Ever notice how some anime shows have hints/signs that it's based off a European country, some event, or a certain town/city in said country? I'm talking about those fictional countries that either takes place in Europe or another world. Some shows have the same country shown plenty of times than some others. Which ones have you seen like that? List the name of the anime series, European country, and the event as well[I'll even take folklore, mythology, fairy tales, and etc too.]

My Turn



That is all I can think of honestly.

Let me know if a thread like this exist or not.
Thank a bunches.

Gosick. The entire show is based in a fake European country and is set right after World War 1.

Kikki's Delivery Service. I've always thought it looked like Holland.

Although Samurai Champloo is set in Japan, I remember an episode where a Dutch man went there and the series shown Holland[ I believe].

Spice and Wolf certainly seemed to have a European setting. Lot's of grasslands and forests dotted with small townships and larger walled cities; maybe with medieval era influences. They discussed the economic interrelationships between other countries but never mentioned any names, except for individual towns. They don't even identify religion, they just say "the Church" or "Pagan".

Gunslinger Girl, which was set in Italy.

*Oh, yeah--Gosick was set in Saubure, a fictional country that actually reminded me a lot of France. One of my favorite recent anime series.

They actually go to real England, too, at the end of the original series and in the movie.
