I don’t think some people understand how important a show like taz is for a lot of people.
Because it’s an audio thing and gives the ability for listeners to see the characters pretty much how they would like, a lot of people have been able to get a sense of representation.
I’ve seen a bunch of artists really go places with these designs for the characters. There’s even some fandom established characters of color and that’s really fun and great to see! The support and love for black Anguses really lifts my spirts because people are seeing this adorable and brilliant child prodigy as a black boy. Or like how the majority of the fandom see Kravitz, described as a strikingly handsome and elegant man, as a black person with beautiful dark skin. Or a brown Magnus or fat Taako! That’s great and wonderful to see!!
But also other things come out of this. Characters who are the “villians” of their arcs have been seen as darker skinned poc and a lack of varying body sizes and races for the main characters.
And I’m capital NOT trying to “dictate” how ppl design the characters (unless it’s someone like The Director who’s canonically has dark skin and should not be whitewashed ever) or force people to change all their designs. This is a fun show and creating content should be fun too! I would just like it if people were more aware on how certain choices they make can affect the viewers of said content, those of different body sizes and races, who rarely see themselves represented in many things in the first place and when there’s the ability to have that in something, others seem to easily resort to the “status quo”.
