Published on January 3, 2020

What do you think about pink hair? Pink is a pretty cute color and especially in anime where you see characters sporting outrageous hairstyles and colors, pink hair is a recurring trait. However not every girl with pink hair is your typical kawaii character. This past decade we’ve seen an amazing array of characters who have pink hair but have varied personalities. Let’s take a look at Twenty Ten’s girls who have pink hair.

10. Saya Takagi from Highschool of the Dead

Saya is an absolute genius and is the brains of the team. Instead of fighting, she prefers to come up with strategies on how to outwit them. Don’t let her soft pink hair fool you. She is far from docile and is in fact very arrogant and stubborn. Saya always considers herself to be right because she is so smart, and comes off as mean more often than not. However, deep down she is a tsundere and her demeanor changes when she finally allows herself to be close to others.

Anime release date: July 2010.

9. Faris NyanNyan from Steins;Gate

Faris anime girl

Faris is the owner of her maid cafe MayQueen NyanNyan in Steins;Gate. As her name suggests and also because she works in a maid cafe, she ends all of her sentences with the word “nya”. She has an ability called the Cheshire break, which allows her to see inside of people’s hearts by looking into their eyes. Although outwardly she is very moe, inside she is very insecure and self-conscious. It may be that she is using her cute appearance and personality to mask her insecurities.

8. Ram from Re:Zero

Although Ram is more outgoing and forward than her twin sister Rem, she is also kind of mean and selfish. If you had to compare the twins, Ram definitely would not be the cute one, despite her pink hair, she seems self-centered. However, the fact is she just does not like to be close to other people. Being the older one of the twins, she also possesses different talents and aptitudes that are applauded by everybody.

When you say the name Mitsuri Kanroji, the first word that comes to mind is compassion- because that’s what she has the most. She is very compassionate and emotional. Jokingly called “the Pillar of Love”, Mitsuri is always looking for the good things in everybody she meets. Inside her head, she is complimenting the people around her. She is probably the only character in this list who has pink hair and has the traditionally soft demeanor associated with it. Mitsuri really wants to become a wife, but only to a man who is stronger than her, which proves to be a very difficult thing as Mitsuri herself is quite strong.
