>>119519791 This is wrong. >anime with good artwork Most anime have incredibly generic art style that is hardly impressive for anyone with some knowledge about animation. Good artwork is unique and original, not bland and forgettable. People who worship anime with good artwork (series like Kaiba, Tatami Galaxy or Jinrui) have nothing to do with the decline of the anime industry.
It's like asking this question about film. Yeah, anime is basically an extension of still artwork used to tell stories, so paying attention to how it works visually is of chief importance. To boil it down to "dis art looks gud, nice graphics mang" like some do, though, is cancerous.
>>119520358 I don't know about the other shows, but Kaiba presents a huge portion of it's atmosphere and even story telling through animation. The Patches episode comes to mind. It's not an exaggeration to say the leading element in that show WAS the animation. (Sound was certainly important too though)
When they say "Behind the decline of Anime" what do you think they're talking about? If the visuals are great the only thing left is the content of the anime. And yeah, if you make a high visual waifu generator, people eat that shit up. Look at INFINITE motherfucking STRATOS, it was fun to watch with /a/, but overall the story was awful, but you know what? ITS FUCKING SELLS, REALLY REALLY WELL. Its profitable to make visual pleasing harem anime, and while its fun to watch them with /a/, its not a real story, its nothing I'd brag about watching. But why put effort into a show when you know you'll make money on selling best girl figurines, merch, dvds, and licensing? Its just degrading to anime as a whole if we promote this shit.
>>119520489 >>119520519 There's still more variation than Wstern Animation. It's hard to find anything that isn't 3DCG, Flash animated or animated in the Family Guy style. The only exception I can think of is Archer (which actually debuts a new season in four hours.)
>>119520692 I didn't think the statement had anythign to do with a show like Infinite Stratos, since the implication was that the series in question have a 'good artstyle'. You're describing an anime that gets by on appealing to the lowest common denominator. That's not what comes to mind for me when I think 'good'.
>>119520713 >There's still more variation than Wstern Animation. Watch more independent works. And hell, even older CN cartoons were all pretty different.

>>119520812 You are arguing the point I am trying to make.
Inifinte Stratos isn;t good at all. But the visuals were really good, and it was extremely profitable. That screams to other producers that paying for a really good story and hard work doesn't pay nearly as well has a high def harem anime.
The same could be said about really nice visual anime that aren't Harems such has Hyoka, or fucking Aldnoah Zero. It looks really fucking nice, and sells really well. But in the end, was the content all that good? Not really.
>>119521135 >Inifinte Stratos isn;t good at all. But the visuals were really good ... Who thinks that? I don't even think fans will try that hard to pretend IS had a particulairly strong visual showing.
Alright lets just say that you're right, all of the anime I listed as visually appeal were mediocre. All I'm saying is visually appealing anime sells. However, just some pretty pictures doesn't make an anime a good anime, can you agree on that?
>>119521506 >However, just some pretty pictures doesn't make an anime a good anime, can you agree on that? Of course not, but I'll watch something that's visually stunning and has fantastic animation even if everything else about it is shit simply because I have an appreciation for technical skill.
