I had to go do a password recovery after 3 years cos i forgot my password just to say this is most likely the most stupid thing i've read in a while, the animation of anime may not be real, but most of them show what this world could lead to or how it is, most show real deal emotional stuff. Yes some are just about enjoyment but theres nothing wrong with that at all, saying basic games on dramas?!?! c'mon dramas really?

The worst thing to happen to Castlevania was the art shift into anime. That is a series that does not need it. Even the premature move into 3D with the N64 installments was a better idea than having Charlotte act like a Tsundere, and Hammer acting like a buffoon. Hell, even if those characters stayed the same, with only their art changed, I wouldn't have mind.

Now shut up, because you don't know what your talking about.
Even if the topic is stupid waste of space.
(Silliest ending in Castlevania, but one of the best Classicvanias)

A trolling topic, I assume

This topic is dumb... Japanese Anime is HUGE in Japanese culture. Almost every game from japan at one time has a cartoon/anime version of the character. Including Mario and Link. If you're playing on a Nintendo console (you know... the company from Japan?) or any other video game made in Japan, expect to see an anime character every now and then. If you hate it so much, don't buy the video game.

Anime is an art style and nothing more.
And you really have no idea what you're talking about.
So... I'm going to go ahead and give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're a very, very young troll.

Why do I even bother clicking on forum posts here at GameFaqs? I feel like every post is made by a 5 year old who thinks everything revolves around them.

Or is this a place to vent your anger at something you personally don't like?

Yet, more people seeming to not figure that in general what Anime REALLY is, which isn't really surprising, knowing what anime TRULY is, it is hard, it took years of spending time with both to really know what the difference is, what really seperates these items is not the art, but something a little more.. well of depth.

Look I'm a cartoonist, and I work on my own webcomic, I have worked on making games, and I have my own anime I am making and have been for over 20 years making it it's own, I have plans to eventually start it as well once everything is put together well enough.

Look anime and cartoons from a purely artistic side of the art work itself is fundimentally the same. Head, Body, Arms, and Legs. Design choices make them what they are.

Let me give an example maybe to put it more clearly if I can.

Take for example, what makes Bugs Bunnys and Ren and Stimpy different form each other? Other then Art? nothing, they are basically cartoons, but what makes them "Cartoons?" it's not the art as much as the content of the them, You see bugs bunny and you see a rabbit, when you watch an episode of Bugs Bunny, you see a 7 minute joke, nothing really more. That's really as deep as Looney Toons got, same with Ren and Stimpy, the world was a long 7-14 minute joke.

They never evolve, their concept is straight forward and always the same. That is what really makes them cartoons. Now I'm not saying that because they are short is what makes them cartoons, it's their content.

Next, take something like Popeye and Astroboy, now honestly both have unique character designs, but technically, the art to design their characters is basically the same, anatomy doesn't change THAT drastically, The body is the same. What makes them is their depth, the world they come from, Astroboys world is alive, constantly changing and telling a story, popeye is about 7 minute jokes where the characters don't evolve past their base, they stay the same, it's not about a story being told or a world discovered.

Most when they think anime seem to think it's all about big hair and big eyes, well if that true then about everything out there is technically ANIME, Disney Movies, Warner Brothers, Dream Works, Everything they do could be consider anime, due to just the art style and design, Hell if you where to take Doopy form Snow and the Seven dwarves, you could make Krillin form his design, you could make Bulma from Snow White's Design.

Fundimentally they are the Same, no what makes Anime, well ANIME, is it's designs have depth, they are crafted from the worlds they exist, the character design alone tells a story of a world, that design changes not due to a new artist styles doing the cartoon, their design changes from the world itself, the events that happen, and how it changes them and the others around them.

Anime is not something as simple as an art style in the way of how they are drawn, but what the design tells of the character and the world, how it changes. It's very hard to put what I'm trying to say into words. I'm sure some will understand, others will see me as if I was speaking gibberish, I'm not, it's just hard to define what anime is, but it isn't based of the art style alone, it's based off the design, and the depth the design and world it describes.

And due to this I see "Cartoons" like Kids next Door, and Adventure time, as more of anime then cartoons, the characters evolve, and change from the world,just like a real anime would do. So that's what I have to say.

And if this is a Joke topic, well then my comment still stands...

western cartoons:shows like strawberry shortcake and mlp anime:shows like bleach and dbz

how many anime can you think aimed entirely at 6 year olds? there are good cartoons like the simpsons but there few and far between.

and lol at claiming anime is responsible for every cliche'

when these cliche'd existed long before animation in general did.


Hamtaro, Card Captor Sakura, Doraemon, Anpanman, Sailor Moon, all Ghibli movies, Pokemon, Digimon, Soul Eater, Yugioh, Naruto, One Piece, Dragonball, Yu yu hakusho, Angelic Layer, Inuyasha, and the like are all marketed to the under 10 age group in Japan. So in other words...most popular anime is aimed at young kids, just like many cartoons in the west are aimed at young kids! So yeah.

As for good cartoons, I can admit I don't watch many cartoons, Japanese or otherwise anymore. However, there are The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Adventure Time, Jumanji the animated series, Rugrats, Futurama, South Park, most Disney and Pixar movies, etc. that are good.

Heck, with each new season of Adventure Time I wonder how it could be a kids' show.

And even though Adventure


When I have a kid, they're not watching half of those till they're at least 15 and can prove they can be mature about them. Anyone letting 10 and under watch Soul Eater, InuYasha, Yuyu Hakusho, etc. are poor parents.
