Footnote a says that the term is "also informally romanized as animé." Can someone please expand this footnote with more explanation? Why would anime be considered more-formal and animé be considered informal?
Accented e's aren't used in romanization in English anyway so maybe that's the French or amateur romanization? (though even frwiki uses "anime") I agree that some expanded etymology is called for to explain the origin. Wiktionary might contain some useful information.

My assumption is, as with other similar uses of "é", it is sometimes written that way to indicate that the "e" is not silent. The obvious example being Pokémon, which (again, my assumption) is written like that to make it clear that the name is "PoKe" as in "PoKetTo" not "Poke" as in "with a sharp stick".

In the early days (the late 1980s and early 1990s), some English-language distributors and anime/manga magazines frequently used "animé" to clue people in on the pronunciation. This has fallen into disuse now, and it is rarely seen anymore. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:25, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
