Because black people that aren't American soldiers have historically been uncommon in Japan.

This plus there are hardly any black otaku. So there's no need to pander to them.

Truth, dubs prove it. Not that there was any doubt anyway.

Black otaku are as rare as non-whale female otaku.

Because niggers are dumb, minus Tyrone.

Among the Japanese, that is. American blacks are huge weebs.

You can argue for equality, but only works if the financial statistics bear it out.

FIRST, anime is marketed towards a japanese audience. It is not marketed towards you, so your logic is not being used in the design of the show. Second, an anime show has 24 minutes in which to do its thing. That gives x minutes per character. Each character is an opportunity to sell character goods, licenses, and supports the overall show in its sale of merchandise and overarching licenses as well as video sales, promotions, and broadcast time royalties. With that in mind, why would the production committee waste value minutes doing what you wanted using something that has low sales value to their japanese audience?

Because less than 1% of Japan's population is black.

>As you can see, the Japanese are racial-ideology-wise far from perfect. But for someone to come in with no knowledge of this long and complicated history and insist that having more Hispanic/Black/POC(a meaningless term in a country full of POC) characters in anime, it’s saying that American racial ideas and politics are more important. Sure, I love when anime has diversity of any kind. But if you think an anime with a “POC” is more progressive and ignore something like Samurai Champloo—which has both a Ryukyu island native main character and several episodes devoted to the Ainu—then I’m sorry, but you’re being culturally ignorant and contributing to cultural imperialism. That yet again, the gaijin should be the star. And the West has a very, very long history of imposing its own sense of morality on everyone else. I can find way more foreigners of any color portrayed in anime than any Ainu, let me tell ya. I have no right to tell a foreign industry to stop making media that reflects them and their racial identity and instead make stuff that looks like an American sitcom.

The way the Japanese depict blacks in anime is beyond hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtzlKJ1dObU

All of the moeshit fans I know are white with a few Asians sprinkled about. All of my black friends who are into anime typically dig mecha and shonen like ttgl and hxh.

Why should there be more?

It's fine at it is.

>>119862803
I like how this is itself saying American racial ideas and politics are more important by labeling Japanese as "POC" while complaining about it.

Not really, its just showing the perspective of the speaker.
>>
>>119863750
Which is literally what he's complaining about, westerners forcing their perspective on other countries.
>>
>>119857567
Not financially viable to present other races to an audience that largely doesn't recognize them as being human.
>>
>>119863889
But he's not forcing any perspective by showing his own with a simple term which he even acknowledges as kind of unnecessary in a homogenous non white society.

Because anime does it right. When they add a gay or ethnic character it's not for the purpose of being PC and filling a diversity quota like in the west. They add them where it feels right and it provides something interesting to the plot.
