I can't seem to find another butch lesbian anywhere. Is Haruka Tendou the only butch lesbian character in existence?

I get all excited to see a new yuri show, only to have them ALL be feminine =/

Anyone have any recommendations for me? Or is that the sole character for the entirety of anime?

There's Sae from Hidamari Sketch and Yoko from Kiniro Mosaic, but that's really more yuribait than full-on yuri. I wouldn't really call them "butch", but they're sort of masculine.

If you mean in appearance, then I really don't think i'm aware of any. The closest one that comes to mind is Rei from Onisama e... but how "masculine" she is in appearance is kind of debatable. Though, when I first saw her, I thought she was a man.



In terms of just a "masculine attitude", I think you'd have far more luck. But at that point, I guess they're really just tomboys?

You might consider some of the characters in Simoun though. The premise of that show is that at birth, all children are female and then "choose" their gender when they reach adulthood. Because of that, there are many characters that almost seem like they could be "butch", but I don't think it necessarily applies to what you're looking for since I think they're technically men. Waporif from that show comes to mind, but even he/she has a somewhat feminine appearance (as are most of the younger main cast).



That's all I know of, unfortunately.

Actually, funnily enough you missed another one from Sailor Moon: Seiya (Sailor Star Fighter). Outside of Sailor Moon I can bring two additional examples to mind straight away, but I'll spoiler them just in case. Spoilers apply to Attack on Titan and Revolutionary Girl Utena.

That's not butch. These women are butch:

Zorin Blitz in Hellsing Ultimate:



Or Integra Hellsing for that matter from same:



Gina Paulklee from Gangsta. this year:



There are more but those came to mind right away.

But they have to be gay. They can't just be butch, they have to be butch lesbians. None of those characters are gay as far as I know.

I don't remember Zorin having lesbian undertones. Who was she probably hot for? For science, of course.

But you're right she would be good paired with Rip van Winkle.

Vandread does.

Gascogne and her partner Ezra (it's sci-fi so that's their biological child)



THOUGH! Vandread isn't a yuri anime. It's a hetero-sexual sci-fi mecha harem comedy with a lot of fan service. Main character is a guy and he has 3 girls in his harem. Then there is another guy who inadvertently falls in love with a trap. Then there are 2 different lesbian couples. It has a lot of different elements to it, but the butch lesbians are there. They just aren't the focus.

Yasuko from Aoi Hana isn't particularly feminine at all. Great show too even if it lacks a definite conclusion.
