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-

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.

Japanese animation - very bad; the work of talented artists who are capable of vivid animation, which is somehow reduced to crap with a hackneyed plot that nobody wants to watch.
Adult Swim hosts the anime show Inuyasha. They should show Futurama twice a night instead.

(n). Genre of the sub-category "Cartoon" in which stylized characters have large hair, big eyes, and a Japanese flare.
Word derived from "animation"; anime is not completely animation, as are the cartoon shows not fully animated; (ie)the characters' mouths sometimes do not move although one hears dialoge (ie) a character running may not look as if moving, but rather have many legs against an unchanging background to ideocially signify motion
Fuck this amime shit! Classic cartoons like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Simpsons are what TRUE cartooning is all about!

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?
