i think the issue here is whether ANIME was coined because of Japanese animation.
its it quite obvious that ANIME is the shortcut for animation, no argument here.
but the question whether if you can use the same term for other animations such as ..Disney's or with Marvel is a different.
i think you missed the point buddies.
therefore, i think anime is for japanese animation.

if you want to define it, then it would suite well that this a synonym for japanese anime.

these are but my opinions.

Only ones who think so are idiotic ignorant "purist" hardcore fuckers who disgrace the name of anime.
The term "anime" originated from Japan but that doesnt mean that Japanese style animation from elsewhere isnt considered "anime"
All in all,only idiots wouldnt get this. "Anime" is just a term the japanese established for their animation,thats just how they call it! nothing more.

you sounded so convinced? any sources there? or just a make belief observation of yours.
i dont think ANIME was coined in japan.
it evolved at different places at parallel time with one idea in mind ----> the Japanese style of animation.

look it up.

Well,if thats your opinion..
But I do agree with you,its not like your statement about anime is wrong.
My words probably need some proper phrasing.
So,where did you learn about that?

Most people regard anime as animation coming ONLY from Japan, but Japanese regard all kinds of animation as anime, wherever it comes from.

Like I said anime plots are more complicated.. Bo bo is the perfect example. Even if it is stupid. A lot more effort was put into it, unlike the US who just throw in a lot of silly gags, but the plot, and story-line are weak.. So we end up just watching Tom and Jerry "Bonk" each other over the head with frying pans for half and hour. Realistic and Unrealistic isn't as important as a good story-line. Every cartoon and anime ever made is unrealistic to be honest... But, if i have to choose which one was more realistic based on how my more thought was put into it, it'd have to be anime. I mean the characters actually change as the story goes on. US cartoons aren't like that ...
