    Seriously, when did you start thinking that anime was different than cartoons?

    For me it was 96 when Pokemon was popular.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    When I was a kid watching it on TV, I never new of the difference. I assumed it was all American made. :P
    But when I hit highschool, I was introduced to AMV's. Which made me look more into anime, then learning the difference.

    I pretty much learned the difference when I was about 15-16, the animation styles were so vastly different than Western stuff. I then watched Wolf's Rain and have been hooked ever since. Plus I realized that anime in general have more mature themes to them so it's like I knew they weren't just for kids.

    Well, I learned the difference when I first started watching anime. Before that I didn't even know there was a difference.

    I learned the difference when I was like 9 or 10. I was watching rave master and the name " Haru" didnt sound like english. I asked my uncle and he said it was japanese and the show is a anime. He lived in japan for quite a few years.

    I hope this doesn't come across as trolling but...

    When did it become anime? When Japan started making animation. Which started in 1917, but didn't get noticeable until the '60s. Thus some of the earliest hits (Astro Boy, Gigantor) were all black-and-white.

    Cartoons on the other hand have been around for a lot longer, though the term "Cartoon" is mostly association with pictures and drawings intended for satire, caricature, and/or humor. Since the early days of animation, it's been association with animation (sometimes called Animation Cartoon) because of the similarities between cartoons and animation.

    Agreed. Gargoyles for example was made in japan while Megas XLR is American made... i fail to really see ther difference based on time zones.
