Why are all anime characters white? Aren't they supposed to be japanese?
why aren't there more black people in anime?
>white people so full of themselves that they think cartoon characters made by slant eyed people are representing them
If a white person draws a stick figure, they'll see them as a white person.
If a yellow person draws a stick figure, they'll see them as a yellow person.
If a black person draws.... not hard to follow.
The black anime character is a rare but cool character, I don't know any bad black anime characters. And I would like to keep it that way.
You have to be delusional to think that most anime characters aren't white.
There's only a few shows, like Aku no Hana, that have characters that are actually drawn to have asian features.
He had very white skin, I live in Norway so I am used to white people, but ours is usually tinged with red, or pink.He had ashen gray, sort of cream-like skin. Pale, but not pasty, clear and brought out his strong facial features. I only saw him for a split second while getting off the bus, but this left a lasting impression on me.
I mean don't get me wrong, he was still a shortfag all the same, but with those kind of features I highly doubt that'll be much of an issue.
He looked kind of like pic related, but his skin was paler due to the season.
The whiteness of Euro-Aryans is a defect in itself. It's quite surprising that most people don't realize that whites came from India and Iran. Even hitler knew this, hence all the symbolism and terminology he lifted.
Tell me what white people are also capable of having naturally purple hair or pink eyes.
2D humans=/=3D humans.
This. Whitey only thinks they look white precisely because it's one's racial bias to do so.
Except they're not stick figures, they're characters that include White features as part of their detail. That's like saying that if a dog drew a cat, it's a dog because a dog drew it.
Stupid anon. Obviously the japs are the cat here. And yes I am pretty sure the cat would be drawing another cat, even if it did turn out looking like a dog, because cats are narcissist assholes.
It's not that they're drawn to be white, it's that they're drawn to have big eyes because that makes their faces more expressive (this is a common thing in western animation as well,) and they have crazy hair colors because everyone having the same hair color is boring and it's a way to make them stand out among background characters.
>they're characters that include White features as part of their detail.
So when the animators for the Simpsons drew all those yellow people that live in Springfield, does that not make Simpsons an accurate representation of white Americans, just because they "don't look like white people?"
You are retarded.
It's more of a novelty when one shows up if there aren't that many in total.
It's not just eyes and hair colour, but also facial structure and features as well. See pic related and >>121652788
>they're characters that include White features as part of their detail
Most of the time that isn't the case, main characters in anime have no recognizable facial features because it looks cuter and it's easier to animate. When they want a character to look like a particular race they give them some exaggerated features that generally look silly, which is why it's mostly used for minor characters.
For white people, they usually draw them whit a square jaw and a big nose.
Just let the Japanese make their characters look any damn way they want.
That's what I like about anime. It's not that the characters look white, it's that the Japanese don't cave into political correctness and don't care or think about if the character will offend some one.
I think Death Parade is a good example. I think based of the hair and eyes Nona is obviously white and Kuro is asian. Almost all the other charachters besides the otaku kid and the old man look white to me too
Fucking this. It's not just for animation too. The reason why I steer off from WRPGs lately is because I'm sick of SJWs bitching about gender equality and all that shit. I'm looking at you Dragon Age Inquisition. Good thing Neptunia changed all that by not giving a shit about portrayal of women, or race for that matter.
I don't even think there is a way to stick in a transgender character in a story without it feeling forced unless the whole story revolves around being transgender.
>For white people, they usually draw them whit a square jaw and a big nose.
Like this. Not exactly how you want your cute exchange students to look.
What the fuck are you talking about. Iranian race descended directly from Proto Indo-Iranians who came to the Iranian plateau and settled there and in Central Asia cane from the Caucaus from the Andros peoples.
Even in Xenophon's own accords of his interactions with the Persians in the mid-5th century describes them and their kin like the Medes, Bactarians, and so on as "pale skinned and fair in complexion" while he describes Greeks and even himself as being swarthy, "olive-skinned and sun-kissed".
There have always been light skinned Iranians, the term Aryan was simply used as a term to describe all Iranian tribes. Hitler was just trying to legitimize his eugenic beliefs and racial superiority by claiming kinship with the Iranians because even the previous Shah, Reza Khan, and his son, were fairly light-skinned and pro-German.
that's just white guilt bullshit. pale skin has been considered attractive for ages. if slopes didn't think white features were attractive they wouldn't be buying skin whitening cream and their celebrities wouldn't be getting eyelid surgery.
I found this the other day.
This makes sense.
They are much closer to real eyes than the average anime character. They are a little too close to each other though.
Agree or disagree, since we're going full /int/ here.
>plastic surgery gooks as beautiful
Could have at least picked japanese people.
>plastic surgery gooks as beautiful
Well that's the idealized form hence in the beautiful category.
>Could have at least picked japanese people.
Your average Jap ain't so pretty either. Ofc we can cherry pick all day.
asians are yellow!! or there are also blue eyed black asians too, they just cant be white like, master race white
For once the southern europeans, as a /lit/fag i have been reading so much good literature from there to be almost ridiculous.
And most greek\latin\etruscan genetic\cultural remnants are from there.
But in general pictures like those should be burned.
>Shiroe from Log Horizon has jap eyes
If you're talking about his real body, then yes. If you're talking about his game body, then no, he looks like a regular anime character like everyone else.
Sure all the tombs with the first documented artworks depicting angels and demon, the roman-etruscan churches with the first representation of hell, the statues and homes of rich etruscan all situated in italy are fake ?
And the latins fused with the etruscan, the etruscan where the first ones to build aqueducts for fuck's sake.
>mfw bottom asian naruto is a spot on reflection of my asian friend and she's as cute as a button
I asked her out once in highschool and got shot down, it was brought up later in a friendship killing drinking game and she jokingly implied I was a pedo for having a thing for a short petite asian girl.
I haven't wore a real smile since then and came here to live my neet life of degeneracy
Latins were a distinct racial/ethnic tribe from the Estrucans. Even other indigenous Italic peoples were separated and there wasn't much admixing, hence the Social War late in the Republic period prior to the transition to Principate/Imperial Rome.
Estrucans genetically and racially are a people isolate, even their language reflects this. Same with the Elamites who predate Iranians.
Not too mention Persian culture is not defined by Islam and their civilization predates it by a good 1700-2000 years.
>Lilly remains best girl
As it was in the beginning, is now, and forever shall be.
The problem with that is that modern variants of people are represented on that chart. If you wanna go back to ancient times, sure the first few probably aren't to far off but otherwise that, chart is horrible representation of todays society even if some are a hit and miss. Besides China and japan themselves did a cultural 180 from ancient to modern times. Fuck even chinese Americans hate the chinese.
To be fair Naruto is supposed to be white, I think. Kishi said in an interview once that he should be played by a blonde American if there was ever a live action in an interview.
Many times anime doesn't follow rules at all, or features like blonde hair and or blue eyes are added simply because it looks good on a character. I love seeing people argue over character designs intentions when the choices were made simply to make a good looking character, and when in the same shows you have people with impossible features
She's not asian is why.
Euro's think culture is old buildings and classical music, any other form of music, production, theater, cinema, technology, it's all irrelevant because muh history even though they eat up American culture like pigeons eat up bread.
Feels good to be a German, Irish, Russian mix.
My family was basically through eugenics created for the sole purpose of being able to handle huge amounts of alcohol.
Jews are placed wrong, there are different kinds of them that would need to be looked at separately.
>and they have crazy hair colors because everyone having the same hair color is boring and it's a way to make them stand out among background characters.
It's actually just lazy character design to save money. Far easier to give people unique hairstyles than expressive body types.
Because Japanese artists have always depicted their skin color as a basic, pale tone - a tannish white is the best, most universally accepted color of skin. They don't really even look white - white cartoon characters aren't typically that shade and 'white' skin is actually usually comparable to asian skin tones.
We get a lot more people who are really light skinned these days, and they're just particularly pale.
Let's not forget how they depict other races with small eyes and rough edges. But all the nip characters including the males have big eyes, light skin and ~UUGU personalities.
Are these chinks seriously this fucking delusional?
Aside from Koreans and Mongolians Asians don't really have smaller eyes than the rest of the world. It's just the different shape and lack of double eyelid that creates the illusion.
Hell, my eyes are smaller than the average non-surgery Korean and I'm Caucasian, but because I have double eyelid it's not as noticeable.
She didn't get objectively cuter. I just prefer black hair over blonde
>being so assblasted you resort to calling me a newfag
this pleases me!
oh gosh, you guys stop it.
all anime girls might be white but at least we still know who best girl is
Fuck you fag, you have shit taste. Horo a SHIT.
f-fuck off, you ruined my good mood. i hope youre happy ;_;
>implying anime characters aren't Philippine tarsiers
If wanted us to think animes were human, why did they give them such a big eye to body size ratio?
