Why aren’t there never any south Asian, middle Eastern, or Latino people in anime? 317 viewsSeptember 15, 2020 Question31.48K September 14, 2020 2 Answers Why foreign characters in anime are mostly limited to Americans? In: Other BelmontIncident commented September 14, 2020 Americans are the most prominent foreigners in Japan, although there actually is anime set elsewhere. Tezuka’s manga on the life of Buddha was adapted as anime in 2011 and all of the characters are necessarily south Asian. SmashingLobotomy commented September 14, 2020 There are some, though yes very limited. Like the older Western comics and unlike modern west comics, manga doesn’t really have a need to broaden their cast past Japan. And if they’re going to have a character who is partly defined as being foreign, why not pick the one the country knows the most about that is also, as far as basic stereotypes go, contrasting to the Japanese characters. 0 Answers ActiveVotedNewestOldest Register or Login Other Questions You Might Be Interested In: How are the roots of plants & trees able to communicate information with each other?Why do tortoise live so much longer than other reptiles that may be related to them?can you develop strep throat or do you have to catch it from someone who has it?What were the logistics of early colonists paying taxes to the British?ELIF: How do consumables that claim to have no sugar still taste somewhat sweet?the concept of empty calories.
