ogatamon no tumblr dess-oo!
You may know me from making Japanese pony videos on YouTube. I hope that whilst you're here you'll stop to ask me some stuff. Please enjoy my little Tumblr corner. The roof leaks and the tatami mat is all frayed but I do have tea and cakes. And also several chickens running around.

IT’S MANGA RESEARCH TIME— Race in Manga

I’d like to ask people what they think about the portrayal of race in manga. The thing is, reading a few manga, I worry sometimes that race in manga is never handled as well as it could be and if I become a manga artist I don’t want to make the same mistakes.

Perhaps asking this is racist in itself, but I do primarily want to hear from those who are not white-caucasian (though white-caucasians are welcome to talk to me about their feelings, too, if they feel particularly strongly about it!).

So, lovely Tumblr bloggers in Indonesia, the States, the UK, China, the Philippines, France, Hong Kong, wherever you may be, please message me if you’d be happy to share your feelings about:

  • How you feel that race is represented in manga. 
  • Any manga that you feel represent it particularly well.
  • How you feel race should be represented (anything from visual elements to plot elements).

I should add that nobody’s names are going to be used and nobody’s one particular opinion will be reflected in any comics that I write. I’m just interested to hear individual feelings about this issue. ^^ Please also let me know if I’m being a racist bitch by asking this, too, that is equally important…

Please also reblog this for any of your followers who might be interested.

Thank you!
