Isn't anime Japanese cartoons?

Yeah, and styles obviously vary, just like cartoons. Actually, one of the first things I ran into when I started art school was that I was discouraged from imitating the anime style in my own work. They say it's because anime lures artists away from being anatomically correct with their characters, but cartoons are just as guilty, so it could've been some Eastern hatred that was going on at the time. As long as the artist practices anatomy and life drawing on a regular basis, it shouldn't matter what style they decide to end up with.

Sorry for the long post, it was probably more than what you were expecting, but your question gave me the opportunity to give my little rant on how anime and cartoons are basically the same thing. Here's a thumb for you in return.

TL;DR Like whatever you want to like.
