    Finally, an anime that dares to be different.
    Hourou Musuko (Wandering Son) is in no way your typical anime. There's no mecha, not much fanservice (if at all), and no pop-cultural references. However, that fact is one of the series' strongest points. Simply put, it's brilliant. It's one that dares to be different. It's one that shows you can have a beautifully animated series that touches on a moderately important topic and it can be pulled ...

    I see, it is fun to watch
    I see, Nitori is more like girl and Takatsuki and Sarashina are more like boy. It can happen when wall of genders are still vague but not clear like this anime. Since I'm and I was straight when I was that age, it is difficult to understand what they feel but I want to see what will happen next. This anime looks like Evangelion, His and Her circumstances. I think this is interesting theme.

    I ...

  • Good show for peaple starting anime
    This may seem weired but this is the first anime i watched and i loved it. Ot was cite a while mantaning the troubles of growing up especilly for trans/nonbinary/any other gender kids and teens. It was really a good representaition of not even trans but all lgbt kids and how they struggle with who they are at points ( i know this isnt the case for all but for some)

  • Wonderful, nuanced anime with great characters
    I really enjoyed watching this (wound up binge-watching all the way through) and thought it was a beautiful story with great, relatable characters. I think I related best with Yoshino's character in that I didn't want to grow up to be a woman--I was very much against all the wearing of skirts and growing breasts and all of that sort of thing.

    I felt it dealt with LGBTQ issues sensitively and ...

  • The Story Keeps Going, and That's the Point.
    I am so happy I watched this. I try to avoid heavy topics in my media since if I want to be depressed I'll just watch the news, but this was special enough that I knew I had to watch is. The characters were perfect and well rounded. The story was real - and not the garbage kind of unending sadness real that the Oscars like, but real real. However if you are expecting a solid conclusion you are ...

  • Excellet Storytelling
    The way this show has captured and presented this concept and told of this concept is exquisite. By throwing the viewer into a confusing situation that depicts an amount oif history between the characters right out of the gate on top of presenting the primary story with an enormous weight is definitely an excellent way to start getting emotionally invested. I am not disappointed with the way this ...

  • Truly inspirational story
    It took me a long time to actually watch this anime, I started watching it a year ago, but dropped it then because I didn't feel like watching such a slow paced anime at that time. I know found the time to watch it. The story was very good, I like the fact that it's different and deals with a topic that is not often talked about. I really enjoyed the animation also.

    P.S - The ending song is ...

  • Highly Recommended Series
    This is a spoiler-free review.

    Please also understand that I have had no experience of my own with gender or sexual identity, so I cannot judge personally whether or not the series accurately presents the feelings of someone who has.

    To begin, I will say that Hourou Musuko is a very well done series and I believe that everyone should watch it without a doubt. However, as with ...

  • Never watched the series, but I love the gesture...
    For this boy to have the courage to be a crossdresser, ESPECIALLY in a country that is definitely, so far, not in favor of same-sex relationships of any kind (although this is slowly changing in Japan, but only very slowly), this series shows something unique and I applaud the producers! I don't think I will watch it, but I still understand the message and I think it's good that yet another person ...
