>>Also, the truth is that most Japanese people find even something remotely creepy or unconventional to be "scary". Truth is they find most of my drawings to be scary and weird, and that turns them off because it's not candy-coated and chibi-big-headed.
>>Also, about the atmospheric thing being boring in anime, I also totally agree. The problem with Japanese movies and animes is that they don't understand that you have to change some things when converting to a new medium (the only thing they've figured out is cutting Speedwagon out I guess). That mainly includes the pacing of anime, because in a manga you can go at your own pace, whereas in a movie/anime you have to see what the director wants you to see for as long as he wants. Plus, no matter how good the animation is, a character standing and looking at a beautiful sunset will never look as good as real life.
