Heroman comes to mind, it had what I thought to be a good representation of West Coast U.S. The show was cliche but I enjoyed it and I'd like to see more anime set in the U.S.

For me it depends on the genra. I find myself enjoying action anime more when their set in countries other then japan I.E(Black Lagoon, Michiko To Hatchin, El Cazadore De La Bruja).

Genre doesn't matter to me as long as it in another country other than Japan and its anime.
I enjoyed those shows though.

Why not?


Because its the thing we love, right? I don't wanna have the taste of my chocolat changed, because some guys from the other side of the world believe it must taste different. Simply that reason. If they target the international market, .. fine. But I want anime stay anime and not become cartoonish (*yuck*) e.g.

The anime style won't change its just the locations within the anime that need to change.

There is Rose Of Versailles which is set in France, it's a good anime, check it out and there is also Baccano which is set in America during the 1930's gangster times.
Just to name two, I'm sure there are more.

I wouldn't mind it so long as all the dubbing is done in Japanese. There is literally nothing worse than Japanese VA's doing English in an anime. It just sounds awful. I hate it when Asian entertainment is done in English. It just doesn't sound as natural as speaking in their own native language. I feel that way about movies, TV shows and music, too. Of course, this doesn't apply to those who grew up speaking English and sound natural. Just those who have English as a second language and you can tell by the inflection that it's not the customary language they use. I suppose it's how they would probably feel if an American went to Japan and started doing dub work in Japanese. Besides, Japanese dialect is far nicer to listen to than English. My favorite language besides French.

Just a few examples (Not including fantasy worlds, I presume?):

Space Brothers, at least the part I'm on right now, is taking place in Houston, TX.
Black Lagoon takes place in Thailand
Michiko To Hatchin is set in South America.
Jormungand goes pretty much all around the globe.
All animes set around The Warring States period takes place in China. (The Three Kingdoms, Sengoku Basara, Kingdom, etc...)
Nodame Cantabile: Paris (Obvious)
Monster shifts from Japan to various parts of Europe.
Baccano takes place in New York.
Oh, and Muv Luv: Alternative is taking place outside of Japan because it's occupied by hostile alien forces. (Alaska)

That's all I can think of right now.

Is it? I don't know why I remember that being China. But, now that I think about it, duh. "Masamune" and "Yukimura"... I guess it's because it seems so similar to Warring States animes. I stand corrected.

This is good.

Would you ever watch a slice-of-life anime series set in Netherlands and only the Netherlands?
Curious question.
