Tower of God is the anime I'm most looking forward to, besides maybe AoT last season. And Noblesse should be perfect for the DBZ crowd, but maybe I'm mistaken.

And yet by either definition you dont have to be mexican to make a sombrero.

Likewise by either definition of anime/manga you use you dont have to be Japanese to make one.

The English definition of sombrero isn't "hat made in Mexico". The English definition of anime is "cartoon made in Japan".

Stop using false equivalencies.

If it's not made by Japanese people, it's not anime or manga.

This.

Avatar is a fantastic piece of animation. It isn't an anime though. It's a cartoon.


Agreed, Avatar is not an anime its a cartoon BUT not because it wasnt made by Japanese people.

I guess the real question is what makes an anime different from a cartoon.

Because avatar was heavily influenced by anime iirc.

It's easy to tell what's supposed to be a manga compared to a book/comic/graphic novel. Anime and cartoon...eh.


Anime is like pornography in that way. You cant define it but you know it when you see it. And you dont have to be Japanese to make it.

No I would agree here, Avatar's style is more western.

No its not. Its animation associated with Japan. It doesnt have to be made in Japan. Just like the english word for Sombrero is a hat associated with Mexicans but you dont have to be mexican to make one.

Anime is just the japanese word for cartoon. Or so I've heard.

What does this entail? Elaborate.

What's Avatar: The Last Airbender, for example?
