it has the same features such as big eyes, and fine lines.
It doesn't matter who draws it.

That's like saying:
sushi isn't sushi if a non-Japanese makes it.


you are right, but..... that sushi is just a copy of the original. And the original comes from Japan. So you cant say that is 100% sushi.
And that goes with the anime. What is done outside Japan are just imitations. Everything is btw. Simple as that. And if you're envious because Japanese animation is better in so much aspects, than everything else from your country, than ..... you can be. An anime has nothing to do with the word Animation or Anime. It has with the drawing style!! And the style is very different from any other in this world. Because its 100% Japanese.

Oh yes It can there are pretty good imitators of a sushi here in America.

You're right but I still disagree on your opinion,but that different country has different style I totally agree.



Because its 100% Japanese. <_<

What do you mean 100% Japanese? what you say about countries having different style is correct,but Japanese 100% I disagree Japan's economic(2009) dropped many people are losing their jobs, and many people believe that Japan is the best place to lived that it's really expensive.


No offense, but what this have to do with the anime made there?

Anime is a shortcut for animation

Definition:

Animation is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. It is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision, and can be created and demonstrated in a number of ways. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although several other forms of presenting animation also exist.

<--- this one is an example of animation

Any animation or art will do
the voice for animation in japanese is important(to me if i not wrong)
the voice for animation in other language feel so fake to me mostly(for example eng dub for naruto which i hate so much sometime)
The voice for animation is very important(mostly i like is japanese voice)(favourite english voice mostly come from final fantasy 7,kingdom heart and anything from square enix XD)
That is my reason of why anime have to be made from Japan to be an Anime

Anime is one genre of animated cartoon. It is basically animation from Japan.

Other genres that fall under that (animated cartoon) category are:
Funny animals >> The backbone of Disney's series of cartoons.
Zany humor >> Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck of Warner Brothers, etc. It usually involves surreal acts such as characters being crushed by massive boulders or going over the edge of a cliff but floating in mid air for a few seconds.
Sophistication >> The animations themselves were mostly for kids, and based on traditional fairy tales.
Limited animation >> In the 1950s, UPA and other studios refined the art aspects of animation, by using extremely limited animation as a means of expression.
Modernism >> The design of the characters became more angular, while the quality of the character animation declined.
Animated music videos and bands >> Popular with the advent of MTV and similar music channels, music videos often contain animation, sometimes rotoscoped (see: Take on Me), i.e., based on live action performers.
Computer Animation >> Some cartoons implemented CGI and a few were done entirely in computer animation. Beast Wars and Reboot were done entirely in CGI whereas Silver Surfer only partially implemented CGI.

technically anime, is Japanese style animation but I don't really differentiate between Japan made animes and non-Japan animes. Avatar the Last Airbender was made by American and I still consider it to be an anime...

This, I can almost completely agree with.

Well, I consider anime to be the Japanese term for animation. The word "anime" has just been used for Japanese animation, that's all.

Also, just because an American or a group of Americans create a TV show or animation similar to a Japanese show, doesn't make it an imitation.

God damn you guys, just because you see something made in one country and it originated from another country doesn't make it an imiation. It's like saying Captain Crunch cereal made in Mars is imitating Captain Crunch cereal made in Earth.

in my opinion anime doesnt have to be japanese but to make it clear japan has the best anime, anyways i dont agree when u say cartoons are the same as anime cause they arent, cause the anime has a basic plot and a storyline and most cartoons doesnt fallow one! so common ppl the japanese anime is the best!

I do not believe Anime needs to come from japan only, there are korean based anime as well.
There IS a HUGE difference between cartoons and anime.
All anime are cartoons, but not all cartoons are anime.

It would be very expensive to make every cel in Japan and consider the fact that the anime studios has a very limited budget and thus, to limit the expense to make an anime, they need some cheap labor force like Philippines, Korea, etc. to reduce their overhead cost.
