Just wanted to know what you guys think about American anime? I'm not talking about just any old cartoons, but shows that where made in America that have an anime influence. I've been watching rwby and its not bad, also I've watched Avatar and The Legend of Korra and loved them both. I cant wait to watch season 2 of Korra next month. Also I remember watching IGPX when I was younger and enjoying it. I only recently learned that Cartoon Network co-produced it with Production IG. Also, believe it or not, The Boondocks was anime influenced. I love the show because its funny as hell and some of the stuff they talk about is true. I'm black but I've only been living in black culture for about 2 years, still a lot of the stuff that is said and done on The Boondocks really is a part of black culture. Anyway, post some of the American anime you've watched an talk about whether or not you like them and think they can grow.

READY...SET...

The fine line between anime(Japan) and cartoons(America) Is Beavis and Butthead along the same genre as Excel Saga or Panty and Stocking.I think so!

IGPX!!!

A racing anime about about robots duking on the race course, and its rip-off yu gi oh 5ds dueling while on motor cycles, the most dangerous sport in the world. I mean they aren't watching the road.

seriously igpx is pretty good.

I couldn't agree more. And RWBY is just getting started. I think you could include Adventure Time with Finn and Jake in the mix too, because of it's Western brand of quirky comedy, and outrageous animation sequences. A lot of the Nicktoons series aside from the rebroadcasts of Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Oddparents episodes kind of remind me of anime. Like Huntik, Iron Man Adventures, and the ill fated Voltron Force come to mind. And also Tron Uprising, MotorCity and of course Gargoyles: the animated series, For me it was about the presentation and the quality of the story. I can't forget about Symbionic Titan, and Samurai Jack.

Avatar, Boondocks and Ben 10 were all widely successful. But one thing about the U.S. is that we love reruns. So no real pressure to make more episodes when the old ones bring in good ratings at zero cost to the networks.

I think France does a good job too.

I don't consider ATLA or LoK as anime, only influenced by it.

I've never seen American anime, but I do love some American cartoons.

I remember that show called Totally Spies, it was basically anime. The style can't be dumped together with regular cartoons.
Is Teen Titans American or Japanese? I remember the opening used to be in Japanese before it got translated.
Robotech is also a legit American anime.
All of these were pretty good, even better than some modern Japanese anime.

I loved Teen Titans and it was an American show but was heavily influenced by anime. Totally Spies is a French/American show that is also anime inspired and I'm reading on the internet that season 6 of the show is premiering on Cartoon Network next month. If its true I will be watching because I did enjoy the show when I was younger.

I think this is a great direction for American cartoons. Most U.S. cartoons are non linear and have no real storyline, like SpongeBob and the such. While I love cartoons, those that do have a real story line have a chance to become very successful since they leave the viewer wanting to see what happens next it makes kids want to tune in! And something like that is CRITICAL to keep children tuning in.

So I think if creators make more "American Anime" it exposes kids to a more mature and intelligent storyline and style of storytelling than normal cartoons, and they can even act as a gateway to other anime!

Sorry but Robotech is not a legit American anime. Its an import heavily altered to be accepted by American culture in the mid to late 80's.

Actually IGXP came out before yugioh 5d's. IGPX was a toonami creation back in 2003 during Toonami's initial run. yugioh 5d's didn't come out til 2008.
