For the Japanese, anime is not just animation produced in their country, for them, anime is animation itself. We may not think of it that way, but ask any Japanese person and they´ll tell you that Adventure Time is just as much anime as Naruto is, the term anime is one of the most difficult to get right because Japan has a very different meaning to what the rest of the world says.

The creators of Avatar The Last Airbender stated that the best anime is the one that has a perfect balance between great action scenes, good drama and character development and an interesting story. Any animation project can achieve what they said, it doesn´t have to be restricted to Japan or any other country.

But that's what anime is
I mean, anime is technically a subset of any other form of cartoon, despite what people like to say, but it wouldn't be anime if it weren't Japanese in origin, I'd say.

Then it would be French, and look like Last Airbender and Totally Spies.

this fight over whether to call it anime or animation reminds me of the thread of whether anime characters look white or not lol

us:its anime

japan:the characters look japanese
us:they white

This.

Anime is just the Japanese word for animation. Not a genre.

Then maybe English speaking animation wouldn't have such terrible voice actors...
