So after watching anime for many years, I finally realised that other than Japan and all these alternate worlds, anime is hardly ever set in foreign countries.
So guys and girls, can you list some anime set in America?
Off the top of my head, the only ones I can remember is Baccano!

Gunsmith Cats
Major Season 5 & 6 (Goro spends most of his time in US)
Chrono Crusade
Ex-Driver the Movie
Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari (Little Women)
Huckleberry Finn Monogatari (Huckleberry Finn)

There are tons of anime with America as a secondary setting but writing it will be too much of a hassle. Everything that you see in that list above is set in America(main setting)

EDIT 1: Demonbane. Since it is based on H.P. Lovecraft's work, it is somewhere in Massachusetts.

As everyone has mentioned there is Baccano! (One of my favorites)
besides that the only other thing that comes to mind is Eden of the East but it only started in America and was only there for first episode but i did like how it showed the white house and how all the people there spoke English

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Chrono Crusade. Also the vast majority of Eden of the East: The King of Eden takes place in the US, mostly New York.

I think "A Wind Named Amnesia" takes place in the US. I'm reading the novel and it does anyway so the movie should too.
