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.
