  • 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 ...

  • 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

    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 ...

    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!!!

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.
