Anime in the US. Good or Bad?
Posted 11/16/08 , edited 11/16/08
Okay, so I'm almost done with my paper(I'm in college by the way). My annoying professor resist that I should have opinion from people who loves Anime.

Okay people, I need your opinion on this.

Is Anime good in the US?

For instance, (after my poll) American audiences watch more Anime than American cartoons such as Disney characters, Marvel cartoons(X-Men, Avengers, etc.), DC cartoons(Batman, Superman, etc.). Now comes Avatar, that represents more Anime than American cartoon. After I asked so many moms, majority was to ban Anime because of the influence on it to their children such as Naruto, Bleach, Death Note. And also those moms more recommends Family Guy and South Park than Naruto.

When I went to Comic-Con International last July. I asked so many Marvel and DC fans. They said Anime shouldn't be ban but it shouldn't be bigger than American cartoons. They said that American producers and licensee prefer more Japanese made cartoons than their own American cartoons. That they should put more focus on American media.

My paper's title is: Anime dominating Disney, Marvel comics, and DC comics.

Of course your name/username will be added to my resources.

What do you mean, exactly? The importation of it, American attempts to produce it, the impact of it, etc.?

I like Anime from Japan.
I dislike how they talk in english in a japanese anime in the US.
Thats why I watch stuff in japanese with english subs.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I would say it isn't
good.

HOW THE HELL DO THEY RECOMMEND FAMILY GUY AND SOUTH PARK MORE THEN NARUTO??!?!??!?!?! they have way more dodgy jokes and swearing and stuff in them compared to naruto. I haven't seen much of naruto but still, it doesn't have anything bad at all in it unless they show the uncut version over there.

it's good that they embraced something from japan but it's not my problem nor my concern . . .

Because they didn't want their children to walk on walls and water.

Just a suggestion, since you want to get some feedback instead of tons of pages saying "OMG anime is the shit" and so on. Move this over to the E.D. section.

Anime is japan's revenge for hiroshima and nagasaki.
It's kind of like a cultural virus.
Fucks everything it comes in contact with.
It's already spreading at an rapid rate.
If you look out your window, I guarantee you there will be white girls chanting "kawaii ne ^-^" on the street.

I remember when I was young(like 6 or 7) my mom told me not to mention sailor moon or any other anime because she said that the other moms don't like it and they though it would put bad influence on their kids.. now I can understand people not wanting their children to watch death note or code geass or u no the more mature animes but, srsly? I mean naruto and sailor moon and all are just for kids and their harmless their like snow white. Honestly if they took the time to actually research anime and maybe watch a couple of episodes of the kid anime then I don't think they would think it would be a bad influence
