anime

Anime (pronounced AH-nee-may ) is a term for a style of Japanese comic book and video cartoon animation in which the main characters have large doe-like eyes. Many Web sites are devoted to anime. Anime is the prevalent style in Japanese comic books or manga . In Japan, the comic book is a popular form of entertainment for adults as well as for younger audiences. Story lines are often very sophisticated and complex and extend into episodic series. Typical anime themes or genres include Ninja and other martial arts; the supernatural or horror story; the romance; and science fiction including robots and space ships. Foils for the main characters, including robots, monsters, or just plain bad people, often lack the doe-eyed quality.

Variations of anime called hentai and ecchai are sexually-oriented. Doujinshi is the term for "autonomous comics," or comics written and distributed by independent and often amateur devotees of anime.

please update this definition. it is incorrect in several maters. the first off anime only covers the animation side of things. the comics are called manga. also you only cover the most stereotypical genres of anime. the age and lack of knowledge( or interest) of the post shows as you seem to only mimic the countless other incorrect definitions found scattered on the internet.

The definitions for cartoons and anime art wise are different. Hence the reason why you look up cartoons you get cartoons and when you look up anime you get anime. Anime is it’s own style of drawing just as cartoons are their own style as well.
