>Why harp on Princess Tenko? why not look at what Batman and Superman has

 Oh yeah... I forgot Swat Kats. That's one cool cartoon.

 Wait, what I meant with "aesthetics" is... well, try
 comparing the mecha designs of Battletech with that
 of Macross or Gundam. I think you'll see what I mean.

>but it has a certain grittiness that I like over anime. also, why not look
>at stuff like the Last Unicorn and Flight of Dragons? aren't they great?

 The Last Unicorn? Wasn't that an anime? Cool! Flight of
 the Dragons sounds familiar...

>I dunno. it's just that saying only Japanese can do Anime and NO ONE else
>should sounds really...ugh.

 Well, if non-Japanese will do anime and keep the nice
 anime elements intact, fine. But what if they don't?
 Wouldn't that be just horrible?
