    Like, I don't think the Japanese really understand the racist connotation that making a black person a gorilla has, but I am pretty certain the fact he's black played a part in the concoction of that image... that said the pic would *still* work effectively if he were white... so there's a bit of doubt in my mind as to whether the author is racist or simply oblivious in a very japanese kind of way.
    The author has a weird thing about black people. In Korokuro no basket the black guys were a tad problematic too. I don't think quite this bad, at least not where I left off in those streetball games. I feel he must be aware on some level to keep doing stuff like that. Whether he's malicious about it or not is another thing. Japan seems to have weird (outdated) views on black people. I mostly chalk it up to ignorance.

    Altough he looks very ape-ish, I'm pretty sure he's supposed to be a bigfoot/sasquatch. He's standing up straight and all, altough it's hard to see if that's a thumb or a toe on his foot.
    Not disagreeing in how unfortunate the picture looks but I think in this case it was just a lack of awereness since Japan, and a lot of easter Asia I guess, don't really do black people.

    “Eastern Asia doesn’t really do black people” lol quote of the year right here, so blunt hahaha

    On a similar note, is there some sort of racist connection between bigfoot and black people (other than the ape stereotype)? I always thought bigfoot was like... ‘murican Yeti. But Yetis have white fur... is that not the case for Bigfoot? -curious-

    Well, the yeti has white fur because he comes from the snowy mountains of the Himalaias, the sasquatch comes from the north american forests so they have brown fur like grizzly bears.

    You can think of it like those old RPGs where the same sprite/model is recoloured to make a slighty different enemy.

    3rd reboot, huh. Will this finally be the one that covers the World Youth Tournament ? Doubtful unfortunately so I'm keeping my expectations very low.

    lol Dr. Stone actually sold 2k less than the second volume that had the same amount of time O_o Yes, is just 2k, but for a series that is going so well in the magazine and getting a lot of push from the editors, it was expected to actually grow in sales.

    Happy to see Black Clover starting with 40k more than the last volume, already surpassing Gintama :)

    Wah for a series whose doom is already set Cross Account's sale is still so unexpectedly good

    New Tsubasa animu??? and just in the year of the World Cup??

    Money and the only place where Japan wins against Brazil and Germany are the back reasons for that.
