Anonymous asked;

Are you familiar with the upcoming Disney animation, Big Hero 6? I'm not acquainted with the original Marvel comics, but from what I saw from the trailers so far it seems pretty decent on its representation of japanese american characters (except maybe the overused genius asian sterotype). I have high hopes for this movie, but I'm also prepared for a possible disappointment. What are your thoughts on the movie?

thisisnotjapan:

Fred Zilla was originally supposed to be of Ainu descent.

This is Fred in the comics:

And this is how Fred looks now:

Wasabi no Ginger was originally supposed to be Japanese (not necessarily stated from what I’ve searched but it appears to be quite obvious that he is).

This is how he looked in the comics:

And this is how he looks now:

(And yes this is wrong because you just can’t go around erasing POC with other POC.)

This is how Honey Lemon looked in the comics:

Her real name btw, is Miyazaki Aiko and her hair isn’t even naturally blonde.

And oh look, here’s Rapunzel:

So that’s 3 out of the 5 original Asian characters that pretty much got erased which leaves Hiro and Gogo Tomago (sorry but I’m gonna ignore Tadashi as a main character).

Hiro is Japanese and white and Gogo Tomago is Japanese and what makes them look soooo different from each other? Hiro has wide eyes and Gogo Tomago has slanted ones. Like no really. THAT’S how they let you know he was also white. Because he has big eyes.

And the thing to top it all off is that the city is named San Fransokyo. San Fransokyo? Really? Like they really couldn’t just let Asian Americans be, you know, Asian and American. At the same time. Because apparently that doesn’t exist. They had to “other” the city in order to make sense of it all, and that’s some bullshit right there.

I understand if you’re Asian American, that this is in some ways something really big because it’s like blatant representation of us (and not super vague like with Russell in UP) but at the same time, it’s still pretty shitty. This is not to say absolutely don’t watch it, but take this movie more as a small stepping stone to more (and hopefully better) representation of us rather than a huge leap towards something greater.

White people:  We don't want any black people in our clubs, bars, parties, restaurants, schools, government, banks, neighborhoods, or offices
Black people:  Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else.
White people:  ......
White people:  Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?
