Let's see, anime is Japanese. If the story line has to do with something from jamaican culture, sure why not. Aside from that, I don't see the point, I mean yeah it will be different but irrelevant.

Its a genre of Jamaica music.

I think I saw an anime a while ago with some Jamaican influences but way more Latin American. Michiko & Hatchin I believe it was called. Ended up being a favorite of mine.

"Michiko & Hatchin" I think is set in Brazil, which has a large ethnic Japanese population. Peru has some ethnic Japanese too, they even had a president who was Japanese-Peruvian.

That's what I thought when I first watched it. But apparently it takes many different influences in various locations throughout South America besides Brazil.


The story takes place in a fictional country with cultural traces from South American countries, mostly from Brazil. The title's Michiko is a free-willed "sexy diva" who escapes from a supposedly inescapable prison fortress, while Hatchin is a girl fleeing her abusive foster family.

I just... umm.. huh?

If you're asking about the music, I guess if it's appropriate to the context and setting. I personally find most reggae to be grating on the ears and annoying to listen to but I can't say it should never be used.

Manglobe Studios seems to have a fascination with Latin American countries in their anime in general. Such a shame that studio went under, I hope the best for their former employees.

Yeah Ska and Reggae share roots. In fact, Ska came first and bands like the Skatalites (which I was lucky enough to see live back in the 90's when most of the band was still alive) were part of Bob Marley's inspiration. First wave ska music is a lot like reggae, just a little more jazzy I guess.

NO. All I can picture is a group of Anime characters sitting around smoking pot to reggae Reggae music in anime would immediately turn me away from that series.

Can anyone picture an anime girl with dreadlocks? Ahh
