You otaku just want to distance yourselves from the "cartoons are for kids" stereotype. Japan's studios make their baby shows just like we do. Same with all the adult stuff--we've also got that covered.

*sigh* Look some believe anime are cartoons and others don't. Let's just leave at that. This thread reminds of one in MySpace where ppl argued whether music is noise or not.

I'm from a time when we had anime but we had never heard of anime (battle of the planets, star blazers, etc).

We didn't even know they were from Japan, but we sure knew they were cartoons.

Saying Anime is not a form of cartoon is like saying Manga is not a form of comic. The difference people see is not whether it's a cartoon or not one. The difference people see is western culture and art style (cartoons) and the eastern culture and style (anime.) But in reality, it's the same concept.

If you get angry when people call an anime a cartoon, you should probably stop caring so much what other people think and just enjoy it for what it is. Regardless of what genre people perceive it as.

This topic it rather funny, I cant believe its up to 170 different pages, over such a small topic.

Anime=Cartoons Simple

90s American cartoons > Present American Cartoons

So over all yes Anime is cartoons, but they are 100% better then the American cartoons of the present day.

Well this is just my opion everyone has there own and well some are just to simple minded and stuck in there stubborn ways to know the different.

On a future note, ill still be the 80 year old guy watching cartoons both American and Japanese.

(and thus my first forum post lol)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "Anime" is just a nick name someone made up to shorten the term "japanese animation" or whatever. It really is just cartoons. I mean, a lot of characters from 'anime' make goofy faces and expressions that a cartoon would make.

Yes, I get infuriated when i hear that, people always say anime are japanase cartoons, but thats wrong, anime=japanase "animation", cartoon= american "animation", basically they are both animation but they are 2 completely different things.

I have never thought cartoons are just for kids, just like you said there are anime for kids too, and there are cartoons like SouthPark and Family guy (hate those shows more than i hate Tiffa, and thats a lot of hate) that are defintiely not for kids,, is just that cartoons are.....boring

You mean last LOL. Well, I can't argue that they are totally different styles of animation, but not everyone wants to see it that way. It's like there are ppl that lump rock and country music together for use of the same instrumentals (yeah, I've met ppl like that).

Instead of that, use: cartoons = simple form of entertainment and, all adult cartoons = South Park

Anime = more diverse form of entertainment
