There are many forms of animation and Anime is one of them! They're FORMS of animation meaning they are animated, but EXECUTED DIFFERENTLY.

It's like saying "Google Chrome is Internet Explorer".
They're both web browsers, but there are differences. You wouldn't call Google Chrome "Internet Explorer" or vice versa.

"Cartoon is a form of animation"
"Anime is a form of animation"
That does not make cartoon an anime or vice versa.

Anime: a Japanese style of motion-picture animation, characterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sexuality.

Cartoon: a motion picture using animation techniques to photograph a sequence of drawings rather than real people or objects.

They're styles and techniques of animating. Therefore they are a form of animation.
Cartoon = Form of Animation
Anime = Form of Animation

Just tell them that its cartoons for different age groups that doesn't always involve children.

Family Guy, The Simpsons, Futurama, and anything else like it must be for children.

It is a cartoon, made for the japanese market. Of course it's a cartoon. It doesn't pay to be a reverse snob.

I read the first post, you will not win any hearts and minds insisting something isn't what it is. Look at North Korea.

Now, if you ware watching subs at most you can argue you are trying to learn Japanese. They may or may not be impressed with that.

As for "fried chicken != baked chicken", you need to reset. Cartoons would be more like "cooked chicken". Now, while I agree that many anime are only half baked, you can't argue "This is not a chicken, it was cooked different so it's no longer chicken. So there".

In the end, they animate stuff. Telebubbies, maybe, not a cartoon. Anime? Absolutely an animated cartoon, made for Japan. It's a subset, 100%. Any other logic is just silly.

I don't (personally) believe anime and cartoons are the same. They do have things in common but most everything in life has several things in common with things almost completely unrelated to them.

1st
Cartoons are typically more Western. They are made in ways that remind the user that what they are watching is not real.

2nd
Most anime's want to draw watchers into the world. They want the audience to feel involved, they want character attachment between the audience and the anime.

You can count Heavy Metal in there, too. Definitely an Anime movie by that context.

I personally believe cartoons and anime are two different executions of what is classified as Animation. Anime and Cartoons have slightly different tropes that are pretty solid throughout the medium.

Honestly, there isn't really any wrong or right answer. People are free to label each as they see fit.

yes but a more mature type of cartoon, I usually tell anyone who thinks it's just like sponge bob or rugrats that anime is not for younger kids. the anime I tend to like (Evangelion, Darker than Black, Future Diary), are one the violent side, so they should be shown to younger kids.

Cartoon is called in America while Anime is in Japan.
it's basically the same.
However, the story line and the art is far much better.
That's why most of people deny it to be clled cartoon (related to children).

Do you know what the word "anime" means? It is the Japanese word for cartoon/animation. The Japanese refer to American cartoons as anime, they don't have some special name for it. It's only people outside Japan that try to make "anime" and "cartoons" different.

You are watching cartoons. Accept that fact and move on.


As long as you do your best in life, why should it matter if you enjoy watching cartoons? I know of couples who are 60+ years old and they watch cartoons.

In the end, people are judgemental and it is up to you whether or not you let that affect your life and your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. If someone can't accept that side of you, maybe you should reconsider your friendship.



I love you for everything you stand for.

It's just cartoons that are made by Japanese. Having big eyes doesn't make it that different.
