Sorry to debate this but I wonder; what is anime then?
I clearly see it as anime and so does the artist herself.
From artists homepage: “This is the home of GalaxyPink, artist and creator of original animated 3D hentai games for windows PC. My games feature animated scenes and CGs, futanari (dickgirls), catgirls, elves, breast sex, a variety of sexual positions, sexy sound effects and voice, and high quality animation with high resolution 3D graphics.”
Sure I can agree that it may seem a bit borderline, but just how much anime does it have to be to be considered enough? I’m guessing that quite a lot of pictures on gelbooru these days are being pulled because of this. I am not saying that you should make an exception just for me. Just that when in doubt rather free then condemn.
But you decide of course.

Anime would be art or animation that comes from Japan. Art that looks like anime but comes from other nations is not anime because it is not of Japanese origin, even if it has similar themes or styles that are common in anime.

To put it simply, it is not anime because it does not come from Japan.

EDIT: Furthermore, anime is not an art style. Anime can have many looks. For example: Queen's Blade, Crayon Shin-chan, Record of Lodoss War, and Mononoke (not Princess Mononoke, the other one) all have vastly different art styles, but they are all anime because they are from Japan. Furthermore, Avatar the Last Airbender, Teen Titans, and Ben 10 (as examples) are not anime, despite having anime qualities, because they are not from Japan. Anime is anime because it comes from Japan, not because it looks a certain way.

I hope that this helps clear up some of the confusion.

What if it's non-Japanese fanart of a Japanese anime?

I believe those non-Japanese series can be described as animesque.

That would be perfectly acceptable.

That is not good enough. They may look anime-ish, but they are definitely not anime.

I think this was an error
Posted on: 08/24/10 10:12PM

gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=873877

the reason says "doujin" but it really looks like a stand alone picture (or a collection of pictures) a doujin has panels and speech bubbles and stuff like that.

but even if it comes from a doujin it is a image that is not inside a story with panels and such, like an image that relates to the story but is not in the doujin itself (like maybe at the end of the "magasine" for not having a better word). so i think this should be restored because it did not deserve to be removed.

Anything from a doujin, the cover, title page, chapter title page, etc, is not allowed.

OK, a question. I posted some pictures, now they're gone. When I try to repost them, it says "The image already exists, you can find it here" and I follow a link which just takes me back to the front page. Is there anything that can be done about that?
