tomoyo-hime...Su is not black she is indian <.< well probably the reason you dont see much black people in anime is that there isn't much of them in Japan to relate to and use in anime. You would usually see asian ppl in anime with a variation of dye hair..and its to be expected since Japan is asian country. Maybe if more black ppl went to japan and make an influence on their society then you might see more of them used in anime...

I forgot about Eureka seven, good call, maybe its just a cultural thing, I mean not to many English action cartoons have main characters being black either. Most black characters are under the radar.

Besides the Boondocks, Static Shock, trying to think of more but not a whole lot where the main character was black and the show lasted longer than a season.

Boondocks has anime style elements in it too, which is awesome not to mention the commentary on American Culture specifically Black American culture, Arron McGruder is a genius. That MLK episode was awesome.

Personally I wouldn't really know what race an anime character is unless they say so.

cmoon ppl!! there was "afro samurai" a whole show starring two main black characters. and they had one of the best black actors about doin the dubbs in the english version .."samuel l. jakson" the japanese arent racist its just that there are no blacks in japan so for marketing value they cant really cater for them, nor are there any black anime artists ..and black fans are quit scarce as well..but it would be nice to see more multiculturalism in anime...although the fact that its so predominently japanese and set in its ways is what makes it appeal to all foreigners..
and im black by the way and am a die hard anime fan....even hate dubbs..

wow... this thread...

anyway, the majority of Japanese people learn about our culture from our media (mtv, hollywood), the way we learn about them from theirs...

They think everyone in the US carries a gun.

Most Japanese people are under the notion that indian people are peasants, towelheaded snakecharmers who all can make curry.

They're head over heels with pride when someone japanese gets called funky or soulful by a black person.

It's all based on stereotypes.

Someone with Dark skin in anime could just be from a coastal beach area in Japan.
