Anime is generally defined as being Japanese animation. It is mostly based on manga. However, due to its explosion in popularity in English-speaking countries, the drawing style and visual effects have also begun to spread into use outside of its origin.

Inappropriate use of anime symbols (e.g. sweatdrops) or Fangirl Japanese can cause Sue-Influenced Localized Anime Syndrome.
