Why do weeaboos even exist? Why kind of childish, vacuous person do you have to be to watch the average anime show and decide that you want to see more of that? That shit is made for children and hermit manchildren in Japan, and why would you want to be either of those things? How can anyone who's seen a movie like Taxi Driver truly believe that anime is just as good as movies? How can anyone who's seen a television show like The Sopranos truly believe that anime is just as good as television?

I could easily name 50 films that are better than the best anime I've ever seen.

Remember how Hawking is a world leading theoretical physicist and has talked about the possibility of time travel?

Hawkings is actually Bill Gates from the future when he decided to smoke a lot of weed and got the great idea to make a time machine with all his gorillion dollars, then he went back in time and his body became worthless in the process, turning into the button pressing shell of a man we see today.

Though to be frank most of the films in this list are better than almost all anime, but heaven knows how The Dark Knight and Inception made it so high, Nolandrones I suppose

Serious film fans shouldn't use IMDB list.

I know that OP is just a shitty bait, but there still are people who seriously would just go and write shit like that. I really don't understand how the fact that some neckbeards are watching their chinese cartoons can make some people so butthurt.
I mean, why the fuck do they even care? Don't they have some better things to do?

IMDB is strictly good for data (regarding production crews and representation). Well, IMDB PRO I should say. And only as a backup for StudioSystem. Boxofficemojo for simple revenue data.

Two years ago sites like box office mojo would not have excited me as much as they do now. Data is fun.
>>
>>101848709
I'll admit I haven't seen all of them but I've definitely seen at least a third.

I think OP's question is still valid even then. Does anime have something that's more attractive to those people? Or maybe those people do watch TV shows too, like Star Trek, which also has an escapist fanbase? Maybe it's the loli for the pedoes? I know the thing I like in anime compared to other shows is that many things can be animated that otherwise could only be done with CGI in live action. Battle effects of awesomeness and such. It's much cheaper and thus you can get more of it. Live action fighting scenes still look silly and artificial even today.

Can America do cute girls doing cute things as well as Japan? I don't think so.

That's not what a weeaboo is.

Of course there's barely anyone left on /a/ who remembers that.

A cute girl among a staff of ugly puppets doesn't mean much. I liked the show though when I watched it years ago.

Hey, /tv/, I wanna ask you something.

What would the result be if you replaced everything in Star Wars with 4chan related stuff?

Fucking critics overrating old movies solely because they were pioneers in whatever they did. Would half those old flicks hold a candle to the indie movies to today? Probably not.
