I honestly don't take offense to it. Anime is Japanese animation, so it's in the same family. I can't stand seeing people within the anime community/culture act like snobs to those who don't really engage in it like that. Take a chill pill lol It's not that serious. lol.

well, what I personally think is that anime is just a different art style than western cartoons and that's the only difference there is.

Anime is short for animeeshun, its not a style! its a word that means Animation, so anything animated is anime, no matter where it is from.

i only get slightly aggravated when I watch a show and someone says, "Youre watching anime? Thats stupid.", or something along those lines and then I see said someone watching Family Guy or American Dad. It is a cartoon. Id be like, "Yeah, its a cartoon. I hadnt noticed. Thanks.".

No. There are much more important things in life to worry about than that.

Doesn't make me angry/annoyed, they're a type of cartoon (being animation). Now, if someone calls anime a cartoon I'll probably just get the instant notion that they probably lack knowledge on it because not many people would refer to it as a "cartoon". That's about it though ^^

I don't even hear people talk about anime that much, but no what's the point of getting offended.

Anime is still cartoons. There's really no way to get around that.

Are people offended because they inherently believe cartoons are somehow inferior to other kinds of visual stuff? I watch cartoons and I'm 27. Wow, that's worse than playing games at 27 or something.

I like to separate the two in conversation because I work with both early American and modern Japanese animation styles in my drawings, but I could never get mad at anyone who would say something like that. What are words even? Descriptions that society had used to allow us to point at something and instantly categorize it? All the word "Cartoon" is is a series of syllables, put together and directed towards the art of moving drawings...

That, and that's kind of rude. - 3 -

I get annoyed but not mad. To me, those two might be the same form of thing (being animated and all) but the way anime is made (in essence I guess) and the way it feels is different.

Also, anime is usually thought of by people as some teenager kind of toons while cartoons are generally thought of as a kids thing. It would really bother me when people who don't know the difference would suddenly think that someone who watches an anime is watching something like PPG or Spongebob and think they're little kids because of that. Many even get called babies or something because of that. At least it's different if they knew it was anime. Yes, they might get insulted and called weebs but at least those non fans know what we're watching isn't some purely kiddy show.

Plus, Anime would mean were watching a Japanese made show (a Japanese cartoon like you guys said) and cartoon is generally for everywhere else.

I do this to avoid awkward conversation, I'm pretty sure I had one guy talking to me about anime porn after I said I liked anime....like wtf? How am I even suppose to respond to that? I just said "excuse me?" with a look of disgust...he quickly changed the topic.
