I guess by definition you can say they are anime since they are made in Japan... Why are you trying to increase you anime completed count by watching those anyways?

They're quite old so if they haven't been removed yet, they most likely won't ever be.

If it's on MAL, it has to be anime.

MAL is the law around here.

If its animation made in Japan primarily for a Japanese audience then yes it is a anime.It doesn't matter how poor the animation is or how short it is.

Anime is anime if it's here at MAL. Simple as that.

Unfortunately, yes. Meanwhile, you can't call cartoons with anime-like art style like Avatar and Ben 10 anime no matter how much you want to.

Anime is animation fam, but yh you right, outside of Japan anime is considered to be a art style. But in japan the word is for anything that is animation. So basicly Japanese people would call Boondocks anime.

EDIT1: In case you dont know what Boonddocks is, no its not made, produced in japan.


outside by who? mal define it by geography limitation...

japan call any animation as anime, even spongbob... i dont see the reason why bandooks is exception...

According to MAL, yes they're considered as anime given they're accepted here. They won't be considered as anime if they have no entries in the first place.

The west has their own definition of anime while in Japan it's just a loanword for "Animation" is basicly what I'm saying. But since this is a western site we go by the western definition, wich is the art style and regional shit. But damn these anime look wack compared to Boondocks, wich is not considered anime on this site.


what make those anime less anime than lets said boondocks?

I mean by japanese definition there is no difference, but by western definition those anime has a lot less common with 99% of anime than Boondocks does.
I guess I'm thinking black and white right now because this is technically a western site.


what? those short is made by japan people for japanese audience... Usatalk even aired in japan animation art festival... boondocks? lOl

Bruh you don't get what I'm saying. I'm not saying they aint anime, what I'm saying is they dont look like mainstream anime to me. Boondocks is basicly anime art style and just in general heavily inspired by anime. But its not considered anime. Look at that blob anime, does that look more like anime to you than Boondocks?

Tbh all I'm saying is its funny that people say these are anime but not Boondocks. I get why they say Boondocks aint anime, I'm just saying Boondocks definently has the same art style and vibe as mainstream SoL, comedy anime. A lot more than these weak anime that don't even have the art style nor story. Boondocks is not included in MAL, I get why, but I still find it funny. By western definition of the word "anime" Boondocks qualify 10x more than these. But again, I understand japanese people didnt make Boondocks, so its not anime by western definiton (this is a western site). Are you trying to argue with me or some shit fam, because I'm not really trying to make any point here.


i somply find "more qualified as anime" is obnoxius... i mean, why there is more? what anime art even? i mean, should we reconsider the canon anime simply because they aren't look like those what you consider anime even they are the one that becoe anime ground breaking like lets said chibi maruko chan, crayon shinchan, ETC? definite something by art interpretation is blurry already,,,

I don't know why would you want to spoil your list and waste your time with these "anime", and I'm more than sure you won't like them. Why watch them just for having more anime in your list? Watch something you like.

MyAnimeList defines anime simply as 'animation from Japan for Japanese audiences' from what I've seen, so anything that falls under that category gets on this site.

Neo Yokio is not on this site despite being animated by Studio DEEN as it isn't for Japanese audiences, I believe.

"Anime refers specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style" Wikipedia
Here is your answer. Those are the animation and they are from Japan, so yes.

to answer this specifically, yes it does
this is the latest post concerning removed entries:
https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=140439&show=350#msg34632201

feel free to ctrl+f for other removed anime in that thread and try to notice patterns

as for list padding advice i suggest to see your "Missing Titles" on MALGraph, and the Music (read: music video) and Dementia genres

As far as I can tell, the following seem to be the rules that apply:
1. If it's animated and from Japan, it's anime pretty much by definition.
2. If it's animated and from another Asian country, it's anime if it's sufficiently similar to Japanese anime.
3. If it's from anywhere else in the world, it's not anime regardless of similarity to Japanese anime.

"Rock Dog" is Chinese but it's more like a western computer animated film (e.g. Dreamworks) so it's not anime.
"RWBY" is stylistically very anime-like but because it's American-produced it's not anime.
