Probly should just be in the Anime thread...

like Kyou said, RWBY isnt considered anime, but anime-styled GCI animation (or something like that, cant remember what definition was). And while it can be considered anime, try mentioning it as one in anime-purists section. I just cba to start a fight over it.

Wow, really? It's an anime? I'm being completely serious here. I thought, despite me seeing something similar to the video thumbnails before, that RWBY was a pokemon game or spin-off or something like that. As in Pokemon Red White Black Yellow. I guess I could watch it, assuming it grabs my interest as a legitimate show and not for other reasons, which I won't delve into.

 

Also, I suppose "technically' it should be in the anime thread but are saying anime as in the animation style or of Japanese origin(a Japanese cartoon, ported over to the west e.g.)?

 

EDIT: Okay, well, black not blue. I thought it was blue.

In any case, let's get back on topic and stop worrying about the technicality of what may or not make a show an anime. I'm going to merge the topics to keep the forum clean, since i suppose RWBY can fall into the same subject. If meelis wants to discuss this with me, i'll leave a shadow topic in place, and feel free to PM me if you want to argue a case to keep the subjects separated.

 

Yang is my favorite by the way.

 

Edit: nevermind on the shadow topic. did it the wrong way for that. XD I'll just PM meelis.

Samurai Jack is definitely a western cartoon (especially since it was featured prominently on cartoon network and IIRC Nickelodeon) but Pokemon is anime. Wasn't Pokemon originally a Japanese show but it was dubbed over to American?

Yeah, Pokemon (and Digimon) are both Anime, Samurai Jack, Teen Titans, among others, are Western Cartoons.

Well Teen Titans I feel like its a hit and miss with it being anime, the only one that is drawn like an anime character and i mean a stereotypical look of one is Robin, dont get me wrong I like the show, but I feel like it is like Loonatics Unleashed it just doesnt fit in the superhero genre and it doesnt fit in the genre its meant to be in, its just a bit cowboy bebop-ish but only because that combined genres and did it well but those two just idk, the reason I thought Samurai Jack was because it does seem to be a bit of an anime, but it is western designed

 

Speaking of anime, I dont know if anyones seen the anime: Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad or not I know I did and it also was a manga series too, also if anyone here has seen Evangelion, you may like these pics I have

 

PS dont tell Misato I took her Alpine A310

Well, I hate to restrict tropes and styles of animation(mostly tropes but in this case, style of the animation) but I recall Teen Titans indeed had the whole anime-esque-face-style, like with the :D smiley emoticon. It's still more of a western cartoon than an anime, as far as "anime" goes in definition. At the same time, I still wonder if The Last Airbender is an anime. I'm pretty sure that's a western cartoon but it varies from what your average western cartoon animation style is.

well i know i hear people say Avatar: the last airbender and the legend of korra can be classified as both but they say its influenced by anime when its a western cartoon, same with teen titans but i feel like they should be in the category of both but its hard to really say i they belong or not

I know I personally wouldn't place them as anime.

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.
