    "An Anime Artist's Retort to the Anti-Anime Artist"(NSFW)

    I haven't been following the burning anime threads here (too busy drawing) so pardon me if this opinion piece was already mentioned here before. Pic unrelated to article but included for educational purposes.


    http://news.deviantart.com/article/35005/ (actual article begins where it says "Issue Eight" in bold text)


    So why do Anti-Anime Artists act the way they do towards us Anime Artists?

    Reason Four: ... Anti-Anime Artists are jealous of Anime Artists.

    Reason #5: Fear of the unknown + Not the status quo = Anti-Anime Artists

    i'm really confused is there anything called anti anime artist , i think if work is done really good , people will admire it .but if it looks cheap , don't expect anyone to put a high price on it., i think the person who wrote this was just over reacting. he should try harder to get a beter reponse.this article should just be ignored.

    I think it's actually the opposite with "Fear of the unknown". Especially when cheap manga artist enters CA forum .

    The fact is, Manga was an Axis creation during World War II. Hitler and Goering were looking for a way to spread the Nazi message in a more populist form and both being great fans of Disney (believe it or not) they engaged their culture ministry to obtain some cartoon artists in germany to create a popular style to use in propaganda posters. The German artists failed to live up to Hitler's wishes (Hitler having been an artist himself) so Hitler essentially outsourced the creation of these propaganda cartoons to Japan. Hirohito was glad to oblige, formed a huge studio of Japans best cartoonists, and this is why Manga came out of Japan.

    Quite a bit of early Manga had hidden swastikas in the hair of the characters as secret code demonstrating its origin. Of course very few nowadays know the origins of Manga, so many draw the hair without the swastikas.

    One of the reasons so few know about the origins of manga is because the main studio producing the propaganda was destroyed in the first atomic bomb blast. (It was right near the Nissan steel plant, which produced war material and had not yet started making cars, which I think first happened in the late 1950s or early 60s)

    Anyhow, before anybody defends Manga too strongly, you should know its origins in Nazi propaganda. Its design was strictly for the purposes of fooling the unwitting. Unfortunately, it has found some degree of success lately, which I think demonstrates the resurgence of a certain ideology in the world.
    At least Icarus tried!
