The game has an incredible character creation screen where you get to choose your hair color... and not have this fake "choice" between the same boring natural hair colors. You could customize every little detail, including even nose width and length! The hair color selection isn't from a presorted set of colors, but is actually on a spectrum (Woot! ) and we get to customize, in every sense of the word practically, our very own 3D anime character. Sure hair styles and outfits are preset, but they're really cool, and the cash shop looks promising for additional items.
I don't play female characters in games but this was just using the character creator for testing just to show the options available:
And from what I'm told use an X-Box controller for this game, since mouse buttons should be used for movement while keyboard buttons should be used for abilities (A for autoattack if you don't have a Razer Naga), so a controller would mitigate the poor control layout.
