Hi /a/
Could you tell me what differentiates anime from cartoon?
Is it anime if the original story is from Japan?
Is it anime if the production was done in Japan?
Is it anime if the artwork is an anime style?
Is it a combination of all 3?

It's a cartoon if it's animated.
It's anime if it's a Japanese-language cartoon.

I was wondering what the differences were.
I wasn't implying that they were the same. I know that they are different.

>>100348038
So even if the story is from another country, as long as the original language of the show is Japanese, it is anime?
>>
Is /a/ being raided?

I've been checking in every now and then over the last 8 hours and it's /v/-level with the shit threads.
>>
>>100348085
No. I was just wondering what defined anime from cartoon and what the differences were from /a/'s point of view.

Anime is a shortening of the loanword "animation". The Japs use it to refer to all animation. We use it to refer to Japanese animation, which means it has the key creative staff based in Japan. Directing, writing, key animation, etc. This is the only factor.

It's not anime if it was conceived and directed by a westerner with the grunt animation being done in nipland like some American cartoons are. (Avatar)

It's not anime if it was made by foreigners to imitate a Japanese artstyle. (The Boondocks)

So what about something like Deltora quest (pic related).
The original story is from Australia in the form of books, but then it was made into a show by the Japanese.
>>
>>100348344
It's anime. Howl's Moving Castle and Tales from Earthsea were both adapted from western novels.

Oh I see.
I just remember posting some Deltora quest here a while ago and being told to go to /co/, then when I posted it there I was told to come to /a/.
But it's not a very well known series, so whenever I want to talk about it, my threads only ever get a few replies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime
Anime (アニメ) are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animation. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese, where this term references all animation, but in other languages, the term is defined as animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastic themes. Arguably, the stylization approach to the meaning may open up the possibility of anime produced in countries other than Japan.
>For simplicity, many Westerners strictly view anime as an animation product from Japan.

If it's made in japan/korea it's anime
If it's made anywhere else on earth then fuck off to >>>/co/ because that's where it belongs
>>
Anime is a type of cartoon.
>>
>>100349440
so The Simpsons are anime?
>>
>>100349157
>Wikipedia is always right, especially when it comes to legal definitions
>>
>>100349538
Was the simpsons originally made in japan?

If yes then it's anime
>>
>>100349609
no, but a lot of episodes are made by koreans
>>
>>100349627
Then it goes to /co/
>>

>>
What do the Japanese call western animation.

>legal definitions
I was pointing out that it's opinion based and there are two main opinions.
If it's animation made in Japan it's anime.
If it looks like anime it's anime.

Kuso.

The first and only Australian Anime series.

Even AKB48 was nice enough to sing the OP.

I remember wikipedia saying Kimi ga Nozomu Eien originated tsundere but then I started saying this and everyone told me "no, you're wrong, they existed before". Now I can't really trust wikipedia without doing my own research.

What the actual fuck, Deltora had an anime?
I remember reading that shit as a kid, one of the few book series I actually loved.
I'm gonna check the series, just for nostalgia's sake.

What the fuck, do you seriously believe every anime takes place in Japan ? A good number of them takes place in imaginary worlds or foreign countries.

One medium has a 99% demographics made up of children less than 12.
Other medium has a very broad range of demographics ranging from preschooler to teens to young adults to men to older gentlemen.

I'm pretty sure he means if for some reason say, an american company made and wrote something, but it was recorded in japanese first, would it be called anime? I don't see why this would happen, but that seems to be his point.

>>100349791
Unchi.

>>100348344
>>100348493
wait wait, are you fucking kidding me?
Deltora?
holy heavenly fuck, I read that saga long time ago when I was much younger
shit, it wasn't a great ride, but it was decent for the age recommended and I loved it back then

now, the books have been abandoned in my shelf for years and I would have never expected to hear about them again... so knowing an animated series has been made (even if it's only a few chapters) it's really surprising

I really don't expect good things of it, but I'm going to take a look, just for the old times

thank you, I guess
