Actually come to think of it, Misha is the only one who really has wtf hair.
They ALL have "wtf" hair, other than Lilly somewhat. Though, as I stated earlier purple/blue hair is usually a subtle variant of black hair. When have you ever seen a Japanese person with that shade of brown (Emi and Hisao) hair or a Redheaded, Green-eyed Japanese Person (Rin)?

I write take a look, would you kindly?

I think that's because Misha's the only one who dyes her hair.

I've firmly resolved to never mention the hair color of anime characters in my fanfics unless it's black or blonde. I just don't want to have to deal with this.

Well I think Hanako's hair is pretty. And I'm going to assume that it's her natural color. No carpet to compare curtains with.

Oh, I think we can all agree she has gorgeous hair -all the girls do, in their own way. We're just nitpicking at this point for the fun of it, I think.

It isn't exactly easy to tell in the VN since her panties cover that particular area in the H-scene.

Oh lord yes. Even though her art can be contradictory as to its length. I prefer to go with that final shot of her in the game where it reaches her waist. I can only imagine how gorgeous she'd look with it braided.

I go by what I see in the game.

On the subject of Hanako's hair, while she probably grew it long to hide her scars, it really does look pretty. It's not something for her apperence that would be negatively affected by her scarring. Although I'm sure that's not what her goal was.

That's pretty much my assumption. Its her security blanket. She can cover her scars, or her entire face if she thinks she'll be somewhere where people will look at her.

One of my favorite bits in the story is Hisao giving her a hairclip, and her feeling secure enough to wear it.

I just remembered.
Eyebrows.

A person's eyebrows is the same colour as their pubic hair [someone on FB mentioned it, don't ask] (Hanako's are either black or dark purple). And Misha is the only one who's eyebrows don't match her hair colour (but that's expected because of the dye)

Where do you people get these things?

Looking at the CGs, it seems very clear that Moekki's style is black lines for eyebrows (Moekki is the artist for Shizune's route). The sprites are somewhat ambiguous, but the Shanghai CG seems to be a solid case of pink eyebrows.

Regardless, as far as the "rule of eyebrows" goes, it's both true and not true. Eyebrows are a pain to dye, as is pubic hair. People can (and do) dye those areas, but it's not very common. So yes, a blonde with brown eyebrows probably bleaches her hair. A blonde with blonde eyebrows could still be naturally a brunette. Evena blonde with blonde eyebrows and blonde pubic hair could be a brunette with a dye job.

On the subject of hair colors as a whole, the anime aesthetic has three sets of rules - strict, lax, and N/A.

Strict is all natural hair colors, all the time. For a largely Japanese cast, this would mean black, brown, and auburn.

N/A stands for not applicable - there are no rules.

Lax is the middle ground - there is use of unnatural hair colors, but it's largely a stylistic thing. Blue and purple serve as stand-ins for black (and sometimes brown). Pink is rarely used, but can be a stand-in for red or strawberry blonde (but even that is pushing it). Green also appears only rarely, and in such cases can be used for blonde OR brunette. The big difference between Lax and N/A are the fact that hair colors still follow rules - heredity applies, blonde hair is remarkable/foreign, redheads (bright orange, not auburn) are either foreign or delinquents (or both), etc.

According to the "lax" ruleset, Emi's the hardest to explain - the others fall into place quite naturally.
