Does it bother you when big Hollywood movies switch asian characters for white ones, (example: live action Ghost in the Shell) or stick a white character in an asian story where they don’t belong? (example: The Last Samurai)
caicaicat — Yes but then like at some point i realized that lot of Americans seem to think that the characters in anime ARE white. And that bothered me even more.
gaeatiamat — Well if you look at out historical cartoon images of Asians which are terribly racist, and how anime features can smooth out some of the details it’s not a surprise.
