Why most anime shows set in Japan that have foreigners on it, most of these gaijins are portrayed as blond, blue-eyed americans/europeans when most foreigners in Japan are actually chinese and koreans (from which we almost never see)?

Why would you have another mook when you can have a kawaii American girl?

Because that would be boring. Imagine this.

Setting: a school in California
>welcome your new classmate, Pedro from Mexico.
>>
>chinese and koreans (from which we almost never see)

Because they're shit.

NIPPON BANZAI!

Because the elevens hate us. ;_;

They need to make them look like foreigners to stand out in the middle of the japanese characters, and the way most japanese find this is expanding the stereotypes the most they can (which is easier in european countries or the US because people there are definitely much more different than japanese).
You can't do that with chinese or koreans because they would look exactly like the japanese characters.
>>
Chinese and Koreans are considered subhuman niggers that noone wants to see.

There's also xenophobia, most japanese like western pop-culture because they look cool and stuff, so places like Europe, USA, Brazil and Australia seem exotic to them. If you're not western though, especially if you're from other asian countries, you're seen as inferior and not cool enough to be portrayed in most anime or manga.

Just goes to show how powerful Japanese blood is, if some of it can transform a sub-human into a divine being.
