Anime: a drawing style that originated in Japan. Many other countries have started drawing in this style, and yes, they COUNT AS ANIME.

By that definition, some animated shows from Japan wouldn't be anime, as they don't follow the "style".

Ok, seriously? I feel like you're just saying that because I said some shows from the west are anime. Do you really have to nitpick?

Would Panty and Stocking not count as anime then?
I'm confuzzled.

Really beginning to regret posting... Ok, revised definition: A drawing style that originated in Japan. But innovators in the genre started deviating from the original style, and those count as anime. Productions from the west that use the original style also count as anime. THERE.

Japanese cartoons/animation.
There's a style of artwork that's commonly used for anime, but not all anime use that style and some western animation uses that style. Besides animation style, there's also the cultural aspect of who the intended audience is.

And all you peple bad mouthing western animation, go watch something from the DCAU. Those shows are definitely up there with the better anime and are clearly a western drawing style, so never get considered anime like Avatar sometimes is.

If you believe that is nitpicking, you may want to look up the definition of "define".

The traditional definition of anime is animation produced in Japan, but with today's internationalization of products, that definition is outmoded. A more modern definition would be animation whose production is initiated in Japan, and whose primary intended audience is Japan.

I was actually just curious. If Panty and Stocking isn't anime, would it just be cartoons?

An art form that was introduced to the world by Japan. Like all art forms it has its ups and downs and good, bad and indifferent series. And like every other art form self styled critics pans any series that does not pander to their individual fetishes. Where critic A compares and contrasts Series X and Series Y yet neither series has anything in common other than being animated.

I seen quite a number of people pan shows that don't cater to their fetish well enough, resulting in disappointment.

Talk about easily irritated. I read absolutely no harshness in the other people's comments. Even if there was it's a very small thing to get irritated by.
