We watched the Japanese version of Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children at work the other day and I was completely blown away by it. I thought the action sequences were some of the most exciting and poetic i have ever seen. I cannot wait until video games are of this calibur. I am very excited for the Englishe dubbed version that gets released on the 25th. Have you seen it yet? Did you like it as much as I did?

But it got me to thinking, is Advent Children ANIME? It has elements of Anime in it, but it isn't a cartoon... so what catergory do you think it falls into?

Well, to resolve this question we could of course make up a long list of qualities of what makes something anime as opposed to not anime, and then say something like, "If a piece of animated visual entertainment [already vague, of course, but I dare someone to do better] has all of these qualities or a sufficient amount, then it is anime." If we were [I]really[/I] bored that day we could further subdivide our anime category into smaller subgroups, e.g. shounen, yaoi &c., with their own qualities.

Of course, I'd be willing to bet that we couldn't get more than five minutes into such a project without hitting debates as to whether this or that quality is too wide (more things than just anime have it) or too narrow (not all of what we would call anime has it), which of these qualities are absolutely crucial and which aren't, and so on. Within hours you'd have wikipedia-esque edit wars, with the losers going home crying and taking all their toys with them.

Now, with this in mind I would propose that all the time used working up such a strict categorization would be better spent rewatching the rad-as-all-get-out fight scene between Tifa and that guy whose name I can't remember (but who had the victory theme on his cell, as I recall).

I think it may be classified as anime. It is complicated. It may not be hand drawn or look cell shaded, but I think with it having the style of anime, it should be classified as such.

"ANIME: A style of animation developed in Japan, characterized by stylized colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sex."

FF7 its like anime but its not. Its more of an animation then anything. I didn't really think of it as an anime because of its high graphics.
