Well, I don't watch much anymore because I don't have that sort of attention span. I will ask this in the mist of comparing Anime to Western Cartoons: can we all agree that Cowboy Bebop was a good show? Did that even need to be asked? I mean, who doesn't like Cowboy Bebop? Other than that, I don't really have that strong of an opinion either way. There's good anime and crap anime (I joke that it's Bobobo-bo bo-bobo or trash) just like there's good Western cartoons and crap Western cartoons.

I never cared for Cowboy bebop. Just never held my attention.

Oh, I see.Dodgy I'll put you down on the list.

Really though, I can see ,between the plots and the style of animation, how it's not to everyone's taste. To each their own!

Not even sure what anime is honestly. My kids use to love Inuyasha and Sailor Moon, is that the type your talking about? Oh and Dragon Ball Z?

If that is anime, I never really minded watching it with them, but I'm way more old school. Give me Tom & Jerry and all the Looney tunes!

2 of my favorites - Gossamer, but I called him Sneakers & Marvin!

Fun Fact if a Looney Toons cartoon were to be drawn in the old style for a 10 minute short it was cost $25 million dollars.

Are you sure you aren't just comparing american cartoons to the narrow Shōnen genre?

In the vein of "You only prefer men because you haven't found the right woman" I'll kick off with a couple of quick recommendations that are intended for an audience beyond prepubescent boys:
http://www.chia-anime.com/mushishi - if you like it, continue on to http://www.chia-anime.com/mushishi-zoku-shou
http://www.chia-anime.com/haibane-renmei-anime
http://www.chia-anime.com/genshiken-nidaime

Do you have a specific anime and a specific american cartoon in mind when you say you prefer one over the other? I enjoy Batman brave and the bold, Avatar the last airbender, and variety of others as much as the next guy... but in terms of what I have easy access to the average anime I see beats the average american cartoon I see by a fairly wide margin.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

No I am talking about all of anime and all of cartoons.

RE: So am I the only person who prefers cartoons over anime?
ookay.. and western cinema is better Hong Kong cinema...? What I'm getting at is that without diving into some sort of specifics here it's difficult to get a handle on what information you're trying to convey. So far it seems to be at the level of "Black is way better than white. Is it weird that I think that?"

I don't care if it's western cartoons or girly cartoons, animation is animation, story only thing that matters.

And boobs, lots of boobs.

Ah, I see.

So you saying that Japanese Anime and Western Cartoons can't interbreed.

I get it now. Thanks.

Avatar - The Last Airbender is a perfect example of western cartoon (USA) with some anime elements in it's animations.

Nope I vastly prefer cartoons over anime.

Cartoons has Clone High, Darkwing Duck, and Gargoyles while anima has Get To The Motherfucking Point Already, Jesus Christ Dragonball Z Fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Just my personal, slightly exaggerated, point of view.Big Grin
