Theories of Art
Philosophers of Art
Some famous philosophers of art are Plato and Aristotle
Plato believed that works of art should mimic reality and he viewed that nature set the standard for beauty
In Anime, Plato views are addressed in the different genres, such as fiction vs non-fiction or fantasy vs reality.
Plato also believed that art effects peoples emotions and that good art should encourage good behavior
Aristotle disagreed with Plato and he argued that the principle of art for arts sake, remove emotions when viewing art. He also believed that art should be censored
However, Anime is more focused on Platos views and less of Arsitotle beliefs.
Definitions Of Anime
A style of animation originating in Japan that is characterized by stark colorful graphics depicting vibrant character in action-filled plots often with fantastic themes.
A japanese style of motion-picture animation, characterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sexuality.
A style of Japanese film and television animation, typically aimed at adults as well as children.
Historical Background of Anime cont.
In 1986 , the artist, Akira Toriyama, released the series Dragon Ball, which became one of Japan's most popular anime shows

Miyazaki, one of Japan´s greatest animation directors stunned the world with his movies Nausicaä in the Valley of the Wind, and then again with Castle in the Sky.

In 1988 the world received a blast with the graphically violent and gruesome anime, Akira, which was an international hit.

In 1995, Hideaki Anno would create a series that would still be debated today on its meaning within the anime community. “Neon Genesis Evangelion” was a deconstruction of the mecha show that would focus not so much on the giant fighting robots but on the people behind them.

On top of that, Anno hinted at many allusions to imagery from other religions throughout the show, the most notable being Christianity. With its popularity also came controversy. Along with the show being violent and containing some sexual material, it also had an ending that caused fans of the show to scratch their heads.
Historical Background of Anime
Anime originated somewhere beteween 1907 and 1911, when an unknown animator produced a short movie that showed a boy in a salior suit writing some kanji, turning around, removing his hat and giving a salute.

Japanese animation until the mid-1930s, generally used cutout animation instead of cel animation because the celluloid was too expensive. This resulted in animation that seemed derivative, flat and without detail.

In the 1930s the Japanese government began enforcing cultural nationalism. This lead to a strict censorship a control of published media. Animations that enforced the Japanese spirit and national affiliation were made.

In 1951, Osamu Tezuka created the milestone manga, Tetsuwan Atom or Astro Boy. Successive generations of manga and anime artists discovered the flexibility of Tezuka's character designs and adapted them into their own diverse works. He became responsible for the success of anime and manga worldwide.

During the 1970s, anime developed even further, separating it from its Western roots. A succesful anime aimed to children was created in 1974, called Heidi, Girl of The Alps. It was so succesful in Japan and other European countries that it influenced many directors to start up literary based animes. A new genre came into being at this time, called mecha, characterized by the use of robots or machines controlled by other people.

Is this works of art or not?

Theories of art are Mimesis, Foramalism and Expressionism. Mimesis means to mimic or imitate and it creates illusions of reality. In Anime the theory of Mimesis is used in the different genres of fiction vs non-fiction or fantasy vs reality.
Formalism is the idea of judging work only on how well it conforms to its formal properties of its work. For example, Amine can be judged on how good the plot is and how entertaining it would be for an audience.
Expressionism is the idea of the emotional qualities of art. They argue formal elements of art can help a work of art evoke strong feelings. The storyline, soundtracks, settings and attachment to characters in Anime can allow you to have an emotional impact.
In conclusion...

In conclusion our group agrees to the statement, "Anime has Artistic Merit because of it's Creativity," due to the creative connections and interactions it presents to it's audience.

Anime Nowadays
This informative video demonstrates how the process and creation is very difficult, as some may believe that it is easy. It is a way to self-express yourself/ story tell and holding no limits also adding your own unique flair to your creation. As well as it being something different compared to drawings or paintings because there are a wide variety of things that take place, such as the music, backgrounds and characters.
The production of Anime has adapted over time along with technology. Now animation software focuses more on realism of settings, like the use of camera effects, zooming and angle shots.
The Anime industry includes over 430 production studios and Anime has seen internation success after some of the programs were english-dubbed.
