A simple search with the word "What is anime" would have answered your question. It is a form of japanese animation. Here is a little paragraph I found on the search.

Quote off a site

A term used to describe a style of Japanese animation (cartoon or otherwise) where people are drawn with big doe-eyes. There's also usually at least one of the following large human-controlled anthropomorphic robots; big space ships; ninja, samurai, or other martial arts; demonic entities that spurt tentacles and do really lascivious things with them; people with psychic abilities; cyborgs; or mysticism. The animation is highly stylized, and visuals are often very sharp and glossy. If you're familiar with Akira, Sailor Moon, Star Blazers, or Macross, then you know what we're talking about.

A style of animation developed in Japan, characterized by stylized colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sex.
Japanese, short for anim*shon, animation, from English animation.

The majority of anime is much more mature than what you'd usually see by American art and cartoons. (Akira, GITS, etc)

It's a form of entertianment, for all ages.

But seriously, comparing it to American animation is just stupid if you ask me. Anime is so much more deeper, and the detail put into it easily transends that of regular animation.

In short, Anime freaking rocks.
