does it really matter, though?

i mean at the end of the day there are several different races that are similar to Caucasian's so they might not even be intended to look Caucasian they may be aimed to look like one of these other races

but thats just my opinion so plz feel free to ignore my rambellings....

i don't know but i noticed that in most anime, the bad people usually are the ones that are more caucasian looking.. aka blue hair blonde eyes or other colors of facial features that aren't very "asian", while the heros have darker hair and eyes. sometimes i think that anime is brainwashing japanese kids to not like white people like how in code geass the brits took over japan and lelouche was just obsessed with destroying britannia aka the white people.. haha don't take my last sentence seriously

Sorta yes... but it is actually nice that they do sort of.

It is better to have characters with differernt faces and all rather than all having black hair, narrow eyes, etc that most japanese would be like (including myself). Remember, its Anime!

Well depending on the artist they will have the same character design and just use words to say where the person is from, and some will use features + words to id a person

but they don't look like real humans anyway

and I honestly never got the whole asian= yellow thing they have always looked white skinned to me *shrug*

Anime characters are so stylized that I think they tend to look like whatever someone interprets them to look like. They don't really look like anyone.

i'm just tired of seeing the black people portrayed in the stereo-typical racist sambo form. dark-skinned with big red lips and huge noses and the women usually have giant boobs and butts. hell, i wish i did have a big old bubble butt, instead of a pancake booty. and why do we have to always be nappey-headed thugs or hoes? i've only seen a couple of black characters who weren't portrayed like that, and then you were hard put to tell they were black.
BUT, why do all l the asians look white? I don't know. I know originally westerns were drawn with the big round eyes, was meant as an insult and that they were untrustworthy. but if they can have purple hair , why not white skin. i guess they want to see something different on tv. there population is pretty much one ethnic group. they don't have all ethnic groups living in their country. so i guess they want to see something different in the anime. it's not like they have an abundance of caucasian, african, or hispanic actors available in real life.
