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.

Japanese animation. The term applies to many different forms of Japanese animation, not just the kind with over-proportioned eyes and heads, exaggerated features, and revealing clothing.
This term sometimes refers to non-Japanese animation using similar styles.

Anime is NOT:
Japanese animated porn: See definition on hentai.
Only for nerds/geeks: Would you say all cartoons are for nerds/geeks?
Strongly masculine/feminine: Some are masculine, like Fullmetal Alchemist, and some are feminine, like Princess Ai.
Afro Samurai, Ayakashi, Black Cat, Cardcaptor Sakura, D. Gray-man, Fullmetal Alchemist, Hanasaku Iroha, Nana, Naruto, Princess Ai, Yu-Gi-Oh

List of notable anime shows.

A stuck up type of Cartoon that thinks it's better because it is Japanese.

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.

1. A style of animation that originated in Japan, with a large fanbase around the world. Target audience can range from children to adults.
2. A great form of entertainment with a very wide variety of interests, ranging from sports to action to romance. Can be separated into different categories, most popular being shounen and shojo. Shounen being anime more action-oriented targeting boys, and shojo more romance-oriented targeting girls.
3. Not always hentai.
Person 1: I'm going to go watch some anime!
Idiot: Ew! Isn't that hentai?
Person 2: I love anime!

A Japanese Cartoon. The STEREOTYPICAL anime usually follows this formula

~Bland male protagonist that makes everyone else in the anime look amazing
~Add a bubbly cute female character that is always happy/acts like a little kid
~Add a brooding character that believes everything is stupid
~Add a villain or two to add tension
~Bland male protagonist develops a relationship with a female that has a colorful personality
~Ending, everything turns out for the best usually

Stereotypical Character
~Big hair that is wildly colorful (think neon green or plum purple)
~Eccentric outfit
~Big Ass Eyes
~Giant boobs (for the ladies)
~Four different kinds of personality's: Bubbly, Brooding, Angst-y, or Delightfully kind hearted

Honestly, if your looking anime on the internet.... I would just watch a few episodes of a couple of different animes (on netflix or hulu) to see if anime is something you would enjoy. Careful though! Because it can be addictive
anime, xxxHolic, Samurai Champloo, Naruto, Fruits Basket, and so much more!
