    In Japan, the term does not specify an animation’s nation of origin or style; instead, it is used as a blanket term to refer to all forms of animation from around the world.[11][12] In English, dictionary sources define anime as “a Japanese style of motion-picture animation” or “a style of animation developed in Japan”.[13] Non-Japanese works that borrow stylization from anime is commonly referred to as “anime-influenced animation” but it is not unusual for a viewer who does not know the country of origin of such material to refer to it as simply “anime”. Some works are co-productions with non-Japanese companies, such as the Cartoon Network and Production I.G series IGPX or Ōban Star-Racers, which may or may not be considered anime by different viewers.

    In English, anime can be used as a common noun (“Do you watch anime?”) or as a suppletive adjective (“The anime Guyver is different from the movie Guyver”). It may also be used as a mass noun, as in “How much anime have you collected?”, though it is sometimes incorrectly pluralized as animes because of the Japanese language’s lack of grammatical number.[14]

    Just because a cartoon is not created in Japan, doesnt mean its not Anime. All forms of animation-style are is considered anime, so please don’t report non-Japanese cartoons as being “not anime.”
