Who knew there were so many great American anime characters? Most anime characters are Japanese, but for this list we're featuring anime characters from the United States. Revy from Black Lagoon is one of the most popular, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty more American anime characters out there. What about Raye Penber and Naomi Misora from Death Note? Misora actually got her own story in the light novel Death Note: Another Note. Vote for your favorite anime characters from America on this list, and downvote any characters you don't care for.
