Default have you guys ever noticed most naruto characters dont even look asian?

I remember when i was watching naruto one time( on tv) and my mom asked me why none of the characters even look japanese. She also thought sasuke was a woman but thats a story for a nother time... Anyway what do you people think? why do so few of them look asian?

I don't why they don't look Asian. They were just drawn the way they were drawn.

Seeing as how the countries and locales are not real, the culture and people can vary. For example the Cloud village seems to have a lot of African Americans. So for all we know the villages we haven't seen many people from could look Asian, Australian, or whatever.

Naruto, Deidara, Sasori kinda, Nagato, Yahiko, Tsunade, Temari, Jiraiya, and many more characters don't look asian at all.....
Some people don't even look like people.
Examples: Deidara, Zetsu, Kisame, Orochimaru, and Sakura.

Default Re: have you guys ever noticed most naruto characters dont even look asian?

Maybe its that Asian people don't look all that different from others??

Well it is true. I mean Naruto is sort of white looking and Temari, well I don't get how she's blonde either. Gaara also is a sand-boy.

Well I guess its cause they're characters, drawn, so drawings don't really have race.

And there's a whole social issue-college level discussion answer as to the reason. Cause in the manga they are more asiany, but in the anime they lose some of their oriental characteristisc. But in short, the anime producers realized American looking anime characters are more popular in the West, rather than japanese. If you make the characters look "white" that increases the appeal and possible audience tenfold.

A lot of anime don't have them look Asian such as Shaman King, Bleach, One-piece, Black-cat, etc.

I'm not sure why though.

yeah right...lol!
but they invented anime, right?
needs more confidence...they're good but don't even realize it.
i'll pick Naruto than Superman...teehee.

and maybe its all because of the western cultural influence devouring the whole wide world!

its like that in most anime and mangas. I think it is easier to draw non-aisian people if you have ever tried drawing anime before. If kisame can be a fish then they can be as white as they want.
