If someone calls anime a cartoon, they already don't care enough to bother correcting. Definitely not worth getting worked up over.

I do distinguish anime and cartoons separately, if for no other reason than to differentiate between the culture engrained in the work.

But I also find it somewhat useful to know who it is I am talking to when discussing "anime". If someone starts out by calling anime a cartoon or a Japanese Cartoon, I automatically put their comments and questions into the category of "unknowledgeable". The unknowledgeable also tend to refer to a "story arc" by some other name.

Cartoon, or animated cartoon to be specific (a cartoon is a printed image), is a technical term used for any 'traditional animation' (i.e. not 3D CGI) that is less than feature length (not a movie) that has even a basic plot or story. Thus the majority of anime TV shows would be considered cartoon animation. Movies, longer OVAs and the like would be 'animated features' or 'feature length animation'.

At the end of the day Anime is just Japanese animation/"cartoons." There is no reason to get upset over people not familiar anime calling it that.

No but I do hate the term "Weeb and Weaboo" Because 99% of the time it's used by some dumb ass who has zero fucking clue what they are talking about. I see this mostly on gaming forums

Not really. But people think of cartoons as something for children only so, normally, if you call an anime a cartoon people might think you're saying its something for kids and they might get offended. But honestly anime are cartoons. Japanese cartoons.

That's where I think a lot of nay sayers are coming from too. They refuse to acknowledge it as a cartoon because they think it's a bad thing and it's a name you give something that's for kids only. Yes, anime is unique w/ its hand drawn/computer animation, but that doesn't stop it from being a cartoon. I mean, it fits the very definition of it.
