Amen to all of that, brother.
We've got a similar guy at work who simply *worships* Anime, and will be the first person to tell you that any American character or animated sequence was inspired by this or that anime series. Please. Simply put, he bugs the hell out of the rest of us, and makes those of us who appreciate anime look bad (i.e. if I mention that I think TMS is possibly the best TV production studio in the world--based on quality of animation, I get some knee-jerk reactions, especially from Jon ;)
I was glad to hear that the Japanese find strength in American animation (albeit for different reasons) as much as Americans find inspiration from anime. Sometimes I get the impression that they don't care much for what we produce here. I'm especially interested in what they thought of Iron Giant.
At any rate, I just wanted to say your reaction was spot-on. Thanks for the cool-headed thinking to an obviously fan-based comment.
