Would you still watch your favorite anime series if the genders were changed?

Monogatari's one of my faves too, and I don't think it'd have quite the same appeal for me as it does as is, but yeah, I'd still watch it. The best part about the series is the banter and supernatural elements, both of which stay (mostly) intact after a gender swap. I think I could sit through gratuitous tongue-in-cheek female-targetted fanservice for the sake of clever wordplay and the series' trademark artful character development.

My other favorite anime is The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and upon reflecting on it, it loses very little from being gender-swapped. I think a male Mashiro would probably be a little weird, as I think most viewers wouldn't be so quick to forgive her disregard for day-to-day chores and social mores if she were a guy, but that's about the only thing that seems like it would be much different. I'd still watch it and think it was amazing.

Considering my favorite series is Fullmetal Alchemist(specifically Brotherhood), yes, yes I would still enjoy it with reversed genders.

Hunter x Hunter .... hmm, maybe haha Kurapika would be fine... but Leorio?!?! I don't even know what to say if he was ever a lady, Gon & Killua would be odd, and Hisoka!! My god, if he was a she...It would just not make any sense at all haha, but I'd probably still watch it

Well, gender-swapping can threaten plot elements, unfortunately. Out of curiosity, I'd be willing to watch the gender-bended versions and see what they had to change.

In FMAB, Izumi Curtis' backstory specifically involves miscarriage and her even giving up her reproductive organs. Also, the monk and Shinto priestess characters of Inuyasha can't simply be gender-bended into men, due to them possessing the abilities and other characteristics attributed to their roles. Also, it would really screw with Kamina from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. His over-the-top, ultra-manliness would be put at stake. He emphasizes his awesome manliness too much for me to be happy with him as a woman. Sara's story from Now and Then, Here and There would have to be majorly overhauled, since her rape and pregnancy is important to the plot and her as a character. Finally, I worry about Basilisk, since rape and traditional kunoichi characteristics play significant roles, and Hakuoki has samurai that are loosely based off historical people and events. Not a good idea. My other favorites wouldn't be as affected.

My favorite series is Macross

Macross 7 was kinda that way in that the singer was male and the love triangle was 2 men & 1 women (all the others the singer was female and the love triangle was 2 women one man) and I watched it and liked it.

I would watch most all the anime I have now if the genders were swapped EXCEPT Harem anime!

I would love to see Code Geass and Death Note gender bend.

Why do you taunt me so with the Gender-swapping anime questions?



Why yes, I would watch Cromartie High if they swapped all the genders for one episode, and never mention it again.

As they say, good characters are still good when they're gender-flopped.
Steins;Gate, as mentioned above, wouldn't change in the slightest!

I shall not go into the horror of Gender-swapping the less notable Fanservice anime. To put it simply, boob's can be used for low grade humor, but the Ho-yay requires far more sophistication.

AAAND Attack on Titan, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Sword Art Online.

a Male Asuka and Female Shinji, something everybody should want.

And you know, I want a female MMO protaganist, ok? They exist you know, perhaps not in the greatest numbers but for MMO's they're more common than other game genre's. Just, give me a chick who's more fight and less heal, is that cool? Like that chick from .Hack/Sign!

Whatevah, I'll provide pictures lates, if I feel like it.
