message 18: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Lindsey (hannah_l) | 2 comments I watch a whole lot of random stuff... I watched Naruto, but it got kinda repetitive, so I just watch it if it comes on and I'm bored. It's not my favorite, but it's not my least favorite either.

I like Bleach, Death Note, Avatar, and some random things that have to do with vampires and dead people. :P

message 19: by Susannah (new)

Susannah (pheisty_heisty) VAMPIRES!!

message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

I was bored and needed to find a group, I think I'm going to be joining like 5 more groups.
Avatar is a cartoon like anime. If you look at all the posters it's written in Chinese or whatever to make you believe it's anime, but it's just Nickolodeon.

message 23: by Susannah (new)

Susannah (pheisty_heisty) it did?? it is cartoon

message 24: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Well, technically it's an American-made cartoon, which automatically makes it not anime, but on most every anime website you go to, Avatar there, therefore making it be considered an anime. Basically, it's TECHNICALLY not an anime, but is considered an anime by most people, because it's basically the same. It's just that it was created by a different country. That's the only difference from Avatar and an anime.

message 25: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay And anyone who hates Naruto is crazy!!! Naruto is amazing!! So is Bleach.

message 38: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay I like Death Note, Code Geass, Naruto, Bleach, Vampire Knight, Fullmetal Alchemist, and some cute shows like Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket. Although I like the manga better for Fruits Basket. Anyhow... why isn't Naruto airing!!?? *sob* Stupid cartoon network. :( I just wanna watch shippuden with my english voice actors because I love them.

message 39: by Susannah (new)

Susannah (pheisty_heisty) dido!

message 40: by Priscilla (new)

Priscilla VdL (dunnopris) hmmm...dont think avatar is anime...

message 41: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay It's not anime, but it's pretty much the same thing. The drawing style is actually quite different from anime, and for the most part, it's really not as in tense and adulty (that's not a word...) as most anime. However, as I said up there, most people just consider it anime anyway, because a lot of anime fans enjoy Avatar as well. If you go to justubs, a website of only English dubbed animes, you'll find Avatar on the list to the right, even though it's technically not.

message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah I agree and vampire knight is awesome

Fruit Roll Down [Vivienne] (animehplover) | 9 comments vampire knight is AMAZING zero and yuki forever yo...
i think avatar may be a mix
and besides,
you cant REALLY say the way they draw the carttons/anime determines wethers its anime or a catoon, because anime has A LOT of different styles of drawing, it just depends on the artist. so yeah... i just think its just a mix between both.

message 44: by Maura (new)

Maura The only way I can tell if something is close to anime is by the character's facial expressions. Like when they're angry.

message 45: by May (new)

May oh yeah. how it has the red square thingy!

message 46: by Maura (new)

Maura Yeah!! And when the get frustrated, a little tear drop goes down their forehead.

message 47: by May (new)

May lol. sweat.

message 48: by Maura (new)

Maura Whatever.

message 49: by Emma (new)

Emma (emmascout) For the original question.
It IS an anime, just, like a fake-anime. That's what I think it is. I may be wrong though. Probably am too.

message 50: by Anastacia (new)

Anastacia (ana3) | 2 comments i think it would count as an anime
