Asians in general will get incensed when you guess their ethnicity - and guess wrong. And rightfully so, you'd probably get pissed off if someone mistook you as a Canadian, right? "All look alike" is a notorious and racist falsehood - because while clearly, no two individuals do look alike, there's no real, cut and dry differences between most East Asian ethnic groups. It's something that a lot of Asians swear up and down isn't true, but it totally is. If people say they can tell the difference, and do so, it's usually because of culturally unique signifiers like style of clothing, makeup, mannerisms, or language. But there's nothing inherently in a Han-Chinese person that makes them look vastly different from a Japanese person or a Korean person. One of my best Japanese History professors - a South Korean man, fluent in Japanese - used to tell us about how he would regularly get mistaken as Japanese by the vast majority of Japanese people he'd come across because he looks Japanese and he speaks it perfectly. There's no difference.

Edit: Also, you totally fell onto that website thanks to Kotaku, didn't you.

Here's something that's awful and unrelated:

Kotaku by way of Fark I think.

I thought it was kind of disingenuous including some peeps in that quiz that looked like they were pretty obviously from mixed ancestry. To me anyways. Tho I only got 2 right, so I'm clearly not very good at this.

If someone mistook me for a Canadian I would either A. laugh and correct them, or B. play along, were I in one of the many US-intolerant countries of the world. The only time I could see this being a factor is if I were IN Canada and we both know that's never going to fucking happen.

Here's the thing though about East Asians that most East Asians don't even realize - the amount of cross-breeding between ethnic groups historically was extremely high. There are all kinds of points in history where Chinese people had huge population diasporas all around East Asia, and the same is true of Koreans as well. The popular view of Asian countries are ones of isolationist histories, but that's something relatively recent in the grand scheme of things (only a few hundred years back, compared to thousands of years of history). There are long stretches of history where Japanese and Korean families intermarried in high-society because it was the vogue thing to do, or points where Chinese immigrants, en masse, colonized the Japanese frontier along side Japanese people and invariably intermarried. And then there's sticky issues like how Japan imported hundreds of thousands of Koreans to work as laborers in Japan before and during WWII - and a lot of them chose to stay after the war. Or issues like how, as a matter of statistics, there has to be millions of Chinese with Japanese genes running about and they don't even know it because of the wide-spread cases of war-atrocities and the employment of 'comfort women'. Korea was a vassal state of China for centuries and so thoroughly integrated Chinese culture and immigrants that there are stretches of history where Korean culture (especially high-culture of the rich/powerful) is indistinguishable from Chinese. Japanese families settled down in Manchuria and Korea before WWII; Japanese soldiers invaded pillaged, and raped Korea for a good decade during the end of the 16th century, etc, etc. The ethnic and genetic identities of each of these groups are hardly 'pure'.

The long-running Japanese Christian newspaper Christ Weekly has introduced a new comic strip, Puritan, which represents Christianity's various sects as people. While details are scarce thus far, the main character, "Puritan" — a bespectacled middle school student — and her older brother, Kaikakuha-kun ("Reformed Church"), have been introduced.

This would actually be amazing if it stayed true to history, and you started to see some characters go full-yandere on each other, ending on a boat. Unfortunately, it'll be like Hetalia where everyone is BFFs and you have Baptists hanging out with Roman Catholics hanging out with Ethiopian Coptics, going to the beach or sharing some 'skinship' at an onsen. :lol:

It looks like it's a 4-koma. I wouldn't expect anything resembling a long-running plot from them, probably just various skits.
