Trash Crap... It is trash.
It is the worst unoriginal idea of the world. WE ARE AMERICAN, NO NIPON/COREAN O ANYBODY.
We had original style, the ability of create new things, but the anime make a brainwash to the nowadays animators and cartoonist. I cant believe it. We are losing we american soul.
You can see which they made to the looney toons.
They cancel unlimited SpiderMan ç
They cancel Invader Zimand the angry beavers.
They eliminate Pepper Ann and Doug of Toon Disney.
They are here, and they are taking our minds. And I'm crying while the mind of our children are in a corruptization with demoniatic-mosters cards and commercial stuff.
Americanime. The lost of our souls. the commercialization of our dreams to stupid "cards and videogame"seller anime.

Americanime is an American cartoon with visual art influenced by Japanese animation, also known as anime. It's mostly a fad; cartoonists exploiting the recent popularity that anime has gotten in North America in the past decade or so.

It has the thin veneer of anime, but the characters, plots, and dialogue all lack the depth and clever writing of their Japanese cousin, and the stories are all episodic (with one of the exceptions being Avatar perhaps. That Americanime rivals its Japanese counterparts in writing.) In other words, it's a kid's cartoon that is drawn like an anime.
I hate that Americanime shit. It's a boring fad and doesn't hold a candle to true anime.
