So imitating our Anime, Manga and our other Asian based characters are also the same as imitating us Asians [ only to those who are not Asian ] because we Asians make our Anime/Asian characters based on us Asians, without our Asian's appearance then the appearance of our Anime/Asian characters will be different from the way our Anime/Asian characters appearance you see that they will end up look like cartoon/western characters or other characters that are based on other race, in other words it is thanks to our Asians apparance that make it possible for our Anime/Asian characters to look as they way they are.
This is the reason why our Anime/Asian characters look totally different from cartoon/western characters because we Asians make our Anime/Asian characters based on us Asians while westerners make their cartoon/western characters based on themselves, it is very obvious that westerners are not the same race as us Asians so it is also very obvious that they look very different from us Asians. And each race have their own unique appearance which make it possible to tell who is Asian, who is african, who is westerner, etc and that is also the reason why peoples from the same race are look similar to each other while look different from the peoples from other races.
If you found any westerners who hallucinating or claiming that our Anime/Asian characters are based on them then just tell them to answer this question "if our Anime/Asian characters [ Sakura, Haruhi and our other Anime characters name you know ] are really based on you westerners then based on who are the cartoon/western characters [ Mary Jane, Wonder Woman, etc ] you westerners made?", if possible also show those westerners the characters pictures so that they won't be able to make more nonsense next. If those westerners are saying their cartoon/western characters are also based on themselves then tell them that is impossible because their cartoon/western characters look very different from our Anime/Asian characters and the pictures will prove it more. And if those westerners are saying their cartoon/western characters are based on us Asians then tell them that is also impossible because we Asians are not born looking like that.
Only us Asians who look like this = Only us Asians who can Cosplay our Anime/Asian characters
Proud To Be Asian!
