'Anime' a Japanese word. Although the direct translation is derived from 'Animation' or 'Cartoon', the Japanese anime is very different to the American, European and most other countries cartoons. While cartoons from other countries are generally for ages

4-9, anime in Japan can be anything between 4-11 to 12/13-up. While some children's (4-11) anime is a lot like the cartoons in other countries, there are also very adult anime's (12/13-up), which is very different. Usually the more adult anime's has a thicker more interesting plot, violence, character death and occasionally swearing. A lot of people think that anime has a lot of sexual innuendo's and or scenes, but really there aren't that many, there is just a big fuss about it when people hear about it. It seems that Japanese children are used to violent and or sexual references on TV than children in the UK (Not meant in a racist way, I just read about it. Please leave a comment if you were offended in anyway).

People generally have mixed feelings about anime, they might watch it and enjoy it, but be afraid of their friend's finding out and thinking they were watching Spongebob Square-pants. Although anime has become about ten times more popular across the UK and America in recent years than ever before, it is still unheard of to 8 in 10 people.

Another version of anime is 'Manga' which is basically just a comic version of anime.
Naruto, Attack on Titan, Death Note, Fulmetal Alchemist and Fairy Tail are some of my favourite anime's.

The Japanese artists who draw anime females seem to have a serious cat fetish. Seriously, just look at the female faces. Don't they look catlike? With the small noses, huge mouths, and big watery, cute, hypnotic eyes. Not that it matters though, since the babes have big, bouncing, perfect tits and sexy, curvacious asses to go with the faces, and cats are cool. God I wanna get me one of those girls to make my dick very happy :^))
Anime babes are fuckably HOT, too bad the male characters just don't know what they're missing by NOT fucking them already.

Annyoing form of animation that people who wear clip-on fox tails on their pants always talk about and never shut up about-no matter how uninterested their victim clearly is
Alexa in my English class was wearing a clip on fox tail on her jeans while talking about Anime

Caroline wouldn't stop talking about Pokemon even though nobody cared about Pikachu and Weedle

I regrettably watched Sailor Moon when I was 5 not knowing it was Anime

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.

Often sad examples of poor animation made for japanese preteens, that has a strong and curious appeal to sad american whites of all ages.
These americans who will often blast american entertainment will watch this reprehensible form of entertainment drawing from it some deepness, and inner meaning, even if the meaning of the anime is, look at funny catman dance to J-pop, while scared school kid runs! While this is something only a preschooler thinks is funny, an Otaku (or Japanese for faggot) will demand that you watch it again, or insist that you just didn't "Get it."
While often they are poorly colored coloring book still pictures where the only motion comes from camera movement, and Otaku (i.e. Faggot) will insist the animation is leagues better then american animation.
Otaku (Forementioned faggots) will try and make anyone who is not like them either A: give it another try, or B: reprimand you for not "Getting it." Even though they have clearly mistaken some japanese turd for art.
The saddest of all Otaku (Once again utter japhappy retarded white basement dwelling faggots) will download this stuff off of the internet years before it will air in america to buy them some Otaku (if I haven't driven the point home, they are brainless pretentious moron faggots) credit. So that when something finally does come out on DVD they can talk Otaku/Faggot shit about said show.
Those who don't have yellow skin, and follow this are more likely to A: be child molesters. B: Become a furry, or other sexual deviant or C: cry while masturbating to pictures of strawberry shortcake, or little girls. D: masturbate to unhealthy cartoons (i.e. not Betty Rubble or Velma from Scooby Doo, which it is perfectly safe to masturbate to and still be healthy)
Clerk at video store: Oh, the new tri-gun anime comes out this weekend!
Faggot/otaku: Yeah? that was cool... three years ago, when it came out in japan, because, I don't know if you could tell, though I have blonde hair and blue eyes, I am secretely japanese!

Faggot 1: Do you know what we should do?
Faggot 2: What?
Faggot 1: We should put on cat ears, and naruto headbands and hang out at the mall!
Faggot 2: Yeah, then everyone will know for sure we're cool!
