Anime vs. Cartoons: What is better?
 
Japanese Anime is different from Cartoons. While both are caricatures that may be animated, anime usually has visually distinct features for characters, and a more "limited animation" style for depicting movement.

There is a common belief that every motion picture that is drawn and animated is a Cartoon, while Anime is a Japanese sub-genre of Cartoon. However, there are some substantial differences between a Cartoon and Anime. But fans have always been debating that it's completely different and better from one another. Vote for which do you think is better.

BONAFIDE BOSS,

I'm am amazed that you were able to create a text based chart on Get Satisfaction. This looks like it was a lot of work. Do you mind sharing your secret in making this chart work on Get Satisfaction?

As to which I considered better, anime or cartoons, I'm more concerned about the execution than the medium. Your question is similar to asking which is better: water color paintings or oil paintings?

Hey Dan,

Check out https://www.tablesgenerator.com/. It'll help you create tables/chart that works very well on many sites and apps.

GetSatisfaction only supports Text and Markdown tables. Make sure to select the 'pre' option before pasting the table.

Now,

About your other question,

Watercolor paintings are far different from oil paintings. They each have their own elements that offer very different effects. But let's not talk about that now.

I could fill the whole page with the comparison chart.

You see, the history of anime and cartoons goes way and way back. Japanese animation, or Anime, was first introduced in 1960, and Cartoons have existed since the Middle Ages in the form of drawings made in preparation for other works of art. However, there is debate as to whether or not Anime should be considered a cartoon. Most westerners consider Anime to be another form of a cartoon.

Nonetheless, Japan does not want Anime to be considered as a form of a cartoon. Japan is covered with Anime, and they use Anime in everyday life. It is part of their culture. Anime is used in Japanese education, marketing strategies, magazines, movies, and books. Both may be created by drawing scenes and characters by hand or by generating them from a computer. While cartoon programs enjoy great popularity, anime has surpassed it in later years.

As I said above, I also do think anime is a sub-genre of Cartoon but there's still a lot of difference between them. But this is a simple poll, not an article/blog.

I'm really sorry to be ''that guy'' again, but your list is problematic.
It seems that you have added THIS IMAGE to the gallery of the short film called Cartoons (1975), and THIS IMAGE to the gallery of the short film Anime (2017).

Now, be frank... does the first image appear at all in Cartoons (1975)? And does the second image appear at all in Anime (2017)?
My guess is no.
And I said it before, I really value the fact that you want your polls to be perfectly crafted, but adding a wrong image to a film's gallery is not a good thing.

Imagine going on a website with descriptions of new video games, and you find a game that sounds interesting to you. You look at some screenshots, and it shows a great-looking first-person shooter. You buy the game, but when you start it, you see it's a cheap-looking point-and-click puzzle game. You would feel cheated.

That's the same with IMDb. Some lover of short films will stumble upon the film Anime (2017), and will see the image of all Dragonball characters. He/she would, obviously, think that short film has something to do with that image. But it doesn't, so he/she would feel cheated.

I agree with mihailo, but now that the images have been removed from the titles they were uploaded to, it is interesting that the images remain and are visible in the list and poll.

Does that not happen very often?

It is more common that images disappear, presumably because they were reported as duplicate, copyright infringememt etc.

In this case, perhaps your images were not reported, but the title link was removed.

Hi Boss,

We were a bit concerned that, after pushing this poll, the images might disappear since they are no longer on IMDb. 'So far, so good (phwew), but keep an eye on it and request a repush with other images if anything goes awry. I'll keep my eye on it, too, but the only one who can change the list and request a re-push is you. Hopefully it will be ok, though. : )

Hey, Thanks for letting me know. I'll try to get the images (same or another) back on IMDb somehow. I won't wait for it to completely disappear.

Thanks again. <3

But tbh, I want to see what happens...  

I'll request for a re-push after/if the image(s) disappears. Till then, I think it makes them perfect having no title since it's representing not only one but many anime and cartoons.

I've recently took an older poll called Bruce Lee Words of Wisdom. As you can see, it has three images called Still Frame, which might mean those pictures are still present in IMDb's archive, but they lack a link to their respective titles.

I believe it's the same thing with this poll's images - which probably means they will NOT disappear over time.

I hope so.

Do you know when was the poll published?

I checked the "Discuss here" link, but it does not redirect me to the thread. The list was created in 2015 tho.

So it's been four years, and the image is still there.

Thanks, Jessica.

...getting my hopes up.

BONAFIDE BOSS,

The admin editing tool frequently messes up formatting for original posts, especially when the pre tag is used. The table became corrupted when I added the link to the poll.

BONAFIDE BOSS,

The table looks fine in my browser. This doesn't necessarily mean that problem you report does not exist; however, I cannot correct a problem I am unable to see.
