look up any word, like kappa:
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!

Animation originating from Japan containing the best imaginary women possibly, badass guys, and beautiful music all in one package. Plenty of anime shows out there though not all of them are awesome as well not all of them suck. Not to be confused with hentai which is... porn.

a common term for japanese animation, usually based off of manga (japanese graphic novels). it often recieves hate here in the western world because some people havent really seen it or they think all animation is for children. usually, with the exception of studio bones, the animation itself is very lack-luster. something comon i've read here on urban dictionary is that its, "the legal way to jerk it to an 8 year old.", this is not true, while many anime's do actually have quite a bit of sexual humor, you cant call it that. however it has recieved much popularity here for the teenage demographic as well. also another thing is people known as weeaboo, people who get WAAAAAAAAAY over obsessive over anime, and otaku, the japanese term for a geek, or in america's case, people who are really into anime but dont exactly cross into weeaboo terratory, are shut ins with no life, again not true.
guy: hey lets go watch some cowboy bebop.

anime hater: yeah its the only one of those animes thats actually any good

The most retarded shit ever. The characters eyes are big and the women dress half naked and their boobs practically pop out of there tight usually school girl outfits. Retarded plots that are confusing and make daytime soap operas look like kindergarten math as far as understanding goes. The characters mouth are non-existent when talking, but when laughing become huge. Also everyone that watches it is lame and immature as hell. They talk in cutsey voices and make me want to bitch slap them. Aslo theres porno of it, which is fucking clown shoes since u can get real porno everywhere. Its gay shit.
anime is for retarded queers who fuck their mothers in the anus.

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-
