What makes tomboys so much better than most other character archetypes?
Because it's a very common fetish and has a lot of representation in anime and Manga, so more people come and call it better than other fetishes.
It's also a very versatile fetish that can be paired up with virtually any other fetish, so it can attract all kinds of peripheral people.
You're woken up at night by sounds.
Walk into the kitchen and see this tomboy stealing food from your fridge.
Of course she is
Also, she'd be fucking perfect, if only she were a
Don't mind me, just posting the GOAT reverse trap.
I'm going to watch an episode of Hyouka and by the time I'm done I expect this thread to be replete with tomboy pics. Please don't fail me.
When done right they're fun, cute and relatable. They also don't generally have a 'female outlook' like that which many men find baffling, thinking and acting within constraints which we better understand while still being cute girls.
>liking certain type of women
>"..but t-that's so gay!"
You might want to see a psychologist, I don't think it's healthy to be that insecure about your sexuality.
can we get some non-sporty tomboys? boys doesn't = sports
Tomboys tend to not be weighed down as much by gender roles and stereotypes, which makes them freer than most other females.
I would also like to argue that most hobbies that are considered "masculine" are by the end of the day, objectively more fun. Just that lots of females have been culturally indoctrinated to disagree.
Tomboys make me feel like they could be my equal because of how they don't let themselves be shackled down. And by the end of the day, what I desire the most in a partner is just that. A partner.
One that I could challenge the ordeal that is life with.
God you sound like such a fruit pie.
But Ueno's not a tomboy, she's completely feminine.
This kind of "otaku-bait" tomboy is the fucking worst.
How about being a cop, loving mecha media and being an outstanding mecha pilot?
That's what's called a marysue-otakubait tomboy, for when you want to transcend "shit tier".
And thos, friends, is how you can tell somebody has never seen Patlabor. Beyond shit taste confirmed.
So you haven't seen an undisputed classic, one of the highest points of the medium, and think you still get to talk shit. Alright then.
All joking and bait attempts aside, you are doing yourself a massive disservice if you've never seen anything Patlabor.
Am I still doing myself a "massive disservice" if I don't give a shit about anything mecha?
Does Utena apply?
Even when she's trying to be a boy, she's still super-girly, and she failed to be a lesbian afterall, unless you count that weird-ass movie.
At least there are no terrible opinions and horrible taste being flung around when that happens. This little encounter has made me fear for the future of /a/.
Damn right she does. She isn't just named Ai, she is it. She embodies it.
Simply put, yes. I'm starting to think you'd be more at home with pic related, or some subreddit or tumblr where you'd fit in.
These threads have been steadily getting worse ever since the mods started going after them.
Yeah, the Ingram with an ERA vest is one of the greatest sights in all of mecha. Even when the series is being silly it's far more grounded in reality than any Gundam or Macross.
This. Next he's going to shit on Planetes.
I would disown any child who hates on Patlabor and Noa. That is no child of mine.
>mad faggots who think their favorite retro anime is under attack when i simply shit on their otakubait tomboy waifu
I don't have an opinion on those anime, except that it's retro mecho and uninteresting to me at the moment. I have watched other retro anime that don't have to do with mecha and I enjoyed them. No need to get all buttflustered and defensive
You're shitting on a character from a show you haven't seen based on a description that doesn't even qualify as rudimentary. You aren't attacking a classic show, you're attacking common sense.
I can criticize any bitch posted here, especially when it comes from a poster describing her and asking for MY opinion.
If you wanted to get asspats from me complimenting you and your waifu, don't get assblown when you get a different response. You retro faggots constantly pride yourself in your matureness and shoot that around like you're hot shit but you're just as deluded and childish as you were in the 80s and 90s. Grow up, dad.
Your several responses throughout this thread to multiple people within a small timeframe have already proven your only reason for life is to receive human responses no matter how negative and not to actually enjoy anything. tl;dr your a fag
Once again, you're turning your strange outlook and admitted deficiency into a strength. There's no such thing as magical 'old anime', just anime that is old. You are proving yourself to be a blob of cancerous cells that landed on a keyboard, and once again not actually directly addressing any points raised.
Get a load of this guy
You can say that you don't like oranges, and prefer apples to them. But when you say that oranges are shit, and anybody who likes them shall kill themselves, you will get your face reworked, son!
Epic argument, gaydads. Stay asshurt that someone didn't give you asspats for liking your waifu and by proxy, giving yourself the satisfaction of being liked. Probably the only attention you get, am I right? So sorry to deny you that, losers.
This homo did >>119232445, pay attention shitstain.
>Obvious rhetorical question as an excuse to post a tomboy in a tomboy thread
>Thus I am compelled to shit on a character I know nothing about
You're the same type of poster who gets super autistic about somebody posting a reply to one of your posts that isn't a direct response, right?
The irony of you talking about attention is palpable when you're the one who willingly entered this thread and shittalked a genre that has infamously rabid fans, and responding consistently to every post addressing yours.
The only purpose to a move like that is for attention, just in case you needed me to explain why that is ironic since you're apparently a five year old mentally.
>implying i'm underage
Another great logical fallacy the retro fuccdads like to throw around.
This entire spectacle is a classic example of a "your waifu is shit" and you and your buttbuddies throwing a tantrum. You fags are new to /a/ or something? I couldn't contain my laughter when you were preaching about being worried about the future of /a/ or some hilarious shit.
>grasping at straws
C'mon dad are you even trying?
If the future of /a/ is people who think that old shows are a separate entity, that an opinion based on a five word description is a valid one and worth defending and that Planetes in any way qualifies as retro or contains giant robots, then you're damn right I'm worried.
I think its because its likely that they like a lot of things as a guy you like that normally it would seem as too ''manly'' for a normal girl to like, and may it may just be me, but I find it really cute when the femenine side of Tomboi is showned either by teasing or them getting flustered, may just be me.
You were basically picking on the guy who was right, even according to you by calling him a "12 year old who probably didn't know" while at the same time correcting someone who was wrong about the same thing. Can you even add 1 + 1?
What she deserves is hugs. And hand holding.
I'm going to post Noa and there's nothing that an anon with terrible taste and opinions can do to stop me.
>Blushing or flustered tomboys
This is my fetish
No, you've managed to completely misinterpret the post.
Does Leona count as a tomboy or is she too feminine for that?
>Planetes does kind of fit under the broader definition of mecha
>but this 12 year old couldn't possibly be well versed enough to have known that.
What did I misinterpret? Sounds like you were kindly correcting the incorrect one while berating the correct one by assuming that he was ignorant even though that's based completely on your subjective opinion.
The only way I could have misinterpreted your post is if you were talking about the same poster.
>And thus, I stole your heart.
Ain't that the truth. She stole my heart all those years ago and I'm still waiting on getting it back.
But liking tomboys makes you to be potentially gay.
If it's only a tomboyish personality, you are probably normal but I assume that the tomboyish looking is the biggest part you are attracted to in them
That means you prefer manly features over feminine ones so you can't deny you are partly gay or something.
I was the 'incorrect' one. You would never consider both Patlabor and Planetes to be 'classic mecha', anon. Planetes only fits in as much as it comes under the way that Japan uses the phrase to describe anything involving most forms of technology and high-tech transport, not in the way anybody would ever use the word in an English speaking community. Stop outing yourself as having never seen two incredibly good shows just because they predate 2009.
B-but anon, I wasn't doing the shitposting. I also have very little Noa on this tablet.
But I bet you guys like dick girls too.
Good question. She has elements of one but doesn't quite make it on the personality. Deunan certainly counts though, far as classic Shirow girls go she's easily the most tomboy.
>tfw no cutie pie tomboy wrench to get down and dirty with in the workshop
It hurts. One of my few /o/ fantasies that will never come true.
If one where to create a 3dp tomboy thread in another bored (tv) how successful do you think it would be..?
Also this tread needs more kanboru.
>Having anything to do with a shitbox Subaru
>comparing interests and appearance to actual gender traits
Girls not living up to the obsolete standards are completely acceptable.
Girls growing something they are not supposed to have by nature, is not.
Are tomboys more prone to wearing scant revealing clothing? They're often seen revealing their legs and thighs by wearing short shorts and midriffs by wearing those crop tops, usually sleeveless too so they can also reveal their smooth hairless armpits.
Tanamachi Sexhair is a 50/50 job. One end she knows she is a girl and has the means to act like one but at the same time she has boyish mannerisms and tendencies when dealing with other people. Whether its engaging in bantz and teasing with the MC or smacking cunts up for being smart pricks. Tanamachi is a fembro with tomboyish tendencies.
Is she considered as a tomboy?
Well, her appearance is pretty tomboyish but her personality is girly as hell.
That's sort of what I meant. She's about two thirds of the way there. Being crass and short tempered isn't an automatic qualification, I hesitate to mention her but look at Leona's mech piloting counterpart Noa. She's generally sweet, friendly and kind with rare outbursts of of anger. Leona is pretty much that inverted, which is more traditionally masculine.
>You will never engage in a session of bantz and playfighting with Karou.
Damn its too bad people like her don't exist in this plane of reality. Those sorts of people are fun to hang out with.
>Implying Subarus are of any taste other then shit
Anon please contain yourself.
Tomboys are 'safe'. They are girls with their feminine aspects and behaviors de-emphasized and their interests are generally more in common with a guys.
So basically they are for people scared of or intimidated by women.
It's much like how anime and manga fans love incest. Because sisters are an inherent, pre-existing intimate relationship with a girl, without the scary aspect of having to actually build a functional relationship with a girl
>watashi wa ichiban
I know that's actually Iori's song
Does that mean having reverse traps for a waifu makes you some sort of omega?
Because she does not believe in herself that she is "cute". Then when you tell her she is she gets all flustered about it. Initiate blushing tomboy
you're right anon, she's the
Tomboys have contrast appeal. Their feminine traits are seen less often, so when a tomboy does something girly it becomes a special moment that really captures your attention. It's the same principle behind the appeal of tsunderes and serious girls.
>needs more Kanabru
Don't mind if I do.
Sawashiro just makes the most based tomboys.
Long haired tomboys>short haired tomboys
So how do you like your tomboy relationships?
Awkward, tight as fuck, unspoken and slow burn like pic related?
Cutesy, blushing heavy and innocent?
Or perhaps you have a third option.
>you will never fireman carry and exhausted Kanbaru back to her room after a long day of training and tuck her into her futon.
>Reverse traps with large breasts
I found an image of my waifu as a toddler, though I'm 100% sure no one wants to see shit from deviantart.
BTW why short dark hair is so typical for tomboys in animu, especially for past these years?
Find the tomboy who popularized the look and blame/thank/scold her for it.
Because it's sporty
Because it's Japan, they all have dark hair.
Tomboy hair is usually the least flashy so the crazy colors like purple and green or whatever are usually out. It's just black or if they want more saturation blue.
Kino is the only tomboy that I think looks as good with long hair as she does with short hair.
>not loving your tomboy
That's disgusting anon.
Even the lesbian ones can't win.
Alright, of was about as far from a harem as they come, but it still counts.
>short dark hair
but it could be a good material to make a girl look more girly too.
>short dark hair tomboys
>tfw no long haired tomboys with glorious manes.
Aside from Koaru and Kanbaru you don't see it as often. Hell the mullet itself does not even exist anymore. Few sport it and the ones that do manage to pull it off quite nicely.
Thats material for future threads. Keep making threads until the basic definitions have been defined, once the basics have been covered move onto the variations of the basic archetype.
A definitions post to follow the list.
Postergirls: girls that are identified with tomboys, as such they appear the most, Makoto being the unofficial OP header
Standard: boyish attitudes not much more
Athletic: boyish in attitude but it comes out the most in their devotion to athleticism
Reverse Trap: the holy grail
Mechanic: similar to athletic but their out let is more along the mechanic side
Wild Onee-san: wild older sister figures, sometimes viewed as delinquents, but definitely boyish/manish in behavior
Borderline tomboys: More like girls that were kinda boyish at some point (may remove tomboy classification and act as a catch all)
Badasses: they are like tomboys in that they can think like guys and have no problem getting their hand dirty with manly work doing "badass" acts. But seem more mature in the sense that they act this way more out of necessity than preference.
Genki Girls: is a girl that may have masculine preferences or hobbies, but is still very feminine personality wise.
Sexual Preference doesn't need to factor into the Tomboy equation.
>you will never pat a tomboy on the head
Also the best tomboy doujin to ever see the light of day.
because a tomboy can be both a lover and a friend--it's not necessary to divide one's life into romantic fun and "real" fun. of course there is a whole gamut of different tendencies (with the tomboy being an outlier), but men and women have generally evolved fundamentally different passions
it's part of the reason why in long term relationships almost every man has a "man cave" (hasn't yet become generally acceptable for the woman to do the same)
>the best tomboy doujin
I thought the same until I read this.
>I mean in all fairness Planetes does kind of fit under the broader definition of mecha
Not it doesn't. Not even close. It's one of the closest to a hard SF space show made.
The space suits they use are not mecha, not even by the most open definition. It's a space show not mecha.
This will always be best for me
Nah, there are plenty of blonde Karlslanders.
Talkin' shit about my waifu??
Because she wants Crab's crabs
Because she wants Araragi's shaft
Because she's not and Koyomi made everything up as a wild teenage fantasy.
>Read the later posts. Japan uses the word a lot more broadly than we do, and Planetes kind of fits with their usage. Kind of.
Are we speaking moon? No then we will use the English understanding of the word.
They can say mecha means anything with machines, but even if we took that meaning the space suits and space ship[s] are not the focus of the show meaning it's not a mecha show.
It's a space show, not a mecha show.
Why are Tomboys always so submissive?
Don't you want a glorious long haired S to dominate your pathetic cocks?
They aren't always submissive. I've seen a few tomboy femdom doujinshi.
Patlabor is considered mecha but I don't know if I'd call the labors the focus.
>Patlabor is considered mecha but I don't know if I'd call the labors the focus.
It's a hard boiled police drama, with the focus on the police work and the hunting of criminals right?
No it's a cop show with mecha. They are a branch of the police that use labors to police other labors. It's clearly about the mecha.
The best tomboy for me so far, not by the looks but how she acts like being good at video games, badass outside but girly inside, treats you like her bro outside but in love with you inside.
Too bad she has a very little screentime in the show though.
Monkey's eyebrows are a miracle of the universe
did janitor finally cave in to the tomboy craze?
1 million tomboys can't be wrong
If he deletes it we can rebuild.
We have the technology.
Do we want labcoat Inaban?
TOMBOYS ARE ONLY SUBMISSIVE WHEN FIRST FACED SEXUALLY WITH A REAL BOY, THE THING THEY'VE ALWAYS TRIED TO EMULATE
PSYCHOLOGICALLY THEYRE TAKING NOTES, THEY WANT TO BE RAVAGED BY THE STRONGER SEX
My skin color is the limit, so SEA-levels of brown is fine.
Sorry anon, she's canon lesbian married.
No doujin ever made my dick explode quite like this one.
Yeah, this is one is pretty good. Found it few days ago. Clean simple art, hot heroine, what's not to like?
How is her skirt allowed to be so short? Is that the power of spats?
>Skirtless Kanabru with a collar.
You can't do that anon, that's
