I really don't know any other.

I can't believe I didn't mention Dutch. Shame on me.

I believe there was an antagonist who is black in Blood+. I tried to look him up but I've had no luck so far.

Michiko was born in a city in South America (which is also where the anime takes place). I'm pretty sure she isn't black. But perhaps a character bio can prove me wrong?

I wasn't trying to. I'm just saying that she was born in South America. Since I don't see anything in the story that covers what her parents were like, I think it's safe to assume that she isn't black. Like I said: I could very well be wrong about her not being black, but I have my (valid) reasons for doubting that.

well it depends on what the OP means by "black"

If we're going darker skin then p much 80% of the Michiko to Hatchin cast.

like

There are more. but I am too lazy to list them.

This would be James Ironside, one of Diva's chevaliers.


Gorobei from Samurai 7 is dark-skinned. Not necessarily of African descent though.
There's also Alishie from Gash Bell, who was from a village in Africa.

There's Clouseau in Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid.

Also, one of Elvy's squad members in RahXephon is black, and Elvy herself might be (it's kinda hard to tell).

Yeah...that's the way to do it. Label ones with darker skin as black - forget Southeast Asians, Latin Americans, etc. If it's darker than white, it's a black character...sheesh.

My opinion is Michiko isn't black.

Oh and Nadia.

And also Anthy and Akio from Utena. Though they may be more Indian than African.

So only people born in Africa are black? That is stupid.

And I know about a tojn of them due to cosplay lists. So the black chicks stop cosplaying Yoko.

Agon and his twin brother and Panther from Eyeshield 21.

Akagi from Slam Dunk

Kabaji from the Prince of Tennis

Though I am not really sure about a couple of the characters they just might just have a darker skin tone.
