Hi, /a/ I'm really confused right now, is art style what makes an anime or is it the voices or the fact that it comes from japan? The reason I ask is I just got done watching avatar and and it was so anime-like I was just about searching for the jap-eng sub when I realized it was American made...

So you admit it's not anime, and then you make a thread about it here, an anime-only board? Why?

This is like watching an underage girl walk into a bar of gruff grizzled men

It has to be made in Japan to be anime.

Haven't seen that show in years, but Toph is bestgirl.

If it is an animation from Japan, it is anime. If not, it isn't.

Suki best girl.
Katara is better boner fuel, though.

It's the fact that it comes from Japan, basically.

Funnily enough, by now I can almost always tell whether something's an anime or a cartoon no matter what the art style is. I have no idea how.

She was too awful of a character. Avatar was all about Toph and Azula. Too bad Korra ended up sucking. M&B are such hacks they can even ruin a story with a delicious brown fit tomboy MC, let that sink in a moment.

Anime is Japanese animation produced in Japan (except for inbetweens) by the Japanese (except for inbetweens) for the Japanese.

Here's another question, are western cartoons becoming more anime stylized or is it just the western industry finding that people don't like classic western style as they used to?

Replace "anime" with "made in Japan"

>Hi, /a/ I'm really confused right now, is art style what makes a "made in Japan" or is it the voices or the fact that it comes from japan?

Neither, Avatar was a brief success that its creators managed to completely drive into the ground. It was conceived in the early 2000s so it was just riding on the anime craze back then, when Nick was desperate to get viewers back from CN.

Current /co/ material is a fucking joke, that's why I haven't been to the board in years. Most of it is Adventure Time style garbage.

>>100702570
I like to try to forget about most of the season the same way people like to forget about Darker than Black S2. There were still good parts though.

Toph was still perfect but she kind of became a background character.
>>
>>100701837
I agree, her character was shit. She was just better boner fuel.

Korra S2 was a bit of a letdown. The two episodes centralized on the first ever avatar was mesmerizing though, they should have based the series on him instead. Watching him literally trying to establish balance between the world was much better than Korra's teenage bullshit.

Anime is from Japan. Period.

There can be western made cartoons that copy the style, and they can be good even, but it's not anime.

It's not about just because it's not from Japan. Much of anime is founded on Japanese culture and tenancies which are naturally woven into storylines, just because the dudes who made it are from Japan, and its written for other dudes who are also from Japan. Western cartoons are coming from a different cultural standpoint and are written for a different audience.

It can easily be seen when a western cartoon will try to copy a Japanese theme or trope and it feels ridiculously out of place or forced.

>>
>>100703072
I agree I thought the show took a while to get going in season 1 and in season 2 I thought they should have learned from their mistakes, but that back-story of the first avatar was well done. My hope is that with the new "book" (Season) coming out with lin (Toph's daughter) as the focus it will be more back story focused maybe even having an episode or 2 that tells how republic city got founded,that would be great.

TLU had no Japanese studio responsible for its animation. LoK did though, but I don't think a single season being animated in Japan is enough to reclassify an American pig cartoon.
