noun: a style of animation that originated and is still heavily centered in Japan.

The word 'anime' is based on the original japanese pronunciation of the american word 'animation.'

The stereotype of the anime style are characters with proportionally large eyes and hair styles and colors that are very colorful and exotic. The plots range from very immature (kiddy stuff), through teenage level, to mature (violence, content, thick plot). The classification of 'hentai' is given to animes of a stong sexual nature.

Although over 95% of anime has nothing perverted about it, most closed-minded idiots think anime is always a form of pronography.
Although most people stop watching 'cartoons' in their early teens, there are 'animes' for all age groups.

Anime is the thing all of us degenera- ascendants watch on a secondly basis. It is made in the planet Japan and has been around for decades. It is a popular cure for depression, along with memes and gallons of LSD. Popular anime includes: Dragon Ball Z (frieza is cooler than cell lol), Sword Art Online (ban this), My Hero Academia and it's extremely long episodes and many other shi- amazing shows! Also there's hentai, but we don't talk about here kids. There are many different fans of it, such as weebs, otakus and weaboos a.k.a me. Genres mainly consist of Shounen (fighting), Magic, School Girls and Idol Groups. Also there are lots of alternate universe ones but they are bad so ok. Thank you for reading and remember to make blood pink or you want high ratings on your shows! (danganronpa why) If you wanted to read up what manga is, go to your nearest comic con.
A massive weeb: lol did you watch the English version of konosuba?! If you didn't I'll break your left arm? (Nani?)
Me: sorry but I have good taste in anime... go watch your hentai.

It sems to me like everyone here seems intent on telling us it is not porn; which I find quite suspiscious. I've never know anyone one to just asume it was porn.
person1 "Are you watching anime"
person2(urban dictionary user) "it's not porn I swear."
person1 "I didn't say anything about that"
person2 "Oh yeah... NOT PORN"

1. Japanese animation.

2. Yet another thing that americans managed to completely fuck up, resulting in poor translations, unnecessary censorship, horrible dubbing, and people who don't know any better hating Japan for it.
Cartoon Network and 4Kids are mostly responsible for the godawful anime that plays in the US.
