  • If this hasn't won an award, the game is rigged
    I read the manga first and was so excited to see that Crunchyroll had this in their video library. Wandering Son is a beautiful, heartfelt anime that hits home for anyone, I think, who has ever felt like they didn't belong and were a bit weird. You don't have to be trans or gender dysphoric to understand what Shuichi is going through and why it's tough. The portrayal of his sister and friends are ...

  • A nice slice of life anime
    I have to say that I wasn't expecting to like this show very much but I did!
    It was very interesting and I liked the characters. The love triangle in this anime made it more interesting..
    I thought it was cute in its own way.
    I liked how I was able to relate to the characters and understand them. Its nice to have a anime focus on the lgbt community.
    Probably the first slice of life anime I ...

  • This show has so much potential...
    So you think that I'll give it a terrible mark because I say it has untouched potential. Well, then you've got it all wrong. What it means, is the premise of the show (along with its characters) is so clever and well thought out, that a few extra episodes detailing their lives as children and a few episodes post-puberty would have not have been icing on the cake; rather, it would have slapped ...

  • Beautiful look at young gender!
    This is one of the most beautiful touching anime I have ever watched. It deals with lgbt issues in a delicate manner that really captures the difficulties of being a young person dealing with gender and love, its sad, funny and complex. The music and the soft bright almost watercolour-like art made this a pleasure to watch.

  • The ending will leave you wanting more
    I liked this show so much I had to read the manga. It is very slow moving but that is because it is very focused on the characters and developing them. If you like anime that centers on characters this is one to watch. It also tackles the difficult issue of being transgendered in a very thoughtful and educational way without making it the only focus of the show.

  • Simply wonderful tale
    This was an absolutely stunning anime, from the original art direction, to the impressive handling of a sensitive topic. I count not stop watching this, and just wanted more when I was done. It is a very charming tale, and deals with very complex emotions in fairly young main characters leading to conflict and interesting twists that lead to a wonderful conclusion. I highly recommend this to ...

    Underrated masterpiece that contains a detailed slice of a gender-bending life
    This show is a slow starter. After the episode 1 and 2 I thought It would be a generic show with more of the same boy-girl problems in a high school. But the show keeps a slow and steady pace. And shows many moments I enjoyed where the high-schoolers talk like grownups. The way they talk about themselves and their surroundings makes this show brilliant in my opinion and keeps me interested untill ...

    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 ...
