I love this guys assumption that because the population isn't pumping out brats left, right and center it`s a `decaying nation`... what utter bullpoo. I see a decaying nation, they`re procreating like rats, and it`s not Japan folks.

Jim, anime, unlike western cartoons, is a film language that fits in a similar position as soap operas. Western cartoons are closer to childrens' stage theatre. As I type this, "Code Geass, Lelouch of the Rebellion" is going on the other PC. A bare ass`d shot of a girl in a shower is on the screen.
Expensive western comics are so because the art skill level increased through the 90`s so that the work is sometimes related to museum art, increasing the collection value.
As for myself, I`m just into the narrative, soap opera aspect of both anime and western comics. I like the story implications more than the science fiction but, would not buy it without the sci-fi.
