This is a thread for character discussions about the hair colours. Some people (including admins) arnt too sure about the hair colour on some characters. For example, Kotomi from Clannad. Some people seem to think she has blue while others think its a shade of purple.

If your not sure about a certain characters hair colour then just post them here with a picture and it can go into discussion with our fellow members. The admins will make a decision from there.

Hope this helps any confusions.

We decided to add Kotomi since she clearly has dark blue hair in some pictures although she does have a dark purple colour in others. If more people say that she has more of a purple colour the admins will talk about it again and make another desicion and most probably take her off the list.

If we use Kyo's hair as a reference of "violet", it might be easier to define the color of Kotomi's hair. Spoiler hides the original game character images.

But Kyoto animation made Kyo's hair more bluish compared to Key's original character setting. This may cause the confusion.

You are right if you use Kyou as reference, but most scans around show everything from purple to blue, see the club-pictures:
http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?action=view&t=pictures&id=1515

And even in the novel isn´t a right answer^^

http://home.arcor.de/blackbahamut/Kotomi1.jpg
http://home.arcor.de/blackbahamut/Kotomi2.jpg
http://home.arcor.de/blackbahamut/Kotomi3.jpg

So I support Chii and the admins and say "as long as nobody complains, let her stay"^^
That I don´t want to join the "purple characters" club because of only one character is another issue XXD

**would still do it if it´s for Kotomi-chan ^_^**

EDIT:
I know I already posted it in a similar fashion in the comments, but I guess if it´s in the fitting "discussion"-thread, we´ll have a faster reference if anyone has a question about the Kotomi-issue^^

EDIT 2.0:
Even if you want to take her off from the list if many people will object...
How will you do that when she isn´t on the list anyway.... XD

@chii: you can say that again, I can´t wait for her figure to be released ^_^
*anime & manga figure collector; small collection till now though*

Back to topic:
Since I´m now in the team too, I´d like to explain my "analyse pattern", so that user (and of course the colleagues ^_^) can better understand how I judge the colors.

Since the pictues from M.A.L aren´t that good, I´m going through following steps:

1. if picture from M.A.L. is enough to confirm blue, *approved*

2. if step 1 isn´t enough, I´ll try to have a look in my own collection. If the figure is in a anime/manga I possess and the color is clearly blue, *approved*

3. if step 2 still isn´t enough or not possible (c´mon, I don´t own THAT much^^), I´ll look at scans on minitokyo.net. If I can confirm on a few scans that there are blue haired version of the figure too, *approved*
Note: I don´t count fan-vectors, it has to be a scan or a wallpaper with a clear image.

4. if even step 3 can´t clearly help because the color is still not clear (haircolor between blue/purple or something like that) I have a look with Photoshop and "extract" the color. This step can follow after everyone of the others when I feel like it, though.

Of course, I only go through that pattern if it really could be blue, when it´s more than sure red or anything like that, I only bother confirming when you can tell my WHY it´s clearly red in that case.

For example, there are cases like Yue/Nodoka from "Mahou Sensei Negima!" where the colors got traded in the new season (depending on season, one of them has blue hair, the other girl purple). If you say in advance that something like that is the case, of course I´ll investigate a bit more^^

You see I´m trying to do that as fair as possible^^
But in the end, I needed longer to type that down than I would need to check, thats a matter of 5-10 minutes, depending on how much I have to investigate.

But of course that is just how I check that out, last decision comes from the complete team and of course, from our members, a.k.a YOU^^

How in the world does Akane Tendo (Ranma ½) have blue hair? Is that a later phenomenon?

Same question with Keiichi Morisato (Ah My Goddess). I've seen both the OAV and TV series with specials; he has black hair as far as I can see. About the only person close to blue would be Lind with her purplish hair.

I'm not sure how her character picture makes it look green but Kiyone from the Tenchi Muyo series has that turquoise hair color; would that count as blue?

Thanks for the suggestions^^

Akane Tendo:
She is one of the special cases that has black hair on manga artworks but blue hair in the anime. You´ll find pics of both versions here:
http://browse.minitokyo.net/gallery/?aid=340

Still it´s a fact that she has blue hair in the anime, so she´s allowed to stay *gg*

Keiichi Morisato:
Hmm, from the pics I saw I´ll have to agree here o.o
*removing*

Kiyone:
Sadly I don´t have the anime anymore and I don´t find enough pics to give a clear answer... Everyone, opinions please ^_^

Most pics I found are blue, so *approved*^^

Kaoru Kamiya:
I found a interesting number of variations for her hair colors but blue seems to be ok, so *approved*

Since when am I the only one to decide something like that anyway, it´s not just the club of the officers, EVERYONE can give ther opinion XD

I'm abit confused about Subaru she mostly appears in the anime with torquoise coloured hair, but at some points she has a darker shade of blue.

Subaru with Torquoise hair.

Subaru with darker shade of blue.
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg39/Clairvoyance89/Subaru02.jpg

I've seen pics of her with blue hair too, like the mal image for instance.

And on a side note the character who plays Subaru (for those who don't know about the .Hack series, the characters are set in a mmorpg world, so they have people playing them behind the screen) has dark blue hair, but pity she's not on the mal character list, or atleast a picture of her under Subaru.

She is indeed one of the troublesome cases, turquise can be seen as blue or green depending on the individual. Pictures of scan/wallpaper pages like minitokyo weren´t really clear either.

I leave it to the members to decide that, as always^^

I think a lot of the characters listed have purple, blackish-blue, or just straight-up black hair. Most obviously is Ciel, since its stated in the original game that she has black hair (though she is one of few blackish-blue heads that I originally thought has pretty blue hair).

Royal purple should stop being considered dark blue. ~_~ Like Kotomi, Saeko, Shampoo. Because that just isn't anything else than royal purple.

I think the problem is that people generally misuse the word purple while thinking of violet.

There is tons of fanarts with black hair, but you get that from manga mostly. But in anime and on manga covers it's quite clearly dark blue (except that one suspicious green contrasted with purple santa suit)

I think a few of the characters have clearly black hair, like Tomoya, and some have bluish black hair. Some of these bluish black haired characters have been confirmed by their creators to have black hair. I originally thought they have blue hair too but after hearing their official hair color, I can definitely see their hair passing for black now.
