It is truly baffling to me that people on here complain about anime being all white.
You know. Japanese anime characters.
Talk about assuming the “default human being” is white.
Equally amusing: assuming all anime characters are Japanese.
Because anime’s from Japan.
When characters are stated to be white Europeans.
Putting words in my mouth, much?
Unless named or stated otherwise, they tend to be Japanese. I am talking about the people who bitch about Shinji Ikari being white. The Sailor Moon cast being white, etc. etc. etc.
I am not talking about shows such as Attack on Titan, Bacanno!, Black Lagoon, etc. Shows not set in non-Japanese/Asian countries.
You can generally tell pretty quickly if the character in question is not Japanese/Asian. Generally. Not in all cases.
But in those shows that are based in Japan/alternate worlds and features a largely Japanese cast (alternate worlds such as those in Naruto, Shin Sekai Yori, etc), it is very apparent in the art style and voice acting that a character is European-esque. Just look at how foreigners were drawn in Sailor Moon. More recently, how a foreigner was drawn and voiced in Strange+ and in Durarara (and that foreigner was *gasp* a black Russian).
So the notion that SJWs want to push about anime being “all white” is utterly ridiculous. Japan is a largely homogenous society, so it should be pretty damn obvious that they would assume the characters in their shows to be Japanese unless otherwise stated.
Know what else is even stranger in Japanese society? Black people. Gaijin Smash (not sure if that blog is still around?) talked about how strange people found him all the time. It was apparent in DRRR!! if we are talking about anime.
Mixed ancestry peoples are also treated completely differently—even other Asians. Japan is still a largely xenophobic country, Western influence or not.
You cannot apply Western standards to a completely different culture.
That is the point I am trying to make here.
You assumed I was talking about you.
I was not.
But this too is amusing.
