Best Anime Girls With Black Hair
28. Nana Osaki, NANA
Nana Osaki is a beautiful yet striking punk-rock star who may look tough on the outside but actually has a kind heart.
Nana has short black hair and is 20 years old throughout the anime, which features a lot of dramatic and tough moments alongside her already tough past.
Although she can be difficult to get close to, Nana is a devoted friend and bandmate who is willing to go the distance for those she loves and cares for. She’s also one of the most fashionable anime girls with black hair!
27. Tsubaki Nakatsukasa, Soul Eater
Tsubaki is known as a mild-mannered and sensitive girl with long black hair that she keeps in a ponytail.
As the demon weapon for Meister Black Star, she is a quiet assassin with precise skill, yet her past haunts her and provides hesitation to her actions at times.
She’s also incredibly mature and level-headed and is one of the most so out of her friend group aside from Death the Kid. Tsubaki can even be forgiving to a fault, especially toward her brother, when she has no choice but to fight him.
Tsubaki enjoys seeing the good in others above all else, which is one of many reasons she is a best girl in anime.
26. IbukiMioda, Danganronpa 3
IbukiMioda is a fun and quirky student at Hope’s Peak Academy as the Ultimate Musician. She comes across as bold and outgoing to most, even to the point of being annoying sometimes.
Ibuki always puts her most energetic foot forward but can also get easily discouraged and can forget important things easily.
What makes Ibuki such a best girl is her deeply caring nature toward her friends and her intense respect for expressing individuality.
Out of any characters in the series, Ibuki has always been one to tell others to be themselves because of how important it is in this temporary world.
25. Maki Oze, Fire Force
This is a pretty intriguing pick because there are 2 black-haired girls in Company 8 of Fire Force. One is the Third Generation fire soldier, who is a little pervy on her own named Tamaki Kotatsu. And the other one is Maki Oze.
Personally, just by knowing what kind of person Tamaki is, it’s best if she’s not part of the list. Maki Oze is pretty great and tougher than most men in the Force despite being just a Second Generation fire soldier.
By herself, she’s already awesome with her undisputable fighting skills thanks to her muscular build. But then Vulcan Joseph shows up and makes her even more valuable asset thanks to fashioning customized iron owls for her fire spirits!
But despite her rough exterior, she’s a hopeless romantic and is really sensitive to how people perceive her.
24. Honjou Kaede, Itai no wa Iya nano de Bōgyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu
You will lose count of how many times you do a facepalm while watching Kaede satisfy her curiosity. She is very bizarre as if she has a higher regard for her curiosity than her safety.
Fortunately, her questionable moves almost always gain the skills that make her a better fighter — or defender, because that’s her main focus, anyway.
23. Yuuko Ichihara, xxxHOLic
At first, many fans of Clamp’s xxxHoLic get really confused with the eccentric character of Yuuko Ichihara.
She usually doesn’t want to get involved in most situations, but then we see just how important her interventions are in the end.
Although she’s proven to be very wise, her resolutions only prove to be prudent after some time. However, we get to see a different side of Yuuko when she interacts with her actual friends.
She becomes kind and talks to them more openly about things. And come on, just look at her pretty face!
22. Yumeko Jabami, Kakegurui
Jabami Yumeko is a crazy girl. Good, beautiful, but crazy nonetheless. She’s the epitome of a gambling addict who seeks the pleasures and pitfalls of winning and really does not care what she puts on the table for it.
As a result, she can think clearly and usually wins games with ease… which attracts the attention of the entire student body of Hyakkaou Private Academy within a day of her transfer.
However, Yumeko is unforgiving for any instance of cheating that she witnesses while gambling.
So that smiling and carefree face of hers immediately transforms into that of a bloodthirsty demon whenever it happens.
21. Sango, InuYasha
Her luscious black hair is not the only thing to be admired about this demon slayer.
She’s an aggressive fighter and a compassionate ally and is capable of incredibly selfless love when it comes to her younger cowardly brother, Kohaku.
Her logical, calculating, and savage ways come in stark contrast to when she started catching feelings for her companion, Miroku.
Her frequent run-ins with anger and jealousy show that she’s not as emotionless as you’d think she is at first.
20. Ruri Gokou, Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
Ruri Gokou, or just Kuroneko at first, can be seen somewhat as a snob. That’s because of her choice to act like a character to completely hide her social insecurity, which meant she’s a really shy girl deep down and can’t hold a conversation with any stranger.
But throughout the series, we can see a slow improvement of her communication skills as she stops relying on her otaku persona to make friends.
Plus, we also see a charming side to her when we see Kuroneko at home being such a great older sister, who can cook, sew, and tend to the rest of her siblings.
19. Rin Tohsaka, Fate Stay Night
Rin Tohsaka might look like a typical tsundere, but she is much more than that.
We all agree that she busts a fuse more often than we would like, but we can’t deny how likable her character is for her determination to prove herself and her obvious independence.
She’s proud, diligent, hard-working, and hard on herself to a certain degree.
While those are not necessarily good characteristics, these are important traits that one must have to succeed in life.
18. Himeko Inaba, Kokoro Connect
The thing that makes Himeko irresistible is the fact that she’s rough around the edges. Compared to other members of the Cultural Club, she has a short fuse and an impossible intolerance for mess.
She likes to appear powerful, which is why she often uses masculine expressions and vulgar speech. She is regarded as a tomboy, which is ironic because her name literally translates to ‘princess child.’
In any case, Himeko and her unconventional ways will surely steal your heart.
17. Kamiya Kaoru, Samurai X
Kaoru is easily one of the most recognizable anime leads ever, being the wife of the legendary Kenshin Himura.
Her sleek black hair is almost always pulled back by a dark-colored ponytail to keep her face obstruction-free while she practices kenjutsu.
When she’s not engaged in martial arts, though, Kaoru wears her beautiful hair with large, colorful ribbons, including her favorite indigo-blue hair tie.
16. Shana, Shakugan no Shana
Shana from Shakugan no Shana joins this list, although her hair can technically turn into flaming red.
But her regular hair is black, so it counts! Shana is another tsundere on this list, quick to anger and all, but ultimately becomes quite warm and jovial to the person she likes.
The best part? Well, she’s simply the best flame haze there is, and her abilities as a swordsman are second to none!
15. Kurome, Akame Ga Kill
Her black eyes and black hair might mislead you into thinking that Kurome is a basic lady who deserves scant attention.
Still, it would be a big mistake to discount her because of these attributes. If you let your guard down, this assassin will come for you.
Don’t mistake her social awkwardness, aloof ways, and big appetite as signs of weakness because she will come for anyone who underestimates her and her fighting skills.
14. Mei Misaki, Another
Misaki Mei is one of the most misunderstood anime characters ever, at least in the story in the beginning. She’s a pariah, and she’s emotional. The fact that she’s subjected to bullying is too bad.
I feel like if she just studied in a different school and all, everything would turn out better for her.
While she does have creepy tastes in dolls, she’s generally nice and even has a childish side, which is kinda cute.
13. Mayuri Shiina, Steins; Gate
Mayuri’s childish and naive ways make her irresistibly adorable.
She is very fond of cute things like plushies and cushions and gives everyone she meets — strangers, too — cute nicknames she thinks they should have.
12. Yukino Yukinoshita, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru
Yukino is one of the most divisive black-haired characters ever.
She may be beautiful and smart, not to mention wealthy, but she’s also not that fun to be around with because she’s very frank and quite tactless when pointing out other people’s shortcomings.
In fact, Hachiman likes calling her the “Ice Queen” because of her very cold demeanor.
Later on in the series, though, she showcased impressive character development, and she suddenly manifested her girly and clumsy side, which made her a bit less insufferable.
11. Kurumi Tokisaki, Date A Live
Kurumi is considered as the worst, most dangerous spirit known to man. She has reportedly killed more than 10,000 people all by herself.
Interestingly, she has impeccable acting skills, which allows her to put on the facade of a curious and innocent schoolgirl to hide the fact that she’s one of the most dangerous killers around, especially with her general dislike and mistrust of humanity.
When she’s not hiding underneath this facade, though, she’s a pure madwoman who has zero regards for human life.
10. Akame, Akame ga Kill
Akame, the titular heroine of Akame ga Kill, is an anti-hero as anti-hero can get. She might seem coldhearted and very serious, but you will soon realize that she’s just mostly awkward and socially inept.
She despises the war her generation is engaged in and is constantly worried that one of her friends might not make it out alive.
Another reason Akame is vastly misunderstood is her penchant for hiding her emotions even when a comrade succumbs to the frailties of war.
People think she is impervious to grief and has an easy time moving on when losing a friend, but her pain is very much real and valid even though she appears to be just fine.
9. Suzune Horikita, Classroom of the Elite
Being the younger sister of Manabu Horikita, Suzune only has one thing in mind: getting into class A. Manabu is the straight As a student and the student body president at the Advanced Nurturing High school.
However, nobody really knows that he has a sister due to the fact that Suzune is in D-class, which is the lowest of the sections.
So Suzune, in an attempt to be as successful as her brother, has ditched all social conventions and does everything in her power to be among the top. Although, the ironic thing is, the reason why she’s in the lowest class isn’t because of her academic ability, but her reluctance to work with others.
Thankfully, later on, Suzune gets a change of heart for the better.
8. Homura Akemi, Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Homura Akemi is the ever-loyal best friend to Madoka Kaname. However, that’s not all there is to Akemi because she’s written in an absolutely incredible way!
Think about this. The mangaka gave much effort into making 2 personalities for this support character.
First, Akemi is known to be heartless. She’s aloof and introverted and pretty much intimidates everyone who comes into close contact with her.
In contrast is her second personality: someone who is scared, lonely, and literally asking for help. Perhaps this is the reason why so many others like her!
7. Sawako Kuronuma, Kimi ni Todoke
One look at Sawako Kuronuma, and you’d immediately think she looks quite familiar. She’s actually known to be someone that looks a lot like the classic horror film girl named Sadako (who incidentally also sounds a lot like her name).
That’s why everyone just pretty much fears her in school. So if you think about it, Sawako’s jet black long hair is the one causing all the troubles for the poor girl.
But beyond her menacing looks, she’s a pretty nice lady who’s soft-spoken and shy. Thankfully, we get to see her make new friends and even get a boyfriend in Kimi ni Todoke, too!
6. Nico Robin, One Piece
The ever-reliable archaeologist of the Straw Hat Pirates has shoulder-length black hair and very long limbs, which make her a skilled fighter.
Compared to her crewmates and every other character in the series, Robin is the most level-headed and is almost never seen acting comically.
Compared to Nami, she also respects Luffy’s leadership more and is 100% supportive of their captain’s decisions.
She is wise and patient and a great asset to the Strawhats even though she doesn’t really have a specific role in their ship.
5. Hinata Hyuga, Naruto
Probably the best thought-out character in Naruto, no one would have expected that Hinata would achieve everything she did, especially since she started out as a meek young girl who seemed undeserving of being the heir to the Hyuga clan.
She worked harder than everyone else to prove that she is indeed worthy of her lineage and ended up being the wife of the titular lead, as well as the caring and loving mother to Boruto, who now has his own anime to speak of — sort of.
4. Rukia Kuchiki, Bleach
Rukia Kuchiki has gone through a lot of difficulties as a lower-class shinigami at the start of the series.
Honestly, in the beginning, there wasn’t a lot going on for Rukia. But now, she’s already the captain of the 13th division, so that’s awesome!
She’s very skilled, and of course, she should take credit for turning Ichigo Kurosaki into a shinigami.
So the only reason she’s just number 4 is the fact that she’s reserved and can’t really interact with the rest of the characters in a friendly manner, although she’s pretty good at acting, too.
3. Mio Akiyama, K-On!
Mio Akiyama is undeniably one of the most beloved members of the Light Music Club. She’s a typical shy girl with a kind heart that only wants to support her friends the best way she can.
This fact is also evident not just through the way she acts and the way her bangs hide her eyes when she’s feeling shy, but also through her musical instrument choice.
Yes, Mio Akiyama is the club’s bassist, who provides both the foundations for rhythm and harmony. And we all know how important that is for a band, am I right?
2. Enma Ai, Jigoku Shoujo
Pale skin and long, straight black hair have never looked better than it did with Enma Ai, who was so badass she was buried alive. She is called ‘Hell Girl’ because of this and the fact that she was locked up for a long time.
It may be because of this experience that she gained her cold, emotionless demeanor at first.
In time, though, she learned how to channel her inner feelings to guide her actions. Still, this just makes her a lot more ruthless when seeking revenge and forcing people to Hell, whether or not they deserve it.
Truly, she’s one black-haired chick you should never cross.
1. Mikasa Ackerman, Attack on Titan
Mikasa Ackerman is the top anime girl with black hair because she’s fearless, she’s sensible, and she’s like the secret protagonist of the Attack on Titan series.
I mean, she’s pretty much Hermione to Harry Potter when it comes to Eren Jaeger without the love life bit, obviously. Eren is a crybaby who gets really emotional even when things aren’t that bad yet, and Mikasa comes to the rescue.
She’s the best new Survey Corps member and graduated top of the class thanks to her effortless skill and her cold stare.
If anything, the only thing bad about her is the fact that she’s madly in love with Eren…, but that’s the reason why she’s such a badass in the first place, so we can definitely roll with that.
That wraps up our list of 25 anime girls who have made black hair cool again.
