Also, Cool World and Wizards would like to have a discussion with you about 'cartoons are for kids'



Ha, am I not the only one who likes "Wizards, a movie that was a little ahead of its time.. Not much of a fan of "Cool World", but it did have a good ending. Ralph Bakshi tends to be hit or miss. And now for those people who say anime is for kids? How about making them watch "Attack on Titanl" or "Cross Ange"? Will they say animes for kids then?


Anime tends to be for teens if we're totally honest. Depending on how old you are that might count as 'kids' ><

I might have said it before, but the whole basis for the 'anime isn't cartoon argument' seems to be that people have internalized these prejudices they have about cartoons, and need to differentiate anime so they can keep those prejudices intact.

Someone who "KNOWS" that cartoons are for kids but enjoys anime has to either examine that gut *KNOW* feeling or differentiate the 2.

Teens these days are often called young adults, though that term could also apply to people in their early 20s. And true, a lot of the late night anime is aimed at young adults and have mature themes.

Also anime focuses more on the actual plot/story than cartoons do!
