You know that what he said isn't actually that far off being pretty true, and that the only reason you're both pulling the 'b8' card is the
>anime is for more mature audiences
Line, which isn't entirely wrong, however admittedly it is not as true nowadays.
Certainly it is true for western audiences, but of course that is because western anime counterpart would be cartoons which is what the younger people watch.

Anime does that shit all the time too. If they're going to copy and paste the same four models/poses, the least they can fucking do is not make them physically detailless blobs.

Whether it be anime or cartoons, something that drives me mad to no end is when someone will screencap a scene to point out how bad it looks when it's the kind of detail you'd never notice when the animation is moving. That's the whole point of animation "cheating", you use the fact that we cannot freeze frame things in our mind to create the illusion of movement. Personally I always applaud animation studios that use the minimalist model technique efficiently to portray multiple things on screen at the same time.

Easy there mate, I'm just saying not everyone thinks that buying merchandise of a character constitutes a relationship. Not to mention it detracts somewhat from actually discussing anime since it's usually just a thread full of "isn't _____ great?!" without any actual debate on things like plot, styles, music, or settings. It's blatant character worship more suited to the likes of Tumblr or deviantArt than 4chan.

But that's just one probably insecure anon's opinion, so don't let whatever nonsense I say bug you.

I didn't say I wanted to post cartoons, just talk about stuff like how X studio made a reference to X series. Many of my favourite series are collaborations between western and eastern animation styles. Especially in the 90's when almost anything amblin put out (tiny Toons, Batman, Animaniacs) was animated in Japan at some point.

I'm sorry, I can understand if you disagree with my views but I hardly think that appropriate punctuation and trying to legitimately create constructive discussion constitutes as a "shitpost"

Although if that's your view I think we might already have witnessed the prowess of your ability to actually engage in debate like a sentient human being.

Anyways, changing gears with this fun factoid: Spider-Man's japan series was the first Super Sentai hero to use a giant robot.

The only major difference I note between anime and western cartoons is that western cartoons tend to exhibit much more world-wide cultural influences while Anime seems to keep to it's own Japanese culture more often than not.

Probably why the go to reference when you want to mock anime in a cartoon is a schoolgirl being violated by tentacles. Even today the majority of animation from Japan demonstrates the laid-back attitudes of Japanese sexual standards and their obsession with the high-school age protagonist.

Japanese sexual standards are completely fucked up. Something like cheap sexualization and weird fetishes are perfectly fine, but two people falling in love and kissing is too for them.

NOUN
[MASS NOUN]
a style of Japanese film and television animation, typically aimed at adults as well as children. Compare with manga.

Origin:

1980s: Japanese, shortened from animēshon, based on English animation.

>>101742684
maybe the modern ones because they want to appeal to waifufags and narutoshiteaters
>>
>>101741939

That's because barely anyone knows shit about animation, myself included. Just look at the QUALITY threads, most people can't tell bad animation and animation techniques apart.

>>101742744
It's not fucked up. It's the result of Americanized attitudes about sexuality being the norm for most of the mainstream society, but almost any Asian culture has a long history of kinky sexy stuff. India's worse than Japan when you consider they produced the Kama Sutra.

Yes but the average Japanese citizen is either impartial or disapproving of them. Behind closed doors Japan's attitude on sexuality is generally "whatever", but out in public it's incredibly conservative. Hell, America is the country that invented BD/SM's most essential element: leather costumes.

You serious? Cartoons are made for children. Save for a few exceptions like family guy, which is for 14 year olds who still think fart jokes are funny. Anime generally is more diverse and there's a lot to see, it's less restrictive too since nips don't treat it as a children's medium and aren't afraid of diving into controversial territories.

I watch anime for the social aspect.

If /a/ didn't exist I wouldn't watch anime, it's like being part of something, especially if you have no friends in real life. You get a sense of belonging from sharing the laughs or the tears or the rage with other people on 4chan
90% of the enjoyment derived from anime comes from discussing it with other people, by itself it's kind of shitty.

So until I get friends I'll keep watching anime.
