It just needs to be a cartoon animated in japan. There are art styles that look very "american" (panty and stocking) so there isn't a set "style" companies have to follow

what this guy said; some people try to say it is something else like a style, but this is the literal definition.

Well I guess the generally accepted idea is that it's a cartoon animated in Japan, though personally I feel like it's an arbitrary distinction, do they call cartoons something else in other countries?

yeah in japan they call cartoons anime lol, it doesn't matter if it is made in japan or not unlike the English word anime which means Japanese cartoon. So yeah it is a bit silly, just call em japanese cartoons if you want to, but people will get randomly offended.

I suppose it's easier to say "anime" than it is "Japanese cartoon," but typically I use it in reference to the art style.

I understand what lots of you are saying about anime being from Japan, but why us that needed. Isn't there a chance we could loose great stories/shows because they are not from Japan? I think there has to be a line where authenticity should be disregarded.

Based off of this season of shows, I don't think those last two are required at all.

Yeah I'll admit I'm digging Gangsta, but honestly other than that I can safely say this season did not grab me at all.
