Re: Tempest's Downpour -- The Americanization of Anime

Avatar is brilliant, whatever it is. The art-style is inspired by anime, like the Teen Titans series that rocked Cartoon Network for a few years. But I think Avatar goes one step beyond even anime itself by incorporating actual Kung Fu in it. (Yes, yes I know. Kung Fu is not Japanese. IT'S STILL ASIAN.)

Also, the animation budget seemed way higher than any anime I've seen. I mean, seriously. Beyond episode 3, most shows start sucking in the art department. Avatar, though it had some painful filler episodes, seemed to keep up with its artwork. And the voice acting ~~ *sigh* so nicely doneee...
