Because anime is a Japanese invention, Japanese characters predominate in anime culture. Other cultures from around the world can also be found there.
As anime is getting more and more popular in other parts of the world, creators are engraving diversity in the anime world to gain more attention.
Today, we’ll celebrate this diversity with a list of Mexican anime characters. You could call them Latino anime characters, and we hope you enjoy getting to know them.

Sado Yasutora, also known as Chad, is a tall adolescent of Japanese and Mexican descent. He has dark skin, pronounced cheekbones, and wavy brown hair with bangs that fall over his brown eyes.
On his left shoulder, he has a tattoo of a winged heart and a snake, with the words ‘Amore e Morte’ (“love and death” in Italian). Throughout the series, Chad demonstrates that he is stronger than most people realise, and he appears to have an innate special power that develops quickly.
He possesses incredible speed and strength, as well as tremendous stamina and spiritual power. Chad was extremely violent in his early years. He intimidated and hit any child who annoyed him, taking advantage of his size advantage.
Chad was inspired to be gentle by his abuelo, Oscar Joaquin de la Rosa. Oscar then gave Chad an old Mexican coin, which he kept after Oscar died. Chad has vowed since then that he will never fight unless it is to protect others, even if it means risking his own life.
