I see... ... ...

Well, it seems that Arisa with her bright blond hair had no trouble with that.

Neither did Fate with her even brighter blonde hair.

But heck, let's forget about them, what about Suzuka with her shining purple hair?

Don't you love anime hair? People can walk around with purple, tomato red, or sky blue, and nobody gives a second look.

IRL, people wouldn't stop staring.

Watch THE TWELVE KINGDOMS
The main heroin has Red hair and people complain about it all teh time, even her parents. Turns out she was dyeing her hair but that was just to hide her even brighter red hair

Great Anime btw, If you havent seen it you should, too bad they stopped making it
the original Auther of the books that the anime is based on stopped writing for what ever reason.

Well, if we could GenEngineer hair color tones using the parrot as a key to understanding it, we could figure out how to get the natural yellow, blue, and green pigments and get hair color to have colors that don't look so fake like dyes do right now. (Looks like someone just spraypainted their hair really.)

The hair color thing is an old anime trope.

You take a bunch of characters, drawn by the same character designer, all of them with "normal" haircuts, and the same color hair, and they get difficult to distinguish from each other. Think Tomo and Kagura from Azumanga - it's possible to mistake one for the other, depending on how the artist's drawn Tomo's hair in that scene.

You can give everyone crazy hairstyles to distinguish them, but that hurts your immersion in a "normal" series. (Nanoha actually has a lot of hairstyle diversity, if you ignore the "one side of everyone's do is exploding off their head" thing. Nanoha's pigtails, Fate's twintails, Vita's braid, Signum's rather elaborate hair, Hayate's ornaments, etc, etc...)

So the easiest way to differentiate characters at a glance is hair color. But "natural" hues, especially "natural for a Japanese person" hues, don't offer much diversity. So the convention of having people with otherwise-bizarre hair colors came about. In a "realistic" production of Nanoha, Suzuka wouldn't have purple hair, and there would be a lot more black hair and less brown hair all around. (Though Arisa would still be blond, presumably!)

The only downside of the hair hue thing is that, all too often, you can distinguish disguised (or worse, transformed... or related) people by the unique hair color. Escaflowne was an example of that...

New NanoFate Doujinshi

Today we're releasing “Shoujo wa sore wo gaman dekinai”. This doujin belongs to the same storyline as “Hito Ni Yasashiku” and “Sekai wa Kagayaku”. Both of them were made by the same author, are already scanlated, and are available in for download in our site.

In this story we’ll see the “logical” progression of their relationship to a next step. Or at least what should be logical at their age according to Hayate. This girl is definitely a bad (or very, very good) influence.

Preview:

- -

We're also releasing the preview of "Das Resultat sagt alles", one of the most Epic Japanese NanoFate novels. You can't miss this.

Thanks.

Also I'm happy to see that Das Resultant are translating. To tell the truth I lost my hope to see this in for me understandable language. THX

I was wondering what that meant. Those magical schools can't possibly have hair inspections.... And lole at Alisa and Suzuka's entire household.

Offhand I recall in Kannazuki no Miko that although in the anime Chikane has blue hair she's always described as having black hair in the manga. I assumed in this case they gave her blue so her hair would be a unique color and maybe because black is such a boring color

So possibly Suzaku's purple hair may be... Well a more natural color just made purple to make it stick out or something?

I'm just rambling now don't mind me

It might be worth pointing out at this point that Alisa is a known foreigner (but then again, it might not). You know, the classic English speaking blondie ("Be quiet!"). Though I think she came out a lot more interesting than the usual stereotype (as I'm crazy about her and I usually hate this stereotype).

Yes, I love using brackets (a lot).

Arisa is indeed a known foreigner. A rich one. I think she's adopted into the family but she's not japanese. Since her name is Arisa Bannings not Bannings Arisa.

Non-Japanese names are never written that way, though. Ishikawa Tarou may become Tarou Ishikawa, but John Smith will never become Smith John. At least, I have never ever seen that.

I kind of assumed she moved to Japan with her parents, but then again, there's no way for us to know. Now that I think about it, how often do foreigners become influential CEOs in Japan?
