    Default The old Argument: What defines what anime is?

    How do you decide what anime is or isn't? Can it be made in america or Korea or France or Canada? Can it be live action?

    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.

    Anime is pretty much short of animation.. only Japanese animators adapted the word (animation) and changed it to Anime. Anything made outside of Japan that resembles anime or looks exactly like anime.. still isn't anime. I would call it high quality cartoons or animation instead.

    Default Re: The old Argument: What defines what anime is?

    I think it's more about style, not where it's made. That's a bit racist. There are too many line crossings like America like Empowered (whose creator also worked on Dirty Pair), Ninja Highschool (whose creator was Japanese but living in California), Avatar, X-men and the other Marvel animes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Megas XLR, Transformers, Jem, Mortal Kombat (Animated series), Street Fighter, Howl's Moving Castle and Ponyo (both based on non Japanese writers), Highlander: Search For Vengance, Hellboy (animated movies), Teen Titans, Wreck it Ralf, Kingdom hearts, Astro Boy (movie), Megatokyo, Oban Star Racers (largely agreed to be an anime but made in France), Godzilla (animated series... there were a couple), Megas XLR, Voltron,Thuindercats, he-man, Denver the Last Dinosaur, My Little Pony, Gargoyles, Lady Death, CSI: Manga, Star Wars, Star Trek, Witchblade, Sherryl Kenyon's Dark Hunter's manga, GI Joe, The Vampire's assistant, Dark Fury (Riddick), Beast Wars, Return To Labyrinth, Courtney Crumrin, Sinfest, Marvel Mangaverse, Extreme Ghost Busters, Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, and so much more.




    So I go by the style, rather than the origin. Heck, I wrote a whole book in it. http://www.amazon.com/How-To-Be-Anim...nime+character

    I mean come on, there are things out there that if you didn't know they were from America or someplace else you'd already be calling them anime. I can't find one reason why origin makes something anime or not. I mean people let Korean manga slide no questions asked. Look at that list up there and find me a reason why some of that's anime and the rest isn't besides where it was made.

    Yes. Yes you do.


    Examples include GI Joe, The Chronicles of Riddick, Mortal Kombat, DOA, Street Fighter, Deathnote, Sailor Moon, Last Airbender movie, Speed Racer, Lady Gaga, Power Rangers, Godzilla, Matrix, Kung Fu Hustle, Blood: The Last Vampire, Scott Pilgrim, Bloody Mallory, Dragonball. Dragon Wars, Kill Bill, The Guyver, The Man with the Iron Fist, Hero, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Austin Powers 3, and many more.

    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.

    Its not racist at all. Yes, people copy styles all the time, but it doesnt mean anything. While cartoons can be see as a form of art, they do not follow the rules of art.

    For example- many people will get highly offended if you call manhwa an anime or manga, because its Korean but is basically the same art style.

    Even Wikipedia classifies anime as "Japanese animation" [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime]

    You can go classifying American cartoons like MLP "anime" all you want, but they -arent- anime. Plain and simple.

    Because WIkipedia definitions are always correct and complete?

    You have yet to say WHY they aren't. I mean I'm seeing a bunch of teenagers with rainbow hair, magical powers, big eyes, small mouths, occassional boy trouble, often depicted in yuri fan fics... and now there's a Japanese Manga. Also the Original MLP was made in Japan. Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland was originally a 100 year old newspaper comic and Howl's Moving Castle is a British book.


    like I asked before ASIDE FROM WHERE IT WAS MADE what is the difference?







    Here's a simple way to solve this argument. Go up to a person who speaks Japanese. Show them "My Little Pony" or the "Simpsons" and ask them what this is and have them answer in their native language. What word would they use?

    Because WHERE ITS MADE IS THE WHOLE POINT.

    I could go to an adult American and show them Naruto and they'll call it a "cartoon", which gives the connotation that its American. Im sure youd have a huge fit over that though, despite the fact that when you boil down to it theyre all essentially cartoons.

    I must be dumb, because I'm serious. I see anime characters there. How about you?


    I'm absolutely serious. I don't think anime should be described by where it's from or based on a word that is basically just Japanese for "Animation". They'd refer to anything we made with cartoons by calling it "anime" as well.


    Look at GI Joe. That was originally from Japan, took place in America (mostly) and the movies were definately made over here.

    If we take a Japanese cartoon and make it here, does that mean it's no longer good? If you make an American Cartoon into a video game is it suddenly anime?







    Anime is all about the style. Not the origin.


    Seriously aside fromt he origin what's the difference if it's drawn the same?



    Read Dramacon?

    Rooster Teeth is making a new animated show that resembles anime but isn't because it isn't written by Japanese writers. They even confirmed IT ISN'T anime. This throws the style argument down the window, right?

    Just because you think a show is anime doesn't make it anime. Damn just search My Anime List for every show considered anime.

    Okay, what's your opinion of Oban Star Racers, riddick: Dark Fury, and Hellboy: Sword of the Storms?


    Coneheads: We come from France!

    This is one of those "facts" that seems mostly opinion. Like where the guys who write dictionaries get the spelling and meaning of words.


    And nobody has answered my question. Aside from where they are made, what is the difference? And I found Oban on that site http://myanimelist.net/anime/1212/Oban_Star-Racers

    I have also found that several animes I listed off the top of my head were not on the site.

    Visual characteristics


    Anime artists use many distinct visual styles.


    Many commentators refer to anime as an art form.[29] As a visual medium, it can emphasize visual styles. The styles can vary from artist to artist or from studio to studio. Some titles make extensive use of common stylization: FLCL, for example, has a reputation for wild, exaggerated stylization. Other titles use different methods: Only Yesterday or Jin-Roh take much more realistic approaches, featuring few stylistic exaggerations; Pokémon uses drawings which specifically do not distinguish the nationality of characters.[30]
    While different titles and different artists have their own artistic styles, many stylistic elements have become so common that describe them as definitive of anime in general. However, this does not mean that all modern anime share one strict, common art-style. Many anime have a very different art style from what would commonly be called "anime style", yet fans still use the word "anime" to refer to these titles. Generally, the most common form of anime drawings include "exaggerated physical features such as large eyes, big hair and elongated limbs... and dramatically shaped speech bubbles, speed lines and onomatopoeic, exclamatory typography."[31]
    The influences of Japanese calligraphy and Japanese painting also characterize linear qualities of the anime style. The round ink brush traditionally used for writing kanji and for painting, produces a stroke of widely varying thickness.
    Anime also tends to borrow many elements from manga, including text in the background and panel layouts. For example, an opening may employ manga panels to tell the story, or to dramatize a point for humorous effect. See for example the anime Kare Kano.
    Character design

    Basic character designs use techniques implemented in cartoon design.[specify][citation needed] Among these techniques include the use of reference sketches to ensure character proportionality and multiple angle designs.
    John Opplinger, an analyst for AnimeNation, noted that like in any other medium the importance of a recognizable silhouette allowing viewers to instantly recognize the a character. However he stated that although anime series that featured of distinctive and memorable characters from prolific designers contained many examples of not performing well, whereas other series that relied on very narrow variances between characters have been popular. Opplinger stated that although ultimately the majority of the contemporary character designs in anime series evolve to match the tastes of the paying audience, there are occasional shows that feature distinctive character designs.[32]
    Proportions

    Body proportions emulated in anime come from proportions of the human body. The height of the head is considered by the artist as the base unit of proportion. Head heights can vary as long as the remainder of the body remains proportional. Most anime characters are about seven to eight heads tall, and extreme heights are set around nine heads tall.[33]
    Variations to proportion can be modified by the artist. Super-deformed characters feature a non-proportionally small body compared to the head. Sometimes specific body parts, like legs, are shortened or elongated for added emphasis. Most super deformed characters are two to four heads tall. Some anime works like Crayon Shin-chan completely disregard these proportions, such that they resemble Western cartoons. For exaggeration, certain body features are increased in proportion.[33] Comedic effects often utilize these variations.
    Eye styles

    Many anime and manga characters feature large eyes. Osamu Tezuka, who is believed to have been the first to use this technique, was inspired by the exaggerated features of American cartoon characters such as Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse, and Disney's Bambi.[5][34] Tezuka found that large eyes style allowed his characters to show emotions distinctly. When Tezuka began drawing Ribbon no Kishi, the first manga specifically targeted at young girls, Tezuka further exaggerated the size of the characters' eyes. Indeed, through Ribbon no Kishi, Tezuka set a stylistic template that later shōjo artists tended to follow.
    Coloring is added to give eyes, particularly to the cornea, some depth. The depth is accomplished by applying variable color shading. Generally, a mixture of a light shade, the tone color, and a dark shade is used.[35][36] Cultural anthropologist Matt Thorn argues that Japanese animators and audiences do not perceive such stylized eyes as inherently more or less foreign.[37]
    However, not all anime have large eyes. For example, some of the work of Hayao Miyazaki and Toshiro Kawamoto are known for having realistically proportioned eyes, as well as realistic hair colors on their characters.[38]
    Facial expressions

    See also: Manga iconography
    Anime characters may employ a variety of predetermined facial expressions to denote moods and thoughts.[39] These techniques are often different in form than their counterparts in Western animation, and they include a fixed iconography that's used as shorthand for certain emotions and moods.[40]
    There are a number of other stylistic elements that are common to conventional anime as well but more often used in comedies. Characters that are shocked or surprised will perform a "face fault", in which they display an extremely exaggerated expression. Angry characters may exhibit a "vein" or "stress mark" effect, where lines representing bulging veins will appear on their forehead. Angry women will sometimes summon a mallet from nowhere and strike another character with it, mainly for the sake of slapstick comedy. Male characters will develop a bloody nose around their female love interests (typically to indicate arousal, which is a play on an old wives' tale).[40] Embarrassed or stressed characters either produce a massive sweat-drop (which has become one of the most widely recognized motifs of conventional anime) or produce a visibly red blush or set of parallel (sometimes squiggly) lines beneath the eyes, especially as a manifestation of repressed romantic feelings. Characters who want to childishly taunt someone may pull an akanbe face (by pulling an eyelid down with a finger to expose the red underside). Characters may also have large "X" eyes to show a knockout, or in some cases, even illness. This is typically used for comedic purposes. Vacant, non-reflecting eyes can be used to indicate a state of semi-consciousness.
    Animation technique

    Like all animation, the production processes of storyboarding, voice acting, character design, cel production and so on still apply. With improvements in computer technology, computer animation increased the efficiency of the whole production process.
    In the 1990s, the Japanese began incorporating computers into the animation process. Some works such as Ghost in the Shell and Princess Mononoke mixed cel animation with computer-generated images. Towards the late 1990s, companies had began shifting towards drawing cels digitally instead of with paint. Fuji Films to boldly announce the halt of cel production for the animation industry prompting a mass scramble to import foreign cels and transfer more of the production line to digital.[41]
    The large majority of anime uses traditional animation, which better allows for division of labor, pose to pose approach and checking of drawings before they are shot – practices favored by the anime industry.[42] Other mediums are mostly limited to independently made short films,[43] examples of which are the silhouette and other cutout animation of Noburō Ōfuji,[42][44] the stop motion puppet animation of Tadahito Mochinaga, Kihachirō Kawamoto[45] and Tomoyasu Murata[46] and the computer animation of Satoshi Tomioka[47] (most famously Usavich).[48] Sara Pocock, an animator and contributor to Anime News Network, described the majority of "mainstream" anime as being animated using the pose to pose style but using fewer expressive keyframes and more in-between animation.[49]
    Japanese animation studios were pioneers of many limited animation techniques. Ke Jiang, an animator for Disney, told Anime News Network that like everyone in animation, Japanese animators study the techniques of Disney in school, however Japanese anime has its own set of rules to be followed that have developed over time. Unlike Disney animation where the emphasis is on the movement, Anime emphasizes the art quality as limited animation techniques could make up for the lack of time spent on movement. Such techniques were often used not only to meet deadlines but also as artistic devices.[50] Even in bigger productions, studios often use limited animation techniques, even intentionally at times, to fool the eye into thinking there is more movement than there is.[5] John Oppliger, when examining the question of animation quality inconsistency from titles, noted a trend in his weekly column for AnimeNation "Ask John" that for titles from larger studios, stating that the "most reliable predictor for animation quality" is the profile of the series itself, and that "shows that are expected to be big hits or shows that are consciously crafted to make a big splash ... typically get unusually exceptional animation quality." He stated that although viewers can expect high quality animation from small studios with a reputation for high quality animation due to their ability to focus all of their resources on a single work, large studios tend to work on several shows and thus prioritize speed over quality. Oppliger stated that anime is one of the rare mediums were putting together an all-star cast usually comes out looking "tremendously impressive."[51]
    Anime scenes place emphasis on achieving three-dimensional views. Backgrounds depict the scenes' atmosphere.[5] For example, anime often puts emphasis on changing seasons, as can be seen in numerous anime, such as Tenchi Muyo!. Sometimes actual settings have been duplicated into an anime. The backgrounds for the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are based on various locations within the suburb of Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan.[52]
    Camera effects

    Camera angles, camera movement, and lighting play an important role in scenes. Directors often have the discretion of determining viewing angles for scenes, particularly regarding backgrounds. In addition, camera angles show perspective.[53] Directors can also choose camera effects within cinematography, such as panning, zooming, facial closeup, and panoramic.[54]

    Story themes

    Producers have adapted a wide variety of stories into anime, sourcing from Japanese history, classical literature, adult-oriented themes, and even American westerns. While animation for children exists, most anime target an older audience.[55]
    As early as Osamu Tezuka's Atom Boy (1963), the doll with a soul - from the Japanese old folk belief that a doll loved and cared for can develop a soul - became a recurring motif in Japan. This fuzzy border between the human and the mechanical would supply themes again and again, appearing later also as cybernetic humans beginning with the 8 Man (1963) series and the robot where humans initially controlled robots via radio but later as pilots in their interior as in the giant robot subgenre. These shows presented technology not as inherently good or evil, but instead as a tool that could be used in either way. Gilles Poitras describes this as "appropriate", since the Japanese had seen the rebirth of their own nation through technology after the destruction at the hands of political and military power.[41]
    In the 1970s, Poitras writes, many series began drawing from great heroes and epic stories. Several works mined the manga writer Leiji Matsumoto's tales of heroism, of courage, of humanity, and of suffering set in many a strange world. Narratives in the fantasy and supernatural genre drew especially from Shinto and Buddhist legends and practices - and later from western influences, from sources such as Dungeons and Dragons.[41]

    He fails to understand that just because he thinks something is an anime doesnt make it an anime. The shows might look anime-ish in his OPINION, but the FACT is they arent. Plain and simple. He also doesnt seem to realize hes the -only- person who seems to think hes right and everyone else in the world is wrong.

    ......hes like a Republican


    Edit: all you just listed are English cartoons. Puffy Amiyumi just happens to include Japanese pop singers, so its more a collaboration show

    I did read your posts and look up the sites. Many things are missing... like how the Bible doesn't mention woodpeckers and things. And you never answered my question.


    Now, if where the cartoon is made is so important, what about things like Gargoyles? Season one was made in Japan.




    Does that make it anime?
