While I am not as direct in my criticism as garrick, the fact is that they
are using wrong standards...methinks they are comparing what is meant to a
tv series to their movie classics. If they do that, anime will never win,
simply because they have more money to spare to make good on the movies.
And even then, I find that some of their movies have anime leanings, like
Titans AE, or Kimba the White Lion, errr, The Lion King. I dunno. As for
their technical comments...well, they miss teh stylistic point. for
characterization...I dunno, i find that quite a lot of anime have deep
chartacterization. not just ing ugnam but in a lot of it...Cowboy Bebop
basically rocked in this category...
