It depends entirely on the rating and content.

Spirited Away is child friendly. Highschool DxD, however, is not.

Hentai is also not child friendly, and hentai is basically adult cartoons.

Anime is such a broad art form with multiple genres, sub-genres, as well as age demographics. So no, I wouldn't classify it for only adults. That's especially the case since there are multiple series aimed at younger audiences.

Now, is there a distinction between what Japan considers animated series suitable for certain ages and what America has? Absolutely. But still, labeling all of anime as "adult cartoons" is too much.

No, anime is just Japanese animation and it can be for any age range

No because anime has many genres to fit the appropriate age groups

I made that mistake once. People in high school never forgot - I'm glad I'm away from them now. People in university are much better.

No because not all anime is adult-oriented

Nah, anime is simply a style that originated in Japan. And runs the entire gambit from preschool stuff to hentai age wise.

It all depends on how nitpicky you are I guess! I think most people want to refer to it as Japanese animation. I agree with the others though, I'd consider hentai more "adult" for obvious reasons.

Japanese Cartoons maybe, but Japanese animation seems most accurate.

No, I call it anime. It doesn't bother me though when someone else does it.

I dislike referring to anime as cartoons so I'd probably use the word animation. But anyway... there are some anime that is genuinely for kids.

Some anime are targeted to adults and some are targeted at children, so the answer is yes and no.
