Why don't we have a thread about anime where a big chunk of the story is not based in Japan, but on some other part of earth?
If it's not based in another country but it teaches you about the customs of some non-japan country, that is ok.
Fantasy worlds do not count.
Stuff like Kiniro mosaic where you learn about the customs of both Japan and some other however does count.

I wonder if you guys could recommend me some anime that are based in Russia or Sweden?
The only anime I know that handle Russia are Girls und Panzer and Darker than black season 2. And I do not know really any anime that has anything to do with Sweden. I am fine with other nordic countries as well.


Anime with historical setting is more likely to be based outside of Japan. Mostly ancient China and some undefined European countries though.

Chevalier d'Éon is set in France.
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée - France.
Blassreiter - Germany.
Monster - Germany.
Kuroshitsuji - UK.
Hellsing - UK.

Ristorante Paradiso - Italy.
Gunslinger Girl - Italy.
Porco Rosso - Italy.

great anime with amazing animation.


Gunsmith Cats is set in Chicago.
Mad Bull 34 is set in New Yawk.
