@BaronKrause - Exactly

@jcal94 - Now if you wanted to say that RWBY is not Japanese animation then I would agree with you, because it is in fact American animation. (i.e. RWBY originated from the US, not Japan)

NO one has mentioned 'Blood Blockade Battlefront'? The anime takes place in New York City!

Panty and Stocking easily.

RWBY isn't considered anime over here, it's considered anime in Japan. "Anime" over there simply means "animation," which is why even Disney movies are seen in the anime section there. On this side of the world, "anime" means "cartoons made in Japan" for the most part. You may consider "anime" to be anything drawn to look like anime, and that's whatever. It doesn't matter in the end, because you're arguing technicalities and semantics.

Call RWBY anime if you want, as long as you understand that you cannot convince anyone else to do so on objective terms. People will classify it based on their definition of "anime."

No, no, no, y'all. It's Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, for sure. As American as an anime gets, I believe.

RWBY isn't classified as anime because it isn't anime. It heavily draws influence from anime, but it itself isn't. I draw inspiration for ways of living from Japan, but I'm not Japanese. Make sense, people?

Kek. Anime means animation; in the west, it's a more broadened term to mean anime(using a western definition of Japanese animation)-styled.

Lots of people consider Avatar: the Last Airbender to be anime. And same with RWBY.

And since I already know what your response would be, I'll end by saying that Japanese people call them anime, and, using your logic, they are the arbiter of what is and isn't "anime", not you and I.
