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!
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.
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'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.
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.
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.
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.
