      Growing up in the USA I always thought American animation was good until I watched my first Japanese anime. The amount of detail and creativity put into every episode was amazing. There are a few ‘cartoons’ I still watch on occasion but the majority of the animation I watch is Japanese. Currently, my favorite anime is “That time I got reincarnated as a slime” 転生したらスライムだった件 (Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken).

      What is your favorite anime or cartoon?

      I love a show called Hunter x Hunter. Another one of my favorites is called Steins;Gate!

      On Crunchyroll Detective Conan is called “Case Closed”. I haven’t started it yet but I’ll add it to my list.

      If you like “That time I got reincarnated as a slime”, I recommend to check “神達に拾われた男(By the Grace of the Gods)”.
      It has some common points(Reincarnate in another world, slime), but they are completely different stories.

      I totally agree with you guys! Japanese animation studios generate content at a quicker rate than their American counterparts. The main reasons for this are their finances, the level of precision in their work, and how hard the studio works. Because Japanese anime isn’t as intricate as American animation, it takes less time to make.

        I don’t agree with Japanese anime being less intricate than American animation. I feel like American animation is lazy when it comes to character expression and detailed backgrounds whereas Japanese animation takes the time to add the little background details that really add to the story.

        Japanese animation has already proved that a lot of their works are amazing and you can feel the depth of it. The artwork, design, level of detail is far from most of animators even up to scale with some of the top tier western counterparts. When I am not streaming Japanese Horse Racing I usually stream on crunchyroll or myflixer even on netflix.

          I also stream a little on Netflix but mostly watch my anime from Crunchyroll. I am excited that Funimation and Crunchyroll are combining into one service on Crunchyroll, all the anime in one place 😀
