Another form of story telling that uses animation as its medium. Just like how books use text, movies use actors. Anime uses animation to tell the story, and can be very serious or very funny.

Either way anime is just another way of telling a story, all stereotypes attached to it are unnecessary.
Have you watched Monster? That is one of the darkest anime I've ever seen... It really goes deep into the humanity of good vs evil.

The Japanese artists who draw anime females seem to have a serious cat fetish. Seriously, just look at the female faces. Don't they look catlike? With the small noses, huge mouths, and big watery, cute, hypnotic eyes. Not that it matters though, since the babes have big, bouncing, perfect tits and sexy, curvacious asses to go with the faces, and cats are cool. God I wanna get me one of those girls to make my dick very happy :^))
Anime babes are fuckably HOT, too bad the male characters just don't know what they're missing by NOT fucking them already.

Okay, drumroll please...... Anime is simply fun. F, U, N, FUN. It's entertainment, just like hockey (yes I watch hockey), football, or Looney Toons. I for one laugh my ass off at Daffy Duck, but enjoy Speed Racer, I root for the Blackhawks and still like watching Shaman King. Im a huge fan of most anime because you can learn a lot from the characters, as they are usually extreme versions of a feeling or emotion. Take Goku from DBZ. He protects the earth to keep his friends safe, sounds like extreme loyalty, no? We can all learn the lessons that are tought through anime, but still smoke pot and play football. Kuhmbaya bitches.
We will face this monster of nature with our heads held high and no fear in our hearts!-Ryu/Rio the Dead ender. Shaman King

Guy 1: hey dude, wanna get stoned, watch some Shaman king, bleach, naruto, or sailor moon, then go watch the Hawks smash the Blues?

Guy 2: Fuck yeah. I love anime, sports, and weed!

Guy 3: Can I come too?

Guys 1 and 2: Hellz yeah!

Me: Yus! -raves-

The Asian equivalent of American cartoons, except have more depth and meaning and are not meant exclusively for 12-year-olds. There's many different genres of it, and can be meant for kids, all the way up to seniors. It's not a fucking cartoon.
*le me watching Bleach*

Dumbshit "friend": Dude, why are you watching cartoons??

Me: No...it's...anime.

Dumbshit "friend": So cartoons?

Me: THERE'S A GODDAMN DIFFERENCE YOU FUCKPUMP!

another word for cartoon that makes teenagers feel better about watching it
"omg i luuuuurve anime"
"oh, do you mean cartoons?"

A word used to refer to many different japanese cartoons. Often worshipped by teenagers who really need to grow up and quit watching their stupid cartoons. Additionally, some of the terms are used for perverted inside jokes that aren't funny and that nobody understands. Not quite as annoying as disney, but it's a close second.
Girl 1: Oh my god! I love anime! It's my life!

Girl 2: Hey, I've got an idea. Let's go get some boys and (insert japanese phrase here)!

Girl 1: (giggles) you're dirty. (looks over at boy) Hey, you care to (insert japanese phrase here)?

Boy: No thanks. I think I'm gay now.

Girl 1: Then you would probably like (insert japanese cartoon name here)!

Possibly the weirdest fucking thing ever. If you want to be weird read, draw or call yourself a Japanese name Anime style.
Crazy girl with plaid skirt and fishnets: Tehe guys ~.- I'm so0o changing my name to Linx. XD That's what happened in the newest version of Kumitata's Adventures!

To those haters, watch Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei, and clear your fail definitions.

Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei is a satirical take on Japanese society with deep sometimes subliminal messages...

Yes there are shots of Kaeru's pants which is a stab at the overly perverse hentai or borderline H.

Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei has no OVERLY BIG EYES, or RIDICULOUS COLORS, and does not feature tentacles or rape.
If you have watched Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei, you would agree that anime is completly different from half these definitions.

ALSO, the colorful hair is because all JAPANESE have BLACK hair, if two characters had the same hair style it would be impossible to tell the difference. They do not have the liberty of mutlicoloured hairstyles like Westerns do and seek to rectify by using abstract colours for CLEAR definition.
