Anime is a style of art that originates from Japan with strange species of humans with unatural hair colours, large shiney eyes and a teeny-weeny pointed nose. The females often have abnormally large breasts to size of melons and wear mini skirts.

May god help us all that a large majority or preteen girls like to draw themselves this way.
Anime Girl:

"Ohhhh! I Am So KAWAII!" ^_____^

"AAAHHH! TENTACLE MONSTER!" *pulls down mini skirt and runs like hell*

Anime is usually the Japanese form of art and animation when coming to Tv shows and movies. Its well drawn, alot of the time impressive and is usually based along the lines of fantasy. Its nice to watch ocasionally and is fairly interesting.

However I for one, hate the crap, well, most of it. Due to the fact that most anime fans are over-excessive with the anime that they watch. Also, MOST anime-fans tend to insult and ridicule other animation companies like Dreamworks and Disney, often for the sheer reason that they are rude and think everything should be anime. I find it offensive that they do so as I love Disney and so I chose not to watch alot of anime.

The term used to describe Japanese animation or the art style of characters borrowed from Japanese animation.

Anime, in recent years, has enjoyed a significant boom in popularity in outside of Japan, namely in the Western world.

Although anime has interesting and unusual themes, sometimes adult (not common in most Western animation), anime doesn't really deserve the mass popularity it has gained. Most anime shows follow similar and repetetive plots and themes to eachother, and as well, anime technique on a whole is very primitive in comparison to the American school of classical animation (eg. VERY static characters, anime has walk cycles of 4 frames) and it seems the Japanese animators take as many shortcuts as possible. Humor in anime for the most part is insultingly simplistic; a character says something stupid, and everyone falls down. The sad thing is, most anime that tries to be humorous borrows the exact same gags as every other "comedy" anime.

However, there are a few artful gems which defy these stereotypes, (Miyazaki's films, namely) but on the whole anime is a overhyped genre thats sadly, killing North American cartoons off television.
Some internet nerd: "Omg AMERICAN CARTOONS SUCK! ANIME!!111"

Animation student: "You don't know what you are talking about kid."

Decent cartoons that are required by dorky-American kids to have been made in Japan. They are pretty cool to watch until you're like a 25 year old virgin who does cosplay. Than you need to move out of your mom's basement and get a life.
Evangelion, Love Hina, and Gundam are examples of some popular anime.
