    Cartoon:
    "a film using animation techniques to photograph a sequence of drawings rather than real people or objects."

    Anime:
    "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation, characterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sexuality."

    Anime is a cartoon. But not all cartoons are considered anime, if you are using the word outside of Japan.

    You can't be this big of a weeb, seriously, to disregard the fact that ANIME IS THE WORD JAPANESE USE TO REFER TO CARTOONS, EVEN WESTERN ONES.

    It is like saying that allah does not mean god despite allah being the word that literally translates to "god" in its original culture. You can't be this stupid.

    Don't try to be more Japanese than THE Japanese. It just makes you look like an idiot.

    Cartoon is possibly animated, is not definitely animated. Cartoon is a drawing style which does not directly stand for the word Animation, see Animated Cartoon. Anime, by pronounce in Japanese with the loan-word "アニメーション", the first 3 words are the abbreviation of Animation which has been using widely in Japan. Anime stands for, 1. Abbreviation of Animation to Japanese, 2. An unique animation style developed and used by Japanese or so styled animation.

    Unaware of the fact to act rude can be see as an insult to an art style. Remember, styles make art different.

    Animated Cartoon is an animation.
    Anime is an animation.

    Cartoon is a drawing style.
    Animated cartoon is a style of animation.

    Anime have many drawing styles, See also "アニメ化( Animated )" and "オリジナルアニメ( Original Anime )".
    Anime are many styles of animation created and animation made by Japanese in which case is used outside of Japan.

    You are right that anime has to be animated, while cartoon doesn't. What does that make anime?

    An animated cartoon.

    A lot of people say that anime looks different than "cartoons" but it's retarded to define anime by its style because everything ranging from bad 3D cgi berserk to beautifully drawn ghibli films to cookie cutter ecchi trash anime is all anime despite looking completely different. As you said there are many styles.

    I mean panty and stocking is a fucking anime and it looks like something off cartoon network.

    I just hate it when people give anime special treatment to try to turn it into something it really isn't.

    Just like JPop or JRock aren't NOT pop or NOT rock, anime is not a NOT cartoon. It is an animated cartoon made by the Japanese, and that's fucking it, just like JRock and JPop are simply genres/types of pop and rock music, created by Japanese artists.

    Yes, i see you do have your opinion.
    Definition of an art style, i see it can only be half right and half wrong.
    Most likely we can treat a drawing(painting) art to either Realism or Abstraction, but in fact is not, there can be something between two of them.

    E.g. Surrealism is something likely to based on pure imagination, however nobody can really imagine an object without memories from reality.
    Cubism seems to paint to a general shape in cube, and many other styles can be found
    Realistic or not?


    The style is neither Realistic nor Abstraction and so must be Cartoon, not necessarily.
    A different branch can have it's own name as much as like many styles in painting art.
    Since they share similarity, it is possible to call Anime, Japanese Animated Cartoon not that like American Animated Cartoon.
    In other words, people can also call Surrealism and cubism are realities not that real. Vagueness, while a grand community using more different styles, then a name just comes, Anime.

    Oh, and yes, Panty and Stocking is quite old-school cartoony most of the time.
