Recently I've found myself drawn to more masculine women in my anime and games, like Ryuko in Kill la Kill, Makoto in Street Fighter, Mikasa in Attack on Titan, etc., which pains me to say, because it seems insulting for me to think that an aggressive, confident, casual female character is somehow "masculine" as opposed to just...you know...human.

Like most people, I prefer active, engaging characters that can make me care, and I'm honestly tired of all the "kawaii" crap permeating the genre. Not that I don't enjoy it at all, but if you eat dessert for every meal, you're bound to get sick.

So, I ask you: What are some of your favourite tomboys? Do you prefer sporty? Strong? Brash? Vengeful? Controlling? Tough on the outside, mushy on the inside? Or am I alone in my specific preference? lol. Either way, I'm curious.


I also recently have been finding myself more interested in Tomboy characters as well. For me, I think it has to do with the appeal of a girl dressing/acting very differently that you can't help but be curious. For example, Tsugumi to me was the best looking girl in Nisekoi by a long shot. I can't say I hate "kawaii" girls though. I love all girls regardless of their personality type.

Ya, I was just pointing out that my experiences have biased me against girls who try to be tough, because I have met too many. I realize it is fantasy, but I just have a sour taste that lingers. Plus when girls try to become like these superhero, adventure seeking role models, they are usually unprepared and inadequate in both disposition and physical capability. It is like trying to watch a man walk in high heels, which is funny until you realize you have to carry him around after he sprains his ankle.


lol, funny analogy. And I get the feeling. My dad has been on the police force since I was born (in the city with the highest homicide rates in Canada), and I've known my fair share of female cops. Some are admirable badasses, but just as many need their hands held. That said, I've also known a lot of male cops who should have been transferred to 7-11, so it's hard for me to say "men > women" when it comes to authority figures. I guess I may be a little naive on the subject, but...I don't know. It was nice talking to you, anyway. I always appreciate a new perspective--even if the topic is hot tomboys.
It's about 6 a.m. for me at this point, so I'll continue the subject with you all tomorrow.

I leave you with my current wallpaper:

Yeah, probably the best tomboy character I've seen. Someone you could go out drinking with, laugh at some crude jokes, shoot cans off a fence, but dating her sounds completely insane.

Girls that aren't confident in their femininity I think I may like them just because I feel more comfortable around them. But if they come out all dressed up and pretty for the first time and they're embarrassed about the whole ordeal, it's a wonderful thing.

Like when Caska wears a dress for the first time in years.

Of course these situations aren't the only reasons why tomboys are great. It's just that these situations always tend to happen, and I love it every time lol. The way tomboys are written, they are usually given a focus on internal strength, rather than more superficial aspects. It's refreshing to see. And even if they aren't especially deep characters, decidedly masculine females are a nice change of pace.

That is what makes tomboys cute when they randomly do things like that.

Yeah, those little situations can be really nice, but I don't know which scenario I prefer: "Rarely wears a dress, but looks great in one," or "Mistaken for a boy because of her clothes, but super cute underneath." Tsugumi from Nisekoi is a perfect example of both.
