The logical fallacy here is the belief that Cartoon characters are somehow like real life people. They are not.

So the real takeaway here is.

1. Anime is not Reality, thus Anime Girls are not like Real Life Girls.
2. Japan is not America, thus Japanese Girls are not the same as American Girls.

No matter what country you go to there are shy girls. But Japan and America are completely different socially and culturally. So girls are going to behave differently. Also, whether in Japan or the US people will behave differently based on where you are in any event.

Bottom line is that Anime has as much to do with how Real Girls are in Japan as Jersey Shore has in common with Real Girls in the US.

With you saying "why do anime girls look like american girls" we all know what your implications are.


ill tell you what my mommy told me "never assume anything."
there are some anime girls look like latina girls i know. i have friends in every race.


Lmao, that is possibly the stupidest reference I've come across on here. What are you, five? And then on top of that you have to type in the golden reply "I have friends in every race"...

Good lord.



And yes, while Japanese, or even Asian people do tend to be more reserved and perhaps more "shy", that does not mean every single one is.



sorry wrong choice of words

I agree that you really can't answer this because anime isn't what happens in really life. If it was, then we would just watch what happens in real life, and not even bother making it up for t.v.

All Japanese women are shy, and American women can't be? Anime women reflect RL American women? Anime accurately represents reality?

she explained to me that certain appearances of female anime characters were making fun of American girls and how they looked.


I want to imagine that this is also due to some influence from the western comic book scene. Not just due to absurd proportions or eyes but due to similar anatomical fallacies such as floating boobs, lack of organs, impossible spinal contortions, improbable posing, gravity defying outfits, and the endless amount of boob & butt service there-in.

I'm not say that occasionally there happens to be some that act like someone on an anime, but that really wasn't what you were asking when you wrote this post. From what I understood based on how it was worded (I may be wrong here):

If: Japanese girls are like anime girls
Then: Japanese girls would be as shy as anime girls

In that case, the answer is yes, because you are assuming that Japanese girls are like anime girls. The second cases is:

If: Japanese girls are shy like anime girls
Then: why are American girls not as shy as Japanese girls

Now, according to you two statements, we should be able to reason that the true question you are asking is:

Why are American girls not as shy as anime girls?

This is a flawed and difficult question to answer because:
1. America is somewhat of a melting pot of ethic and racial people, all with different value, morals, and ways of life, somewhat dependant on where you live.
2. These difference make it nearly impossible to stereotype American girls accurately enough to compare them to anime (not that you should stereotype)
3. Not all anime characters are the same, some can be shy, some very boisterous and friendly.
Because of this, you question is much to broad to answer accurately.

Also, a reason you may find people saying there friends act like someone in an anime is because they probably do. Often I notice that the actions and feelings are not newly made by the writers, but rather "stolen" from people around them. These means they will take example from life to show a character, and sometime slightly exaggerate them. However, what makes anime unique is the combination of these personalities, how situations stress them to do things, and conflicts that happen at a whim. normal life can sometimes be like this, but often, we find that the uninteresting parts of life are cut out of anime, and everything is constantly going, or a period of days or even months may past between episodes.

I hope this clarifies my short earlier post.

CR had an avatar/instant chat/fighting game, but it was shut down May 31, 2012.

Your thread description isn't worded well, if that's what you wanted to know. Of course, you undoubtedly know that by now.
