Through the Fire: White-Washing Anime's Real Problem

Brett Fujioka writes, "White-washing may be one of only many problems, but it’s still a problem. America as a whole may at best subconsciously want to see white leading actors on the screen. However, American otaku consists of Asiaphiles and wants to see Asian actors on screen. They’re people who love anime because of its 'Japaneseness.' Anime remains a niche medium for consumers and it makes no sense to disobey the demands of the people willing to purchase a movie ticket."
