Do normalfags actually call it Chinese cartoons, anyone has any experience ?
>>
>>100901304
Yes. They do.
Most people don't know the difference between Chinese, Japanese and Korean, and assume they all speak the same language.
>>
They call it anime. They aren't that sheltered.
>>
>>100901611
This. The ones to call it chinese cartoons are really old people

This is pretty much the extent of most westerners knowledge of asia.
>>
>>100901304
Anime is Japanese animation, fucktard. Know the difference and stop being such a faggot
>>
When I was 5 they did.
>>
>>100901304
Well I know enough people who thought Samurai and Ninjas were Chinese things, so probably
>>
Lots of people do it ironically. Hell, even in my country they refer to them as the equivalent of "Chinese cartoons" when they know they come from japan.
>>
>>100901695
I call them chinese cartoons to be ironic and I chuckle when normies correct me.
>>
It's Japanimation for most people.
>>
>>100902899
This.
>>
>>100901304
Yes.

I've always hated "chinese cartoons" term, always considering it /b/-tier shitflinging.
Then my /v/ermin roommate asked whether I can understand those Chinese writings.

Nice animu thread as always OP.

Epic.

>>100901304
Saya a qt. How do you guys like your Oumi cooked?
>>
>>100901304
Yes all the time. Doesn't matter what part of Asia it comes from I've had people call them "Chinese cartoons".
>>
>>100901304
They call it Japanimation.
>>
In Germany, they call it Animäs/Animes.
>>
cartone animato giapponese

Yes, I'm that old and still call it that
>>
They call it anime but they pronounce it weird on purpose to pretend they don't know what they're talking about.
>>
I was watching Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei when my ~7 year old nephew walked in and started watching it with me. After about 30 seconds he asked "Why are you watching Chinese cartoons?".

If only I had the chance to record it.
>>
Normalfag friends.

They say "cartoons." Sometimes "animay."

"chinese cartoons" is an invention of ironic board culture (i.e. shitposting)
>>
>>100901371
There is no difference. They're all soulless gooks that only live to make my cell phones and sneakers.
>>
>>100910721
I had a coworker do this, he smoked weed and fancied himself a "gangster" since he was a gigantic fucking wigger.
He saw an anime related pin I have and said, oh you like those "hentays"?
He played WoW so I know he knew and was just being a faggot.
>>
I was watching FMA Brotherhood a few years back when it was airing and I lived with my uncle, he came in and saw me and said 'Hey, is that that Japanimation? Pretty cool.'

That's the worst I've ever heard.
>>
>>100911535
You're uncle was being nice and trying to sound okay with his nephew's weird hobbies. You're lucky he didn't beat the shit out of you.
>>
>>100907571
Do people still use that word? I thought it died with the pretentious twits back in the 90s.
>>
>>100910634
That's literally what "anime" means
