For American terminology (ie when conveying what I do as a pass time) I use the term anime. Even though I know that in Japanese Language anime is just short for animation and is thus used for the classification of any animated entertainment. I seem to like the Japanese animation better that american; I think it is because the american voices they use for cartoons tend to be irritating (I can not watch anime dubbed. Even if it is a good story the voices are just horrible).

Meh, it just got on my nerves people thought Anime had to be a certain way, and how it IS done a certain way. I'm just making a thread to inform people it's really not, it's not that big of a deal, but I think I should just inform the kids ya know?


i think when people say it has to be made a "certain way" they are referring to a certain type of anime - mainly only japanese anime. So i guess an example would be like...say someone was hungry and said "ahh im dying of hunger..." and their friend said "here have a tomato", and then the first guy answers "ewww im talking about 'real' food" (implying that tomatoes are not real food, when in fact they are, but the statement is made in order to emphasize that person's strong preference for non-tomato foods so much so that they will reject anything with tomatoes in it...lol) So basically im saying that technically ur right, but the people who said that anime had to be a "certain way" did so to stress their preference for a certain type of anime. Its like when u use a hyperbole...like "im gonna die". ur not really gonna die, but u say so to emphasize ur point...umm...im repeating myself arent i...lol

PS: yea...i used tomatoes as an example cause i hate tomatoes...lol hope it wasnt too confusing

PPS: err...okay im thinking maybe i didnt state my main point clearly so just incase ill say it here lol: u r right, anime doenst have to be done a certain way, but i dont think its neccessary to inform people of that since they only say that anime has to be that "certain way" to emphasize their personal preference. its not as if they are ignorant.

PPPS: i tend to refer to cartoons made in Japan as "anime" and cartoons made in U.S. simply as "cartoons" myself in order to differentiate between the 2, since they are so different. obviously i prefer one over the other since im on cr though

PPPPS: wow a lot of PS's lol

I agree too--Anime knows no bounds. However, the real question should be: "what's "good" anime?"

anime is anime you cant say other stuff is it yea hentai just form of anime and you do get ones what dont have most of the stuff in it but still we all know that anime is anime and even if some one made a film just like anime but you took all those little bits out of it it still wont be anime it may look like it but its not. even if other stuff got bit of anime dont mean they anime. so dont try compare that everything is like anime like American films ect are made for joke and stuff but anime have secret meaning they also make you think so anime is anime and nothing can say that it just like everything else. everything is unique just like your finger print so is every different anime and everything else in this world even twins are unique may look same they have different finger print and different feelings and i am really getting of the point so i will stop here

I usually use the term anime for Japanese cartoons. But I recognize that it means cartoons as a whole. People just can't admit that they like watching cartoons so they call it anime instead, even though it can be applied to all animated drawings.

lol what? Anime means cartoon. The thread is not a comparison, it's just pointing out that people sound dumb when they say, omgomgomg anime is not a cartoon.
