Would you like to know more about red haired anime girls? In that case, all you have to do is to carry on reading...there is certainly something special about this most vibrant of colors.
Check out these 20 red haired anime girls and let us know what you think.
1. Yoko Littner - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
In the series Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Yoko Littner is a 14 year old female. That makes her one of the youngest female anime heroes. Despite her young age, she can handle an impressive range of firearms.
Looking at her, it is hard to believe that this red haired anime girl is a sniper.
Not only is her personality mesmerizing, but her looks are as well. Many anime fans think that with her long red hair, she is one of the hottest looking anime girls.
She has a gorgeous voluptuous figure that men like to feast their eyes on. All of these factors combined, make her perhaps the sexiest looking protagonist in anime.
2. Maki Nishikino - Love Live School Idol Project
Maki Nishikino is a top character in anime. You can catch up with her adventures in the anime series Love Live School Idol Project! She is a student at Otonokizaka High School, and as you will soon notice, her favorite color is red.
Personality wise, she loves being a bit of a busy body. Maki is a member of the BiBi and, on top of that, she is the vice-president of the Idol Research Club.
Unlike many other anime characters, she comes from a wealthy family. Her family is one of the richest families in Japan and owns several hospitals.
Some say that Make is a bit of a spoiled girl. That can easily happen when you are an only child. But, despite that, you have to love this vibrant red head.
3. Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail
Erza Scarlet is perhaps the most popular red haired anime girls in the series Fairy Tail. Despite having been around for some time, Fairy Tail is one of the most popular anime series.
If you want to check out hot anime girls with red hair, this is the series for you.
Erza has a lovely figure that she loves to show off. In the series, Erza scarlet often wears a short skirt with a pair of black boots.
She is one of the more interesting anime characters, and if you like anime girls with red hair, she may just be the right one for you.
4. Youko Nakajima - The Twelve Kingdoms
Youko is one of those anime girls with red hair that leads a complicated life. When we first meet her, she is a 16 year old student at a Japanese high school.
However, this quickly changes in the beginning of the series.
Like so many other red haired characters, she goes on many adventures, but finally we found out that she is a ruler of a kingdom called Kei.
If you ever get a chance to watch The Twelve Kingdoms of the Seas, it is an opportunity you should not miss out on.
5. Rias Gremory - High School DxD
Rias Gremory is the top protagonist in the anime High School DxD. The flaming red head is one the top hottest girls on this list of red haired anime girls.
Rias is well known for wearing tops that make her generous bosom more or less pop out. There is something special about her. She certainly has the most intense eyes out of all of the anime girls with red hair.
6. Shana - Shakugan No Shana
Shana from Shakugan No Shana is yet another red haired protagonist that you would probably love to take out on dates. With her flaming red hair and master sword skills, she is one of the more interesting characters that you will come across in any anime series.
On this list, she is the girl with the worst temper. When upset, or made angry, she immediately starts to shut at everyone to shut up.
Personality wise not the most pleasant long red haired anime girl, but certainly an interesting person.
7. Mito Jujo - Owari no Seraph
Mito Jujo from Owari no Seraph is a red haired anime girl who is one of my favorite of my anime girls with red hair list.
She looks like she likes to be in charge, and I guess some would say that is a good thing when you are the Colonel of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army.
Her anime personality is pretty unique. Out of the girls with red hair, she is not known for her patience.
8. Lilith Asami - Trinity Seven
Lilith Asami is both a teacher and a librarian. She not like any teacher I ever met at my school.
For the main part, I can´t remember have any red haired teachers, let alone any teachers who could do magic like Lilith.
Some anime characters are more interesting than others and I think that is true of Lilith.
In the series Trinity Seven, she discovers the existence of demon lord Arata Kasuga and teaches him magic. As far as I am concerned, she is one of the top interesting anime girls with red hair.
9. Flare Corona - Fairy Tail
Flare Corona is one of the most beautiful girls on my list of anime girls with red hair. She has been my favorite for a very long time.
Flare has very long red hair. Also, she dresses in a very provocative way which I think some people will appreciate.
The name Flare suits her perfectly. She certainly looks like a flare and is a real screen siren.
10. Kushina Uzumaki - Naruto Shippuden
I feel a bit sorry for Kushina Uzumaki from Naruto. When she was young, not all of the other children in the much loved series Naruto, believed that she had the right to be Hokage.
As a matter of fact, they love to call her Tomato. Her snow white complexion sets of her long red hair. Over time, she has become one of the top characters in Naruto and deservingly so.
11. Miss Kobayashi - Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
Have you ever watched the Dragon´s Maid series? Yes, I know that anime series such Cowboy Bebop and Game No Life are popular, but I also like some of the more rare series.
Miss Kobayashi is a red hair with spectacles. She always wears her red hair in a pony tail.
Many of the other characters in the cast of this series are also interesting, but if you are looking for someone who is a bit different, she is the perfect choice on this list of red haired anime girls.
12. Kurisu Makise - Steins Gate
It is often said that Kurisu Makise has brown hair but her hair color looks red to me. I guess sometimes girls like to change their hair colors.
On my list, it would be fair to say that Kurisu is the smartest female character you are going to come across. She graduates from university when she is only 17 years old!
If you would like to catch up with her, you can do so in the Steins Gate series or the movie by the same name which is also often called Load Region Deja Vu.
13. Shura Kirigakure - Ao no Exorcist
When you watch the Blue Exorcist, you are not going to be able to miss Ahura. She is the sort of character who would make a really tough girlfriend.
It would be fair to say that Shura has a pretty badass personality but love life. Great character but hard to figure out at times.
But, on the flipside, it has to be said that she is a good undercover agent. Maybe not your dream waifu or a member of some Japanese Imperial family, but she is certainly a pretty young babe with red hair.
14. Miu Amano - Blend S
Miu Amano is a character of the cast of Blend S. She is seriously cute and I think that you could even call Miu Amano adorable.
She loves to draw and always seems to be doing so. Miu wears her red hair in plaits and has the sort of eyes that will simply melt your heart in a matter of minutes.
Her name is cute as well and I think that adds to her character.
15. Edward Wong - Cowboy Bebop
I simply have to include Miss Edward Wong from Cowboy Bebop on my list of anime girls with red hair. My main reason for doing so is because many think that she is a boy.
But, Edward Wong is indeed a female and a very smart one at that. In the series, she is a hacker and the genius of the cast.
The best way to describe her looks is white with the red hair.
16. Grell Sutcliff - Black Butler
Would you like to meet a female murderer or assassin? If you do, I have got the perfect red hair anime character for you.
Her name is Grell Sutcliff and you will love her. She is funny, but like so many other characters in anime, there is a twist to this red hair´s personality.
Anyway, Grell is a personal favorite of mine and I think that she is great. You can catch up with her in Black Butler which, incidentally, is gaining more and more anime fans every year.
If it wasn´t for Grell and her somewhat off the wall personality, I don´t think that the series would be a top rated dramas.
17. Yona - Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn)
When you are looking for a romantic adventure, you should check out Yona of The Dawn. It was originally published in 2009 and still remains popular both in Japan and abroad.
The main character is Yona, and needless to say, she has red hair. Some think that Yona of The Dawn is a bit simplistic but if you are just getting into watching anime, I think it is one of the better series.
It has a little bit of everything in it including romance and adventure.
18. Akane Sakurada - Joukamachi no Dandelion
Would you like to meet an anime princess? I am sure that most of us would like to meet a princess with red hair.
My favorite anime princess is Akane Sakurada. You will find her in the series Joukamachi no Dandelion and she plays the part of the main protagonist.
This girl may look sweet and innocent, but believe me, Akane Sakurada is not exactly Snow White if you know what I mean.
But, with her short red hair, she is one of the prettiest girls and I know that many people love her.
19. Karin - Naruto Shippuden
Do you like oddball anime characters? I love all of the oddball characters that you find in manga. Karin from Naruto Shippuden is just such a character.
She is not the prettiest red hair sensation but still deserves to be part of my red haired anime girls list.
Always loyal and rather sweet, I think that she is the perfect character to finish off this list.
Who is the prettiest girl in anime?
I am not sure which out of all the names on this list, is the prettiest female character. When I first started to compile the list, I thought that I would be able to make up my mind easily.
But, there are so many pretty girls with red hair that it is not easy to say who is the prettiest.
For once, I thought that I would do something different. Why don´t you get in touch and let me know which red hair female character is the prettiest?
It would be really good to have your idea and suggestion. Of course, it would be good to hear from you as well.
Is red hair attractive on a girl?
My answer to that question would be yes. Maybe that is why so many girls color their hair red. I know that all sorts of hair colors are in at the moment.
But, whenever I look around, I do seem to spot a lot of girls with red hair. There could be a good reason for that.
