Honestly there is difficulty with comparison.

BATS and Justice League are at the high end of story telling for cartoons. And are among st the few shows that put emphasis on story telling and story arcs and more mature storylines that are sorely lacking in western animation.

Where as anime has broader genres and content(and quality)


It is easier to not compare the 2 because "cartoons" are hampered by the animation is for kids problem that restricts creativity and storytelling.

I love Kuroko but Batman The Animated Series and The Justice League make for too strong a team.

I agree with you about BATS, if Justice League Unlimited was in there I would agree with you too,

But The first Justice League series was just a show about the Justice League and that's it, Justice League Unlimited

however took this to another level.

It tackled the issues of having Superheroes, having a super hero society, and how society feels about it.

It also tackles the issues superheroes have with each other, besides romance you have conspiracy and secrets.

Take a look at this and tell me what you think:

It was still allot better quality then allot of other adaptions I have seen. Animation and stand alone story.....I have been obsessed with animation going back to my childhood in the late eighties.

But yeah unlimited is the better version....they had less executive mandates to deal with.

Bruh anime is just Japanese cartoons. There's no need for debate. I really don't like any of the series posted, but I honestly like Steven Universe more than most anime that I've seen.

Well if Fist of the North Star is included it doesn't matter because cartoons are already dead.

Bleach vs. Animaniacs? Gosh, Eye, you're making this too difficult!!

(Now, if you'd said The Tick, or X-Men:TAS, or something that wasn't a Spielbergian post-Roger Rabbit blight on our 90's US toon culture that drove us to escape to anime...)

I would say it pretty well DEFINED "Forget it, Jake, it's Cartoon Network. "
That, or the time the Powerpuff Girls thought they could get a Movie version.

I don't know about the said shows because other than bleach I haven't watched any. tbh bleach wasn't even that good, I gave up on it.

I would said the top tier fight would be pixar/disney vs ghibli, I would say pixar/disney wins but that is just me. By a lot too.

Honestly I don't watch much TV cartoons that much but do watch animated movies. I feel american animation more has it's foot in movies rather than tv. As for anime it is more TV based. Also it is more of american culture to associate cartoons with kids; example batman live action movie rather than making it a cartoon. That is why you don't see much of mature animation in america.

If you want to fairly compare them I feel like you have to have live action batman and such thrown in there too. He comes from a comic book, and a lot of anime come from comic books (manga).

It's hard to compare because of so many differences.

I don't like any of these shows.

There have been many Western animated series that I have loved and many many Japanese animated series I have loved. I also have had the privilege of watching the original Transformers, which is a wonderful example of a blend of the two.

My favourite anime trump my favourite western shows... but if it was only the posted examples, they both lose
