Doug McGray: Have you seen “The Boondocks,” Aaron McGruder’s new show?
Dai Sato: Yes!
Doug McGray : Do you think it’s anime? To my eye, it has a real anime aesthetic to it.
Dai Sato : Yes, I think it DOES COUNT AS ANIME. The “foreign” otaku ( USA, FRANCE, et al) might not see it that way. But I would take the stance of looking at it from a technical standpoint, and whether it belongs to this historical line of animation, or that. And it is limited animation, like Japanese anime."
