Why does the fact that it's influenced by anime mean that anime is better, Cat? You've just completed avoided the issue.
As for your attempt at a strawman -
A strawman? Did you or did you not claim that DBZ is better than Avatar because Avatar was 'derived' from it?
That is your argument, stated accurately.
Okay, so comparing her father, not her mother, neither of which are actors, to an actor and saying which is the best at acting... when the comparison posed by Hunter is a North American cartoon compared to three anime franchises, all of them tv shows... yeah that makes so much sense.
Compare orange to stone much on taste there?
Oh but actor>fertility specialist and gynecologist>house wife.
Actually, I compared her to a ballsack, which does even less acting. Plus, I never said the ballsack was a better actor.
I didn't specify in which capacities it was better. For example, it's plainly better when it comes to producing semen. But it's not better than Natalie at cum-production because it chronologically preceded her
, it's better because its an organ that evolved for that purpose .
This is the kind of pointless conversation you get into when you nitpick. Go-nowhere pedantry competitions. A better discussion to have would be:What's your point?
Analogies are there to illustrate points, they're not evidence of anything. The point I was making is fairly obvious: the fact that Avatar draws on anime in no way diminishes its quality or suggests that anime is superior. It's irrelevant.
Do you have an argument that would refute this?
Like I said, folks are going to go the way I pointed out. Not an anime watcher, they'll favor LA over the anime period. So all he did was an awesome fail as his analogy was incredibly poor to the point that it did not work at all, mine stands as it works. Mine based in reality, his baseless as it failed to note the facts of not only his attempted analogy but also of the shows involved.
Liked best? Always a personal call.
Best in a quality? A call made on fact, not fictions or personal tastes.
Value is extrinsic. If you like anime that is a fact about your preferences, it's not a fact about anime. Unless you're using the word 'quality' to mean something like, 'the date it was released,' then I'm afraid that qualitative judgements are also extrinsic.
