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.

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!

Often sad examples of poor animation made for japanese preteens, that has a strong and curious appeal to sad american whites of all ages.
These americans who will often blast american entertainment will watch this reprehensible form of entertainment drawing from it some deepness, and inner meaning, even if the meaning of the anime is, look at funny catman dance to J-pop, while scared school kid runs! While this is something only a preschooler thinks is funny, an Otaku (or Japanese for faggot) will demand that you watch it again, or insist that you just didn't "Get it."
While often they are poorly colored coloring book still pictures where the only motion comes from camera movement, and Otaku (i.e. Faggot) will insist the animation is leagues better then american animation.
Otaku (Forementioned faggots) will try and make anyone who is not like them either A: give it another try, or B: reprimand you for not "Getting it." Even though they have clearly mistaken some japanese turd for art.
The saddest of all Otaku (Once again utter japhappy retarded white basement dwelling faggots) will download this stuff off of the internet years before it will air in america to buy them some Otaku (if I haven't driven the point home, they are brainless pretentious moron faggots) credit. So that when something finally does come out on DVD they can talk Otaku/Faggot shit about said show.
Those who don't have yellow skin, and follow this are more likely to A: be child molesters. B: Become a furry, or other sexual deviant or C: cry while masturbating to pictures of strawberry shortcake, or little girls. D: masturbate to unhealthy cartoons (i.e. not Betty Rubble or Velma from Scooby Doo, which it is perfectly safe to masturbate to and still be healthy)
Clerk at video store: Oh, the new tri-gun anime comes out this weekend!
Faggot/otaku: Yeah? that was cool... three years ago, when it came out in japan, because, I don't know if you could tell, though I have blonde hair and blue eyes, I am secretely japanese!

Faggot 1: Do you know what we should do?
Faggot 2: What?
Faggot 1: We should put on cat ears, and naruto headbands and hang out at the mall!
Faggot 2: Yeah, then everyone will know for sure we're cool!

The Japanese word for "animation". Anime is generally WAY over-rated, incredibly generic, and completely brainless. Anime was originally an animated instructional video by the Japanese to demonstrate that Japanese writers literally cannot put together a single concept without demons, vampires, giant robots, or high-powered fighters.

Humor in anime is literally 100% childish, slapstick garbage, including but not limited to falling over and twitching, bleeding from the nose, having a stupid facial expression, or secreting a giant sweat drop on your head. Note that 95% of these slapstick moments are a result of sexual perversion, typically inadvertantly squeezing GIGANTIC breasts (usually belonging to an animated 12 year old).

Luckily, anime fans need only watch a single episode of any genre, as doing so is actually equivalent to seeing every episode of every show in that genre. For example, watching a single episode of Love Hina is like watching all romance comedies, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL THE SAME THING.
Hey, did you see that anime? I didn't, because only retards watch that crap.

Japanese cartoons, same as most other cartoons save the horendous hyperbole in the hair, eyes, and generally make excessive use of bright lights. Often involves such FASCINATING INTELLECTUAL subjects as tentacle rape and people in school girl outfits...that are continuously raped by tentacles.
Most Japanese anime has a school girl in it who is vigorously raped by tentacles.

"anime: a vastly inferior form of animation adopted by pedophiles and sex offenders to simulate rape"
"anime: Speed lines and gigantic eyes mini skirts and long legs!"

The downfall of America's future.
How can children be the future when they're sitting infront of the T.V. and gazing in a stopour at seizurical colors and half-naked drawn characters?

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.
