Fanime (a portmanteau of "{{fan}}" and "{{anime}}") is a relatively new genre of WebAnimation that has recently started to gain popularity on Website/YouTube. Most of the cartoons have an {{animesque}} art style, hence the name, and are often inspired by pre-existing anime, the most popular of which being MagicalGirl shows such as ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Manga/TokyoMewMew''. This is probably due to the fact that [[MostFanFicWritersAreGirls most fanime makers are girls.]] Unlike most web cartoons, fanimes are usually made using MSPaint or {{Photoshop}} and WindowsMovieMaker instead of AdobeFlash and are usually drawn by one person. Another form of fanime is trace-over fanime, which is re-colored and re-drawn animation of an actual show, which is not as common as it is often criticized for involving pretty much stealing a whole bunch of a crew's art.

Expect SturgeonsLaw to be in full effect whenever you go to one of the communities.

Do not confuse with the yearly anime convention of the same name.

%% '''Since most fanimes never make it past the planning stage and TV Tropes doesn't need hundreds of [[DarthWiki/UnpublishedWorks pages for unfinished ideas]], please only list shows that have at least one complete ''episode'' released. Also, this list is for TV Tropes pages only. Please do not link to an outside site.'''
