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

Oh, my god, I HATE the Wolverine anime. I was trying to describe it to my friends and the only way I could think to say it was, "So offensively Japanese that it hurt." XD Normally I worship anything Japanese, and I understand that Logan cannonically spent a few years in Japan. But the opening alone -- with the girl on the deck of the ship with the wind whipping her hair, and her engrish "Rogan!" -- was too much for me. Then the Japanese music started and I was done. Just... done.

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...

It could be said that Avatar is an anime... In America!

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

A lot of self-proclaimed "purist" fans declare that anime and manga have to be Japanese in order to be considered either of those things. What you people don't know is that half the time, you're reading Korean Manwah or Chinese manga. Also, the anime you watch? Yeah, it's animated in Korea.

Dramacon is one of the best manga out there, and it's done by a Canadian. Eat that.

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

Personally I maintain that Manga/Anime has to be Japanese in origin (as in published originally in Japan), from an American viewpoint (I know in Japan anime refers to all animation). Same for referring to Korean comics as manwah and Chinese comics as manhua. Things get a little muddy if we think about stuff like Kurokami, with a Korean writer and artists, but seeing as how they're published by Square-Enix's magazine, I consider them manga.

As for being animated in Korea, Spongebob's animated in Korea too, by the same studio as Avatar no less, but that doesn't make it any less of a cartoon.

And since you guys were talking about X-men, Marvel's deal with Madhouse is supposed to involve 4 adaptations. We've already got Iron Man, and Wolverine. The remaining two are X-men and Blade. Seeing as how Wolverine appeared in Iron Man to kind of bridge the two, I can imagine the X-men making a cameo in Wolverine sometime soon.
