Hot When Their Crazy Pompadours are Down

During wiki editing with my team, I noticed three characters who looked bad ass but not handsome. Later on in the series, their hair goes down, and suddenly, they are quite handsome according to the female characters in their respective franchises.

Beware of Mild spoilers!

Shaman King

Bokuto No Ryu

He has a crazy pompadour that goes through radical changes when someone cuts his pompadour. First, his pompadour has a heart tip, then it splits into a V-shaped, and it finally returns to a normal pompadour.

Ryu's hair is only down in the manga, volume 14.


Tatsuya Himekawa

His pompadour is like Ryu, but it is shorter, gray, and looks like a duck's butt according to Kanzaki. During the Volleyball practice and games, Yuka and Ryoko accidentally unleash his hidden, handsome potential.

Himekawa's hair is down in Beelzebub 32. I don't have the chapters. (Sorry)


Grevil De Blois

Grevil's pompadour reminds me of a blonde unicorn, but Victorique states that it looks like a drill. You can only see his hair down in his flashback and near the end of the Gosick series.

Please see Gosick episode 11.

Akame ga Kill


Bulat has a heart end to his pompadour. Before he joins Night Raid, he had his hair down, and he was really hot.

Please see episode 3.

People Who I Want to See and Future Thread: Afro!

If you want to add someone who has not let their pompadour down, feel free to add. We'll see if they are gorgeous or not.

Afro people

I haven't seen much of them except Bobo-bo, Afro Samurai, and Love Aikawa. I have no idea if it is the same with the Pompadour people. Who knows? If I see a pattern with afros, I'll definitely post a blog about it.


** If you have any hot guys whose pompadours fit these conditions, please feel free to add some. I put it on this post as a commemoration to crazy pompadours on the Crazy Anime Hair concept page.

It was an original forum thread

I'm a noob. I forgot that a forum thread can only posted once and it's stuck there. I wanted to attach it to the characters, but this is what a blog is for.

I want it to connect to more characters if someone wants to add another character who has a crazy pompadour, but after letting his hair down, he looks handsome. It's easier to edit that way. If I ran out of links, I or someone else will make a second blog for it.

I'm so sorry guys and gals.


Added the Afro section when posting this blog.

2-25-12 - I created the Pompadour page because Daniel had some nice silhouette images for Crazy Anime hair and unreal hair colro.

@takashichea: Nice feature, Takashichea. It would be nice to see more characters with afros in anime (I have only seen afros in Afro Samurai and the Davy Back Arc in One Piece when Luffy dons the black afro when facing the captain of the Foxy Pirates in the final match).

While the pompadour is a really silly looking hairstyle i have to give props to any anime character that can rock it and still manage to be awesome.  The Pompadour characters that come to mind for me are Kazuma Kuwabara from YYH but i don't think he's ever seen with his hair down so i don't think he counts for this. The other is Eikichi Onizuka from Great Teacher Onizuka, i believe he had a pompadour at some point... but he cut his hair, so i don't think he counts either.

Oh yeah, I remember Luffy with an afro when I was watching his fight videos.

I think the pattern with Afro people is that they tend to fight a lot and act all cool.


I totally forgot about Kuwabara. Sadly, I don't recall him having his hair down. If he did, he would got Yukina's heart.

Sorry for the late reply. I was waiting for a good shot of his hair down. Thanks, I like to make silly blogs on anime trends.

Finally, we got a good image of his hair down. Though, there was a flashback scene. This was a better shot. Shame, RC didn't upload this.
