I wanna say the font change has something to do with libreoffice changing their default font to the awful liberation serif font recently, but it's probably just wikipedia taking their retarded image license guidelines to the logical conclusion

Mukokuseki (Japanese: 無国籍; "statelessness") is the use of ambiguous racial features of characters in Japanese culture. This can be seen more readily in later anime in the fantasy and mecha genres, where characters are given Kabuki-like unnatural hair colors (for example white, red, pink, or blue hair), enlarged eyes, or dysmorphic humanoid bodies (such as Tetsuo and the Espers in Akira).

except black people, there are definitely black people and they definitely have some watermelon-rear end-eating lips

its not no race, they're drawing japanese people.

when they want to draw western-white people they tend to give them exaggerated different hair and facial features.

its just that white people assume that japanese people have to look a whole lot different from them therefore the anime people are meant to be generic...

do some googling for white people in anime or something, you'll find some jew-rear end looking motherfuckers

either that or craggy and angular

Uguisu no fun (Japanese: 鶯の糞) (also called the "Geisha Facial"[1]), which literally means “nightingale feces” in Japanese, refers to the excrement (fun) produced by a particular nightingale called the Japanese bush warbler (Cettia diphone) (uguisu).[1] The droppings, the use of which was introduced to Japan by Koreans, have been used in facials since ancient Japanese times.[1]
