Ever since Shaman King Remake was announced, I was ecstatic to say the least! This anime was one of the most underrated shonen series and often overlooked by the masses! Now that’s it’s getting a remake, more people will get to experience that greatness! However,m I’d be lying if I said Chocolove McDonell didn’t immediately pop into my mind! He’s likely the elephant in everyone mind when the anime got announced!
One of my biggest annoyances when it comes to character creation sections in games is the lack of hair options for Afrocentric people. Look, it’s great that they finally added detailed skin tone variations, but that really does me or people like me any good when I’m forced to either go with the Afro, thick dreads or buzz cuts IF I wanted to created an authentic Black character. And what’s puzzling to me is why that’s always been largely ignored. At first I thought, “huh, maybe our hair just ain’t that easy to model or animate”, then I’d take one look at ANY of the 2K NBA games and realize that’s bullshit.
Since it’s Black History month, I thought it’d be cool to share with you guys some of my favorite Black/Dark skinned characters that I’ve had the opportunity to come across over the years. These range from design, story powers literally anything that made me go “Oh snap”!
I’m huge anime fan, been a fan for quite some time now and I’ll presume that you’re fan too. Today, I want to express my opinion on a matter that should have quite honestly have ended a long time ago, but unfortunately still carries on till this day and that is the portrayal of black anime characters….
