If the genders of the character from your favorite anime switched do you believe you will like it as much as you do now?

As for myself being Saki and Anohana. I don't believe I would like Saki as much as I do since that will be a lot of yaoi. As for Anohana I think I will still love it as much as I already do.

Are the female characters still the ones that abuse the male or is that too reversed?

The hell is with all these genders threads?

And yes I would because my waifu Saber was originally suppose to be a guy to begin with and Shirou a female. I watched the trailer to Fate/Prototype and it was still awesome.

Well of course! Just look at Gintama's Gender Bender arc in the manga, for example. The characters are still awesome and quirky.

Probably. If it is a character I just admire then I wouldn't mind...but if it is a character I have a crush on then no, I wouldn't like it as much since I don't like girls

To be honest i wouldn't mind i few gender bends.
Darker than black for example would be highly interesting or even full metal panic.
A girl can totally lead the charge and get a guy to fall head over heals for them like a damsel.

But no seriously.. why isn't there more of this?
One that obviously works a little to well which i know you all agree with is black lagoon, theirs even a bloody special for it. xD


Seems to be plenty of cross dressing hei but no gender bends. Sorry folks.
Gonna have to cross that sea of hell called pixiv one day, can't promise i will keep my sanity afterwards.

The only one I know I'd be okay with is Naruto because he looks so cute as a girl, and it'd be so cool to see them all as the other gender. I can just imagine how it'd all look. >.<

I'm not a perfect person, I was socially conditioned by society to believe in certain gender stereotypes... and subconsciously they hold true to me--the important point is I'm aware of that myself, I don't become oblivious to my own stereotypes of genders.

So my answer will be yes, I will be affected if my favourite anime characters switched genders.


Like for example, I like Lightning from FF13 because she doesn't act like the typical female character (contrast to Serah). If she was a guy, I would probably think that's a normal thing for a guy to do--to act so violent and I wouldn't take interest in such a character in the first place.


And Nakamura from Flowers of Evil, the reason why I like her is because she doesn't act like a typical female character. She's not socially gracious and conformed, if it was a guy, I would think that's normal... what's so special about a guy being rude and ungracious?

It's a gender stereotype in my head that I'm already aware of myself, but I can't change it because I've already been conditioned by society to think this way.


As for male characters being female instead, well I love Chrollo from Hunter x Hunter because he's very philosophical, I don't know how I would feel if he was female, it would feel wrong.
I like Kurisu from Steinsgate for the same reason, but she acts more like her gender in the sense that she's not confident and she's very understanding of things.


It's hard to explain this without sounding sexist, so I don't want to explain it any further.

The setting would change too much. The reason I like my favorite character is because of his tragic life.

hell would break loose in the harem genre

(In response to the OP) it wouldn't change my opinion of a certain anime, the protagonist's gender was ambiguous to begin with, and for the most part was irrelevant to me until mid-way through.

I'll consider 3 favorites of mine - Kemono no Souja Erin, Fruits Basket, and Kimi ni Todoke.

If Erin was a boy, I honestly don't think I would have liked the series as much. I'm not sure why, but I feel like her gender is a big part of her character (even though it's really not). She just wouldn't be the same as a male.

I think I would hate Fruits Basket if the genders were reversed. It would feel like a normal harem and none of the sentimental moments would work well.

However, I think I would still love Kimi ni Todoke as much as I do now even if the genders were reversed. It would be a little odd considering their personalities and the premise, but I think it would still work quite well. Drat, now I actually want to see that gender reversal lol

Hmmm. A female Spike Spiegel and Jet Black, and a male Faye Valentine.??? Spike and Faye, I think I could deal with.. A female Jet... That might take a BIT of adjustment. Jet's backstory would need a LOT of revamping. Overall, it might work.

Female Hei? I don't think it would change the story much, which is what I really like about season 1, but Hei definitely wouldn't be cool with it!
