We all know anime is basically japanese 2d animation.So there are very less chances that they are gonna make tom & jerry or motu patlu.What i mean is that they are gonna make the show around their own cultures and history.
But sometime due to need of the story they do require foreigners in the anime.Most likely AMERICANS or Sometimes its INDIANS.
SO in this article i am going to introduce the
Indian characters which were seen in animes.
PRINCE SOMA ASMAN KADAR [Black Butler]
Black Butler,this anime shows the era of ‘The Britain Rule’ in which India was under British Rule.
He is the prince of Bengal. But guys he is not in the lead role. He is not one of the main characters of the show, he is well known for his antics and different way of thinking in the ‘Kuroshitsuji Fandom’.
He appeared first in the first series of the anime in the episode 13th.
AGNI [Black Butler]
AGNI is the butler of Prince Soma and was a Brahmin before he decided to serve Prince soma. He likes cooking, reading, meditating and is dark and handsome.
It was shown in the anime that Agni may cry tears of blood whenever he is in great distress and depression.
He was first seen in the 13th episode along with Prince soma in the first series of the anime.
Mina was the reason why Agni and Soma made their debut’s. Soma came to England in search of Mina, who was kind, friendly and loyal in his eyes and believed that she was forcibly brought to England.
But later her real selfish character was revealed by non-other than herself.
Earlier she used to serve Prince soma but she left the kingdom and india for England to marry a rich person and enjoy the life.
Later Prince and Agni went in search for her asking help from Ciel and Sebastian (the main characters) in order to rescue Mina and take her back to India.
But gets heartbroken when he sees the real face of Mina.
She was first seen in 14th episode of the first series of the anime.
This anime goes by the name Hetalia, countries are personified as humans, or better, each country is given an allegory of its own. Country India is no exception.
His name in Hetalia is ‘Republic of India’ or simply “India”, so this character can be considered as an Indian.
Hakim Atawari [Emma – A Victorian Romance]
He is a prince0 of INDIA and he is the best friend of William Jones (a main character in the series).
He is described to be straightforward and outgoing and is fond of social events. He was originally shown as a rival for the main character, but by character development purposes, it changed to a somewhat ‘non-rivalry’ friendship.

He made his first appearance in the 1st episode of the anime series.

Cyril Raham [History’s Strongest Disciple of Kenichi]
Cyril is a kind.gentle, passive man and believes that “the punishments of martial arts should be dealt by martial arts.”
However, he has a lethal side to him as well, as seen when he attacks the marma points of the forces sent to detain him in one of the arc.
He has got Immense strength, speed and endurance power and has mastered the Kalaripayattu,which is an Indian Martial Art.

Akira appears to be mysterious and rather stoic – not much is known about him. He often spies on Yuki, Haru, and Natsuki (main characters) from a safe distance and talks to his duck named Tapioca.
