That would be horrible. Mindless violence for an entire half hour? No. Games are good.

Brawl's story mode would translate better, but not by much.

I think that would be awesome as a CGI animation movie.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

"Anime" is not an artstyle, you twats. It's a term that means "Japanese cartoons". You can't say an entire country's production of a particular medium sucks.

(as for why people call it "anime" instead of "Japanese cartoons"? Uh... good question, really. It's really quite silly if you think about it)

Adamant

They did make a Mario anime, it just wasn't ever released in America.

@ Adamant

I know a lot of people who can't stand anime. It's a preference, just like anything else.

How can it be a "preference" to not stand anything just because it's from one specific country? Do they hate all German novels and Italian music, too?

It's not a preference, it's just blind unsubstantiated hatred.

Adamant

It can be a preference, Adamant. Animes have a certain style. They are very different from American cartoons, and that might not click with some people.

Adamant

No, they're just... cartoons.. from Japan. Do they hate ALL cartoons that aren't American? French cartoons? British cartoons? Italian cartoons? Why does it even matter so much which country they're from?

To tell you the truth, the only cartoons I watch are anymore are American. not the newer ones mind you

@cheetahman: some of the new cartoons, are really good. ever watched Chowder? hilarious.

as far as reasons why there is no mario anime, there's easily OVER 9,000! none of which really need to be stated.

They are cartoons from Japan Adamant, you're right, but they're different than those Americans are accustomed to. Some people just don't care for them.

@ bro2dragons

Chowder is kinda funny, I've only seen a little.

Calm down guys, I think a Mario anime could work but 4Kids would get the rights to the English dub and screw it up like they did with Sonic X. Mario needs an anime but then again 4Kids would ruin the English dub. Imagine someone replacing Charles Martinet.

When the average person thinks of anime they think of the mass-produced crap which is nearly identical in a number of key areas. I guess good anime exists but after having a roommate that blared Dragon Ball all the time I don't have the heart to hunt for it.

a mario anime would be very entertaining and 4kids wouldn't be able to touch it for 2 reasons

1. 4kids was hit hard by the recession, so they're planning to sell out
2. shigeru miyamoto wouldn't let 4kids touch a mario anime because he was very displeased with the live action super mario bros. movie (same reason that no live action zelda movie exists) so he won't let any anime or movie based on his creations go anywhere without his approval

Now I agree with that. Chowder is one of the very few cartoons left that are good. All the others are cancelled, or just plain old.

It worked for Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. Take those kinds of shows and couple it with all those Nintendo characters the kids like, and Id think we'd have a winner.

@Kid A. Not all anime sucks. Just most of it.

@Bro2. Huzzah! I thought I was the only 18-year-old who watched Chowder!

@Ricardo: no, sir, you certainly are not. first the rorshach avi, now the Chowder fanship... you're quickly ascending the ranks of coolest NLifers.

Why? Because Nintendo's not stupid and is careful with where they use their recognized and loved characters and creations.

They know not to screw things up and flood the market like with Sonic.

You know guys; Anime isn't all like Dragonball Z. There is a whole lot more variety then that. It can span from different genres like comedy, action, romance, fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, adventure, and more. There are also Anime that are based off of Japanese folklore, and real events. It can also be based off of school, sports, ect. Dragonball Z is just a show that doesn't really have much besides having overly violent fighting that last too long. All other Anime are barley even like that, and they have a more and better story line too.

Just go look at some recommendation lists for people that are starting to get into Anime, find a website or TV channel with Anime, and watch them. I'm sure you'll at least find some Anime that are much better then Dragonball Z.

Dragonball is an excellent series, people. What, have you all only watched some awful English dub or something?
