I like the various Manga in comparison to the Anime because of how it may be aimed at kids but that doesn't stop them from putting in actual effort and quality into their work. I don't hate how the Anime is for kids but I do hate how that seems to be used as an excuse to not put more elbow grease into the story. There are a lot of things of the story that the Anime could've done greatly if they put much more thought into it. It may be a toy commercial for kids but as MLP:FiM and Mobile Suit Gundam (universal century, mind you) show, the story doesn't have to suffer for it. Heck, with better storytelling, the Anime would be more loved and more would by the games.
