Animation is a medium of fewer restraints than film. While some may primarily associate it with media aimed at children, it is so much more than that. It can take a concept that, if it were attempted using film, would not work. Look at Disney or Warner Bros. It is a commentary on love, bigotry, desire, forgiveness, and what it means to be human at all. It is also completely unflinching when it comes to depicting sex acts in an uncomfortable way, blurring the line between arousal and disgust.
