Yeah... There's someone in my elementary grade..... She said that she wants to be a comic artist... and another classmate of mine whispering to her friend," Her drawing suck .... She's expecting too much..." .. And I was offended to at that time too, because I want to be mangaka too... = = " And my drawing is below average... I think... = = " I think you need a fine story first, then you can make a good anime... If the graphics is so good, but the story isn't good... I don't think it'd be popular... or liked by everyone.... but yeah... graphics is important too... but story is more important, I think... = ="

im not saying shin chans art is crap. i know its there to fit the humor but im just saying u dont always need hig level kind of art to match the mood of the anime. there are some animations where the art is simplistic and eye catching and the story is wonderful.

Depends on the type of series.

Shin Chan works because of the humor and nature of the jokes. I bet if you tried to use same artwork for a drama or more serious style series, a decent amount of people would be put off by it.

If you have a good enough story/plot the level of animation can be average without hurting it too much. It doesn't have to have a whole lot of depth to it as long as people find it entertaining.

anime is usually better if the graphics are better because if the graphics are horrible, then it is usually a comedy

Appealing art goes along with the anime. If the art is bad most people won't stick around for the story.

Disagree.

The story is important, but the art is more important. People won't watch a romance anime with horrible art, or an action anime with cute characters. The art has to go along with the genre or no one is gonna look at it.

No.The art style is irrelevant. Unless of course, the people watching it are obsessed with writing,reading and drawing yaoi and yuri fiction.


No anime can match up to the unadulterated badass-ness of Akagi and Kaiji, even though the art is not very .... orthodox.

That's too bad because I hate Shin-chan.

No you don't need to be able to draw well. BUT you definitely needs your own style. As long as you got style and good plot and character you're good. Not everyone like the same style after all, but make sure that the style fits the type of story. I still strongly advise practicing though, it reduces the freakiness and attracts people.

i didn't say u can make a good anime with "crap" art. i said anything original, creative, which can use simplistic shapes but still be eye catching can still be a very good anime if it has great art. doesn't matter what genre.

yea, I agree, people shouldnt judge an anime by the its art style : )
