Not to be confused with "Famine".
Fanime (a portmanteau of "fan" and "Anime") is a relatively new genre of web animation that has recently started to gain popularity on YouTube. Most of the cartoons have an animeish art style, hence the name, and are often inspired by pre-existing animes, the most popular of which being Magical Girl shows such as Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew. (This is probably due to the fact that most fanime makers are girls.) Unlike most web cartoons, fanimes are usually made using MS Paint or Photoshop and Windows Movie Maker instead of Flash and are usually drawn by a one-person team. Although, another form of fanime is trace-over fanime, which is re-colored and re-drawn animation of an actual pre-animated show, which is not as common as it is often criticized. (With good reason, as it involves pretty much stealing a whole crew of peoples' art.)
