I say lets look at it at the story. I enjoy all sorts of stuff and truthfully, I've come to look at anime as no different from a good movie or a book. American animation on the other hand, well, its just aimed at kids, period. At the end of the day, its the story that makes it all worthwhile, and while Americans claim superior animation techniques(they claim, but I severely disagree on this), I still say the Anime TV series are superior by far precisely because of the story and characterization. Heck, I've gone through childhood and all and I don't even watch Disney Movies! (Musicals make me sick you see) Not that its a bad thing, but as Richie said, its not a basis of comparison.
