    yes, the leader of the baddies is usually a thin faced, rather progressive looking individual with a manic, megalomaniacal appearance. his subordinates are usually portrayed in the manner i described.

    also in many cases, the bad guy is really a good guy, but forced on the "wrong side" and do morally reproachable acts due to circumstance, not by choice. usually as the storyline progresses, these guys do the honorable thing in the end, either joining the "right side" or dying through a selfless action. or sometimes the ruler is a twisted, megalomaniac character, but some of his generals are "good", but they are bound by honor and duty to carry out their ruler's decisions. not different from many of hitler's generals. indeed many japanese storylines are drawn not just from mythology but historical events and people.

    Yeah well you have to realize Japan is a living culture-clash...they still retain their ancient traditions but American products and attitudes have flooded into that nation. Apparently, not only with Coca-Cola in vending machines over there, but also the ideals that our white culture has a great history, and we look the best. In my eyes, they are our biggest fans.

    But still I only got one response from someone on here about "How do you feel about all these caucasian-looking characters in Japanese Anime and Video Games, Comic Books, and what not" and the only person to respond was Janus, and evidently he is a huge Anime fan. And is very defensive about Japanese Animation.

    Oh, I guess I could answer the question too.

    I read (and draw) manga (basically it is the comicbook form of "anime"). I don't find that the characters look like any race at all... sure they may have blonde hair or blue eyes, but they're animated characters. To assign them a race so seriously is ridiculous.

    Look at the attachment. (sorry for the poor quality, I just haven't gotten my tablet yet and I had to draw them with the mouse)...

    Do they look like any "race" to you other than animated characters?

    Haha, I think you should get a book on How-To-Draw-Anime...so far those drawings look like they could've been made by a very novice young artist. You need a lot of practice. I've been an artist my whole life. But i'm not into drawing that much anymore.

    Well just to be fair, heres my drawing of a wanna-be Anime face. (And I rarely try to draw Anime, and yes I did this computer too)


    So your saying blonde haired blue eyed people drawn by Japanese people...they have no race? Obviously they are drawing Aryans! And its not like this is the ONLY style of faces they draw. In cartoons like Inuyasha on Adult Swim I have occasionally seen asiatic eyes on some of the characters...but its very rarely shown.

    If you want to see what Asians should be depicted as when drawn as cartoon characters maybe take a look at Family Guy. That show can get pretty racial sometimes and I find it hilarious. Theres a character on that show who plays an "Asian correspondant (sp?)" to the Family Guy's tv news that they watch, they draw her with very slanted eyes and make fun of her ethnic accent. Thats what Japanese people should look like if they want to draw people from Japan. They shouldn't be drawing very white-looking characters then say they are from Japan. Or you know what, if they want to do it, stop making the Aryan characters Japanese, maybe make a show about Germanic warriors. That would be respectable.

    Family Guy's asian reporter


    Its simple. Blonde hair is a trait excluse to the white race. So is red hair. And blue eyes. I'm aware that they also draw white hair, and maybe sometimes other non-white colored eyes. I know that if I was Japanese, and truely had pride in my oriental race, I would draw the characters (in japanese settings) the way they look in real life.

    Listen i'm not here to spew hatred towards the Japanese. I think the Japanese are cool. But they are using our likenesses on their cartoons. And to those who are sympathetic towards Anime cartoons from Japan, will say "its just a style of drawing" But its deeper than that. This is something that I notice. I was surprised to see how many Anime fans we have on this thread. How would you feel if you saw a caucasian-looking Anime character in Japanese Henati Animation Porn being sexually violated by some tentacle monster. What kind of image is that portraying? A negative one towards our race. And a fetish for our race on their part. I hope you can understand what i'm getting at.

    Haha I think that was a ridiculous post...obviously one of their ancestors had some caucasian ancestry. A man with skin that dark can't produce blue eyes without having some white ancestry in his background. And that African negroes' blonde hair...come on do you really think thats real? She probably died her hair. I don't know why you people are trying to shoot me down with this. I guess you guys don't care as much that a foreign race keeps obesssively drawing us whites in their cartoons. Depicting the characters in any light as they please.

    All you have to do is look at the negroe woman's roots on her hair to tell it was dyed blonde. Why are you shooting yourself in the foot?

    Spontaneous depigmentation of skin, hair, or eyes exists in almost all populations, and I don't know of genetic evidence to ascribe such phenomena exclusively to Europoid admixture. If you claim so, please present some.

    The child is no African Negro but an Australoid, i.e. an entirely different race, and blond hair is very common among them.

    I'm not shooting you down. I only refute your wrong claim that blue eyes and red and blond hair are exclusively limited to Europoids.

    I believe you are shooting me down. You are posting examples of very rare cases where blonde hair or blue eyes might sprout up in non whites. Generally speaking , blonde hair and blue eyes is a European trait. I doubt the Japanese are modeling their 'aryan-looking' anime characters after those very rare cases of non whites having blonde hair. They are modeling their characters after Europeans, period.

    Generally speaking, this is true with the possible exception of blondness among aborigines which might in relative numbers be as common among them as red hair among Europoids or even occur more frequently.

    However, you stated: "Its simple. Blonde hair is a trait excluse to the white race. So is red hair. And blue eyes."

    I pointed out that reality is not that simple and that such traits are not exclusive to the "white race" -- not more, not less. It just seemed important to me to make this point.

    I doubt the Japanese are modeling their 'aryan-looking' anime characters after those very rare cases of non whites having blonde hair. They are modeling their characters after Europeans, period.
    That's a strawman. I didn't comment on your thesis about anime at all, and you might well be right about it. It was also not my intention to hijack your thread and to deviate from the main topic. I only commented on an anthropological statement you had included and which I considered not entirely correct in its given form. Maybe it was just an unfortunate formulation. So let's return to the topic in question.
