The 15 Anime Tomboys Fans Fell in Love With

Anime characters typically fall in-line with Japan’s social gender roles. Basically, males are masculine and females are feminine, with little deviation from expectations.

However, a series will challenge some notions by including tomboys, which are girls that exhibit boyish behaviors. Most of them maintain short hard, speak super casually and enjoy rough activities. Here are the best tomboys according to Japanese fans.
