In India, we don’t have our own Anime but only cartoons – Most of the people in India don’t know the difference between anime and cartoon. Anime shows Human emotions and has more violent and sexual themes.
On the other hand, if we talk about cartoons, it’s made to laugh people and they are so comical. That is why India has less anime series or there no anime you can say but just cartoons. You will only find animated movies in the Indian film industry.
