Hello /a/,

I was wondering which medium would be best to convey authors' thoughts and philosophies. Do you think animation can grow to be one of the best means?

I know the majority thinks of anime as an "inferior" or "childish" means of storytelling. I also understand we still don't have an anime that is comparable to classic novels, masterpiece live-action films and whatnot.

That said, I believe animation can have a strong emotional effect on us. Not a few /a/nons have been moved to tears. Many find characters in anime style attractive. I think, as the industry grows and producers develop more sophisticated skills, it might be possible for animation to be considered a "mature" medium and not just cartoons for kids or perverts.

What do you think, /a/?
