TWO QUESTIONS: ONE, HOW DID HE GET ALL OF HIS FRIENDS TO FOLLOW THROUGH AND TWO, HOW ARE THE TEACHERS ON BOARD WITH HIM MAKING VINES DURING CLASS???
I can’t decide which is funnier: the kid in the front who high-fives himself then just rips paper in anger, the girl who magically loses her sweater, or the two kids in the back right who go from lovers to mortal enemies

The East Asian women + colored hair trope
(An extension of extraextraex’s post.)
Looking at the pictures above, it’s pretty easy to find the similarities. East Asian women with dyed purple/blue/red hair, usually in a streak. No matter how you look at this, this is an uncomfortably specific trend in media. Yeah, it looks cute, but after seeing this over and over again, it becomes a boring, racist trope. This originated from a variety of possibilities: the creators trying to “Americanize” the East Asian character, make them more “exotic”, or to show how unique this character is. She’s not a giggling schoolgirl or a delicate lotus flower, she’s different! See, she has a streak of purple hair (god forbid she dyes it any other color), look how radical that is, look at our modern Dragon Lady!
And yes, Knives dyed her hair to look like Ramona, and yes, Somni-451’s hair is like that to mark her as a clone, but these characters do not exist in a vacuum. You can justify why a character has a specific appearance, but in the end, this character was created, and contributes to stereotypes no matter the intent.
So the moral of this story is that your Asian character with a strip of purple hair isn’t original. It isn’t unique. No matter how innocent this appears to be, it can be detrimental to East Asian girls, since the characters that look like them have the same exact traits. It’s time to explore different ways of designing East Asian characters, instead of just slapping on some purple and calling it a day.
wow i did not notice this until it got pointed out.
…I didn’t even realize this was a cliche (probably because of most of these examples are from Western media and I don’t watch them often)……but…I don’t really think it’s a problem? A cliche, a mark of being ‘unique’ and kind of anime-like, sure, but…not really something I personally would be offended over as someone who identifies with an Eastern Asian heritage.
If character designers really wanted to be ‘realistic’ in what hair colors East Asian girls dye their hair, blonde and brown are pretty normal, right? Or you could just, y’know, have plain black hair. (And maybe Asian girl protagonist of the non-asskicking but still headstrong variety? Come on! They exist more in real life than in fiction, it seems!)
just found out that lucina’s dad is in fact for sale
