The Fellowship for Comprehensive Appreciation of Anime

Anime revolution

In short (read the spoiler tags for a super long rant, but with a lot of information):

People only care about moe, suspense and story. All other aspects aren't important in their eyes. Aspects like animation, editing, character development and music. That's why outsiders don't treat anime seriously. And it's about time to change that.

Who am I, and why do I whine so much?
A 20 year old student who studies for animation, who also wants to make people realize that there's more to anime than the usual otaku culture.

What defines the quality then?
Animation, editing, music, character development and many other things that is seemingly not important, but subconsciously is.

What does NOT define the quality?
While moe is a cool aspect, don't forget that it doesn't necesarily define the quality. I like moe too, but is everything that's moe good? No, I like a quality anime WITH moe, if it's possible.

And there's no such thing as an elite genre. Serious stories aren't per se better. It's up to the studio to make an anime good or bad.

What can you do?
You can convey the message, orally, virtually, whatever, just do it.
You can also help by inviting other members.

Thanks for the support!

Ladies and gentlemen, sharpen your swords, pikes and battleaxes, and don't forget to boil the tar: the newest school idol series is airing, so fangirls and moetards are expected to be arriving at the gates in short order.

Love Live! School Idol Project started on January, 6, and it's being compared to K-On, iDOLM@STER and AKB0048... 'nuff said!

Currently, I'm writing the lines for the narrator. I want to be as objective as possible, but still being able to convince people how important anime is as a medium, not just as "moving manga".

That's why I'm writing a draft right now. It's pretty general, but as I keep writing day after day, I'll correct paragraphs, add more information, delete unnecessary lines, etc. I'll publish it online someday, so people add their opinions to it too, and correct whatever is wrong.

Seems like the project's finally off the ground.

I have whatever would likely be necessary (depending on how we decide to do it).

The first aspect would primarily be writing a script - the info we want to get across and then organize it into specific smaller areas or scenes.

Well, I always wanted to do it, but what stops me is, I don't have the right programs to do it (no way I'm going to use WMM). I also need to write a hole plan first.

What do we need to include in the documentary? The vital arguments especially. And from which series are we going to show fragments of? Stuff like that.

Documentary - sounds good. Why don't we actually do it?

We can brainstorm a plan then just go for it - things can be adjusted as necessary along the way.

I also have some doubts about Madoka. I really liked that series, don't get me wrong. I also rated it a 9. But now that I think of it, does our theory here apply to the series?

Really, though, dedicated forum threads for nominations and related arguments/explanations might be a good idea.
Well, there's Critics & Connoisseurs. It's quite a hassle to maintain though.

Incidentally, we've already discussed Madoka★Magica a few weeks ago, and Miki Sayaka was among this week's discussions. Beware the walls of text.
