Animation wether it's in a cartoon or anime is a tool, a way of telling a story. If the story and characters leave a memorable impact then whatever I was watching was good. It's sad that some people see animation as something for kids, they're missing out so much.

In a way it can be cartoons. But it's also not. I can see both sides here. I'm more on the side that it's not c: If that makes any sense.

By literal definition it is, but it's not what people generally think of when they hear the word cartoon.

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

Anime used to be called Japanamtion at one point in time in the west, now its simply called anime. People often mistake cartoons being made for kids, when there are plenty of adult cartoons out there and likewise there are plenty of children/family based anime out there. I really don't think it matters one way or the other as long as you enjoy it who cares what others have to say or think about it.

I think it does just comes down to context, Generally if somebody is reffering to them as cartoons they are implying that you are watching childrens shows. but in any case if you compare them to western animation there is only a small comparison, How many western cartoons for example have the complexity and depth that your favourite anime have, I for one cannot think of any.

Both come under the category of animation but cartoons and anime are very different things. They are similar, being that they are both animation, but different in terms of depth, plot, art, demographic, etc.

They're cartoons. A Japanese kid came to my school, kids were asking him if he liked anime. He said "yes". He then followed by saying ,"I don't watch American anime in Japanese". They can be called cartoons. There is no distinction making it only apply to Japanese style of animation or the country of origin, Japan. People really need to stop getting upset about it. I mean who really gets mad when someone calls it cartoons ...

I constantly have these conversations with my friends. Being the only one that is really into anime, it happens all the time. There's a difference and there are also similarities. Cats and dogs are both animals but they are different animals! Am I right? Same difference.

Yes, they are animated regardless of whether they are better made now. ^_^

Yes.
It's Japanese Cartoons basically.
Anime is short for Japanese Animation so..
