A little while ago I made a thread here about how American-based characters in anime were always seen as villains and that African Americans were always big-liped and mucsle bound. Someone responded by saying they like to see more Japanese people than African Americans because it's more realistic. Now there's 2 things wrong with that.

1. I wasn't saying anything about there not being enough African Americans in anime. That was nowhere near the point I was trying to make.

2. Even if that was what I was talking about, that person would sort of be wrong. The majority of anime characters ever created look extremely Caucasian. Not only that but recently I noticed that things like jobs, cities, and even clothes are very much American. It's like these anime are designed for Americans. That's why I like dubbed voices more, because they match the characters way better.

Well how many variations can you make of a chinese or japanese person when making anime.
It's pretty difficult, same hair,eye skin colour and it would be hard to distinguish chracters

The animes are usually about Japan and in them you can learn some of their culture and other things.
Like the always say ,,itadakimasu'' before they eat.

If you already made a thread, why did you feel the need to make another one? Just curious....


Maybe he is an attention whore?
