Well anime, generally speaking is a cartoon.
Only difference between regular cartoons and anime, is that anime is typically more detailed.
Cartoons still have fantasy, adventure, school, just like anime can.

It is cartoon. I don't care about being politically correct.

There are tons of nonJapanese cartoons (Mulan, Ugly Americans) that are just as deep, or meaningful or mature as Japanese cartoons. So that's not a good reason to say that anime isn't cartoon.

Google "cartoons". Open a tab next to it and google "anime".

That's your answer

lol i know there both the same, but I see anime more of an art than american made cartoons lol, but you said it well truthful I thank you for you input.


I disagree, I don't think that anime as a whole is more of an art than american made cartoons. I think most american cartoonists would be pretty upset with that statement. They spend a lot of time developing a style and aesthetic for their cartoons not to mention writing. American made cartoons are everybit as much an art as anime. I don't mean to sound defensive, but really all cartoonists, whether they are making Gravity Falls or Fullmetal Alchemist are putting as much thought, creativity and skill into their work and really deserve equal credit for it.

They are. But so what? It isn't called the same thing because the audience isn't the same.

I think the reason this "Is Anime a Sort of Cartoon?" debate keeps coming up is because the word "cartoon" has taken on a connotation that the material in question is inherently targeted to children and that consumption thereof is childish. That's the battle to be fought, not an argument over whether anime are cartoons or not. Doonesbury, The Boondocks, Mallard Filmore, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Futurama, Heavy Metal, there are plenty of examples of cartoons with an adult audience in mind. The same holds for anime. The notion that cartoons are exclusively for children and that consumption thereof makes one childish is demonstrably false.

Frankly, I don't know how this obvious lie has come to be so widely accepted that the anime community feels a need to defend itself. And besides, even if one does watch an anime which legitimately was targeted to children whose business is that but their own? There's no need to justify that.
