>Is Avatar: The Last Airbender Anime?
Anime is THIS mainstream. How do you feel about it?
I feel bad.
I don't care.
before you take this guy seriously please note he made this
Get the fuck out of here.
Also, you're Kino, right? I love you.
The koreans animated it like every other anime so obviously it is.
reported for not anime
Great, another entry-level douche who thinks he has sufficient knowledge to discuss this.
Being popular among weeaboos and other losers doesn't mean it's mainstream or at all respected.
If Avatar is anime, then a boatload of TMS and Toei-animated shows are.
can't even watch without thinking about how much cbt this guy must engage in
I don't know who this is but I really want to punch that face.
I bet he is British
Thanks for reigniting my rage for people who take a shitty double loanword like anime too seriously.
Isn't Korra shit? Why do so many people think so highly of it.
"Are Avatar deniers protecting their own cultural turf from noobs?"
Hey, that's us!
Also includes pretty much every poster in this thread, by the way.
The guy is right, Avatar is stylistically and tonally very similar to anime. However, that's not really the point. Even if Avatar is outside of the genre of American cartoons, it does have one thing in common with the Regular Show and Adventure Time. They are bad because they, unlike MLP, take the worst of children's cartoons and more serious works. They take from children's cartoons a complete lack of subtlety that not even children appreciate. It bludgeons you with how you are supposed to feel instead of showing something emotion-provoking and allowing you to develop your own feelings toward it.
At the same time, it borrows the atrocious humor ever-present in western cartoons. Anyone who has watched the show and later dropped it will agree with me that the show's humor falls incredibly flat, especially in the case of the cabbage guy.
Regardless of Avatar's merits, this argument is asinine. Arguing over whether a children's series fits in a media genre identified by a poor engrish translation of the word which describes drawn video is silly.
Isn't he the same smug hipster dickhead who did that "Are videogames racist?" video?
>cartoons a complete lack of subtlety
Looks like somebody hasn't watched cartoons at all. And anime is seldom subtle, and when it is it involves Japanese-only injokes an outsider will never understand that's similar to British humor, but everyone understands britbongs.
