In Japan, they call animation "anime." In English, we use the word to denote a wide style of art.

Flowers of Evil is anime by both definitions. The style of art is unique, but the same is true for Madoka Magica and plenty of other anime.

It's not as deadlocked as you are making it out to be; both art and the definitions of words are fluid and ever-changing.

Seems interesting enough. Would be nice if CR could license it. I wasn't too fond of the main character's voice acting in the trailer, but it could just be that I'm not used to hearing Arabic in animations (or most other things, really).

The plot seems to be too generic for even for a super robot genre, the artstyle is dated but forgivable since it is their first attempt,

TBH, I'm not hype up with this just because some Middle-Easterners created a Japanese-style cartoon.

I will admit I'm extremely surprised, like EXTREMELY.

But I'm going to keep my eye on it. I think that would be awesome if it was licensed to CR.

The definition of words varies by region and language.

In English, similar to cartoon, anime is a style. This adheres to the anime style, so it is anime.

In Japan, anime is short for "animation," so they call anything animated there "anime."

That said, I'm excited to see what they produce. It's obvious their hearts are in it.


I agree with this. It has that style so it's considered an anime, just like how I would consider The Legend of Korra an anime and how I wouldn't call Family Guy an anime.

But shows like The Bondocks, I wouldn't know where to categorize that because each episode is individual from the next and doesn't really follow a story like Family Guy, South Park, Simpons, etc. But it looks like japanese animation.

But I would say anime and cartoons can be put into different categories.

Funny you mention Flowers of Evil. Whenever I talked it up to other anime fans, I'd always qualify it by saying, "it's not very anime-like in its style." Just because a cartoon is made in Japan, does that make it anime? I think the term implies a certain aesthetic. The best definition is probably the one Potter Stewart would give: "I know it when I see it."

Attack on Titan's plot: giant monsters attack a village and a boy vows revenge against them.

That's generic to a fault, but AoT is one of the best shows of the past decade, hands down. Thing is, the plot doesn't actually matter much, it's how it's done, and the quality of the characters that make entertainment good.

I wouldn't call it one of the best shows of the past decade - AoT to me is like a lot of fun Summer blockbuster movies. Good entertainment, good time, good effects - but not more than that, and lacking in plot. There are a lot of plot holes besides, and other problems as well. It's fun, but not a classic and never will be. It's popular like many a Summer blockbuster because it knows how to cater to the masses, and how to appeal to them. By focusing on the fun things, the plot can take a bit of a breather and then some.

I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

(But then again, this is all my personal opinion).

A well written plot creates a sequence or pattern of events that is well defined and has a definite direction. It also gives the characters drive, purpose and growth on what they pursue.

To say that plot doesn't have much impact to the story also means that the characters doesn't have much room to grow and developed.

Plot means absolutely nothing. All the plot has to do is make sense, really. Everything has been done before, so originality is a bad vantage point. What plot holes do you speak of?

Attack on Titan, IMO, is great because it's realistic. Great example of human character.

Eren's mom died because there was no superhero to save her. Other people, even characters who have been around for a while, die at the drop of a hat. Several important decisions have to be made, and sometimes the wrong decision is made and there's a steep price (unlike most anime where a grim fate is somehow avoided). Characters have understandable emotions and reactions (Armin's scream at the end of episode 5--when something that mortifying happens, no one actually says "Noooooooo!", it's more of a sudden, unkempt scream).

Also, there's a lot we don't know. What does Eren's dad know? Where/who is he? Could ask more questions but don't wanna spoil it for whose who aren't current.

Anyway, the entire point of entertainment is to entertain, lol. AoT does a marvelous job of that, so even if it does have flaws (everything does, especially things as complex as AoT), it's still one of the best, hands-down.

What do you think is better than AoT? Please god don't say SAO, lol
