Japan is probably the most racist and insular of developed nations today. Stereotypes of non-Japanese abound there. Maya calls Bob 'Gaijin' all the time. Of course, she also calls Nagi 'Kozo', so maybe it's not a race thing.

The Ultimate Fight DVD (as most other anime DVDs from Japan) costs 5800 yen. Unless you are prepared to pay US$30 per half-hour episode, you might want to wait for a Geneon release.
