Okay, I’ve already covered blonde, red and blue hair so today I am tackling silver hair (though I won’t argue if you want to tell me some of these characters have white or gray hair). Next week I’ll share me list of the guys with silver hair and I had a lot more fun with that list but there are still some great female anime characters with silver hair to be found. My final decision this week came down to characters that had silver hair that I found to be kind of adorable on a character I found to be interesting. As such it is entirely subjective and I’d love to know who you would have included on your list.
Please Note – There are spoilers below. You have been warned.
Honourable mentions to Villetta Nu (Code Geass) and Eucliwood (Is This a Zombie).
Number 5: Anju from Karin, Chibi Vampire
Anju is arguably the most interesting character from Karin despite how little she talks. A great deal of the plot is pushed forward by her small moments of interference or her suggestions to other characters. She sits in the background a lot but she is very motivated and driven. What I like the most about her is that despite the fact that she is very attached to her sister, she isn’t trying to hold her sister back but is really trying to push Karin into a life of her own. It is refreshing to see a sister complex that results in actually helping the object of your affection rather than trying to control them. All and all, I really liked Anju as a character and episodes that had more of an Anju focus were very enjoyable.
Number 4: Togame from Katanagatari
Togame is a fascinating character and her journey throughout Katanagatari with Shichika is adorable. Her hair plays a fairly critical role in the development of their relationship early on and later in the series gets cut, so not only is her hair beautiful but it also has a purpose in the plot (though I will admit it is probably more white than silver).
Number 3: Sylvette Suede from Letter Bee
I haven’t got around to a review of this show yet but it is adorable from start to finish and Sylvette is one of my favourite characters. She’s the sister of a missing letter carrier and has a strikingly similar appearance and colouring. Throughout the show she develops a close relationship with the main character as he goes on his journey. She’s wheelchair bound and her cooking is fairly toxic but she’s most definitely the most resilient character in the show and the one who regardless of circumstances knows that they have to keep moving forward in whatever way they can. Utterly adorable character and the heart of the show for a lot of the characters.
Number 2: Kanade from Angel Beats
Kanade is just adorable. Even when Angel Beats first started and she was set up as the antagonist, I loved her character from the opening as she played the piano. As the story developed, we found out she was just kind of dreadful at communicating and she was actually trying to help everyone move on. She’s just such a sweet character and I really wanted her to be happy at the end of the series, which is why I always end up in tears pre-final credits and then smiling like an idiot post-final credits.
Number 1: Yin from Darker Than Black
So what beats Kanade? An emotionless doll who actually has more agency than it first appears, apparently. Yin is undoubtably my favourite character on this list. While early in the series, she really is just a doll, as the story progresses you see more and more often the small things she does because she wishes to and the way she builds her relationship with Hei. She’s a crucial part of the team and the only reason Hei managed to succeed at anything, so really should get the title of most valuable player for Darker Than Black. Plus, she’s just beautiful.
Alright, that’s my list of silver hair female characters. Who would you have included on yours?

Haha, when saw the title my first thought was that it would be much easier to find guys with silver hair, so looking forward to the list next week. Totally agree with Kanade and Yin. My additions would also be Menma (anohana), Nia from Gurren Lagann (hope that her hair fall under the definition “silver”) and as a Monogatari fan can’t just skip Hanekawa-san-cat 🙂
Let’s go with Nia. I’m not that picky about the particular shading here. Thanks for your suggestions and I hope you do enjoy next week’s post.
Yin!! I love her character and her growth from doll to a nuanced person was one of the most rewarding things about that show. (I’m not such a great fan of what happens in the second season though.)
Let’s not talk about the second season. It’s better that way.
Man I was expecting nao from Charlotte and Mira from fairytail
I probably haven’t seen enough fairytail to appreciate Mira (I get that she does stuff later but mostly I’ve just seen her serve drinks and smile).
Well you could say that she does just serve drinks in the beginning 😂but yes during the later half there’s a different side that is shown,she’s one of the most powerful wizards and the She devil 😈after all
Kansas is one of my favsssss and chaika was super cute
Great to see some Letter Bee love, I hardly ever see anyone talk about that show at all, let alone specific characters. A hidden gem, I’d say.
Definitely. After writing this list I started a rewatch of Letter Bee because I realised I hadn’t reviewed it. I forgot how annoying Lag was in the first two episodes though. After that it is all good but young Lag annoys me.
YAAASSS Yin! <3 I love her so much! I am glad you put Kanade on here as well. I love inner Moka from Rosario + Vampire, Isla from Plastic Memories, Koneko from Highschool DXD, Koko from Jormungand, and Chaika from Chaika the Coffin Princess. Even though some of these ladies are considered more "white" than "silver" hair 😀
I didn’t really distinguish so much between white and silver and just went with it. Nice list of characters. I can’t believe I forgot Koko from Jormungand.
It could be one in the same lol I think you did a great job with this idea! 🙂
