No one said they have to be asian....

Seems like too many people on this forum are really good at reading a question and then turning that question into what they want it to be, rather than reading what is actually written.

It's all aesthetics based on what the artist feels would suit the character best. I think you're trying to read too much into it by using racial stereotypes to categorize 2D drawings...


Based on what youre saying the artist uses their own set of racial stereotypes to create what they think a character of a certain ethnicity should look like. Why cant I be curious as to why they make some characters look more Japanese than another and then call them both Japanese?

Im asking from a design standpoint, not a racial standpoint. My question is not why do they make anime characters look white and others asian. My question is why do they make some characters with asian features and then have other characters that appear featureless or have unrealistic features then call them both Japanese. I think youre not reading into my initial post enough.

They love everything West. Much like Americans do for other countries foods and Movie/TV, Japan does for entertainment and culture. They take it and hybridize it.

Osamu Tezuka is considered the "father of manga." He is the one who invented the "large eyes" style of manga back in the 1940's/50's, he was inspired by western comics and animations. This is where the somewhat western looking faces come from. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osamu_Tezuka#Works

Some call it statelessness, where characters aren't exactly portrayed as being of any exact race, though Caucasian features are often used due to being considered attractive.

Plenty of people answered your question, whether you read them or just skip over them and post tits is your problem.

I don't know, maybe western mythology, names, language, round eyes, yellow and red hair... things you don't tend to see naturally in Japan, in so many anime?

It's a documented fact, I said, btw, they're proud of the fact they do this. It's inherently Japan. They'll talk openly and freely about it.

Yeah. Yeah. The great Tezuka. The large eyes really became trademark of manga.
And as with everything in life, you desire what you not have, what you not are and yearn for the impossible to happen. Thats fiction
