Many anime and real-life characters portray girls with short hair as tomboys or as somehow lacking in femininity. Neither sexy nor attractive is necessary.
Even in anime, short hair may be appealing, so who’s to say it can’t be.
For a variety of reasons, whether or not you’ve heard of these anime heroines before, they’re noteworthy.
Anime girls with short hair share some of these characteristics: personality, appeal, design, and likability (in this post).
Let us now begin.
1. Shinobu Kochou (Demon Slayer)
Shinobu, the protagonist of the 2019 anime: Demon Slayer, has short hair and an anime appearance. Using a butterfly clasp, she secures it around her neck.
The “butterfly” motif serves as a metaphor for Shinobu’s personality. In battle, she’s recognized for being nimble and agile, and her manoeuvring is reminiscent of that of a butterfly.
When Shinobu appears to save Zenitsu from death, this is the first time you see it.
Shinobu’s soft exterior hides a darker, more sinister aspect of her psyche.
2. Ram And Rem (Re:Zero)
In the Re:Zero series, Ram and Rem are twin demon sisters. They do everything in synchrony.
They are always in tune with their appearance, hairstyle, demeanor, and mannerisms. For the most part, at least. Their hairstyles are the one thing that unites them.
Rem and Ram are only depicted with long hair in anime art. However, in the official anime and light novels, is there any mention of this? It’s all about the short hair.
As Rem’s older sister, she’s more reserved and quiet (blue hair). When it comes to Ram, being the older sibling, he is more confident and proud.
3. Hina (Hinamatsuri)
Slice of life series Hinamatsuri features the heroine, Hina. “Trivial” things aren’t important to her, because she’s aloof, reserved, and calm and collected.
By not saying a word, Hina expresses her disinterest in a subject or a person.
Or ignoring you outright.
Compared to the others on this list, Hina is a relative novice, but she’s a lot more intelligent than she appears.
Her most appealing quality is how honest she is. However, she does have a propensity to become disoriented from time to time.
4. Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
Short-haired anime heroines like Rukia Kuchiki are a dime a dozen. Since the beginning of Bleach, she’s been this way. Throughout the more than 300-episode run, this is the case.
Rukia has the appearance of a tomboy at times. As a result of her personality, she is a powerful female character with leadership qualities.
However, Rukia’s anxieties make her relatable to people of all sexes.
To me, she is one of the most attractive Bleach characters even if she is not depicted as a “sexual” character.
5. Mayaka Ibara (Hyouka)
The first person to call you out on your BS will be Mayaka Ibara. She has short brown hair and is exactly the type of anime girl you’d expect.
In Hyouka, she’s the one who’s always the most somber, direct, and honest. As a result, all three of the other personalities are better able to coexist harmoniously.
Regardless of how she appears, Mayaka is generally a pleasant person. In addition, the show would be a completely different experience if she wasn’t involved.
6. Bulma (Dragon Ball Franchise)
There have been a lot of hairstyle changes for Bulma during the anime series. In particular during the first season of Dragon Ball.
For the most part , Bulma like to sport a “short” hairdo in the DBZ universe.
In the Dragon Ball Super anime, she has short blue hair from the beginning to the end.
Bulma’s one of my favorite female anime characters because she stands out from the crowd.
Can’t just put Bulma into another anime and expect to obtain the same level of excellence. This is typical of original characters and Bulma is no different.
She’s a character who is both beautiful and intelligent, and the plot of DBZ would not have been conceivable without her.
7. Sayaka Miki (Madoka Magica)
Awkward and outgoing at the same time, Sayaka Miki is the kind of character you can’t help but like. It depends on the circumstances.
While Sayaka Miki doesn’t play an important role in the anime’s plot, Homura Akemi does. Her unique personality has made her one of the most recognized magical girls.
8. Lisbeth (Sword Art Online)
From the first season of SAO, Lisbeth has pink hair. As a side character, she’s been around since the beginning of the story.
Slightly less important than the main characters when it comes to combat and serious matters, she nonetheless has a positive impact on the show’s zanier moments.
In the anime, Lisbeth’s hair is never long, even while she is in her “human” form outside of SAO.
As a person, she’s a ray of sunshine who brightens the mood.

9. Seishirou Tsugumi (Nisekoi)
Seishirou Tsugumi’s “tomboyish” persona and demeanor are a lot like Rukia Kuchiki’s. In terms of fashion, she prefers to dress up and look put together.
At first glance, she appears to have an air of self-assurance that belies her tender and vulnerable nature.
Tsugumi’s hair is possibly the shortest among the girls in Nisekoi.
Season 1 and Season 2 of Nisekoi both have the same style.
10. Saber (Fate Series)
Saber is the epitome of a lady who is both confident and refined. Prim and decent is how we refer to this kind of dress in the United Kingdom.
King Arthur is the inspiration for Saber. The only difference is that she’s a woman.
The time she spends practicing and fighting means she never lets her hair down. Always working hard and never wasting time, never slacking off or taking a break.
As a female protagonist, Saber is among the greatest.
She’s not just a powerful character who believes in herself; she’s also “feminine,” and her function in the Fate series doesn’t have any superfluous parts.
11. Mash Kyrielight (Fate Grand Order)
Known for her short hair, Mash Kyrielight is Mash Kyrielight. As it turns out, Mash Kyrielight’s unusual personality is mostly due to his penchant for this sort of behavior.
In the Fate universe, she is the only Fate character to be in the Fate Grand Order universe, a mobile game.
Mash Kyrielight’s outgoing nature makes her reminiscent of Yuuki Konno (and voice in the dub).
12. Najenda (Akame Ga Kill)
Night Raid, an assassination group run by Najenda in Akame Ga Kill, aims at overthrowing the government and eliminating corruption.
If you’ve ever encountered a girl who refuses to compromise and does not need to be told “what” to do, Najenda’s demeanor will be recognizable to you.
She’s a tomboy like some of the other characters on this list. Even more so than the typical anime character would be.
As a leader and a thinker, she’s an underappreciated character.
13. Iris Cannary (Violet Evergarden)
Iris Cannary, a tanned and slightly taller female character in anime, is a standout character.
She’s frank and doesn’t hold back when it comes to expressing her opinions or boasting about her accomplishments. Her confidence is shining through, so it’s hard to call it arrogant.
A “client” of Violet Evergarden, Iris Cannary, has become entwined in the plot.
This is an event that helps her grow. Violet Evergarden’s emotional impact will be amplified even further.
14. Shirayuki (Snow White With The Red Hair)
There are just a few anime characters with short red hair, and Shirayuki is one of them. Aside from Yona from Yona Of The Dawn, there are no others.
Despite her young age, Shirayuki has a greater depth of wisdom and grit than most people twice her age.
One of my favorite Shirayuki quotations (which we can all identify with) is this:
You’re practicing commerce, not kindness, if you’re doing good deeds and expecting something in return. In this case, Shirayuki
15. Mei Misaki (Another)
Mei Misaki is a reclusive, reclusive character that prefers to be alone. And she doesn’t become involved with too many students at school.
It’s not that Mei Misaki doesn’t care about other people; rather, it’s her past experiences that have shaped the way she acts.
Another’s gloomy plot calls for a character with a cold, detached demeanor. Because it’s an accurate portrayal of Mei’s thoughts and actions. Somewhat.
16. Tamaki Kowazoe (Bamboo Blade)
In the Bamboo Blade cast, Tamiki Kowazoe is one of the younger characters. Also, one of the most skilled Kendo practitioners around.
Since Tamiki has been practicing Kendo for much of her life, her dedication to the sport comes as no surprise.
Tamiki excels at kendo more than any other sport. And no one can even come close to a match against her.
But what about in real life? Anxious and shy, she has difficulty making friends or adjusting to new situations.
The combination of her shaved head and diminutive stature leads some to mistakenly believe she is a boy.
17. Miwa Yamamura (Barakamon)
When Miwa Yamamura knows she can get away with it, she enjoys teasing others.
Miwa is a curious person who doesn’t take things too seriously, despite her jovial demeanor.
Every episode of Barakamon that features Miwa is brightened by her presence. And this is true despite the fact that Barakamon is a really laid-back animation.
18. Hanayo Koizumi (Love Live School Idol Project)
Hanayo Koizumi, like Tamaki Kowazoe, is a socially awkward introvert who crumbles in large crowds.
Because she’s a staunch introvert and lacks self-confidence, she can’t handle it.
The part of Hanayo that shines when it comes to assisting others is that of her support for her friends.
And when she gets “lost” in a subject, she only realizes after the fact that she has done so.
In a manner reminiscent of Deku’s from MHA,
19. Ochako Uraraka (My Hero Academia)
Ochako Uraraka, another anime female with short hair, can be found in the series My Hero Academia.
My Hero Academiashinesas a Shounen series because of her.
Somehow, she’s like another Deku in a parallel universe, or a different coloration of Deku.
At first, Ochako is a timid and insecure character. Ochako’s character is propelled by her determination and self-awareness over her life goals and what she wants.
Despite her aspirations, she’s already learned a lot from her time in MHA.
20. Kyoka Jiro (My Hero Academia)
My Hero Academia’s Kyoka Jiro is one of the show’s most memorable side characters. When compared to other characters, she stands out because of her unique appearance and the fact that her special skill revolves around sound and hearing.
A “nicer” version of Bleach character Byakuya Kuchiki, Kyoka is the same calm and collected as Kuchiki in every way. If not, then at least it’s a step up.
When the going gets tough, Kyoka keeps a level head and an alert eye on the situation.
As far as I can tell, she hasn’t used any clichés in her writing.
21. Yosano Akiko (Bungou Stray Dogs)
Bungou Stray Dogs’ “mad” character is Yosano Akiko. When it comes to her specific talent, “Thou Shalt Not Die,” she’s simply considered mad because of it.
The skill allows her to heal herself and those who are close to death. She’s changed her viewpoint after using this ability so frequently.
Because of his unique point of view, Yosano has become something of a comic book villain to some extent.
22. Rikka Takanashi (Chuunibyou)
Rikka Takanashi embodies a child’s “imagination” at its most exuberant.
She has magical powers and battles creatures from another realm in her own fantasy world. And to make a point, he’s got on an eye patch.
This, though, is where Chuunibyou is going with all of this. It’ll make you squirm and chuckle at the same time, making you both uncomfortable and giggle. Chuunibyou is a great Kyoani series because of the chemistry between Rikka and Yuta.
In her own peculiar way, Rikka is relatable.
23. Saya Sasamiya (Asterisk War)
In the anime series Asterisk War, Saya Sasamiya is the sluggish, sleepy-eyed anime girl. The protagonist’s best buddy, Ayato Amagiri.
Saya’s father is a tech whiz who spends a lot of time inventing new gadgets. That’s why Saya’s so intrigued by the whole thing.
In the anime, her special weapon is a gun, which she wields during competitions.
The primary driver behind her decision to participate is her father.
24. Hotaru Shidare (Dagashi Kashi)
Despite the fact that this aspect of Hotaru Shidare is absent from Dagashi Kashi, she is a successful businesswoman. In the anime series, she helps operate a Dagashi (cheap Japanese sweets) business.
Her piercing blue eyes and distinct style set her apart from the majority of 2019’s anime girls.
25. Ichigo (Darling In The Franxx)
Ichigo. Darling in the Franxx fans will recognize this chick, right?
After all, it was because of her that the anime generated so much controversy and outrage in 2018.
Of course, this outcry occurred in the United States, where SJW’s (those who don’t care about anime but enjoy pointing fingers) are prevalent.
Darling In The Franxx’s Ichigo isn’t a bad guy. However, as you continue to watch the anime, some of its best features begin to fade away.
Although she’s dependable like Erza Scarlet, she still stands out in the end.
26. Phos (Land Of The Lustrous)
In the anime, everyone hates Phos, who is the protagonist. In large part as a result of her reputation as a rule-defying rebel.
Plus, Phos is “different,” and she’s not hesitant to let everyone know it.
Phos is the only anime girl on this list with a design and intricacy that other anime heroines don’t possess. She’s a one-of-a-kind piece of art that can’t be compared to anything else.
27. Akane Tsunemori (Psycho Pass)
In Psycho Pass, rookie cop Akane Tsunemori shows maturity above his years. As a rule-follower, yet not afraid to defy them if they conflict with her values and convictions.
When it comes to her career, she’s neither greedy, narrow-minded, or a victim of “old thinking.” Because of this, she’s a crucial part of the story in Psycho Pass.
