oh god not this pandora's box again...

ok kid, before this get locked here it is really simple.

"anime" is just the japanese word form animation. in japan, they call stuff like disney anime too.

however, here in america (or the west in general), anime has come to mean any cartoon that comes from japan. it actually has to come from japan to be anime - not korea, not america, not drawn like anime, it actually has to be japanese.

there is no such thing as "american anime" unless you're actually speaking to a japanese person.

now someone lock this.

A thread about Anime not being cartoons exists. I go look for the link...

The main difference is in the means each animation is prepared. One of the defining features of Anime is their use of Limited Animation. Western animation also uses this technique, but the Japanese have refined it to a very advanced level. :)

EDIT:
Anime is DIFFERENT from Cartoons

Oh, and I agree with azrael. In the end, there is no real difference, since these are animation styles. Anime is a shortened form of "animation", and is used by the japanese to refer to their form of animation. Anime styles, though, are reminiscent of early comic animation styles of the west, so its really cultural flavors that give rise to the noticeable styles of each animation style. :)

Teehee, thanks slowdanse.
