You all know what I mean.

I mean, what's become of anime?

Vampire Knight for one, is only popular due to the millions of fangirls that just want to see some hot vampire action.

on our current time, story, and the plot doesn't seem to matter as much as it looks good. (Art)

As long as the art is sexy and appealing, the majority will eat it right up.


how 'bout, we keep the same storyline, but instead of the characters looking like this:


they looked like this?



not so appealing now is it? (eh, but this can be said of any anime)
but you see my point. >.>

final thoughts: (still using vk as an example) the whole vampie concept (licking, biting, sucking) is already a popular concepts, but when you add that with exceptionally well drawn characters, you suddenly get "this is the best series ever" >___>

*pointless rant end*

Lmao....Quoted for truth. Damn kids these days need to learn how to enjoy a good old school anime with a good storyline. >_>

I miss the insane occult 80s/early 90s demon-based anime, like Violence Jack and the Devilman OVAs....I'd take extremely nightmarish demons that'd make you shit yourself if you ran into them in a dark alley. Over an androgynous vampire who'd make me think "Damn, that chick is hot- No..Wait that's a dud- AGH *Get's bitten*" XDDDD

even if you use vk as a example..~sigh~ another vampire knight hate thread.. some people are sick of hearing of fangirls and (fanboys) too, im sick of hearing of how people hate it, it goes on and on and on. It's popular people like it, including me so just get over it everyone.
Posted 9/2/08 , edited 9/2/08
umm..no way...people have different ciriteria about what they want in animes..
PLOT - 50%
ARTWORK/ANIMATION - 50%
hehe, so, for me, if the characters look like your 2nd pic, then hell no..i wouldn't try that..honestly..

I was just using vk as an example. (this topic is about anime in general)

another example is Kanokon. xD which was just basically 12 episodes of fan service.

If you are talking about fanservice, then yep, most ppl fall for it.
And I think the vampire knight series is overrated anyway, in fact the whole vampire genre is overrated.
However, one reason I prefer anime over western cartoons is definitely because of their beautiful art, so I will have to say that art style is a definite point for most anime.

yea, agreed, still thats how humans, or generally mammals work, for example you see a cute/sexy girl making a mistake(in this case lousy storyline), people will go "aw, so cute/sexy, forgiven!", same mistake done by an uber ugly person and people will go "wtf?! go away!" law of nature, the more dependent a species is on a particular sense, the more it will rely it to judge.
