So i've seen all the leaked stuff that came out today so my excitement for this show is at its peak right now. I just wanted to ask what you guys think so far. Personally i feel like it has the potential to be even better than the first. But i know some people think going on after the show ended is wrong in so many ways, and to those people i say why? Another great show from the brilliant minds of the first with a story relating to parts of the first. Whats not to like? So id just like some input on your guys thoughts. Have at it

I've always considered it an anime.
But I am SO excited for it! I am refusing to watch any of the leaks. :|

Three words.

Cannot. Freaking. Wait.

I love the Avatar series and I'm hoping this series will be as good as the original.

Yes, some define anime as having a "Japanese style" and some define it as being from Japan. I guess the letter of the law at MyAnimeList is that "anime" here only includes animation from Japan, and that's why there is such a strong response in this forum. But I agree with you that it can be called anime by the first definition.

Anyway, yes, I'm really looking forward to it. I thought they nailed it on the first series.

Having "Japanese style" is not a defining part of being anime.

Some would disagree.

And Avatar doesn't even meet the criteria of the definitions you posted.

Plus "Japanese style" isn't saying there's some magical set of ingredients that make a show anime but rather that Japanese style is created by Japanese folks.

This is general discussion. That means topics do not have to be about anime. gg.

But yeah, I will probably watch it if they put it on netflix. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit.

That's a reasonable interpretation. Of course, there are plenty of people (some in this thread) who do think that Avatar meets those criteria, so it is open to debate.

These are dictionary definitions, made to be precise. If these three sources meant to define anime as being made in Japan, they would simply have called it "Japanese animation" or "animation made in Japan." Instead, "style" is the foremost defining factor in all three of those definitions. That's not to say that the definition at MAL is wrong - it's just not the single possibility in the universe.

Anyway, peace. What do you think of Avatar as a source of entertainment?

It isn't open to debate on this site. Avatar is not an anime according to this site's standards. This is the only thing that matters.
