All anime characters look like white people. I don't care if they Japanese names and live in Japan or not. I've never confused no damn Asian in my life for somebody white. It's not humanly possible. Asians have a distinct look. Jet black hair and slant eyes. If want to call that racist, thats ridiculous. But no damn anime character looks even remotely Japanese, let alone Asian with Asian features.

Example: My Hero Academia- All the heroes have Japanese names, born in Japan, but they all look white! You mean to tell me they're all Japanese/Asian? LOL!
yeah you have a vast misunderstanding of the largest continent in the world and the many different races and cultures that inhabit it.

Then why not draw characters that look like you? The only reason Anime is so popular worldwide is because the characters look white.
Mixed-roots japanese are very common these days, not to mention that most japanese folks have "white" skin tones. The only reason westerners don't see it as white is because other ehtno-characteristics that signal "asian" in our minds such as epicanthic eye folds or straight dark hair.

Further...uh....they're fu*kin cartoons dog.

you obviously don't know how anime works then loser. Japanese people do not see the characters they create as "white looking". that is something westerners come up with.

Good read.

Most Japanese folks have the same skin tones as white folks anyway.


Dudes in here really trying to act like Shonen anime is going to provide nuanced takes on culture and race in the global community

Japanese animation was inspired heavily by American animation in particular stuff by Matt Fleischer and Walt Disney. Osamu Tezuka considered the godfather of manga has stated that American animation is what he grew up with. Look at Betty Boop, Popeye, etc. Alot of those manga artists looked at those cartoons the same way we idolize DBZ, Gundam, Naruto etc. The influence just bled into their work. So when you say they all look white, yea they may but its most likely because they were influenced by a western style from the start.

Why do black people cape so hard for Asians? They're the biggest white worshippers on the planet. Outside of Afro-Samurai, they damn sure don't make no black characters in any of their anime shows. Yet blacks cape for them still as if anime shows are people of color cartoons. Lol. Attack on Titan, Berserk, Castlevania, all white European.
Foh, I donít cape for white people wtf you talking about?

Yall do realize anime characters arent supposed to be realistic likenesses to actual people right?

Can you really not think of any other reasons an animator might stylize a feature like big eyes apart from ďto make them look like white peopleĒ

No other race goes so hard for perserving their as much as possible as Asians do. Umbrellas, bleaching creams, limiting their time on the sun, when they come to the states they get typical names. Their friends and a*sociates are mostly too sh*t is ridiculous. I'm surprised this isn't brought up more in this climate...

You don't understand Asian culture. All that is because they view darker skin as poorer, which is bad. Dark skin means you're out in the sun, meaning you work in the fields and are poor. While a lot of Asian people DO want to be white, the "lighter skin = better" culture isn't rooted in that.

Fuccin idiots I swear. I get made fun of for being light skinned Asian. Truth is I burn like a lil bi*ch. Iím fully clothed in the spring/summer and walk around in tanks in fall/winter.

Plus I was born with a light sensitivity in my eyes so Iím always out of the sun or wearing sunglasses when they ainít no sun out.

better?

also



the godfather of anime took inspiration from disney, so that also played a factor.
Lol I do find it hilariously ironic that his main complaint is a blog used as a source... and you gave him another blog.

That being said. It's takes quite a suspension of logic to say "Even though they look white... they're not white. Even though they are." They can get away with that in Japan because they're not nearly as diverse and. I mean I get it. I'm half creole. My grandmother looked like a white woman and let you know how wrong you were when you called her one. I get it though. Anime charactersare blank slates. Weird people just happen to look like blank slates

But if I write a book in NY about an alien landing. And draw him to look racially ambiguous like Pete Davidson... that Alien is not an American because he was drawn in America by an American. And then expect them to cast Idris Elba as the lead just because I'm black. That's some different sh*t the Japanese do.

While not being drawn white intentionally... they are being drawn white. Where are the stats where everyone else looks at anime? I bet asians say they're asian. And literally everyone else says they're white. That's a deviation

Also... respectfully that the article about the father of Anime basing his stuff on Walt Disney.. actually helps his argument... because based on what we know about Walt Disney... he def drew them white
