I am to, but obviously, anime shows are the first that come to mind when I
think about them.

Dreams. I think of animation as a medium for expressing dreams--whether they
take place in Heaven, space, or God's home planet, I think animation can and
SHOULD be used to go anywhere. The more recent American line of thinking is
that animation should have some basis in reality, whether they be set in the
past (Dinosaurs) or an already existing fairy tale (Disney etc), it just
doesn't jive with my line of thinking. I think anime titles have proven to
be more in line with what I think of animation as: an extension of people's
dreams and imaginations.
