The perfect anime girl could have any hair colors: pink hair or brown hair, or white, but chances are she has purple hair. Variety makes life better in this crazy world. Purple hair is a color that can be anywhere along the spectrum from close to white to darker than black. It’s often reserved for anime characters who have had dark histories but whose hearts are not entirely darkened, yet sometimes it just looks good!

Are you looking for that one anime girl with purple hair you once saw in an anime series? But with the amount of anime you watched, you probably forgot which anime series. Don’t worry, fam, I got you. Here are 10 of the most interesting female anime characters with purple hair:

1. Ritsu – Assassination Classroom

As a sci-fi anime series enthusiast, I’m not surprised that robots are better at taking the life of than humans. Robots like Ritsu; who starts off as a big hunk of metal with an adorable lilac haired screen saver and eventually evolves into a more compact form while also getting severely nerfed, so she can’t really fight anymore, but her role in class is to support the other classmates by being their E-Girl mascot!
