Of course it's art. really? this is up for debate? i mean writing, drawing, singing, and dancing are all arts... does no one pay attention to that at all? even science is an art. Anime is drawings brought to life sure it might some times not be pretty and other times kinda gross, but it is art no questions asked (I am an anime artist so there)

I'd say it depends on the work and whether those involved in the production of the anime consider their work art or not. It also depends on what the creator is trying to do with it. Is it simply for entertainment or are they expressing a specific purpose?

anime is art no matter what because someone put their time and effort into making it

it depends. I wouldn't call something like ikkitosen or queens blade "art" but then there are thing like fate zero and madoka which i do consider art.

Note: fate zero and madoka aren't the only two animes that i consider "art" they are just the first that came to mind

anything that expresses emotion or tells a story is art. art is a pretty vague label as anything can be art. i think art has to have equal amount of effort and creativity, so yes, anime/manga take buttloads of time to make and perfect, and it expresses something, so imo, yes it is art.

Anything can be art. It all depends on how the ideas are presented.

Hell yeah, just look at the creative nature behind it. The stories, the artwork, characters, personality of the anime/manga. It is an art an a find an dedicated one if you ask me =p =p =p

To me, the definition of art is a piece of work created in order to express ones feelings or thoughts at a given moment, a clever piece of art provokes others thoughts and feelings aswell as the artists, an excellent piece of art makes you feel.

The drawing of anime is a basic art form to me, it's as simple as drawing, a potrait of a womans face is art, correct? So shouldn't a drawing of a women in a different style also be art?

Then I believe this drawing/art form truely becomes art by how the mangaka or animator builds upon those drawings, depending on the connection it makes to the audience or if it provokes a response no matter how little, then anime becomes a classic piece of art.
