    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Stunning with a beautiful animation style!
    This anime shows an often-avoided topic. It is truly inspirational and shows not only the how the main characters feel, but how other people feel about them. They included homophobic people, making the work both realistic and breathtaking. There are very few animes like this and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

  • A Masterpiece In Of Itself
    I'm a bit late, I realize, however I want to address how wonderful this anime is. It is such a fresh series after anime after anime about the boy meets girl, instantly falls in love. I'm a huge fan of the romance animes, and this was all the more a wonderful find for me. It incorporates the definition of people in a different way than other anime do. In most, the protagonist has no identity ...

  • A cute, lighthearted look at a serious topic.
    The art for this anime is just so soft and beautiful, it's like watching a storybook.

    In only 11 episodes, there's not much space to properly cover the content of the manga, but Hourou Musuko functions as a sweet, lighthearted spin-off of the source material. I loved it, it was a very sweet series and there was some heavier emotional scenes in the middle. It's a different trans experience to ...

  • The only show to touch me on such a deep level.
    As a transgender woman who experienced a similar youth. I didn't have anyone who was like me or that I could relate to; it was a difficult time for other reasons but me feeling like a girl inside and having other people see me as a boy on the outside hurt. I wish there were more media about these issues, so that I could have known that I am not alone and that other people feel the same way. ...

  • From my perspective.
    Watched the first episode. As a transgender woman/genderqueer who relates painfully to the main character and has been taking hormones consistently for a bit now, I must say that no 22 minutes of any TV show or film made me cry real tears as much as that.

    I dunno if I can stomach much more. Perhaps if I am that much of a masochist, but that first episode was beautiful.
