Um, why not? Anime and cartoons ARE the same thing. Even in japan, they refer to american cartoons as anime.

and they even call comics manga, but calling anime cartoons would mean that cartoons are in the same level as anime

Quote from: Lum-chan
Secondly, Japanese manga and anime come in all types, for all sorts of people. Unlike the U.S., which generally seems to believe that "comics are for kids," Japanese manga-ka (manga writers) write for everyone from innocent young children to perverted sex-starved men. But even the kiddie stuff tends not to be as simple-minded as the American versions.

theres a huge difference

Exactly. Most people will be mad at you if you call them cartoons instead of animes.

I'd say cartoons could be called animes, but not the other way around. (Cartoons are still animated, right?)

I get mad if someone call Cartoon to Anime. That's the Otaku way, I guess.

But what happens to Otaku when they try and break the kneecaps of someone who could kill another man without flinching, and usually doesn't go out in public without an instrument of some sort that can be used to do so?

Personally, I could care less what Otaku whine about (and we all know that's all they're really capable of anyway), anime are cartoons. Whether cartoons are anime... well, to us english speakers it's debatable and I'll leave it at that, though to japanese... they are.


Non-japanese otaku are weird about things anyway. Though really, japanese otaku are worse.

Offtopic: Tsk,tsk,tsk,One question,Was this topic made for discussing the Otaku Code about how to call animes? I dont think so

Last time i checked,this was about when we saw UY the first time,dat moment that would help establish our love for this wonderful saga,and not the start of World War IV in the uy forum

Lets establish some things,shall we?

1.-No need to offend otakus,sidzero,you may say the truth in some instances,but a degree of truth doesnt make us into society judges.Just take it easy,amigo

2.-No need to over-react,my brothers-in-lum (you know who ya are),just because someone called cartoons to anime.There are people that will never learn (as Mills23) its meaningful value,yet there are people as Giovanni,who truly like the series and are still learning.Besides,where are you gonna get bullets to kneecap people?,bullets price has gone too expensive,y`know

3.-Remain On-Topic and if ya feel like kicking each other ass,just go to the nightmare battle,it is better a faux (fake) slugfest than an idealistic crusade that would just divide the forum members

Thanks for yer attention,have a nice day  :)

Back to the main topic

I believe I was 19 at the time.I was in a shop with my girlfriend deciding on our next purchase when she picked up UY:movie 1. I admit I had my doubts about it, but she wanted it so we got it.

I've been a fan ever since  :+

Well, I've forced myself to accept that "anime" could mean "japanese cartoon".

In italian "anime" mean "souls"

Maybe it's me, but Ive never seen an anime/manga shop...

Sure I've seen some DVDs on sale, but it's those too popular series, and they're usually dubbed...

I haven't even seen any specifically anime and manga stores here in the states. Mostly manga is found in your local chain book store or comic shop, and anime in your local chain video store (and most chain music stores, cause they also sell movies these days).
