    Does a bear shit in the woods?
    I actually don't know, but for some reason that phrase jumped into my head as soon as I read the thread title and if I hadn't typed it out it would have been stuck in my head all day. I apologize.

    He blue now, boi. Old information.

    The creator said that he chose blonde because it was less work for his assistants when they were colouring in the hair. In Japan each successful manga artist has multiple assistants to help them with the finishing touches of the manga pages, manually colouring in stuff solid black and adding screentones for shading. All the stuff that looks like it might have been done on a computer is actually done by hand.

    I don't see the problem.

    Today's climate: anything that makes white men look cool/positive = offensive.

    I like that there's always a practical and simple reason for things like this when you have other people accusing Dragonball Z of promoting caucasian supremacy <45>

  18. I think so. Isn't big eyes in anime exaggerating western culture's wide eyes? Or am I just out of my element and unknowingly racist in that area?

    The anime eyes are inspired by Donald Duck, but it's true we can't assume anime characters are meant to be Japanese by default.
