    Red face Favorite Non-Japanese Anime Characters

    Who are your favorite non-Japanese anime characters?

    Anime may be Japanese, but not all series take place in the Land of the Rising Sun, and not all characters are of Japanese ethnicity.

    Include only humans. You may include characters from alternate Earths, but they have to be human and not alien. So Sayans do not count. So in no particular order, my choices:

    Henrietta from Gunslinger Girl. Henrietta is an orphan in Italy, taken in by the Social Welfare Agency, which takes in other orphans. After augmenting them, the girls are trained as assassins. Isn’t that nice of them? The augmentation seems to shorten their life span, but the girls are OK with that. Henrietta does remain the series’ focus, though we do get to know the other girls. This one is dark and depressing. Stay away from the second season, which is more in line with the manga. They change the ending of season one, only to make it weaker. Well, season two was done by a different production team.

    Revy from Black Lagoon. Revy takes crap from no one. Though I do think she has a soft spot in her heart for “Rock.” Revy is half-Chinese, half-American, and all one-tough-b****.

    Lelouch from Code Geass. Code Geass takes place on an alternate Earth where Japan is forced to become part of the Britannian Empire. So we can assume that Lelouch, a member of the royal family, is Britannian, or British. Still he fights for Japanese independence as Zero, with the aid of his trusty pizza-loving sidekick and the power of Geass.

    Violet Evergarden from Violet Evergarden. Again, an alternate Earth where peace has finally come ending a long bloody war. The series seems to take place in a European setting, though that is not directly stated. Violet is a former soldier/killing machine, disabled by the war, and who now must learn what it is like to be human in a world at peace. She ends up teaching others about humanity and human connections.

    Saya from Blood+. Definitely European, we are just given enough information on Saya’s past to know that much. Now she must fight Chiropterans, avenge herself on Diva, and be a good sister to Kai and Riku. Some just have it so easy.

    Seymon Brezhnev from Durarara. Others would pick Celty, but Seymon is an even greater mystery. This Russian sushi chef speaks with a Russian accent, but he is black. This is not what they mean by a black Russian. Anyway, bad drinking jokes aside, in DurararaX2, Seymon has a smaller role to play, but we do get hints of a secret and violent past showing us he is not what he appears to be.

    Isaac and Miria from Baccano. You can’t name one without the other. All the characters in Baccano are non-Japanese. They are either Americans or with a European background. Isaac and Miria are only supporting characters in the stories of everyone else, but they are there present in each sub-plot. They hold the show together. They are also so stupidly inept that you can’t help but love them.

    More later? Maybe. But now you contribute.

    Do you mean anime characters from manga made in a country other than Japan, or just any character that has a different nationality?

    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.

    I mean non-Japanese characters in Japanese anime.

    ---------- Post added at 10:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:30 PM ----------

    Little girls with big guns makes for one dark anime. Season 1 of Gunslinger Girl ends darkly.
     
    One of the girls seemingly dies, while the others taking some time off enjoy each others company and some fireworks. It was one powerful ending. Unfortunately, season 2 was taken over by a different team which not only changed the artistic style, but chose to adhere more closely to the manga. The dead girl was revived, making for one weaker storyline.

    Our next non-Japanese character is Black Lagoon's own princess, Revy.



    As I said, she is Chinese-American. I wonder from which side she gets her. . . . Style.

    Now for something completely different, Violet Evergarden takes place in on an alternate Earth. But it is still obviously an alternate Europe on an alternate Earth.

    As she tries to adapt from a world of war to a world of peace, Violet's search for her humanity inspires and changes the lives of others:

    In Blood+, we learn about Saya's origins in a flashback to 19th century Europe. So, she's a European gentlewoman. Things really change over the years:



    In the 20th century, she's badass!

    In Durarara, Seymon/Simon is just a supporting character. In Durarara 2, he has a lesser presence, but the mystery of his past is hinted at.

    We first meet the black Russian:

    Yes, but we are only talking about humans from Earth, or an alternate Earth. No aliens.

    I have a new addition. It is Thorfinn, the main character from Vinland Saga. He is descendent from Danish Vikings. Actually, most of the characters are Danish Vikings -- or Brits or Welshmen.

    More on this series later. I am just a bit more than half-way through the first season.
