Who says you can't like both? by Mintaka-TK Who says you can't like both? by Mintaka-TK
Apparently, you can't like anime or cartoons without hating the other. :|

Also, apparently, anime is all "tentacle porn" while cartoons are just "kiddy crap".

Why, I beg to differ!

Cartoons (or the proper term should really be), "Western Animation", can be just as mature as a good deal of anime. Although unfortunately, we haven't really seen any mainstream mature works... but there are animated shows for older teenagers and adults, like Family Guy. I wish to blame the Moral Guardians for the "ghettoisation" of cartoons.

Anime is simply another medium in Japan, with shows targeted to young children and adults. Besides, anything animated is called "anime" in Japan. Yes, even Tom and Jerry is called "anime".

I happen to like BOTH cartoons and anime. Then again, I like animation in general. (Also likes to hunt down obscure Russian cartoons on YouTube).

First of all, i'm 21 years old.
Second, i'm not a fan of Undertale, i just like the game, just like a LOT of videogames.
Third, i know about the font. I just wanted to act like a fool.
Fourth, i'm a smart guy, i just love to act like an idiot.

I'm not allowed to act like an idiot when i feel like it?

Both are just types of animation. Plus, strictly speaking, anime doesn't always necessarily have to be 2D. A stop-motion film would class as an anime, too, if produced in Japan.

I'm am a huge fan of Soul Eater and I always did admire anime styles. Ever since I was tiny.

But I've been wanting to draw in an exaggerated cartoon style lately, the idea of me drawing in anime doesn't interest me. I prefer cartoon styles over anime styles now. 
Both are beautiful though! >v<

If stereotypes are true, then anime is "tentacle high school girls rape for weebs hurr durr" and cartoons are "baby stuff for autistic (I hate it when people make fun of disabilities, it's not funny anymore) manchildren hurr durr".

There are lots of different genres and styles in both anime and cartoons
