The Japanese term for animation. And just because something's animated doesn't mean it's automatically targeted at children so they can become corrupted by it. American companies usually butcher the dubbed version so they can make the ones that weren't intended for kids all TV-Y rated. Most anime takes on more mature themes and sometimes sexual content for those people who are into that.
Stereotypical anime characters, usually the younger female ones, have large eyes (to portray innocence, I guess). But not all of them do. Sometimes they have crazy hair and crazy outfits and crazy actions. The voices are high because I guess Japanese people tend to have higher voices than Americans.
The people who watch anime aren't always those stereotypical geek/nerd/dork or whatever you wanna call them. Sometimes the people who do watch anime or read manga (Jap. comics) can get a little too into the culture, but hey, whatever.
