If y’all didn’t know…IT’S PRIDE MONTH!!!
Well…what’s left of it anyways. Today the lovely Nerdy Perspective released an AMAZING blog post on asexuality and I just felt super inspired to do a post of my own. You can find that post here: https://anerdyperspective.com/2018/06/26/where-are-the-aces-asexual-representation-in-anime/. Some of you may know this and some of you may not, but I classify myself as heterosexual bi-curious. The definition of bi-sexual is as follows (per my lovely friends at Wikipedia):
“Bisexuality is romantic attraction, sexual attraction, or sexual behavior toward both males and females, or romantic or sexual attraction to people of any sex or gender identity; this latter aspect is sometimes alternatively termed pansexuality.”
I prefer men over women, but that doesn’t mean I’m not sexually attracted to women…because lets face it…I AM! Hence why I call myself “heterosexual bi-curious.” I lean more on the normal scale of sexual relationships. Whatever “normal” may be XD Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post will be all about anime characters you may not have realized were bi-sexual! Yaaasss. My bi-sexual kings and queens are coming out to play! While bi-sexual representation in anime/manga is still pretty inclusive, I am glad to see that there are some characters out there representing the bi-sexual community. I hope as anime progresses we will get some more characters who seek love from both ends of the spectrum. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some enticing yaoi/yuri stories but I want to see my sexuality represented more! Gimme gimme. I’m like a kid in a candy store….I want everything and anything all at once and I won’t take no for an answer…tehehe 😛
Let’s get to this character list my pandas!
1. Syaoran Li from CardCaptor Sakura
^Yup! Our sweet and lovable Syaoran-kun is bi-sexual! This actually came as a surprise to me because I had NO IDEA that he was…but now that I do it makes my heart flutter with happiness ❤
2. Usagi Tsukino from Sailor Moon
^If you couldn’t figure this out the first time around I suggest you go back and re-watch Sailor Moon lololoz
3. Rin Asogi from Mnemosyne: Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi
^Rin loves her alcohol as much as she loves her kisses from Mimi
4. Ayame Sohma from Fruits Basket
^Shoma is in love with his adorable assistant Mine Kuramae but has no trouble flirting with Shigure as well.
5. Yō Miyagi from Junjou Romantica
^His first love was a woman but he is currently very much in love with a man…if you know what I’m sayin…ayyyeee
6. Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell

8. Tenjou Utena from Shoujo Kakumei Utena
^Tenjou has a romantic story-line with Anthy as well as Anthy’s brother. So we playing both sides of the field now eh? I’m okay with this.
9. Haruhi Suzumiya from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
