So my friend is saying that all cartoons made in Japan are anime, and there is by definition no such thing as an American anime. I disagree. Am I right or is it him?

You're both wrong because you're both faggots. End of discussion.

He is an idiot.

The Boondocks is an example of this.

There's American cartoons based off of anime, but the word "anime" is Japanese and short for "animation."


So no.
America has cartoons.

At this point anime is considered a genre, true, originally it was as this Anon said >>100025085

However the meaning have evolved from that, its a style now.

I'm not, and I still think you're retarded.

Boondocks is produced and written in the U.S., it is not an anime. Whoever designed the show just happens to draw somewhat like the style.

All anime is made in Korea.

If you ask a Japanese person what "The Simpsons" is they'll say it's an "anime".
(it's also made by koreans)
