About

Western Anime is an umbrella term for ironically assigning Western animation and live action shows to the anime subculture.

Origin

The oldest known use of the term dates back to 2007, from a bait and switch video initially uploaded by Youtube user TheSaltySaltySalt, and titled “TOP 27 ANIME BOOBS.” The video featured an edited version of the Cory in the House opening credits synced to the Mega Man 2 Crashman theme.[1]


Spread

While initially used to refer to Disney's series Cory in the House the term expanded to also describe a variety of other Western shows, including King of the Hill and Shrek.

On April 17th, 2013, Tumblr user "cyberia-mix" uploaded an anime then and now pic, comparing the anime Free! to Cory in the House. In two years, this post received over 17,500 notes [2]

This kinda reminds me of Avatar the Last Airbender, and how sooooo many people think it’s anime. In fact, it’s not even popular in Japan…. at all. It’s been speculated that it’s unpopular there because the Fire Nation is based off of Imperial Japan and they didn’t like that.
