Definitely cartoons to me, but it doesn't mean that it has to be only for kids though.

Anime is technically Japanese slang for any kind of animation (even Western cartoons like Tom & Jerry) but I prefer them to most Western cartoons.

A cartoon is a story told through the medium of animation. In Japan the term "anime" is a shorthand for the English word animation, and refers to all works of animation collectively include western animation. Disney cartoons are referred to as anime in Japan. Using the term "anime" to specifically apply to a Japanese animation is a purely western occurrence. You could argue there is a certain stylistic distinction between the Japanese and Western animation, though there are various worlds on both sides that break these yet still are referred to by there respective regional terms be it "anime" or "cartoon", though using region distinctions for works that are not necessarily distinct is generally irrelevant or unnecessary. Anime is most definitely cartoons.

I would say anime and cartoon is another difference, because cartoons would be things that are for kids, and perfect for their age to watch. Anime is all kind of stuff, that doesn't represent cartoon, like sometimes anime could be nudity, horror, action and romance, but I mean there could be anime-cartoons, just that isn't scary, but it's friendly to watch.

Do you know what the word "anime" means? It is the Japanese word for cartoon/animation. The Japanese refer to American cartoons as anime, they don't have some special name for it. It's only people outside Japan that try to make "anime" and "cartoons" different.

You are watching cartoons. Accept that fact and move on.


As long as you do your best in life, why should it matter if you enjoy watching cartoons? I know of couples who are 60+ years old and they watch cartoons.

In the end, people are judgemental and it is up to you whether or not you let that affect your life and your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. If someone can't accept that side of you, maybe you should reconsider your friendship.



I had to difference it to my Uncle when he told me those are for baby! So I told him Cartoon are like Bug Bunny, Micky Mouse, and Donald Duck etc.. And that Anime are like Ninja scroll type.. bloody, Violence, Sex, some have cussing etc.. I told him its for teenager and adult and its not suitable for kid to watch. lol
