I have no problem with them. In fact, I'm usually able to spot them.

I'll just say I got spoiled on something in the manga (which I don't read myself) and leave it at that.

I just started watching Guilty Crown, and I thought this character was a girl until he spoke.




And Hunter x Hunter have the most ambiguous "trap" characters. I've always thought Kalluto was a girl until later on when other characters refer to him as "Zoldyck brother"... and I'm just like... "Ok..."





Anyway, my point is... we're so dependent on visuals and clothes and images that pertain to particular gender... that we take assumption that one must dress or act like male or female according to the rules.

But these characters have allowed me to broaden my mind, I think.

I usually saw traps that are actually guys than girls... well... at first I was saying that wow she looks really cute and beautiful and all... and then after some episodes it suddenly gets revealed and all... and I was like backing away from my computer and pointing at it accusingly saying that it tricked me.. haha it always gets my mind blown but in sort of a good way of course

I'm not a big fan of traps. I could never understand the purpose. At least not for anime that isn't a comedy. Sometimes it just feels so out of place.

Traps usually only work as a running joke, but usually turn into some sort of fanservice imo. I'm not a fan of the latter. And the former I'm pretty picky about.

They sexualize a thing people wouldn't find arousing in real life. It is like incest in this regard.
