because it is japanese styled art that's where it originated from. i think anyone can make an anime in tribute to that,, and im pretty sure people already have. your ethnicity or nationality shouldn't prevent you from doing something,, and that applies everywhere. if you want to make an anime go for it :))
this was years ago but during middle school and a lil into high school i was obsessed with fairy tail. the magic competition arc or whatever? the end of that when ultear left that note? cue ugly sobbing on the floor. that scene broke me.
more recent but not as dramatic, recently got into houseki no kuni and when they popped up i immediately fell in love with antarcticite. oh god the scene where they broke and were taken away. my heart. ooooh my poor heart
