I've been wondering who was the first one, the oldest one I know is Yoyo Kurama from YuYu Hakusho, thought I'm not so sure.
Also who was the first one to die? I think it's Kaworu. What do you guys know?

Probably not older than Fist of the North Star, but there's these two from Angel's Egg

I'm going to cheat and say Kimba. He's a boy... albeit a lion one. (that gets you back to about 1965 or so...)

Probably some western character or old guy from one of the earliest days of anime. I don't know specifically but I bet you it was in something like Astroboy, Gigantor, Sally the Witch or Speed Racer. As to who died first I bet it was probably somebody from around the time of Lupin III. Once again I have no specific characters, I'm just going off of best guesses considering there is a large amount of time between the origins of anime and even the oldest guesses here which don't even go prior to the 80's. I'm almost certain Gundam and Macross had examples of both, and they were prior to anything listed here.

Almost thought about mentioning Kimba but I figured it might be cheating.


EDIT: Oh just remembered Juzo Okita, the captain in Space Battleship Yamamoto which began in 1974. Pretty sure he died too.

If you're speaking of Kaworu I assume you are, then he has grey hair, not white.

Oh I'm sorry I might've caused you confusion n.n I meant white/grey/light blue and light purple. people tend to group all of those together since animating and drawing white hair is a pain.

Well... put that in the title or edit your original post.

Problem solved.
