    Underrated masterpiece that contains a detailed slice of a gender-bending life
    This show is a slow starter. 2 episodes in I thought I had seen it all and it would be generic; showing more of the same boy/girl problems in a high school. But the show keeps its steady slow pace and throws in many great moments where the high-schoolers talk like grown-ups. THAT makes this show brilliant and keeps me interested 'till the end. When I watch the animation that goes with every line ...

    One of the Best and Most Sensitive
    I admit, I read the manga before watching the anime, so I knew what I was in for, but even so this anime is one of the most quietly powerful I have ever seen. It's definitely more honest and forthright than any American counterpart I have ever seen, which amazes me. Especially because it hails from a country where being different is still often considered something to be ashamed of. I absolutely ...

  • What I thought about this anime.
    This anime was cute, simple, and to the point. I love this anime. I suggest this anime to anyone who wants a simple anime to watch. This anime had enough drama and romance to make me happy. I also love the characters' growth. Thats all.
    Enjoy

    Good sotry. But it left me wanting more.
    I'll keep it short and sweet. I needed more of an end. I wish we could have seen the kids grow up a little more and find out what happens to them. But the characters are good and I really like the story.

    Some Reservations May Be Needed
    As a person who comes into contact with the field of sociology every now and then, and by extension discussions on gender and sexuality, the description of this show instantly drew my attention towards it. Sitting down to watch, and spurred on by other reviews, I was expecting to sit down to a deep and interesting series that put a spotlight on gender issues (helped by the title of the first ...

    my review of this anime
    this anime is interesting to say the least. it really opens your eyes to see two genders male and female cross dressers. it really can show how one choice to show the world something they love to do can effect them even cause in bullying but i am someone who excepts people for who they really are so it makes me feel mad about how the other characters judge them. i think that this anime is well ...

    Caketoy's review of Hourou Musuko Wandering Son
    The idea is really short but nothing really develops. The same idea is used towards the end.

    There's a cliff hanger ending which I'm not bothered to find out about.
    None of the characters stand out to me, they're all very quiet. However I do like their personalities.
    This kid had more support than I expected him to have, and more lovers. It was kind of a turn off, 2 is fine. But the third ...

    not only beautifully animated but also a tale with depth!
    ok at first I was a little skeptical i confess

    but I am glad I gave it a shot

    an excellent anime for sure!!!

    at first it starts off a little slow for the first few eps

    but around the middle it starts to set off!!!

    it was a really sweet and enjoyable anime ^u^

    what first drew me in was the unique animation style that was dreamy~

    LOVED THE ANIMATION!!!

    it gave it another ...

    You'll not see anything better than this for a while at least
    Out of everything that was simulcast last season, this was the one that stood out the most. Because it was a lot different to everything else simulcasting on crunchy. First noitaminA slot, and taking a hugely serious topic in crossdressing and making it into an anime.

    If you're looking for huge epic battles, look somewhere else, as this will have nothing of the sort in it. However, while saying ...
