Why is Tower of God considered an anime when it is adapted from a manhwa? If it is solely because a Japanese studio did it then why isn't the same logic applied to Cannon Busters? So basically anyone with money can just pay a studio to adapt their source material and it will be "anime"? Seems like a bad precedent we are setting. How does Japan feel about this?

Cannon busters is considered anime. Also japan doesn’t care, only the fussy weebs who care about their image do.

 No.33438

all that mass produced fiction released every week is so boring.

Neo Yokio is anime despite it being mostly western and total shit.
Same with Afro Samurai though it is less shit.
Also I have never heard of someone saying Cannon Busters wasn't anime.

this just seems as another mass hyped anime that i will stay away from. Last mass hyped anime i saw was Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and it was shit. Animation is good, sure, but the story is bland and the main character is really boring..

besides, if tower of god is an anime, what does it differ from Avatar the last airbender which people clearly state was not an anime. I know the answer to this, but just throw out the thought out there.. An anime is only an anime if its produced in japan.

Yeah it should be called cartoon ;-}

Sounds like you're onto something OP. You should start a change.org petition to remove TOG from anime listing sites.

I do know that the comic was/is one of the most popular manhwa I can think of so that is probably where a lot of hype is coming from.

What is "anime" ?
Is it made by Jap but financed by US? Then the 80's TRANSFOMERS count and so does the ones exclusive to Netflix.
Does it have to be made by Jap exclusively? Then most current anime don't count because the grunt-work (like in-between frames) is done by Chinese/S.Koreans.

squint your eyes until everything is blurry
question: does it look somewhat like anime
if yes: it's anime (for 99% of people)

The heads of every department have to japanese, in japanese companies, that live in and were raised in japan. Outsourcing grunt work to your ex-colony is different from having a person from a different culture in a major position.

>>35445
So it has to be made for Japan to be anime?

 No.37783

Anime is japanese animation. there is plenty of manga adapted from western novels. Maybe there should be another term for wholly japanese created works.

Manhwea and web toons are nearly always appealing to normies the art is always down badly in these comics as well and I dislike that they are being made into anime but most mass produced anime is lacking any substance anyway.

I would be more concerned about shitty CGI being used in anime OP.

 No.37784

words just get bastardized over time, any turn-based combat game could be called a jrpg, anything that looks like anime could be called anime, people will get what you're saying unless they are being pedantic
