Seems like a legitimate opinion but I would argue that Japanimation was far superior up until the point the USA bombed the masculinity out of the Japanese, at which point the started making Hello Kitty, schoolgirls, and story lines that go on forever without anything happening in them.

You're talking about subject matter, not animation quality, and you're still wrong. Japan loses out to walt disney in that case.
In animation, east vs west is a question of detail vs fluidity, and it's a fight fluidity always wins.
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.
>The only reason cartoons aren't widely regarded as better than anime is the "cartoons are for children" mentality in the west
That's because most cartoons are targeted to children
