  1. This question has been on my mind for a long time now so I'm going to ask you guys. Anime is popular with alot of people right? and alot of people are good at drawing it then why do you never hear or see of anime shows that aren't made by japanese people (no offense to the japanese) is it because they don't go into the industry and decide to take on a different career? or are they not allowed because they're not japanese? there are a few that are pretty close to anime like Martin Mystery and Totally spies but they're still not dead on anime.
     
  2. It's because most of the ones that are made are utter shit. Next question?

    Most of the ones made that actually look something like anime but are made by non-japanese people are french. Code Lyoko being an excellent example. :p Other than that, meh. Tons of crap.

    Heh... Well, I had a nice rant written out to answer your question but I think I'll give you a link instead: http://www.mit.edu/~rei/Expl.html

    I'm glad that it addresses one of the major points I wanted to get across: anime-styled art =/= an Anime, and all anime is not "big eyes" and "over-exaggerated expressions" like you would see in these pseudo-anime series'. If anything, that's the stereo-type of it :p
     
  5. Code lyoko is for anime haters...it is the worst anime ever!! I hated it and thats why its not good and has no good fans....And most of anime created by japanese is very good the only ones I don't like is the ones that are always pornographic not like pokemon or inuyasha (inuyasha may be perverted sometimes but its not pronographic and inuyasha and pokemon are not the only ones that I only watch...)
     
  6. Yah I heard about french anime and how it's getting popular especially with that movie Fantastic Planet or something like that. Anyway Teletoon is bringing a new serise to their channel called Spider Riders, now I've seen a preview and intro to this show and saw it was an anime show. I then did quick research on it and found out it was made in Canada! this show looks EXACTLY like Japanese anime it's scary......in a good way! I can't wait to see it's debut on March 25. Oh! and thanks for the link info Linkachu.
     
  7. Anime is very popular because that alot of shows we know and love are anime such as pokemon...Pokemon was a great hit but the years that have passed it doesn't have the great adventures and everyones vocie has changed...Many people hate anime also if you think about it anime isn't all that big unless you go to an anime convetion thats when anime gets scary!!! :o If you watch adult swim and toonami all the shows (well most re anime)
     
  8. MQ has a point anime is very popular in america and very many people watch it like me!!! ;D
     
  9. Hey again, it's your good friend Chibi here.

    It really amazes me that you were stupid enough to think I wouldn't find out that you were a double account. Stop spamming and fuck off.

    For anyone else reading this, Meowth_Queen_101 and DarkLugia are the same person. They've also got another thing in common: they've both been banned.
