"This is an east asian media trope only."

What? Do you mean to tell me that western works can't draw droopy eyes for the sake of submissive characterization? Where's the trope for that?

It seems completely and utterly arbitrary to exclude non-japanese works and characters from this list. If there are no western examples, then the disclaimer is pointless, as there are none to add. If there are western examples, it hardly makes sense to exclude them from addition to this easily identifiable and universally understood trope.

I don't know how to start a page action or anything, and I'm not entirely sure what this situation warrants. I'm not sure if I can just remove the disclaimer, or if some more bureaucratic footwork is necessary.

EDIT: I am going to remove the Eastern Asia disclaimer. I mean, geez, there's already a "western animation" folder. Same with Tareme Eyes.

I added it back in, after taking it to Repair Shop and getting an unintuitive answer.

As odd as a coincidence as it may be I don't think Kyou Fujibayashi can be justified as an expy of Kagami seeing as how Clannad and Lucky Star debuted (as a visual novel and manga) in the same year and their character designs were most likely created prior to knowledge of the other's existence. It stretches the imagination almost to breaking to think the developers of Clannad rushed to change the Fujibayashi twins to look like the Hiiragi twins.

I'll point it out but I'll leave it alone for now, I always reserve the right to be wrong, after all I don't know the intent of the artists and I suppose it could be an individual's interpretation of Expy.
