You know, anime really isn't that great.

Bahaha. Just kidding. I just did that to get your attention. And I'm willing to bet it worked. I just wanted to share with you a discovery I've made. It's a small web comic, which is just starting, but already gaining a cult following. Maybe you'd like it, maybe not. I think it's worth checking out.<P>Here's a link, for those of you who are interested: <A HREF="http://steve.keenspace.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://steve.keenspace.com/</A> <P>-Cody.

1) Anime ISN'T that great.. there are some gems and some guilty pleasures, but honestly it's all horribly bland and uninteresting.. even the shit I like.. it still is just.. boring.. I've been beaten down to only really liking the art style as the shows themselves are fucking lame. REALLY fucking lame. DEADLY lame. G-A-R-B-A-G-E.<P>2) This comic is pretty standard web-comic material: ho-hum. It seems to be the trend these days for people that have some kind of artistic ability (no I take that back as 80% of these comics are laughable) and THINK they have a sense of humor, they write a web-comic.. there's a reason these people are running off of lame free web space and the people in the papers are getting paid to do it..<P>-Leroy, bringing you down one step at a time (:

Now for someone who actually has a positive outlook on life. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>1) Anime is great, but then again I like all things animated (I've made non anime references (He-man, Transformers, ect) as well as anime (no people Transformers is not anime)). Despite what Leroy said animw is a lot like American animation. You get some great stuff (The Simpsons and Outlaw Star) and some bad stuff (Groovy Ghoulies and Sorcerer Hunters). To me it's just another form of animation, and I like animation. Thus anime is good.<P>2) Your webcomic has a lot of potential and a nice art style. Keep it up. As for Leroy's remark about newspapers proves he obviously hasn't read comics in a newspaper lately, cause newspaper comics have gotten incredibly stale and generic. Every new comic has too be about a family or family life or no one will pick it up. Even great comic strips like Garfield have gotten horribly horribly stale and unfunny. None of the new comics are great either. About the only comics worth reading the paper for anymore is...... hmmmm.... I guess Dilbert. Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes are gone, Garfield and Hagar have gotten beyond the words of stale and unfunny (Beatle Bailey tends to still get a chuckle out of me) and further more most new newspaper comics are also horribly drawn as well. For the most part most better known webcomics (and 5% of Keenspace) are better drawn than most new newspaper comics and several of them (<A HREF="http://"http://www.melonpool.com/"" TARGET=_blank>Melonpool</A> comes to mind) are more original, too. However net comics have a few generic comics, too (how many comics can we get about video games and college kids....). But for the most part I'd say most "good" webcomics are better than most newspaper comics. But then again this is my opinion.<P>------------------

Yeah I'm sure the guy who originally posted this message wanted us to argue about anime. Hee hee.<P>This is my opinion. I generally prefer watching American cartoons over anime, and prefer reading newspaper comics over Web ones. But I like some anime and webcomics.<P>I watched the Transformers movie when I was little and this is all I can remember: the Weird Al song baffled me, the planet eating robot made a FUNNY chomping sound at the beginning of the movie, and Ironhide got killed and I was sad because that was my first Transformer toy I got.<P>--Klonoa

Okay, Transformers were based on some japanese toylines, but the cartoon itself that showed on American television is American. It was animated overseas, but was created and produced by Americans (same goes for the movie). The show was then showed in Japan where it became an even huger hit and the Japanese then made OAVs and more movies based on it. But the show we watched as kids was no more anime than Inspector Gadget or The Real Ghostbusters for the main part. To quote my friend Kyle who knows more about Transformers than I either care or want to know, "Transformers is an American cartoon with Japanese origins."<P><P>------------------

I'm agreeing with Yamcha. Transformers is not Anime. It has a few anime elements (Female robots, The Organic Design of Galvatrons Decepticons, Unicron, and Wreck-Gar's Fu Man Chu [A robot with a mustashe?])
Other than that it was a American Cartoon.<P>Anyway. I'm free from the work daemon. MUST GO HOME!!! (Runs for door)<P>------------------
