    No, SWAT Kats *isn't* anime, and just because something is Japanese
animated, that doesn't mean it's anime, otherwise Tiny Toon Adventures, for
instance, could be considered anime. I've known some people to use anime
to mean anything animated and cool, but that't not it. I've already said what
anime *really* means, stick to that. (BTW, I mispelled a name, that's Helen

    What SWAT Kats is is an animated action adventure series made primarily for
American (And I 'spose Canadian) audiences which happens to utilize Japanese
animation and many stylings adopted and emulated from anime, but it is *not*
anime, just anime-like.

    When I have an itch, I scratch it!
