GamingThread Japan has Splatoon 2 plushies made by Sanrio that include a whitewashed Marina

is the colour wrong ? Yes Was it done so intentionally? We don’t know Why are people assuming it was done in bad faith? These are cheap plushies from a claw machine. This imo is akin to getting a pikachu toy that’s the wrong tone of yellow. Come on, it’s not as deep as it’s being made out to be. Especially considering the official art from Nintendo for splatfests is consistently in line with her character design. Tbh I have no sword in this battle, just don’t like the assumption it was done with the intent to white wash her when that doesn’t even make sense (white Marina looks like shit).
