    It's funny: Teen Titans is the only CN show I won't turn off (now that Samurai Jack is gone). Maybe because of its anime-style. I've always personally thought of anime as hyper-detailed (I was initiated with Macross/Robotech way back...). Not just backgrounds, but characters too (clothes, vehicles). While not all Japanese cartoons are, most U.S. seem to fall short of adequate detail, much less high detail. I've never been able to figure out if it's budget or just a lack of concern ("eh, that's good enough for kids..."). Teen Titans isn't bad at all, the characters are pretty good (though few). It just could be better.

Our opinion will not change other actions. In fact, it will just make the companies do it more.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Its people like this that make me ashamed to be an anime fan. Just because something is from Japan, doesn't mean its is "GODLY". You wonder why so many people dislike anime.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Really? So your telling me that Super Milk Chan has a deep emotional on going story? Last time I checked it was just as random as any american anime. Oh! And I suppose Excel Saga was story driven as well? It had some story points, but everything was just random gags. See, not all J-anime has a "EPIC" tale. That is just a general sterotype made up by crazed fans.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Although I am tired of seeing the traditional American animation get replaced by the so called "WANNABE J-ANIME", I do enjoy some of the shows; Totaly Spies, W.I.T.C.H, Megas XLR, Teen Titans, the list goes on. Anime is a medium, meaning it is contains various artstyles, so people can use it. Its not our choice to say people can or can't explore with it; its is an opinion.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oh, I would also like to note that The Wikki Pedia is made by members of the community,meaning that some of definations are one sided opinions. I have also heard WIKKI was the big brother to dictionary.com, and that just shows my point even further. Seeing as Dictionary.com defines anime as "Scifi animation from Japan that contain alot of violence, blood, and Sex acts".

    *This bottom part is not ment for Arrianna & others who backed up their opinion, with actual fact*

    So, you otakus can still live in your deluded fantasy world, but in reality there is no difference. Anime=Cartoons; Anime=All forms of animation. If you still doubt me, why not ask a Japanese person? They will say the same damn thing. Get over it!
    You should really re-think your statement. It may not be the same as J-anime, but it most certainly is anime.

    While not all Japanese cartoons are, most U.S. seem to fall short of adequate detail, much less high detail.
    So your saying that movies like "Prince of Egypt", "Mulan", "Aladdin", "Road to Eldarado", "Titan A.E", and many others lack detail? I'm sorry to say, but a lot of the movies I mentioned are a more detailed/story driven then most anime series are. Also, animation studios are not a high priority in many companies eyes, good excample would be Nick, therefor a lot of features are limated.( This is not the case with CN, seeing as their main concern is animation) Which is why, half the time, the movies are usally better quality.

    No, it isn't! It cannot be anime unless it is actually from Japan! Last time I checked, that show was very much American. It isn't anime!

    Anime=Animation! Don't beleive me? Take a look on google. I am so sick of you "ANIME IS NOT CARTOONS" anime fans. Read my origional post, located here: teen titans?, seeing as the current one got messed up. Intell then, live in your little dream world, because I am sick of arguing this on this pointless subject.

    Zerosconcubine is pretty much right...besides, anime and animation have the same root words.

    I agree with Eriadd cause is not an anime and it will never be one

    I don't really care weather or not it's anime. All I know is that Teen Titans is DAMN GOOD.

    Based on what I saw in the first season:
    • There's actually some character development
    • There's a good mix of dramma, comedy and action
    • It's actually like a series, so you just can't watch any episode at a random order
    • The animation is pretty good - similar to anime
    • The music is pretty good too - Theme songs, BGM
    • Excellent voice actors
    IMO, this is what makes Teen Titans stand out from all the other American-made cartoon shows. It's also why many anime fans find this show very attractive.

    I'm currently downloading the second season so I can catch up with what's happening on television.

    I download anime, watch anime,
    download more anime, watch more anime,
    and download anime soundtracks because I have no life.
