    Question American Animes

    Are there any, I know Nick Simmons has one manga series (which is in trouble). Have we made any other series anime or manga?

    There isn't any Anime/Manga that is American for one reason: Anime/Manga are used to refer to the Animation and Comics that come from Japan.

    However, there are some works in the US that are inspired by Anime. The two examples I can think of are Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the Comic Book Scott Pilgrim (which has a Film Adaption coming out soon )

    Certainly more and more american animation is being influenced by anime I don't think you could really call it anime. If anime becomes a term we use for everything it means nothing.

    I see anime as how you draw it its a certain type of animation, it doesn't have to come from Japan from my point of view.

    Drawing style is an important feature of animation. But its not the only important feature. There is a distinct cultural difference in story telling between Japanese and American animation. This by itself is enough reason not to lump the two into the same category...

    A cartoon, and the Japanese would most likely call it 'anime' in the literal sense, meaning animation. That's if you get published at all.

    Anime, to us westerners, is an animated program that originates from Japan, made for a Japanese audience (I know some exceptions exist, but those are rare). Anime to them is like a cartoon to us. To be honest, there really isn't a difference between the two, other then the art style and the culture the stories originate from.
