For some reason I don't understand, "artsy" is (right after "interesting") one of my favourite words. After joining other groups, I realized that none of them provides an extensive list or discussion platform for anime that are rather outside of mainstream without necessarily being 'weird'.

It's difficult to define the word, but I suppose "artsy" is what "indie" is to music or film and the shows qualified as artsy put an emphasis on animation as an art form.

The anime relations list is just a beginning - of course, more suggestions of what could fit into this description would be very welcome.

More banners:

Finally, some related clubs. Take a look at them too:
Obscure Anime/Manga
Studio 4°C
Surreal Anime

I recommed Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei for Anime of the Week.

@Dumuzi: Nineteen 19 is added, thanks! It looks quite stylish.

@fm37c: Yeah, the club (and its anime relations) were made waaaay before Tatami Galaxy turned into my almost-favorite anime. I am really bad with keeping the list up to date.

super club!

The banners sample art from Yojouhan yet it's not in the anime relations? For shame.

Hello there :)
Nineteen 19 isn't in your list ? I recommend it, as I consider it an artsy anime centered around Victor Musical's productions...
Story in it is rather secondary.

Welcome :) Typically I don't show up in MAL very often (and actually have stopped watching anime for close to 6 months), but I'm always happy to talk whenever I am here.
