    Cool Historical Anime Characters

    Letís come up with the names of anime characters who were actual, real life people. Real life people just making cameos are not included. What I am looking for are characters, major or supporting, who are central to the plot. I can think of four.

    Jiro Horikoshi from The Wind Rises. Horikoshi was the designer of the Japanese Zero used during World War II. Writer/director Hayao Miyazaki tries to paint him as a sympatric figure that was not all that supportive of the war effort. I have no idea how historically accurate that is, or is it just to make the film more acceptable to western, particularly American, audiences?

    Fritz Lang from Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa. For those of you who are not classic movie buffs, Fritz Lang was one of Germanyís greatest film directors, until he fled the Nazi government and came to the US and made his contribution to film noir. So now you ask, what the hell does he have to do with FMA? Conqueror of Shamballa is the wrap up movie to the original FMA series. Ed and Al find themselves in our dimension; particularly in Germany about the time of Hitlerís failed beer hall putsch. So the movie does have a lot of history in it, but as far as I can remember, Fritz Lang is the only real historical figure Ed encounters. He looks like Fuhrer Bradley.

    O-ei from Miss Hokusai. O-ei was the daughter of a famous artist, and an accomplished artist in her own right. Unfortunately, few of the works of the historic O-ei survive.

    DíEon de Beaumont from Le Chevalier DíEon. A young French aristocrat joins the secret police to solve the mystery over the murder of his sister. Sis was an expert swordswoman, and from time to time takes possession of her brotherís body to aid in the various battles. The real life DíEon de Beaumont was an 18th century French nobleman who lived his live as a woman.

    Your turn.

    A fifth historical character just came to mind. Well, actually this one is a stretch. The character is not a real historical person, but rather just looks like one. It's Freddie from Cromartie High School, a "dumb, but fun" anime about hapless teenage gangs. Freddie looks exactly like the late Freddie Mercury from Queen. We see, but don't hear him sing. He doesn't even talk. He is the leader of one of the gangs, but we never see him lead nor do we see his gang.

    How many America views could cheer for the man who designed the planes which the Japanese kamikaze pilots drove into American ships? (That turned out to be a rather stupid strategy. Both the plane and the highly trained pilot would be lost.)

    Imagine finding one of your favorite movie directors in an anime:



    See the guy who looks like Furher Bradley? That's supposed to be Fritz Lang, director of Metropolis, M, Scarlet Street, and The Big Heat.



    Fritz Lang



    Furher Bradley

    Why do they look alike? Watch Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa.

    Hmm, very interesting. I was not interested in matching the anime characters with real people. I was more familiar with Easter eggs in World of Warcraft. There are a lot of references to famous people, books, films, characters.

    Kay_Bur, for your response I will dedicate this entry to you. (Give some examples, though.)

    From Le Chevalier D'Eon, there's no bending like gender bending:



    The real life D'Eon de Beaumont would approve.

    From your link:

    "Shimazu Toyohisa, a famous samurai who fought in the historical Battle of Sekigahara, is transported to another world when only moments from death. From that moment on, he becomes part of a group known as 'Drifters' and is forced to battle against other legendary warriors in an ultimate death game."

    Based on this, I assume it is a bit like the Fate series, only with time travel. Correct?

    You're right. Though Jack and Al both were in only one episode. Death I would not call an historic character.

    Jack the Ripper also appeared in one of the Fate series. She was a homicidal little girl.

    Another one I haven't heard of. Tell us a bit about it. My guess is that it centered around Marie, at least up to the time she lost her head.

    Default Re: Historical Anime Characters

    Let's rescue a general definition right out from Wikipedia:

    The Shinsengumi (新選組, "New Select Brigade") was a special police force organized by the Bakufu (military government) during Japan's Bakumatsu period (late Tokugawa shogunate) in 1863. It was active until 1869. It was founded to protect the shogunate representatives in Kyoto at a time when a controversial imperial edict to exclude foreign trade from Japan had been made and the Chōshū clan had been forced from the imperial court. The men were drawn from the sword schools of Edo.

    This particular group has appeared in many anime shows.
    In Gintama:


    In Fate:


    In Kenshin:


    And of course, this includes the most famous members, such as Kondō Isami, Hijikata Toshizō, Okita Sōji...

    Gintama even has Shinpachi! All these names are used a lot in anime, and these three series are just examples, because, indeed, there are many more.

    Yes. The story revolves around her but she's not the protagonist. It was Oscar, the commander of the Royal Guard.

    Dude he's in the freaking Bible. Among many other historical documents.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    As an actual living person, or as a character or a metaphor?
