Yeah Boondocks is a great example of how American Animation should be done.


Shh. I'm busy shouting incantations at a holy alter in the hopes that Warner Bros. Animation studio will stop making hit-or-miss DC shows and once again rise to the popularity that it once had up to the late 90s...

Uh, from what I know about what exactly the anime tag is supposed to be about, no. It has to be created in Japan by Japanese people. Pretty much, anything that is completely done in America can't have that tag applied, but it is possible for Americans to contribute to the anime creation process much like with all of the Marvel stuff and other things.

For better or worse, "anime", as applied to non-Japanese productions, will probably make enough sense to enough people that there simply won't be enough demand for another term, unless some new word pops up that people latch on to.

I think non-Japanese-produced-but-anime-styled-animation is likely to become more popular. With this, a lot of people will be like "why can't I call this stuff that looks like anime anime?" Thus we have the age-old battle over what a word should mean, a battle often resolved by the most convenient solution...

So unless some nifty new term comes around, I say we might as well ditch the cultural part of the anime definition and just focus on the visual/artistic parts. I'm bet there will still be plenty of room for debate. One last thing: for RWBY, it's fairer to compare it to old anime (in terms of visual quality), because new anime isn't done from scratch: the established studios can rely on previous routines (blinking, running, boob physics, etc) and then spend time on refinements such as lighting effects.

I guess my point is that RWBY needs to spend time on boob physics. Wait, no. It's that anime should just be defined visually/artistically.

Why does it have to be Americans? What about, say, the French or the Middle East? Maybe present a broader topic:

Can any country outside Japan create anime?

Technically, the answer is yes. End of story.

bottom line is yes
its just how they go about it in terms of story line as well as art style that is going to be tricky part
in my opinion that will determine if it will be a hit or a miss

Americans can make anime. The Boondocks or the last airbender/legend of korra are pretty good examples. RYBY on the other hand...

The Boondocks and The Last Airbender aren't anime though, they are cartoons. Rwby is a piece a shit by all standards.

IMO The Boondocks is a good example, so yea I guess it's possible. But it all depends on how people view the word "anime." Some people only consider a show anime if its made in Japan.
