A few of my favorites made that list.

Honorable mention should go to the raven haired Akashi from The Tatami Galaxy.

Some of those girls are not exactly black-haired. Perhaps the poll was meant to be for dark colored-haired girls. Anyway, so happy for Mio to be on top. Even though it has been years since the film was released, K-On!'s popularity has not died down yet. I am hoping for a new K-On! anime someday.

Also, it is so nice to see Dia and Nico made it to the Top 5. Very surprising to see Dia being that high, considering that she is still new. And of course, the power of Nico Nico Nii is still alive and well. Well deserved for my three of my favorite anime girls.

Can't help but notice that a lot of these girl fall into the same distant and aloof archetype. Guess hair color decides the personality.

Little disappointed to see Mikasa kinda low. Should be in the top 5. A very attractive woman.

Why is Ayase there when Kuroneko/Ruri isn't!?

Ayase shouldn't be there, nor Ruri, as they both have dark purple hair (Ayase's being a bit less saturated, but still not even slightly black)

Dia making the list from LL Sunshine over Kanan and Yoshiko is a slight surprise to me.

Perhaps this is because Dia's hair is black, while Kanan and Yoshiko possess shades of blue? lol

I'm beginning to think there was indeed a type/translation error here. Not much bothers me, but when a poll states a specific criterion, and a handful of results fail to meet it, I can't help but scratch my head. And this isn't even a taste-related issue! lol hell, Onodera is one of the brunettest brunettes to have ever existed.

How come my girl Saten never gets any love, huh? Crying or Very sad

Hair color
Blood Type
Astrological sign

Take your pick (or all 3 of them) for caracterising a personality.

Japan is big on blood type though.

Homura and Mikasa aren't in the Top 5?

I don't know whether to be more surprised or disappointed. Sad

If this was a translation issue and they did mean "brunette", then Musubi from "Sekirei" is #1 for me.

Mio definitely deserves to be number one though I feel like Hestia should be on the list as well. Smile

But where is Kanuka from Patlabor? For all their merits, none of the qualifying entrants would be able to diffuse an explosive device with her degree of competence.

For me, no black-haired female character can be more attactive than the G.o.a.t:

Madoka Ayukawa.

No one comes even close to her Embarassed

Also interesting some of the names who aren't here. No Hestia - guess that fad was pretty short-lived.


yeah, list was as expected if you use fanart as a guide and series popularity as guides. adn beware of waifu of the month, hestia, hotaru ,mai, etc... thye usually only last one season and that's about it.

@Swissman

I'll second that vote for Madoka Ayukawa. I just received the new figure of her today.
