Oh wow 30 series, you've really been around the block. Are you fucking kidding me? I can think of a ton off the top of my head from very popular shows:
Gurren Lagann: http://gurrenlagann.wikia.com/wiki/Aretenborough_Koachicchi Not good enough? Maybe you've heard of One Piece?
http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Patty http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Jango http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Tonjit
No no, wait, those aren't important characters, how about:
ONE OF THE MOTHERFUCKING STRAWHATS. What forum are you on right now, Anbu?
Oh wait, still not enough for you? Here's a list of FUCKING DOZENS:
Dude I know what fucking black face is. Did you ever consider that maybe an AMERICAN theater tradition might not have the same social status or notoriety in JAPAN?
So basically your argument is "oh man filthy casual." Congrats, though, on selectively responding to everything I've said.
And of course I thought about the differences. I've already talked about the difference between Japanese and American racial experiences – if only in brief. You might try reading the post before responding next time. The entire point is within the context of this manga, which you seem to conveniently ignore.
So yeah don't know in conclusion maybe what you say makes a lot of sense to you but I don't think any perspective being very enstranged by that view(and arguably to no harm) on Subaru is wrong either. To people like me he's more defined by his father complex, by being a teenager and thus falling into stupid beliefs easily, etc.'
I don't disagree with the latter point – like I said, I don't think the author is intentionally racist or anything. There's clearly an attempt at redemption and character development. I just don't think it approached it from the right angle. I also think it's important to analyze what's actually there.
Anyway, I'm not interested in arguing against "he's Japanese dur!" Whatever keeps you at ease.
