    Huh isn't this an anime thread? I didnt know you could talk about cartoons? Transfomers in either case isn't an anime, i was big into Transformers G1 i have the box sets lol. The Headmasters series is fucked up, the english sub version isn't even translated correct its called the "Singapore dubs" and was aired only in Asia at random times in the early 90s. I heard there is a box set of Headmaster series i might look it up but the "Singapore dubs" are pretty infamous among fans.

    Im not big into anime but ive decided to check out some stuff. Akira is first on my list as it was pretty influential in exposing anime over here plus its good for it being mostly at night which was hard to do or something. Yeah so ima check out Initial D an anime about drifting and racing (my mates saw it thought id give it a go to since i like some of the cars in it), Cowboy Bebop as ive always wanted to see that after seeing a little of it ages ago.

    I dont like all that uber otaku shit or gundam, i like watching films and series because they are good not because they are anime but there are some really good anime out there its just finding what i like. Probably be best avoiding Hellsing, might not be for me.

    Ive saw most of Dragon Ball Z and all of the Funimation dub of Dragonball which was excellent but it dragged on at parts especially the Red Ribbon army sections, the best parts are the tournaments. Nothing special just thought id not that id seen it.

    Recently saw Only Yesterday which has English subtitles and Grave of the Firefiles which has an English dub but i saw the subtitle version; both are Studio Ghibli films.

    Sorry, but gotta make this point clear since I guess the first 34 words didn't..


    The definition of the word Animation is the movement of ALL 2d/3d objects..

    It's not the exact definition, but it's close to the point without coping..


    Even if it wasn't made in the "east" it's still considered anime. MADtv shorts are anime of the Western sorts..


    So, when I state the first sentence of the OP as..

    I mean, if you even look at the "HISTORY" of anime.. It talks about Snow White, via Walt his self...

    Pics or it didn't happen!

    :nutkick:


    The bottom line... Before you state that a cartoon isn't a form of Anime... Learn what the meaning of the words Anime and Animation is... All the old Walt Disney is considered as Anime... Hell, Toy Story is anime... Cars.... It's just now that The Western (America) has gotten into the flow of anime, there is now really no "japan" is the only thing that is called "anime"...

    Right on the mark.. We now really have to look at everything as Eastern/Western flow..

    Walt helped develop the form of Animation. It wasn't for him and a few names (I can't spell them via Japanese) that really made what we call Anime.. It's just threw out the years the two parts of the world developed differently.. But, in a nut shell.. Anime is cartoon, as Cartoon is Anime..

    Just because anime comes from the word animation doesn't mean its the same thing, anime is a certain type or style of animation mostly from Japan certainly historically. Anime is just another form of animation it doesn't encompass all types of animation.

    I wouldn't exactly go oh there is that inspector gadget anime, its a cartoon. Neither would i say Finding Nemo was an anime film.

    You say Snow White was mentioned but all i can infer from that was Japanese took and experimented with different western techniques.

    Your pretty pedantic about the situation even though im guessing you knew what i meant.

    EDIT: Transformers was a Japanese toy line but Hasbro do the the international marketing of the toys and created the original series, the last series Transformers Animated was drawn/made whatever it was done in Japan. I don't watch the modern series of Transformers its a bit child centric and has no nostalgia value or interest for me.

    I haven't seen a lot of "anime" but mostly Studio Ghibli; Grave of the Fireflys, Spirited Away and Only Yesterday. Ive heard of 5 centimeters per second and seen a clip but i haven't watched it yet.

    Im pretty new to this, ive only see some random stuff on tv at night and some popular stuff like Spirited Away.

    Ive heard of other stuff like Ghost in the Shell and that but its just really popular or well known stuff. Ive also got the street fighter collection which has SF2, Alpha and Generations also SF round one fight which is a comic but its animated kind of hard to explain really.

    EDIT: Right now im watching a really dodgy dub of Akira but its said to be the original english dub which is supposed to be better than the newer english dub, if the newer dub is worse it must be terrible! The quality isnt that great either but i get to see it so its okay.

    But, you can't seem to comprehend the factor of the first line in this thread.. It's a place to talk about ALL things Animated.

    Snow White was an influence to what is now. To where you can Exosquad took Japanese anime and made it American...

    You come in here and post something like that, what do you think would happen? We all bash one another over what we do and don't like via anime.. But, going out like that.. The first line says it's a free for all..

    I have a list made myself for people new to anime, it consist mostly of quality titles or popular ones, it is worth taking a look...
    http://www.animwu.info/plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?7202
    I have updated the list a little today with 3 new titles under horror\suspense category by including Bakemonogatari, Madoka and shiki...
    I should update it further with some new comedies and romances maybe, also i can take suggestions on anime to include on the list...

    Edit: site is down, i wrote the update, but im unable to submit it until site comes back, bu i leave the link here nonetheless, so check it out latter...
    THRiLL KiLL and KieranD say thanks.

    All im doing is explaining my posts. So okay fair point the title does say "animation" but a simple quick word was suffice.
    Originally i was saying i have never ever heard of Transformers being called an anime and that i didn't think it was an anime. If you re-read, i actually posted "Huh isn't this an anime thread? I didnt know you could talk about cartoons? Transfomers in either case isn't an anime" note the question marks meaning i didn't know (i want clear on the matter), i never said you couldn't talk about cartoons. You then proceeded to try explain to me what anime actually was, 2 reasons as mentioned already as to why because i didn't know if discussion on cartoons was allowed or to try explain Transformers probably was a type of anime. I also tried to explain in hindsight badly that anime isn't just animation its a certain style of animation.

    Also when i said anime doesn't encompass all types of animation i meant its just one style of many, its not really an interchangeable term for all animation that's why i gave the sarcastic example of inspector gadget which you wouldn't normally associate being an anime. Yes i realise the word comes from "animēshon" but its synonymous with a certain style.

    I don't mind being corrected and i don't have a problem here, i also do not have anything else to say about the matter.

    My thing is this and will all ways be this.. People on this forum seem to forget the factor of reading.. From that, you were the example.. Do I have "hate" over what you said, or who you are.. No.. I just can't see how if a person didn't read a thread, I know 311 pages is crazy... But, op goes with it...

    Kieran, I'm all for everything you have said in the posts.. all after that first line... and posts after. It's just the factor that op states something and people just forget to read that op before words are said..


    Now that we have our string of things.. Let's get this back going..


    I suggest going over to orb kieran and checking stuff out.. Helps you a lot there.
    KieranD says thanks.
