I find ignorance offensive.

Edit: That being said, anime is a form of cartoon, but nobody calls it that but ignorant people.

No, because that's what anime is. It's a Japanese cartoon.

To my understanding, only comical animations are technically cartoons. Saying someone is "cartoonish" for instance, is quite a different thing from calling them "animated." So, I'd say there's no real problem with calling, let's say, Nichijou, a cartoon. In fact, I think the show has a hell of a lot in common with western cartoons. Likewise, I wouldn't call The Nightmare Before Christmas a cartoon, but I would call The Incredibles a cartoon. The term "animation" fits better for things like Evangelion.

More to the point, though. No, I don't get offended. In fact, if I'm being honest, I find their ignorance adorable, and it makes me feel a pang of superiority. In those situations, if anyone is at risk of seeming like a cunt, it's me.

I prefer the term watching an "animation." Animated tv show, animated music video etc.

Ha, in all seriousness no I'm not bothered by people calling anime a cartoon. It is one.

It's more annoying when people define ask if you're looking at an anime when you're reading manga.

It's kinda demeaning, but I don't feel personally offended. More slightly annoyed.

Anime is short for Animeeshun, the Japanese word for all Animation. The Japanese call all cartoons no mater where they are from Anime. Spong bob is anime, bugs bunny is anime, pokemon is cartoon, zoids is a cartoon, Conan the adventurer is a anime. 'Its all Animation, so they are all anime and cartoons.



anime/cartoons they mean the damn same thing.

No. I commonly use "cartoon," "Japanese cartoon," and "anime" interchangeably.

no, because that's what it is. I find it pretentious as FRICK when people get mad about it. Correct if you will, but it's really not that deep.

Why would I waste my time getting mad over something like that?

Anime are Japanese Cartoons.
