If a cartoon or work of animation has spiky hair, pointy chins, Japanese dialogue and big eyes, then it's anime.

Nobody but me can define my opinions.

A claim does not trascend criticism just because you call it an opinion. By your logic I could, for example, accuse you of being a pedophile, necrophile, rapist and neo-nazi who has used stolen credit cards to buy CR accounts and then deflect all criticism by saying it's just my opinion. Or I could write a post breaking all CR rules and then evade punishment by saying that it was just my opinion.

The claim that anime is defined as loose visual style or as a collection of well-known tropes is simply wrong, and calling it an opinion doesn't do anything to change that.


The thread asked for opiniona: I stated my opinion.

That my original post is my opinion is a FACT.

You are free to express your opinion, but it in no way impacts on my opinion.

Japanese animation/artwork style. "Anime" is easier than saying "Japanese cartoon/Japanese-styled _______, etc..." all the time. I have a shortcut, so I'm taking it. Pure laziness, on my end.

woops, wanted to apologize about the bad poll. I accidentally put the same answer twice in there. I meant for one to be based on who developed the story and such versus who actually animated it.

I pretty much am the same way with it lol.

Same here. Avatar and other stuff such as RWBY are close enough that I just consider them "Anime". Japan just uses the word "anime" to describe any animation if I remember correctly, but everywhere else in the world it pretty much just corresponds to a particular style of animation and art in general that is somewhat unique to Japan. Thus I take the lazy way out as aeb0717 does in the first quote of this post.

I think it has to do with the content more than the animation.
You need a well-defined story with plot, character development, etc. much like what you'd see in a live action TV show.
Anything else is not anime, be it oriental or occidental.
