Hi and welcome to Anime Rants! This week for Sunday Select we have a list of my personal favorite anime characters who have white or silver-ish hair. This does not include characters with grey hair. The entries are listed in alphabetical order and contain a few of my notes. Also, it turned out that most of my favorites in this category are males; sorry for the unbalanced representation. If I get some good views for this post, I’ll probably keep doing more posts about characters with different hair colors. Ready, set, Rant!
1. Aru Akise (Mirai Nikki)
Akise is a supporting character from Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) and one of my favorites in the show. He’s extremely bright, clever, and thoughtful. While he investigates the death game going on in the city, Akise falls in love with Yuki, the male lead of Mirai Nikki.
2. Atsushi Nakajima (Bungou Stray Dogs)
Atushi is the protagonist of Bungou Stray Dogs whose special power is to tap into the strength of a tiger, or become a tiger entirely. Despite the tiger deep within him, Atsushi himself is a gentle, humble, and kind boy. He is happy to find a home with the Armed Detective Agency.
3. Ginko (Mushishi)
A traveling exorcist of spirits called Mushi, Ginko is the main character of Mushishi. He’s quiet, confident, laidback, and frank. He doesn’t mince words and is quite pragmatic sometimes. However, Ginko is actually highly thoughtful and surprisingly caring, though he doesn’t show it.
4. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)
Next up is Killua, one of the main characters in Hunter x Hunter. Raised as an assassin and pressured to become the heir of his family, Killua broke away from all that to become a Hunter and befriend Gon. Even though he no longer takes human lives, this boy is amazingly powerful and strong.
5. Near (Death Note)
Near is the successor of L and the enemy of Kira in Death Note. He’s a rather famous character, but not necessarily in a good way. Plenty of people dislike him, but I think he is a fascinating and well-written character. Near is very young but he’s also one of the smartest people alive in the universe of Death Note.
6. Norman (The Promised Neverland)
The newest to my list of favorites, Norman is an important character in The Promised Neverland. He’s best friends with Emma and Ray, and has a crush on Emma. Compared to those two, Norman is the best strategist. He’s incredibly intelligent and also kind to a fault. Together with his companions, this child seeks to escape the farm.
7. Togame (Katanagatari)
Togame is one of the two main characters in Katanagatari, together with Shichika the human sword. She possesses a keen, strategic mind, and rarely reveals her true plans. Normally logical and able to deal with just about anything, Togame must face difficult new emotions as she grows attached to Shichika.
That’s all for today. Thanks a bunch for reading, and have a good Sunday!
