Okay as for my dad's study on Anime fanatics being dumb...You have to remember, that's just a conjecture, just because his study clearly showed that most Anime fans have lower than normal IQ's, doesn't mean everyone of them do.
As for you guys keep coming up with the bullshit about US shows having "Bad plot lines" Thats complete bullshit, there are many TV shows out there in the US that have great plot lines.
In my perspective, Anime plots are all the same thing, there was one movie I watched, Spirited Away, which I thought was pretty cool, but it seems like every Anime TV show, or movie has a very similar plots to each other. I mean its always some dumbass paranormal crap that takes over a town or large area, then some guy comes in and destroys it somehow.
As far as it being a "Detailed" animation, thats bullshit...every shot is just a guy's mouth moving, or some sort of ridiculous walking motion..look at the people in the backgrounds for God's sake, they're all still and not moving...
