" @ronat1 said:Well youre right with that (Haruhi Suzumiya´s second season really WAS a piece of crap), but even when you have bad show´s in both sides I found myself watching more anime than cartoons these days. There are good cartoon shows, thats for sure, but I think there is more good anime than good cartoons nowdays." I agree with Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto, and, if I had to decide between both I´d say anime, but still its a very hard question, since I have enjoyed many anime and american cartoons, the thing is that nowdays cartoons are not as good as they used to be, while anime keeps releasing really good stuff the whole time. "As much as I'd like to agree with you, flip side applies as well. There are anime that're coming out that just aren't up to par with what they could've been (Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 being an example), whilst there are some great cartoons here that have been released in the past decade or so (one of my personal favs being Megas XLR, poking fun at video game culture, Jersey folk, mecha, aliens, and sci-fi in general).
