Several lists have been compiled in which the best female anime characters are ranked according to the color of their hair. Read on to see whether any of your preferences made the cut. So, here is a list of the best red-haired anime characters.

12. Shirayuki, Akagami no Shirayukihime (2015)

Shirayuki, Akagami no Shirayukihime (2015)

The main character of the anime ‘Akagami no Shirayukihime’ is Shirayuki. Named after a genuine white snowflake. She’s a gifted young lady with knowledge in botany and medicine. When she’s not making herbal remedies, you may find her working as an apothecary. Her striking good looks aren’t the only thing drawing attention to her; her lusciously long red hair is an added bonus. Prince Raji, her country’s prince, takes an interest in her right away. A concubine is what he seeks from her. She knows she can’t deny the prince, so she flees to the adjacent nation, where she meets prince Zen, and falls in love with him instantly. Shirayuki applies for and is hired as a palace pharmacist in that country after they become friends. As a strong female lead with a wide range of skills and knowledge, Shirayuki stands out from the crowd.

11. Ranma Saotome, Ranma ½ (1989)

Ranma Saotome, Ranma ½ (1989)

While compiling this list, I almost forgot about Ranma Saotome. I mean, I don’t know. Ranma was a bit of a conundrum for me to include in this list. In the martial arts-themed anime series “Ranma 12,” Ranma is actually the male protagonist. Let me clear up any misconceptions you may have regarding Ranma’s gender identity before you start lecturing me about gender equality. As it turns out, while practicing in China with his father, he and Ranma fell into a cursed spring, changing the course of his life forever. A cold splash of water causes him to transform into a female. He needs to be sprayed with hot water to get his clothes back on (As much as I would have loved to, I did not make that up, see the series for yourself). You can see where I’m at now, can’t you? In any case, I’ve decided to throw caution to the wind and include Ranma here.

10. Shana, Shakugan no Shana (2005)

Shana, Shakugan no Shana (2005)

The protagonist of the anime series “Shakugan no Shana” is coming up next. Flame Haze, extraordinary hunters that battle cruel murders known as Crimson Denizens, have immortality because of their training. Immortality prevents her body from aging, giving her the appearance of a young child. Her hair is a fiery red and her eyes are brown; she has a fair skin tone. Shana’s hair is actually black, despite the fact that I mentioned she had blood red hair that qualifies her for the list. The color of her hair and pupils turn to crimson when she enters her power mode. Shana excels in both academics and physical education, making her an excellent student.

Youko is a kind and generous student who is always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need among her peers. Despite all of this, she still doesn’t feel like she belongs. The reason for this is due of her red hair. I mean, come on! In my book, that’s equivalent to being named Miss Universe, because of her fiery red locks. A man enters the classroom and salutes her, and her life is forever changed. The fact that she is a princess and the heir apparent to the kingdom of Kei was revealed to her later on.
