14 pathetic excuses or justify your existence

I'm tired of the argument that anime/manga is superior to western animation

Yes, exactly. It's NOT. There's just as much shit out there in anime as there is anywhere else. Anyone that thinks 'anime is just better because' is just being a pretentious asshat. :)

I guess you could argue that for a while there it seemed like Disney was *only* marketing to kids. Not to say that it's stuff doesn't have scary moments. Hell, there were some pretty scary things in the oldschool Disney films too. And Fantasia is just an acid trip, but I LOVE it. But still, Disney *does* have a brand, and they try to market to a specific group, although you could say with Pixar and such they are widening that gap a little bit.

Perhaps it's also completely unfair to try and compare Disney with anime which probably shouldn't be grouped under one giant umbrella because you're dealing with so many different companies, which don't always necessarily have the same audiences.

So, it's kinda more apples and oranges to me. :)
