I agree in most part to the OP and the rest that says anime is same a cartoon, but theirs 1 part that you just cant disregard, and thats the style of drawing. I started watching cartoons since i was very liitle cuz my mom likes watching cartoon ( tom and jerry, micky mouse, bugs bunny, pinochio, little mermaid , beauty and the beast, cow and chicken, snoopy etc cant even remember some of the old cartoon ive seen) and im still watching some cartoons till now and you can definitely see that theirs a difference in drawing style even compared to the older animes ive seen ( voltes five, mazinger z , astro boy, bt x etc) thats y u just cant say american animation is same as japanese animation when it comes to drawing style.

their are some japanese animation that actually looks like an american animation like pokemon and digimon ( i just recognized this 2 years ago) and kimba the white lion ( 1 of my fav show when i was a kid )

Call it anime or cartoon makes no difference aslong as you enjoy it but my point is theirs a difference in drawing style in japanese animation ( if you wish to call it anime) and american animation ( cartoon, if thats what you call it )

truth is ive always just liked anime for the artwork and back in the day, its realism. anime seems a little more geared towards children recently but still, i love it all, and can even enjoy one that is blatantly geared for kids from time to time. alot of 80's animes had no chibi, big eyed superdeformed scenes at all.

well, indeed in basic definition anime just means animation in jap, but it has become a term people use to categorize and classify what they are familiar in, ask 10 people what does anime mean to them 9.5 people will give you the standard answer of big-ass eyed characters. it has become a genre, like asking how sci-fi should a show be b4 its called sci-fi, or why people prefer sci-fi to drama, storywise and etc etc.

truth is that there IS a distinction that no one can tell for sure between anime and cartoon which is y people are eager to do the separation to avoid confusion.

EDIT: and yes not all anime have to fulfill the conditions you stated to be considered anime, take the animated MTV of Linken Park's Breaking the Habit for example, its classified under anime rather than cartoon.

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.


well really anime and cartoon not the same yes they both drawings but look at a cartoon most time there pointless and just crap and some just of the comedy and really they just do the same thing every episode anime not pointless and its not crap well some anime are

It is like an ethnic race, anime and cartoon being under the category of animation, same as japanese and chinese being under the category of humans, they are essentially the same, it is the little differences that makes them different.

you don't go around saying JAPANESE ARE CHINESE, same goes for saying anime are cartoons
