    A few years ago a Korean classmate of mine explained the way she saw it. She said that these Anime-Makers "Want to be white". That they admire their culture and want to be like "Them". I don't know. Some characters look racially ambiguous....But I don't think that is wrong. That means they don't look like anything. They just look like, for the most part, random people with pearly white skin. Maybe the problem is that you can't necessarily see phenotype behind big cartoon eyes. The style itself is Asian. So there's no need to make overly big almond shaped eyes. As someone else said...Could be marketing too, depending on where the show gets shown. You want your product to look like it could be shown anywhere. Unless you're dealing with particular characters who do have a certain look.
