The Top 10 Americans in Anime

In honor of the 4th of July (Independence Day in America), we’ll take a look at some of the greatest American depictions in anime. Fasten your seat belts people, America is in the house.

10. America (Hetalia Axis Powers)

The embodiment of all American stereotypes: brash, ignores advice, comes up with ridiculous schemes to solve problems, and eats a lot of cheeseburgers (because Americans love their greasy food, right?).

9. Tina Foster (Ai Yori Aoshi)

Another typical American female stereotype: blonde, busty, and brash.  Also likes groping other girls’ boobs.

8. Charlotte Yeager (Strike Witches)

Very much like Tina in that she’s very busty.

7.  Angela Burton (Genshiken)

The first of Kanaka Ohno’s American friends. She’s tall, mature, and friendly. Her Japanese voice actress Yuki Kaida actually speaks really good English.

6. Susanna Hopkins (Genshiken)

The second of Ohno’s friends, who’s blonde, unsociable, and has an interest in yaoi.

5. Dennis Johnson (One Outs)

I had to put Johnson in the top 5. He’s the typical “fast black athlete.” Man, what a blatant stereotype.

4. The majority of the cast of Baccano! (review here)

I think that speaks for itself. Go watch the dub. It’s pretty good.

3. Revy (Black Lagoon)

A Chinese-American who grew up in NYC. She’s tough, foul-mouthed, and generally unsociable. Yet she’s a damn good fighter.

2. Chibodee Crocket (Mobile Fighter G Gundam – review here)

chibodee-crocket-g-gundam

The representative of Neo-America. Like Revy, he had a tough life growing up in NYC. He displays many American stereotypes. He’s brash and jumps head first without hesitation. He also has an entourage of beautiful girls.

1. Bandit Keith (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

…Not much needs to be said. Just watch the video, in America.

  1. I'd say honorable mention goes to Bryan Hawk and David Eagle from Hajime no Ippo. Both represent different stereotypes of American athletes (the former will do anything to win, the latter is very by-the-book and gentlemanly).

  2. Hahah of course Bandit Keith is number one
