Who’s White and Who’s Japanese in Anime? Once Again, the Internet Compares

Earlier this year, there were discussions online in Japan on the "whiteness" of anime characters. That discussion, it seems, is not over.

A recent Japanese thread titled "Even After Seeing This, You Can Declare Anime Characters Japanese?" (これを見てもアニメキャラは日本人って言い切れるかい?) picked up this issue once again, trying to suss out the physical characteristics of anime characters and whether they can be identified as Caucasian or Asian (here, Japanese).

The story is too old to be commented.
