Top Ten Reasons Anime Should Get More Respect

My reasons why anime should get more respect. Keep in mind that I am not saying it is better than every other cartoon out there, but we can all agree that it is better than some cartoons.

The Top Ten

1 The stories are deep and full of meaning

I wish I could agree with everything

2 The art is great

Compared to Disney films of the 30s, 40s and 50s, and Warner Bros. cartoons of the 40s and 50s, anime is a weak and bizarre third-rate. Disney and Warner were actual art, not CGI or CGI-assisted. And with many more frames per second, much more fluid and natural.

You're acting like Disney and Warner Bros wouldn't have a higher budget. - Qryzx

3 The characters have a lot of depth
4 There is an anime for everyone

There are comedies, action-adventures, mysteries, etc. - Dawscr

5 They can take your mind of stressful things
6 There is a lot of thought put into them
7 They are for a wide range of audiences
8 The episodes can be short and seasons can be long

I like short episodes in T.V. series. It is easier to take in information in 20 minute sections. - Dawscr

9 The music is great
10 They can make a good series and conclude it in one season

The Contenders

11 It helped Influence Western Animation

Without anime we wouldn't have had such amazing western animation cartoons like: Avatar the Last Aribender, Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Steven Unversed the list goes on. - egnomac

It actually went, and still does go, both ways, but still

12 It comes in a variety of genres
13 The characters have big eyes

Best reason. - Brobusky

14 The stories are original
