CHARACTERS OF COLOR IN ANIME

 

image

This can be a touchy subject for some. But I want to look at it in a different light. Lately, in the newer anime I’ve been watching, I have seen some diversity. There has been a few characters of color. I, myself as person of color am pretty happy to see this.

Some newer shows I have seen ethnic characters are Dimension W, Food Wars, Hundred and Haven’t you heard I’m Sakamoto. They may not have major roles but they are there.

BELOW ARE SOME OF MY FAVS:

 

MICHIKO AND HATCHIN

MICHIKO MALANDRO

image

ATSUKO JACKSONΒ 

These two ladies were so bad ass. I like their raunchy and don’t give a crap kind of attitude. There rivalry was so good.

 

BLACK LAGOON

DUTCHΒ 

Dutch is such a cool character. Everything about him screamed cool. Also he can bust some guns too.

 

BLACK BUTLER (KUROSHITSUJI)

PRINCE SŌMA ASMAN KADAR

AGNIΒ 

These two as a duo was hilarious. Especially how dumb Prince Sōma was. Agni was super strong and I liked when he helped Sebastian out.

DURARARA

SIMON

I liked Simon a lot. He was a gentle giant. All he wanted was for people to come to his restaurant. But don’t get on his bad side. He will def whoop butt.

AH MY GODDESS

URDΒ 

Urd is gorgeous and graceful. There is nothing wrong with her.

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST

image

SCAR

He was like literally one of the baddest enemies in Fullmetal. He was tough and strong that it was scary. In fact he was pretty much scary.

BLEACH

YORUICHI SHIHŌIN

Yoruichi is just the queen. She is one of my favs in Bleach. She can totally kick ass. Her legs are amazing too. Love her!

 

 

Now of course this is not a list of all the anime characters of color but I did want to point out a few.

Hope you enjoyed. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    Great list. Personally, I think anime characters in different skin are pretty cool. When I see them, they appear tough. I really like Yoruichi, Simon, Micihiko, Scar and the three from Dimension W.

    As a black male I love seeing characters of color but I think it’s excusable for them to not have them if the show if it takes place in Japan due to the lack of diversity, but if the show happens in a place such as the US, UK, or a fictional place like the location in Gangsta or Black Lagoon then it makes more sense to have some diversity.

      I liked this anime.its of course geared towards an older crowd because of the context of the story. It’s not like a Shounen type show which usually gets bigger audiences. It did show Brazil in kind of a true light though.
