japanese art is so good that there's an entire category of porn dedicated to their shitty scribbles. why is art so good anyways? you just scribble on paper and by chance something good comes out. no one gets good at art naturally, it's all by chance. it's like if i did the lottery all day and people commended my for sometimes hitting the 777. artists have no life tbh, why do they even exist?
Eh, I'll disagree with that one. Just like with anything, you can get good at something with enough practice and dedication. While yes, creativity is still a dice roll, but you can up your odds through rigorous practice. It all depends whether or not you wanna actually practice to become good.

Artists also exist because people like to look at pretty things, and people are willing to pay for artists to make those pretty things (of course, that "pretty" is subjective as all hell. Thank you rich assholes for fueling the market of modern "art" that shouldn't be showcased anywhere else than in a garbage can).

OP is wrong and also faggot, but there is a very slight element of truth. As anyone who's actually tried their hand at moonrunes can tell you, it's really, really hard to get the writing right. The amount of practice and precision it takes to write runes in a legible fashion means that any literate chink, nip, and I would assume practitioner of another arcane similarly language develops their writing and therefore drawing precision moreso than the average practioner of a say roman, or cyrillic character using language. They're able to effectively enscribe more difficult characters, which in a limited sense carries over into technical artistic ability. The tradition of calligraphy, which so far as I can tell doesn't really exist in any western culture further augments this proficiency.
This and Japs are just naturally exposed to pop culture shit produced natively, so they gravitate towards drawing typical anime and moeshit at first, which are just both horrible butcheries of human anatomy designed over the years to be able to animated cheaply, and with anime just becoming such an enormous cultural export it seems to have outpaced traditional Ukiyo-e art, for example.
It has nothing to do with wokeness.
Though I do wonder if art or graphic design’s considered a much more focused pursuit there. Regardless of the fact that art comes down to taste, I can’t deny I’ve seen strong artists with flexible portfolios on both sides of the Pacific. You just have to look harder, since the current landscape in both East and West markets leans toward the cheap shit being a lot more visible.

Most contemporary animu/mango art is little more than a(n autism) spectrum of endless variants of the exact same generic cootie-cutter snout-nosed "moe" art style that first sprang up in the early 2000s. You have to be legitimately huffing paint if you honestly think that is somehow intrinsically superior to any given "Western"* art style.

*which frankly just translates to "non-animango"

So, the virgin anime artist is OPL, right?

Why do goons here get so triggered when people talk positively about anime?
Because fuck weebs. The medium has a lot to offer but the amount of autism surrounding anime communities is staggering. Which is always a shame since mainstream anime has basically catered to the autism crowd and the quality has fucking dived into the ground for a long time now. Theres a couple of gem here and there but the amount of garbage anime is insane and is usually what non-weeb ends up seeing.

Doesnt help that a lot of mainstream stuff is borderline child porn with the only redeeming thing being thats its drawing so no children are harmed but its sitll fucking disgusting.

I wouldn't say that when the topic is literally named
"Why are Japanese so good while western artist are....bleh!"
Don't get me wrong, Null opening up that septic tank of a pandora's box of "liking anime means you are mentally ill" gives every contrarian their field day, but open superiority and waving around the biggest dick arrogantly in any manner makes a bigger target on your back. Besides, I'd doubt actual weeaboos could give me rational and sane explanations as to why and how anime got so big in the States in the first place and has its relevance in the American experience outside of Japan, like say, providing story and thematic content that no other media and form of entertainment couldn't yet imagine to touch and wasn't held down by censors endlessly come the 2000s.

If this was about comics or any other art form being superior, I'd hold the same eye rolling cynicism.

But that has nothing to do with the art itself, you are hating an art medium simply because of western consumers.

I explained why people hate the medium, not that I hate the medium.. Also for my own opinion of weebs heres a meme that illustrate my feelings on the subject. Artwise its an amazing medium though current trends is of low quality or experimental phase of using CGI to churn out more product to consoom.
