The reason for many Anime characters have "big" eyes size are to make them look more cuter compared to other Anime characters who have normal eyes size, that is why almost all of the Anime characters who have it are female and childrent Anime characters.

For example look at the Anime Bleach, you will see how the female Anime characters on it have more bigger eyes compared to the male Anime characters. This is one of the technique used in Manga art, other than the "small nose" and "round face" technique.


This is a common knowledge among Mangaka and some Anime fans who learn Manga art,

Warmth of emotions. Most of what is expressed emotionally with characters in anime and manga is through the eyes. Small eyes are viewed as cold.

Anime characters usually have big eyes to express emotions easier. It was base off western art styles and became popular in Japan.

Thank you, Wikipedia.

Ironically, asians have the smallest eyes.

The ones who do have large eyes, are wearing contacts.

They must suck at cosplay.

So you are saying small sized Anime characters yes are harder to show emotion than the "big" one? Nah, what you said are baseless.

And if Anime characters "big" eye sizes base on western art styles than how come western cosplayers fail in cosplaying Anime characters?

Not to mention, western cartoon eye size are not the same shape and size of Anime characters eye size, we have more westerners trying to take credit from Anime since westerners can't make any Anime while love Anime so much more than their own cartoon.

No, I'm not implying that. I'm saying it seems easier to express emotions with large eyes.

Cosplaying does not have to do with anime eyes... Cosplaying is wearing costumes to resemble/represent characters. Large eyes have nothing to do with cosplaying.

There are plenty of western cartoons that have large eyes featured. Mickey Mouse, Bambi, Betty Boop are some examples.

I don't understand what you mean by westerns trying to take credit from Animes. Obviously westerners can not make anime because anime is Animation from Japan.

Wrong.
Trolls do not think, they act on primal impulses.
