If you're a fan of anime the issue of Japanese manga or anime characters looking white may have been introduced to you already. Anime studios are trying to draw what is most efficient and tells the store in the most easy to understand way. They don't worry about whether or not a character looks white or asian, they worry about whether or not each character represents their role in an efficient and entertaining way.

When we see characters, we often try to connect them to what we know, naturally, many of us grew up around people who look just like us. When we see someone slightly different, a lot of times, we'll blur those lines. Anime, manga etc make good examples.

Long story short, it doesn't matter what you think the characters look like, white, Japanese or otherwise. What matters is that you understood the story and want to see more.
