I was just wondering what anime you people consider artistic. I made this because a lot of people think just because an anime is cool and it's Japanese that it is automatically artistic but I don't agree sice US cartoons tend to be cool, but not always artistic. So, first list some of the anime you consider cool and artistic, the anime you consider cool but not neccessarily art, and anime you don't consider to be either. I'll start: Art: . Paranoia Agent- I consider this show to be a masterpiece at showing the frailty of the human mind and how it sees the things around it. Satoshi Kon deserves a medal for this show. . Akira- This is a very indepth portrayal of how humans are always seeking more and more power without thinking of the consequences. . Tenchi Muyo!- Suprised!? Tenchi is a very different harem anime seeing as it's story is really complex. The creators, from what I've seen and heard, are Star Wars fans and are able to combine a beatiful space opera syle with the comedic anime style we all know and love. . Fullmetal Alchemist- I like the whole theme of a war, conspiracy, and the faults of human ignorance shown in this anime. This is a rare example of philosophically enriched shonen manga. . FLCL- Great animation, hilarious jokes, tons of action;Furi Kuri reflects how we all have different choices and responsibilities as we grow into adulthood. . Tokyo Babylon- This manga is a great, and enlightening, representaion of how corrupt and dangerous human society can become. I have others but I don't feel like listing them. Cool(not art): . Naruto- Sorry, everyone,but though I like Kishimoto's manga about ninja's and various fun aspects of Japanese culture, I can't consider it art. My favorite thing about this is how it is full of suspense and tension every time there's a battle. . Yu Yu Hakusho- Great action, good story, fun and lovable characters,but not really artistic. However, it one of my favorite shonen anime . Bleach- I love this anime but it really is not too different from other shonen manga;still really cool though!! . Ranma 1/2-It's funny, edgey, and a sweaty nerd's wet dream. Ranma is what got me hooked back on anime. It is nearly artistic; it just doesn't make the cut. . Dragon Ball Z-Butt-kicking action in this baby! . Zatch/Gash Bell- It's a pretty fun show to watch. I have others but I don't feel like listing them. Bad: Here are some bad ones. Yu-Ghi-Oh- whether it is in english or not, I just don't like it. Inuyasha- I liked it before,but it got too cheesy on me. S-Cry-Ed- I just can't get interested in it!
