Hello thread. I am a woman and have a chronic case of the gay.

As you might guess from my avatar, I have a soft spot for the Nanoha fandom after it showed me an honest to god lesbian family back in the long lost days of 2007. Baiting and creator's silence be damned.

Haibane Renmei is also very dear to me. I fell in love with that show even before I knew I was queer.

I don't think it's 'bad' as in cancelled, but the other Himegoto is iconic and wonderful in every aspect.

What was the name of that anime/manga where there are two little... I want to say faes that live in the forest and are married and it's pretty much about their daily lives? I remember more than one goon gushing about how it looked awesome/pretty and I wanted to watch it, but I forgot the name. :shobon:

good projekt red av

projekt red is the best

arknights is anime adjacent, but i do wanna mention that it has confirmed gay characters who rule, like Scavenger, and that makes me very happy. and while i'm talking anime-esque games, FGO has nonbinary and trans characters. You can potentially read the relationship between gilgamesh and enkidu as asexual, though it's never made clear if it's romantic in Fate-verse. unfortunately I don't think there are any LGB characters in Fate though, unless you play the female protag.

Rin, Artoria, Medusa, Gilgamesh, Iskander, Nero, Tamamo, Anne & Mary, Nobunaga, Astolfo, Lu Bu, Chen Gong, Jeanne Alter, Brynhildr, Medb, Shuten, Ibaraki, Musashi, Osakabe, Black Bart, off the top of my head?

Rin and Artoria are both presented as bi in the original F/SN VN and that's carried forward, Medusa's presented as bi in F/HA, Gilgamesh and Enkidu's deal is clearly at least romantic in nature imo, there's a lot of 'the only person that truly mattered' type talk with them, and Enkidu's a lot of things but 'definitively a woman' isn't out of them, Iskander outright references past male lovers of his, Nero refers to herself as bi at several points in Fate/Extra, Tamamo says the same thing, Anne & Mary are explicitly a couple, Nobunaga refers to the historical Nobunaga's wives as just, her wives, with no attempt to backfill like there was with Artoria and Guinevere, Astolfo is Astolfo, Lu Bu has some dialogue that implies an attraction to Chen Gong in Fate/Extella and Chen Gong has the same, Jeanne Alter has the bit in her event where she specifically makes Brynhildr one of her romantic interests in the weird meta dating sim thing going on, and later she has dialogue to that effect in Summer 3, Brynhildr's Noble Phantasm is effective against people she's attracted to and, well, there's girls in the striking distance, Medb has several instances where she says she's attracted to Skadi/Scathach, Shuten and Ibaraki are oni-married, Musashi is just outright bi and also references this at several points and has lines where she expresses attraction to both men and women, Osakabe owns both a Musashi and Siegfried hugpillow, Black Bart also just says he's up for whoever.

That's just servants who're in FGO also (well, and Rin) there's way more if we're going with non-Servant characters. Even more if we're counting Tsukihime and other non-Fate stuff that's in the same Universe. It's not the most amazing representation ever (note that 99% of these are bi (note that carmilla isn't on this list despite being famously associated with lesbians, though part of that is just Carmilla having barely any content in FGO)) but it's cool, imo. And also it may be problematic but the joke of Musashi dualwielding because she's bi and 'two sword style' is Japanese slang for being bi, is really funny.

There's also several trans characters,most notably Da Vinci.


I dunno that I'm going to give them points for it, cause they're kinda poo poo about it, but the characters exist.

Eh, it varies. Da Vinci has ups and downs as a character, but taken as a whole I'm glad she exists. It's not really about points imo, I don't really care about declaring typemoon woke, more just whether or not its something with enough there that someone could get something out of it.

I just think it's worth noting when they gently caress up, for as much as I'm glad as she's around.

Though in terms of side eyes nothing quite gets me like making D'eon of all people LESS feminine than irl. (E: Bees'd)

Diebuster is my favorite romance but isn't explicit, but theres so much substance in it that if you choose to read it as not a romance I'll laugh at you.

Fate stuff

I wasn't aware of 95% of that, and I'm really excited to find out that there's so much more representation than I thought! I definitely knew and forgot about Musashi, and I think it just never registered with me that Artoria is bi when reading FSN. To be fair a good chunk of that seems like you'd need to read/play the supporting materials to ever know about.

Endorph's right that there are a lot of ups and downs with the character, which I think can be attributed to different writers (and let's just pretend Agartha never happened), but at the end of the day I think they do a good job with Da Vinci. She's a main character in a massive franchise to boot, which is really refreshing to see.
