Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.

I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.

Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-versus-evil to a new extreme?

The whole genre has become a breakfast, lunch, and dinner diet of pure sugar and saccharine, or leftovers drowned in ketchup and served up by marketing weenies who're too afraid of losing their jobs to break the rules.

-----------------------------------
Mang and Anime have become formulaic in how they abuse the reader's sense of cuteness, sexiness, adrenalin rushes based on violence, and so on. Here are the rules of this soulless "art" form.

Let me describe some of those rules that are stifling creativity in anime:

i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…
1) "The Wink". For some reason, a huge percentage of anime cover-art in recent years includes the main female character winking. I have no idea why it's become a standard rule, but there it is.
Try this experiment: Visit this anime/manga website e-shuushuu.net/index.php?page=… and cruise around for a minute or two. Count the percentage of female characters that wink. Compare that to the percentage of male characters that wink.

2) Good characters will be handsome/beautiful. Bad characters will have some physical defect such as a scar, obesity, unusual body proportions, etc.

3) Big Eyes. Good characters, both guys and girls, will have eyes so large and watery/glassy that they must intersect behind the character's too-small nose. No wonder they're constant crying -- having a pair of eyeballs that intersect like the olympic rings logo must be painful. Conversely, evil characters will have normally proportioned eyes with a tendency to squint.
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…

4) "Chibi" characters will have bodies with these specific distortions (similar to the "cute" proportions of a baby): big head, big chest and belly. Short arms and legs. Ultra-small hands and feet. Here're some tutorials: www.polykarbon.com/tutorials/c… chibiland.windy-goddess.net/ho…
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…

5) Good characters will be followed around by hyper-hypercute loyal "chibi" pets www.otaku-j.jp/jpmovie/ebaysup… that are somewhat alien, sentient, and not particularly good speakers.
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…

6) No character will resort to therapy, objectivity, mediation, trials, laws, or understanding. Instead, they will refuse to think about anything but how to punch, kill, and have sex with their opponents. Ummm.... not usually in exactly that order.

The love of democracy and peace will not come up-- instead, it's all about inherited power, princess-this and king-that, and bloodletting as the road to "good" guys' victory. Yup... the best parts of civilization somehow stand in the way of a typical manga storyline.

In romance stories, the male and female lead characters will either be insanely devoted and selfless to the point of standing out in rain and snow in front of their beloved's house until the coroner comes by and says "I don't DO wooden indians. Got any REAL dead people around here?", or obtusely selfish and subjective on a level that would get even a 3-year-old spanked and sent to her room for some alone-time. Both extremes are somehow considered sexy and romantic.

7) Swords are preferable to any other weapon. 2nd most popular are laserlike weapons. (Swords must be larger and heavier than the human body holding them.)


8) Female lead characters will look like 10-year-olds with Dolly Parton's thoraxic stalactites. Think "Barbie(tm), 10 years old" but with the 20-year-old Barbie's plastic boob job. www.legnome.fr/bd.html

i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…
Or, occasionally they'll be normal-looking beautiful children of prepubescent age, but engage in an adult romance at an age when real boys and girls think the opposite sex is "yucky" and "has cooties". (Somebody call the cops and child welfare services!)

9) Battle Dress: Women and girls will wear a minimum of clothing, even when going into battle with sharp knives.  Their preferred battle uniform will have massive shoulder pads but bare thighs, abdomen, knees, and biceps. Yet, somehow, no bad guys ever chop at that thigh and arm skin-- it's always unscarred. (Bad guys, on the other hand, are only allowed to have X-shaped scars, and always on a cheek or through an eyebrow.) Footwear will be either childish or sexy-impractical (barefoot or high heels, for example), never sensible choices for running across broken terrain.
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…

Their preferred non-battle uniform is the Sailor Schoolgirl uniform of Japan with a bare navel and ultra-short skirt (e.g., Sailor Moon), and a mystery wind that always flips their hair and one corner of the skirt, even when the characters are unconscious, lying on the floor in a windless room. Second-most-popular is some sort of revealing age-inappropriate swimsuit, even when attending military formal meetings.
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…
Warrior-girls elpinoy.deviantart.com/art/the… wear lots of swishy stuff like sleeves, ribbons and hair -- perfect for getting caught on things, blinding the whirling warrior-girl, and generally getting in the way.

10) Male leads will be troubled, sexually attracted to the nearest cute female character, and physically either follow the "cute" rules or have www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Pagoda… tiny heads and waists but massive shoulders created by plastic surgeons with unlimited access to www.bens.at/images/S850.jpg football shoulderpads.  Male characters' hair will be stuck forever in the "big spiky hair" mode. Even typhoon-force winds and jumps into lakes will not affect mens' hair spikes.

11) Successful TV anime will sell something violent or hypercute, and cheap and valueless, like Dragonball Z and Pokemon trading cards or My Little Pony pink pony dolls.

12) Successful TV anime characters will mutate into slightly different-looking characters if their popularity continues past the 3-year mark. This is to force fans into buying version b, c, d... of the doll, poster, gameboy, and trading-card crap that they already regret buying. Four prime examples would be "Pokemon" (additional character sets), "Ultraman", Power Rangers/Gao Rangers, and "Kamen Rider".

13) Nobody's a democrat. Hence, nobody questions the wisdom in letting a child www.otaku-j.jp/jpmovie/anime2/… lead an army www.otaku-j.jp/jpmovie/anime2/… because of inheritance or the orders of a god/king/princess/queen/prince. Likewise, nobody questions why an inexperienced, unelected "good guy" or patently evil character is permitted to be a "prince/king/princess/queen" with immense political power. Even the successful outcome of a story will not lead to the victory of basic democratic ideals.

14) www.otaku-j.jp/jpmovie/anime2/… www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Pagoda… No matter how heavy and big a sword looks compared to the character wielding it, the character can whip it around faster than a feather on a rocket, and never tires of carrying it. Neither do the characters fall over, or have any problem with the damned things banging against their legs and backsides as they climb, ride, walk, sit, or squat over latrine trenches.

15) Female lead characters will have the musculature of a kitten or a veal calf, and yet be able to leap tall buildings and carry a sword that outweighs her. The weighty sword will never cause her to lean nor her arm to tire. Take a look at these perfect examples.
First, a pink-haired, prepubescent, pedophile posterchild with a sword bigger than her leg (from here at DeviantArt): www.deviantart.com/print/20942…  Heck, she even has the "mystery wind" and "long flinging hair to tangle herself in"!
Second, a pencil sketch of a clearly undermuscled little kid with a sword bigger than her whole body: www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Pagoda…

16) "Elves" and "Faeries" are normally proportioned people, except for ludicrous pointy dog ears that stretch out at 90% angles to their heads, like wilting & poorly glued-on Spock ears.

17) Characters will have unexpected and unnatural hair colors. Teenagers will have white or gray hair without attracting scorn or comment; any character may have green, blue, or violet hair. The only possible explanation for this phenomenon is that when all your characters are beautiful and stylized in exactly the same way, hair color, wardrobe, and pets are the only way to differentiate between them.
i122.photobucket.com/albums/o2…

18) "Evil" characters will have sharp canines...twice the usual number.

19) Eyebrows of boys under the age of 7 will be permanently angry/concentrating. On handsome strong lead characters the eyebrows will be so immobile and inexpressive that one wonders if they're concrete, bo-tox, or mannequin parts. On handsome androgenous/effeminate male romantic leads, the whole face will be basically a woman's face with a man's spiky or emo haircut. images.google.com/search?q=boy+manga+characters&um=1

Conversely, all good girls' and womens' eyebrows will always be up in the middle and down at the sides, like the eyebrows of bewildered puppies looking plaintively at the sky.

20) Male evil characters (never male good guys) are permitted to have a purple/violet color scheme, even to the point of wearing violet lipstick. They will also talk in lisping high-pitched voices. This is to trigger the neanderthal audience into a homophobic revulsion against the bad guy. Likewise, bad guys are frequently overweight, drooling and ugly. Heroes, conversely, must have idealized physical proportions & avoid messiness. Yup... anime/manga are fueling our most shallow prejudices.

These are all good points to consider when watching an anime. Most anime and manga follow by these rules, which is extremely disappointing. And some of these rules play into fanservice. Fanservice is, for those who don't know, designed to "excite" the audience. This could mean sexually or when a character in a cartoon, movie, or book speak directly to the audience, often breaking the fourth wall. 

When an anime/manga writer (or any writer in general) uses fanservice, they throw away almost all potential of being a great anime or manga. Unless it's done correctly.

This is fascinatingly wrong. "Anime" means all animated works that come from japan, even ones not made with the anime art style. A live-action TV show in which puppets fight... is anime. "Manga" is the japanese term for "Comic", except it can't also mean comedian.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how a bigot thinks: Making pseudo-intellectual judgements on a large group he knows nothing about.

No. There is nothing wrong about liking it. and there are always people like or dislike a certain style.
I wonder if you are worried about whether your own taste in art is justified. I think the simplest way to approach this is to see, draw and read about different styles of art. Only then you can arrive at your own conclusion which art form is the best for you or what you think is the best.

If you simply listen to people trolling and follow them, you will still be trapped in the bandwagon, which I think that is what your are worried about?

After all, knowledge is virtue. :)

will my view matter? probably not.

I dislike anime now. I become uncomfortable when I see it. Mostly because anime nowadays is trying to appeal to audiences as heavy as they can, which brings in the whole "moe" concept, outlandish plot ideas, and... odd character writing? Anime can be used to let the writers and audience put in what they want and desire that reality cannot give them. A lot of anime fans may even ask for the things in anime. "Moe" comes into mind: moe is a concept where all good things people like in a character are injected into one single character, such as the bright round innocent eyes, heroic personality, liking food, being adorable... maybe that's what the audience wants. I'm really not fond of it, I even tried to get into a series but it ended up not suiting me.

I dislike how anime and manga are so boxed in with their character designs. Everyone can look the same with slight changes. These designs lack variety in terms of design and it makes the characters look boring. Their personalities don't even save them from the designs as a lot of anime share the same tropes for these characters. It's as if you're watching the same plot over and over, just played differently on another anime show. It's boring. It doesn't matter if two artists have different anime styles... it's still an "anime style." It's boxed in. And the tropes make me think that writers play it safe to avoid any problems.

Actually, no, I change my stance. This massive generalisation is pretty much bullshit. There's so many shades of originality and quality, which are incredibly easy to find if you just looked for it. Artists like Shigenori Soejima, Ishida Sui, Hirohiko Araki... Even the freakin' shonen trinity artists like Tite Kubo and Kishimoto. They're all quality if you just attempted to understand.

I do like anime. Very, very much. But this sums up the shit-side really well. This is everything that I hate in an anime and is why I can't enjoy most of the shit that comes out. But, despite that fact, there's still heaps of good stuff, realistic stories, as well as interesting concepts. And a lot of it still qualifies as generic! 

Dude, it is an avenue for creativity. You're just listing all the worst elements of the bad examples. I'm not really opposing your opinion, but there's an insane bias going on here.

Hi there! I'm kat! I'm 15, I started really drawing around 12ish or so as escapism from an abusive father, art helped me have something I could create and control. But then I got into manga-and the bodies were all terrible and my art became unoriginal and I wasn't happy with it, I have my own style, little bit manga little bit Disney, little bit realish. And actually buying books on anatomy, drawing from models (online models like pixel lovely and stuff). Has REALLY helped me understand more how the body works-I know I'm not a very good artist, but I put effort into understanding what I'm drawing. With manga it's all bland and unoriginal. Although much of my art gets a little mangaesque at times, it's no longer holding me back from developing my own stule

You know

There's nothing actually bad about manga. It's so friggin' easy to develop your own manga style. You just have to learn how to draw first, and it develops naturally. It's literally just drawing, but the style's leaning towards a more manga influence. It's not like it has to be super-generic-spiky hair-massive eyes-moe to be a manga style.

Don't label anime and manga as one generic art style. Because that'd label you as deluded and simple.

You are absolutely right :3 I didn't mean to sound like I was attacking-my point was that people need to study anatomy and practice what they're drawing and everything no matter WHAT they're drawing. A lot of people start out using manga bc they think they don't need to put any effort in. I'm not a good artist as you can tell, but Im learning and putting some effort in because I want to improve.But just ignore me xD I literally found this by accident-i heard someone say they don't allow manga in art schools near me (California)and was looking for information on that. I really don't have much to add to this bc again I'm 15 and draw to cope with sexual abuse as a child-not because I'm good-but because well
1. It's cheaper than therapy xD.
2.i really feel like It's saved me from giving up
and 3. I enjoy it
i can take criticism-the other day I got told I only draw lesbians and women . I get told all the time ways I can improve-i can take criticisms

(sorry for misspellings and not making sense sometimes, I'm kinda out of practice with my English lately)

Narrative and cultural differences aside, I think the generic moe-style face is what's the worst. I hate how in almost every show/manga now, there might actually be a variety of face-layouts... for secondary male characters only. Because in most cases, your main character and every not-too-old female in sight will basically have the same moe-ish face. The eye shape might vary just a tiny bit, but noses, mouths, face shapes and all the frickin proportions of the main cast faces will be identical. When passive, faces will have zero sense of personality to them. Blank generic creepy spaces, that, for whatever reason, are considered cute/beautiful to lots of people. 

I don't get it. At all. To me, unless it's chibi, those kinds of faces only look simultaneously super bland and kinda creepy. I have no problem with the old-timey faces in most of the anime/manga that camr out prior to couple of decades ago, and even now there are many actually truly creative and diverse with "the face"-stuff shows. Previous year's Mob Psycho 100, stylized as f*ck, with awesome, rough, kickass and energetic animation, with the usage of different animation-techniques was probably my favourite-looking (new) animated show from 2016, period. That's what Zack Snyder wishes he were making (if he actually had taste, and was a bit smarter, and cared about coherency of his narrative). And, guess what, the main character doesn't look Moe-ish in the slightest. He, and most of the other characters have unique faces, even with *gasp* some personality to their features.

I truly, deeply hate it when:
a. the detalization/simplification of the face doesn't match the rest of the body.
b. in a visually semi-realistic setting main cast's/all female character's faces look too simplified and 97%-100% identical to each other (I don't count eye color and accessories/scars/hair, just facial features and proportions).
c. same-face syndrome in general, for a vast cast of characters that AREN'T EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE RELATED (afain, not talking about the super-simplified, minimalistic styles, where everything else on screen matches).
d. don't even let me start on the no-nose issue. I just.. Why thy frack most mainstream mangakas/anime artists hate noses? Is there some all-japanese discrimination of the nose I'm not aware of? Nose is basically the very - only - feature, that can say a TON about the character, even if completely stationary. Why nearly/completely erase such a prominent and strong feature, that actually could have given your cast of pretty-cutie-creepy identical twins some actual individuality???

PS: to some degree, disney/western animation and (especially) mainstream superhero comics are also prone to all of these, but they don't even get close to the insane amounts of them in anime/manga.

PPS: I don't really hate manga and anime. I hate the mass-made approach in animation, over-narration/when there's too much voiceover exposition, non-funny attempts at meta humor (god, it's the second worst thing about anime in general) and the appearance of laziness.

It's not really creative if you just copy a style that's already been created TBH. And I never even mentioned Disney once, I never said that I was fine with it. They annoy me too, but not as much. Probably because you don't really see it around half as often.
