is avatar the last airbender considered anime

Is avatar the last airbender considered anime? The series seems like the setting is Japan. And there is animated characters. There are also Japanese writting. But is it really anime?

In the Japanese meaning of it yes because anime is pretty much referred as any type of animation, but in the English meaning of anime no.

No. Anime (the English word) is animation from Japan. To be an anime, it has to be an animated work, and must originate from Japan. Avatar Last Airbender fails the second requirement, thus is not an anime.

Do note that under the definition of anime (アニメ, the Japanese word), Avatar would be an anime, so would Disney stuff, and just about anything that is animated.

I agree with Random32. An Anime is only considered an anime if it it of course animated and originates from Japan. Avatar, in other words, is not an anime. It is a cartoon.

Anime- Japanese Animation
Cartoon- American Animation

Closing the thread. It's a pointless question that has been asked a million times before.
