Remember Bloodivores? I regret that I do.

Everyone was Chinese. Everyone had names that sounded like pots and pans fell down 2-3 steps. The plot was horrendous, and the character development wasn't there at all.

The only Chinese characters I can recall in recent anime, other than this abomination, are the prisoners in Building 5 in Nanbaka. They are literally;
>A guy who is Son Goku
>A guy who is a meaner Son Goku
>A gay guy who is a fish
>A black man with a severe underbite problem
>A Qi Gong using child
>A bland martial artist
>A doctor
>A gang leader

They all share one trait; they're Chinese as fuck. Like, they're not just dudes that are from China, but they're tropes with pointless makeup and fingernail polish that are based on Chinese tropes.

Why aren't there more Korean characters? I've seen Chinese characters in some anime but I've never seen any Koreans.

Indians are Chinese because they're Asian
>>
>>154808552
It's not just you. In the past, anime had characters of all sorts of nationalities and ethnicity. They were, in most cases, proper representations of characters from those countries rather than just stereotypes. You'd see a Mexican character who was just a normal guy with different skin color and hair, and he'd have some cultural points (like using a phrase or two in Spanish), and that's it. You'd see African characters who were entirely normal people, just with black skin and much taller bodies (as it's natural for Japanese to be manlets). Then, it just stopped. Now we have school boys with secret dark powers and school girls who aren't followed by tentacles 24/7. Shit's maddening.

Taiwanese and Chinese are literally the same race, cool strawman though

I´m saying this because for example, Bandai made figures for Ruki and Takato for the Digimon Tamers anniversary but not for Jenrya, the chinese kid, despite him and his digimon being popular as fuck specially among fujos.

>muh strawman

>>154808615
Anime is an incesteous artform that constantly copies itself until it's almost nothing but the same tropes and character archetypes. Otaku audience doesn't change and buys the same typical stuff again and again so the modern anime industry doesn't have any reason to make different things.

Taiwan's name is RoC not because they claim to be part of China but because they claim China is part of them. Kind of the opposite. IIRC a long while ago when China was having a bit of a communist peasant uprising the nobility fled to Taiwan where they had support.

There's no Koreans in anime when it doesn't matter. When it does, such as in the case of Hikaru no Go, there are definitely Koreans. Although their presence might be small and introduced just as side characters, they are definitely out there. Besides, Korea isn't a big enough country to be included in if an anime deals with international stuff. China, and the other western countries are. Korea comes up just as often as the Portuguese or Polish would.

>>
>>154808078
Because realistically the only reason you'd ever have a foreigner in a piece of media is either
1. Exotic cultures 'n shiet or
2. The fact that they are of X country is pertinent to the story, so it's a story about James Bond teaming up with a Russian to take down the Kremlin / using KGB expertise or something
3. Stereotypes
The first is irrelevant in anime because Chinese culture (in the form of cuisine, clothing, language, art, poetry, etc.) is for the most part not exotic to the Japanese, even in its ancient form.
The second doesn't really work unless they specifically have a story about toppling China, which I don't think anyone really wants to touch.
That leaves the third, and it explains why every Chinese girl in anime nearly without exception has hair buns and wears a China dress on a daily basis, and just about every Chinese character can TETSUZANKOU a fucking planetoid.

I mean the only time you generally have foreigners in anime, period, is one of the above scenarios. That, or it's a story about postapoc (in which China generally is a sidenote) or international stuff (in which China is rarely anything but the demons because come on it's Japan it's like America writing about Nazis).

>>154809919
>>154809472
>>154809204
Both the PRC and the RoC agree that there's only one China, the problem is that both sides insist they're the only China. Now obviously, one of them has the distinct advantage of a UN permanent seat, widespread international recognition, and far more economic / political / military might, so it's no wonder you rarely hear anything about Taiwan going for reunification.

>>154816943
China isn't 'big' enough because there's rarely a need for someone to be Chinese. Someone being British is an excuse for him to be a dandy old man. Someone being German is an excuse for him to be Frederich III. Someone being Chinese...really gives nothing because a nip works just as well 99% of the time, be it cooking, martial arts, or nerd-ness.

You have bajillions of tourists back and forth
You speak the same goddamn language as the people across the strait, it's not even a different dialect in the closer provinces it's straight up the same fucking language

It's a national pride thing. It might sound stupid or silly but that's how it is. A lot of people got fucked over by the chinese when the kmt Chinese get btfo and retreated to taiwan.

They took peoples lands and properties by force and were shown to have a very different culture and values. Keep in mind at this point taiwan had been ruled by imperial japan for fifty years so many people had Japanese etiquette. Many Chinese had also at this point lived on the island for generations and developed a sense of belonging here. These coming Chinese werent their friends.

The saltiness persisted, and now its mostly commies vs nationalists, and mainlander vs non. Hong kong has similar sentiment, as far as I know.

The Nationalists were hardly good though. They did shit like conscripting civilians to fight and other shady shit. When they were exiled to Taiwan, the Taiwanese had more in common in terms of culture with the Japanese, who had been there for several decades. To the natives, the nationalists seemed pretty barbaric in the way they acted, especially when they were seizing property and whatnot.

My grandfather, who was going to university in the capital at the time, left to go live with some relatives out in the country when they were conscripting civilians to fight the war they had already lost.

Just remember, the only reason the commies were allowed to rise up in the first place was because of how shitty the republic was. I will admit that the nationalists probably helped Taiwan maintain its sovereignty and that they were better than the commies (like that's hard), but they definitely were not all good, and the One China bullshit was definitely not something anybody there really cared about before they came over.

The problem, once again, is that cartoons appeal to a much narrower audience than what they could be doing. You would be throwing away money. The other problem is that for the most part chink animation's style is much more suited to comedy than action.

You can only really argue they were better than the commies up to the 80s. After Deng the leadership has been legit as fuck, whether you use the IR, economic, social welfare, or even environmental point of view (if we allow for the fact that China is a rapidly industrializing nation, their expected total emissions per-capita over the course of the industrializing period is astoundingly low, it just peaked really fucking fast). I don't like using the human rights method of discourse mainly because human rights is an extremely convinient term.

>Depending on your definition they've been declaring independence for 60 years
No, they haven't. That's the entire point. They're currently under different regimes but the official stance on both sides of the strait is that there is only one China, and the regime is simply divided. If Taiwan attempted to simply become Taiwan instead of the RoC and remain sovereign then Beijing is going to flip shit, they cannot stand for it on an ideological level and more importantly you will have half the country rising in mass revolt if Beijing does nothing to stop Taiwan from fucking off. Contrary to popular belief, if you've studied China it's clear that the government is rather beholden to public opinion on a lot of matters because in the end nobody knows better than the Communists the terror of losing the support of the common man. Their approval rating was 75% or so circa 2013.

>Also invasion is hilariously stupid considering current situations in the south china sea
The real reason Taiwan is important for the US isn't just a really close ''''ally'''' to China, but because Japan depends on the Taiwan strait for energy imports in the same way most of Asia depends on the Malacca / Homurz straits, and Taiwan would mean China gains its first really suitable base for blue ocean submarines.

>interdependence
It doesn't matter to Beijing, this goes past a mere economic problem. If they give up on Taiwan everyone is going to go apeshit. They are no longer in complete control of the problem. Furthermore their entire paradigm when it comes to Taiwan is that the war has to end before the US can act to help, in the same way the (first part of) the Iraq War ended so fucking fast that the Russians and Chinese had no time to intervene overtly or surreptitiously. This means within 3-5 days, and ideally within 24 hours. If this happens the actual damage to civilian and economic infrastructure should be pretty minimal and the economy might even benefit from reconstruction.

Taiwan isn't very hard to find on a map. Can you find Shenzhen on a map? It's close to overtaking Hong Kong.
I'm not saying I understand Taiwan. I honestly couldn't care much less about Taiwan's popular stance on the matter because in the end Taiwan has little to no say in the affair. China and the US are the ones who call the shots and to a lesser extent Japan, who has certain influence on the US when it comes to the Asia theatre. Taiwan's official stance is that there is only one China. This is the reality of the matter. The stance of Taiwan's people is only relevant insofar as to which side they're going to lean towards (which is pretty important in and of itself mind you) but Beijing flipping the table has nothing to do with Taiwan.

Are you mainland Chinese or something? Because I'm not talking about Taiwan's stance or Taiwan's internal situation. I don't fucking CARE about Taiwan. Taiwan is not relevant to the geopolitical reality of the area by itself, it's only relevant in how it may serve US or Chinese interests in the theatre. If Taiwan declares independence then Beijing has no choice but to at least try to win it back, this can be seen in plenty of think tank reports in Mandarin as well as in English.

Ah yes, this explains why the president before the current one got two terms despite his rather conciliatory treatment of China and why many old timers in Taiwan and China looked forward to further opening-up because it would allow them to visit their old homes.
Also, I just showed you that "Chinese" doesn't literally mean you're a commie. Insisting on being called Taiwanese is like insisting on being called a Brooklyner instead of an American and going ballistic when someone points out you're a retard. In fact, even the Brooklyner has more reason, because it's like how a UK guy can be both English and a Londoner at the same time. But no, a Taiwanese is only a Taiwanese, he certainly isn't Chinese despite his familly who is Chinese and his goverment who is Chinese and his cultural heritage which is Chinese and his language which is Chinese. It's fucking furry or transshit tier.

I was born in chinkland friend. No matter what the official stance is everyone acknowledges that Taiwan has been independent for 60 years. No one will flip shit if they declare it except maybe some politicians, public opinion will remain largely unchanged.

The government is not beholden to public opinion at all and the amount of support they have from normal people, at least in cities, is much lower than the official statistic of 75%. Also, it's more like the government tries to shape public opinion rather than the other way around.

>The real reason Taiwan is important for the US isn't just a really close ''''ally'''' to China, but because Japan depends on the Taiwan strait for energy imports in the same way most of Asia depends on the Malacca / Homurz straits, and Taiwan would mean China gains its first really suitable base for blue ocean submarines.
Yes, so you haven't refuted anything in the passage you quoted.

This is untrue, I'm studying there right now and people are still attached to it. Don't use the personal opinion of the actual elites - those guys understand more than the masses and subsequently care less about ideology.

>the amount of support they have from normal people, at least in cities, is much lower than the official statistic of 75%.
Yes and Trump is hated by the cities yet got elected. The villages love the government, and you can't blame them - Shenzhen is almost bigger than Hong Kong today. 30 years ago it was a fishing village.

>the government tries to shape public opinion
Every governement does this. Chinese government doesn't actively follow public opinion but they rarely act against it, at most they'll act with it while trying to soothe tensions.

>No one will flip shit
Did you even see the protests over inane minor bullshit like the Diaoyu islands? Diaoyu islands are nothing compared to Taiwan which is considered homeland.

>It would have to end within literal hours then
Have you READ the white papers? The Taiwan Government itself recognizes that buying further American defenses is largely pointless. Missile defenses are calculated to be drowned out by sheer weight of volume. Chinks have those weird waterskiing tanks and, by the Pentagon's own admission, better ASBMs than the US. Now I don't think that China can beat the US in a war, they'd be insane to try - but at the same time, the United States will not go to defend Taiwan unless Taiwan manages to truly drag the war on and it looks like there's a real chance of winning in support. The US is not ready for war with China on an economic basis and will hardly risk WW III over a war that is 'decided' - unless Taiwan puts up a really good fight and lasts for weeks.
Taiwan's options are how good of a deal it can cut or how long it can delay, that's just the cold facts.

The Nanking incident ironically is only well known because of American and British reporters who happened to be on site and decided to report about it to their home channels.

Yup. And just like the colonialists were radicalized by George III's actions, Taiwanese were radicalized by the 228 Incident, the subsequent repression of Taiwanese culture and identity by the KMT, and the PRC pointing missiles at Taiwan. And just like how the Loyalists died out after they either fled to Canada or accepted their new citizenship, most Taiwanese are abandoning Chinese identity now that mainlanders who were actually born on the mainland are dying out and the new generation has only lived on Taiwan.

Face it sempai, Chinese identity is as good as dead on Taiwan.

>>
>>154823536
I see your point, but once again I do not believe it is meaningful to speak of Taiwan culture as seperate from, instead of a subset of, Chinese culture, for the simple reason that there is no such thing as a rival Chinese state. Either you recognize the Republic of China and dismiss the People's Republic of China, or you recognize the People's Republic and cut off contact with the Republic. There's never this seperate country called Taiwan to get its own soveriegn culture going.
I'm not saying that the Taiwanese are the same as the Mainlanders, that's retarded. I'm simply saying that they're both the same people, they speak the same language, they have the same background and many of them still have direct family or cousins across the strait, and most importantly - either there is only the RoC or there is only the PRC, and either way there's only one China.

>>154823681
>In practice Taiwan does have their own unique langauge whatever the origins may be
They literally do not. I just listed the official language and the two most common languages in use by the Taiwanese. They're simply dialects, which is obvious because geographically Fujian and Guangzhou are literally right across the ocean and many people who fled were from those parts. You can have special snowflake languages but just because there was that one kid in school fluent in sanskrit for some ungodly reason doesn't mean the official language of the states is sanskrit.

>>154808637
Russians and Ukrainians are not the same, despite similarities

Chinese is a language family and there are multiple different Chinese groups pushed to identify as Han by the government for the purposes of artificially created a unified people

The Chinese of Taiwan largely derive from, I believe, Min Nan Chinese. The largest Chinese group on the mainland are the northern speakers of Mandarin, whose language (specifically the Beijing dialect) is labeled as "Putonghua" or the national language of China

Taiwan also uses Mandarin because Mandarin was the official language of the RoC when it controlled China

China itself is comparable to something like "Slavia", it is not a single homogenous people regardless of what the communist government says.

Likewise in Taiwan they have special acknowledgments for the minority of people who have Taiwan aboriginal ancestry and endowments to preserve those cultures.

Additionally there is Japanese influence on Taiwanese speech and society due to Japanese colonization.

Taiwan uses Traditional characters, the PRC uses their communist simplified characters.

On top of all this is the fact that traditional southern Chinese culture is largely intact on Taiwan while it was largely eradicated on the mainland by the Cultural Revolution- chinks seek out Taiwanese priests and masters to teach them the old religion and traditions.

They are not the same fucking thing.

First sentence in the wiki. The language with the most native speakers in Taiwan is Taiwanese Hokkien spoken by about 70% of the population. Unless you're saying that just because it's a variant from Hokkien doesn't make it Taiwanese. That would be like saying Cantonese and mandarin are the same thing.

China is not a fucking nation, that's the problem of the matter. You can't look at it through the westphalian lens, especially when currently as it stands there are two governments who both claim to be the legitimate government of all of China and neither side recognizes the other. In fact, it's impossible to have formal diplomatic relationships with both.

>>154824165
Cantonese is not the same fucking language as Mandarin, the written version is only the same due to script uniformity. Hokkein across Guangdong and in Taiwan are completely mutually intelligible. You're trying to say the Queen's English isn't English because it isn't Burger English.

>>154824171
That's not what I'm saying, I'm saying that even if you claim Taiwan to be the legitimate government, you automatically discredit the commies from being the legitimate government, which means...Taiwanese people are simply legitimate Chinese people, and the mainlanders become people living under a false government.

>>154823633
I think that from a Western perspective Japanese has more similar and familiar sounds, while Chinese sounds completely alien. At least that's the impression I get.
Case in point, from my experience Westerners can pronounce Japanese words with relative ease, but struggle to do so with Chinese ones, often to the point of being completely unable to reproduce the sound in an understandable way. Probably because of the tones.

The only reason why the ROC keeps up the charade of saying it's still the rightful owner of the mainland is because the PRC would immediately invade if they ever changed their name to the "Republic of Taiwan" and renounced their claim to the mainland. Polls consistently show that the vast majority of Taiwanese would be in favor of immediately declaring independence if there was no military threat from the PRC. Saying Taiwan still wants to "retake the mainland" is like saying a wife who can't leave her abusive husband because he's threatening to kill her is still in love with her husband.
>>
>>154824271

Yes, but they're still the same language. What undermines this is the fact that people in Guangdong speaking Cantonese and Fujian speaking Hokkien and Beijing speaking distorted Mandarin can all be Chinese despite their cultural and lingual differences, the latter of which far exceed that of Taiwan and Guangdong, yet Taiwan is somehow special despite not even actually being a seperate state because no nation to my knowledge formally recognizes both the RoC and the PRC.

>I'm simply saying that they're both the same people, they speak the same language, they have the same background and many of them still have direct family or cousins across the strait

Taiwanese will admit that they're culturally and ethnically 华人,just that their national identity is 台湾人 rather than 中国人. It's not impossible for them to acknowledge they have the same (or similar) culture to China while asserting a separate national identity.

This is a thing with some 2nd generation where they try to identify with their origins by going over the top with the jingoism /nationalism. See the Azteca bullshit from whitewashed SoCal Mexicans.

The entire crux of the problem you see is that 华人 was originally a coined word that literally means "Chinese", because during the turmoil of Lc19 -> c20, the governments in charge of China were attempting to foster some sort of national identity along the lines of westphalian ethnonationalism and came up with this idea that China could be boiled down to a few cultures and peoples, culminating in the semi-famous five-color flag representing the ""five peoples"" which comprised 华人 who populated 中国/中华国. In this context, 华人 is synonymous with 中国人 because both mean "Chinese people".

>>154824864
You're not wrong in saying that terms like 华人 and 汉族 were originally bullshit, however it doesn't change the fact that nowadays both mainlanders and Taiwanese use 华人 to mean Chinese in a cultural sense, while 中国人 means Chinese in a national sense. For instance, mainlander nationalists will specifically demand that Taiwanese celebrities say that they're 中国人 rather than just 华人。So while 华人 and 中国人 can both be translated as "Chinese" in English, saying they have the same meaning is bullshit.

I don't praise the CCP, I'm merely here for some research. I'm not literally enrolled in some sort of undergrad or grad program here. I give credit where due credit is due - they've completely obliterated the competition when it comes to the economy and they've managed to get some great triumphs in the field of international relations. They also have faults, such as their ridiculous level of corruption, the sort of weird emphasis on expensive yet ineffective censoring, and the ineffectual justice system which looks good on paper but never actually makes it to the streets.

>And the fact that you compare the right to self-determination to transgender people changing their gender only further confirms you're an idiot who should fuck off to /pol/.
The problem is their right to self determination has been exercised. They're a sovereign state - just because nobody recognizes them doesn't mean they haven't had self-determination. Why do I compare it to trannies? Because self determination would mean actually choosing your gender, while what you're pulling is insisting on not being called Chinese when the facts on the table show that indeed you are Chinese and your country is the Repub of China.

...that's not my point though. I've never said that Taiwanese people need to call themselves 中国人 for the reason you pointed out. But even if they call themselves 华人 that still translates to "Chinese". I'm annoyed at people from Taiwan who explicitly insist on being called Taiwanese as explicitly seperate from Chinese. There's nothing wrong with calling them Taiwanese, because it's a meaningful seperation in the same way "New Yorkers" isn't really the same as "Americans" or "Shanghai" isn't the same as "China". But to pretend you're not Chinese is stupid. Just because you're not a 中国人 doesn't mean you're not a 华人.

The facts on the table are that however unfair or fair it may be, the beaten wife is still the bad man's wife. You can say they shouldn't be and should seek help but you can't pretend they're not married.

I'm not disputing the facts as-is either, what I'm disputing is the assertion frequently made by Chinese nationalists (and foreign useful idiots such as yourself) that because there's no official "Republic of Taiwan", a Taiwanese national identity doesn't and shouldn't exist. Again, it would be like Britbongs asserting at the time of the American Revolution that because a significant number of colonists are Loyalists and because American independence is not widely recognized, that an American national identity therefore doesnt exist.

And to go back to my battered wife analogy, while the husband and wife are still officially married, they're living separately and the wife is begging for protection from her abusive husband. While we give Israel whatever weapons they want, Taiwan is continuously lobbying the US for more substantial arms packages. If Taiwan is asking for our help and is willing to pay for it, should we just abandon them?

It cannot exist as a seperate identity because the official Republic of China is Chinese in nature. I don't care what the people 'want', I'm saying that it's meaningless to insist on not being called Chinese as it is now. Imagine if I flipped shit at being called American because fuck you mate I'm from New York (or it'd be California these days I guess because of that semi-serious secession proposal).

>Again, it would be like Britbongs asserting
The British correctly asserted that at the beginning, and even when the revolution was over most of the colonists were distinctly British in their mannerisms. The biggest problem is that Americans made their own independent state, while Taiwanese...kind of did?

>While we give Israel whatever weapons they want,
If I might comment, this is simultaneously the most stupid continuing stance in recent US geopolitics and an unavoidable one.

>Taiwan is continuously lobbying the US for more substantial arms packages. If Taiwan is asking for our help and is willing to pay for it, should we just abandon them?
Well firstly, Taiwan is not an official ally of the US and in fact doesn't officially exist in the eyes of diplomacy. The very legality of selling weapons and defense systems to a country that doesn't exist is kind of suspect.
Second off, the question of "should we" broaches the question of "what are we trying to accomplish". Personally I think Meeting China Halfway by Goldstein and "Knowledge, Desire and Power in Global Politics" by Chengxin Pan are some good English-Language starting material on that. I simply don't see the long-term benefit of pissing China off by paying Taiwan and therefore radicalizing both sides. And it's not like China is blind, they know we're behind it, it hurts relationships and I seriously don't think we can give enough help to prevent them from being overrun. There's only so much we can sell to them.
>>
>>154825343
>I'm annoyed at people from Taiwan who explicitly insist on being called Taiwanese as explicitly seperate from Chinese.

They call themselves "Taiwanese" because most Americans aren't even aware that Taiwan is not officially independent. Just look at all the newspapers which had to give an explanation of the Taiwan issue following Trump's call to Tsai Yingwen. While mainlanders insist on Taiwan being referred to internationally as "Taiwan, China", most Americans differentiate between "China" and "Taiwan". So saying they're Taiwanese is a way to clarify they're from Taiwan rather than mainland China.

It's also not uncommon for people who have aspirations of de jure independence to differentiate themselves. Kurds will deny they're Turks, Uighurs and Tibetans will deny they're Chinese too, Ukrainians denied they were Russian prior to attaining independence, Catalans insist they're not Spanish, etc.

Also, saying that a person saying they're Taiwanese rather than Chinese is no different from a person saying they're a New Yorker rather than American in of itself is a denial of the political reality and ignoring that Taiwan is de facto independent while not de jure independent.
>>
>>154825514
It's a big difference to directly antagonize China than it is a bunch of backwards sand theocracies, the most important of which are already "valued allies" and don't care enough about Israel to attack them themselves (instead funding Palestinian/other local militias to do it for them).
>>
>>154825945
But again, Chinese refers to more than just the nationality. I don't insist they not use Taiwanese because it's extremely useful to know that X is a person from Taiwan instead of China, it changes a lot of potential topics. But I'm annoyed at, say, look at how this conversation started. OP asks why there aren't more "Chinese" characters in anime. Do we really think he exclusively meant "people under the flag of the Communist Party" or do we think he means "chinks" including people like say Chao Lingsheng?

>I give credit where due credit is due

I agree with everything you say here in this paragraph actually, and I too try to give credit where credit is due. However, I find Chinese arguments that Taiwan is a part of China to be inherently flawed. While it can be argued that Taiwanese are in denial of the reality that Taiwan is not de jure independent, I'm saying that Chinese arguments (and your arguments by extension) obscure the fact that Taiwan is de facto independent. So I guess the question is whether de jure or de facto independence matters more; I'm arguing the latter.

>Hey mate, it's ironic because when their universities literally have a course that is all but named "brainwashing", people tend not to listen.

I've seen Chinese make this argument before. In my experience, Chinese will say this right before they make the exact same arguments about Taiwan, Tibet, the CCP, Tiananmen, etc. that I've heard a million times before and I find easily refutable. Just because Chinese fall asleep during their Marxism courses doesn't mean they're still not being brainwashed. We need to get over this notion that one side is less brainwashed than the other; fucking everyone is brainwashed, all that matters is which side has the better arguments.

>The problem is their right to self determination has been exercised. They're a sovereign state - just because nobody recognizes them doesn't mean they haven't had self-determination.

I would say that the fact that Taiwan is prevented from modifying their constitution under threat of war, and is denied participation in international organizations indicates they're sovereignty and self-determination is being repressed. So Taiwanese saying they're Taiwanese can be viewed as an expression of the hope for de jure independence so Taiwan can have normal international relations like every other state.

That's a good point actually, but I think the thing to understand is the question of "Who is Chinese" is inherently tied to politics. And you have mainlanders argue that because Taiwanese are culturally Chinese, they shouldn't mind "reunifying" with the PRC. So it's not surprising that Taiwanese will assert they're only Taiwanese at every opportunity as a way to push back against mainlanders trying to justify annexing them.

>>154826439
>I'm saying that Chinese arguments (and your arguments by extension) obscure the fact that Taiwan is de facto independent
You see here's the key disjoint. I'm not talking about which state has control. The relevant point is that there is only one state, which necessarily means that people living there, while being Taiwanese, are also Chinese in the sense of what OP means - part of China-as-Civilization, instead of China-as-State. It's why I said it's like saying the Ming weren't Chinese, because OP doesn't mean "why are there so few Red Guards in anime", OP means "why are there so few people named Wang or Zhang in anime".

>Chinese will say this right before they make the exact same arguments about Taiwan, Tibet, the CCP, Tiananmen, etc. that I've heard a million times before and I find easily refutable.
I'm talking about ideological brainwashing, not lack of sound logical reasoning. I find that most chinks are less ideologically brainwashed, even as their arguments still lack real clarity.

>I would say that the fact that Taiwan is prevented from modifying their constitution under threat of war and is denied participation in international organizations indicates they're sovereignty and self-determination is being repressed.
Thing is that their sovereignty simply isn't a thing because nobody recognizes them and their self-determination is simply being overpowered. I wouldn't say they don't have those things, they're just not really in a position to use the due to geopolitics. I mean think of it from Beijing's point of view - allowing the kind of determination you speak of is essentially surrendering to the seperatist rebels. How can a sovereign nation bear to accede to that?

Still, the idea of reunification to me sounds like a reasonable prospect if you push for a seperate government. To my knowledge the actual CCP proposal is essentially status quo plus free trade plus dropping their purported sovereign status, I think they'd even have immunity to national laws for some period. For America especially, I think it's a great piece to have in consideration at least right now when we're lacking in really tasty carrots for China and trying to overcompensate with a metric assload of sticks at our own peril. I mean, it'd be like a trump card. Sanctions on Iran? Laying off the SCS for a while? Fuck up the North Koreans and negotiate unified Korea, even? You could get them to do damn near anything.

If the California secession movement ever becomes serious, it wouldn't surprise me if Californians started asserting they're Californian rather than American. I guess we can't agree on this, but I'm understanding of people who reject their internationally recognized national identity as a way of asserting the national identity they want to have. Rejecting official narratives is always a precondition of independence movements succeeding.

>Taiwan is not an official ally of the US and in fact doesn't officially exist in the eyes of diplomacy. The very legality of selling weapons and defense systems to a country that doesn't exist is kind of suspect.

You're not wrong that we don't officially recognize Taiwan, but the Taiwan Relations Act still requires the US to maintain unofficial relations with Taiwan and provide them with weapons so they can adequately defend themselves. So if a US president is refusing to sell adequate weapons to Taiwan, they're violating US law. As for international law, that means jack shit. States choose all the time to fund secession movements if they decide it's in their best interests. The US exists because France decided helping the Americans was in it's best interest. I personally feel that guaranteeing an independent Taiwan is more important to US interests than an Israel.

Well for one, I feel it's the duty of the US to prevent fellow democracies from being annexed. Two, I feel Chinese control of Taiwan could threaten US territory in the Pacific. Three, a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would be devastating to our economy, regardless of who wins.

I feel there's a growing thinking among mainlanders that if China decided to invade Taiwan, the US wouldn't intervene. Selling Taiwan nothing but junk send the message that the US won't defend Taiwan if China one day becomes too impatient with how slow "peaceful reunification" is taking. So while the US shouldn't do something blatantly aggressive like installing THAAD or US military bases on Taiwan, I feel sellling Taiwan the same kind of military tech we sell Israel, and giving them tech they've specifically asked for (like F-35s and helping them to design new dorsal submarines) would send China a message that they wouldn't get away with an invasion.

Israel is incredibly important to American geopolitics because it's basically the only foothold left in the extremely fucking hostile mideast. Taiwan is also a foothold of sorts, but in addition to the reasons and arguments in the books I recommeneded (there's plenty of others of course), Taiwan is sensitive strategically for China. The presence of American weaponry on Taiwan and American ships patrolling in the South China Sea is analagous to Chinese weapons in Cuba and Chinese carriers in the Gulf. It's not really hard to see why they'd be extremely fucking butthurt about continuing and increasing manuevers of the sort.

>US interests
What exactly does the US gain from an independent Taiwan that's increasingly radicalized and by doing so radicalize China itself towards hostility with the US? Most of China's current animosity towards the "west" is directly caused by said "west" with incidents like Belgrade, the 2001 spyplane, and so on.

>Two, I feel Chinese control of Taiwan could threaten US territory in the Pacific
I disagree. While it threatens US hegemony in the Pacific I believe that US hegemony in the Pacific is simply impossible - and undesireable - in the face of a resurgent China and slowing awakening India and SEA. Attempts to preserve it will ultimately prove to be simply destabilizing instead of the other way around. As the 'mature' country in Kissinger's eyes, we should know when - and where - to step down, and where to take the hard line. By giving China room instead of increasingly caging it in like Obama has done in his second term it's easier to prevent conflict. This doesn't mean appeasement, mind you, any more than the RMB being added to the SDR was appeasement. It simply stands to reason that China, being a global power and certainly dominant in East Asia, should be allowed some form of hegemony - not total, but not the near-nothing it is now - over the area instead of stubbornly trying to control those affairs from half a world away. In fact, while Japan is friendly-ish with the states I believe it's actually in everyone's best interests that they become friendly with China also (as impossible as that might sound), because then all the major players in the area will be more or less okay with each other.

>Three, a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would be devastating to our economy, regardless of who wins.
But only if we intervene, which we don't have to and likely will not as long as China finishes it as fast as they're aiming to.

>would send China a message that they wouldn't get away with an invasion.
At the same time though, it would make the mainland worried that the US is pivoting towards complete independence and they might paradoxically speed up their plans. If we were to relax a little, perhaps they'd go with their traditional idea of 'slow' unification. I seriously doubt that China WANTS to go to war, if they can avoid it.

Since I emphasize de facto independence rather than de jure independence more, I go by the definition of a state according to the Montevideo Convention. The PRC and ROC can be thought of as separate states while both are part of Chinese civilization (the ROC still conducts international relations even if it has limited recognition). So while you have a point that Taiwanese should be thought of as Chinese in cultural contexts such as anime, Taiwanese saying they're Taiwanese isn't necessarily a denial of the fact that they are currently nationals of the ROC (whose territory is currently 99% Taiwan).

>I'm talking about ideological brainwashing, not lack of sound logical reasoning.

Imo, simplistic nationalist narratives such as "Taiwan has been a part of China since ancient times and will inevitably reunify" can be considered a form of ideological brainwashing. All nationalism is is constructed narratives really.

>I mean think of it from Beijing's point of view - allowing the kind of determination you speak of is essentially surrendering to the seperatist rebels. How can a sovereign nation bear to accede to that?

Of course it makes sense from Beijing's point of view. But we're not Chinese so why should we give a shit about what mainlanders want over what the Taiwanese want? States ignore what other states want all the time.

First off, how the CCP is gradually interfering more and more in Hong Kong shows that the CCP can't be trusted to not interfere in Taiwan.

Second, this is a fundamental misunderstanding of how states think. Small states generally do whatever they can to avoid being annexed by larger states. Why should Taiwan agree to be annexed by the PRC when they can continue the status quo and prevent the PRC from interfering in their domestic politics like they do in Hong Kong?

If the Arabs drove the Jews into the sea the next day, would the Arabs be able to project power from Palestine in a way that threatens the US? Why should we give a shit about the Middle East when everything the US does there only makes things worse, and we're gradually weaning ourselves off oil? East Asia will continue to grow in importance while the Middle East will become irrelevant. At least we can point to a few examples of where US intervention in East Asia made life better for people there such as WWII, South Korea, and Taiwan. And I still say Taiwan is a far more important foothold than Israel and China could threaten the US from Taiwan far more than Arabs ever could.

>Taiwan is also a foothold of sorts, but in addition to the reasons and arguments in the books I recommeneded (there's plenty of others of course), Taiwan is sensitive strategically for China.

By telling them to fuck off because they're being too aggressive and construing China as an actual threat to the US (it isn't), you are slowly making China more aggressive and threatening. It's not 'whatever they want', that's the point. There are some hegemonies you can't maintain. The correct course of action to is yield those hegemonies smoothly instead of trying to fight for them.

Taiwan is still a major trading partner of the US, and an invasion of Taiwan would destroy the Taiwanese economy just like invasions tend to do. The destruction of the Taiwanese economy would also affect all the Taiwanese businesses on the mainland, which in turn will affect the larger Chinese economy. War will be bad for us even if we don't intervene.

Also, you're assuming the US wouldn't have time to intervene. Most estimates say that the Taiwan could probably hold out for a month without US intervention, and that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could still cause immense casualties to the PLA.

The CCP will go to war if millions of screaming Chinese nationalists threaten to overthrow the government if "unification" is not accomplished. I think that as long as the US continues to declare that we still support the One-China policy and that we will not defend Taiwan if they make any moves to formal independence, that will indicate to China that we are not moving towards supporting Taiwanese independence.

The Obama administration refused to supply Taiwan with adequate arms, and the result is that Chinese now think we have no backbone and will roll-over in the event of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. I believe that the Chinese believing they can get away with an invasion with little casualties is far more dangerous than the Chinese believing that the US will defend Taiwan in the event of an invasion.

"Incredible freedom compared to the mainland" is an incredibly low standard. Hong Kongers had been demanding the right to choose Chief Executive nominees for years, and the CCP continuously refused so that they could have a puppet in Hong Kong. While the tactics of the Umbrella protestors can be questioned, saying the protests did not come from legitimate frustration is bullshit. Occupy Central had been threatened for over a year in response to the CCP refusing to compromise, it wasn't a sudden event.

And I agree the US should accede hegemony in some aspects such as allowing China control of the SCS, allowing them to set-up the Asian Infrastructure Bank, and allowing them to fund infrastructure projects such as One Belt, One Road. I don't agree that allowing the PRC to annex Taiwan is something we have to do though. Besides the fact that Taiwan is actually quite important geopolitically, I think sending the message to a rising power that they have a blank check for expansionism will bite us in the ass like it did for Germany and Japan. And while I agree with Trump that allies such as Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, and Taiwan should increase their defense budgets, we can't just abandon treaty allies that we have maintained for decades without completely destroying US credibility in the process.

I think mainland Chinese can do so relatively easily. I'm a white guy who learned simplified and while I can kinda read traditional, it's a pain in the ass to do. So I have a browser extension which automatically converts sites in traditional Chinese to simplified.
>>
>>154823875
it's a dead giveaway for me that I'm an ABC because I read both but when I write I default to traditional.

You should learn traditional chinese instead. Much more meaningful and pleasing to the eyes.

I actually can't think of any major Chinese characters that are evil. They're usually some kung fu stereotype and are supporting characters as opposed to antagonists.

Traditional characters are only pleasing to the eye when written with brush and ink for calligraphy, they look like shit in all other contexts.

Not to mention a lot of simplified characters are just cursive forms of characters that had been in use for centuries. I find they still have a lot of meaning and are beautiful in their simplicity and neatness.

You must be incredibly ignorant if you think that the German-Japanese connection is something that started or stopped to exist with WW2. There isnt a group of foreigners that the Japanese respect more than the Germans. They have a cultural connection that goes way beyond most other nations. Their entire way of living is incredibly similar as well.

It was also barely mentioned by the CCP until Reform and Opening Up began since Chinese history under Mao focused on class struggle rather than Chinese nationalism. The Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall wasn't built until 1985, and I have a buddy from Nanjing who says that his parents never heard the massacre mentioned once during the Mao era.

Japan main relations prior to WW2 were with the UK(and later the US), France and Netherlands

They respected Germans so much that it didn't bother them one bit to take over german territories in China and the pacific in WW1.

Only to lose it all in WW2 by siding with sore losers for no other reasons than the fear of the USSR.

Commie is the biggest bitch ever, with PoC's military power they still got no balls to claim Mongolia and other territories that were used to be within the Qing Dynasty boundary.

But an actual Guatemalan would work harder than a mexican even though they usually do have darker skin, and even to say to you that they want to show you their homeland.
A Mexican does none of that because there is nothing in Mexico that looks nice or they are actually from El Salvador, which is much worse.

That's fucking bullshit you dumb wumao.
John H. D. Rabe, chairman of the International Committee of Nanking Safety Zone, sent a letter representing the Committee in which he wrote “We come to thank you for the fine way your artillery spared the Safety Zone and to establish contact with you for future plans for care of Chinese civilians in the Zone.”
(IMTFE , Exhibit No.323 = Prosecution Exhibit No.1744, Court Reporter's Transcript, No. 210.)

The text below is excerpt from diary and private papers written by Dr. James H. McCallum, the doctor of Nanking University Hospital. (Exhibit No. 309 = Prosecution Exhibit No. 246). This was read by Kiyoshi Ito, the defense attorney of General Matsui in the defense plea. (IMTFE Transcript No. 210)
Plus excerpts from a diary and notes kept by Dr. James McCallum, a physician associated with the Jinling University Hospital, which were read at the Tokyo Trials by Kiyoshi Ito, General Matsui Iwane's attorney, during the presentation of Matsui's defense. They describe acts of kindness performed by Japanese soldiers.
Dr.James Henry McCallum

1. We have had some very pleasant Japanese who have treated us with courtesy and respect (December 29, 1937).
Occasionally have I seen a Japanese helping some Chinese, or picking up a Chinese baby to play with it (December 29, 1937).

2. Today I saw crowds of people flocking across Chung Shan [Zhongshan] Road out of the Zone. They came back later carrying rice which was being distributed by the Japanese from the Executive Yuan Examination Yuan (December 31, 1937).

Even Rev. John G. Magee who hated Japan said “the Safety Zone might have been a heaven for refugees” (refer “The Rape of Nanking”, page 84, by Ikuhiko Hata) and Dr. Lewis S. C. Smythe also described “the fact that practically no burning occurred within the zone was a further advantage” and “most of the residents gathered in the area.”
