I even read the manga as far as it goes. Not even a single one to be seen as far as I remember.

You're clearly new to anime.

Isn't it based in Medieval Germany, so that makes sense anyway?
Given that 100 years prior to the estimated date based on technology (I have not read the manga so I don't know any of the dates, I don't even know how old Eren is at present), whiel Europe should have been sailing the world, colonising the Americas and trading slaves, there were building walls instead.

It's not so hard to imagine that humans wouldn't travel so far if there were a threat outside.

And before you get on "Mikasa is Asian", a lot of Asia is attatched to the same landmass as Europe, so it's not so hard to believe her ancestors fled West.

....It's clearly based in an area of Europe near or in Germany

If there are only maybe 2 million people left in existence, and those people are all towards the northern area of Europe, why would you think any of them would be black?

That wouldn't even make sense probability wise. So far they've only identified Mikasa and her mother as even having Asian descent and even that would be a stretch for the guesstimated time period and location.

(I've only watched the anime, someone reading the manga can correct any mistakes)

No, it's just that anime animators don't have to deal with the "We must have a mandatory member of each race on the goddamn planet, so we're politically correct." crap. They just draw what they want. Main reason so many anime characters look alike.

If you remember, nearly all races were wiped out, leaving only Caucasian. Misaka Ackerman was special because she was oriental (Asian for those who don't know), this being why she was kidnapped and her father killed, mother dying was an accident.

It wasn't to be racist, although not many anime shows have black people either way, but for Attack on Titan there was a reason for it.

japan is one of the more homogenous countries out there.
even though the japanese census does not take in to account the ethnicity of the people they count in to their tallies, but rather their nationality, thus making a lot of multi-ethnically backgrounded people be counted as full blooded japanese people, japan still has an incredibly high percentage of ethnically japanese citizens. i mean like 95% plus or some **** like that.
thus, people from japan don't give a **** about being politically correct to other ethnicities. there just aren't that many to worry about. this makes japanese anime and manga always be incredibly homogenous in their ethnic representations of people, whether they be japanese or just plain old white, or black or whatever.
japan don't care. japan don't give a **** .

Actually, during Mikasa flashback they mention that all non-aryan races were killed by the aryans, and that Mikasa's mother was like the only non-Aryan alive and she'd fetch a huge price on the slave market.

someone please tell me theyre at least on episode 20. so many animes i want to watch end about the same time
User avatar #74 to #65 - grasman (08/20/2013) [-]
The latest episode is 19 as far as I know.
They are at chapter ~27 of the manga but the manga already has 48 chapters.
When I was through all the anime episodes I simply continued to read the manga.
Actually I like the manga more then the anime.

This anime takes place in europe....

So, here's my thoughts on the matter: In episode 5 (i think) the anime covers that mikasas family was killed over some sort of human trade because her mother was the "last asian." The last pureblood asian has gone extinct, which means other races could have as well. The breeding of all of the humans locked in the walls has over time blended all of the races into the one which was chosen to be white.

Funny how they've placed all the titans on the top row, from the middle to the right (Ymir, Annie, Reiner, Berthold), besides of Eren (he's the main character, so ofc he gets the center of the picture). Isn't that giving away too much?

I guess? More interesting is how the female characters are not only able to join the military, but never have to prove themselves solely based on their gender. But at the same time they aren't just men without dicks and retain feminine characteristics.

all of the asian died so said the anime

Now, I watch very little anime, but I am going to assume that all the main characters are Asian, so there is not a single white person there.

(I did watch the first couple episodes of that show, pretty bangin' so far).

can someone explain to me the two main titans, the armored and collossal? it seems like people know about who they really are, but dont do anything about it
User avatar #32 - syrenthra (08/19/2013) [-]
I'm going to go with this explanation which I just came up with as I am typing:

In the anime at least we are shown that the humans were always on the run from the titans and really did not have settlements before the titans came. This would mean that the humans did not live in Africa for long enough to have their skin color change due to evolution and everyone is white.
When you throw in the fact that Mikasa is the last asian, then it is just possible the black people got wiped out like most of the asians and the walls are built in Europe like someone else mentioned.
