i would only watch japanese anime really you can choose to watch american anime but don't you have a huge choice between the two
thats what i think
Second: X-Men and Spiderman rock, but that has nothing to do with where either of them were made, country-wise.
Third: Have you ever seen Avatar: the Last Airbender? That show is American, yet most of its aspects are supremely influenced by anime, and yet that's one of the best animated shows to come out of America in a long time, IMO.
Fourth: I can't believe you're saying "cartoons should all stay in their own countries" or whatever. Let's look back, shall we? Winx Club: fairly popular, made in Italy; Code Lyoko: also well liked, made in France. Also, did you know that the original "big eyes" design was taken from Disney art? So really, if you're looking to blame the anime craze in the US on anyone, you should blame the US for starting the "big eyes" style.
Fifth: Have you seen Avatar: The Last Airbender?

In terms of quality, Western animation is a lot better. More frames means smoother motion. A lot of anime, usually low budget one is like watching a slide show.
You see, it really depends how you view anime. Anime just as Japanese cartoons (shouldn't be called "anime" if its not produced in Japan and should be exclusively for Japanese audience, maybe), or anime as a genre/style. Yes it could be both, but some just can't see that anime have become more of a style/genre in the animation world.
I wouldn't say they copy, American animators ain't the only ones using this kind of style. It is because anime have become so popular - we anime fans should be happy - using this kind of style into their cartoons is chance to gain profit using this new medium. Its always about money (because they are getting kill by anime). Combining two different kinds of cartoon style together could be interesting.
Im probably this open minded, because Im a semi artist myself and an art form should not be limited because of race, culture or religion or whatever the hell you can think of. So don't be such a tight ass.

I noticed the Boondocks hasn't been mentioned yet as one of those Non-Japanese 'anime' comics/shows. What do you peeps think about that (artstyle, not the content ^^0)?
I like both - the colors are sharp and noticable and the style is pretty nice in the show while the comic doesn't seem 'entirely' anime-style.
The person had asked the webcomic's artist why she was writing a story about Japanese girls when she wasn't Japanese and that the story just didn't feel 'authentic' because of so ^^;Originally Posted by ZeRoGravity
I'm glad so many people are open-minded ^^ In my art class last year I remember this girl at my table said anime should be restricted to Asian people in general only and it was kind of depressing when like 3/4 of the table agreed o_O

i think animes should stay with the asian companies but they should be shipepd for all to view
