No. Many Gainax employees, including those that went on to found / work at Studio Trigger were huge fans of western animation. Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt was, by their own admission, an attempt to create an anime in a western cartoon style. Yoh Yoshinari's style is heavily influenced by western animation, and he does fanart of characters from late 90's / early 2000's Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon all the time. And on top of that, many people in Japan *love* French animation. They've had multiple high-profile studio collaborations now.

And if you're going to argue that Manga as we know it did *not* start with Osamu Tezuka, who was *not* inspired by animated Disney films of his era, and did *not* want to mix it with regional cartooning styles to create something new, then you've got an uphill battle against historians and historical record.

Artists are artists, both eastern and western. They take in what inspires them, and spit out a unique remix of all the things they like. We like anime and manga because they're different. If you grow up in Japan surrounded by manga volumes and anime girl posters, do you really think you're *not* going to see cartoons from the west and their weird bubbly designs as something different and fresh? Art and animation in both the west and in Japan are the result of a decades-long cultural trade that can and will continue, changing both sides of the medium forever. This is how art works in general. Music, sculpture, videogames, painting--all of them are influenced by their counterparts in other parts of the world. That's how art changes, becomes more interesting.

If this isn't something you can accept, then I don't know what to tell you.
