Yeah, that's one of those puns that people get punched for.
Or get yelled 'Carlos!' at.

FINE BE THAT WAY! YOU WIN! I SURRENDER. You guys be warned, I'll come up with something more clever next time. I'll be back with a VENGEANCE! If I was Tobuscus you would've liked it.

Long term I've been using is "Asian-American Animation". Or "AsAm-ine"

But that's just silly.

That made me laugh! I love it! But I think I'll stick with calling it Ameri-me or Amer-ime.

The way u spelled that almost looked like it reads as assinine. I am spelling that last word corectly right? (Ass-i-nine).

Don't know who that is.

The test would be if you can use the word in a sentence with someone who has no idea what you're talking about but still have them take it seriously. If I used amerime at the office it'd just get involuntary chuckles. I'd suspect Japanimation died out for a similar reason parallel to the anime fandom becoming less insular, you could use it between fans fine but to anyone else it sounds like a joke word. And people kept pronouncing it Jap-animation instead of Japan-imation.

Which had its own problems.

That, and the term was associated with the period in the mid-'90s when anime was overmarketed as being full of blood, guts, and boobs (despite that often not being the case). It deserved to disappear.

It shares the same elements. So why not call it an Annie Mae.

As for what I said earlier. I didn't meant to say anime sucks. I was just testing y'all. You know already that I love my anime.
