Pic's from Vol. 4. Lol.

They're watching; they're just not hear, in what is basically now just the "let's talk about Dragonball" forum.

Oh, Ive been watching. The other RWBY fans from around here dont generally post in the anime subforum though but whatever. As kinda mentioned too, no topic that isnt Dragon Ball usually sticks here for that long...

But yeah, season 5 has been lookin up since the last episode. The Blazblue Cross Tag Battle game is also highly anticipated for the Rwby character inclusions, despite the saltiness it has caused for the fake anime haters.

What's fcuked up about it?

Anime isn't a genre or even a style. It's just a catchall term for animation from Japan.

Except for the fact that people have categorical definitions of real and fake animes.

You say anime and there's a definite type of animation people think of, so it kind has become a genre of its own with tons of sub-genres.

Well, yes. "Real" anime refers to animation from Japan. Simple.

People may think of a certain kind of animation but the term doesn't actually refer to such. At the end of the day, it's simply not a genre.

Ugh. I'm so f**king tired of this. The whole "anime or not" debacle is well beyond pedantic and serves no purpose beyond validating unfounded purism, because what else can you expect other than for people to be so pathetically insecure with their hobbies that they have to fit them into some nonsensically esoteric mold in order to feel safe indulging in it.

Let's just clear one thing up before this subject overstays its welcome any further: "anime" [アニメ] is simply (and was originally) Japan's abreviated term for anything animated; this should be common knowledge amongst hobbyists and enthusiasts by now. We're just the dumbasses who arbitrarily assigned a specific meaning to a word we didn't coin, but hey, if we all want to continue using it to describe the style of animation, that's fine. Just don't pretend as the accident of one's birth in a country other than Japan somehow circumstancially disqualifies them from taking up the art form with intentions of some day capitalizing on it.

This is why you seldom--if ever--hear this shit from artists (or at least I don't, and I'm surrounded by them), and I have a difficult time believing any self-respecting artist would ever entertain such a notion. I find it's usually misguided anime nerds, some of whom have likely never drawn a damn thing in their lives, who attempt to artificially restrict by nationality or whatever else. (By similar rationale, you've never actually had pizza, so you should probably find a new name for it.) Before anyone asks, no, I'm not at all suggesting that no one can be critical of art without being artists themselves; that would be absurd and make me no better. What I'm saying is that it's ridiculously narrow-minded to act as if you can deny an artistic right to certain people, especially those whove worked for it, just because it makes you uncomfortable.

I don't believe for a minute that it's defined by surface level ideas such as a generic "look" or where in the world it was produced; it runs much deeper than that I think. Rather, it's more about how it's made (production methods, general creative/artistic process) and the ideas behind it (style, themes, structure, progression, narrative, etc.). Those are the things we should all be more closely observing before we nervously jump to conclusions about the nature of one's creation before having put forth any thought or effort to understand it past "made in (NOT Japan)."

Besides, I really don't understand where some Western elitists get off trying to redefine one of Japan's own terms for them in a case where Japan could seemingly care less. Anyways, this is this last I'll be saying on the matter hear. I'm already saying more than I probably should after having suddenly been reminded why a RWBY thread was never previously introduced on this site--because apparently no one can make it through the first seven posts (from the time this was written, which will make it late) without immediately derailing it into this shit, which is really the only reason I felt the need to say anything in the first place. I othersise wouldn't have even bothered for fear that it would fall on deaf ears regardless.

Good video on the subject, imo. RWBYs on crunchyroll too, despite the Japan anime purists kicking and screaming about it.

You just don't consider Rwby to be anime because you're insecure and afraid to indulge in anime unless it's exclusively... something or another. Also, you don't have the right to arbitrarily define what is and isn't anime, but I do, because I know people who draw.


Dear god.

Hinestly forgot Monty said that. Basically what I was trying to say, but better and far more concise.

That's fine. I can forgive that. Putting words in my mouth and misrepresenting my stance to excuse purposely ignoring the intended message, however...
