Anime is animation from japan, if the Simpsons or spongebob were drawn in japan it would be anime. When written in japanese it just means animation.

Despite the actual definition of "animation" or "anime" I just consider it a popular art style. That way I don't have to care about defining something based on were it's from, even though people from another country can draw/animate the same way if they wanted to.

Anime is a form of animation created or based in Japan. The name anime comes from Animae---tione, basically shortening the word Animation in Japanese accent.

That was very awkward for me lol, considering ive never seen anything along that line in an anime, or anything along that line taken that far.

Uniquely imaginative, seldom understood, Japanese animation.

A medium if not a true art. A method of effective story telling. Production of visual entertainment on lower budgets which can have excellent results if done correctly. Intellectually stimulating if intended to be. Perhaps the best animation there is, though not so widely accepted as American animation. Anime may very well be defined as the only true mature adult animation, whereas some other fare is immature in its subject material and execution.

Anime to me means animations. Yes there are different types. It wouldn't bother me if someone described the shows found here as Japanese cartoons.
