Nevertheless, website Anime! Anime! asked its readers to vote for their favorite American characters in Japanese anime, with any character born in the U.S., having American citizenship, or at least one American parent eligible.
Well, if we’re talking about American anime characters, it really can’t get any more American than America, the anthropomorphized embodiment of the country itself.
Japanese fans vote in survey for their favorite anime characters who hail from the U.S.A., including sports stars, violent killers, and mecha pilots.
Here in Japan, of course, the Fourth of July isn’t a holiday.
