Exactly how implausible is brown hair in anime/manga?

So light as to verge on red or blond is pretty obviously implausible without a justification like dye. However, I've met enough East Asian people with natural dark or even medium brown hair that it's easy to accept almost all shades of brown as reasonable artistic license.

Clipped this entry, the series explicitly doesn't take place in Japan or any other real place.

  • The Kanto region of Pokémon had realistic hair colors, anime Adaptation Dye-Job aside; the one blond was explicitly an American. Misty, however, is a red head with Blue Eyes. She may not be Japanese by descent, but no series has made any mention of it.
