View Full Version : Favourite Tomboys?

11-19-2002, 08:21 PM
Haven't started a thread in a long while....but I'll give it another shot. Given that the androgynous thread created a mild confusion, I thought I'd try a simpler stereotype in anime-
So who ranks in your favourite Tomboy?

Although not anime my fave would be Aika from Eternal Arcadia. She is such a cool pirate girl and those goggles! ^^

just in case there is any confusion- Tomboys are girls that act boyishly but don't necessarily have to look like or dress up in boy's clothes! (although it helps!)

Akane Tendo


Ryuunosuke Fujinami

Tenoh Haruka... Bwhaha. She has always been my favorite anime character from the start. Mwee hee hee.. moo.

Haruhara Haruko, mochiron!!! *rides a Vespa through the galaxy* My shooting star is in the shop today.

lol!! i forgot the name!! but she's a samurai girl <<wow what a helpful description>> and she's the reincarnation of a great warrior. dang i feel stupid now. OH WAIT, it's Jubei-Chan!! hehe!

I would think Motoko Kusanagi would count.

"What? Tough chick needs backup? Since when did she ever need backup?"

11-20-2002, 03:57 PM
I wonder if Aika from Skies of Arcadia counts.

11-20-2002, 05:39 PM
I think Aika counts.

As for anime....one of the younger girls from Love Hina...Seta's daughter...she a definite fave. If only i could remember her name!

11-20-2002, 06:31 PM
Akane for me.

11-20-2002, 06:50 PM
Seiya Kou, manga version of course^.^

11-20-2002, 07:00 PM

That would be Sarah McDougall.

Akane is my fave, with Motoko from Love Hina running a close second.

kagura from azumanga daioh!!

11-21-2002, 11:31 AM
Defenitely Pan from Dragonball Gt and Haruka Tenoh from Sailor Moon.

11-22-2002, 12:53 PM
Hmmmm.....I would have to go with Akane Tendo (Ranma 1/2), Ukyo Kuonji (Ranma 1/2), and Ryoko (Tenchi Muyo)....wait....Does Ryoko count? I think she's very boy-ish a lot of the time.

11-22-2002, 01:13 PM

Ryoko, good one. Completely forgot about Ryoko.

Yes, I will follow the Akane Tendo crowd on that one. It's so cute the way she won't admit she likes Ranma. And she isn't helpless and annoying like most female main characters...well...at least when she is its actually cute and not terribly irritating. -snarls at pathetic and intentionally weak main characters...which could be why tomboys are so fun-

11-23-2002, 03:32 AM
There's a few, but, overall -- King from The King of Fighters series... She WAS in an anime, The Art of Fighting anime, but.. ^^;; I like her best in the KOF video game series... "C'mon, baby!" *drool collapse*

11-24-2002, 09:19 PM
Haruka and Haruko! Boo-yah!

11-24-2002, 09:29 PM
Tsujimoto Natsumi from You're Under Arrest! ^___^ She's one of my favorite anime females, and I was thinking about cosplaying her a while ago when my hair was shorter..

Rally Vincent. . . oh yea~ ^_^

11-25-2002, 12:56 PM
Although from a video game and not an anime I would have to say....Meryl Silverburgh from Metal Gear Solid. Boo-yah! I have a thing for red heads.

11-25-2002, 01:15 PM
Kei from the Dirty Pair and also Akane Tendo. :angel:

How could I forget Kei??!?!?! Thanks for mentioning her, Lovelyangel. Dirty Pair was one of the first animes I really got into (waaay back in the day) and I thought Kei was just the coolest chick. (I must have been about 9 at this point.) I even had a Dirty Pair T-shirt! And I used to try to draw Kei, cuz her hair was so cool. lol

Holy cheese and crackers! I forget about Utena Tenjou. I don't think no ones has mention her yet. *reads others posts*..no..:)

..yea... she is my other favorite Tomboy. :)

11-25-2002, 02:09 PM
Utena counts? Then she has my vote. :D

11-28-2002, 10:48 PM
*thinks really hard*

Akane Tendo, of course!!
Sara from Love Hina
And ... Ryoko from Real Bout High School (manga version) - all I know is that she is not "lady like"...

That's all...

11-29-2002, 02:21 PM
