Do normalfags actually call it Chinese cartoons, anyone has any experience ?
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.
This. The ones to call it chinese cartoons are really old people
This is pretty much the extent of most westerners knowledge of asia.
Anime is Japanese animation, fucktard. Know the difference and stop being such a faggot
When I was 5 they did.
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.
I call them chinese cartoons to be ironic and I chuckle when normies correct me.
It's Japanimation for most people.
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.
Saya a qt. How do you guys like your Oumi cooked?
Yes all the time. Doesn't matter what part of Asia it comes from I've had people call them "Chinese cartoons".
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.
They say "cartoons." Sometimes "animay."
"chinese cartoons" is an invention of ironic board culture (i.e. shitposting)
There is no difference. They're all soulless gooks that only live to make my cell phones and sneakers.
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.
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.
Do people still use that word? I thought it died with the pretentious twits back in the 90s.
That's literally what "anime" means
