So I heard I am an anime now.
And then mickey was a gliph.
Give him a Kenshiro face/
You were always an anime. Anime means fucking animation. Disney films have always been in the anime section in Japan.
In Japan they've always called cartoons anime.
disney is anime to them just as much as gainax is.
Will minnie now have large breasts?
Is this furry?
Actually yes, it is.
Fuck minnie. Daisy + XBAWKS TITS = FINE TOO
Oh god, don't ruin my childhood.
What >>10061700 said.
Fucking foreigners keep butchering the meaning of words.
It's dangerously cheesy.
OH NO! IT IS TERRIBLE WHEN THAT HAPPENS D`:
there goes my childhood
Just like how Kingdom hearts ruined video games for me, so it qwill happen for anime.... DAMN YOU DISNEY!
Cartoons are anime
Comics are manga
and lolicon is just the Japanese word for pedophile.
But well, that's Amerika for you.
Not what I'm saying. It's not the end of the world, but it is grating when they do that. It's like when Americans or other foreigners call Belgian comics "bande dessinée." Is the word correct? Of course. However, it is the French word for comic book. Why not use "comic book" to describe the likes of Asterix and Tintin? Why do you go at lengths to use these words when your language already has its own? I suppose some people want to distinguish themselves that badly. That kind of thinking, however, is no different from that of subcultures such as emo, goth or punk. Idiots.
But tezuka created "modern anime style" by imitating Mickey Mouse big eyes!
Disney invented anime!
remember without mickey mouse ozamu tetzuka cant draw atomic boy, thus the future of manga.ggggvgbvgv hbbbgjhhgbzx c
You're a pedophile.
You know what this news is for anime right?
ANIME IS A WORD FOR ANIMATION
CARTOONS ARE A TYPE OF ANIMATION
Most people have forgot that Animé is a french word lol
>Cartoon: a film made by photographing a series of cartoon drawings to give the illusion of movement when projected in rapid sequence.
>illusion of movement
sounds like black magic to me
But that isn't where the japanese word comes from.
ITT: We were all once furry for Mickey and friends
No. Japan > English > French > Latin > Some other shit.
>a sketch or drawing, usually humorous, as in a newspaper or periodical, symbolizing, satirizing, or caricaturing some action, subject, or person of popular interest.
post full plz
Well... I DID (and still do) beat off to a furry fetishist, if that means anything.
This is a demon box that projects images from another world!
A word can have several different meanings, smart guy.
Japan != language.
Cartoons are treated as childish in the western world. With exceptions like simpsons and the like, of course, but for the most part, they're childish. I'm no expert, but I'd say in general japanese cartoons are less childish then western ones. That's why we prefer to distinguish ourselves. And if we want a different word for japanese cartoons, the japanese word should do.
Comparing anime to cartoons is like comparing adult films to Barney and friends. Both are made the same way but are totally different entertainment gonras (spelling!).
What the fuck?
Cars are also made differently in many countries. Are you going to use different words for them too? You people are the only ones who do that stuff. French and Belgians call all comics "bande dessinée," the Japanese call all comics "manga," yet Americans are the only ones who will use different terms for what is essentially the same thing.
"genres" anon. It's spelled "genres". You made me spit up my drink the spelling was so off.
ahah o wow. Someone forgot the meaning of the worg "shounen"...
Unless by "gonras" you mean something completely different from what I expect, I agree fullheartedly.
>You people are the only ones who do that stuff.
Synonyms? I can't think of why anyone would have them either!
It's called elitism. People will do anything to attention whore themselves."look at me I said a foerign word I'm so wmart and unique unlike you!"
There are plenty of different words for different types of automobiles.
Yeah. I always feel really wmart and unique every time I say a foreign word. That's definitely our reason for calling them anime. (ridiculous argument tbh)
If I see a big enough difference between cars from a certain country and the other ones, I might just do it. Especially, if there's already loads of fans of those cars that already use the word. But I don't see that difference. I do, however see a few differences between Mickey Mouse and Death Note.
Also, not all anime fans are american.
They're not synonyms when people instead they're two different things.
Japs refer to American comics as "komikkusu" as in comics.
The Mickey Mouse-Death Note comparison is hardly relevant. They are two different works aimed at two different demographics. However, if I were to take a look at some older, more child-oriented superhero comics (they're more aimed at geeky men nowadays) and the likes of Dragon Ball or One Piece, then I would say it's not all that different. Both are lighthearted light reading, and have themes of good vs evil and heroism. Aside from a couple of cultural differences, they are essentially the same.
...Are you serious?
this thread needs more sageru!
God damnit Japan
Well, then. If that is true, I take back my focus on Americans and will have the Japanese share some of my minor annoyance.
>>In Japan they've always called cartoons anime.
In America anime is referred to as cartoons by non-waps
Walloon call comics "BD", Flemish "strip".
Which one is the girl?
Won't comment on the Flemish because I don't know.
You've got a point, I guess. (I'm talking about the present situation, not years ago, but fine)
I'd still say there are more grown up anime then there are western cartoons, though. Besides, there are many things you can find in anime you can't find in the west. (and vice versa, i suppose) There's the giant swords, the hectolitres of blood, the facial expressions, the fanservice, the really weird ideas, etc. While the graphic style obviously differs from one anime to another, it usually has a fairly different feel to it then western stuff does.
Hmmm I wonder what an animefied Gizmoduck would look like....
