What are the top black anime characters of all time? This is a hard question for me to answer. The popularity of anime is huge in Japan, and millions of people live vicariously through animated shows.

In the last few years, anime characters with black faces have become increasingly popular. They are not as common as they used to be, but they are also quite unique.

The characters all have different characteristics. For anyone who loves black anime characters, this is the perfect place for you!

There aren’t a lot of black characters in anime; when they are, they usually deal with the same stereotypes as African-Americans in personal life: unwed mothers and gang affiliations, for example.

It’s not uncommon to find anime characters whose skin color happens to be black. With the exception of perhaps some top names like Goku and Vegeta, not many people know that black anime characters exist.

This is a list of the best black anime characters. It is not uncommon for black characters to appear in anime, but they usually appear in the shadows of their white counterparts.

As a whole, these are excellent characters to pay attention to. Their stories and experiences, particularly that of being Black, are all very interesting and can be hard-hitting at times.

Some of the characters are main characters, some are side characters, and there are some villains as well. I tried to be as objective as possible when creating this list. I hope you find it helpful in some way, if only to introduce you to lesser known Black Anime characters.
