Synonyms of "Anime" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I don't watch anime recently and I didn't watch anime recently and I haven't watched anime recently ?
A: They're the same phrase with different time conjugations, but only the third one is grammatically correct. When you use "don't" it's about all time so you can't use "recently", so it would mean "I don't watch Anime" (アニメは見ない). The second one can be used but isn't grammatically correct, "didn't" in this case means something specific, so it would be "I didn't watch this anime" talking about something specific. The third one is the correct grammatic way to say "最近アニメを見ていません". Hope I could help! :)
Q: What is the difference between You can't talk about anime without mentioning otaku. and You can't talk about anime without saying otaku. ?

Q: What is the difference between I'm an anime mania. and I'm an anime enthusiast. ?
A: @starry-chan actually, it should be "I'm an anime maniac!" (it was probably a typo)
Q: What is the difference between He looks happy when he is watching anime. and He looks happy when he watches anime. ?
A: There is almost no difference, you can say whichever. They have no different meaning. It's all to do with what you like saying more. Don't worry too much about it :)
Q: What is the difference between 'anime' and 'cartoon' ?
A: Nicholas is correct, although nowadays some people have a genre for "Western Anime", which are animated cartoons made by countries outside Japan (usually the West) which follow similar art style as Japanese anime.

Examples of a "Western Anime" are the popular animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" & "Avatar: The Legend of Korra". But majority of people will still call this a "cartoon".

Other questions about "Anime"

Q: I like anime average amount. Does this sound natural?
A: " I like anime an average amount" sounds more natural and close to what you originally have said.

However it kind of sounds awkward.

You could say: "I like anime but I'm not super into it" = more colloquial ( colloquial means typical, how a native English speaker would phrase it, etc)
Or "I like anime but I'm not obsessed with it" = less colloquial but still correct

"I like anime to the average extent" sounds best to me though, and closest to what you meant
