It shouldn't count as an anime when it's neither japanese-produced or japanese-speaking, even though this one has the same quality of a good anime

I consider Avater as "Western Anime", e.g. anime from from america.

Because I don't want to rate it as low as american cartoons.

It's all cartoons to me.



Also the ratio of bad Japanese cartoons is about even with bad American cartoons, both are 99% crap that probably makes you dumber after viewing.

It's a cartoon.
And anime is cartoon.
Therefore it is anime.

I don't think that there's much of a difference between "anime" and "cartoon." "Anime" just means "animation" to the Japanese public and doesn't exclusively refer to cartoons, but many non-Japanese use "anime" when specifically talking about cartoons of Japanese origin and what's considered as the Japanese style of art for cartoons. Many Japanese don't even use the term to exclusively refer to their own country's productions, though foreigners apparently don't respond in kind. I guess that it comes down to people being snooty and also viewing "anime" as a more quick way of saying "Japanese cartoons" and the like. As a fellow lover of Japanese-style animation and artwork, I like how the terms "anime" and "manga" get me out of having to say phrases like "Japanese comics," "cartoons of Japanese origin," and "Japanese-influenced artwork" whenever I talk about them.

Lol animation is animation there's no other way around it....what a ridiculous question

Also, for all those ignorant people out there that label anime as something that's only japanese are dead wrong lol the word itself "anime" implies animation and animation can be made and developed anywhere, just because it was made in America doesn't mean it's not anime (animation)

Really? Dang. I didn't know. I read something on Wiki that goes like "Bryan's favorite character to draw in Avatar...", but I guess I didn't finish reading it all. I thought it was him that drew them, but I guess I'm mistaken.

If it wasn't anime, Nickelodeon "anime-ed" it by hiring lots of asian folks to help make it anime.

By the way do you folks think Katara look a lot like Korra?

Ummm.... sorry but no. Animation is animation, yes, but the term Anime is used exclusively for Japanese cartoons. Talk about ignorance yourself.

Anime is a form of cartoon, which is a form of animation. So technically cartoons do have actual stories and character development. Now, there are cartoons in places outside Japan that have both of those things. An example is Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra. In France, there is Oban Star Racers and Code Lyoko. As for the difference, the real difference is that anime is a style of animation (cartoon) originating from Japan and it's the abbreviated form of the Japanese word for animation, animēshiyon. To summarize they are the same thing, which is simply animation, and whether it be 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional it doesn't matter. Animation in this sense is defined as the "Process of giving the illusion of movement to drawings, models, or inanimate objects".


Really, you are right, in a sense, but then again you are wrong. Get what I'm saying?
