When I was getting into Star Blazers and Robotech, my mother was always asking me if the artists ever made asian characters; why were the heroes and other characters always white and so forth. I had no answer. But her questions always nagged at the back of my mind. In College, I had a roommate who loved all things japanese. He'd even wear tabi boots around...Anyway, he got a lot of manga from his trip to Tokyo, and would read it to study up his japanese. One of his favorites was a mercenary pilot thing called Area 88. I paged through it, and then at some point, we managed to get ahold of the anime, and it became obvious that the character had blonde hair and blue eyes, but had a japanese name. So I asked, "Why does this guy have a japanese name if he's a white dude? Was he raised in Japan or something?" And he tells me, "No, he's japanese, dude."
So, we got into this argument about whether or not japanese people have naturally blonde hair and blue eyes. he finally argued the possibility that the character had dyed his hair and wore blue contacts. It seemed idiotic that a hardcore mercenary pilot bad-ass would dye his hair and wear colored contacts, especially given the fact that their base was in some remote desolate-ass desert.
