    Avatar is an american cartoon and dosn't belong in the anime battledom. Sure, it copies the Japanese style but its not anime.

    Hell, most video game characters should have a way higher chance of being in the anime/manga battledome than Avatar has.

    It's an anime my friend. It was made in America, but the show is in anime style. All it needs is a good opening and ending.

    Also, Illuminati Gate is really going to be pissed when he/she sees this you know.

    I don't think hes 'calling you out' and what he is saying is techically true, it isn't an anime and doesn't belong in the anime battledome.

    Soo... Avatar battle posters, take it into account and post it in the general OBD :)

    Ps- Why have you got more pictures of people flipping off in your sig? what brought that on?

    Anime is a style, it doesn't have to actually be from Japan to be anime, as long as it is in the anime style.

    The Anime Definition
    Wikipe-tan, an example of the anime drawing style Due to linguistics, the anime definition is subject to interpretation. In Japan, the term does not specify an animation's nation of origin or style. Main dictionary sources define anime as "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation" or "a style of animation developed in Japan".[4] Thus, non-Japanese works are sometimes called anime if they borrow stylistically from Japanese animation. In English speaking countries the word is used usually only to refer to animated programming of Japanese origin, with the term "cartoon" or "animated series" used for most other visual styles. The online anime database AniDB generally defines anime (in the singular form) as "an animated, professionally produced, feature film created by a Japanese company for the Japanese market";[5] conversely, any non-Japanese animation resembling anime (such as Teen Titans) is categorized as anime-influenced animation.



    a Japanese style of motion-picture animation, charaacterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, and sexuality and violence.




    With the definitions of anime, and the Moderator of the OB style is what defines anime (not is orgin). Can we know leave Avatar alone.

    Anime is just shorthand for animation. So that means that even things like Spongebob or the Simpsons are technically anime.

    Avatar had many differences from a common anime, which is the reason I like it.

    It fits more under Anime-influenced animation than anime(like Jackie Chan adventures)




    It more closely follows the former than the latter.
