I don't watch something because it has artistic value or not, I watch it if I enjoy it. I can't qualify what makes something enjoyable, I either enjoy it or not.

NNB, however, is particularly shit.

Moe lies in the eye of the beholder. What is moe to the spider is worthless to the fly. Could you comprehend the moe that exists within a work such as Elfen Lied? I suspect not.

Anon, please... do you really believe that something like Uchouten Kazoku, Jinrui or SSY is deep and complex? I enjoyed them, but it always makes me laugh when people try to elevate them to some higher level and downplay slice of life shows.

Feels good to be an eclectic anime watcher who's able to appreciate all kinds of genres and watch from the side the endless war moefags and DEEPfags wage.

Its not a genre or category. Its simply a description of how characters are drawn in certain circumstances. You can say certain characters in 3/4 the anime ever made have been 'moe'. From Rei in the 'toast' scene in Eva to Ed in Cowboy Bebop to even some characters in Record of Lodoss War or Berserk in certain scenes.

its a style of drawing characters 'cute'.
>>
>>100272759
Well, it means you have shitty taste. While slice of life and other shows heavy on cute girls can be good, harems are literally the worst genre ever conceived.
I thought I can warm up to the idea of harem so I watched Nisekoi and Nourin from this season, and sorry, but I can't watch this ugly, stupid drivel. It's bad. It's really fucking bad. It's not charming and adorable like romance, it's not witth or snappy like some more obscene comedies. It's just horrible, juvenile and irritating.
>>
>>100272590
It's not hard when you compare it to something devoid of story. Hell Naruto, for all its terrible story and characterization, is better then plotless moeshit as it at least has a reason to engage to viewer other then "what cute thing will uguu-chan do this episode"
>>

>knowing full well it has little to no artistic value?
This is false. From a modernist perspective, certainly, it does lack artistic value. However, from a postmodern perspective, it is one of the most interesting things out there.
>>
>>100271568
>Why do you watch moe anime, knowing full well it has little to no artistic value?

Because I know animation isn't just art.
Its also a medium, a medium to tell a story.
And what a relaxing and enjoyable story this is.

Oh please. Even the japs refer to moe anime as moe anime.

>>100272845
This is false.

>>100273090
This is also false, if anything it would be a style of writing rather than drawing, but only in as far as there exists someone who reacts to that writing.

I suppose you would fall asleep watching some better drama films. Story isn't the most important part of film/animation. Watch some city symphonies or films without classical narrative.

You're just a pleb.

>>
>>100273368
Some of the best anime films I've seen were devoid of a conventional plot. People who are accustomed to Hollywood storytelling might be left confused as to why one would even want to make a film that tells a story where "nothing happens," SoL might be a surprisingly hard genre to get into for Westerners with a low power level.

>a form of writing

Saying its a form of writing is one thing. Proving it is another. Do the work and actually prove it.

Actual people in the anime industry like Hideki Anno have backed up what >>100273090 said, calling their own 'Rei Toast' scene pandering to 'moe'. Which they didn't plan in the script.
>>
>>100271568
You watch Japanese cartoons. You have no taste or consideration for artistic value. Fuck off.

>>100273731
When it's a style of drawing it's just called "cute" d00d. Cute things are often moe.
>>
>>100273847

So...you're backing up the previous guys claim that moe = a drawing style? Okay....
