If Anime art wont be appealing and does have a good story line, then anime wouldnt be as popular as it is now. Anime would eventually be just cartoon not anime itself. That's all I have to say.....

I understand where your coming from with the idea that the 'art' makes the anime. I agree with you on some points, but i can't agree with you on all. I think that the art does HELP sell and make certain animes popular, but i don't agree that they MAKE the anime. The plot - to me - is an important part, but having totally hot characters usually helps the anime A LOT. A good plot can also help the anime. Even if all of the animes characters are good looking, but the anime has no plot, yes it will sell in the beginning just because people have taken a like to its characters, the anime won't go far. The most i've seen with animes like this only come out with 1 or 2 complete episodes that end in a rather disappointing way. So that's why i stick with animes that have sexy characters and amazing plots.

~ i rest my case.

sexy anime characters or not, the story has to be interesting for me to keep watching...

though I am not gonna lie, having good looking characters (good character design) is really what makes the anime interesting at first

It's the story that's most important for me, but if the art is absolutely atrocious, it is a bit of a turn off.

And I don't like Vampire Knight.

art is still part of the anime, but it doesnt necessarily make the whole anime. 1st and foremost is plot. 2nd is art cuz that's what draws ppl in........having sexy characters and all that jazz is just a big bonus, at least for me.

I see what you're saying and I agree that people will love a fluffy anime and claim it to be the best if it's a beautifully drawn piece. However you can't really stop that. People are drawn to cheap stories and pretty pictures, even if they have no depth. It may suck but it can't be helped. On the other side, people may pass over a genius anime like Monster just because the characters aren't cutsy and streamlined (though Johan is the sexiest anime guy ever).

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. >_>
dude... i so agree with u!! honestly peeps need a good story not just sexy charactrs!! thn again.. i am a fan of the arts...

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

I don't think it's all about the art though......yeah sure art is the most appealing aspect that animes should have in their drawing, but still, the plot, the storyline, the climax are also important as much as the drawing.....

It's only my opinion though. I also look for the drawing first when I try to search for good animes or manga.

i actually AGREE with you. most of my friends that watches anime or drama, ONLY watches if the anime character has a good quality cartoon. and basically having a HOT character playing the main. as for drama, most of my friends would watch the dramas that has a really popular actor in it or to have a really hot actors playing the story.

its basically base on how the visual apprrence
