South Park is NOT Anime by SailorQuaoar South Park is NOT Anime by SailorQuaoar
My first attempt at a stamp, using the Photoshop template.

*rant ahead*

This is an issue that I've struggled with here on deviantART, as well as the internet in general.

The South Park fandom.

I love the show. Despite appearing crude offensive, and immature at times, South Park is witty, meta, and quite intelligent in the subject matter that it parodies.

From much of the fan art and fan fiction that I see and read online, you would never know that.

No, the fans of South Park spend their time drawing Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and the gang as generic (skinny) animu-styled "smexy bishies z0mg!!!11", and writing about teen-aged Stan and Kyle having "hawt buttsecks".

fav.me/d1y9fr8 This is about the only anime-styled South Park art I've seen that's done (somewhat) RIGHT, in staying to the show's chubby look (sometimes known in anime as "Puni Plush style") for most characters.

Jesus they even fucking cosplayed it browse.deviantart.com/?qh=žion=&global=1&q=south+park+cosplay#/d20v0qk
fav.me/d2e2ebq And this is the first time I've said this, but this chick isn't fat ENOUGH to be cosplaying Cartman. As if it really counts as a costume.

No. just no.

South Park is NOT an anime, the characters are NOT in high school, and the show is NOT about yaoi.

Get it through your heads.

If you want yaoi, go fucking watch Gravitation or something.
Don't ruin South Park.

Edit: Check out this sweet stamp made by ~kagefox that illustrates this topic perfectly:
STOP. WITH. THE. DESU.

Edit 2: Just so you know, I loved "Good Times With Weapons". (the anime episode).
I loved it because it was a parody, of shonen anime specifically.
All you goddamn fangirls are making it shojo and TAKING IT WAY TOO SERIOUSLY. FFFFFFffffff

Also check out this stamp: And yes, many anime styles are in fact bad.
Face structure? Chins? Noses? lol what are those? :iconderpfaceplz:
I should not have to tell 2 characters apart by the number of spikes in their hair.
Edit 3: For all the people saying "BUT ANIME MEANS CARTOON IN JAPAN!!!" you KNOW that's not what I mean.

In Japan the term may refer to any animation regardless of country of origin, but "anime" is used in the West to describe a distinctly Japanese style of aesthetics, physical animation quality, and writing.

Edit 4: 635 COMMENTS HOLY SHIT. WHY CAN'T YOU FAGS GO LOOK AT MY REAL ART.

who CARES how people draw!! who CARES how people cosplay! is it actually hurting you??
yes, south park isn't anime, but it's peoples' drawing styles. most people get past their crude anime art style phase anyways so why does it concern you? ( and i'm not saying all sp anime style fanart is crude, most of it is actually good, so... :/ )
i agree, the whole show isn't about yaoi. i ship some of the boys in there but i disagree with really sexual fanart of them (because they're eight for christ's sake).
and i'm sorry, but you have no right to complain about anime art styles with the sonic art style in your gallery.
no, your art isn't bad, but honestly.
come on.

I don't understand the cosplay thing, anyone of any race or sex can cosplay any character. That's like shaming a skinny black Man for cosplaying Rose Quartz

I agree with this. South Park isn't anime, it's really just a show that explains the world's problems in a comedic way. But at the same time, many fandom's tend to take from this and make it into their own little thing, ya know? Personally, I love all the fanart that the South Park fandom produces, along with the fan fictions that can make you cry. The cosplay that people put together is amazing, jesus, who cares if that girl is not heavy enough to cosplay Cartman? Just picture this: Would you be upset if someone told you you were to fat to cosplay a character that's ment to be skinny? I really don't see how the yaoi ships effect anything, either. If people want to ship characters, just let them do it.

I totally agree, but I don't care if they draw them as anime characters, I just don't want people to get into it and actually think making south park an anime is a genius idea, because it isn't. South park isn't supposed to be taken as seriously as anime. Plus comedy anime doesn't have the tastes and over extremes south park has. I love both south park and anime, but these two elements should never be mixed...

It's okay that you don't like it, but you don't have to tell everyone to stop just because YOU don't like it. That just makes you the Rob Reiner of the century.

"But there are lots of people who don't like it too!"
So? There are WAY more people who do! If it really pisses you off that much, go watch the real show and leave the fandom alone.

"But you're all being hypocrites because you push the stuff in our faces all the time!"
If it's really that bad, don't do it yourself.

"BUT ANIME SUUUUUCKS!!!"
That's your opinion. That's alright! Just don't try and force others to have the same opinion too.

You know,that you're bitching about something,what even Trey and Matt don't bitching about?Heck,they're even like it.Trey took once a photo with Girls cosplaying Stan and Kyle.If you judging people for cosplaying and making fanarts,then you're not only missing a point of fandom,you're missing a point of the WHOLE SHOW.A real SP fan don't judging others,because one of South Park morals is "If you like doing something or believe in god or other shit,it's okay.Just don't be a dick"
