Wasn't the left show at least partially animated by a Japanese studio?

>>100285987
The first avatar series was made by several Korean studios.

>>100285814
Anime as we know it adopted a certain style and way of animating things in order to lower costs. Not sure what the one on the left is, but after Astro Boy and the rise of TV anime there was quite a big difference between Disney 2D and anime since Disney put huge budgets into their shows and made smoothness of animation a big priority.

Yes, and for that reason Disney (DISNEY!! YES, DISNEY, THE MOST POPULAR ANIMATION COMPANY OF THE FUCKING WORLD) to sell Marvel shit (MARVEL!! BEST HEROES ACCORDING THE REST OF THE PLANET) has had to create a specific series to sell its product in Japan, even when they have been doing animation series about these characters from the 60's.

The same applies to specific Disney characters. Stich (from "Lilo & Stich") is very popular in Japan because he resembles a typical anime character .. still, a specific series made in Japan had to be created for him, when the rest of the world, "Lilo & Stich" had another television series in the Occidental style.

It was making it's way before those movies you mentioned. Titan AE, was possibly the last animated movie Fox made.
And it was not just 3D. 2D animation watchers were also looking for more mature stuff like the stuff Japan was providing. Titan AE, for example, wanted to be mature but without sex, blood or a complex plot, that's why it was a flop, it was boring.

You forget that they win Oscars, which means they're REAL movies, so they're obviously way more mature than silly 2D children's cartoons. Pixar/Dreamworks/Disney movies always have those handful of emotional drama scenes all at the same moments in the screenplay because they know how well it works.

And even if they're still kids movies, and even if the artstyle is incredibly unrealistic and cartoonish, they're still done in 3D which is "realer". It's less embarrassing for normalfags who don't want to admit they watch cartoons (even if they watch Simpsons and Family Guy on TV).

It's clear people still want that now too, but nobody even tries providing it. It's so lacking that AT is praised for pushing the boundaries. You'd think with some of the violent anime shounens that got really popular in the west over the past decade, it would've shown that there was a home audience for the stuff, for teens at least. Can you imagine if some studio saw SNK's internet popularity and said "hey let's make an action show with lots of killing and drama and stuff"? But censorship, would be too expensive to do in western style, network control, etc...the industry just isn't set up that way. And then some will try and get a neutered but at least serialized plot like Avatar and a cancelled show like Symbiotic Titan, and a few other failed cancelled projects along the road. At least there's Venture Bros and Archer I guess.

I guess almost the same can be said for comics/manga and the huge gap in popularity with the youth they have. And then you get all those terrifying comics that try to have an anime artstyle...

Western animation might benefit from having a niche "otaku" market to support some shows, to at least be able to pull away from total network control. But then I guess it'd just turn the comics industry, ie. 99% capes. And western traditional animation is just way too expensive for anything but large companies to fund and control it for fear of losses.

No, you are comparing seasonal anime with a high budget movie bro. You have to compare it with Japanese high budget cinema movies as well.

Then all this board would be about Ghibli and Disney.

Neither are we here for edgy political thrillers or macho action cartoons or experimental acid trips. It's the eyes, the girls, the culture, and the power of nakama that make us forgive everything else. Sure they have been abusing it for a while, but occasionally they hit on some good plot or decent comedic setting. And girls never get old.

Anime is the only kind of fiction besides literature that I consume, because even if it's in a slump right now, what it offers can't be found anywhere else. I've also found that serious fiction demands attention, while cute girls are healing after a day at work. In related news, people with lots of free time prefer big classics books and going through the western canon, while scientists and programmers just prefer scifi.

I think he was referring to overall talent-pool. Where Canadian artists and animators get bought out all the time to work at pretty high tier works overseas.

Though I do agree, Canada hasn't done shit on its own
>>
>>100299588
I've noticed that dubs are the worst when the show has young girls. Their voices are always awful. Adult males are dubbed much better.
>>
>>100299751
Still poorly. Because people doing dubs aren't usually voice actors. They are "dub actors", the bottom of the barrel.

Not everything needs a celebrity cast like Ghibli, but whenever anime dips more into the real voice acting market for actors (a la, Bebop, Steve Blum, etc.) it makes all the difference.

American and European cartoons are made partially in Korea too. And I think Americans and Europeans started this trend way earlier than Japanese.
>>
>>100289132
Do you know that American and European cartoons are made partially in Korea as well?
>>
>>100289132
Here for you:

"The art of Korean animation, or Han-guk Manhwa Aenimeisyeon (한국 만화 애니메이션), has gone from hand-held flip books in early times to studios that produce most of the work for major American animation companies and Collaboration/Minor Contribution contract for Japanese animation companies. The South Korean animation industry can be considered dynamic in that there are around 120 animation studios, mostly competing with some of the larger studios that throw smaller studios by way of overseas export market (OEM) work. Notable examples of Korean animation include all episodes of Hey Arnold, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Legend of Korra, and Justice League Unlimited[1] which were made and drawn in Seoul, South Korea. While it is mostly firms in South Korea that contract with Western studios, some of the work is reported to be subcontracted to North Korea as well.[1]"

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_animation
>>
>>100307124

You can say that Western companies (specially American) used Korean studios more than Japanese companies.
>>
>>100286664
First: it's made in Korea, it's not American (according to some guys' logic here).
Second: it's shit, overall.
