There was one attempt at copying anime several years ago. I don't even remember, I think I was still in high school. It was a science fiction one that they showed on WB. It lasted for a season I think. The name escapes me. It was very serious and involved some young man who was the son of the ruler of this space empire but his mother was human. What I remember is that he had this weird little glove that gave him special powers. It was ok, but just like everyone else who copies, not as good as geniune Japanese made anime.

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.

I am not going to argue with idiots.

Anime isn't a genetic trait, it's a style that originated in Japan, originally anime was just short for the animation, because they're too lazy to say long words. So in Japan, they would technically still call any of what you dub "an american cartoon" as anime.

In Japan, spongebob squarepants would be called an anime.
And yes, elfien lied is a cartoon/animation.

Personally I think Avatar was a great anime.

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

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


I love Teen Titans! Can't wait for a movie adaptation even though it will look different than the tv series...
