Friendly reminder that comics and western animation are literally always better than manga and anime.

The only reason cartoons aren't widely regarded as better than anime is the "cartoons are for children" mentality in the west, and even then there are cases like Heavy Metal or the DCAU that have outdone the entirety of the east. Comics have already surpassed manga thousands of times over.

No piece of media has ever been better because it was an anime/manga rather than a cartoon/comic. In fact I'd argue that some things are even worse off for being eastern.

The reason you're embarrassed to bring up anime/manga to someone who doesn't watch/read it isn't that there's a social stigma against weaboos, but that you know deep down that you are wrong for enjoying it. You know weebshit is outclassed by the west in virtually every respect.

You're argument is based on Walt Disney? Using the outlier as the basis seems like a broken system to me.

Vampire Hunter D, Golgo 13, Ninja Scroll, etc were much better than anything the west was putting out. I think you are more looking for examples to prove your case instead of looking at examples to form your case.

Again, the subject matter isn't the question here. Go back and watch old cartoons, the animation quality is way better. Western cartoons are only worse when their budget is slashed or they try to imitate anime.

You keep saying subject matter. You do realize you are the only one saying that, right?

I mean, you just said they were 'better'. I have to assume you're talking about the characters and plot which is missing the point hard. I'm not saying old disney cartoons are better because i think a mouse driving a steamboat is more interesting than a vampire hunter. The animation is simply better.

That's because most cartoons are targeted to children

The series is almost finished and they haven't even finished training camp. I'm guess they're banking on fujoshi money to fund a second season

Hello, /int/eresting people! You dont know me, but i need help. The fact is that I created my Anonym's imageboard. I need friends. Forgive me for the unexpected invasion. Now my board very small. The Internet is the only thing that makes me happy in this life. Life in my country is sad. Very sad. Angry people, dirty streets, high price and taxes - it's in the nature of things
. I just need friendship to make life better. I ask the admin not to delete it. If you agree to friendship, we can get links our sites in header/frameset/banners. I'll put the name under the spoiler so as not to disturb others. Sorry for my anglish. Maybe f-friends?

case in point; the JoJo fanbase is horrible

"cartoon" refers to something…well, aimed at kids; it's the kind of (mostly) episodic stuff you'd see playing on the TV on a saturday morning. I'm not saying anime is something "for mature people", but there is a load of difference. Not all animation is "cartoons", either.
