I like when they show different people in anime, it shows how they aren't socially disconnected from other countries, like a lot of Asian countries are, it just shows how they're thinking of the whole world entirely and all the different people on it.
I don't mean to be a contrarian or speak against showing different ethnic groups in any form of media, but this ain't an example of it. His name is Takagi Gen. He's not ethnically diverse, he's a Japanese guy with a tan and a hairdo.
I mean, I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, but that's not how that works, Almight himself is actually said to be an American (but I think that was obvious from all the states he knows) but his name is Kenta Miyake. This is still an anime so names aren't really a big detail of who they are and what their ethicality is, I don't really think it matters if his name is Japanese or not, in fact, my name is from greek and I'm mostly black myself.
All Might ain't American, his teachers were Japanese, he went to UA, and he was born in Tokyo. Dunno where you're getting the idea that people outside of Japan in anime are given Japanese names 'cause I've never run into that. Even in BNHA, everyone named who's not from Japan or ethnically Japanese doesn't have a Japanese name (like David and Melissa Shield). Also, according to the wiki, Takagi Ken (not Gen, messed up), AKA Rock Lock, was born in Tokushima. So, yeah, dude's Japanese.
I don't like the downvote feature either, what's the point of a comment section when you can't give your opinion without someone disagreeing and just downvoting it? at that point, it's just an echo chamber who only agree and don't want their feelings hurt by getting offended by something they don't agree with.
there's def problems with downvoting like the mob mentality that follows - I personally like limiting negative stuff for more positive space but bruh, this is the nature of things, you can say whatever you want doesn't mean people won't like it
I'm really for the representation and dude's character design but still kinda upsetting he sounded like kind of a dick - hoping they show him in better light down the road while they expand on his backstory
