Dale’s Suggestive Remarks

I have had an e-mail query:

considering the variety of hair colour in anime if you had to choose another hair colour what would it be?

Well, since the Japanese have a supposedly homogenous appearance, and a lot of anime does not have a lot of quality detail, animators have to use cheap tricks, like hair colour to distinguish characters.
That aside, if I personally wanted an anime hair colour, what would it be? Well, I am sort of blonde so take it to extremes and make my hair golden coloured (kinpatsu). Or, my name translates as green so give me green hair? However when my ego is stoked, there is the possibility my hair could be regal purple.
Though perhaps I should take a leaf from regenerating Doctor Who and say “I always wanted to be ginger”.

What would your answer be?
