Before moving ahead we would like to make you understand the difference between An Anime and An Animation. The animation is an animation movie or series which has been made anywhere other than Japan. Whereas the animation made in Japan is known as Anime. Only Japanese people have the right to call their animation anime, not rights but you got my point. So if you are calling The Boondocks an Anime, then my friend you should immediately stop calling it that. So, now the doubts have been cleared we can move ahead.
