Share:

Naturally, green hair never appears in real life in humans, but in anime, it appears occasionally alongside the almost mythological sky blue. This is also one of the colors with a large difference between female and male characters. Darker shades generally signify a layered character, usually troubled by something. Still, these characters tend to stick out and think of themselves as different and special, although not necessarily in a good way. In this article, we will bring a list of the 20 best green-haired anime characters we know of. We’ll be using different sources and rank them based on their popularity and the general level of awesomeness they represent. The list will be pretty diverse, including characters from various franchises and genres.
