Finished watching Wandering Son and reading the manga and now I'm looking for any other anime about being transgender, any suggestions? (Prefer Anime but Manga is fine too)

Bokugirl, perhaps? It's a manga.

I only know the premise. A guy is magically transformed into a girl and now he has to live life in a woman's body. No clue how he adapts to it. (As in acceptance or trying to find a way back to his old self.) That's all I can think of though.

There's plenty of anime about transgenders. Search up "Fut-"

^ Not sure if they would be considered transgender.

Yeah, honestly, the only ones I can think of are those where gender-bending is the premise. Looking up Wandering Son, it sounds like it deals with those issues a lot more seriously than a lot of the gender-bending stuff out there, so...

Family Compo is an excellent manga centered around a transgendered couple.

Wandering Son is so good and really dives into the struggle most others just lightly touch the matter like a show and Manga I like is Princess Jelly- Fish its more cross dressing and Otaku based. Claudine the Manga is trans but super feels

I can't really think of any, outside of Kampfer but..........that's what you are basically going to find.



Japan just doesn't view it as legitimate.

Not a manga but there is multifaceted transgender character named Wanda in The Sandman graphic novels. If you look for the collections she is introduced at the beginning of A Game of You (the fifth collection).

There is Ranma 1/2, by Rumiko Takahashi, maker of Inuyasha and Maison Ikkoku, since it hasn't been mentioned. If you like absurdly funny action romantic comedies, you'll like it. About a boy cursed to become an attractive girl when doused with cold water. hot water reverses it. its a timeless classic, if you haven't seen it you should check it out.

That's a hard one. The only time I've seen transgender identity handled with anything like conscientious respect in an anime that wasn't Wandering Son was with a side character in Orphen, but it wasn't the main focus.

Was still great to see however; I thought they did a great job with it.

This topic is relevant to Persona 4 but I'm not sure if it was addressed in the adaptation, and while Rui cross-dresses often in Gatchaman Crowds interviews so far report that he isn't intended to be a transgender character.
