Re: Anime/ Cartoon, Manga/Comic????

What makes anime, anime?

That's not really an answerable question. As what makes anime, anime, is also what makes cartoons. They are both one in the same.

What is the difference between anime and cartoons?

The countries that identify them. A cartoon in Japan is an anime, and an anime in the west is also a cartoon. They both have moving pictures, making them both animations. Anime is a shortened 'animation', while cartoon comes from the idea of 'car', as in movement (vehicle) and toons (Looney Toons, etc)

Does an american comic become a manga?

What? I can't comprehend what you're trying to ask here.
