Reasons Why Anime and American Cartoons Are Equally Great

Skullkid755
Avatar, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and Teen Titans are all awesome cartoons with interesting stories. Also, Naruto, Dragonball, Fullmetal Alchemist, and classic Yugioh are all awesome anime shows
with interesting stories. Now, if you disagree with this list, at least compare comparable anime and cartoon shows.

The Top Ten

1 Both have shows with interesting stories

Actually, to the dude that said "Anime has better animation than American cartoons" is wrong, while I do love both Cartoons and Anime, cartoons have a smoother and life like movement to their animation.

While I'm definitely not a huge fan of anime, I respect it and I will say that anime has better animation than American cartoons. - Ajkloth

Everyone has a different opinions ok? but seriously, both got really cool stories behind the humor...

That's what I love so much about anime, but American shows can be surreal too. Just not in the same way as anime.

Anime doesn't have fart jokes. Maybe, but not as much as cartoons.
