Although we love Japan, it is undeniable that it is a country with very particular ideas, many of which can be very controversial and the subject of discussion in the West. For this reason, and with the increase in the popularity of anime around the world, some fans have already expressed their concern that the production companies begin to censor their works for fear of complaints from other countries. However, a recognized industry personality assures that this is not the case.
What happens is that Gigguk, a popular content creator who specializes in anime and Japanese culture, uploaded a video to his YouTube channel visiting the prestigious animation studio JCSTAFF, which was behind high-profile productions such as Hi Score Girl and the second season of One Punch Man.

There, Gigguk had the opportunity to discuss various topics with Atsushi Fujishiro, renowned producer of One Punch Man Y Food Wars. Without a doubt, the moment that most attracted the attention of the video was when it was discussed about the influence that the opinions of Western fans have on the way anime is created in Japan.
Atsushi Fujishiro: We don’t make changes for the sake of foreigners
Thus, Gigguk asked Atsushi Fujishiro if they take into account the opinions of foreign fans for the development of new animation projects, to which the producer stated that Western complaints do not cause major changes in the way they work or in style.
“When I think about it, the Japanese animation style is always well received abroad. So instead of changing things overseas, we just stick with our own style. While we are aware of their opinions, we generally do not make changes for the sake of foreigners, ”Atsushi Fujishiro commented.

It is certainly interesting to discover that, at least in the case of JCSTAFF, the opinions of Western fans have no bearing on the production of their projects. Of course, we do not know if this scenario is repeated in other animation houses, as well as in the manga and video game industry.
But tell us, what do you think of this situation? Do you think it is okay for production companies not to take into account the opinions of foreigners? Let us read you in the comments.
