Hell yeah it's art! It's pretty much in everything I draw.
And _Moon_Child_: YES it is too art, because anime isn't specific, everyone has their own style in everything, as MomyCake said. Open up a few mangas and look at it before judging us anime artists and see if you still think you belong on your high horse. Because if you haven't noticed, there are a lot of things like that. Realism, anime, cartoon it doesn't matter!
