Should we assume a culture neutral perspective when asking a question or it's fine to assume Anime & Manga SE is written mainly from foreigners and consequently all question are asked in a non-Japanese cultural perspective?
This issue started to bugs me from What differentiates anime from regular cartoons, where "regular" stands for non-anime. Answers to that question clarify how limited that point of view is because, by a Japanese point of view, "regular cartoons" are anime, but the question "foreigner" perspective is still intact.
Three options are available, here a very rough list:
- Japanese perspective: because anime are from Japan (producer perspective)
- Foreigner perspective: because Anime & Manga SE is written in English mainly for a foreign audience (foreigner watcher perspective)
- Neutral perspective: because objectivity and neutrality are major constraints.
Supposing neutral perspective is adopted, should questions have to be rewritten to adapt to that perspective?
