    Exactly, Mitch. I was about to say the say thing. I'm both a Kats fan and
an anime fan. Who ever said the two couldn't be synonymous?

    And besides, SWAT Kats is very much anime like to begin with.
Where do you think those streaking backgrounds, for instance, come from? I
would argue that if it weren't for anime and its influence, then SWAT Kats
would be, ahem, radically different than what we see now. SWAT Kats is just
what I'd expect from a synthesis of anime and H-B. Say, by any chance were the
Tremblays influenced by anime or manga? I wouldn't be surprised if they were.
