** Though there's been ample amounts of subtext [[HomoeroticSubtext between Yuuka and Takaki]], only the latter has been confirmed to be [[StraightGay lesbian.]] Still, it's been implied that Yuuka may have feelings for her, if they're not already involved. They're almost always together, including when they arrived for the group's vacation to Okino Island, [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c028/9.html as if they were a couple.]] She also agreed with Uruchi, when the girls were discussing the kinds of guys they liked:

** During the flashback in chapter 48, Yuuka referred to Takaki as, [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c048/17.html "her important person"]], and the chapter 45 preface page shows them spooning together while engaged in foreplay.

** Some of Suigetsu's mannerisms and body language could also be interpreted this way, such as the scene where he threatens Sasuke from behind while naked, though his TeethClenchedTeamwork with Karin [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation can be viewed as ]] BelligerentSexualTension.

** Shota Aizawa, who has expressed visible displeasure at the idea of marrying/dating a woman, and who's only close friend is his (male) ex-classmate and fellow pro-hero and teacher.

** ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a very subtle example, with Kirishima. It's stated that his favorite thing is "Manly Guys", which by itself is already pretty complicated. The amount of time he spends talking with or about Bakugou, besides his [[spoiler: fight to convince everybody to help rescue him]], even more than Midoriya, who is his childhood friend, makes it sound like a crush. In the recent Halloween art for "My Hero Academia Smash!!!", he is seen dressed as Little Red Riding Hood gleefully running from a half-naked Bakugou.
*** "My Hero Academia Smash!!!" tends to add a lot of shiptease towards the more prominent Ambiguously Gay couples from the source material. For example, during a series of strips where Bakugou was affected by a Quirk that made him act like a shoujo manga love interest, a lot of innuendo was included between him and Kirishima. Present Mic also calls Aizawa by a cutesified version of his first name, "Shoucchan."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/TenkuuShinpan'': The main character, Yuri Honjo, has yet to show any attraction to male characters, having only shown interest in her brother (in a BigBrotherWorship way) and the Sniper Mask (merely noting that he is handsome beneath the mask and is a good ally), but hints at no attraction to either. She does, however, dedicate a lot of time to her partner ActionGirl Nise Mayuko, whom she describes as cute and at one point kisses her (though it's never revealed ''where'' she kissed her).

Added DiffLines:

** Goku Black and Future Zamasu they seem to be, considering that Zamasu became so obsessed with Goku to the point of stealing his body becoming "Goku Black", he also has a love/hate relationship with Goku as a person, also when Bulma tried to seduce Future Zamasu he got angry too, the relationship between both is in itself very intimate (although it is somewhat understandable considering that they are the same person).


* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'': Robonyan really loves it when B3-NK1 [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything stabs him in the rear and chest with his sword]]. In the Japanese version he even moans while being "rubbed" by the sword.

** It's a common interpretation amongst fans that Tatsuki is a lesbian - she's one of the few girls in the series who never hits on or shows any interest in CluelessChickMagnet Ichigo, her overprotectiveness of Orihime comes off as kind of excessive for just a friend - she's even referred to as Orihime's "knight" once or twice, and it's her job to smack away PsychoLesbian Chizuru. (Who comments that Tatsuki is "[[ButchLesbian too mannish]]" for her.) [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking She also has a somewhat butch hairstyle.]]

** Kirishima Eijirou, who has a fanboy level of enthusiasm for what he deems, "manliness." Though he ''is'' shown to get flustered at [[MsFanservice Midnight's]] her costume and was seen blushing at the fact there were naked girls at the hotspring, pushing him more into AmbiguouslyBi territory.

Added DiffLines:

** Anime-filler character Saiko Intelli is surrounded by adoring female classmates who blush when she speaks to them, and she seems a little bit fixated on [[TeenGenius Momo]], even if she was just trying to defeat her in the Exams.

Added DiffLines:

* Aidou and Ichijou in ''Manga/VampireKnight''. Their affections for Kaname just cross the line between platonic and romantic a tiny bit sometimes...


* Several characters from ''Manga/HanaKimi''.

* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'': The only reason Kaorin's orientation is ambiguous, is because it was never confirmed whether she's actually in love with Sakaki, or simply [[{{Fangirl}} fangirling]] really, [[MistakenForGay REALLY, hard]] over her. The closest the series comes to addressing the issue was when Osaka asked Kaorin if she was gay, in the ''"10th Anniversary Omnibus"''. She tells Osaka that the correct term is "lesbian," then says her attraction to Sakaki is "teenage thing"; adding she wouldn't mind if Sakaki were a guy.
