I'm a little curious is Cartoon Network popular in Japan?
I think it got to be be more popular than 10 years ago. But in here, still almost Japanese don’t watch pay-TV. If they pay, they may prefer dramas than cartoon. People around me love and enjoy western cartoon though. We are very special nerds!:P
Is there anything that Japanese animators should learn from Western animation? Conversely, is there anything that Western animators should learn from Japanese animation? What do you think are the best aspects of each style?
As far as art style and animation technique, there is nothing to learn for each animators any more. Because they are all good in their own way. Why Avatar: the Last Air Bender and Panty & Stocking got to be so popular? Because they are the first cartoon (at least I have ever seen) well-studied each different styles. Both creator well know each “difference” their own country style.
But I think, if all western cartoons get to be like Avatar series, and also Japanese anime change like PPG or Disney, it will be boring. The reason Avatar and Panty & Stoking are especially impressive is there are basic culture in both of couｎtry easy to find the “difference”.
If there is a thing Japanese animation should learn form Western animation, that is how to monetize their products, and protect and ensure the health and stable livelihoods of their animators.

Hmm, the cost depends on how much time I spend to draw. Actually, I haven’t sold my art directly to people. I wanna know what price is fair if I set up a online shop and I sell my art. Anyway thanks for asking!
Not just that, but there will be a separate Season Three DVD case for those who have the first two. But I am definitely getting the complete set. Also WIDESCREEN. THEY ARE IN WIDESCREEN LIKE IT ORIGINALLY WAS. OH MY GOD.

When do you remember being introduced to western animation? Was it from childhood or sometime later?
In my childhood, I mean in the in the early 90’s, Western cartoons were aired on commercial broadcasting in Japan more than now. I used to watch TMNT, BTAS, Animaniacs, Ducktales, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, some Disney animation series like Aladdin, and even though Cybersix. At that time, I was not a big fan of western cartoon freak. I just watched those show because when I turned over channel they were aired on. I also enjoyed to watch Sailor Moon, Fushigi Yugi, Magic Knight Rayearth and some typical shojo manga anime as same as almost girls. Actually, I prefer to Japanese animation than western cartoon then.
When I grew up a teenager in 2000’s, Japanese animation studio faced the transitional stage of Cel to digital painting. And It was a period I graduated Japanese animation. Because early digital painting technique of Japanese animation was too worse. Thy were painted ton of weird and too vivid colors. And same time, almost studio didn’t get enough budget to make animation series. So they outsource in between animation part to oversea studio cheap enough to paid their salary.(In those days, almost animation studios of other Asian countries were just developing.) So they used too much still cutscene and it made me boring. It was like a “picture-card show”.:( At least, I couldn’t called them “anime”.
At that time, my parents signed up for CS digital broadcasting and it was a first time to see Cartoon Network. I remember what cartoon I was into at first is Oggy and the Cockroaches. As soon as I watched the cartoon, I got a big fan of the show. There are no complicate story as like anime, and characters move all the way screen! I recognized then, “This is the true animation!” Until then I have forgotten the fun of animation.
Later then I got to check any old and new cartoons aired on Cartoon Network. Especially TEEN TITANS was a quite innovative western cartoon I think. That show often use Japanese anime style expression and effect. And that was the greatest shock for me when I saw Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was the biggest surprise in my life, US cartoon studio made Japanese style animation and there was not just a copy, even better than original! This is a big pleasure to meet such an awesome animation and I’m sad little bit Japan still can’t create a huge animation series like ATLA.
I was a just fan of western cartoon at first, and started to draw their fanart and post them to dA since 2008. I was an art college student and I had much time to draw.(I wish I could be back that time.) It was much fun to communicate with same fans and artists. And luckily, I could also contact professional artist of western cartoon studio! It inspired me so much and more and more I was into and adore them.
Anyway, this is my history why I became a western cartoon freak. I don’t think which western or Japanese is better. They have many great things and are inspired and respected each other. On the internet, fill of a lot of animation, video game projects collaborated famous Japanese creator with western popular creators. I believe some day will come, the border of nationality will disappear as like now the border between professional and amateur was almost gone. Thanks for your reading such a ling text and sorry about my poor English! I’ll study with watching cartoon more!
