This group has been formed to gather the people who enjoy Japanese anime and all of its facets, to salute the people from the land of the Rising Sun.

We do not want any ecchi or hentai images in the image gallery. Those that are posted will be removed. Also, take it easy in posting your entire collection of Naruto images. You should only share a few that you personally like. For the rest, people can always find them on their own. I recommend posting a link in your description (and every image should ideally contain a description).

Anime is Japanese cartoons. That's all there is to it.

What is hard to understand about that!?

So Spawn and the Boondocks are Anime to you.

Depends. Do you mean the Comic Book character or someone else? Because if so, according to Wikipedia there is in fact a manga spin-off called "Shadows of Spawn". As for Boondocks, nothing seems to indicate Japanese producers, so right now I'd say no.

Besides, let me give you an example as well: Iron Man. Obviously a comic book but there is also an anime of it produced by Madhouse.

I'm talking about the '90s self titled Show on HBO and the Currently Running Boondocks Both made by Studio Madhouse. Though Madhouse was not credited with Boondocks.

And What about Japanese productions that were made outside of Japan? Many Shows use Korean Animators, and Several CG Animated shows use outside studios.

Yeah, and? That's called outsourcing and is not exactly a new practice.

If you are talking about this:
It's a cartoon, thought and directed by an American. Again, outsourcing; and no it was not Madhouse who created it but one of their SK subsidiaries, which makes this an example of outsourcing outsourcing. IF it was made by Madhouse proper and they were credited with it and IF it was directed by a Japanese person, then the argument could be made.

Yes that one.

So anything that's outsourced is DQ'd from being an anime? So your willing to Take away anime status just because other people from other countries have worked on it?

SoraZ Jul 28 2014, 7:44pm replied:

No, I'm willing to take anime status away from cartoons because they were not created/thought up/directed by JAPANESE PEOPLE working IN JAPAN for JAPANESE FIRMS under JAPANESE LAW, unless they are created by firms by virtue of oursourcing who are working under contract with JAPANESE FIRMS who are contracted to create something. This is not the case for Boondocks because neither was Madhouse credited nor were they even contracted. They went straight for the SK subsidiary.

Or the TL;DR version, Japanese-made cartoons are called Anime.

So what I said Was correct, Spawn and the Boondocks are anime by your definition, along with any Show made by a subsidiary of A Japanese company. Including Korean Studios like DR Movie and Moi Animation(Owned by Studio Madhouse), Who both did the animation for the Avatar series. This is how Acura, an American company still counts as foreign, due to being and using part of Honda, a Japanese Company.

Country Execution, Never that truthful huh? Especially in a Globalized world. Though I'm waiting for your Associate, n5p29, as He seemed to get even saltier than you.

If you want salt, I can provide. And since you failed to read my post, no good sir, you are still incompetent: was Avatar created by a Japanese person? Was the cartoon directed by a Japanese person? What? Did you just say no to both? Hm, sounds like an American production to me, not a Japanese one.

I'm asking why do you think you can draw the line? If thei was ten years ago You'd be in the clear. But this is the Age of multiculturalism. Everything is being inspired or stolen from everything else. Why is there a need for a distinction. They don't even have this distinction in Japan, where ALL ANIMATION IS ANIME. So Anime being related to Japan only is a estern concept, like Canon.

Also You guys are acting like real jerks. Not even trying to make a point without Getting twelve different kinds of mad.
