Black Characters In Anime.
Posted 8/4/08
the only ones i've come across are those random side characters, usually thugs or gangsters. i do recall one guest appearance in full metal alchemist with the automail legs. there's also some in jungle itsumo hale nochi and some coloured people in khr, not african but just coloured [cervello, levi A than, etc] a;so in samurai champloo theres one of the main characters who is coloured

im not sure why mangakas dont have any black characters but it should mostly be because there aren't many black people in Japan.

The problem is people who make anime tend not to be good enough at writing for black people (who they generally know few of) to make one that isn't at least partially offensive or stereotyped, or no different in terms of personality from every other race of characters, which is next to impossible in most settings due to the fact that racism DOES exist within the context of their own stories.

Writing for minorities or alien cultures (in Japan, anyways) in general is a very tough balancing act, and anyone who does so successfully should be applauded.


I don't know, I don't think it should require knowing a lot of black people. People are people, all you have to do to have a black character is animate it that way. There are black people who have all different kind of personalities so really the possibility is only limited to what kind of character the creator wants to make.
