I think Teen Titans is not my favorite cartoon only because I don't see it as a cartoon - it stays in a fine line between cartoon and anime. I find it amusing how the characters have some development but the plot is not that complicated. That way, almost all of the episodes are connected but can be watched individually.
So sad that Terra didn't fit into the composition, the panels were already too narrow OTL . I never got through Terra, I wish I could know what happens to her T^T *cries rivers*
