The fact that some form of art begins in one place doesn't mean it has to stay there forever.
Jazz is the quintessentially American form of pop music. But one of the best composers of jazz today is a Japanese woman.
I had an interesting experience with that. In 1990 my girlfriend and I attended the World Science Fiction Convention in The Hague. We made it an extended vacation, and took about 3 weeks to tour the Netherlands. One of the places we went was a place called Dokkum. The first night we were there, they closed off all the streets and had a street party. And so it was that I traveled all the way to Europe to listen to one of the best Dixieland bands I've ever heard. They were great! It was a blast sitting there, drinking beer, listening to them.
Art belongs to everyone.

I find it curious though that there seems to be a discussion about the term 'manga', but most people seem to agree that a cartoon cannot be called 'anime' if it's not from Japan.
