>>5697482>But we do have fuckloads of anime.
That's not from Japan pushing anime to the west though.
Have you ever even looked into the history of how anime came over here?
It was not an industry push from Japan.
It was a mix of early weebs that introduced anime to the west via pirating, and western producers like Carl Maek wanting to bring that stuff over here.
The anime industry has never focused on marketing to the west until very recently over the last decade. (Though there have been very fringe cases like the Big O and FLCL's sequels)
And even then we're still only seen as a peripheral audience and when they do market things to us we get the bare minimum, if you wanna see what real anime marketing looks like look at Japanese ad campaigns and all the merchandising they do.
Companies like Crunchyroll and Viz that bring anime to the west are American in origin.>nobody argued that literally every single japanese film and series needs to have a black person in it. The argument was for MORE representation, not total domination.
Then how is that sufficient representation supposed to look like? What is the line between enough and not enough?
Because it's not like there aren't any black characters in anime at all.>yes, and we already do that. American films, video games, and television are already heavily changed and edited to cater to the chinese market
Yeah, but that's usually in the form of censorship which is a completely different topic from representation.
We're not throwing chinese actors into films to appease them, and the few times I can think of that happening it was usually for minor roles.>Yes, we can relate to non-black characters just like people can survive on flavorless meal replacement drinks
Is the implication here that somehow adding black characters would inherently be more interesting?>This statement is evident enough that you're arguing in complete bad faith.
Whatever helps you sleep at night
