    Sebastian is great. Sebastian is my British. I get his jokes. Even tho I am half British, I could get half of the struggles and the jokes.

    Surely a Seven Deadly Sins character would be viable for this list?

    The UK is the seconds most used nation for anime settings with the US following close in third. Such other well known tittles not included are Kiniro Mosaic, Detective Conan, the ancient magnus bride, Little which academia, the Unbreakable machine doll and the k on! movie to name a few more, this is also counting existing locations though so not D grey man. On a MyAnimeList thread I have also listed 40 UK real location based tittles in total so that is ALOT!

    you forgot :
    england of hetalia
    and L of death note (I know he is condidred quarter english by the author but he has british blood also the orphanage he was raised in was in england .)
    also a lot of black butler characters are from england 'cause the story happened in victorian english.
    sophia and hauru from howl's moving castle since its adaptated from an english novel by Diana Wynne Jones.
    also .Eriol from card captoor sakura and Usui takumi from kaichou wa maid sama rae half english .

    Good to see Dgrayman getting some recognition, although the synopsis was a bit lax. For those interested in watching the show, trust me when I say that its much more like HxH then bleach. The later seasons are rated tv MA, and they earn those ratings. While the show starts out much more stereotypical shounen esque, it quickly gets darker and explores very mature themes. It's definitely my favorite anime, and I recommend anyone reading this to give it a watch, especially sense the dub is fantastic.

    Joseph isnt british himself, the voice actor just makes him sound british. Dio Brando is actually british himself so why not add him?

    • J 19
      J 19 15 days ago +1

      Joseph was born in Britain so no he IS BRITISH. Don’t try to steal our British boi just because he moved to America .🤨🤦‍♂️😩

    I am really starting to think that watchmojo has something against hetalia as England/Britain/Arthur Kirkland is THE BRITISH ANIME CHARACTER.

    WHERE IS ENGLAND?! England from hetalia is the personification of England or Britain in human form! Given this channel's name it would only be fitting that he is on the list. And why the hell is Sebastian from black butler so bloody low?

  • Tom Tom

    Is it only me or does it bother every single British person on Earth that most of these speak with an American accent?

    • J 19

    Heute wollen wir ein Liedlein singen,
    Trinken wollen wir den kühlen Wein
    Und die Gläser sollen dazu klingen,
    Denn es muß, es muß geschieden sein.

    Gib' mir deine Hand, deine weiße Hand,
    Leb' wohl, mein Schatz, leb' wohl mein Schatz,
    Leb' wohl, lebe wohl
    Denn wir fahren, denn wir fahren,
    Denn wir fahren gegen Engeland, Engeland.

    Unsre Flagge und die wehet auf dem Maste,
    Sie verkündet unsres Reiches Macht,
    Denn wir wollen es nicht länger leiden,
    Daß der Englischmann darüber lacht.

    Gib' mir deine Hand, deine weiße Hand,
    Leb' wohl, mein Schatz, leb' wohl mein Schatz,
    Leb' wohl, lebe wohl
    Denn wir fahren, denn wir fahren,
    Denn wir fahren gegen Engeland, Engeland.

    Kommt die Kunde, daß ich bin gefallen,
    Daß ich schlafe in der Meeresflut,
    Weine nicht um mich, mein Schatz, und denke:
    Für das Vaterland da floß sein Blut.

    Gib' mir deine Hand, deine weiße Hand,
    Leb' wohl, mein Schatz, leb' wohl mein Schatz,
    Leb' wohl, lebe wohl
    Denn wir fahren, denn wir fahren,
    Denn wir fahren gegen Engeland, Engeland.

      J 19 15 days ago

      Britannia ( the nation in code geas)is located in North America so culturally it’s a mixture of Britain and America

      Sir, I am the ultimate chucklefuck. My ears bleed when I hear dubs. I cry tears of acid. Then I burn the place down and offer subtitles instead.

      @GalopaWXY Oh, ok. So you're one of *those* chucklefucks.

    • GalopaWXY
      GalopaWXY 3 months ago

      Those are dubs. They're not real. Watch them in original Japanese language and you'll see the difference.

    • hopkin 200
      hopkin 200 5 months ago

      Come on, she's not that bad. I think she deserves a place on that list. Or at least an Honorable Mention.

    Tbh, I did not realise that there were this many British characters in anime. That’s pretty cool.

    • Lupus2324
      Lupus2324 5 months ago +3

      Mainly because sometimes the English dub gives them American accents instead of British some British characters on this list had American accents too

  • Karl Cembrano
    Karl Cembrano 5 months ago

    Seras over Integra?! Okay Sera is a fun character but Integra is more badass as she is practically human and still is willing to beat the crap out of the undeads.
    Also Artoria, much better than the official one

    i am ashamed Arthur Kirkland AKA The United Kingdom Of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the anime Hetalia Axis Powers wasn't on this list
    in that anime all the nations are personified as humans
    so he is the literal personification of England and HE didn't make this list
