I can't believe this is something still slaying /a/.
It is Japan trying to be "different". Its been like this since fucking Speed Racer. Designing characters in games/anime with foreign attributes (white skin, blonde hair, blue eyes, large penises etc) is to make for more creativeness and create a sort of "stateless" character that can be "different" yet still relate to the japanese people.
However, faggots like Tetsuya Nomura take a massively successful franchise like FFVII, which succeeded largely because of its appeal to western audiences (and ripping off Berserk, ftw kitase-san!) , turn that shit sideways and rams it up the asses of his xenophobic race by masturbating to gackt furiously and slowly transforming everybody in the game to look like Gackt for his ultimate sexual fantasy.
In other words, this entire post was an excuse for me to go falcon punch nomura's face so hard he morphs into his worst fear.
A fat black man.
