Recently, we've had two questions on Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra which garnered close votes: Is avatar Korra bisexual? and How can fans be used to augment earthbending?. The first question has yet to receive the fifth vote necessary to close it. The second was closed, but later reopened. Looking at the edit history, the intersection of the group that voted to close and the group that voted to reopen is empty—so we had five users who thought the question was off-topic, and another five who thought it was on-topic. All ten of the users who voted on this are respected, high-rep users with lots of good contributions to the site, which suggests there is a pretty deep gulf over this issue in the community.
A previous meta post established that peripheral topics like Last Airbender, Korra, and RWBY are on-topic here, as well as allowing manhwa, manhua, original English language manga, and certain video games. This ruling was reinforced in another meta post on RWBY specifically, and in this duplicate of the first post. However, some users evidently were either not aware of these posts, or disagreed with them, and have been voting to close Last Airbender and Korra questions.
Do we still want to accept questions on these shows?
I do not want to start another argument about whether these two shows are anime or not. To me, they are not anime under the commonly understood definition in the non-Japanese fandom. To me, any work in which the vast majority of the creative direction comes from non-Japanese sources is not anime. However, Final Fantasy is also not anime, and we allow Final Fantasy questions, so not being anime is not an automatic disqualification. We can argue in circles about whether the shows qualify as anime under someone's definition, but it never goes anywhere. Let's try to focus on practical policy instead of arguing over definitions and gut feelings.
