Sort of...
it depends on your definition of anime.
I've watched
1.Avatar
2.Teen Titans
However, they aren't really like anime....
they definitely pale in comparison.
Real ANIME is WAY BETTER

I liked Avatar. I was so sure that it was a dub. But then I found out it wasn't. So I guess it's not "anime" as we think of it because it's not from Japan. But it's drawn similar.

I remember the earlier American Anime such as Thundercats with very much Jap anime influence sometime around 1987, wonder anybody still remember that.

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.



FACK WE GOT ANOTHER WAPANESE! TAKE EM TO THE FIRING SQUAD!


what are you talking about? i'm just saying it would be retarded for a native speaker of english to call certain things in japanese just because they know its meaning.

so technically it wouldnt work for us to call our cartoons anime

this is because japan uses english
WE DO NOT
being that its a major language, places like japan have many uses for the english language, its a large tourist spot also.

but for an american or any other being on earth, who doesnt have the heritage; to call something in romaji. is a kind of geeky and weird thing.
anime is a widespread word for japanese animation. BECAUSE WE DO NOT USE ROMAJI

damn i was just stating the obvious, but i guess that doesnt work

i cant stand our cartoons, other than southpark which has finally gotten pretty good. they is no reason to watch them...okay that flapjack show crazy, my point excludes that weird show.

but anyways its easy to understand it your way. because one thing is drawn, and another is drawn. they are the same thing. very hard to say anything to go against such brainless common sense

but just the fact that romaji is english is japan...and anime is jap-english for animation, its just a sort of mainstay as jap-animation. it has nothing to do with my taste. it should be common sense

just get out your crayons put the suffix jap- (to) english + animation = jap- (suffix transfer) animation [anime]

the only part of my original argument that had anything to do with my taste was the fact that our cartoons are completely brainless. but japan jumps boundaries in the only type of media that doesnt cost 10s of millions of dollars

watch the live action sailor moon for christ sake. its beyond terrible. they do not get enough money to make big time live action like we do. so they put their creativity in comic books and cartoons, which in america has been resorted to a childish thing. does this make any sense to anyone? damn

we have good live action, they have good comic books and cartoons, yes and of course they have a broad scope from child to adult. we do not have that to such a scale.

in conclusion, anime is a term for the creative use of animation to create japanese media without the use of millions upon millions of dollars. lol

need i say any friggin more?
