Anime means Japanese Animation, so all animated shows imported from Japan is Anime

Anime just means that they originate from Japan.

Yeah I guess you could say that "all anime are cartoons," since anime and cartoons are basically the same, the only big differences are that cartoons are American, and anime are Japanese, and that cartoons are mainly aimed for children, but anime can be for all ages, and for all genres.

I think of anime and cartoons as sub-categories of animation in general. They are very similar, but they do have differences.

So Pokemon would be an anime, not a cartoon since it was originally from Japan.


i think the best way to define anime from cartoons by the way they draw

anime


Cartoon

That too, I thought I mentioned that but I guess I didn't Sometimes its really amazing how pretty/awesome the artwork is too.. If I hadn't been watching anime for so long, I might be really shocked the first time I did. I wonder how people take it when they first see anime art after being exposed to cartoons for so long when they start watching in their 'teens or beyond...

Pokemon is anime if you're referring to anime as in Japanese animation, which is the most common use of the word at the present time. As long as it is made in Japan the character design doesn't matter it is still considered anime. Anime would be considered a sub genre of cartoons since it usually applies to cartoons only made in Japan. Pokemon is a cartoon, but if you want to address it more specifically you would call it anime. Also, this thread is full of AIDs.

Anime is so much more than ‘just a cartoon.

Cartoons focus on good vs. bad blah blah
Animes are much deeper coz it has more themes other than that..

An anime fan can tell easily if it's anime or not!



That's putting a personal definition on cartoon that isn't necessarily found in Webster's or the Oxford concise.
which was kinda my point in earlier posts.

If I were being a jerk I'd chant 'cartoon cartoon cartoon" just to see if I could get a classic head vein throbbing on your forehead.

why are hardcore anime fans SOOO insistant that this 'greatest art evah" is NOT a cartoon. what's so scary/irritating about the word 'cartoon'? It's a good honest english word.

pokemon is a japanese animation, so obviously, it is an anime. the reason why it appears to be like a cartoon is because a lot of us watch the english-dubbed version on tv.
