Hey, I was wondering which particular redheaded characters are people's favorites.

I read something about redheads a while ago and it made me think about what redheaded anime/manga characters fans like.

I like:

Asuka from EVA
Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin
Kallen from Code Geass
Cutey Honey
Shanks from One Piece
Kagura from Gintama

I also blogged about this too. So, who do you guys like?

Hmmm, I'd have to say, Lavi from D. Gray-man is my all-time favorite red-head. Following after, Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran High School Host Club and Kallen from Code Geass.

Don't call Asa a loser, dummy :yelling

Anyway

My favorite redheads have to be Kushina, Karin, and Shanks. Shanks is a cool, relaxed character whereas Kushina and Karin are funny and tempered, though Karin's sluttier. <_<

Oh, I forgot about Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho! Definitely my ultimate favorite redhead even though he's a guy. \o/

How could I have forgotten about him? I blame it on the fact that I'm used to the black-and-white manga pages. /excuses

There's also Sasori (Naruto) and Soi (Fushigi Yuugi) whom I also forgot to mention. :p

Shanks from One piece

I cannot believe no one mentioned her, i mean she's a shonen girl and Kicks ass!
Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail
If youve got to the edolas arc there's an epic fight with her counterpart Erza knightwalker worth mentioning her

Ichigo/Strawberry/Zoey (names in Jap/Italian/English) from Tokyo Mew Mew as a kid i loved this and she was way funny ^^

Shura from Ao no Exorcist (not my fav from the manga but she kicks a** too and shes wierd haha)

Enma Kozato from KHR (he's so sad and adorable)

Renji from bleach

Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin; he is the ultimate redhaired, badass and gentle, nice but strong ^^

I cant remember any more we need more awesome redhaired guys!

I like Revy of Black Lagoon, she's just in the wrong series (shocking with the most obvious logic holes in the history of anime and manga). Also Pain of Naruto. Apart from that I think most stories I read don't have many redheads, since Seinen usually is a little less... creative in terms of hair colours.

Ranko (Ranma 1/2)

Karin from Naruto
she's so cynical and bitchy that i cant help to wonder wth of a childhood did she have and she's so funny and annoyingly funny rofl

Karin is a character that (from my observations) is a bit unnerving at first but finally grows on people. It's a pity that the moment I start thinking, "Wow, she's actually a pretty awesome character", she has less screen time.

Semi-OT: One thing I wish Kishimoto-sensei would have done differently was to make Nagato and Karin have the same grey tone as Kushina's hair. Their hair colour is almost the same shade so it's strange that Kushina's hair would be the only one lighter in monochrome. It really threw me out of the loop when Nagato was shown to have red hair.

Lol you just wrote my same exact thoughts, it would be nice to see her being given some help i mean i think she's bi***y and cynical for a reason im pretty sure of that, in the chuunin exam she looked nice and gentle lol way to change. Lol i bet konoha grows on her and she helps out in the future or goes back with her tem deep down she's okay.
You dont know how many thoeries on K and K being related there are, well actually you probably do xD

Kokoa from Rosario and vampire also cracks me up lol
i cant remember any guy red haired i loved anymore :/

Here to list a few more:

There are so many redheads in manga/anime, but redheads are rare IRL.

I agree about redheads being somewhat rare IRL. Even when you do find one, they sometimes get criticized and stereotyped.

On TVTropes, Eustass Kid (ONE PIECE) is labelled as both the Fiery (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FieryRedhead) and the Evil Redhead (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvilRedHead). He's one character I really want to see more of, and I'm sure he'll be a fierce rival against Luffy later on.

Maruko (Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou) is not as extreme as Kid is, but she's shown to be feisty compared to the other robots who are more mellow.

Probably I've mentioned it somewhere, but on the top of my head right now the most memorable redhead for me is Makise Kurisu from Steins;Gate. I've been looking forward to see the new Steins;Gate movie, hopefully she's awesome in that movie as well.
