Yea. But guess what's next to it?


Animation gets separated because it's a different medium than "movies", which has some overlapping genres. Likewise, Video Games may have similar genres as well - but - the nature of that medium needs its own set of genres, that does not apply to movies and animation. So, having said. The terms "genre" and "medium" -- these two ideas overlap each other like a wire mesh.

Nevertheless, I do not advocate grouping up all animation in a disorganized fashion: like mixing up Spongebob in the "anime" category.
