There's more gay people in Japan than there are black people both in real life and in fictional media. There wouldn't be much demand for that. Although who knows if anyone is actually going to be using this consultation service either.

You can have both…also racism in Japan is not limited to blacks they’re not to fond of Brazilians, Koreans, & Chinese. Also I think you mean intentionally and unintentionally.

Since the production company collaborates with a Chinese-based CG studio, hopefully some of that LGBTQ sensitivity can seep over into China.

Would that not be xenophobia, they are all part of the same ethnicity East Asian after all.

Japan certainly has a xenophobia problem. There were once signs on some restaurants saying they were only admitting Japanese patrons. I mean they also said "Please" on them so at least they were polite about it.

yes, Japan has a long history of discrimination against Chinese and Koreans (many of whom are multi-generational residents of Japan), but the important part here is how it's not actually racist lol

Yes but you're still hating people because of how different they are from you which can within a specific context be considered racist also self hating racism is a thing.
