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.

Anyone mention Blue from Wolf's Rain yet? http://myanimelist.net/character/465/Blue

Although, why does it really matter? Its just a color.

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.

Mashengo is not from Africa, he's not even from Earth.

He's not black. He's just some dark-skinned African-Alliancer that fights for his rights.

Yes. Those who say only people born in Africa are black are stupid. And for this thread, I'm not interested in cosplayers. It is irrelevant and it has nothing to do with my comment : My opinion is that Michiko is not black. It's easy enough to make me change my mind. Prove to me that's she's not Latin American. Then prove to me she's black.

Regardless, Michiko to Hatchin is a very good anime with a cast of darker than white characters.

There were a couple of minor black characters from major.
Like the baseball players.
There was a black police officer in higashi no eden
There were 3 black guys in a gintama episode
And there was some black guy in fmp.
I don't think I know anyone other than that.

Funy that I had a conversation like this with my friends a couple of days ago...

google anyone? lol

http://www.colorq.org/PetSins/2005/9/charas.aspx?x=ag

over 50 characters


No offense but that site is crap, they list anyone with dark skin,tanned skin or barely even brown skin as black. Black people are not the only people in the world with dark skin,tanned colored skin, or barely even brown skin. That site doesn't take into account that some of these people could be just tanned, Hispanic,maybe depicting an actual Asian person with slightly or barely brown skin,native American,Indian,middle eastern or some other ethnicity or race.

Agreed, however, it is a testament to diversity in anime.

I always wondered if Mr. Popo was supposed to be an extremely exaggerated black human or an alien. Those ears make me think he was of another species.
For now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see.

Tengo Tenge has a black dude.

Also Eden of East has Black people that actually sounds like black people.
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.
