I recently did a list of 12 Best Anime Girls With Purple Hair. In that, I mentioned that I will be doing many more similar lists. This time I have decided to compile some of the best female anime characters out there who sport brown hair. Well, brown is a kind of neutral color. If you have been watching anime for some time, you would have seen how freaky the producers and creators get with their color composition. Certain anime characters are just walking triggers for putting the audience into a color induced frenzy! Compared to them, brown is much more subtle, and kind of meh. But, don’t worry. These characters aren’t, and they look great with their brown hair. So, here’s the list of top anime girls with brown colored hair.
12. Sakura Kinomoto, Cardcaptor Sakura (1998)
Let’s begin with some magic/fantasy genre anime. Sakura Kinomoto is the main protagonist of the anime series ‘Cardcaptor Sakura’.
