* Patricia Martin from ''Anime/LuckyStar'': Introduced working alongside Konata at the CosplayCafe wearing full [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Mikuru]] regalia. Her whole purpose comes down to being a way for the creators to (gently) parody Western fans. Heck, her knowledge of the Japanese language and culture is derived solely from fansubbed anime and manga. Not to mention she's also a requisite YaoiFangirl. In universe, Konata and Hiyori hit it off with her pretty quickly, and her more OccidentalOtaku moments mostly get written off to her being a foreign BunnyEarsLawyer.

* In the late 19th century artists, particularly French and British artists, loved to emulate Japanese woodblock styles. In many ways, the Japonism of the 19th century helped inspire the modernism of the 20th century.

* Despite not actually being very fond of Japan itself, Lord El-Melloi II from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has a well known preoccupation with Japanese video games, [[spoiler:a quirk he adopted from his former Servant of [[LightNovel/FateZero the fourth Grail War, Alexander the Great]]]]. He was quite excited to learn that one of the students he was sponsoring was actually Japanese... until he discovered that she knew absolutely nothing about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akihabara Akihabara]] or otaku culture.
