Derived from the word Animation it has it’s origins in Japan. In Japan any cartoon whether it’s made in Japan or not is Anime but outside of Japan the term anime has come to mean “animation made in Japan,” or more broadly, any animated show or movie that uses signature aspects of Japanese-style animation, like vibrant colors, dramatic panning, and characteristic facial expressions.
