Japan is the homeland of anime. Isn’t it obvious, isn’t it? The reason I bring this up is that characters with dark skin in anime…
Also, characters with lighter skin tones or darker hair and eyes aren’t as common in Western media as they are in Japanese.
Having said that, there are a few characters I’ve become fond of as I’ve continued my anime exploration.
In the category of dark/light skinned people. Some of the best characters and parts in the animes they appear in are played by these talented actors.
So, let’s get started with this.
11 dark and light skinned anime characters:
1. Mur Mur (Mirai Nikki)
Mur Mur appears to be a rambunctious child with an excess of both energy and power.
That’s what you learn about Mirai Nikki as you progress through the anime.
Other names include Future Diary and Time Diary.
Mur Mur is a fun, playful, dangerous, and adorable combination. I enjoyed her performance in Future Diary because of the part she played.
Overall, the series’ mood became even more gloomy and bizarre as a result.
2. Camilla Pareto (Asterisk War)
Camilla is one of the Asterisk War’s supporting characters.
It’s an action/fantasy with harem elements and a dark undercurrent behind it.
At first glance, Camilla comes across as a bit haughty. But as the series progresses, you begin to fall in love with her character.
That she’s not arrogant in the slightest.
She’s the kind of person who keeps her cool under pressure. Always using reasoning to make decisions.
Her decisions and judgements were never influenced by emotions.
What a shame she’s a member of Asterisk War’s “evil side.”
3. Souma Schicksal (God Eater)
Souma Schicksal is a character from the God Eater anime. Published in 2016
Souma resembles Bleach’s Byakuya Kuchiki in appearance.
Hard to get along with. Keeps you at a distance. Doesn’t hold back when he says what he really thinks.
Even if you find it infuriating.
But as you discover, there’s a darker, more fundamental cause for his behavior.
Souma, on the other hand, is a true introvert who has his priorities straight. As for the man, he is motivated by a certain goal.
4. Canaan (Canaan)
Canaan’s protagonist, Canaan, is a female character in the action anime.
Animes like Blood+, Noir, and Baccano have a lot in common with this.
She is able to see emotions as a result of her Synesthesia. Having a hue for each feeling.
I admire Canaan’s dedication, commitment, and resilience in the face of adversity.
The designers, in my opinion, did an outstanding job with the appearance and feel of her persona.
5. Syura (Akame Ga Kill)
If you’ve seen Akame Ga Kill, you’ll recognize Syura.
This is one of the most action-packed, violent, and melancholy animes ever produced.
His demeanor is haughty and he’s self-obsessed. Those aren’t exactly attributes that make people like you.
Although his little role in Akame Ga Kill was well-worth it, He also has one of the best black skin tones of any anime villain.
6. Arumi Asahina (Magical Shopping Arcade)
Magical Shopping Arcade stars Arumi, a little girl who is one of the show’s four central protagonists.
Arumi’s accent is one of its most intriguing features.
Arumi’s voice and accent stand apart from the rest of the normal anime accents and voices.
She’s also a character that’s simple to connect with right away.
7. Sphintus Carmen (Magi Series)
One of the supporting characters in Magi Kingdom Of Magic is Sphintus Carmen.
In addition, he shares a dorm with the film’s protagonist, Aladdin.
When you first meet Sphintus, you’ll find him to be unpleasant. As you learn more about Sphintus and Aladdin’s growing friendship, that all changes.
His design, like that of the most of the Magi cast, is appealing to me as well.
8. Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Full Metal Alchemist’s Scar is a popular character.
Because of a prior event he cannot forgive, his primary objective is to assassinate state aclhemists.
You can’t help but feel sorry for Scar as you watch him grow as a person.
Why he’s so obsessed with killing so many alchemists?
Scar would be in the top five since he is such an intriguing and endearing character.
9. Choi Mochimazzi (Tamako Market)
Love Choi. And her character design, in my opinion, is one of the greatest and most beautiful in the game.
Slice of life animation Tamako Market uses Choi as a supporting character.
The truth is, she’s quite a bit of a jerk, and she doesn’t take kindly to BS, to put it mildly.
And that’s why I like her character so much. In my opinion, one of Choi’s greatest assets is her impeccable demeanor.
10. Dutch (Black Lagoon)
One of the most fearsome characters in anime history.
The anime series Black Lagoon includes a scene in which the Dutch language is used. One of my personal favorites.
He’s a straight shooter, the Dutchman. He doesn’t hold back his words. And he isn’t afraid to say what he thinks.
There are no surprises if dutch has an issue.
Also, he has a wonderful sense of humor and is usually level-headed.
11. Kenji Harima (School Rumble)
Cartoonist from the School Rumble series, Kenji Harima
The ordinary person assumes he’s a thief based on his attire, as you’ll see. A deliquint, if that’s what you’re looking for.
In large part as a result of Kenji Harima’s past and the manner in which he dealt with situations.
Kenji Harima’s best quality is that he tries his hardest at everything he does.
And he goes to great lengths to achieve his goals. It doesn’t matter how terrible he does.
Even though I didn’t know him before, I found Kenji’s character growth fascinating.
