This is about cartoons and anime. I hate when people constantly flip out when other people call anime shows cartoons. Actually, did you know that in Japan, they also call shows like the Simpsons anime? And there's also CGI anime, too. And anime is the Japanese word for animation. Therefore, all cartoons are technically anime, but not all anime are cartoons.
So anyways, even though we use the term anime to distinguish Japanese animation (although I say Japanese anime and Western cartoons to distinguish them), that doesn't change the fact that it's just any animation at all. Some Japanese anime are cartoons, some are not. Now, can weeaboos quit flipping out over this kind of stuff?))
