It's up to a small band of rebels called the Resistance to fight back against the ODWhy it's great: This isn't your typical anime.

What country makes the most anime?
This has been something I've wondered about for years. Anime has only been around since the 1980's and is a relatively new phenomena in American culture. ?
I've just started watching anime, and I'm getting to be really impressed with how good it is. Some of the shows I've seen have very high production values and are really well written. Other than that, I haven't even seen any half-decent anime.
I would say that the majority of anime comes from Japan. I'm a big fan of the original Lupin the Third TV series. Of course, not everyone in America gets to see the anime version. Most, if not all of them are blocked on Cartoon Network. I'm planning on getting the US version soon though. I really need to start catching up on some anime. It has the ability to really open your mind to new things.
I am interested in the fact that you are comparing Western animation and Eastern animation. When I look at anime and western animation, I tend to view it as two different art forms. The idea of comparing them is pointless, because they are two different beasts. Anime is very stylized and tends to make use of camera shots and other "hand-held" moments while making use of CG to achieve effects (blades cutting through arms or whatever) that are a bit out of place in Western animation. It's probably not so much about "who makes more", but rather what the market is looking for. Japan seems to make more anime than Western countries do. That can be viewed as either a plus or a minus depending on what one likes.
That said, in the same vein, I don't watch a lot of western animation myself anymore. But I have watched the occasional show here and there. When I watch anime episode, I feel the need to analyze the quality. I try to find flaws and see where the animators fall short in comparison to their counterparts in other genres. It's definitely a way to learn more about storytelling and the art of animation. As far as I know, Japanese animators take a lot of artistic freedom in developing characters and environments that Western animators don't. On top of that, many animators in Western countries work out of television studios. They generally do not freelance, and instead are employed by one company.
Does Japanese Netflix have better anime?
I've been trying to watch some anime series on Netflix lately. I was surprised by how many titles there were that are available to stream. I usually just stick with the Japanese ones but some are on my favorites list so I decided to pick some up and watch them. Unfortunately, I have found that there is a big difference in the quality of anime on Netflix and the quality of anime in Japan.
Why would this be the case? Because Netflix isn't always streaming anime from Japan. Some of the times I try to watch anime series on Netflix they just show a preview instead of letting me watch the whole series. When I do watch a title on Netflix it seems to be a different show altogether. The quality of the shows is different as well. Netflix's quality is pretty low.
Why doesn't Netflix stream anime? In order to know why Netflix is not streaming anime, it is necessary to understand what anime is. Anime is a popular style of television. There are hundreds of different styles of anime. While watching anime, you see 2 dimensional (2D) animated drawings and/or 3 dimensional (3D) animated drawings. 3D anime has only been around for about 10 years now. One of the best 3D anime series is Sword Art Online. If you aren't familiar with Sword Art Online, you can read our review of it.
The problem is that most of the time when you see anime on TV or in a movie theater, it is all 2D. They don't bother with the 3D effect. However, 3D anime is getting more and more popular. It's hard to get the animation for 3D done right. In the Japanese culture, people prefer to watch 2D anime. Even though they watch the 3D anime on Netflix, it's still 2D. This makes it look terrible on Netflix.
Why would Netflix not stream anime? It's the money. Netflix doesn't make much money from anime. In fact, Netflix has had trouble getting more licensing deals for more anime. In order to stream anime to the millions of customers worldwide, Netflix must pay huge sums to the anime studios and anime production companies. If Netflix streams a 3D anime series it would cost Netflix a fortune.
What is anime worth? Anime is hard to value.
