I'm glad I'm not the only one who has negativity on the subject.  I prefer the 70s/80s animation style more than anything.   Stuff like He-man, Thundarr, GI Joe, etc.  I did watch this show over the weekend and kind of dug the theme.  I would say it kind of mixes 90s animation with 70s cartoon themes.

I think it's getting way overused.  I mean, there are some "anime style" cartoons I like because they're good shows (Avatar, for instance), but it bugs me when we're seeing a lot of old school shows redone in Anime style (like the new Transformers, or Lunatics for instance).  It just doesn't LOOK right now on robotic characters.  And what really bugs me is when, for comedy effect, they have the character briefly morph into these REALLY exaggerated "large faces" and stuff, to me, it destroys the mood and takes away any sort of credibility or seriousness the show is trying to build (a la Teen Titans).

And for that matter, what is UP with that "tear drop" thing that I keep seeing over and over?  Yes, I know what it means in Japanese cartoons, but why the heck are American cartoons now using it as well?  A drop of water by someone's head doesn't mean s**t to us Americans!  (Yeah, call me ethnocentric if you want, but I stand by my point, plus I doubt it means anything to Canadians, Afrcians, Europeans, etc, etc either.)

Actually nope, I rather dislike anime influence in modern cartoons hence my original post in the thread.

I like some modern cartoons but I mostly like stuff from pre-anime explosion in the past few years.

I'm not sure if I'd even call it an anime explosion. I like real anime. It's this faux anime everybody's doing - superficial knockoffs that try to look like anime. That's what we're seeing too much of.

My anime preferences go farther back, to when most of my friends had no name for it other than "Japanese cartoons." Star Blazers, Force Five and Battle of the Planets were among my favourites growing up. I like some of the later stuff too, like Evangelion and Dragonball Z, and movies like Metropolis or Steamboy. It's anime in the vein of Pokemon, Digimon, etc. that I don't care for. That's the style that seems to have taken over, going back a few years to when you could watch Fox for two hours on Saturday morning and see nothing but Digimon.

Now along come Anime with their BIG ANIME EYES ... what's up with Japanese animation and big round eyes, I have theories.


Ironically enough, the big eyes characteristic of anime are a direct result of American toon icon Betty Boop. The Japanese fell in love with her freakish peepers and started drawing their characters with similarly grotesque oculars. So, if you hate giant eyes in Japanese cartoon characters you can blame Betty Boop and her American creator Grim Natwick. Now you know... "AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!" TeddyR

As far as the anime influence in current American productions, I couldn't care less. The only cartoons I watch that were created in the last 5 years are either Adult Swim comedies or Cartoon Network's "Chowder" and "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack", which I'm pretty sure both of which were created by former Spongebob writers. I lost interest in anime right around the time that Spriggan came out and the utter saturation of the market began. That's not to say that I'm anti-anime, but I no longer watch things just because they're Japanese made or influenced.

15 years ago my friends and I had to wait for the Sci-Fi Channel's annual "Anime Invasion Week" to get exposure to new stuff... and by "new stuff", I mean dubbed stuff from the '80s that was new to us. We'd mark it on our calenders anytime TBS would have a midnight showing of Vampire Hunter D or Robot Carnival, then spend the week up to it counting down the days. I miss those days...

I was born in the early 90s, so I had a chance closely how animation and anime crossed for my early years.  To answer the topics question, I don't really care.  Anime influence can work well for certian cartoons, Avatar, Teen Titans, and Kappa Mikey(Actually, that show pretty much seemed to mock that style of animation by adding characters that were drawn with American influence and with Japanese influence).

I'd like to know about the "tear drop" thing too.  I can't recall noticing it before.

As for anime, I don't really care one way or the other.  I'll watch any style of animation as long as the story is good and it's well drawn within its style.
