    Re: Anime or Cartoons?

    I don't know,its not a cartoon cartoon, but most people consider it that. To me its more of a japanese art. Whenever someone thinks of anime they dont think of Bugs Bunny and such, they think of the certain way that anime is drawn that makes it stereotyped as japanese art. So really, to put it simply it all depends on your backround knowledge and what you usually see it as.
    Pain is just a state of mind. So get over it.

    I agree
    ...wasn't a post like this already started....???
    well anyways what I think is that anime isn't a cartoon... neither japanese(although animation did start in japan) nor american etc.
    if you look at a cartoon see the art the way its drawn etc.
    anime is so much better in everything really
    cartoons-for children(and some adults who like them)cheap drawings(not alot of detail)mostly with animals or talking animals no real story line, etc.(Theres ALOT people!!!!)
    anime-good detailed drawings,real meaningfull story lines/plots
    ALL AROUND BETTER

    That's not always true. There are good animated American cartoons and ones with deep story lines. Like I said, anime is meant mostly for kids in Japan. It's kid stuff. So, I don't argee with your post. I don't see how you can use that to say that it's not cartoons.

    Even though cartoons and anime use animation, the difference is in the style, content, and story.So in my opinion, they are different.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Re: Anime or Cartoons?

    Anime shows are Japanese cartoons. So it could be a cartoon. But cartoons, the ones we originally know from when we were around three years old or sometime there, are really the Western ones. And I have to agree a bit with Innerhell. He said a cartoon is nothing more than "kid's stuff" (his exact words X3).

    True. Western cartoons are able to get children's attention. And anime, the way I see it, can also attract young kids' liking, though there also some anime that aren't meant to be for kids such as those of yaoi and yuri. Anime, too, as Innerhell also said, can make a person feel for one character or more and understand his/her/their feelings which I have to agree on, as well.

    And Joe Mage said that the differences are the style, content and story. I also have to agree.

    But then anime is also cartoon, both being animated, only, they, anime, are the Japanese cartoons, not Western. And there are other differences, those I've just said, and I wouldn't feel like typing them again.

    Well, that's what I think. Hopefully, you may understand it and see things like I do. And I'm not saying it in a vain way. ^^;

    And if you think I just sounded so mature, I'm not. I'm younger than you think I am, if you judged by the way I sounded just earlier...

    Anime is Japanese Animation. Which is a cartoon but has a different name. But has more adult innuendo. Kinda like our Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. But anime should be a religon! Jk. No but for real it should!
