Anonymous said: With the big hero 6 white washing thing, I agree that he looks Asian. I think they went with the big anime sort of eyes but it's Disney so it doesn't translate as anime, it just looks like slightly bigger Disney eyes.
It’s not that, differentiating race in anime is typically difficult because most anime use the same eyes for different races; they just have a feature that stands out and signifies that race, dark skin for a southeast asian, a different nose or hair/eye color for a Caucasian.
What I mean when Hiro looks Japanese to me, is that he looks Japanese to me. I wish people would stop saying Hiro doesn’t look Asian because there are many kinds of Asians and we all look different. Indians are Asian and they usually have big eyes and dark skin. So I mean specifically that I think Hiro looks Japanese.
Many Japanese people do not have stereotypical yellow skin. I don’t know where the stereotypes come from, but many people in countries like China, Japan and Korea have very fair white skin. And since we’re on the topic of Hiro’s eyes, yes while some of us do have slanty eyes, not all of us do. So just because Hiro doesn’t have slanty eyes it doesn’t mean he doesn’t look Asian.
Lastly, I believe that Disney has successfully designed for Hiro a Japanese face without using the stereotypes Japanese are known for. Aaaaghhh I can’t explain it but if you have met and known enough Japanese people and are able to differentiate them from Chinese and Koreans, you’d be able to understand why Hiro’s features looks Japanese to me.
Hiro kind of reminds me of actor Koike Teppei. A super cute distinctively Japanese face without exaggeratedly slanty eyes.
I don’t mean to lash out on you, anon, but I felt the need to clarify my earlier post on Hiro’s ‘whitewashing’.@1 week ago with 16 notes

Okay people who are complaining that Hiro is whitewashed and/or doesn’t look Asian enough need to meet some real Japanese people because Hiro looks really Japanese to me.@2 months ago with 23 notes
