Really? Racism in anime and cosplay community now?


How do you feel about this?

How do you feel about racism being displayed in anime in general?


We used to have a user on here with names like proudasiankid and proudpureasian who had essentially a similar thesis and agenda. I guess She/He/It (Shit?) prefers a medium where he S/h/it can control the replies.



Blatant Nazi censorship.


did you see the one where s/h/it limits all replies to one of three choices (all of which support his thesis) and finishes with "All other replies will be DELETE."



Obvious troll is obvious. As in, Shitboy.

I wonder still if it's the same user. I'd hate to think there was of a clone of such a person out there.

It's as easy as creating another profile. We will endure this undue suffering together! IMPEACH S/h/it!

There are so many lapses in logic and faulty reasoning in those youtube videos, but (and I am white) dislike it when other white people, especially ones unfamiliar with Asian culture and anime claim that Japanese people are trying to be white by cosplaying and because of the existence of anime alone "derp derp, why do them Japtoon characters look white derp derp?"

I would find it ironic if the person who made those youtube videos realized this above tidbit about how whites see Asians and their love of anime, because that is racist too but completely flipside from Asians believing whites are trying to be Asian by doing the exact same thing.

One word for the "whiteness" of anime characters; statelessness.

What the bleep? That is so wrong. Anyone can dress up how they want and they do not need to be the ethnic group that created the characters being portrayed. Wow that kind of pisses me off. There are so many mixed people in the world today, it sucks that there are still so many ignorant racists. I'm American and Colombian and yes I live in Japan and I love Anime. I would love to cosplay my favorite character Tsunade and I think most of the characters actually look more western. I love Japan and the people are awesome, but I know there are a select few that are still stuck on one race, so whatever. I love all colors, races, religions and cultures, to me we are all the same.

Yeah, skin colour is definitely what bothers me.

The fat sailor moon is pretty funny though. Look at that magical wand, it looks like a massive pink vibrator.

but for real if i have ever wished terrible things on someone, it would be that uploader. I'm not one to get pissed, but if i ever did meet that person he'd be in a hospital 10 minutes later. Or on fire.

If any anime was racist, it would ruin the image of some modern anime...... I hope there's no racism.... at least not in the anime that I have watched. Racism is never a good thing, and if someone ever tells me it is, than their is something wrong with them...

yeah asians got the face/hair for cosplay but the white girl got the boobs/hair for it, or black latin brazilian got the ass for it...we know most not all mangas shows the emphasis on the body construction of characters, be real with me besides the face do u usually see asian women with bodies like manga girls character i know i don't...I look at it and say damn she got the tits of a white chick or the booty of a black chick...

the point is that its a combination...also these guys are not starting to introduce more ethnicity into this world...people can find a lot of things to cosplay a lot of white characters has been introduced to anime(mostly europeaan) you have blacks, indians portuguese name it it's there
