Is Anime Artistic?
I don't know if a thread was made on this already, but would you consider this:

You can consider the story art.

RE: Is Anime Artistic?
Both of them are works of art perhaps, but I like the first one more. Its sort of a legend kind of art. The second is just generic Japanese anime art ... boring.

Yes, anime is art. Then again, the paint splatters of Jackson Pollock are also art. 

Just because something qualifies as 'art' doesn't mean that 1) it doesn't suck, and 2) I don't hate it.

Art yes, good art, no.

Can't see the images.

I would label it, by definition, art, if we're using a broad meaning of the word.
In the same breath comics are art. And while I enjoy my 'Tintin', 'alleen' and 'Chinaman', I sooner think of those under the banner 'entertainment'.
Movies, tv-series, videogames, anime, manga, cartoons, comics, ... Garfield could be concidered art. And I'm not gonna fight that label. Because I don't think it's wrong. But it's not exactly what we think of when we hear 'art', I think.

I sign all my posts. Opinions are divided on the merits of this.

After graffiti anything is "art". And we need a new word for the good stuff.
