listen to what i have to say....if you dont like avatar....dont watch avatar btu why try and get it removed when ALOT of other people love avatar...unless you have some sort of "pride" in only true anime being on here in whitch case...you are not worth speaking to.

well this is an anime site made for japanese cartoons and other asian treats for us to watc and usually good ones @ that BUT last time i checked avatar wasnt under either one of those catagories and not everyone loves this show....probabaly about 10 of you do and thats hardly and overwhelming consensus
if we let avatar on why wouldnt someone try to upload teen titans or ....that spy girl show..whatever

I think that it should not be one here, not only for the fact that it is american. It is owned by nick, and this is the exact version that they own, it even has the logo in the corner of the episodes. If we can not upload things that are even remotely owned by ADV then why is this non-anime on here. Don't get me wrong... Avitar is one of the only american cartoons I watch, but we are opening so many doors just by it being here that should have never been opened.

1. It is american, not just dubbed american, 100% American.
2. It is owned by a major company that 100% owns, made, and payed for it.
3. It is a dub, not that thats such a bad thing, but there was never an origional Japanese version.
4. If Avitar is on here people could argue that they could upload Teen Titans, WITCH, Totaly Spies, and all that other stuff like that.
5. Some have argued that it is made in South Korea, making it Anime. A lot of animation is made in South Korea, but it would not be accepted on here... With this arguement someone could say Family Guy, or American Dad was an Anime...

Well theres my 2 cents.

once again does it being on the site bother you? because of that whole on screenshot you have to look at while searching through the animes? i mean seriously how does it hurt you to have it on there? if some people like it then its nice for some people but you guys juhst want it removed because you dont like other people to enjoy it?

To be honest i like to watch it every once and awhile. That is not the point of it. Weither you like it or not has no baring on weither it should be on here or not. The issue is the liceness on it and its not jap. Thats the only thing you should be really thinking about and not what you think about the serries itself.

I wish you guys would keep this argument to one board.

Honestly, as long as this site is up, there will always be the chance that the site will be sued. Don't put the entire blame on Avatar. Eventually there will be enough anime on this site for legal action to take place.

Also, Japanese animation originated from Europe and the US. The Japanese changed it and made it into their own. It is only natural for other countries to take Japanese animation and adapt it to their own styles. That is exactly what the Japanese did.

While I will admit that these American animation shows should not be labeled as anime, they are influenced by the style and there is nothing wrong with that. Therefore these shows should be classified as 'anime influenced'. I disagree with people who only say that shows such as Avatar should not be labeled as anime because the show is not Japanese. You people forget that anime is a Japanese word and is translated into English as 'animation'. The translation is not 'Japanese animation'. The definition as 'Japanese animation' has only been put into place because of people who forget this.

What I find most amusing about this argument is that I know Japanese people who think Avatar is a good show. You people aren't even Japanese and are complaining about it. You are basically being "Wapanese" for a lack of a better word.

And those whose arguments say something along the lines of "Avatar is like Pokemon it's repetitive and lame" are also wrong. I doubt you have watched the show if you claim this. The show has no fillers (unlike Pokemon, Naruto, etc). Every episode deals with furthering the story or character development. It is not a 100+ episode show. Also, if you didn't notice, a lot of anime is directed towards children. Of course shows such as Avatar will be "childish". It is because the show is directed towards children.


Btw, I did not say it should be classified as anime just because it was made in South Korea. But I was pointing out that some anime is made in South Korea and is still classified as anime. If you are going to be biased against some animation, you must be consistent.
