and foremost anime and cartoons are not the same and many adults who
don't watch anime because they feel that anime is made for kids just
like cartoons but in reality anime is made for audiences is made for all

I mean they grow as a person as the story progresses and they question
deep feelings that you would not find in cartoons.
people are amoral so they don't have the same morals as us like we

was going to die soon.
