The only difference between anime {Japan} and regular cartoons {everywhere else} is where they are made, everything else is secondary.

That said, I prefer anime over modern cartoons largely due to the fact that they are more diverse and generally steered to an older audience, at least in the western world.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

i like anime but he is mostly right, one thing i criticize form it is bad regulation of power levels. for example, many times in their first apparitions some characters can destroy the world with a finger and in the following episodes cant even fart without tearing their own asses (ex: pikachu, oxigen qwaser, etc, etc)

I know right? Cooking Master Boy have everyone killing people while cooking at the same time, is that even believable? Then there's the part where a character has a harem of big breasted women, where did that come from?

How can he still concentrate on cooking? Also he whines al lot and the ending was disappointing, everyone turns into tang.

you can't even compare cartoons & anime since cartoons are cheap thrills for kids whilst anime is the pinnacle of contemporary art. a perfect fusion of graphical, cultural & auditory impressions. it is the ultimate way to express & convey emotion . . . cartoons are just meant as a way for negligent parents to babysit their children

Neither, the anime stylization is derived from Disney and Betty Boop cartoons so they're essentially the same.

Look up Osamu Tezuka if you don't believe me.

This man speaks the truth. Anime is short for animation, meaning anything that is animated is anime. So as much as I hate to say this something as shitty as family guy is anime while something as awesome as the cartoon below is also anime.
Swat Kats is on tv right now.

A more evil lie has never been spoken, can you be speaking truly is it still on TV?

i like to keep it varied, else it gets boring, ecchi, romance, shounen and hentai every other day.
what i mean is, i like it, but i know its not perfect and that it can be criticized

For me it has to be cartoons. Anime can be good, but the majority of them are just lesser versions of the more popular ones.

They're just being specific.

Anime is still just a subcategory of cartoons/animation.

Anime is actually just a category of cartoon, but when comparing the two, I find series that I love from both western and eastern studios, so it's hard for me to say, really.

In the states, animated comedy-sitcom series are the most successful, while in japan, action-adventure series seem to last longer.

So, I think it's a factor of whether you prefer to think or laugh.

Actually Soul Eater's one of the better animes to come out in recent years

I grew to hate most of the character types that were introduced from highscool of the dead after the first episode most particularly Shizuka & Saya

The only successful cartoons in the states are comedy while anime is more open minded to all genres inc. comedy and other things

Anime are cartoons, but I prefer non-anime cartoons, because anime all looks and feels the same.
