no i in i am

ok, so, if most anime is japanese, and if, as some say, anime is about the japanese identity, then why do most of the anime characters look so distinctively un-japanese? most do not even look asian but rather, caucasian. what is up with that?

It's well known that anime characters are based on the Japanese idea of a Western person.......Big eyes, big mouth and big breasts.
