ANIME GUY RED HAIR: What anime characters have red hair?


I love red hair. I’m not sure why, but it’s always been my favorite color. That being said, as an anime fan, I wanted to know how many anime characters share my affinity for this fiery hue. So I did a little research and came up with some surprising results!

Atsushi Nakajima from Boku no Hero Academia

Atsushi Nakajima is a character in the anime Boku no Hero Academia. He is a student at U.A. High School and a member of the hero team “Plus Ultra”. He also happens to be one of the main characters in this series, so if you want to know more about him then check out our article on all things Atsushi Nakajima!

Takumi Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama

Takumi Usui is the main male protagonist of the Kaichou wa Maid-sama! series. He is a student at the Private Ariadne Academy and is in the same class as Misaki Ayuzawa. He is a second year student in his class during junior high school, but he transfers to Seika High School with Misaki when she becomes a teacher there (though he doesn’t know this at first).

Takumi has red hair that reaches down to his shoulders, though it’s usually worn up in a ponytail when he isn’t wearing his school uniform or working as an assistant chef at Maid Latte. When not wearing anything on his head, he has two long bangs hanging down on either side of him neck; they’re parted slightly off center so they don’t cover up any part of his face except maybe some cheekbones depending on how far apart they’re parted from each other

Tetsuya Kuroko from Kuroko no Basket

Tetsuya Kuroko is a member of the Generation of Miracles, and he’s known as the Phantom Sixth Man. He has the ability to teleport, making him an excellent defender on court. While he may not be able to score many points himself, his presence on defense makes him indispensable for Seirin High School (Seirin) during their match against Touou Academy (Touou).

Kuroko is very loyal to his teammates, especially Kagami Taiga–who also plays for Seirin–and Aomine Daiki; however, he often has trouble communicating with others because he doesn’t want them getting involved in any kind of trouble involving his teammates’ powers or pasts.

Raku Ichijou from Nisekoi

Raku Ichijou is the main character of Nisekoi. He’s a high school student who lives with his father and mother in Chiba, Japan. He has a crush on Kosaki Onodera but doesn’t know how to tell her how he feels.

Raku’s best friend is Shuu Maiko, who also has feelings for him (although she won’t admit it). She likes to tease him about girls he may like or have dated in the past including Chitoge Kirisaki and Marika Tachibana.

Kurumi Oribe from Assassination Classroom

Kurumi Oribe is one of the main characters in the Assassination Classroom manga and anime. She is a third-year student at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, where she is also student council president.

Her parents were killed during an experiment when she was five years old, so she has no memories from before that time; however, she does remember her mother’s last words to her: “Your father made me promise something before he left.” This prompts Kurumi to make it her goal in life to find out what this promise was about and why her mother was so important to him

Yukiteru Amano from Future Diary/Mirai Nikki

Yukiteru Amano is a high school student who finds himself caught up in the middle of a war between twelve diary owners. He is given a diary by a strange girl named Yuno Gasai and told that he must keep it with him at all times, or else she will die. This begins his journey into discovering more about his future, which includes dying multiple times over and having to fight for his life against other diary owners who want nothing more than to take down Yukiteru and Yuno.
