Question Looking for Manga, RPG video games, or Visual Novels with a Black Protagonist

I am Looking for Manga, RPG video games, or Visual Novels with a Black Protagonist.

Is there any such titles ? The heroines can be either White or Japanese or any kind of race/skin color/species.

Does it count when the characters are tanned to have dark skin?

I can contribute anime with black side characters, but there aren't any with black protagonists, unless you count the English language animation Afro Samurai. Or go out on a limb to construct dark skinned characters to be black, then there's Basquash and Tenjou Tenge.

Well there's Nadia Secret of Blue Water. The main heroine is Atlantean, but in this world Atlanteans are originally from Africa. They changed her hair to be smooth because they couldn't get it to look right with a more standard African texture, but otherwise left her as is.

If you want to get technical like this, Ged from Earth Sea is also supposed to be black. He just doesn't look the part and neither does Nadia. Also, weren't the Atlanteans basically aliens? I don't remember them originating from Africa.

OK yeah, checked the wiki and they were an alien race that genetically engineered whales and then humanity in order to be servants. That said, I got the impression that the remnants after their empire's destructions lived in Africa and interbred with people there. Nadia's just the only one left with any discernible traces of Atlantean blood left.
