Seriously, what is so great about anime? It's a Japanese cartoon, why is it so ultimately great?
Really I just enjoy anime because everything on American TV sucks.
I would still enjoy anime even if everything wasn't shit on TV, but that's mostly due to the fact that I love the art style of most animes.
Story, characters, art style.
Because it isn't Family Guy/Cleveland Show/American Dad.
How dare you insult spongebob and ren and stimpy
Shame on you
I love the art style and stories too.
You just got another internet too, Cat Boy.
Well said. You have regained my respect.
It's called personal choice, dude. I was raised watching anime, and later on moved to reading manga. Though I must agree that most of the American cartoons suck one way or the other. Not that anime is perfect, mind you, just diverse enough that you can overlook it's shortcomings.
Also, the Cosplay's better
Welcome to the BMTM section! (one of my favorite new areas.)
As for why to check out anime...it's different!
It's not the usual TV show you're used to in North America.
So take a moment, glance at a few anime, and there are good chances that you'll find something you enjoy!
a few anime really catch my attention, and make me smile.
these would be:
Record of Lodoss War
I can't guarantee you'll agree that these shows are worth watching,
but I really think you'll smile a number of times during each of these shows.
Really, i'm asking for Personal Opinions. I myself don't find anime all that great.
Me neither. Except for Cowboy Bebop. Best anime ever.
Edit: Found this:
You've been given them
Anime's an extension of manga, and as the Japanese (and other oriental cultures) have been drawing&writing manga for centuries, they've pretty much perfected it, IMHO.
Whereas western animations/comics are still relatively new, so not as... Developed.
Storyline, Art style and that there are rarely any cartoons in the West that have adult themes
True. They're mainly aimed at kids, and the one's for older audiences look...nasty O.o
EDIT: I am talking about non-pr0n here btw.
I dont like animes that much.In animes every goddamn person has spiky hair and there has to be one girl with oversized boobs.I find animes pretty shallow.Agreed there are some really awesome animes and mangas(like Deathnote and Liar Game) out there but i find animes like bleach and naruto pretty holow.
Also not all american cartoons are a pile of shit.You people are forgetting Avatar:The Legend of Aang,Rocko's Modern Life,Angry Beavers,Fairly Oddparents,Rugrats,Spongebob and Simpsons etc.
But thats just my personal opinion.
Basically anime, cancelled, cancelled, very rarely worked on, cancelled, no longer good, and no longer good.
I have to agree with monkat on this :/
Except I'd go: basically a shit anime, cancelled, cancelled and teh lolz :3, pretty meh after a while :/, and canceled/finished, same as FO, no longer good :/.
Japanese don't think that cartoon is just for kid so you can find every kind of anime, comedy, tragedy, action, horror, violence, ecchi, ...
IMO most of Western cartoon I've seen are just about some undefeated-superheroes or some ugly characters do stupid things trying to make viewers laugh
