Are these shows animes?

Postby peacefaerie » October 5th, 2009, 9:20 am

I was wondering about these two shows that I used to watch. One was a show called Totally Spies, and the other was called Magi Nation. I think that they might be animes, but I'm not completely sure. Does anyone know?

to get a better view of what is anime and what isnt check the credits of the show, if the original creator isn't japanese its not anime (hence the whole meaning, Anime= Animated cartoons from Japan)


which also means that Avatar isn't an anime!

There's been a run on American-made anime-like 'toons ever since CartoonNetwork proved there was a continuous market for anime on TV in this country...

Aside from the Original Creator being Japanese (or sometimes Korean), another way to tell the difference is that most American-made stuff is about muscle-ly Super Heroes of some type, and is usually required to have some sort of "educational" value--*Ugh!*

Real anime exists mostly for itself
