  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    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. 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 ...

    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.

    Deeply compassionate but slow
    A note on pronouns: Japanese doesn't have gendered pronouns in the same way English does, the choice of pronouns (when used) in Japanese reflect more relative social status and intimacy. For a number of characters in this review I have chosen to avoid as much as possible using pronouns or where unavoidable have used the singular "they" rather then choose a pronoun that may not reflect their ...

    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 ...
