    Thumbs down Americans new anime is crap, what do you think?

    I was watching the cartoon network and a new series of transformers was on, OMG it was so rubbish I had to change the channel. Why do the Americans do that to classic Anime.

    Does anyone have ideas or examples of this?
    Sextus Empiricus advises that we should suspend judgment about virtually all beliefs, that is, we should neither affirm any belief as true nor deny any belief as false.

    Pyrrho stated that "nothing is in itself true or false. It only appears so. In the same way, nothing is in itself good or evil. It is only opinion, custom, law, which makes it so."

    Americans created a new Transformers? I thought Transformers was all originally Japanese.

    P.S. Japanese new anime can be crap too.

    I hate that cartoon (I will not refer to it as anime, it insults anime), the character design is freakin horrible, I saw the first 10 min. of an episode, never watched it again. The story from the small amount of the episode I saw was retarded.

    HORRIBLE CARTOON!!!!

    Avatar is better than any anime I have seen. I don't know why people classify it as anime.

    Some american cartoons are good and some aren't so much. I saw that one transformer cartoon and I wasn't too entertained simply because I don't like any of the original transformers: I like beast wars. That one "sonic x" cartoon was total crap. However the older one with grounder and the chicken was awesome.

    Its cause anime is the most wide spread and mainstream out there. They are just trying to get part of the cash cow.

    You know, hundreds of anime are produced every year. Only a handful are good. Even less make it to the U.S. I think Japan does worse to anime then America ever could.

    I think Japan does some unique pieces of anime.
    Now I might not be fond with some of the story lines, but Japanese animation is far more unique.

    Cartoon Network is Adult Swim, which has excellent Anime, but I won't count those.

    The good American "anime":
    These used to be on there... One Peice, and DragonBall Z.

    Sonic X (it's not technically on CN, but it's still an anime)

    Hmm I don't know but I must say. I somehow hate all new american cartoons etc. /Anime from america. I think they should make it all drawn again. Like Animals of farthing wood it's epic. And looks nicer then nowdays cartoons. I think pc's screwed up the art a bit. xd

    Anime is Japanese Cartoons, isn't it???

    My point is that the Japanese stuff has better plots, better Graphics/drawings, better stories. Overall, Japanese animation is better than American crap... most of the time...

    Listen America isn't Japan.I'm not going to move to Japan just because they have better cartoons.We are completely diffrent countries.Anime isn't even a quarter of America's economy despite the conventions.{Cheap-skates}

    To be fair, Samurai Pizza Cats is a thousand times more entertaining than Kyatto Ninden Teyandee, the original anime. Plus you can't even blame them for rewriting the entire thing, the folks Saban bought it off of never supplied them with transcripts.

    Better plots? Better stories?
    Those are the same thing.

    Also, "better story" is more fitting, when you consider that most anime is the same crap, different title.
    I don't hate anime, but in reality, I understand how lame and cheesy it is. Most of all anime is just a melodrama that plays on your emotions.

    American cartoons aren't much better, but they aren't worse either.

    Okay, I see people seperating the terms anime from cartoons. Stop that.
    Japanese cartoons arn't better than Western ones. Not to mention that western influence is what spawned Japanese comics anyway.

    I saw the Transformers Animated show and I was irritated with it. But I do like Megatron's look. Though I only saw him as a disembodied head. Cool head though.
    (I thought that Hasbro was an American company. And Hasbro birthed Transformers)

    I do think that cartoon network is rolling downhill in quality fast. Only two good shows in the passed four years are Chowder and Flapjack.
    But they are pretty funny and make up for the poor excuse for everything else on that channel.
    That includes Naruto.

    The fights in Avatar are pretty. The characters are funny and the voice actors sound believable. Unlike most dubbed Japanese cartoons.

    Cartoons are animated objects, ect. Anime and cartoons are just ways
    of identifying a drawing. Also I saw in a anime documentry that anime was inspired from the atomic war that was experienced in Japan. I'd post links, but I'm too tired. x.x

    Anime as we know it today is the animated form of a branch of illustration created by Osamu Tezuka, who found inspiration/based his work on the styles of Walt Disney. The whole general style in itself has been around for centuries, but the art style we know as "anime" and "manga" is based off of old Walt Disney works.

    Actually, Transformers are a product of Japanese toymaker Takara(which merged with TOMY a couple of years ago), Hasbro just distributes it internationally.

    Just clearing that up.

    I liked Afro Samurai. And Megas XLR.

    And I always thought of Anime as the art-style, not where it came from. Otherwise, you should consider all the anime and manga from Korea/China not a part of the whole..thing.
