I think They're both good. depends on My mood and depends on the show.

Cartoons usually focus on hilarity-

Good examples are like The Simpsons
South Park and Archer

By the way, anyone here watches Archer? It's brilliant.

Anime are not always comedic. A lot of Shonen and Seinen Anime are pretty damn serious.

For this reason I prefer Anime a bit more than Cartoons. Because western animation tends to humor-ize stories and limit their own creative options...

In a sense, true, that western animation tends to humour-ise the stories...

But if you're talking about creative options, I'd say the most creative animes are the ones least heard of..! Or least discussed..

Ghost In The Shell (1995), Akira, Animatrix are pretty damn creative....all of them showcasing grim forecasts for the future of man..

Nausicaa, Howl's Moving Castle, and some other Miyazaki works are impressive for the detail that was put into the world.

Among manga I found White Clouds (one-shot) to be beautiful. A not-so-heard-of manga Cage of Eden (shonen with bits of ecchi) is another great read (million year old dinosaurs eating people...so common and boring nowadays. But what if we replaced the dinosaurs with million year old mammals? Throw a bunch of kids into the pot and we have a gem!)..

I also remember Gundam as a must-watch from when I was a kid..also there was an anime called Brain Powerd, and I loved the concept..

And many more like Baccano!, xxxHolic, Honey and Clover, Cowboy Bebop...

Among cartoons, the one I found to be hilarious and meaningful at the same time was Spongebob Squarepants!!!


Whadya think??

@Blood- I WAS saying that anime is more imaginative than western animation.

I've seen almost all that you mentioned. Except for movies by Miyazaki, which I totally want to try.
Also I want to watch something by Satoshi Kon.
And GITS? Thats my Favorite series. In my top five.

But hold on...
Spongebob?
Really?
Lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Absorbent and Yellow and Porous is he?

I didn't find it...meaningful, to be honest. Though its definitely hilarious.

More imaginative....true, hands down, true.

Do try Miyazaki. They are great.

Satoshi Kon? I've not heard of him...need to do some research.

GITS is one of my favs too...

Spongebob...yep. All the way. I meant meaningful in the sense that they are creative. That madness, goofy craziness, for which Spongebob is famous is like mad hatted creativity. The whole series, the movies make absolutely no sense. And that's why I find them so creative.
