    Quick and a noob question. What is anime all about? I mean I read about death note and what not, but how is it different from regular cartoons? Please don't bash me, just looking for a path to enter the anime world.

    Anime is just a cultural style of animation that originated & popular in Japan.

    Speaking from an artisitic POV, Anime has always had distinct and common design traits if you consider the sketching style and the physical design of the characters.

    Compared to western cartoon which rely more on physical humor and actions to convey their story, Anime is rooted strongly in human basic emotion.. which are often comically exaggerated as part of their story. The central characters are mostly young-teenaged.

    Joy , fear , sadness n embarrassment - a character will go through all emotion in a single scene and these are superbly portrayed by the facial expressions of the characters.

    Loyalty, betrayal , love & friendship are the most common themes you will find. Anime while being appealing to kids is often more adult oriented with the topics it explores like tragedy and some bit of comic perversion.

    Japanese video games are heavily influenced by Anime rely on the same style for story telling.

    Anime has many times crossed over (successfully) into western themes like fairy tales, Aristocracy & Classic Westerns.

    Its a very deep cultural phenomenon in Japan and well worth exploring, especially if you're grown up :)

    hence the suggestion, we have more than a few of the anime fans here, and Ill be honest, I never really looked into it, coz I never got a complete initiation into it. Would be great for future members.

    Fantastic,
    I recently finished avatar: the last air bender.
    It's a brilliant anime, it's more suitable for younger audience but still it is very funny and light along with some element of dark themes.
    It dwells a lot in hindu and Buddhist ideology of elements and life, importance of friendship, sticking to your principles.
    It is short and sweet, don't go on forever like most animes. I wholeheartedly recommend it
