There's certainly nothing wrong with them, but you really can't call them anime since they are not made in Japan. The closest to that you can get is the category of "anime-inspired" under which Avatar: The Last Airbender immediately comes to mind.

Name a few then. Can't think of any....at all.
And Avatar IS American. It's inspired by Chinese mythology and I believe they got some Korean guys to help them with the show and the Martial Arts and such.

I don't know about that really. Outside Japan I though those are called "comics". There is a difference between manga and comics its true, but I don't think a work of manga/anime is universally recognized as that unless it is from Japan.

i personally don't care if it called anime or cartoon i like what i like. Anime- a style of animation originating in Japan that is characterized by stark colorful graphics depicting vibrant characters in action-filled plots often with fantastic or futuristic themes which means if its called anime it has to be made in japan.

so their can't be american anime.

Definition of ANIMATED CARTOON

: a motion picture that is made from a series of drawings, computer graphics, or photographs of inanimate objects (as puppets) and that simulates movement by slight progressive changes in each frame

so you can say anime is an animated cartoon but you can't say any cartoon is anime because it would have to be an animated cartoon from japan to be an anime.

" Anime- a style of animation originating in Japan that is characterized by stark colorful graphics depicting vibrant characters in action- filled plots often with fantastic or futuristic themes" this is a pretty terrible definition of anime.

@sickVisionz: i know but its a kind of general definition but the point i was really trying to get at was the first part- " Anime- a style of animation originating in Japan" i was just trying to say that if its an anime it has to come from japan.
