  1. I have more or less three “theories”, so feel free to judge :

    — Benkei is fully japanese, and just very tanned (if he’s from Okinawa, for exemple)

    — The only character with the same skintone as him was Izana, so maybe he’s (half) filipino ? Since (apart from Japan, for obvious reasons), the Philippines is a country that is regulaty mentionned in the manga.

    — Or maybe he’s Brazilian (like South), because Brazil has a strong japanese community.

    And four months later, we will learn that Benkei is Italian and I will look stupid.
    (also, this post remind me that we know more or less nothing about Benkei)

  2. I think he’s just tanned, that or Filipino. I forget which cover it was that had him on it but he was a lot lighter than I thought he’d be 💀

  3. his name is fully Japanese so it’s unknown until Wakui gives us more info on him. He could just have a tan but it would be cool if he was Blasian, there’s so few Blasian anime/manga characters that when you google it all that comes up are edits

  4. I am ngl bro. [young Benkei could lowkey get the pass ong](https://mangadex.org/chapter/59a849e3-aefa-42ed-9d09-8187716762a7/10), When I first saw this chapter I legit thought bro had Cornrows 😭

    But I honestly think he’s just a big tanned Japanese dude or he might be mixed with something ion know.
