Concerning your insights about Miyazaki movies, I wholeheartedly agree! I've been in Japan for a semester recently and like most westerners, who are interested in Japanese pop culture, my image of Japan has mainly been formed through media representation of it. And that representation, (magazines, TV news and TV entertainment) is made up of a majority of light-skinned Japanese people. However, when you actually go to that country, you encounter a rich variety of skintones. It's... interesting.
