As fun as this show was, is this really considered an anime?
Or in its case it was more of a homage to Western animation as a whole.
This is probably the most concise definition of anime I've ever seen. I should tell this to people who think those Japanese-inspired American cartoons are anime.
Anime is a very subjective term.
In my opinion this is a French animè inspired by Russian animation with arabic voice acting intended for the Guam market.
Are you fucking retarded? Anime is just animation produced in Japan.
Art style, writing, intended markets have nothing to do with it.
>Do nips call western animation anime,
They do actually, but at this point you might as well consider anime an English word borrowed from Japanese to refer specifically to Japanese cartoons.
I think regardless of the country Japan call it anime.
Some fans seem to think it's an English word use to define Japanese animation.
It's not, it's the Japanese word for animation.

Do you also believe a baseball cap qualifies as a sombrero? Because it means hat in Spanish, but in English we use it to refer to a very specific kind of hat.
Language changes based on usage.
Where were you when Gainax ruined Christmas?
It's missing that one track that plays sometimes with scanty and stockings, I think it played in the episode where they are introduced when they enter the school cafeteria and later in their underground place walking down the stairs
So take me to heaven or hell I don't care whereeeeee
One could argue whether anime is a designation of national oranges (like a basket of oranges saying "Product of Mexico", or a stylistic category. Either way, P&S has enough classically-styled anime scenes and thematic conventions to count.
