The main point is that animation is animation. No matter where it comes from. To ignore advances in ANY industry just because of some imaginary line drawn on a map would be an ignorant act on any professional or enthusiast's part.

: If you think American animators don't care about what's happening in anime, then you don't know what the hell you're talking about. I and all the other American animators who come to this board would appreciate it if you'd keep these kind of comments to yourself. All it does is tell us that you're someone whom we shouldn't take seriously.
: I was watching "Astroboy" long before you were probably born. I was drawing the character from memory in grade school. I'd run home to catch "Tobor the 8 Man", "Speed Racer" and "Gigantor". As a professional, I was into "Crusher Joe" and "Lensman" even though I had no idea what was being said.
: You don't speak for us, you don't know us, you're obviously not in the business and you have no idea what we like or what we're into.
