Do you hate how "moe" style has been over exploited? Do you hate generic anime style?

Fear no more, the Anti Moe Organization (AMO) is here.

The rule is simple:
Moe or generic anime is not allowed, and neither the authors.

What do we do?

Talk about authors and works that explore a different style than the generic anime. Authors like: Mitsuteru Yokoyama, Gō Nagai, Osamu Tezuka, Nobuyuki Fukumoto, Naoki Urasawa, Junji Ito, Inoue Takehiko, Kentarou Miura, and many others. Just don't author or works that are moe or generic anime/manga.

Recommend mangas, recommend authors, discuss them, etc.

PD: AMO in spanish is a conjugation of "love".

ive nothing against moe, but....

I LOVE THOSE GOOD STUFFS!!! :monkey_wow:
I'LL LOVE THEM EVEN IF I DIE!!!!!

Devilman was such an astonishing manga!
i couldn't predict what's going to happen to the story
(especially the Jin-men one was sad ;___; and Silene...)

Also, (although ive only seen a first few episodes),
Galaxy Express 999 had one of the best
storyline of all anime that ive seen.
A single episode with 30 minutes is well-developed enough
to make into a movie!! :monkey_muchtears:

I feel that Amon, the prequel they did for Devil Man, it was a incredible plus for the original story. It made way more sense.

Still I will never going to stop finding disturbing the characters on that manga, specially Miky (dunno if that was her name).

GITS Is generic, apparently.

But it doesn't have a HUMAN shaped head.

Clearly GITS was the ONLY example I provided.

If it makes you feel any better I can just replace it with:

Most animes have different settings and stories. Does that mean nothing is generic. Cuz I mean I can't name two anime with the same setting and same story.

Well I'd guess so. But I don't watch enough of them to know what's generic.

All this talk caused me to watch at least six episodes of Big-O in no particular order. I miss the good days.

:cat_sigh: oh you.

Also, I'm not sure I understand how GITS qualifies as generic in that line up :/

CypressDahlia
01-22-2012, 04:48 AM
Any style that falls under an umbrella term could be considered "generic". GITS could very well be considered generic because it's semi-realistic, which is a style pursued by many artists. So the whole idea of "generic" is kind of BS in the sense that if you can classify something, it's inevitably generic.

Ozzaharwood

People say GiTS is generic, but the way I see it it was one of the best animated anime around the time it was released. It had a generic plot-line for a whole chunk of the first season, but the animation was great.

So generic in terms of art style?
Makes sense.

Considering the GITS manga was both more humorous and sporadically teetered closer to being a porn, it's kinda weird how Stand Alone Complex really gunned for realsim... But yeah. They definately made it faux-dull looking intentionally. That's modern cyberpunk in a nutshell.

Anyway. The mecha genre has suffered the worst from this in the last few years... More like this, Japan, plz.

Yeah, it was Votoms, Mellowlink, and Generator Gawl. Wanted to see who got 'em. :p

Also, it's not a spike, it's a hoist so that the thing can be carried by a helicopter, lol. The mecha in Votoms are faceless, disspossable and basically rubbish, that's the entire point! No super prototypes, no deus ex machina. At one point the main character has to bail out of three differant 'scope dogs' in one episode. In mellowlink, he fights them with... an anti-tank gun. On foot.

In either case, badassery abounds. :3

Would mecha be classified as "moe"/"non-moe"? Mecha are pretty consistently unique.
