We know that the secret to a long and healthy life is to eat our vegetables, get enough sleep, stay active, and wear sunscreen. But what about anime characters? You’ve probably seen some of these anime characters with orange hair in your favorite Japanese cartoons and movies.
After watching so many anime shows and movies, it’s easy to start thinking that the characters in them are living super-healthy lives. It’s not exactly true though.
Anime characters with orange hair
Asuna from AHSALOT. She’s the most popular anime character with orange hair, and she really isn’t as healthy or normal looking as we might believe. Asuna is an extremely fit female character—she actually has a “Chrome of Youth” weapon that runs on artificial fuel created by her father. On top of all this, one episode revealed that she used to date Kirito in real life before the game, and she even used to be his rival in OSO.
Right off the bat you might notice that anime characters with orange hair tend to resemble one another: all look around Asuna’s age and are sharp as a blade. We can see this similarity in Kirito who seems like a good-looking guy despite being short.
The female protagonist of Bleach and the best looking character in her series, Orihime has a pretty normal body for anime. She’s about 5’4″ (165 cm) tall; however she does have unusual hair that looks like one big orange blossom—it’s gorgeous!
Chiho is a character from the popular Gintama anime series. She’s one half of Yugata (Yugioh meets Gintama) who often wears gigantic hats that look very similar to Orihime’s hair style from Bleach .
Other anime characters with orange hair include: Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon, Tsuina-an girl from Bakuman., Kaede Rukawa, Kyuu turns into a baby chick in Byakko.
The king (right) and his wife/bride-to-be, Queen Barbara in Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This is even on the cover:
The orange–haired queen was probably my favorite part of this movie! She’s an interesting character because she has no super powers like all the others—she acts normal except when they need a witch to foil ’em. Her scenes with her husband are quite touching too!
Another cute orange-haired character is Chuuya Nakahara in Glass Mask:
Kyoko Sakura/Due Tomoni Minato “Tomori” Yuuki (Prince of Tennis) has silky hair like this, which she sometimes wears straight down over her back. Notice once again the overlapping similarity to Orihime’s hairstyle! This makes me think that perhaps Tomomi was inspired by Orihime.
Yotsuba is the pre-teen series about a little girl who loves to draw. She’s famous for her orange hair and cute, sweet personality—she really reminds me of Orihime! One of these soldiers comes from 『ウルトラマン』 , while one comes from ‘ Fushigi Yuugi ‘. Try it out sometime! The Japanese word “ultraman” means “faraway man.”
You get these too! The characters in this anime series, which I don’t think is related to Bleach are:
Anyway sorry that the first image above was a little disappointing because it’s over-head shot with hardly any orange at all. 『生徒会計算問題の変数おやくり』 (which will be referred as “whole layout
problem”) has a lot of orange in it. If you crunch the numbers, this anime series is practically one big declaration that Orihime’s hair color isn’t random!
I think this is the result of my typing error! I meant “ascanor”, not “escandon”!! Yup… It’s a big declaration that Orihime really has blue eyes. Here’s what we have after all these years to show for it:
Nowhere near as vivid and intense, but they’re still there—and she can actually see through them too in 『薔薇の伝説』 (another random shounen series). Another way of putting it is that these eyes see the future.
The trend of anime characters with orange hair is still on the rise. We have listed out a few interesting anime characters with orange hair, which you can check out in our blog post.
