Does anyone else find themselves enjoying an anime more when people have realistic hair? Or inversely, getting irritated when the main characters (and only the main characters) have things like GRADIENT HAIR?
>>
If you're disrespecting Manabi Straight because of gradient hair, then I don't know what to say.

Attention duelists! My hair has an announcement to make!

I rather disliked Lucky Star's neon hair. I thought that shit went out with the '80's. Was it some sort of joke?

Clearly an homage to such conventions

Rukia's believable hair is one of the reasons she's so hot.

Yes.

This was one of the primary reasons I hated Lucky Star, although it certainly wasn't the only one.

Name me one anime series with incredibly realistic hair.

I can think of a few ones with somewhat non-ridiculous hair, but even series which pride themselves on realism have at least ONE character with gradient hair or some ridiculous color like pink, green or purple.
>>
Gradient hair is the future.

No but seriously. One of the most important thing in an anime is color design. If vibrant colors suit the show, I expect the characters to have vibrant hair.

Sayonara Sensei, for one.

At first I thought that was an awful example, but now I realize you must be making a joke.

Speaking of jokes, attached is an alcoholic with realistic hair. Get it? Sake? It's a homograph!
>>
>>10160213

If you're referring to the weird patterns, I guess, though that's more of a drawing quirk than something meant to be taken literally. I think he meant that they all had dark brown/black hair, which is normal in Japan.

The token foreigner has blonde hair and blue eyes, which, to a Japanese person, is an accurate depiction of everyone in North America, with the exception of a few redheads.

How the fuck is it a ripoff? Have you even fucking watched it?

The term used was "incredibly realistic," and the only thing that could reasonably considered realistic about the hair in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the color.

I've included a non-representative screen grab to be difficult.
>>
> I've included a non-representative screen grab to be difficult.

I have lol'd somewhat. To be fair, this was probably overdone as part of the joke, but I'm sure there are plenty of other unrealistic instances in szs.

Not really relevant, but Kaere isn't actually a foreigner.

I find myself enjoying anime more while drinking, then small shit like this doesn't matter.

she dyed her hair and wears contacts. Of course, if it were a live-action show anyone could see she's just an asian with dyed hair and contacts

You're absolutely right!
>>
>>10160594

eh? Guess I wasn't paying attention. I thought she transferred in from somewhere, so I assumed non-native. My bad.
>>
>>10160708

She had been studying abroad in an unspecified foreign country for an unspecified amount of time. So she did transfer in from a foreign country, but she wasn't actually a foreigner.

There's clearly a light source in the upper left corner. Directed light sources, such as sunlight, on semi-spherical surfaces, such as a person's head, can give the illusion of a gradient, if a progressive filter, such as hair, is placed between the light source and the object.
>>
>>10159883
SZS Is basically ALL Gradient from head to background.

Some hairs to me are pretty much realistic.

Then Again...

gradient hair is used because moonland has shit character designers and the only way to tell one character from another most of the time is with rainbow hair
