Minori exists as a weird character in a high school setting. She is flamboyant and speaks her mind and has many quirks as well. At times she can be silly and somebody you probably will not want to take advice from but she has her serious moments too, which shows that she is not just your typical klutz. Dedicated to her schoolmates, Minori cares dearly for her small circle of friends and is even affectionately called ‘Minorin’ by her best friend, Aisaka Taiga.
Akane is an inspector with the Public Safety Bureau. Originally a greenhorn on the field, the pressures of policing awakened the seriousness in her and she soon transforms into a cool beauty on the dangerous streets. Leading a team of latent criminals, Akane is quick to grasp the gravity of her actions in the dark world of criminal activities. Still pure at heart and wanting the best for everybody, Akane will have to balance her own principles as well as carry out her duty effectively.
This next character on the list is waifu material! Having mixes of being a tsundere and a kuudere, Maki just can’t express her true emotions and is most of the time, shy. A talented pianist, she joins the group of 9. There is the sparkly Honoka, the adorable Kotori and then you have quiet and reserved Maki amongst the others. She is also quite intelligent as well, often doing well in tests as well as being a talented composer for the group. Dubbed the diva of the idol group, she shows you that you don’t need long hair to be labelled as a cool diva. You go girl!
So what do you think? Do you still think that short haired girls are the embodiment of the tomboyish personality after the list? There are of course many other short haired girls in anime. Do you agree with the ones listed? Do you think that there are others who deserve to be on the list?

In contrast to the exuberant Haruhi Suzumiya, Yuki Nagato is withdrawn and seemingly emotionless. Yet there is more to this quiet freshman than she is willing to reveal. She is the only member of Haruhi’s SOS Brigade that was not “voluntarily arrested” to join, and also has reality-warping powers similar to Haruhi’s, though on a smaller scale. Yuki may be reclusive and have little understanding of social interaction, but she is also kind and helpful toward her clubmates in her own way. Her odd abilities and understated beauty make her one of the show’s most intriguing mysteries.

It seems that no matter what anime you watch, you’ll inevitably find yourself asking “Who is best girl?” Is it the quiet girl with the glasses? The sporty girl? The brooding loli?

The following characters are some of the best to rock a pixie, bowl cut, or any hairstyle that ends above the shoulders.
If we’re talking lovable characters, Nagisa is definitely a must add on that list, so let’s place her at No.4. Her short hair that looks like a typical middle school cut fits her perfectly as she gives off the vibe of a good girl and being of a timid nature, both of which she is which contributes heavily to her lovable personality.
Ami Mizuno is secretly the powerful Sailor Mercury, one of five warriors charged with defending our solar system from the forces of darkness. When she’s not using her powers over ice and water to strike down the enemies of mankind, Ami can almost always be found studying and reading romance novels.

Throughout the series, she gains confidence in herself and becomes one of the most formidable members of the group.

Short haired girls sometimes are seen as tomboyish in nature, such as being rough and being crude with their words and with a tendency to be boisterous as well. However, that is usually not the case and you will soon see that not all (although a majority) are not at all tomboyish rude girls with some of them even possessing traits of dandere and moeness as well!
Videl might have started out with pigtails, but switched to a pixie cut just in time to become one of the strongest humans alive!

Videl’s definitely got her priorities straight!
Touka is easily the most powerful coffee shop hostess in anime. She comes from a childhood cut short by persecution and gang warfare, and doesn’t let herself get attached to anyone who can’t take care of themselves. Her past has carved her into an agile, dangerous ghoul, but she isn’t without her soft side. Touka is fiercely protective of those few she loves, as well as those who can’t defend themselves. On top of that, purple is definitely her color.
Nagisa of the famous series Clannad definitely deserves her spot here. This dango fanatic is a klutz and has a innocent personality and smile, almost childlike in fact. She often says out her favourite food in order to feel comfortable which was what made Tomoya-senpai notice her in the first place. The effort that Key takes in developing their characters is second to none as that is probably what made them famous.

Her pageboy cut is perfect for a warrior who doesn’t want her hair in her eyes.

Only my railgun is perhaps one of the most recognised anime tunes that every otaku has at least heard before. That is the legend of Misaka Mikoto – the railgun. Misaka is a hot favourite character and can also be described as: ‘simply electrifying’ or Biri-Biri for short. The popularity of this character is clearly shown when her series is more popular than the parent series – Toaru Majutsu no Index. Of course, credit is to be given as Index was a good anime as well but if you want more of Misaka, skip right ahead to her series instead.
Lots of great anime girls have long hair, and that’s fine. But don’t let those floor-length tresses hide the close-cropped cuties from view! The girls on this list are a diverse bunch, whether they’re students, fighters or both—and, in the case of those fighters, they’ve got a more practical hairstyle. If you’re in the market for a new favorite character, be sure to look past the hair at the girl beneath. She might be the invincible warrior or whimsical student you’ve been looking for!
What happens when you put personality into hair? It doesn’t happen. With the exception of the monogatari series of course. The creators were creative enough to express the Araragi family’s emotions to the movements of their ahoge. Her hair is almost like a bowl cut and complements her already round face which just make her all the more adorable and making you wanna cuddle her.
Nagato Yuki is often left in the shadows due to her loud and expressive brigade leader – Haruhi. The air of mystery surrounding her could be the reason for her popularity. Despite having so many lovable characters in the series, Yuki is the one favoured by most.

Tsukihi is one of the younger sisters of Koyomi and she is just as adorable as the imouto typecast will allow. Always donning a kimono, she has a perfect Japanese imouto feel to her. The incest and ecchi tag is just a bonus. I swear! (/w)”
Refined and intelligent, Kiyomi Takada is an idealistic young woman who doesn’t hesitate to try and make the world a better place. Originally she works as a journalist, but when she hears that the mysterious Kira is passing judgment on a sinful world, she resolves to play a part in this peaceful vision for humanity. Kiyomi’s short hair and excellent fashion sense puts her in the running for best-dressed disciple.
Kept at shoulder length, Maki’s hair is coloured a rich crimson, almost representing her undying passion in music as well as her being almost like a dainty and beautiful rose, placing her at number 5.
One of a pair of purple-haired twins, Tsukasa is your typical airhead: clumsy, sleepy, and addicted to her phone. She’s excellent at cooking and other domestic skills, and strives to do well in school even though she’s not the greatest student. Her yellow ribbon is also the perfect complement to her purple hair, and moves to match her frequently changing moods. Fun fact: Michelle Ruff voices both Tsukasa and Yuki Nagato in the English dubs of their respective shows.
Mayuri has short hair as well which fits well for her age of 16. She is supposedly the young childhood friend of Rintarou who sometimes act as his conscience. Her short hair gives her the looks of that innocence and the artist did a good job for conceptualising the uncorrupted and young character we all love.
