In the world of anime, sporting bright pink locks, dark green curls, or even rainbow mohawks are never looked upon as weird; on the contrary, it’s deemed as usual. Even when the setting of a story is in a rural Japanese town in the middle of nowhere, it’s still normal.
We get it; it’s hard to tell anime characters apart sometimes when they all look like high school teenagers with big googly eyes. So, that’s why hair color slowly became a method of telling the characters apart from each other.
By now, you’ve probably seen your fair share of characters with crazy hair colors encompassing the entire color chart, all the way to the most inconspicuous spectrum. However, do you remember any of the ones with black hair? Or, were they too discreet to leave a mark.
We’re here to fix that by sharing a list featuring the most popular anime girls with black hair to remind you that black is still and will always be in!
Best Black-Haired Anime Girls of 2022
43. Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
Spunky, loyal, and fierce – that is Rukia Kuchiki in three words. Thanks to Rukia, protagonist Kurosaki Ichigo would not have turned into a Shinigami. We have her to thank for the entire Bleach series.
Rukia is the Captain of the 13th Division in Soul Society. Her petite stature, slightly androgynous hairstyle, and black hair can easily mistake her into a young boy. If you’ve watched enough episodes of Bleach, you’ve probably asked yourself if the strands of hair between her eyes ever get in the way of fights.
42. Sonohara Anri (Durarara!!)
As Sonohara Anri once said in Durarara!!, “I am lacking in many ways. So I must fill the gaps of what I’m missing… I’m a parasite. I live off of all kinds of things.” However, Anri doesn’t seem to lack that much popularity from the opposite sex, much to her dismay.
Anri is a petite high school girl with a voluptuous figure. Her bobbed black hair, fair skin, and glasses add to her appeal. Despite shunning herself from her peers and enjoying her solitude, Anri is a clever and resourceful girl. Her shy behavior and trouble expressing herself to others stem from past trauma.
41. Kiryuuin Satsuki (Kill la Kill)
With a perpetual scowl on her face, the President of Honnouji Academy’s Student Council is a force to be reckoned with. As the main antagonist in Kill la Kill for the first half of the series, Satsuki redeems herself in the latter part of the story.
Satsuki has a tall figure and thigh-length dark black hair. Her diamond-shaped bangs that fall towards the crease of her nose are one of her defining features. Lady Satsuki’s dark black hair brings out her blue eyes. The 18-year old rules with an iron fist and is regarded by many in the academy with the utmost respect.
40. Sawako Kuronuma (Kimi ni Todoke)
Shunned by her classmates for her “resemblance” to Sadako from The Ring, Kuronuma Sawako gets treated as an anomaly. However, she’s far from the horror film’s well-climbing ghost. Socially awkward Sawako is a beautiful young girl with jet black hair that falls to her waist. She has a slim figure, pale skin, and gorgeous brown eyes.
All Sawako wants is to make friends. However, her inability to express herself to her peers causes a rumor to travel that she’s bad luck. Then comes everyone’s friend and the school’s prince charming, Shouta Kazehaya. You know what happens next. If not, time to watch Kimi ni Todoke.
39. Yaoyorozu Momo (My Hero Academia)
A born leader, Yaoyorozu Momo from My Hero Academia, is the Vice President of Class 1-A at U.A. High School, the top hero academy in Japan. Momo’s alias is called Everything Hero: Creati, and she has the unique ability to alter the molecular structure of her fat cells into any non-living object.
Because her ability requires a fair amount of fat cells in her body, Momo has to maintain a healthy figure. Tall and with long black hair tied into a spiky ponytail, Momo’s easy to spot from miles away. With a look that will get anything done, Momo is adored by everyone around her.
38. Kurumi Tokisaki (Date A Live)
Known as the Worst Spirit, Kurumi Tokisaki is a cunning deity you don’t want to mess with. In the Date A Live series, she was the first antagonist spirit to appear. Shido Itsuka described Kurumi as a girl with captivating beauty.
She has flowy black hair that falls over her waist. Her hair is always tied in a ponytail that sits elegantly on her shoulders. One side of her hair falls to her face and covers her left golden eye. Kurumi is one of those people that is difficult to read; it will take years to understand what’s going on in her head. Though her personality may seem psychotic at times, she still has hints of innocence hiding underneath her savage nature.
37. Utako Sakura (Hinamatsuri)
Next on our list is Utako Sakura, a spirited young woman with a sharp tongue. In the series Hinamatsuri, Utako is a supporting character with a knack for getting things done her way. Many times, she’s portrayed as someone who manipulates the situation around her for her own good. Yoshifumi Nitta, the Yakuza protagonist of the series, says Utako is scarier than his kin.
Utako is mainly seen wearing a bartender’s outfit with her black hair tied up in a high ponytail. On either side of her face, strands of her hair rest neatly. Utako becomes Nitta’s love interest in the series, but that doesn’t last. We wonder why.
36. Shiba Miyuki (The Irregular At Magic High School)
Loved by all, hated by none – that’s Shiba Miyuki. She’s the main female protagonist in the anime The Irregular At Magic High School and is seen mainly around her brother Shiba Tatsuya. In the manga, Miyuki describes her hair as “a shade of black too deep.” Her silky black hair looks like she’s come out of the salon every day.
Miyuki is modest and not one to raise her voice; she’s the epitome of a true lady. Although it’s hinted that her soft side for her brother might be more than familial love, we don’t know for sure. As a First High School Student, Miyuki’s adored by the entire student body. It’s easy to see why.
35. Ryuuko Matoi (Kill la Kill)
If you have Ryuuko Matoi from Kill la Kill on your side, you know you’ll have nothing to fear.

Although she never loses her cool, Kasumi has a “dark side” that appears when things get serious or she’s angry. Many times competitions or playing games bring out this switch. Immediately, her meek personality disappears, and out comes an intimidating young girl with a violent and sadistic side. Even Kasumi’s friends are scared of the Dark Kasumi.
32. Himeko Inaba (Kokoro Connect)

Charmy has green eyes and shoulder-length black hair that she wears in an upside-down bun. Her cute hairstyle slightly makes her forehead a bit bigger than usual.

23. Tamaki Kotatsu (Fire Force)
Clumsy, loud, and always finding herself in embarrassing situations, Tamaki Kotatsu from the series Fire Force is a Second Class Fire Soldier.

Her wavy black hair is tied into a neat bun adorned with a butterfly ornament. Shinobu’s bangs fall on either side of her face and have dark purple highlights that complement her purple eyes. Currently, she’s considered the Insect Hashira, making sense why her pupil-lacking eyes resemble an insect.
17. Sakurajima Mai (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai)
Because of Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, it’s hard not to picture heroine Sakurajima Mai in a bunny outfit; the two are now synonymous.
