    Anime Characters Characteristics

    Hi to all AOians ,a question came to my mind yesterday when i was watching "Kimi Ga Nozomou Eien" ,which is :
    - what do you prefer ,anime character's hair colors based on real life colors or imaginary ones?
    i mean some animes do not use hair colors that are not realistic ..
    i know it's quite a small thing ,but what do you think about it? what do you prefer? and why?
    For me i prefer non-realistic colors because it makes an anime well an anime! plus it's cooler and makes girls look as double hot as they're in most cases! and the same goes for guys! ( don't think about weird things ,i'm normal! )
    Life and Death are always one and the same

    It rarely bothers me but in realistic anime I prefer realistic hair/eye colours.

    It really doesn't matter to me unless you go overboard like SS4 Goku's three diffrent shades of eye color or Yugi's three diffrent hair colors.

    I believe…whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you…stranger.

    I like it if the hair color and style is a bit unrealistic this i think is what makes them more attractive and more challenging to the artist

    I, myself, prefer the unrealistic look better. One of the reasons I started watching anime was because the characters looked cool. and two of my favorite characters were Max and Miria from Robotech.

    I don't mind seeing vibrant hair colors and realistic ones, but i wouldn't look for something realistic on shows that aren't realistic at all. There are a few anime that follows a realistic path but still i don't mind the hair. Come to think of it, those hairstyles you see on anime is a growing trend in asian pop culture so we could also say that so far those hairstyles are making their way into reality.

    Back in anime's early days, the hair designs kinda followed(loosely) realistic hair colors and hairstyles but it became much more distorted over the years...Change blew its winds on anime and today we end up having characters with oddly beautiful hairstyles.

    In fact, hair has become one of the staples of design and identity that makes anime identified as anime.

    I like what fits with the show, if its realistic then I want real if its fantasy then fun hair is the way to go. Also all things in moderation. I think part of the appeal of anime though is the thought of being able to change the norm. Like in Japan there is so many with dark hair it is fun to imagine what ifs.
