    As a fellow anime fan I must say this, Alright, be honest, how many times in reading manga or watching an anime that you've been pretty sure that you've could have come up with a better color scheme for whats been shown? While enjoy unnatural colors used in a characters hair, you'll find that some can pull it off better then others, there's also the subject of clothes that needs to be addressed as well. Lets not for eye color as well people.

    Somtimes it's necessary. It goes with the character, or in some cases contrasts heavily for humour.

    I've not really read any manga where the colour scheme is crap, same with anime. Can you give some examples?

    Aya Natsume from Tenjho Tenge, she'd look allot better if her hair was black instead brown.

    Aya looks perfectly fine with brown hair. Black hair I think would detract from her bubbly sort of nature, giving her a sort of more sultry look if one could call it that. Plus sword girl with black hair has been done so many times.

    What about her sisters hair? Before seeing her color I thought she was blond, didn't help the fact that I thought she looks better that way.

    It's anime, so the silver hair looks good on her. Plus blonde hair again don't suit her character.
