The difference is culture. The similarity is the human condition

I can explain this from the perspective of the psycho-cultural perspective: the east asian have a collectivist culture so they emphasize holistic processing while the westerners have the analytic processing of the individualist culture. In the holistic processing which focus on inter-relation, the object cannot be analyzed separately from their surrounding so the surronding also get included in the picture. The analytic processing analyze the object separately from their surrounding so the surrounding are negated in the picture.

i have noticed that about Anime vs Western Cartoons. Even the best western cartoons really neglect certain background aspects or even blur them. Anime has these amazing backgrounds.
