One of the most annoying things I see people, and sometimes myself, fight about is whether shows made outside of Japan are anime. Two notable examples of this are RWBY, a 3D animation web-series by RvB creators Rooster Teeth, and Avatar, pretty sure I don't need to explain this one, if you watch Nick, you've seen Avatar. I classify anime by the art style, if it follows that of the manga art style, then it's an anime in my eyes. However, many people use the arguement of "It's not from Japan, not anime." But anime is simply a shortened way of saying animation, sadly many people ignore this fact or twist it into bullshit when it's used. So, how do you think we should look at shows and classify them as anime. Should they only be the cartoons we see from Japan, or should we say it's anime based on the art style?

How do I classify it?

If it looks like an anime, and acts like an anime, then it's an anime!

How should it be classified?

"shrugs" - I don't know. I don't really see why it needs a classification. If anything, I think it would make more sense to just get rid of the word and classify everything under the umbrella of "animation" or something similar. Get rid of the word "cartoon" and anime, as they both seem to create unnecessary distinctions. Specifically "cartoon", as to me that word doesn't even necessarily refer to something animated.

But what does a cat know? Hee hee hee...

I already posted in the reindeer thread, but man, you guessed it!

If it looks like an anime, it HAS to be one.

Oh course. Being a Terran must be the "in" thing lately. Either that or i haven't paid attention to it much.
