Ah yes, the black hime cut; a staple of the anime girl hair style.
There’s nothing more alluring than a girl with long, pretty, straight, black hair. Ah, who am I kidding? The black hime cut is nice and all, but it couldn’t hurt to have some variety. Granted, it’s not as if one single anime has multiple black hime cut characters (at least, not that I’ve seen thusfar), but it’s fairly easy to spot the hair style’s prevalence across all of the shows airing this season. Let’s take a look at this nice little image I managed to scrounge up from some dark corner of the interwebs:
That’s four off the bat already. The only other one I can think of is Valmet from Jormungand, but I guess no one likes that show so she was conveniently forgotten. Or perhaps I have no idea what I’m talking about and she doesn’t actually have a black hime cut? It looks pretty convincingly like one to me, though. In any case, this is entertaining enough for me to want to keep spotting black hime cut characters every season. Yes, I think I quite like that; I might just do it. Look forward to Black Hime Cuts: Summer 2012!
