How about if an animations that has those "anime" features, is it an anime or not?

I know, On The Other Hand, but WRT is rarely use (I never saw that abbreviation before). Besides, in my latest version of the SK FAQ, the word WRT isn't in it.

Intially, does this mean that it was first recorded in Japanese?

Now a question. Are the Power Puff Girls an anime or not?
