That is just cultural differences. Exactly what I already said. We have grouped their animation and their style under their name for animation, anime. We made the genre. They were just making animation the way they were culturally inclined to.
I was working on an idea about the greatest warrior in the world, who was turned into a woman by a wizard because of his arrogance. It was to be done in an anime style. I might get back to it, but I had other things I’d rather write.
My idea was kind of a sci-fi epic taking place in the future Neo-Tokyo, where extreme liberalism is reigning supreme and everything is owned by the private sector, including the police force. The prison facilities consist of two huge fortified islands. All those people accused of the most atrocious crimes are sentenced to live on the island with the least natural resources available. In order to survive, these prisoners have no choice but to go on missions by traveling to the other island and steal all they need from there, where other prisoners with minor criminal charges are residing. Of course bloody clashes between the two groups is inevitable. All the while everything is being filmed and shown on one of the leading private television channels as a reality show. It’s pretty complicated and maybe a bit pretentious, but I can’t see the whole idea working in any other form besides anime.
