Re: Pam Noles' Essay "Shame"

Ah, so I wasn't the only one who notices the severe lack of non-Caucasians in anime.

For that matter, they don't seem very plussed with the idea of using non-humanoid characters, either. I mean, what's the most exotic sentient species we've ever seen in anime---the Zentraedi from Robotech? The Japanese lack imagination or social flexibility or summat.

What's weirder is that anime characters have a tendency to look more Anglo than Asian. Whether this is because of a weird form of worship of the originators of animation or a residual fear-worship of Westerners following the 'Shima/'Saki bombings or something entirely different is beyond me, though.
