I am just saying that Anime is no better or worse than any other cartoon
I am defining a cartoon as an animated program, usually drawn that is not from Japan
I listed some examples of cartoons I think have engaging stories, and good character development, and Ill add another one here
Avatar: the last Airbender
I am not at all assuming that animation= kid's stuff because that would be retarded.
TBH my original statement came from the irritation I have towards a co-worker of mine, who scoffs at any animation that isn't anime, and has stated that the reason that Avatar: TLA was so successful was only because stupid people confused it for anime. This opinion makes me want to slap people, as I believe from your statement it makes you feel similar.
