    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 ...

    Official Lakewatch Review *no spoilers included*
    Wandering Son is an unusual anime. It’s everything you would expect from a slice of life, but it does break a couple molds.

    To talk of anything before Wandering Son’s artwork is kinda foolish however. So lets begin by discussing the art. The shape of the characters is normal, however, it seems like someone has lowered the saturation on the films color. That, or the entire anime takes place in ...

    As a Manga Reader...
    I am a big fan of this series and the big step forward this series is in tackling series social issues which plague the world and Japan in particular.

    Storyline: I have read the manga up to its most current chapter, and the anime downplays the transgenderism of the manga in a serious way. For example, there is no sense of "growing out" of the gender dysphoria for Nitori Shuichi in the ...

    This is why I still watch anime
    Storyline
    The decision of where to start this series is part of what hurts some of its grade. For anyone who isn't clear, this begins several volumes into the original manga series and quite some time after all the characters have met. But if you quit this series after the first episode because you were confused about who was who, please give it a second look. You'll learn who everyone is and how ...

  • 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 ...

    Hourou Musuko - Find your own path!
    Being embarrassed by a cracking voice, getting your first bra, having your heart broken for the first time... growing up can be tough. Looking in the mirror and not being comfortable with what you see is an experience that we all are familiar with, but what if you looked in the mirror and saw yourself as the opposite gender? What if you woke up and felt that you had been born in the wrong body? ...
