Amazing anime characters with long, flowing hair abound in anime. However, some anime fans simply desire anime character with short black hair.
Before we get started on the list, let's define "how short" an anime character is. This list includes anime character with short black hair all the way down to anime character with shoulder-length hair.
Check out these Anime Characters With Short Black Hair!
Mei Misaki (Another)
Mei is a little girl, one of the tiniest in her class, with pale skin and dark black hair. Her eyes were initially red, but her mismatched irises are due to her left eye being prosthetic; a doll's eye that can see things better kept unseen, as Mei tells it. Mei's mother gave her the glass eye when she lost her natural eye to sickness when she was four years old; the eyes are a different color since Yukiyo Misaki thought matching eyes were uninteresting.
She can be seen wearing the normal female uniform, but she has been seen in a variety of clothes throughout the series, particularly when she is with her twin sister.
Kurome (Akame Ga Kill)
Kurome is Akame's younger sister and a former member of the Jaegers. Her parents sold her and her sister Akame to the Empire, where they were trained as assassins. Her sister was enlisted into a different assassin organization, and the siblings split off.

She is dressed in a black sailor uniform with a red belt and a red side skirt cover similar to Akame's, as well as long black socks and black shoes.

Inaba, despite her calm and logical demeanor, has a hard time dealing with awkward circumstances and dislikes things getting out of her hands.
Inaba is a lovely young lady with shoulder-length black hair and dark eyes, with one strand falling in the middle. Her uniform sweater is brown, as opposed to the yellow sweaters worn by the majority of the other females. She is frequently described as wearing something mature or plain in her informal clothes. Inaba has been regarded as having good posture and a thin, yet lengthy form, as well as piercing, yet seductive eyes.
