90% of everything is shit anyway.

If only 10% of anime is better then the shows he cited, then that means that >400 titles are better (there are 4000 anime titles rated on the ANN encyclopedia). That's pretty good to me. USA: 6, Japan: 400, who's winning?

Anyway, the major problem with "adult" American animation right now is that it's extremely limited in tone. Everyshow is basically a simpsons copycat. It's all cynical, slightly snarky, "edgy" comedy. No horror, no SF, no fantasy, no romance, no drama, no variety. That's the problem with American animation. The reason everyone says anime is one genre, is because American animation is all one genre!
