https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnKdIzSWiz4

I say that's just an opinion, kind of like the ones here:

I don’t really agree with him. But I only lived in Japan for a little while. But from my halfie friends who live(d) there the country really isn’t pro mixed people still. Media even in japan doesn’t feature too many mixed actors. And when mixed actors go back to Japan (if they were born there and then raised outside) they often aren’t allowed to speak in Japanese because the Japanese media higher ups don’t see them as being Japanese. They seem to like when full Japanese people can speak fluent English, French or German though heh. They do however love Hollywood stuff and I used to watch US tv while I was there just dubbed in Japanese which I found kind of odd to see so much of. Do agree a lot of the models and ads in Japan are all over the place with Japanese and White models/actors though. Also the guy keeps saying all Ghibli characters are white when there’s grave of the fireflies, totoro, spirited away and Mononoke that are hugely Japanese narratives, not to mention a ton of others. Ghibli does have a lot of European stories though, but mostly because the movies are based on a lot of European books and Hayao likes those kinds of stories I guess, while the rest of the company sticks to Japanese type stuff. He also keeps calling Haku white when he’s supposed to be a Japanese river spirit. Think he was maybe getting Howl and Haku mixed up, but still odd overall.

Gonna show it to my roommates, one of whom is half Japanese and the other full Japanese from Japan and invested in the ent industry to see if they agree/disagree with him.

All that said a lot of Asia does have a pretty strong fascination with Western culture/style/aesthetics.

So white people don't get nose jobs, lip injections, and all types of different plastic surgeries
that guy doesn't even understand anime like most people, and he is projecting his white supremacy views on others

When japanese people dye their hair blonde, orange, red, and all types of colors like anime characters

how is this relevant, the guy clearly doesn't understand anime and that spirit away girl looks asian to me for the example he showed

Also pale skin in japan is regarded as royalty because the royal family never left the castle and were pale,
and farmers from okinawa were dark skin because they were out farmer all the time

Japanese were also very racist, why do you think Adolf Hitler were allies with them and called the honorary Ayrans lmao, The Japanese are the white people of the east, so they view themselves as white, but of course most people are under white supremacy so we view anything white as european, but as a person of color I see japanese as pale skin, they have white skin, like Lonzo Ball the basketball his daddy is black but his skin is white I don't care anybody says I have eyes and I can see lmao

I'm a light skin black person, my skin is very light but not white, but if an anime artist drew me why skin tone would look like goku's on Dragon Ball Z

White skin worshipped started in India with the caste system, the white skin Indians are still consider superior in India than the dark Indians even though they are more dark skin Indians than white skin Indians

The fact is ANIME CHARACTERS DO NOT LOOK LIKE WHITE PEOPLE
Westerners live under white supremacy so if a Asian is yellow like how they have always been depicted in western media, then they are trying to be white

Asians dying their hair and wearing contacts is SOMETHING EVERYBODY DOES

Some Asians even put stuff in their hair to make it nappy like black people and wear black hairstyles

Asians aren't a monolithic group, you have fair skin asians you have dark skin asians

even Pakistanis are asian people think they are Arabs or Indians

How can say these look like white people, I don't get it

seems spot on to me

People are projecting their inferiority complex on the japanese

What you are calling WHITE or WHITE FEATURES, ITS JUST ATTACTIVENESS

you've been living under white supremacy in the west for so long you associate attractiveness with WHITENESS

Anime characters have always had Asian features unless they were white characters

like Attack on Titan, the characters on attack on titan DO NOT HAVE TRIANGLE FACES and more square jawed like how europeans are in real life

and the Mikasa the only oriental on the show looks a typical anime girl she is clearly japanese

It's not that hard to see

When I was a kid I use to think Macho Man and Hulk Hogan were black because they really tan and their skin was dark brown to me, I didn't realize their skin was white underneath all that tanning oil lmao because as a kid we always associated race with skin color

but the reality skin color has nothing to do with you race, your bone structure and hair texture are indicators of your race

because every race comes in different shades, even white people who range from paper white to olive skin to dark red

black people can be fair skin, yellow, light brown, dark brown, and literally black

so can Indians they can blacker than black people and they aren't black

some japanese people are whitier than most white people and some are dark, complexion is not an indicator of race

Honestly Final Fantasy characters look like Eastern European models to me:

FF characters could pass for Eurasian as well, but very few characters look completely Western European or East Asian to me. I see young guys and gals on the streets of Kyiv who look like FF characters all the time.

In terms of the main trio in the Remake specifically, Tifa looks mixed with stronger asian genes(she looked full asian in AC tho), Cloud looks mixed with stronger white genes, and Aerith has always looked white.
