I think because of it's artwork is more beautiful and it attracts more of us now than cartoons that are less in depth and for younger audiences, because when I was little I loved american cartoons but now i'm into anime and anime just seems a whole lot cooler.

1. At one time at least, anime used a color palatte that had over 300 colors more than those used in American cartoons, I'm not sure how this compares now, anyone else?

2. Anime is more often found that is written for audiences of all tastes and ages and in a broader context than just closed genres like humor or action.

3. American cartoons are less often about daily life in America, except in obvious parody. Watching some anime can teach people small facts about Japanese culture, even if these facts are sometimes distorted.

4. Anime is often created intentionally to appeal to audiences outside of Japan in a way many western cartoons seem unable to do.

5. Anime usually have more characters and explore character interaction in more complex situations than other cartoons. Due to stylized conventions the characters are often more dynamic in appearance as well; costumes and hair especially are much more remarkable.

6. Visually, anime is often both more detailed and more polished, or finished looking.

I could go on but why? Others have made good points too, as in anything like this, it is all just a matter of taste or preference.

i think anime is better because you can actually relate to it and the situations are more adult than cartoons
and they're actually good storylines

anime brings more genres, more genres gives you more options, cartoons gives you the option of stay quiet thinking about nonsense topics

I think they're both on the same level. People say Japanese animation has stories, but there's nothing wrong with episodic cartoons. Having a story doesn't make it better, it just depend how the show itself pulls through.
Generally, I watch American cartoons to make me laugh (unless it's something serious like Batman or something more serious) even if it doesn't develop unless it's a movie. Generally, I watch anime for the development. I just enjoy both because it entertains me.

I like my fair share of cartoons, but anime is just better imo. Try finding me a cartoon equivalent of Monster or Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

there are three parts and I am not taking his side if anyone thinks that


just using you're link the quote isn't really meant for you but for all

on this link i've seen all 3 of his videos and i get his point

about the mouth, I'll assume it is his main problem, the flapping -_- anyways people might say it is an excuse but honestly I am READING note READING the sub titles rather then notice the characters mouths moving.

i mean he said anime is defined as: to bring to life ok it might be that definition but honestly

if you're paying so much attention on the mouth movements rather then do you really grasp what the anime/cartoon is really trying to tell you?

I'll add this one last thing to the mouth flap mostly bias but true: if american cartoons has the mouth movements down and the drawing still suck ass i believe the japanese is entitled the lesser mouth movement because their art rapes americans

ooo and before someone else says this if anime fans hate american cartoons because it isn't as nice that is simply wrong.

BUT if you hate american cartoons for their story thats another story...

take family guy when it first came out it was pretty good i thought it was funny... but then it gets to a point where they show peter *lead character* getting hurt and staying in that position for 3 minutes that gets repetitive.

simpsons is just too long now like naruto bleach

south park is vulgar but funny

futurama is awesome why it isn't the animation or the drawing the story is simply great

but i'll conclude my ranting

- Some anime have better voice acting. Not naming any anime, but there's some I'd rather hear in english because of one or two characters that have bad voice actors.
- There's less animation in most anime
