Why do anime creators have to include black characters in their story? So should black panther be an asian guy? Cultural appropriation and inclusion is fucking stupid. If there is a black artist that wants to create anime, there is no one stopping them.

Simple: People can cosplay as any character they desire. People have immutable characteristics which either cannot be changed or take tedious efforts to change. As such, people should forgive a cosplayer for something they cannot change.

I usually complain when the over all esthetic doesn't feel right. By that I mean when it doesn't seem to flow together as a whole. Seen some awesome cosplayers regardless of skin color, but have seen some that don't seem to fit the theme, or mismatched the materials they use.
Kitkat5335
Kitkat5335 Päivä sitten
Just to clarify, theme is not skin color. Theme is tied to the style, personality, and universe of the character.

Go cosplay whatever you want. If you like the character, have fun! But if your costume and overall make-up, accessories, props, etc are not very good and/or if you don't really look like the character you are cosplaying, don't expect people to praise you. After all, you're doing this because it's fun, right?

I cannot believe that this is an actual issue but I KNOW that it is. I wish a b*tch would feel sometype of way about me cosplaying a character for the crime of being black. How ridiculous do you have to be to feel sometype of way about people appreciating another culture ESPECIALLY if you're also not a part of that culture. Find a life.

This is not a race thing dudes. First off, screw VICE and their constant stoking of this agenda crap. Second, jerks who are OCD about likeness to a character are just that, jerks. This happens to literally every race, even white people cosplaying as a black character. Fat people cosplaying as skinny ones and vice versa. If you don't look exactly like the character, they're going to say something and you should just ignore it. But hey, if it gets VICE clicks they don't care about how inaccurate the portray the situation. I landed in a situation like this myself which I am white and almost got jumped for cosplaying as Ogun which pissed a group of dudes for "whitewashing" a black character but I've gone to conventions since 2015 and never have I seen this happen to black people.

Damn they all look amazing! Cosplay is for everyone, and it's also good to show your own spin/interpretation of a given character. If a black person wants to do their spin on a white/light skin character, go for it! If a white person wants to do their own interpretation of a black character, go for it, same for asian cosplayers cosplaying non-asian characters in their own way. Damn, when did ppl become so vile that ruining someone's fun time is a thing? Again, you do you, as long as it's not the messed up black face/white face sorta cosplay... it's all good, do your interpretation of your fav character and have fun!

I say do what you do. If you love cosplay, cosplay! Not being the same race, ethnicity or gender should never discourage one from expressing their love for these franchises and communities. In fact, love seeing these different takes on characters, it's always a treat to see a character I've grown up watching or reading presented in a new and stylish way that shows celebrates the source material while making the style their own.

1. Most cosplayers look nothing like the person they're trying to look like. Have you not seen anime characters? Now, have you seen anime convention attendees? Cos play is about having fun dressing up as something you enjoy. 2. There is truth to the fact that Japanese anime depict a lot of white people. It simply isn't true that they're supposed to be Japanese in the shows. There are no blonde haired, blue eyes Japanese people. And even when the character is Japanese, a white person is almost always gonna pull the look off more naturally than a black/brown person just because Japanese (East Asian) and white people have more similar skin tones. That doesn't take away from the fun of it. 3. Of all anime fans, black ones have, in my experience, been the more "normal" ones. Anime is highly frowned upon in white American and Asian American society, so you oftwj end up with awkward dorks who "Naruto run" unironically. If the presence of more rooted fans does something to address that problem just by injecting some social normalcy, have at it. I dress up as itachi Uchiha at some anime cons and I'm brown af. It's not about you, I'm doing this for me.

Woahz completely didn't see black cosplayers painting white for eg Raven cosplay, noooo at alllll. Just get yourself together, color of skin IS a part of the character. You don't want to paint yourself? Ok then it's racebend, nothing wrong about it but start to see the truth. Cosplay makeup is always cosplay makeup, there is no racism when you literally pay respect to character you love by trying to be them.

I find this video interesting because as a black man who's into anime myself growing up most of the hate I received was from other black people calling me a fucking weeb or saying that I wanted to be white or Asian because I watched anime. I don't think there was ever a moment where I experienced racism from a white person because of my interest in anime altho this could be due largely in part to the fact that I didn't grow around a lot of white people but there were still a good few but it was still only really other black ppl who harshed on me for watching anime. I will say tho I've never cosplayed as an anime character in my life so I don't know what that experience would be like at all.

Based on the skin color, no one should be forbidden to dress as a white character cosplay because this kind forbidding is wrong and inhumane. But also it should not be still forgotten that white is not appropriate to dress as any black character (or any non-white character) cosplay as it is racism because of white skin and power history. In the case of black, the situation is different because then it is not a question of power.

Black girl here. I agree with most but i disagree with the notion that 'anime should have more black characters because there are black fans". Not true. It's their culture, we chose to like it. They shouldn't feel obligated to change anything for good or for bad, just because we voluntarily chose to become fans. Same thing with kpop. It is THEIR culture and THEIR choice.If they want to add a character that happens to be black, let them do it on their own motive. NOT for "representation" . Like that is just straight up asking for an unneccessary character or plot. I would be more touched if someone did that out of their own interest and desire, not because they felt pressured to do it.

Push the edges. I had the same experience playing basketball at the street ball hot spot in my city. I was called Larry (Larry Bird). Seemed like a slight. Freeze outs. I had to get into it and do some work to get acceptance. All my experiences till then were dominated by my racial grouping. Racism is real. But I want to give you all love. I love when cosplayers play with it and come up with their take.

This is based because when anime first came to America in the late 70s early 80s blacks werent interested. Anime is mostly asian. And lighter skinned asians discriminate against darker asians. Asians discriminate against blacks. But hey stop asian hate.i do cosplay. But will asians accept blacks in anime?? Prob not.
Marcellus St. Croix
Marcellus St. Croix 10 päivää sitten
@Luke Holloway i wouldnt go as far to say that. Racism, prejudice, discrimination are part of the human element but different levels. I do know Anime is tough for blacks because well the characters are asian/ white. So its tough for us to look like them. Unless you have light skin and some look of asian. Even in anime they rarely have black characters. So in cosplay we have to get creative with what we do. Thats just the reality. Nobody even has mentioned the black Green latern from justice league cartoons

@4:55 "..we don't lighten our skin to cosplay these characters.." @6:22 Lightens her skin to play characters. I honestly and truly believe anyone can do any cosplay regardless of any color, sex, weight, height or age. Also that they can interpret those characters in any way and make changes to the character how ever they please. They more variety the better. But there are parts of this segment that are super hypocritical. If some white dude turned up to a con dressed in a historically black character (even without black face) eg. Black Panther they would be hounded out of there in a instant. Acceptance works both ways. You can't ask for it one way but not allow it in others.

A real anime fan doesn't care about race or color of the cosplayer's skin. If they do they are fake fans. What anime fans care about is True to the Lore knowledge of said anime and if the cosplay is a very close replication of said anime. Those are real fans. A shared understanding and the feels for the anime.

@lilmamagc There are many folks who cry foul unfortunately, though, there plenty examples, I know a couple white cosplayers driven away by poor treatment just as much black people, its always the same, toxicity online. Not know what it is about being behind an anonymous avatar, but ppl lose sense of ettiquette. Ive even had to call out my own friends, people I know are good ppl, genuinely good people, its like they completely bi-polar/schitzo between real life and social media. Something about these platforms thats just a toxic influence many fall victim too/cannot resist with all the trolls around fueling it. I think whats important is that we dont lose sight that the loudest trolls are most oft the minority in any setting, and not a real part of the actual community, and when it comes to social media especially, you really cant assume that the trolls are even a true reflection of the actual fan base as they generally not even apart of it, but somebody outside just enjoying opportunity to cause trouble. When it comes to these fanfare and other such activities, I cant remember a time Ive ever actually seen real life imitate the toxicity of social (anti-social) media. People who hate things regularly join online sorts of groups/followings just to rile up the fans, try to ruin things out of spite, pretending to be part of the communities all the time, all spheres, even damn cooking groups and whatnot, and sadly it works, we live in a world we ppl just arent taught how to deal with emotion We've even had ppl arrested for citing violence, pretending to ppl people of races and cultures that they are not just so they incite the violence and hate, its crazy. You honestly dont know, with the anonymity allowed by the platforms, who's actually saying what anymore, who's driving the hate. Here is South Africa, we even experienced a PR firm from Britain cause trouble like that on a political lvl. Google 'Bell Pottinger WMC South Africa' . Mindblowing whats going on around the world, the sort of division being sown and by who for who.

no, you can do that of course!!! i think the problem is when people literally paint their skin the color to become that race. I can understand people are going for accuracy, but black face aside, i dont think its necessary and that you look better in your own skin. But i think ppl dont like it to see that considering the history attached to it. Even if the wearer has no ill intentions

I feel like this video is more about racism and less about anime. I was jumped and beaten by 4 kids in middle school because I liked anime and I've always been outcasted for it. I can see the point with cosplayers because the black community gets a LOT harder of a time with it but the reason they do is because of racists not people bashing on them because of anime in the first place. The way they make this video just feels like they're trying to act like the good guys and they don't actually mean it. (Vice, not the people interviewed or talked about)

TRUE, imagine a white person playing sister krone without black make-up, heresy imo, i think skin color plays a huge part of the character youre playing. Even casting can be annoying, for example gamora or starfire, imo black gamora kinda fit more than black starfire. Starfire was certainly not black in the comics or cartoons so its a bit stupid.

It's awesome so many people openly love anime because that means long time anime fans get more seasons, more remakes or reboots. I'm not okay with people claiming these anime for their own culture. Just don't forgot these stories and characters are made in JAPAN based on their Japanese culture. If you're not being represented in those anime, well I can imagine mostly NONE of us are! I'm not Japanese, you may not be Japanese. Wear whatever you want, I don't care. Just don't claim that anime is specifically for you or not including you, because that's just not the intention of these creators. I would think creators make these stories because PEOPLE like it, not because specific groups or cultures like it.
