Should more anime series have international settings?

Its just a thought. Some might not be familiar with other foreign countries yet its nice to simply wonder.

Majority of the anime series are set in Japan with some of the same foreign countries. Even though its set in another country outside of Japan, there will sometimes be a Japanese person present there. There aren't many focusing on other cultures, traditions, and lifestyle of people from other countries.

Would you watch an anime series set in another country dealing a character born from said country going through the motions of life the same way the characters do in Japan? Is it better to have a series easy to relate to far as living in another country? Can you really watch an anime series that caters to people living in other countries outside of Japan?

Example:

If an anime is set in Venezuela(I was random) dealing with a Venezuelan character dealing with same things as other characters you see in anime set in Japan. Would you want to relate to that character if your born from that country?

I'm just curious to know.

List a country(preferably the country you're born) then explain everything else in detail. You don't have to tell me why it probably won't work just think about what it would be like. Any country from any continent doesn't matter to me as long as its not Japan.

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

Death Note took place between Japan and the U.S and it turned out great. So yeah, I do think it should expand for I think it would be a lot more interesting.

The overwhelming majority (if not all) of El Cazador de la Bruja was set in Mexico.

Yes.

The original Mobile Suit Gundam stared a Canadian Kid living in Space, with a Rival born in space(spacinoid), doing battle against Space-Nazi with the Allied Earth Federation. The only Japanese kid in the cast was the "background kid you didn't really like" character.

G Fighter was the first Gundam series to have a Japanese protagonist.

From what I've seen of Japan, they don't like China, Korea, anybody within shooting distance of their country.

The last time I saw Chinese people in an Anime, it was Sword of the Stranger, and those Chinese people looked American, and randomly murdered people for the Evlulz.

Don't forget Revi from Black lagoon was chinese (new york american chinese), and not exactly a sunshine past with that. Lotsa harsh words for Balalaika's past too.

I don't mind foreign settings myself. Though I do prefer it when it actually has a proper feel of it. There are shows that have attempted america and europe then ended up with just their architecture and some blond hair, blue eyed traditional anime character. The important part to duplicating a foreign locale is to also attempt to duplicate it's culture.

Example, this show, the creators went to location, photographed everything important and talked with people who have the roles of all the characters to maximize authenticity! Though the lead characters were still quite traditional. Taking into account when it was made, still not bad.

Only three episode OVA, but good manga!
