The Not-So-Colourless White/Silver Hair Characters

Throughout my years of watching anime, I’ve noticed how I was drawn to characters with white/silver hair. I don’t think I know of a character with this hair colour who was not attractive (aside from characters who actually have white, greying hair due to age of course). I think this hair colour just gives characters a mysterious, ethereal charm, along with their entertaining personalities. You will notice that this list only contains male characters. I know that there are plenty of great female characters with this hair colour too, but I’m not as drawn to them. So without further ado, here are my current favorite characters with beautiful fair hair:

*I’ve linked the summaries to the titles for those who are not familiar with any of the series discussed below

Inuyasha-full-body

Inuyasha (InuYasha): Inuyasha is half human and half demon who partners up with a human to gather the shards of the Sacred Jewel in order to fulfill his desire of becoming a full demon. InuYasha is one of my favorite animes and also the catalyst of my white/silver hair bias. Although riddled with flaws, Inuyasha is still a dynamic and admirable character. He’s funny, strong, and protects Kagome with all he’s got. I really enjoyed watching him every episode.Tomoe

Tomoe (Kamisama Hajimemashita): A fox yokai turned familiar who serves the new land god, Nanami. He is the definition of loyal. Even when the previous land god left for 20 years, he kept up the maintenance of the shrine and waited for the land god to come back. Furthermore, I really like his aloof personality, and when he shows his caring side, especially when it comes to Nanami, it just melts my heart. Also, I can’t forget to mention how great he looks with long hair!

Mizuki

Mizuki (Kamisama Hajimemashita): This anime would not be the same without Mizuki. He is a divine white snake who was shrouded with loneliness after his land god perished; however, after meeting Nanami, she relieved him from his lonesome state which eventually lead him to voluntarily becoming her familiar. Mizuki is a great character. Although he can be manipulative, his innocent, child-like self is so entertaining to watch. He also has a good sense of responsibility and loyalty. I enjoy his interactions with Nanami and Tomoe. Personally, the most memorable scene he’s in is when he’s practicing playing on the flute to accompany Nanami’s Kagura dance practice, but he can’t even make a sound! It had me in stitches! Here’s the clip, but I think it’s funnier within the context of the episode.

Gin

Gin (Hotarubi no Mori e): It still breaks my heart when I think of Gin. Gin was abandoned in a forest when he was a baby. Taking pity on him, the forest lord casts a spell to save his life by making Gin’s body age slower than a normal human; however, if ever he comes into physical contact with another human, the spell would break, and he would disappear. It’s such a sad and cruel cost when Gin is such a sweetheart. Watching him is a breath of fresh air. He’s kind of like the boy-next-door. He would be one of my main reasons to rewatch the movie.

shiro

Shiro (K-project): a.k.a Yashiro Isana. He is the main protagonist in the series, and the moment he was introduced to the screen, I liked him immediately. He has an eccentric personality, and later in the show, he becomes a pretty impressive character. Due to his whimsical but kindhearted nature, he is a likeable character, not only to me, but to the other characters in the show as well.

03._Hayato_Gokudera

Gokudera Hayato (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!): What drives Gokudera is his ambition to become the right-hand man of the 10th generation boss of the Vongola Family, Tsuna. And that ambition is what makes him such an interesting character. As a loyal character, he fights with everything he has for the Vongola Family and his comrades. Although he has a bad boy demeanor, he is one of the smartest guys in the gang. I think he is quite the charming character.


Thank you for reading! I’d love to know who your favorite white/silver hair characters are!

Animes That Are Just Not My Cup of Tea

I’m going to over generalize and say that everyone has probably drank something that wasn’t their cup of tea, so instead of gulping down the whole cup, they eat the biscuits instead and forget about the tea. A similar scenario can be said for animes. As an avid anime watcher, this is a pretty common decision for me. I admit that I’m guilty of dropping animes quicker than drinking tea. Here’s a few of the animes that I have dropped recently in no particular order:

Dance With Devils

I was excited to see good-looking characters, but then they started singing, and that’s when I said sayonara, ganbatte. I just found it too cheesy for my taste—not that I have anything against musicals. This one just wasn’t for me.

Dropped: Ep 1

log-horizon-2014

Log Horizon 2nd Season

I really liked the first season, and I found the beginning of the second season still interesting. However, I think it was towards the end that I just couldn’t find the motivation to press play anymore. I didn’t really think the focus on Akatsuki was particularly interesting.

Dropped: Ep 14

mekakucity-actors Mekakucity Actors

I liked the visuals and it was interesting-ish, but something about it just made me reluctant to start the next episode. It might be because there was too much techy stuff going on in the first episode and my attention just wasn’t there.

Dropped: Ep 1

Diabolic Lovers  diabolik-lovers

I actually gave this one a second chance. I got further into it than on my first try, but there was just too much s&m kind of vibe going on that I got a bit uncomfortable watching anymore of it. Mainly, I tried watching it because of how good looking the characters are, but dang, why they gotta be so sadistic?

Dropped: Ep 7

Tokyo Ravens  tokyo-ravens

The poster incited me to watch this, but then I was disappointed by the character design of the main protagonist during the show. Also, the beginning of the first episode didn’t hook me at all and I wasn’t really looking forward to anything else, so I decided to cut my losses and move on.

Dropped: Ep 1

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar  hai-to-gensou-no-grimgar___otuupeblfj

It maybe because I was just fed up with the game genre around the time I started to watch this, or because starting an episode with the protagonist waking up in a different world was beginning to be too generic in my books, but the first episode just didn’t spark up any enthusiasm in me.

Dropped: Ep 1

On Trial:

zankyou-no-terrorZankyou No Terror

I kind of want to know what happens in the end, yet I don’t really care at the same time. I think the depression in this anime is getting to me which just makes me reluctant to keep watching. I’m not really a fan of Lisa, but I heard that there’s some romance between her and one of the members in Sphinx which is my main motivation to tough it out and finish this anime.

Currently on Ep 6

No Game No Life no-game-no-life

This series is starting to become too humdrum. I don’t have any particular interest in the characters. I think the fan service in this is redundant, especially with Shiro’s. I don’t know why there’s a need to sexualize an 11 years-old. However, I’m still considering on finishing it because I’m curious about how their game with the Warbeasts will turn out.

Currently on Ep 9

shouwa-genroku-rakugo-shinjuu___tecodegtyr Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

I’ve put this on hold for awhile because I was waiting for the next episode to come out. But, then I don’t find myself wanting to go back to it, yet I know it’s a good series. So my mind is a little bit contradictory about whether to continue or not to continue. Maybe when I’m in the mood I will turn to this anime and finish what I started.

Currently on Ep 2
