i can appreciate the idea of asian representation on episode, but, like… why do so many of these characters look like white people? they just occasionally throw in a few words in chinese, or japanese, and bam! asian. idk, it just makes me feel a little uneasy.
and don’t say it’s hard to create asian-looking characters with the episode art style. it’s not. i tested it, and i was able to make people with chinese features, and filipino features.
despite the call for asian stories, i can’t help but feel a little like some of these authors and their readers really do prefer the look of white characters, and are willing to sacrifice asian faces for a more “white” look, and compensate with a ni hao every so often. idk. don’t come for me, haha!
