Hello I saw people on /pol/ talking about anime characters being drawn as white people, and I was wondering if this is true?
Are anime characters white?
no, they're fucking drawings, they don't have a race
but, are they based on white features and skeletal structure?
Holy fuck, it doesn't take this much science to fucking notice that they don't look like Asians at all.
No, they're Japanese obviously.
Why would you even listen to anything /pol/ has to say ever?
Why the fuck would you ever listen to /pol/ about anything?
>Based on white features and skeletal structure
No mangaka that I know of has studied anatomy, and a good deal of them have never seen a white man at all. You really shouldn't believe /pol/ they rarely know more than what the truthspirasists tell them.
What's wrong with the aspect ratio on your pictures?
>Listening to /pol/
Why don't you go back to that cesspool
/pol/acks struggle with the idea that there could be anything in the universe that doesn't center around white people
I don't understand the point of using characters that aren't even from fictional Asia to make these. Sakura's hair is fucking pink.
Anime characters aren't supposed to look like real people. If they did, they'd look bad and be harder to tell apart.
>thousands of years as a 99.9% homogenous society.
>thinking their stylized representations of human figures are Caucasian
they are really just cartoons OP, however if you use the McCloud triangle, and ask a mangaka to realistically draw one of their characters. You would see that they are interpreting asians or eurasians.
>and a good deal of them have never seen a white man at all
/pol/ is usually right about everything that doesn' thave anything to do with conspiracies
remember that time /pol/ honestly thought the zimmerman trial would result in mass riots?
No, they just present and cherrypick facts and news in a way that seem to confirm what they already believe.
If you draw a stick man and show it to a white person they'd assume the stick man was white. Show it to a Japanese person, they'd assume it's Japanese.
why are you listening to /pol/ OP?
I forgot to say. You will usually an art style like Beck/Vagabond/I''s
And I thought I'd add if there is any further confusion. Many art instruction books feature predominately caucasians in the diagrams. But I am aware that the Japanese have their own instructional material.
Reminder that time when /pol/ thought Ron Paul would have a legitimate shot at the presidency?
That picture is cherrypicking so hard it's physically painful
The Japanese are not know for being inclusionist, in fact a lot of the more nationalistic nips will go well out of their way to not have to interact with foreigners. A number of mangaka are relatively isolated in their communities as well as being xenophobic, and have as little interaction with foreigners as possible.
I've never contemplated the race of a stick man before, but these are hardly similar to stick figures, since they have far more detail.
This is a thing, actually. It's called neoteny.
Do you understand, Garfags? Evolution itself favors moe.
Japan has been obsessed with white people for a long time, so its no surprise how that's the trend in anime/manga, also, its just fantasy, so race is no big deal as long as the reader get what it wants
So do they think Japan invented basketball?
This. How many people here see lego men as white despite their yellow skin?
Common /pol/ delusion thinking that everyone on Earth is obsessed with white people.
Japanese people don't know anything about white people and don't give a fuck, so I'd find it really hard to believe that they secretly fantasize about being white.
Does /pol/ think the Simpsons are filthy asian half-breeds too?
Lego is its own race,
Read Monster or Chihayafuru. Both have examples of character designs for foreigners seen from japanese people pov.
Big noses, chins. They accentuate the features they're not used too. And it's the same with BD/Comic artist, see asian character with slanted eyes.
Simply put, let's say you're caucasian, see this smiley ? :) Well since you're caucasian yourself you'll automaticaly assume it's a caucasian smiley even though you may not realize it. It's the same with anime characters design, most are quite stylized so everyone automatically superpose these stylistic features with the ones they're most used too, namely the ones you wear yourself.
someone post this revelation to /pol/ and see how they respond
>inb4 its all a jewish conspiracy for get japs to NTR all the whites
Is the intended race of anime characters distinguish-able because of their facial features or are they too ‘international’to tell? This study addressed this question empirically bycomparing the intended racial categories of static frontalportraits of 341 anime characters randomly selected from animeproduced between 1958 and 2005 with the perceptions of 1,046raters. Results showed that, although the race of more than halfof the anime characters was originally designed to be Asian andonly a small fraction were intended to be Caucasian, many wereperceived as Caucasian by the largely Caucasian raters.Response patterns also indicated ‘Own Race Projection (ORP)’,i.e. perceivers frequently perceived anime characters to be oftheir own racial group.
And for us to make the stickman look Japanese we would draw slanty eyes, bowlcut, and buckteeth. For them to make the stickman look white they would give them blonde curly hair and a big nose.
Lego are all danes or Star Wars or Halo characters.
pic related is what nips think we look like
Remember that time /pol/ correctly predicted the verdict of the Zimmerman trial?
There is a lot of sameface stuff that bears so little resemblance that when a white character appears the cast have to either state the fact that their white or they have to have bleach blond hair and sky blue eyes just to make the fact known to the audience. Generally it varies, but it's mostly the moeshit that tends to bear the least resemblance.
>whites think characters look white
confirming what >>102103866 said
who would have though?
I never got this image
The lines are just clearly ignoring the alien's facial structure
I can't believe somebody actually funded this
Its honestly more slavic and generally feminine, i think race doesnt play a part.
If anything it is based of a newborn and puppies.
keep pol on pol.
>Simpsons are filthy asian half-breeds too
>zimmerman trial would result in mass riots
but mass riots happened, not at the level /pol/ expected but it happened anway.
anime characters look more asian if they are supposed to be ugly.
I can't believe people actually fund harem-shit either.
>even nips know that the nose knows
That's a retarded argument and it's pathetic that you think it's a good enough argument to bother repeating. Lego people with no skull features are different from Anime characters who have skull features that resemble whites.
What? You can't believe there are actual anime specialists out there?
>Japanese people don't know anything about white people and don't give a fuck
Then why are my chinese cartoons full of engrish?
Why do people wear clothes with Japanese text on it they can't read?
So, blacks thought they were based on black people? Are you fucking retarded?
2 years ago, /a/ accepted that anime characters were white.
Now /a/ thinks they are Asian?
SRS hit this place hard.
why do people read symbols?
They just made the chin a little wider
Listen /pol/ack, you're an idiot to even believe that some cherry-picked pictures indicate that anime characters somehow resemble white people. The arrogance and egotism of you people is absurd, have you considered for one minute that the Japs don't give a shit about any of us?
Anime characters resemble japanese models.
Actually, genius they did studies about dolls and every race thinks that the caucasian doll is the prettiest and the shitskin one is the ugliest.
>/a/ is one person
Whites and Asians are drawn with the same skin tone in cartoons, blacks are not.
No they don't, look at the pic in the OP. Don't even post again before even looking at the OP.
All anime skull structures are white.
Why does /pol/ pretend to have citations for anything they want to talk about?
Why not spend that time finding actual citations?
If you show them brown girls
>People code faces that deviate from the norm of their ethnic group through the absence or presence of distinctive ethnic features.
no slanted squint eyes or brown skin? must be a fellow caucasian!
no blonde hair with blue eyes and giant nose or brown skin? must be a fellow asian!
brown skin? must be a homie
>being a liberal
Can you abandon this entire board, and not just the thread?
How is "/pol/ack" supposed to be an insult? You're not on SRS, landwhale.
>caucasian doll is the prettiest and the shitskin one is the ugliest
I like how your inner /pol/tard stormfag tendencies get more and more pronounced the more buttmad you get.
>the pic in the OP doesn't exist
Cognitive dissonance at it's finest. Kill yourself.
See also Indian Marco and Indian Bert on tumblr.
>why do people watch shows in a different language that they can't even understand
See, this is why nobody listens to /pol/. They're retarded. These are fucking cartoon characters, they don't look like anything in real life, yet some autist has dedicated all this time and serious consideration to analysing the anatomical features of noseless characters with eyes the size of tennis balls. What the fuck.
Good to see /pol/'s at its usual standard of shitting up other boards.
This is why everybody hates it and laughs at you guys.
That was my first post.
I like how your inner SRS libtard tendencies become your only source of arguments the more buttmad you get.
Do you understand what cherry picking is?
What race is she?
Not him, but the only people who actually hate /pol/ are SJWs. I never understood why you redditor faggots think you are welcome here.
Whoa there, if you don't agree with what our friend from /pol/ says, you're clearly a libshit kike shill SRS shitskin nigger out to defame the glory of Hitler.
You mean /a/ has always accepted that it's a flamebait topic intended to rile up weeaboos and stormfags who feel the need to justify their addiction to cartoons made by an inferior race, that pushes actual threads about anime off the board
This actually happened
>moving the goalposts
It's cute that you tried to argue outside of your SRS hugbox, but you're crashing and burning out here. You tried, but you failed.
>all these retards ITT that think "caucasian" is a blanket term for "white people"
I'm surprised no one has posted Aku no Potato yet.
Go back to /v/, faggot.
>the only people who actually hate /pol/ are SJWs
Bull. Fucking. Shit. Typical /pol/ tactic of tarring everyone with the same brush for taking a contrary view. Let me guess, this makes me a "JIDF" "good goy"
Isn't she Thai?
>inner SRS libtard tendencies
>the only people who actually hate /pol/ are SJWs
>an inferior race
ITT: op's argument gets blown da fuck out and he responds with generic /pol/tard insults
I'll ask again, do you understand what cherry picking is?
Reddit hit you guys hard, huh? This is basically /co/ 2.0 at this point. Another board lost to the SRS takeover.
The third post was sarcasm.
Why don't you stop fucking responding to the little idiot.
it just says 'other' which could be hispanics, native americans, indians, etc
and they perceived their own race LESS than they were intended
Marge isn't a caucasian though, she's a rabbit
It just makes you look like a pissed off landwhale from SRS. Your IQ is too low to even be a kike.
Those picture are general features found in almost all anime and manga, and when you look at a side profile you'll see the character usually has an upturned nose and points out more, rather than being flat to the face like most Asian noses.
Also, when looking at character the are specifically said to be western, they almost never defer form the ones that are in japan. sometimes you'll see wavy hair or a longer chin, but most characters after 2008 have all the same features no mater where there from west or east.
Fuck off, /v/ermin.
Try to put this study into perspective instead of blindly eating the first conclusion that comes to mind. Where was that black girl living ? I guess either in the USA or England. Either way that girl probably spent a lot of time watching TV and reading magazines. What is the predominant race on TV in the first world ? That little black girl probably never saw a commercial for a black doll on TV. It's not surprising she chose the white one.
I'll tell you again. You've moved the goalposts, because your first argument got disproven. You were wrong. You failed.
I don't think any race has features where their eyes cover 80% of their face.
I'm sorry if we aren't bending over to accept the fact that one of the most insular mediums in a very xenophobic country is making all of their characters white when they are clearly based on Japanese women.
But even white people also don't have natural pink colour of hair nor eyes.
>Those picture are general features found in almost all anime and manga, and when you look at a side profile you'll see the character usually has an upturned nose and points out more, rather than being flat to the face like most Asian noses.
You'll also notice they have bright pink/green/blue hair, eyes the size of a man's fist, and no teeth. They're cartoon characters.
What the fuck is happening today? Earlier we had a /pol/ thread that hit bump limit.
/pol/, get the fuck out. Just because it's Valentine's Day and you realized no girl cares about your shit doesn't give you the right to shit other boards.
It's not surprising she chose the white one when black people are disgusting.
> sometimes you'll see wavy hair or a longer chin, but most characters after 2008 have all the same features no mater where there from west or east.
So therefore they're from the west?
learn to perspecitve
How are they clearly based on Japanese women? Everything about them, from their eyes to their skull structure, screams white.
Reddit, you were never welcome here. /pol/ was always the majority opinion until you came here. Believe it or not, people were actually right-leaning before /pol/ existed! Hard to believe, huh?
>Not bright white hair with red eyes or something
you guys are battling it out hardcore over whose right and whatever, here's my two cents whatever its worth
seems to share my thoughts a little
>If they did, they'd look bad
no one's gonna watch a show full of ugly 'realistic' looking characters, regardless of how they act. theyre making art, not realistic interpretations of people. in my mind at least, art is art because it is created as a 'perfect' version of what inspired it, or that it is based off of. if it wasnt it would be a fucking picture, not to say photography cant be art, but something from a science textboook. trying to figure out what race they're based around is pointless and, if i had to guess, revolves around what the artist personally thinks is best.
its art man, inspired by any number of things that vary from piece to piece. just because some or most seem to agree in what they try to capture doesn't mean you can define it by a hard rule
>my two cents is spent
such dedicated shitposters
