Anime Vs Cartoons
« on: August 27, 2009, 04:36:36 PM »
The opening to the feature video is basically done, so I need to start working on the script.

I think I'm going to need some help though. There are a number of categories covered:

Definition (covered)

Genres

Characters

Intro/Outro themes

Plot

Backgrounds

Detail

Angle

Content

----------------------------

This movie will included many example comparisons so what I need help with is picking the right anime to use in these comparisons.

Starting with Genre (get to the others later)

During this section, we'll be explaining how cartoons mostly fall under either Comedy or Action. While Anime can have a number of genres. So I need a few examples of anime that do not focus so much in the Comic and Action genre.

Okay, I'll help!

So:

Terra e... (or Toward The Terra) - Not one bit of comedy. It's like... psychology and life.

Berserk - Not comedy. Lots of action, though. Violence, sex (some rape included), horror.

MariaHolic - I think you should cover the "sexuality" in this Genre section. Btw, it's yuri. Comedy with a storyline covered up in funny scenes.

Najica Blitz Tactics - This could cover the fanservice section. Action.

0.0 I haven't seen any of that anime yet. Hmmm...

To janus, we are comparing anime and cartoons, showing the differences. For the first section, genre, we are going over how cartoons focus in comedy and action whereas anime covers multiple genres.

What I am looking for are good examples of anime to show this difference in genre, I would like something I've seen, but if not something short so I can watch it quickly.

I also kinda wanna keep the "fanservice" to a minimum, never felt comfortable with it, so broadcasting it would just kill me.

Fanservice is like a MAJOR difference between Anime and Cartoons. How can you left it out? Be ready to have like this huge mailbox with comments "Oh there's also fanservice" and "you forgot fanservice!!" etc. xD

Hum... Berserk has 25 episodes, MariaHolic has 12, Najica Blitz Tactics has 12 and Terra e... has 24.


Also, Hajime no Ippo (76 episodes) is about sports and has comedy and action.

judging on what I've seen on this openings and bits I've heard about it  I would say it has Yuri comedy (as cata already mentioned)?

here's the op that I saw
**warning if you are unconfortable with fanservice, simply don't watch**

【OP】 まりあ†ほりっく オープニング Hanaji by 小林ゆう

good catchy music, quality op and probably good story, I wouldn't expect anything less from Shaft
this has been on "to watch" list (in my mind) I might pick this up sooner or later

oh, yes, anime vs cartoons. I got a bit carried away there, but concerning between the two the difference is like night and day, but some cartoons have mimicked the Japanese animation style or even have used japanese animation companies for their classic cartoons, that line has been getting thinner, but not my much.  but one pretty obvious difference is the demographics ( which some anime has sometimes an unclear target audience for those who are) and the genre as already mentioned which is broader.

I haven't seen much modern cartoons lately and the one that I've somewhat like is Danny Phantom Its a good action comedy that is good enough to entertain
....wait what are we discussing again....
JK, I'll try to bring some other anime/cartoons later

It's not that I won't watch something BECAUSE of fanservice, I think UY does it to the extreme, I just find it unnecessary.

The opening was funny though ^_^

And another reason I wanted to limit the "mature" content was to widen the range of viewers that could watch it.

I also noticed the sudden increase in anime like cartoons. Examples are Ben 10 and Avatar the Last Air Bender.

Those two shows are remarkably anime-like and are probably only separated by the common mature content anime usually contains. In my books, these two shows ARE anime.

Well I agree with cata... this sure will make you receive lots of messages... many people will always find something missing in that comparison.

I don't even know why you want to leave out the 2 genres that make anime... anime... XD

Hentai and Ecchi. But that's just me...

You should add the Mecha genre to that list.
"It is said that only a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man from the mistakes of others."-"A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."
I wonder which one is true!?

mecha = action for the most part

I guess I'm looking for anime in the romance, sports, drama, horror, and psychological genre (all taken from a genre list at MAL)

Military would be good too, and I've never seen a Dementia anime.

And I am NOT going to include any porn in this video!!!!!!!  >:(  >:(  >:(

I love everything about MariaHolic!! =D

Well... except the ending. xD

I even have the opening song on my mp3. lol

I think it would be important to talk about Neon Genesis Evangelion since it was a show about depressions and human mind even if it had some mechas fighting.

I don't think Anime is all about Ecchi and Hentai. To me, Ecchi and Hentai are just types of Anime.

Also, nobody was talking about porn! xD

It's just talking about it, not posting clips and pics featuring private body parts! xD

Hentai is anime porn, at least me and my co-worker think it is.

Dunno if Neon Genesis has it but I've heard about the show a lot.

NGE has what? Porn?!?! NO!!!! xD

Look, no one said Hentai wasn't porn. I also consider it porn. What me and Falling think it should be in video is that Hentai and Ecchi should be TALKED ABOUT not showed!!!

Oh Fur? I think it's weird but each person has his own tastes. =)

Well in the end, it's your video so... you can do whatever you want with it. =)
