Top 10 Reasons Anime is Better Than American Cartoons
The Top Ten
Yeah that is true anime characters are great with different personalities and different looks and they are realistic and relatable. Cartoon characters are mostly weird or cute nothing else they can't be realistic or cool or dangerous. Anime characters make me feel like I'm a part of them too like when they are sad I'm sad when they are happy I'm happy too when they cry I cry when they laugh I laugh too. That's why anime characters are way better than cartoon characters.
The characters are all so unique, yet so relatable. Their stories are easy to get behind and understand. They feel like real people and not just animations because the people who created the characters put their heart and soul into it. When an anime character is crying, I'm crying. When they're laughing, so am I!
I completely agree with TheYoshiPyro64. This list was just made by salty weeaboos that shove their opinions down our throats and horde body pillows in their basement. They hate anything created by European or American culture, because "White people are uncultured! 1! 1 Japan is betur! 1! " And you wanna know why I know that we're dealing with weeaboos? Look at all the dislikes towards TheYoshiPyro64. I've seen my fair share of western animation, and it isn't garbage. Yes, I watch modern SpongeBob and I enjoy it. Is that such animation bad thing? Western cartoons aren't shallow. If anything, all of your precious "Slice of Life" animes are shallow. So many stereotypical characters types in those ones.
Look, I like anime and cartoons equally, but you guys saying all cartoons suck clearly haven't watched the better ones. For instance, numerous adult cartoons, Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, Star vs The Forces of Evil, Adventure Time and Over the Garden Wall, and cartoons pilots like Infinity Train and Obituary. I get really tired of people just stereotyping cartoons because they've seen one episode of SpongeBob or something. Also, don't harass someone because they like cartoons better, it's their opinion, geez.
Actually watch the good cartoons before you judge them all in general.
Due to anime being able to have an actually serious nature, I feel for the characters. American cartoons are all about comedy without plot so I never give a damn about the characters. I mean isn't there an entire video on youtube devoted to all the Kenny deaths from South Park? How am I supposed to care when he dies literally every episode. Anime is different because they let me connect by making the characters real and relatable. Even if we're not talking about heavily emotional anime where I cry over characters dying or being seriously injured (Kagari from Psycho Pass and Izaya from Durarara), I still feel emotions for the characters.
For the stupid people who said "American cartoons have more supporters because of their cheesy songs" obviously are stupid Weeaboos who can't stand the fact that American cartoons are more well known than their precious little Anime, there're only a few Animes that I love. American cartoons have all different types of songs in them, most Anime always have cheesy songs about "working together" and $hit like that. Plus, most Animes hardly have a story line other than "this guy can turn into a monster" crap. So you idiots out there saying that "Anime is better than American cartoons" are stupid Ichigo wannabes that try to compare the cartoons that are meant to be kid friendly with the darkest type of Anime you can think of.
Really? Character development is the worst thing about anime. All of them are the same. All of them have feelings? American characters do, too. This is the dumbest list ever. You can get an emotional connection with ANY character, anime or not. As long as you like the show enough. The animation is better? How wrong you weaboos are. Anime is the same old choppy stuff, while American animation is smooth. Also, the storylines? Forget it. The comedy anime has to take place in a high school and have hentai in it. You want to talk about fart jokes in American animation? Hentai is worse. The action is boring, and I give up at the halfway mark. You otakus want to bash other things, but look at your own fandom first.
American cartoons have more supporters because of their cheesy songs and most people are lazy to read the subtitles for anime shows that cannot be translated or they just do not get the meaning of the storyline. I think if anime has more shows for children then it would be popular but don't remove character death. American cartoons use to have character death but children these days keep crying. What is the use of a story that just has singing. It just make children believe they won't die.
the stories in anime are great in cartoons there is no plot just random, meaningless and stupid adventures anime stories have more meaning to them.and literally you can't add everything to a show it gets ruined if you do that people loose interest and that's what is happening in cartoons.anime's stay on the plot that they have and if someone does not like the story or the plot that a specific anime has they can just watch another one there are thousand's of anime's to choose from.
Anime has lots of depth in the story. There usually is a deeper meaning you can get out if it. Unlike, American cartoons, it can get really serious with certain topics. Cartoons are based around light topics. In animation, characters grow a lot in person. They change through their experiences. The characters in cartoons usually stay the same. I think anime also can grasp the watcher's attention even if they don't like the art because of the story. (That's how I ended up loving One Piece even though I vowed to never read/watch it because I thought it was a childish, stupid anime) I think the plot lines in animation are really clever and well thought out.
As if anime stories aren't full of cliches, boring characters, regurgitated plots, generic designs. One piece is old and it NEEDS TO DIE
Anime is filled with emotion, and if the author/director tries, the story plot can be really amazing. The characters aren't black and white, in my opinion(Call me biased if you like.). Most cartoons have episodes that aren't connected at all, and don't really have a plot, not saying that anime can't not have a plot(Take Lucky Star for example, not hating, cause I loved it, just saying.). Anime characters also have growth, unlike cartoon characters, who seem to learn a moral, sometimes, by the end of the episode, but forget it when the next one starts. The only cartoon I've ever been a fan of is scooby doo, and people will say it's really pointless and predictable, which it is, but I still love it, but it proves my point on this topic; that cartoons, always have a happy ending, unless the newer ones don't, sorry, I don't watch adventure time, steven universe or anything(I live under a rock pretty much.), and anime, you can never tell. Anime endings will continue to surprise me. I'm ...more
Anime can be better than this. I mean I'm against anime, because what does anime show not just today but probably the time anime was invented? A lot of trippy. What I'm saying is that they should take all the bull from the good stuff, like lasers and magical powers the people harness. And start putting the good stuff in it and make a new genre of anime. I'm thinking like a sitcom anime or something.
True! I strongly support American Cartoons, mostly because they are a lot more flexible in plot, and I think Anime should at least try to do that if they want MY precious vote.
OMG! people who think every anime character looks the same are badly mistaken (I THINK YOU PEOPLE SHOULD GO TO AN EYE SURGEON AND GET GLASSES)anime characters look really cool and the animation is great too in cartoons the thing is that the animation was awful before but the story was good and now the animation is getting better but the stories are being ruined like (looney toons,power puff girls,scooby doo and ben ten ect.)
Dude, this list was obviously created by a Weeaboo, I mean come on, most Anime have cheap flashy movements, and for the idiots saying "The fight scenes are' awesome and most of the animation is so realistic" must have been living under a rock, what's so realistic about an overly dramatic emo boy with bug eyes? Cartoons animation is much smoother and they actually put life in their characters movements, and in cartoon fight scenes, they have the characters look like they are actually fighting and they have it where you can see what's happening, but for most Anime, all they do is use the cheap "lines across the screen" trick for their fight scenes because they are to lazy to get into detail, also, most Anime use the same picture for about a third of an episode with only the mouth moving, most Anime animate their stuff lazily and it doesn't really take much time to make an Anime, which is why Anime can make their shows 30 minutes. But cartoons actually put forth effort in their ...more
Take a look at The Problem Solverz, Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Fanboy and Chum Chum, and other modern cartoons as well. Even the old animation from Classic SpongeBob was better than the animation in Modern SpongeBob.
Lol, you cannot be serious. Anime in general don't have the budget for good animation. Western cartoons have better animation; not only because they have a larger budget, but character designs can be more simple. More simple designs means the less time it takes to draw a character. This let animators draw more frames. This is why anime characters tend to stand still when they talk, they only animate the mouth. In western cartoons the characters actually move when they talk.
Yes there are many animes that don't have good movements but there is a lot of things that anime has that cartoons don't I mean even the stupidest animes show what is going on and have a story line but in most cartoons there is no story line and also I will not say that cartoons suck and no one should watch them I'm just saying in my opinion anime all in all has a lot more enjoyable things than cartoons do
Hello, cartoon fans that came here to comment! (Nothing wrong about that, anime fans do it too.) I have a neutral opinion. Please, no hate. I am a big fan of anime, but cartoons are amazing as well. The reason may be that I don't watch them as much. Anyway, I'll try saying this respectfully.
While lots of female characters in anime have the 'big boobs that bounce around every time they move' characters, they also have many characters with normal and small chests. Not every strong female character has big breasts. From the top of my head, I can name Mikasa Ackerman, Morgiana from Magi, Yona (from Akatsuki no Yona), and Olivier Armstrong.
Last time I checked cartoons had strong, independent females too like Korra, Katara, Toph, wonder woman, raven, miss martian, artemis, mulan, merida, daria, and many others were strong and independent female charaacters. Anime tends to abjectify women more, and when it does have strong female characters, they just make that the whole point of their character with no other defining character trait (looking at you Erza and Yoruichi).
Cartoon characters are nowhere near to the following characters' strength: Erza Scarlet, Juvia, Riza Hawkeye, Touka Kirishima, Mikasa Ackerman, Hanji, Winry, Wendy, literally any girl from Fairy Tail, and Lucy (Elfen Lied)
Um. Well anime female characters are independent, but...they are too sexy. Like, they all have big boobs, and most of them are hentai or herem girls who just wants handsome and powerful male characters to love them. Ugh! Even in magical girl anime, where the females are obviously the protagonists, the anime highlights or shines a spotlight on a scene where a man saves a woman...in slow motion!
To me, anime woman are mostly just being marketed for body features and sterotype "I love you! "
Anime scenes are pretty realistic. But in cartoons you see that the fight was off-screen or just a cloud spits out with stars and swirling lines. Alternatively, you also see a tornado (which it was from the old Looney Tunes).
The fight scenes at times can get very violent almost too violent at times that it can be hard to watch at times for example in Dragon Ball Z during the fight between Gohan and Recoome Recoome actually breaks Gohans neck with one hard kick and it shows him almost completely lifeless.
I love fight scenes mor me than any other scenes BY FAR and anime exaggerates them so you can't help loving them! Don't believe me? Watch Naruto/Bleach and you'll see.
The fight scenes can be incredibly violent almost as violent as a Quentin Tarantino movie characters bleed bones are broken and some of them even die.
Seeing Kirito and Asuna be number 1 on a Top 10 Anime Romances video by WatchMojo was one of the reasons I finally watched Sword Art Online. And guess what? I really loved the romance and the anime as well. I'm a boy and I love romance, so I loved Kirito and Asuna and how their relationship developed over time. And I find it quite stupid how people hate romance when it's supposed to be a part of their life if they ever wanna get married.
All anime love stories are better than American cartoon love stories. Especially Sword Art Online. Who says a virtual reality series has to be only about fighting and epic moments? Romance was the main thing that helped compel me to watch Sword Art Online. I really liked Kirito and Asuna as a couple and never ever regretted watching this anime ever.
When cartoons want have romance, they just play it straight. No nervousness, shyness, denseness, or misunderstandings, just real romantic development. But that's only when cartoons wnat romance like in young justice and avatar. But then again they're are plenty of anime when romance is not evident in the plot I. E one piece, dbz, basically most shonens.
Even the "unromantic" shippings in anime are better than cartoon ships. Example, Lelouch X C.C. from Code Geass. Both of them are equally awesome and they don't need words to show their love. While in cartoons, the romance looked like typical infatuation
At least they change my brother watches cartoons and the intro's are literally 30 seconds or something. The american intro's are most of times cringey and they have 4 years the same intro -_-
WOOHOO! anime intros rock, they are awesome and amazing :) cartoon intros are lame mostly.only some cartoons have good intros but there are very less of them :(
Anime intros are the best. Most are one and a half minutes long, but the songs are so good I'd listen to them even outside of anime. For cartoons? Nah.
Anime intros are well crafted, long, and professional like. Cartoon ones on the other hand are short, plain, and beginner like. Cartoon intros look like that it has no art or creativity in it.
Cartoons always portray their antagonists as losers. They try to send the "good guys always win" message, which is not very realistic. However, the antagonists of anime are very dangerous and present a real challenge to the protagonists. It is impossible for the protagonists to defeat them without undergoing rigorous training. In Bleach, for example, Ichigo Kurosaki had to risk losing his soul reaper powers in order to reach the final Getsugatensho and defeat Sosuke Aizen. Many characters in anime even die while fighting the antagonists, as seen in Naruto when Pain (or Nagato) killed Jiraiya.
While some cartoon villains were good most of the times they always lose quite pathetically if I may add, anime villains are smarter, more dangerous and a lot of the times triumph over the good guys such great anime villains include Frieza from DBZ who takes over the planet Namek and he's ruthless in doing so doesn't flinch in killing innocent people who get in his way and he's super powerful, In Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood there's Father who actually succeeds in his plan to transmute the whole country.
Yeah Frieza is classic. The epitome of a pure evil villain in anime.
These people have no idea what they are talking about. A great villain isn't just "dangerous" or "actually evil", a great villain needs to seem "real". I like villains who are funny more than villains who are dangerous. Comedy makes them feel more real than "OH NO, HE CRUSHED SOMEONE'S HEAD WITH THEIR FISTS! 1! ". And it doesn't have to just be comedy, have them say something you hear maybe everyday! They may be villains, but people can still relate to a part of them.
No cartoon villain has ever made me hate them so much as some anime villains do. Watching how sadistic and evil Sugou from Sword Art Online was made him one of my favorite anime villains that I just love to hate. And by that, I mean I hate Sugou, probably even on the level of Shou Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist.
It depends for every fooly cooly or gurren Lagann there are 10 different fighting anime with the same cliches and characters. Some American cartoons are awesome such as Steven universe (a show about a young boy being raised by humanoid aliens, he must learn how to control his powers well dealing with the fact his birth is the reason his mother died and he is really a liability to the team), adventure time (a show about a boy and his magic dog brother going on adventures to different universities and fighting with magical monsters while also being friends with a bubble gum woman, princess made of fire and a demon/ vampire in a post apocalyptic world.
Animes are better than American cartoons, even Gravity Falls when you think about Gurren Lagann, the show about a boy the size of Earth, who can control robot bigger than a galaxy and sometimes bigger than the known universe, Gurren Lagann makes all the other animes and Gravity Falls look weak and boring.
Madoka magica is about two teenage girls(Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki) who were only your average school girls until they made a contract with a cat like creature(Kyuubey)to be magical girls.A classmate of them who is also a magical girl(Homura Akemi)told them not to as she believed that they will be in danger because as magical girls will battle witches. But another one(i forgot her first name. You know, the blond one with the gun)disagreed with Homura and eventually, Madoka and Sayaka became mahou shojos.True, there are magical girl cartoons. But their plot sucks. Why won't magical girl cartoons be like magical girl animes?
Try getting trapped in a VRMMORPG with 10,000 players inside where dying in the game means you die in real life unless you beat the final boss and clear all 100 floors, Adventure Time.
The only legitimate anime series that contains toilet humor is Gintama, but other than that, that's just only ONE anime with toilet humor. Plus, it doesn't overuse toilet humor and at least the toilet humor can be funny. While most cartoons such as Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Fanboy & Chum Chum, and Uncle Grandpa have overused toilet humor. Sigh... sure, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy had a lot of toilet humor as well, but at least it wasn't overused. Now most cartoons that aren't well-written superhero shows don't seem to be like that anymore...
I EXTREMELY HATE TOILET HUMOR! well toilet humor is in Gintama but Gintama is awesome! Anyways, I hate toilet humor, its just so immature and un-funny. Fart jokes, and anything like that I really hate, I really just cringe a toilet humor
Anime has better jokes that's not about farts, poops, toilets, or butts. Cartoon on the other hand, tries to hard to be funny but the only thing they can come up for jokes is only toilet humor
Anime series are intelligent enough to come up with better jokes than poop, fart, and toilet jokes.
The only anime with stereotypes that I can think of is Lucky Star and K-On
Well this is a stereotype. *Clap clap clap*
Staus quo is funny.t
I personally think that the characters in anime, both boys and girls are cuter/prettier/handsomer than most cartoon characters. Many boys in anime are so attractive. Sure, they all look like they have the same face, but that's the point of ART STYLE. Each anime has different art styles from each other which makes it quite refreshing. And they don't have the same body builds and bodily features.
How the hell does that have anything to do with cute and compassionate
I totally agree! Most American cartoon characters who are ment to be " cute" are not cute at all! With a few exculsions of course.
Explain all the dragonball z and super characters
We bare bears and Gumball are both cute shows
They aren't cute compared to Cardcaptor Sakura, the Precure franchise, and Kirby: Right Back at Ya.
Just because it has good music doesn't mean it can't be a bad show. A good show should have a creative conflict, story and characers, not just good animation and music.
Take anime openings, sure the music can be good, but I perfer it when the actual opening shows more than just 2 second standing character introductions, scenery and fighting (Looking at you, SAO). Baccano is a example of a great opening. The character introductions show they're personality, and not a single word is said in the opening, instead playing some jazzy music to go along with the opening, with matches the theme of the anime. Most cartoons are short so that they can get more on to the actual thing, instead of one minute of an opening.
Now background music is different, yes it can be awesome, but sometimes it isn't necessarily. I've only cared to listen to two anime soundtracks, which were Madoka Magica and Nichijou. The rest I just didn't care, unlike the millions of video game soundtracks I look up ...more
I'd rather listen to anime openings than the Adventure Time opening. It starts out epic, but than turns into pitiful singing. The song is trash compared to Guren no Yumiya and Crossing Field and Ignite.
Cartoon music is also really good. Case in point: SpongeBob and Steven Universe have great soundtracks. Phineas and Ferb, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time, Family Guy, The Simpsons, South Park, Futurama, etc. also have good soundtracks.
Oh yea watch Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry or Animaniacs and maybe you won't think that, or you're biased and won't accept that American cartoons are good too.
Yeah anime tends to have really powerful and beautiful soundtracks that are more pleasing than American cartoons music
Most anime fans care less about the real culture of Japan, but they are weebs who think they know everything about it. All they care about are the exciting points and fantasy elements.
By teaching them words like "kawaii desu", and making them think females are emotionally sensitive, and males like "peeping toms"? Japan is actually a pretty mannerly country.
Japanese culture is portrayed the wrong way by anime *braces self for dislikes*
Yeah it does, but usually for the wrong reasons.
In anime when a character is in despair or is sad it is often better than in American cartoons. An example is when anime characters feel pain or sorrow they scream out in pain somewhat a real scream but in American cartoons I hear " IT HURTS" or "DOH" which isn't very appealing to me at least.
Not really...they're way too dramatic.
But it's too exaggerated
When cartoon characters hurt : Ouch - It hurts - DOH
When anime characters hurt : AAAOAOAOAOOAKHKHKHKHSHIIINGOOLALOO...
good humor in cartoon is rare now days cartoon humor is stupid and annoying anime has real and good humor something that we can call funny american cartoon humor is mostly toilet jokes and stupid stuff good humor in cartoon is rare, Anime humor is funny not weird and good
ZZDOORAL what you stand by is retarded. You are clearly a biased anime fanboy. American cartoons have slapstick but it's not it's main humor. There a quick-wit jokes or adult jokes or even funny pop cultural references that are still known today. It's really clear to me that you have no sense of humor because anime isn't funny at all and you keep saying that American cartoons only have slapstick. Also if a piece of well-timed slapstick was funny, it will always be funny. It will never be unfunny unless you keep watching it over and over again. American cartoons are way funnier and better than anime will ever hope to be.
Well your saying that's all the humor in American cartoons and it's really not. Sure there is slapstick but it's well timed enough to be funny. Apparently you are biased about slapstick even if it's well timed. I watch a lot of American cartoons and I barely see slapstick. It's there but your making it seem that it's the only type of humor in American cartoons.
Everyone has a different sense of humor. One guy might find a joke of lifting a girl's skirt to be hilarious, but the guy next to him finds the joke to be immature and creepy. The cartoons and anime I have watched have a variety of comedy, and even though I didn't find some jokes funny, I could see effort put into it.
I don't agree that anime is only for kids. In Western culture, animation mostly focus on children. But Japanese anime basically server all kind of genres. You can see Doraemon or Youkai Watch is made for kids but others like Gintama, S.A.O. or Attack on Titan for teenagers and adults. For anybody is still thinking anime for kid, you are misunderstand because anime is made by difference culture (Japanese culture) where their standard is not like ours. Anime can show "love" between two elementary kids and "violent" in schoolboys and their teachers relationship... So don't force your standard on anime cause its not your culture.
Well, yes, but to all of those saying that things like SAO or Attack on Titan are for adults, your wrong, both of those shows are sub-par shows and made for children around 10-14. In all honesty though, yes, anime does make extremely mature shows, the best example I can think of is Elfen Lied, this show is rates T.V.-MA but it honestly should have a new rating to its own credit, it is extremely sad, heartbreaking, gory, and does not hide anything or shy away from showing anything. They also don't sacrifice the story line for anything. Be warned though, this show features torture, sexual abuse, animal abuse, child abuse, child sexual abuse, etc.
Anime Is For Kids (innocent smile while we watch scenes of L dying, Light dying, Mello dying, Itachi dying, Titans eating humans, and other scary)
Yep! Anime is for kids! Look! It's rainbows! Kids, wanna sing a song? Yay! Now let's sing a happy song?
(What's Up People by Maximum the Hormone)
Now, kids, let us now sing a song about big, adorable teddy bears that like to eat gingerbread men!
SEID IHR DAS ESSEN NEIN WIR SIND DIE JAGER
What must we do next, little children? Yes! That's right! We must...
(CRY WHILE WATCHING EVERYONE DIE)
And that's why anime is for kids! (Pfft, my ass)
Madoka Magica is so child friendly It makes Lalaloopsy and Little Charmers look like an R rated show! There's this cute bunny-cat named Kyuubey and he is so sweet! He would NEVER rip out souls of girls who became magical girls and turn them into gems! (Sarcasm. Wait until you see Mami tomoe's death or Sayaka Miki's witch transformation. And Kyuubey was never good! Not at ALL! )So is Mirai Nikki! So many child friendly animes(sarcasm)
Why try to call Attack on Titan or Sword Art Online overrated when cartoons are way more overrated than those series? Adventure Time and Phineas and Ferb get so overly praised for what little they contribute to the cartoon industry with their shows.
JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING'S "OVERRATED" DOESN'T MEAN IT'S BAD. I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF PEOPLE USING THIS PATHETIC WORD TO MAKE AN EXCUSE TO HATE SOMETHING. The word "Overrated" is overrated itself, and it needs to stop. It is a bad reason to hate something without watching/playing the actual thing.
CARTOONS ARE OVERRATED. ANIME IS OVERRATED. VIDEO GAMES ARE OVERRATED. BOOKS ARE OVERRATED. ANIMALS ARE OVERRATED. FOOD IS OVERRATED. DRINKS ARE OVERRATED. LIFE IS damn OVERRATED. SO SHUT UP ABOUT EVERYTHING BEING OVERRATED.
At least they don't show too many commercials and merchandise.
anime have to pay to not be american but japanese.
In the world of anime (and manga) there is something to watch for everyone no matter age, gender or preferences. You can find anything from thriller, adventure and action to romantic comedies via any kind of childish theme you can come up with. No matter the theme you can think of, there's sure to be an anime about it!
American cartoons aren't the same. Anime DOES have different genres ok?! It's not for Emos either. Anime is for anyone for all ages! There not always dark and depressing. They can be funny like a regular cartoon. Also to mrcoolface, if you don't like anime, your in the wrong spot dude. This is for people who love anime so let everybody enjoy it. Anime rocks!
So do cartoons. The DCAU has a lot of action cartoons. Steven Universe, Adventure Time, BoJack Horseman and The Legend of Korra are dramas. The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Invader Zim, Gravity Falls and The Owl House belong to horror.
I read some comment near the bottom, and I saw a very valid point, most Anime genres are just "learn how to fight, or die" type of genre. :/
Oh yeah? I'd like to see American cartoons juggle genres in one season like Sword Art Online did!
"Different Genres"? 95% of Anime have the same genre that is basically "learn how to fight or die".
American cartons have different generes to choose from. Every Disney animated movie is basically full of different generes
Like when you just know about DBZ and you think that Anime is only about ''learn how to fight or die''
I can relate to Harley Quinn who was originally a cartoon character, I can relate to Mabel from gravey falls and Arnold from hey Arnold.
I can't relate to kagome from inuyasha, squid girl fro squid girl, sailor moon and fooly cooly
Have you seen Family based Cartoons? You can relate to anybody in there. You gotta have a messed up life if you can relate to anime characters.
I can relate to chum chum because I am a 4 year old who wears their underwear over their pants so I can emphasize my weight problems
Yes I can relate to Kirito from SAO because I win everything (Including a harem) by being edgy and saving girls.
Anime does in fact feature a lot of great supporting characters who help out the main character, In Dragon Ball Z you have Master Roshi who was Goku's master, King Kai who teaches Goku the Techniques that help him with fight against the Saiyans and there's Bulma despite her constant nagging proves to be real help with her technology especially the Dragon Ball Radar, in Fullmetal Alchemist there's Winry the very Auto Engineering who gave Ed his auto mail the got him back on his feet and lets not forget Pinako and there's Mes Huges who becomes the closes thing to a real father to Ed & Al.
But people are saying every supporting character is great when in Pokemon all the characters have no personality
How about you watch an anime that isn't Pokèmon, seriously that's like the only anime I've seen you complain about
An example of a supporting character: Hetalia you have England who raised and fought against America in the Revelutionary War.
Sometimes the supporting characters are even better than the main ones i.e. Naruto : Itachi > Naruto, Konan ( and every other Naruto female characters ) > Sakura; Fairy Tail : Jellal > Natsu, Erza > Lucy; Inu Yasha : Sesshomaru > Inu Yasha; Death Note : L > Light, Naomi > Misa,…
In Madoka Magica, none of the other Puella Magis were brought back to life until ultimate Madoka revived them In the new world she created. And their deaths In the previous world (Madoka kind of died because she rewrote the universe while destroying herself and Homura probably died)actually helped on Madoka's character and had storyline purposes. If Mami survived the fight with Charlotte, Madoka would be a magical girl, Kyoko wouldn't come to Mitakihara and Homura had to reset the whole thing(and worsen Madoka's fate without noticing It), If Sayaka didn't turned into a witch, Madoka wouldn't thought of the wish to erase witches and would wish for something else like the cake idea Mami gave her, If Kyoko killed Sayaka's witch and stayed alive, Madoka wouldn't be that desperate or thought of the wish. But Madoka being that powerful DOES make sense. Let's say, at first, she wished for a loaf of bread, in the other one she wished for a lettuce, and then meat and another one cheese, later ...more
Yui's death tried to be, but failed. She just died to make everyone sad. But then the makers were like "OH NO! PEOPLE WILL DISLIKE OUR SHOW BECAUSE THEIR LOLI WAIFU DIED! " and gave Kirito the power to hack (Adding more to the "Why Kirito is flawless" list) just to bring her back. Nothing would change if she never appeared on the show, except Kirito and Asuna's relationship.
And don't just say that anime characters come back to life all the time because that's pretty much transformers in a nutshell
It adds more to the plot and changes what is going on in the plot line! It's crazy and I love it!
Most characters in the american ones are like the whole series 10 years old or someting (except for adventure time, steven universe, etc.). In anime they actually AGE (okay except Ash).
Its not really that important but it does annoy me that certain characters haven't aged at all The Simpons have been on the air for over 20 seasons yet Bart and Lisa are still in grade school don't you think by now that they would be in college by now will at least Lisa.
Just like how Ash is still 10 years old even though Pokemon anime started way back in the 90s. It's called a standing timeline dude, many anime and cartoons have them.
Your stupid for even answering it was a rhetorical question one that people already know the answer or don't really care.
Pokemn has been around for years and ash hasn't aged a day. Same goes for shin chan, and others. The hueco mundo arc īn bleach lasted roughly six years and in the story that arc only lasted one day.
