Well, I do get kind of annoyed, not because they call them 'cartoons', but they assume all anime is either hentai(like Love Hina, which is not a bad anime by the way), magical girl (like sailor moon), or just plain kid shonen (pokemon, yu gi oh)
I mean.. .not all anime is like that :]
Basically, just saying... I dislike stereotypists (though I might be one myself...)


Yeah i got tired of always explaining that anime isn't all hentai so i rarely if ever mention i'm into it around non-fans anymore. It was especially bad when I back in the military, since most of them had only encountered hentai. It frustrates me when someone decides to define an entire medium by a small sampling they received, and refuses to even listen to anything else regarding the matter.

but... I wouldn't really call Love Hina "hentai," I wouldn't even call it ecchi (a milder form of hentai) since it's pretty tame though it does have a good portion of fanservice. Hentai is pretty graphicly explicit stuff, and Ecchi while not explicit does have nudity, neither of which Love Hina have.

So true. .. LOL like bible black! LOL

Anyway, I love cartoons but I like to differentiate from which kind and from where. . .Most cartoons that come from japan the U.S. label it as anime not cartoon. . .so many fanatics like to think they are different. . .But like I said It depends on how you like it. . .I love anime especially what i se here LOL I know that about 55 percent is pure randomness but I am talking about all the others that are awesome. . .now that is anime. .. LOL

Well, "hentai" is Japanese for "pervert" or "perversion".

yeah my friends think anime is either smut or kiddy stuff, not that I don't watch kiddy american and japanese cartoons lol they can be interesting but ya...and i think the smutty part is my fault b/c I'm always reading yaoi...but yaoi here shouldn't even be called yaoi its more like shounen ai to me (;_;)

thats another term that gets confused in america I've seen so many shounen ai books being called Yaoi im like, yaoi is the opposite of yuri and hentai...if there is only one kiss in the book that is not yaoi... , I've wasted many brain cells getting upset over that lol, but its false advertisement....

oh and for the morons who think just b/c u change a words meaning that the change is universal all of a sudden, don't get mad at someone else for having more knowledge about soemthing thats suppose to be your hobby...wannabe know it alls...so annoying "waaah anime isn't a cartoon..." bruce willis said it best in "kid" somebody call the waahbulance

lol azrael needs a chill pill and has no right to call anyone a moron or "japanophile" without knowing them in real life. that is the same as telling someone to do their mom while playing an internet game, for all that person knows, the other ones mom could be dead.

point: i am not a moron or a word that is not in the dictionary (japanophile, pfft)


oh yeah and it makes you seem like a nerd if you say that much (it's entertainment, get over it, and get some sunshine)

1. Hentai is not porn

2. pam-chan: what do you mean anime are close to what people look like not the 4 fingered cartoons? So on the cartoon Ben 10, they all have 4 fingers? On the cartoon X-Men, they don't look like real people? Please excuse some of the mutants who don't have realistic features. Also what about Don Patch? I guess some people are walking around looking like an orange sun with spikes? Go back to 1st grade.

3. If you never liked cartoons, how'd you find out about anime?

Oh noes! I look like a nerd discussing anime... on anime forum... on a site that provides a large amount of streaming anime...

Thats like calling someone an alcoholic at an AA meeting. You're pretty much all in the same boat. And if you DON'T think you're a nerd when you watch anime online and post on related forums, you need to seriously reevaluate your sense of identity.

It should be pretty obvious I'm a "nerd" and have never denied being such. In fact, I take pride in it (nor does that mean I never go out - I'd put money I've done and seen more than the vast majority of the users here)

Ignorance flaunted in an authoritative manner regardless of the subject matter disgusts me.

"Japanophile" is a fanculture slang term (just like "weeaboo" or "wapanese"). Some posts reak of the user being a japanophile. Any obscene adoration of japanese culture from someone who has only dealt with it to a very limited extent is an indication of being a japanophile, and this thread has several posts like that (OMG anime is sooo not cartoons cuz anime is awesome and cartoonz aren't1!!1).

It means that, but to an a very extreme degree. There is nothing wrong with enjoying japanese traditional culture or pop culture, but a japanophile can get pretty crazy about it. Learning japanese is pretty hardcore (if you're just learning it because of anime), but not enough to consider one a japanophile. Most japanophiles always say they're learning japanese, but I've yet to meet one who ever actually got very far with it since they tend to be pretty immature folks.

They obsess over anything japanese (or japanese related) regardless of whether it is actually any good or not. In their mind, it being japanese means it is isntantly superior to anything else in the world. Movies, music, food, fashion, cars, anything - which really really isn't the case. There is a lot of crappy anime out there, but japanophiles are notorious for proclaiming their love for anything that is anime, usually before even seeing the anime in question (or anything japanese related for that matter). They're a dying breed, but the american anime fanculture was filthy with them several years.

haiz....this topic..my parents still say anime=cartoon...-_-"...
so this is my idea of cartoon and anime...if it's wrong, plse correct me...thanks
cartoon, i think is more like for kids , cos like no violence, everything like peace here peace there, no fighting and like is educational.
animes, i think is like for teenagers and adults.( and somehow i find some animes like got hidden meaning...like teaching something)....animes may include violence, romance and so on.we don't see cartoons have romance, right?
