People are butthurt on either side, thats what I said. And yes, it is common knowledge that one will be upset over something when something they like is being criticized.

Why are we quoting each other? We werent debating anything that we already didnt agree on, (Besides the obvious, but even then are quotes werent even talking about that in bulk)

My problem has nothing to do with anyone criticism. My issue is people are trying to redefine things to fit their image. Anime is not a type of animation. When used as a loan word in English it means animation made in Japan. 'Cartoon' is a type of animation. A very general definition would be a sequence of drawn (or rendered to appear to be drawn) images arranged in a sequence so that they appear to move when shown in high speed succession. There is a lot more to it but I'm not teaching a class here. Not all anime is cartoon. Final Fantasy: Advent Children, Vexille ad Gundam Igloo aren't cartoon, they're CGI like Shrek. If you need a technical difference between Japanese and Animerican animation it would be in the voice recording, and this would be a generalization. In Japan, usually all the actors in a scene are in the booth recording together where in America actors are usually recorded separately.

Instead of trying to set yourself apart with a definition, something that makes you look as bad as people who think anime is 'kiddy cartoons,' try learning what animation really is and how it's made. When you get down to the nuts and bolts there isn't much differance and maybe once you understand that you'll enjoy both more.

japanese animation
japanimation
anime

thats a sixty (ish) year overview of the evolution of the word anime up above. reminds me of a friend that bit my nose off for pronouncing manga as maynga instead of mahnga.

in all seriousness its whatever makes you feel better about yourself and your interests. if saying anime is not a cartoon makes you feel better about watching them then who am i to stop you. all i can do is say "you are full of crap."

The difference between anime and cartoons are their artwork. Anime is somewhat more realistic (Im not mentioning the fantasy genre) appearance of the human or other characters while the cartoons is tend to have an exaggerated look to make it look funny. When it comes to the storyline and genre, cartoons makes an exaggerated comedy and childish behavior to make it funny and attractive to kids while the anime is have a vast kind of storyline and genre, it can be funny or serious, it depend on its genre but it is more mature than cartoons when it comes to story and character's behavior.

Well thats my opinion, no offend.

They use Storyboards
They use Layouts
They use Keys
They use Inbetweens

Anime is Cartoons

The only real distinction is the country they are made in....and in all honesty they are both mostly made in Korean and India these days, so even that is out the window.

Referring to anime as a cartoon is like referring to a pickup truck as an automobile; the use of the terminology is not technically incorrect, but it is likely to be associated wrongly in the mind of the other person.

Fullmetal Alchemist and it's brother sequel; Brotherhood still a cartoon, but the word is "anime"

People who stake their egos on the definition one way or another need to get over themselves. That is all.

After browsing some My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic specific imageboards and sites, I realized that some fans of that show are not anime fans. I was a bit surprised, because I'd honestly forgotten about the fandom rivalry between anime fans and cartoon fans.

Some of the best cartoons can appeal to a broad spectrum of audiences. And while manga titles get published in age/audience specific magazines, a good series can appeal to more than one group of people.

I enjoy both western and eastern media of various types. At the same time, I try to remind myself about Sturgeon's Law. Ninety percent of everything is crud. That applies to every media form, category, style, etc.

Finally, worrying about media and style just isn't worth it. A good show is a good show. Relax.
