    Technically it's not; as it's Origin is from the U.S. not Japan.

    Yeah, technically it's not.. I believe the whole series (Avatar and LoK) were based in the US so by definition standpoint, it's not actually anime.

    Animated show, film, short, etc. made in Japan = Anime.

    Animated show, film, short, etc. not made in Japan = Animation, cartoon, toon, non-Anime.

    That's the basic general consensus.

    lol avatar was what got me into anime but its not

    I'm pretty sure Dimartino said that they tried to combine anime and western animation into Avatar

    (hence I don't think Konietzko (or is it with an s) and Dimartino were trying to make it a full anime like show)

    That's explains why the first Avatar as better than Korra. :/

    That matters not. Gargoyles is made in Japan. Oban Star Racers was made in France. Dramacon was drawn/written by a Russian American. Megas XLR was made in America. It's drawn in the anime style, so it is an anime.

    Ooo, the new comic is coming out.

    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.

    Gargoyles is made in Japan.
    This is wrong. As you can see from my attached image. The country of Origin for Gargoyles is the United States, which isn't surprising as it was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and Buena Vista Television (they are both American companies).

    I said it was "MADE" in japan, not created there. And just the first season.

    The animation was produced by Disney Television Animation’s Japanese studio and the anime influence is pronounced.

    The also did a sequel to the Lilo and Stitch TV series that aired in Japan and Australia.

    Do you have something to back that claim? Because everything I'm seeing says "MADE" in the USA.

    If you notice here, Walt Disney Animation Japan only performed work on some episodes of Gargoyles not all. The same goes with the shows for Aladdin, and Little Mermaid, Goof Troop, Bonkers, 101 Dalmatians: the series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, and Hercules.

    I don't hear anyone calling this anime...

    Have you asked? They were made in Japan after all...

    Look it's been debated a lot. As far as I'm concerned it's about the style, not where it comes from.

    That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard concerning animation. Styles are copied all the time, influence other works, and so on. Are we going to start calling Astro Boy a western cartoon because of it's early styling being heavily influenced by Disney and Mickey Mouse? NO! It's an anime. It's THE anime in many regards. So why would we start going by "Style" in the opposite direction?

    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.

    And you're point is?

    You can't even claim style makes a difference here as Sonic the Hedgehog (or SatAM) borrows from the same influences that help produce the more serious stylings in many '90s cartoons that partly derived from '80s anime. But it's clearly an American cartoon. Also, I can make the claim that Sonic X took some styling and design cues from SatAM as well, even though Sonic X is a Japanese Anime. The only real oddball there is Sonic Boom, as it takes it's styling and design cues from the video game of the same name.

    They... are... all... cartoons.

    If you were to say, put an American cartoon character into anime like they did people and cartoons in Who Framed Roger Rabbit... which would it be?

    Also what about Voltron and Power Rangers? Or Transformers? Or Oban Star Racers? Samurai Jack?

    teen Titans?

    Really now? All cartoons... Well isn't that something...

    In the case of the Anime version of Iron Man, it's anime. -Made in Japan
    In the case of the Anime version of Power Puff Girls, it's anime. -Made in Japan
    In the case of Popeye vs. Anime, it's a mash-up that no one cares for. -Made by some random person online.

    But you were just saying stuff isn't anime just because it is made in Japan. Or did you change your mind about Bonkers?

    Seriously aside from where it is made, what is the difference? be detailed.

    What? What are you even talking about? I was joking about Bonkers, and even still the majority of the show was made outside of Japan. So I guess only certain episodes would be anime? I'm okay with that. LOL

    And seriously, my point is where it's made is the only difference! Literally from the definition of the term "anime", where it's made is the only damn difference!
    And the idea that no one ought to care is nice (and I agree to it), but there's plenty of fan boys and fan girls that would kill in anger of such a thing. I mean seriously, this is a tiring issue that ought to be dead by now, BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Someone Just HAAASSSSS to keep beating a dead horse.

    Dead horse? I was responding to the topic of this thread.

    First off "Anime" is just slang short for "Animated" because in Japan all words end in either an N or a vowel.


    Secondly you demanded proof from me to support my side of things. So give me one valid reason why where something is made makes the difference? If say an anime studio in Japan sent their stuff out to California to get made the way Disney does them... is it still anime?


    My argument is that it's the style. like in that last video where we had a cartoon redrawn into an anime where the exact same things down to the dialogue went on.


    So what proof do you have that says Korra isn't an anime? If you had never seen or heard of it it before and never saw the credits, but just watched an episode, wouldn't you have said it was an anime?

    Legend of Korra isn't an anime. It was produced by the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, CA. The creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Michael Dante DiMartino are also American. The animation was mostly done by Studio Mir, which is South Korean.

    I know it's made in America by Americans. That in no way stops it from being anime.


    Seriously to you have anything to proves that anime can only be made in Japan? Not just an opinion.


    Keeping in ind I'm pretty sure that people IN Japan consider/call ALL cartoons anime. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...0095711AAtzO6V
