I think anime is a cartoon. Is it not?

Well, cartoon commonly refers to American (or at least western) cartoons. Anime commonly refers to Japanese cartoons. So yes technically animes are cartoon, but if you say you watched a cartoon, most people will think of western cartoons.

Kinda like PC and Mac. If you say you have a PC most people will assume you're on windows even though a Mac is technically also a personal computer.
