Teen Titans is practically American anime. Just look at the theme song.

Technically none exist yet according to purists. However Satoshi Kon is building an animation studio in LA so anything that came out of there would count by their limited definitions.

If you aren't listening to purists then there's Teen Titans, Avatar, and several other animations with heavy anime influence.

Not another one. Anime is just a cartoon. The only difference is that (most) people use the term "anime" to refer to cartoons from Japan. I don't get why people don't understand this. People in Japan refer to American cartoons as "anime". =/ So when comes down to it all anime are cartoons and all cartoons are anime, it's just what term choose to use. What pisses me off is the tards on this site who are "Omg aNiMe Iz So gReAt, iT's OnLy AnImE iF iT cOmE's FrOm JaPaN. aNiMe HaS sUcH gReAt StOrIEs aNd CaRtOoNs SuCk!!! ZOMG!!! LOLOLOL!!! [/endrant]
So to answer your question, yes, "american anime" has existed since the early 1900's.

well compare a 'cartoon' and an 'anime'. a 'cartoon' has no depth, is just for the act of animation. 'anime' just happens to take 'animation' and create a media.
if you find these two similar (american anime, and japanese cartoons) than you just happen to be a little braindead.

being that anime means animation in well...romaji...which is japanese. so for us to say anime with a native tongue...it means not much more than jap animation.

if your calling spongebob anime than...you are quite a weird kid.

if your calling elfen lied a cartoon than...you are also quite a weird kid.

americans (or anyone else in the world) normally dont speak japanese. therefore anime means jap. animation.

i hope i dumbed it down enough for you.

anyways. avatar is pretty close to the shonen type story...but...that show is really boring and has a kind of odd style.

There is no such thing. American animation is called "cartoon" not anime.
