    That's actually my initial assumption. He wouldn't be the first and certainly not the last.

    And now to try and actually turn this into a semi-worthwhile discussion:
    I believe there's no such thing as an Asian race. Only a human race.

    So, are you saying this is not your opinion but that of your "buddy"? It's a really poor decision of you to consider someone like that person as a friend. Although I am no one to judge on who you make a friendship with.

    But, really...as a person born in Asia and assuming you follow asian traditions. Your two posts put you to shame. Our traditions most publically and avidly emphasizes on being humble, being obedient and pay respect to others. There's a fine line between having pride on your country and ethnicity and then down right being racist.

    Aren't you stereotyping the western society a little too much? Just because a few members of the Western world criticizes the things Asians have created doesn't necessarily mean that everyone single living soul thinks that way.

    But, even so...what kind of grudge do you hold against westerners? And WHY do you pick such a irrelavent topic such as anime to declare that Asian is the best race? I mean its not like Anime is a solution to a world epidemic or something of that sort. I might as well say that your comparing us almost in the same set of values the Nazis had back in WWII.

    And actually anime is influenced on western like characteristics...or else we would be seeing all animes characters in traditonal clothing rather than the western clothing. Neither would we being seeing english words in the anime, as a matter of fact a lot of the Asian languages have adopted english words.

    I was thinking the exact same thing Arrianna.

    And as Shizuka has said, a lot of anime characters are in fact based off western characteristics. Also, you mention saying that anime characters body type are based off of the Asian body type. I would have to respectfully disagree do to the fact that I have not yet seen any one, even Asians, having that physical kind of body type. It’s not possible for the human body to have that kind of physical build to it, not naturally any ways. Now there are people that come close, how ever that is a mixed group of people from all around the world.
    The anime body type we see is based off of what the concept of what looks attractive and sexy and cute to the human mind and this is what the artist draws up.

    All of your fantasy end hitting the reality of Asian cosplayers being better or look more like the Anime characters they cosplayed.

    You should find a good reason for that and not keep making fantasy that end as a fantasy and not reality.
    REMEMBER we Asians are the one who made ALL of the Anime you love
    REMEMBER we Asians are the one who make the most awesome video games
    Who the most cutest and adorable males & females? Asian
    Are you proud to be Asian? YES! I'm very proud to be Asian!

    But is your reality actually true??? You have yet to address the questions against the information and arguments that you have provided... If you yourself are unwilling to back up the statements you've provided, why should anyone consider them as the truth?!?!
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    1. This entire thread is rascist.

    2. I'd like to see an Asian cosplay Afro from Afro Samurai.

    3. This is just a way to boast about ethnicity, and it's insulting. I'm half Japanese, and I don't go spouting about it.

    This is like telling Asians only white people can dress up for Halloween.

    (I JUST HAD TO ADD THIS:



    )

    If I wasn't HALF WHITE TOO I would've never pulled this off.

    So you deny the truth about Asian cosplayers are better or look more like Anime characters compared to american or westerner cosplayers who cosplay the same Anime characters?

    The proof is not that far to look at since you can even see it on youtube, just type Anime Cosplay and you will mostly see Asian cosplayers EXCEPT if the video were made by someone to promote him/his self or his/her cosplay group. Not only that, most comments on there also said how it is Asian who look better cosplaying.
    REMEMBER we Asians are the one who made ALL of the Anime you love

    Who the most cutest and adorable males & females? Asian
