"Back in 2010, blogger Julian Abagond asserted, "The Japanese see anime characters as being Japanese. It is Americans who think they are white." Largely, I agree with this. When Japanese see anime characters, they think they are Japanese—even if they have purple hair or blond hair—or they don't even think about it that deeply. It's often only when the characters have exaggerated Western figures or speak goofy Japanese that viewers are clued in that they are looking at a non-Japanese character." This is from an article by Brian Ashcraft

In the japanese culture pale faces were the more 'Popular' look for society. An example would be the geisha look.

I beg to differ. Anime is made as per the artists choices and they want to distinguish their character or implied side character. Not all characters have the same type of characterizations. A famous example would be Bleach Anime. The lead has orange hair which was done so to make him stand out than others.
