I really miss good detailed American animation. What held back American animation was the thought the cartoons are for kids. We got some dope American animation in the early to mid 90s but it didn’t stick.The downgrade in animation detail is really kind of shocking. Look at the original Scooby-Doo:
The redesign that was so bad they canceled the shyt after 2 seasons
More American animation is being inspired by anime since the current crop of animators were born in the 70s 80s and 90s so they got exposed to anime and other styles of animation so the quality of series is getting better. Castlevania on Netflix is really well animated and has a dope story. Young Justice is pretty well animated too. DC puts in work when it comes to their series and straight to home video movies. Its just their theatrical stuff that is garbage.
The asians in LA had storefronts dedicated to anime and imported shows in the 90s. You could go to Little Toyko and get all the unreleased DBZ shyt.People were still doing bootleg subtitles and their own translations and exchanging VHS tapes. Its crazy how accessible anime is now. I flipped out when my nephew showed me all the Netflix shows on there.
Yeah there was this little Asian shop in my town that had all the OG japanese robots. They even had the legit Voltron it was expensive though.The asians in LA had storefronts dedicated to anime and imported shows in the 90s. You could go to Little Toyko and get all the unreleased DBZ shyt.
them dudes is hermits that ain’t going outside enough to think about commiting a crime.Watching anime only leads to three things
1. Holding on to virginity
2. Becoming a pedo
those are 100% scientific facts.
One Piece might have the goat worldbuilding/foreshadowing of any series.
It's an acquired taste because of the artstyle and the length, but once the plot really gets rolling after Arlong, the series is goated.
Cowboy Bebop, Jojo, FMA Brotherhood, Hunter x Hunter, and all of the UC-timeline Gundam joints were also classics.
I've been saying it for the longest that Naruto fell off with the timeskip. One Piece and Hunter x Hunter >>>>
