If you think otherwise, you should be ashamed.

A cartoon is a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works.

Anime = Animation = The process of creating a continuous motion and shape change illusion by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion as in motion pictures in general is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.

Anime = Animation = Cartoon.

Everyone in the world knew anime are cartoons except that one "western" country, and you all know who they are.

Apparently everyone who makes a post saying they aren't. I'm just proving a point.

Cartoon - a simple drawing showing the features of its subjects in a humorously exaggerated way, especially a satirical one in a newspaper or magazine.

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

Cartoon - a full-size drawing made by an artist as a preliminary design for a painting or other work of art.

Cartoon - a series of drawings that tell a story

Cartoon - a film or television show made by photographing a series of drawings : an animated film or television show

Cartoon - anything animated using 2D or 1D drawing methods.


Just because it's from "Wikipedia" doesn't necessarily mean it's incorrect. That is just ignorant, you are ignorant.

No one is really denying that it's a cartoon. Some people don't like using that word for anime because it draws associations with frivolousness or shows made for children, which a lot of anime isn't. It's the same as calling Pixar-type movies "animations" or calling comic books "graphic novels." A word can be technically correct but convey the wrong meaning to people.

If you guys claim that this argument doesn't matter, you posting just contradicted your statement. And yes, there are people, mostly among the younger community who still get... Aggressively defensive about anime not being a cartoon. It's ludicrous, mane.
So basically,
Anime is animation. As are cartoons. Anime is a more specific type of cartoon, when referring to mostly Japanese animation or the animation "style", per se. But yes, it is a cartoon.

I don't give a damn if by definition Anime are Cartoons. Cartoons conveys the wrong sort of meaning because it's associated with children's shows, and the Anime I watch is far from being G Rated, let alone being suitable for children. Just because it's the correct word by definition, does not change the fact that it will always have different meanings to other people.

exactly. just because there is more than one word for something doesn't mean that one is necessarily more "correct" than another. have you ever heard of a "synonym"?

What do you call shows like The Simpsons, King of the Hill, or Archer?
