Also was any of the indie artsie stuff good?
Personally, I've found myself pretty much completely turned off to anime (with the exception Studio Ghibli) after spending so much time surrounded by otakus on TVT.
ANIME FANS, FUCKING RUN.
I'm honestly kind of confused when people say "anime fandom". You realize there's like....a different one for each series, right?
There are some common traits overall, but say, LuckyStar and Dragonball fans really have very little in common.
Avoiding the bad part of the assorted anime fandoms can easily be accomplished by not going to Sankaku Complex or /a/.
That said if the idea of fandoms itself annoys you, well, I don't know what to tell you.
The indie stuff looked very interesting and pretty. They had some stop motion stuff with novel materials, some trippy computer animated stuff, and really colorful... patterns? Some of it defies description, but it was pretty sweet.
I see that indie anime is still very much the type of stuff I used to see on SameHat! back when I followed it. Good to know.
maybe it is because of how ridiculous the plot is and how serious it thinks it is? Yu-Gi-Oh animeserious

Do Teen Titans, Code Lyoko, and Avatar: The Last Airbender count as anime despite not being Japanese?
Depends on who you ask. Just like some people consider Bizenghast a manga and some don't.
LuckyStar's fans are predominantly young girls and people of my age who find its weird humor funny.
The KONATA IS MAI WAIFU are a minority in the extreme.
Of course a lot of people dislike LuckyStar because it's in the moe art style and MOE IS THE CANCER THAT IS KILLING ANIME or something.
Personally I think that if you're going to go dub you should go official dub.
Some people think that LuckyStar's dub is the worst thing ever(tm) though, so I dunno.
>on dubbing movies
I....really don't see how that relates to anime. Which is animated.
Also that is a very....pretentious, article.
It's one thing to prefer one practice to another, an entirely different one to suggest that one somehow destroys the movie.
That would again, concern me so much more if I was watching a live action movie as opposed to an animation, where things are inherently fake anyway.
You can still tell that the voices don't belong, that they aren't the genuine article.
What exactly is "wrong" about it?
I think you are really sensitive.
Because you're accustomed to the English Dub, like you said?
4kids is....weird about dubbing.
Just....weird. There really is no other way to describe it.
Their methods are not the norm, though.
