While anime characters don't necessarily look caucasian you have a point that they don't look asian. Why this is so I have no idea but that's how it is.

Japanese probably get their daily dose of America by all the otaku wannabe's that visit them...

What do u mean? ...


Japanese people (asians overall) are generally stereotyped as shorter than most other countries. You said "Look up to Americans." As for the other part, I'm sure lots of Americans that come over for anime expos and such and try to act japanese would become annoying.

It depends on which anime you are talking about, for instance in Minami-ke, they don't seem to look all that Japanese escpecially since they have hair colours you would expect from whites.

Im not american if that's what u think. Im hispanic born in the US .. and Japanese love us American ppl even though they r homogeneoius... so I thought that was prolly a reason why they make anime character caucasian but who knows .. mabey Im wrong

According to Wikipedia:


A common approach is the large eyes style drawn on many anime and manga characters. Osamu Tezuka was inspired by the exaggerated features of American cartoon characters such as Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse, and Disney's Bambi. Tezuka found that large eyes style allowed his characters to show emotions distinctly. When Tezuka began drawing Ribbon no Kishi, the first manga specifically targeted at young girls, Tezuka further exaggerated the size of the characters' eyes. Indeed, through Ribbon no Kishi, Tezuka set a stylistic template that later shōjo artists tended to follow.
