Just have to look

Blassreitlier,Black Lagoon,Chrono Crusade, Jorgumand.Unbreakable Machine Doll,Trinty Blood,GoSick,Hellsing,Gunslinger Girl,Fulmetal Alchemist

Many in England, Italy

Many space anime



There isn't enough! Some of those shows are set in the same country. How many anime shows you know where the country is Venezuela or some OTHER country?


I am not being rude but anime has just recently been able to stream into some Spanish language countries!

BTW Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Her and the Lovelace family set in Venezuela EPS 25 -29

Jinki: Extend an anime that takes place in Venezuela the majority. of it! Takes place in The Grand Savanna

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinki:_Extend

Venezuela character in Hetalia Bolivian born

So again watch even more anime or research and they are there!

Jorgumand goes everywhere Balkans,Europe South America Africa,Indonesia,Iraq , Cuba Caucasus,England ,Greece,Soviet Union, Solomon Islands,Egypt,Bahamas,Langley VA, Azerbaijan

I agree with this. I mean Japan is nice but I want to see other countries too.

That happens sometimes but I hardly see any anime series set in actual China. I'm not even sure about Korea.
I think so.

I can't think of any set in Korea at the moment, but I believe Kingdom is set in China, as was most of Night Raid 1931.

I like the idea of an Anime that takes place on a global scale like Code Geass did or Digimon attempted to do in the 2nd season. Reboot of Captain Planet anyone?

As long as it's dubbed in English or they are using Translation Convention. Meaning that if they are speaking Japanese we are to understand that it's because it's been made in Japan despite being set in another country (like how there are seemingly thousands of alien species who speak fluent English in science fiction) not that ALL these Jamaicans in Jamaica are all actually fluent in Japanese. I'd like shows like that more if they were in English since at the very least if they don't use any of the words in the language of that country at least more often than not I'd be able to hear accents that I can never hear in Japanese, it doesn't make it seem more authentic, in fact it probably makes it less, but it gives me an audible clue as to what language this character speaks. Of course all that being said, if only one language IS actually spoken in the whole show then I'd rather not have any accents no matter what language it was dubbed in.

Interesting how a show having a setting outside of Japan seems to be depend on what genre it is.

Action-adventure, science fiction and fantasy - most likely

Romance and slice-of-life - not so much

Anime and Manga should stay true to themselves.
There is no need to shift anything because of the opinions of those gaijin-tachi
