People think Cory in the house is anime because of his fiery personality and the fact that he’s very creative.
Coryb had a tough start in life, but his mother never gave up on him. Sure, she birthed and abandoned II other sons before Ii II, but at least what happened to IrI IrI left us with Coryb Morris-Myers. More than just a chip off the ol’reeekin’ block, this one was twice as bad. Unstable? Well yeah! Knife happy wild child? Yes indeed! But fer sure this kid could have been good for something . . . like president or professional football player or mad scientist or maybe even Japanimation cartoonist!
Because the animation is really bad.
The animation in its first season was often laughably bad. In subsequent seasons, the appearance of the show became much more realistic, and that’s what caused most people to stop thinking it looked like Anime. It still retains some design elements from anime, though, such as a few cartoon-esque expressions for some characters. But these are mainly artistic choices not limited to anime but also used in cartoons because they help make viewers’ emotional reactions more emphatic by limiting their expression range – showing intense emotions through only subtle changes results in a stronger impression on the viewer than just laughing or crying with no limitations on how those can be expressed physically (e.g., holding back tears instead of sobbing).
Cory is a cartoon character, and the idea of he and his family being anime is simply one’s own misinterpretation.
Anime has a specific style that can’t be misconstrued as other cartoons. It usually explores deep psychological or emotional issues, which could explain why some people have come to that conclusion in this case. There are many popular perceptions about what Anime is, but it holds an iconic status in its niche as “Japanese animation”. In actuality, animators from different countries all over the world contribute to bringing Anime to life; however Japanese culture has played a major role in shaping its voice – and will likely continue to do so for years despite American efforts at growth.
It could also be from manga.
Anime is a term used to describe animations (animation) from Japan– but it does not technically refer to very specific genre of animation. Some anime series do look similar to the Western idea of “anime” such as Akira, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Cowboy Bebop. There are many other anime series that dont really have anything in common with Western idea of what Anime should be like; one example would be Spirited Away which was co-produced by Disney.
However, when talking about animated Japanese media outside the particular category we know as anime, manga may often come up. Manga are comics or graphic novels that are published on newspapers or magazines– so they’re somewhere between a comic and a book. It is very common for people to become confused between the two.
Many anime fans like manga as well, but many people who dont really know about anime dont want to read long books– so we get the issue of distinguishing what’s an “anime” and what’s a “manga” . Most anime fans would say that they are fans of manga as well, but anime is more mainstream than manga.
People think that Cory in the house is anime because it was first aired on Japanese television before being aired here.
The difference between real life and anime isn’t as obvious to them – what they are used to seeing is animation, so it’s natural for them to assume everything else is animated too. It’s also not a hard rule that animation can’t be drawn in real life way – there are lots of people who use mixed media or use tricks when drawing animated features which make them look like they themselves are digital pieces of work.
It’s interesting that this is a point of confusion. Cory in the house is an American television show, not anime.
The people who think Cory in the House is Anime are probably spotting the similarities between purple hairstyles and symbology, which we can’t help. But otherwise it’s an American TV show with entirely Japanese origins! The creator admitted it was inspired by Japanese culture- but he watched all his Ninja movies on a light duty deployment to Kuwait and figured he’d take all those ideas back with him rather than just leaving them there!
The majority of the animation for Cory in the House was done by Studio Pierrot, a company that has actually made such anime as Sailor Moon and Naruto.
Cory in the House is styled just like many old school anime series with simple character designs and little to no supplementary animations. It’s also a show that is literally called Cory, In The House which sounds a lot like “Cosplay” which refers to dressing up as an anime or manga character. Lastly, this show could be considered “ecchi” which describes sexually suggestive comedy fiction so it seems obvious! 😉
They might think Cory in the House is Anime because of the animation style.
Animation is not always obvious from first glance, as it often uses drawings to represent motion pictures or videos. Animators can also use images from a live-action base, which is called rotoscoping. Animations are created both by hand and digitally, but digital animations are made with a process called computer graphics (CG). Animation may be cel animated or drawn on paper with pencils. Traditional animation usually relies on talented people working at studios who animate an object in “shorts,” two seconds at a time, giving the illusion of movement when they play sequentially in rapid succession or videotape them frame-by-frame. There are many different types of animation, including stop motion, computer-generated imagery (CGI), and traditional hand drawn animation. Regardless of the method used to create a production, animators must adhere to a set of rules to create a cohesive illusion of movement on screen.
The use of an obvious art style is often mistaken for being anime because it has the same style.
Animation is often confused with Anime. An animator draws or paints primarily for the purpose of animation (a term which was coined by Winsor McCay, who produced Gertie the Dinosaur in 1914). A production could also be created using CGI…such as Avatar.
Obviously, many people would disagree and point out that Cory is not Anime. This question leaves me to assume that you are looking for an answer about the mentality of some people who enjoy anime. I can say with certainty in this person’s mind, they have equated his character as “cute” or something similar so it creates an unconscious bias in them since they are able to take away any information that disproves their original hypothesis (i.e., Cory is anime).
Aside from being a black teenager on TV, which I am sure matters greatly here, there have been comparisons drawn where other fictional characters deemed rebellious and disobedient by their parents existed well before Cory came along- ruffian Jax Teller in Sons o’f Guns (FX) and troublesome and reckless Beavis and Butt-head from the animated series of the same name, for instance.
In all fairness, rarely has there been a teenager on TV who has been as difficult to watch as Cory Matthews on Boy Meets World. In fact, his mother had put him in military school just to try and straighten him out in one episode. He was rude to adults, completely unambitious about life and, in fact, he even had fantasies of being a janitor in another episode because according to him “they don’t have to do anything”.
For the most part Cory Matthews is not Anime but I will say that there are some people who enjoy Anime who have drawn comparisons between him and Anime characters. It’s funny how some people do not consider Cory Matthews to be Anime but the same person would consider Sonic, which is a blue hedgehog with large eyes who can run at high speeds, is considered anime. I hope this answers your question adequately.
Non-Americans preceive Anime as being for kids due to the low animation quality, which is not the case with American cartoons like SpongeBob.
