OF LIFE ANIMES WILL HAVE SOME KIND OF A HUMOROUS OUTPUT ON DAY TO DAY ADVENTURES. THERE ARE A TON OF ANIMES THAT DO NOT HAVE A REAL STORY OR EVEN A BASIC ONE SUCH AS THE MELANCHOLY OF HARUHI SUZUMIYA , BAKA TO TEST NO SHOUKANJUU, LUCKY STAR, MINAMI-KE, AND MANY AND MOST SLICE OF LIFE ANIMES ARE AIMLESS AND JUST FOLLOW THE DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS LIVES. AND THERE ARE STORIES FOR MANY AMERICAN CARTOONS AND ANIMATION THAT MOST OF YOU ARE JUST TOO LAZY TO LOOK FOR OR OVERLOOK. SO THOSE OF YOU WHO SAY THAT THE GENERAL AMOUNT OF AMERICAN CARTOONS DO NOT HAVE STORY LINES ARE JUST IGNORANT FOOLS. ALTHOUGH A LARGE AMOUNT OF THEM DO NOT HAVE STORY LINES SUCH AS FAMILY GUY THE SIMPSON KING OF THE HILL...ETC THERE ARE MANY THAT DO. AS I SAID IN AN EARLIER COMMENT, THE FIRST PERSON TO CREATE AN ANIME USED THE OVERLY EXPRESSIVE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS FROM CARTOONS SUCH AS MICKEY MOUSE AND APPLIED THEM TO HUMAN CHARACTERS. ALSO FOR THOSE WHO THINK THAT THE ANIMATION IS MUCH BETTER THAN AMERICANS JUST WATCH A MOVIE LIKE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST OR CINDERELLA OR ALL THESE TYPES OF AMERICAN CARTOONS THAT HAVE FLAWLESS BEAUTIFUL ANIMATION. THEY HAVE AN EXTREMELY SOLID STORY AND THEYRE CONSIDERED MASTERPIECES DESPITE THEIR AGE. COMPARED TO THESE HOWEVER, ANIME FOCUSES TOO MUCH ON THE DETAILS OF THE CHARACTERS AND BACKGROUNDS WHICH LEADS TO POORER ANIMATION (FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT KNOW ANIMATION IS THE ACTUAL MOVEMENT FROM FRAME TO FRAME NOT THE ARTWORK ITSELF) AND MANY OF THE SCENES IN ANIME ARE STILL AS IN THEY DONT MOVE THE MAIN AREA OF THE PICTURE JUST THE MOUTH OR THE THE LIMBS. AS FOR THE MOUTH, THEY DONT EVEN BOTHER TO SYNC THE SHAPES THE MOUTHS MAKE WITH THE WORDS THE CHARACTERS ARE SAYING. THATS PRETTY LAZY IF IM NOT MISTAKEN. WHILE EVEN THE MOST SIMPLE CARTOONS IN AMERICAN ACCOMPLISHED PROPER SPEECH MOUTH MOVEMENT SYNCHRONIZATION A LONG TIME AGO. THEY ALSO GET VERY LAZY ON THE LIMBS WHEN MOVING FAST SO THAT LAZY ANIMATION IS LABELED AS "SPEED". THEY JUST USE TWO TRACKS OF SKIN COLORED LINES THAT SIMULATE FAST MOTION WHILE THE MAIN BODY AND PICTURE GENERALLY REMAINS STILL WHILE ONLY MAKE SIMPLE MOVEMENTS. ALTHOUGH AMERICAN CARTOONS DO THAT TOO, ITS STILL A LOSS IN TERMS OF SUPERIORITY OVER AMERICAN ANIMATION. ANIME IS STORY FOCUSED! NOT FOCUSED ON ANIMATION. IT IS NOT ANY BETTER THAN AMERICAN ANIMATION. THERE ARE AMERICAN CARTOONS AIMED AT ADULTS AS WELL AS CHILDREN AND THE SAME APPLIES TO ANIME. ANYONE WHO STILL THINKS THAT AMERICANS CARTOONS ARE PURPOSELESS AND THAT ANIME PERFECT IS RETARDED AND CAN GO SHOVE A RUSTY NAIL UP THEIR ASS BECAUSE YOUD BE TOO STUPID TO NOTICE THAT YOUR DYING OF TETANUS ANYWAYS.

Anime is short for Animation, its their word for all animated films, not just from japan, they call all cartoons/animation anime.


Anime is to cartoon / cake is to ke-ki!
Anime is to cartoon / dog is to inu!
Anime is to cartoon / ogre is to oni!
Anime is to cartoon / Elf or sprite is to yousei



I have been a fan of animated shows from Japan for 27 years. I am not going to lie to you about something I love.
But the fact is Cartoon is not a bad word, morons that think it is need to pull their heads out of their asses.


One last time anime does not stand for a style, anime has no style people do. Anime is just a word that stands for all cartoons or animation.

Yes America does spend a lot more time on the details such as human like emotions and lip sinking.
Wile Japan prefers to go with more abstract devices to show emotion.

I agree with you a lot.. But then you really made me proud wen you pointed out that anime is about frame to frame not the animation. That is 100% true. An is why anime can not stand for just Japanese animation.
But must stand for all animation for the definition is giving pictures life. " Or animated drawings. "

Spoiler for wall-o-text

Wow dude, if you're that irate about it why are you here? Obviously anything animated with any type of humor is considered cartoon, is basically what you said. So, Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children is obviously a cartoon right? There's a few obvious puns and one liners and it is -animated-. So it MUST be a cartoon right??

Oh, and btw, you contradict your own post like a tool, (Cartoon - a sketch or drawing, usually humorous, as in a newspaper or periodical, symbolizing, satirizing, or caricaturing some action, subject, or person of popular interest. | FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT KNOW ANIMATION IS THE ACTUAL MOVEMENT FROM FRAME TO FRAME NOT THE ARTWORK ITSELF)

So wait, if a cartoon is just a sketch or drawing, how can it be an animation? Can a cartoon be animated? Sure. Well obviously. But going by your definition, a cartoon is a still drawn picture, usually depicting some type of humor. NOT http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/animation

So again, going by your definition and logic, Cartoons do NOT = Animation. BUT Cartoons CAN be Animated.

Are you with me here?
