If you want to see an anime where the characters really look Japanese, look at "Flowers of Evil" I read where the characters were modeled after real people.

If a Japanese person had to choose, they'd choose that anime characters look Japanese but even Japanese people realize how different anime characters look. It's not quite meme level but when an anime characters claims to be Japanese, Japanese people will often respond with "Japanese people can have pink/blonde hair?!"

Also, if you're grading skin tones on a scale of 0 (lightest) to 100 (darkest), to someone living in Japan (or China or Korea or almost anywhere else in that region), a drawing of a character with anywhere from 0-60, sometimes darker, will automatically read as their ethnicity, because that's what they're most exposed to. To most westerners, 0-30 will look white, 60-100 will look black, and anywhere in the middle will look Latino or half-black-half-white, unless you put an Asian or Middle-Eastern name, setting, etc. on them.

Ah...No. It's up to the anime artist as to what the character nationality is suppose to be. The story may take place in Japan but the character maybe from another country.


Don't over complicate a simple answer people? You're not in fooking College anymore!

If they are, the animators are doing a terrible job.
