Hello to my thread --> "Anime the facts and nothing but the facts...!"



Today I like to talk about "Anime"

Anime is short for the Japanese word Animeeshun.

Animeeshun Is the Japanese word for Animation... At that the Japanese Call all animated cartoons Anime No matter where they come from.

So just so you know in there eyes Bugs Bunny is anime, Max, the Tick, Lady Death, spongbob, and the X-men.
There all known to the Japanese as anime.

In fact as most of the older anime fans that has been into anime more than 10 years can tell you, that anime is only saying its a animated show. Wen us older animeeshun fans wanna only talk about Japanese anime, we call it Japanimation, or J-anime. To-days fans ..aka.. the newer fans seem to lack this common sense.

another fact about anime....! Unless the person is swearing in english or another Language, there is no swearing in anime! That is just Fan Subbers Jazzing up a anime.

(little known fact Japan has no swear words.) Yes Japan does have rude remarks and such but no swear words trust me I lived in Japan for 8 years and My wife is Japanese I met her there.


'the Anime style? :
1. First off anime stands for Animation so No it does not have a style.
2. The style used in a lot of todays J-anime or Japanimation, was really created In America in the past, Japan loved that style so they used it for there Manga soon after it followed into there animated films.


I have been a J-anime fan for 21 maby 22 years. So I feel as an elder heer it is my job to pass on my knowledge to the next generation.

'Now friends feel free to talk about any of what I had to post... Also feel free to add in othe little known facts...' I be happy to add any notes on the meny things I missed as we go along.'

The red and blue contradicts each other as much as the colors do. How can anime not have a style IF number 2 implies that there is indeed a style, a style used in America.

I'm giving you time to explain.

No it does not wile anime does not have a style being its just animation.
there are styles that are used in anime. one of the main styles used "IN" anime the Big eye style emotions shown by using symbols was created in America, later taken and used in Japan.

So no its not contradicting, Anime is not a style but there is different styles used in Anime understand.

Thank you for clarifying. It looks like I've been mislead by the grammatical error that you made but now I'm fine.

With regards, I'm not the type to test those facts whether they are really facts since I don't have the experience to do so. All of my knowledge are mediated and not mediated.

With that said, I still think that character designs of anime are much more superior than American cartoons. But... i think that Spongebob the Movie beats K-ON all-wise. A shame for an anime that came from a very popular company with a good reputation for good arts. As such moe-style just feels boring nowadays. No one can really top the moe-style that Azumanga Daioh generated.

well, even though your are technically correct in one sense, you are also wrong in another sense. English is an evolving language, like most other languages. for one example, "boot" used to mean "trunk", but in modern day society nobody would ever insist on still using this terminology. in the same way, the word "anime" has come, through society, to refer soley to japanese animation.

I think what the OP is saying regarding the term "anime" is that in Japan they refer to all animation (regardless of origin) as anime. In the English language we have adopted the term to solely refer to Japanese animation. However, for the Japanese themselves the term encompasses all animation and isn't limited to Japan.

'Only to the newer fans.. the rest of us still call it Japanimation or J-anime, and the Japanese still call all cartoon anime. So only people who think anime is Japanese cartoons is the people who been into anime less than 10 years or so. So its more just a miss understanding, than the word changing over time. I blame us older fans for not pointing out the mistake earler.

Adapted sence wen? the truth is even the Americans up till a few years ago called Japanese cartoons Japanimation.

I don't coun't a group of missinformed young people a country adopted the term for something else.
'Us old fans still are around.'

Example...: If a group of youngester started calling Ice creem Dog shit.. (just that group of new Ice cream loving fools) Dose that mean Dog shit is now the new word for Ice creem? Or is it more like hip new slang word for the kiddies.

You can call any cartoon Anime.. But in the same time you are American so you not be wrong to call all animated shows no matter where there from cartoons. 'If the cartoon is from Japan the propper name for it is Japanimation.


'So in end calling cartoons anime your not wrong.

'Calling a Japanese or American or German cartoon a cartoon your not wrong.

'But if your Talking about only the Japanese cartoons and nothing else the right wording would be Japanimation. Or J-anime for short. (but thats if your only talking about Japanese cartoons and nothing else.

Believe it or not I was the Person who created the word Narutard... That is my word that became bigger.

I can even tell you how, why, and where I came up with that Title for some people.

Pwned I never used that word.. And I am a big MMORPG FAN been playing them for about 12 years.
