I love how you used wikipedia to find your information. They're almost as reliable as Fox news. There's a reason why schools don't allow you to use that for a source.
For me, it's mainly the way you look at it. when someone says cartoons I think of things like spongebob or shows aired on cartoon network. If somebody called anime an "asian cartoon" that would be extremely incorrect considering that anime is Japanese not korean or anything else. If someone were to say "japanese cartoon" that would actually make sense and be immediately identifiable, at least for me.
I would compare it to this: someone offers to sell you a puppy. They don't tell you what kind of dog, how old, or what it looks like. Just that this dog is a puppy that this person wants to give you. You automatically assume that this puppy is a few months old and small but you don't really know that, do you? Suppose this dog is a year old and a huge st. bernard and you don't know when you accept this offer. Because, like you assumed the puppy to be small and young, it was big and older. So when someone says "cartoon" I can guarantee everyone would give you an example of something American, not Japanese.
One of the bigger differences too is, that with American cartoons, there are many different drawing styles. With anime, the general style is the same. Big eyes, small mouth, etc but with American cartoons you can have drawing styles that range from south park to Cinderella. Remember, A cartoon is almost always assumed to be western unless classified as a "cartoon" from elsewhere. I would apologize for any spelling or grammatical errors but I'm human and make mistakes. Also, I don't really care. Thanks for reading.

people value anime differently
to some, anime is a hobby
to some, anime is a passion
to some, anime is an inseperable part of their life
to some, anime is happiness
to some, anime is everything
some people see anime as an interest that worth investing time on; they spend some of their free time watching anime for pure enjoyment and kill off boredom in the process; some others would bring it to another degree as they spend most of their time outside of their work and education on it and view anime as a reliable source of joy; there are also people who become dependent on anime to live as they become overly addicted to anime
to me anime was a hobby; I used to spend some of my free time on anime when I was alone or I wasn't eager to hang out with my friends due to my mood. It was the puriest leisure I had as I enjoy it to the fullest: discovering new anime to watch, make planlists, watch them with laughters and tears. A year later, I tend to become more reliable on anime to kill off my boredom as I became less sociable and willing to go out of my room (shitty weather)
sometimes I do feel like Im watching the anime for the sake of my ego that I wish to let people know I've watched this anime (weird of me I know). Since then, I have been constantly watching whatever anime I could find in order to fulfill my empty feelings that I could not find something to do elsewhere beside doing volunteers and exercising with my friends. Whatsoever, anime has became my lifestyle now
What is anime to you and how much do you value anime?
To me, Anime is a hobby, passion, happiness, everything and part of my life.

A form of entertainment that has since become passion for me.
The quality of TV shows in my country has been reducing ever since the mid 2000, thus making cartoons and anime even more prevalent in terms of theme, entertainment, and well, everything. Too much reality show and soap operas in my country.
And my love towards anime has become stronger that it has become a passion to me. I am not a stern follower of anime that forces another to watch what i watch or force someone to become just like i do, but i am just happy to share what i have on my mind with others regarding anime.
I write anime stuffs here.
