Why is there such a lack of ethnic representation in anime?

Why is it always dominated with a bunch of blonde haired characters

Because black hair + brown eyes for every character gets pretty boring quick (in my opinion). That's why you don't have that many Japanese-looking anime characters either.

Anime has characters with all hair and skin colors. Plus all nationalities you can think of.
That is, ONLY anime.

Because of the giant dicking 2 nukes delivered by America has instilled a deep fear/love/hate with the west and their mighty phallic powers. So they manifest in weird subtle ways in their escapism.

Or maybe because nobody likes darkies.

Or maybe fuck you you filthy nigger and kill yourself.

Or maybe she's born with it.

The Japanese were not anti-Semitic (Falbaum 161). They were, however, influenced by anti-Semitic stereotypes of rich and powerful Jews, but they took a pragmatic approach. Instead of persecuting Jews, they hoped that Jews would contribute money to their “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Policy” and be influential in the United States (Kranzler 174). The Japanese believed the anti-Semitic propaganda that claimed that Jews influenced Roosevelt’s policies. By saving Jews, Japan hoped to create goodwill toward Japan in Washington. At the Five Ministers’ Conference on 6 December 1938 Japanese leaders declared: “Our diplomatic ties with Germany and Italy require that we avoid embracing the Jewish people.” They refused, however, to reject them “because of our declared policy of racial equality, and their rejection would therefore be contrary to our spirit. This is particularly true in light of our need for foreign capital and our desire not to alienate America.

Because anime is controlled by market forces, not ideologues.

The variety of hair and eye colours are used to create contrast between characters; while blonde hair/blue eyes is often used to designate Gaijin, it is not exclusive. Aesthetic combinations based on complementary colours happens to include yellow and blue.

Ethnicity doesn't particularly enter in to it - Kyouko from Yuru Yuri is Japanese, and just happens to use they yellow/blue combination; Gochiusa is set in generic "Europe" (they can't read Japanese) yet the characters use designs indistinguishable from those used by Japanese characters in other shows, eg: Rize looks similar to Aya from KinMoza.

Anime girls are not particularly distinguishable as any race, they just exploit the human perception of what is cute - babies have larger heads and hands, larger eyes, and smaller noses, human came to have an inherent positive feeling towards these features so that they could override the negative feelings a baby can create by requiring constant attention. Women also exploit some of these features as an evolutionary strategy and further with make up to enhance these proportions. The same features were bred for in domestic cats to make them aesthetically pleasing.

White skin is common, but lighter skin tones have always been valued in women in Japan - they would avoid the sun, and traditional make up included literally painting one's face completely white. It happens that Europeans and Asians can both identify with this skin tone, while brown and black people cannot. Dark skin is a niche interest in Japan, and in white people for that matter, so it only appears infrequently, and usually the same design choices are retained when employing it, so they won't look distinctively black.

Japan doesn't want to look at ethnic features of any race, only an ideal of beauty.

Pretty much all the SJW techniques are described on that page.

It's intentionally set up so that whites cannot portray blacks in anything correctly - in numbers , in abilities , in behaviour, in roles, in experiences, anything - and so that it's also wrong not to portray blacks at all.

That's what you think. You give yourself the illusion that you think for yourself. It's easy to be fooled when you think that buying that latte from the "local" barista or that "crafted" beer from your "local" brewery is you making an independent decision to change your "local" economy. The reality is that you are, and always will be, controlled by people smarter than yourself. Those "local" businesses are really just pawns of the bigger economy driven by an even bigger government. They think they are making the difference in the world right before they go bankrupt. Just like you did before your wallet became empty and asked, "what can big government do for me? I am broke and don't have money for food and rent!" You are a pawn, fodder for the royals who actually own you.

The only thing that isn't really common is black haired, black eyed gooks.

Why?

because generally the creative types that get into manga are intuitively aware of hos stifling and shitty their society is, and how everyone looks the same.

So they give people glowing eyes, pastel hair, and weird clothes specifically because they're so used to absolute conformity they don't really know how to express a character tastefully.

That's just in general of course.

>>139797249

Japan just likes adding weird colored hair to show difference personality.

Japan put forward racial equality treaty in the early days of league of nations. This was rejected by the british, america, austrailia, etc. They left the league of nations because of this dispute.

This policy of "racial equality" is completely aligned with what Japan believed. The racial stereotypes and racial hatred were strong in America. This questions the narrative of Japanese being racial war mongers.

because the blonde hair blue eyed foreigner image is appropraitely opposite the black haired brown eyed asian and makes them more recognizably foreign along with some variation of a big nose. Japan doesn't have enough of a black population to give a shit about them unless they're actually a key element of the setting or plot, otherwise most japanese can go their whole life without seeing a black person. it's like asking why we don't have more adequate inuit representation in the US. It's not innate racism, it's just that there's no one to give a shit in either direction; it's just not an issue.

yes, but it's not the reason Anime is still 99% with only Asian/White Characters. the reason is because Anime is not under control of kikes, such as JAPAN. yes JAPAN is forced by USA jews to do different stupid shit, but still JAPAN is FREE in comparison with WHITE COUNTRIES! May be THEIR GODS ARE HELPING THEM? Whites betray their Gods. :/
