Why don't females in anime have actual full-on lips drawn more often? Not those shades of pink that only show up when a character gets super close to girl, but actual consistent, shapely lips.

Even after almost a decade of following chinese cartoons I still wish it was a thing.

Does you waifu have lips?

Monogatari does it often. I feel like japan thinks giving lips makes characters look more mature/alluring and thus only use it for sensual scenes or older characters.

Because it usually doesn't end up looking as good. Poorly drawn lips are worse than none at all, and when drawing anime it's best to include only details that have a reason to be there and can be pulled off well. Furthermore, when they're not used in close-ups they generally make it look like the character is wearing lipstick, which is usually not the case.

Now if you want to complain about lazy mouth drawing, sidemouth is a bigger problem than liplessness.

>>102135459
Anime design is based on removing as many details as possible from the face and putting them all in the eyes. It's why noses are nothing more than a speck and a few lines will increase the age of a woman by 20 years.

Anime style drawing is based on simplification now. Every line you add makes a huge difference in the characters. Adding details to the lips would attract too much of the attention., if you want to maintain the balance you should add details to the eyes, nose and everything making it look like 80s or 90s anime.
