I mean I agree, but I think Cabbage Salesmen gets a pass because of how iconic he is

I don't see how being iconic is relevant though?

I agree counting western cartoons shouldn't be allowed but avatar was made in an anime-like style so it's a different ball game so I get where people are coming from.

anime-like style so "actually good"? i mean the definition of the word literally means japan-produced >_>;

 

I mean look at anime like Crayon Shin-Chan - im sure some western cartoons would fit that mold well; and its not like 'mature' cartoons are a new thing either

since there are few points in the rules that make me question this

Can I nominate a character from an anime movie or does  it need to be an anime series?

anime-style meaning influenced by the better known japanese cartoons. Don't take it so literally. you say "actually good" like western cartoons can't be well drawn because it's not from japan.

ps the dictionary defines anime as the style created in japan. logically, a show following that style such as avatar or code lyoko should count as an anime, even if the country of origin is not japan.

as a comparison, the haiku is a style of poetry made in japan but if i write a haiku in america it is still a haiku

 

pps im just trying to rustle some people

I think even the "well known" anime have such a wide array of art styles that its hard to just say well x series produced not in Japan = anime. I think making the definition something like being Japanese primarily through production, language, or intended audience is a pretty good barrier because you can't just say full/limited because it would exclude things like Akira.

my contention is that the only stylistic quality that makes avatar anime-esque is 'has a myth arc' and 'is animated well' and 'chosen one tropes' - i think that's too broad to be 'this is def anime'
