I didn't know what topic this would be under. Anyway, does anyone know any good anime to watch?

^_^; I'm too lazy to read the blurbs and looking through all of the anime on the websites doesn't sound entertaining if half of them are boring. I'm looking for Comedy + other so anything is fine so long as it is funny. 07-Ghost, Junjou Romantica, Perfect Girl Revolution and such. :Crylol: Also if there are any anime that have transgender, I'm definitely interested.

Elfen Lied is wonderful, however it pushes the depths of everything humans find sorrowful about the world. Very graphic.

Neon Genesis Evangelion, a classic. There's quite a bit of humor in this one through most of the series.

Voices of a Distant Star, 5 centimeters per second, The place we promised in our early days. All beautiful films, very worth watching.

There is a transgender in Yu Yu Hakusho however she's a villain, gets felt up and then loses a fight.

Full Metal Panic. The anime version of the Sci-Fi novels by Shouji Gatou. It's very funny most of the time, but also has a great story. Shouji Gatou is an author, who really has a great sense of Japanese humor. As an alternative if you don't enjoy the main series, there's a spin off based off a small collection of stories which only has humor as a goal, named Full metal Panic Fumoffu

Have you ever watched anything like School Rumble, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Wallflower, Moon Phase, Love Hina, or Maria Holic?

School Rumble is basically a love-triangle comedy. The main guy is in love with a clueless girl who is in love with an equally vacant boy. I really enjoyed it.

Ouran Highschool Host Club is about a girl who cross dresses as a boy to join a club of boys who entertain girls. It's got a good bit of comedy.

Wallflower is about four pretty boys trying to make their land lady's reclusive, horror-film obsessed, slobby neice into a 'lady'.

Moon Phase is basically about a spoilt brat vampire girl. It has some comedy and a good overall story.

Love Hina is a traditional 'harem' type anime. Nerdy boy running an apartment full of girls. Has some funny things, but I personally get annoyed by the girl who's supposed to be in love with the boy always beating the crap out of him. :lol:

Maria Holic is about a lesbian girl (who is allergic to men) going to a Catholic all girls school and, incidently, her struggles with constant nose-bleeds. :o There's also a cross-dressing sadistic boy, who has traded places with his sister, and gives the main girl a difficult time. (It's only subtitled.)

And lastly, have you ever tried Sgt Frog?

Not certain if any of these suggestions are your cup of tea, or things you haven't already seen, but I wanted to try and help, as I really love anime. ^_^

I was a big fan of Ranma 1/2. It certainly has a transgender type theme, and it's funny as heck.

Scrapped Princess, Death Note, Angel Beats!, NANA, Rurouni Kenshin, Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and Ginga Densetsu Weed round out my list of favorite anime.

Also, some people count Avatar: The Last Airbender as an anime even though it's US-made. Totally worth watching. Love it.

D.Gray-Man, Saiyuki, Black Cat...

I know a few "trans" anime however they are hentai/porn, and the characters serve only that purpose (not very tasteful...)

The key animes such as Clannad, Kanon and Air are funny but expect to cry or at least feel sad. I'd also like to second ranma 1/2. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Chobits are two of my favourites. Then for an anime with transgender there is Wandering Son which isn't funny but it deals with some of the issues of a boy and girl both transgender trying to get through life. The manga is definetly better but I enjoyed the anime.

Im glad someone menshiend Rurouni Kenshin I love that anime as it was my first anime and I rewatch it every year.

But I know of 2 animes with a transgneder theme one is Ranma 1/2 which was menshind before its about a guy who turns into a girl when cold water touches him and he turns back into himself when hot water touches him. The other is Kampfer its really hard to explain but its about a guy who was chosen to to fight in an alien proxy battle and all the fighters have to be female so he is turned into a girl (that luckey duck) Kampfer is deffently PG15 and dont even watch ep. 14 its like a mm from being hentai, unless you like that.

I prefure manga to anime and I know of many transgender theamed mangas. Too many to list hear but if your intristed pm me.

I've been watching an anime on youtube called Cheeky Angel, though it's also known as Tenshi na Konamaiki. The premise is at the age of nine, Megumi is an aggressive fighting boy. One day he saves a strange man from a gang of other children. In return, Megumi receives a magical book. After accidentally bleeding on the book, a genie appears and offers to grant him a wish. Megumi wishes to become a strong man's man. The trickster genie inadvertently turns Megumi into a woman. The series is all about Megumi trying to cope with her new gender and leaving behind the traits of her old gender.

Unfortunately there's nowhere to legitimately purchase a legal copy. All the copies being sold on eBay and Amazon are recorded off of a TV using a VCR and tapes, then converted digitally, slapped onto a DVD and distributed that way. Bootlegged tv series really.

Still though, all 50 episodes are on youtube. Some in pieces and varying standards of video/audio quality. The first part of the first episode is here:

YOU TUBE CHEEKY ANGEL

It takes a few episodes to really hook you in, but I highly encourage you to give it a go. It really is a great series.

      Thank you all for the support. I do know that it takes a strong person to be vulnerable.  But when a bond is ravaged I’ve always looked to those that have the courage to move on as the strong ones. Not the ones that stay.    I just can’t seem to truly forgive her for what’s happened. For the awful thing she’s done. And before transition I would have walked away. And I have. I stayed this time because I’m scared to face life With 2 kids 2 exes and no support at home.    I have seen that I still love her. But I love my ex too. Not exactly the same way. But at one time it was the same with her. I can’t help but think this is all for stupid reasons based on a fallacy that I can’t survive with my kids without her. And unless I can figure out how to forgive her for real like in my heart and soul idk what to do.    On the flip side this is the first time that my partner has ever done their part to fix the problem as well. And she’s done everything I’ve asked. And she’s done more. She’s an amazing person really and like I said I do love her. I just can’t figure out if my morals or my feelings are what I need to listen to. And I guess that’s a personal thing I need to figure out. I just wish it wasn’t so hard. And all encompassing.

      This is very important!  My wife had this situation recently for a routine test that needed to be evaluated by a non-affiliated doctor.  Ouch!  Jani

      There are no boundaries as long as you are safe.  Lots of women enjoy "masculine" activities and many men like "feminine" activities.  Don't fret over it.     BTW I am still active with my car hobby.   Jani

      Hello.  I wonder if this was a gender counselor?  It does appear as if they were asking tough questions to make you consider all the options.  You need to be honest with yourself about what in your life would change (physically and emotionally) if you had this surgery.   I do think her statement about being a freak was a little harsh and not necessarily correct.  If possible you might consider a new therapist.    Jani

      Hello Dave/Dina.  Welcome aboard.     I will just mention that you are close to Fenway Health and they are very caring.  I love my doctor there.     Please join in the conversation! Jani

      Hi I recently went to a therapist who was asking me questions my birth sex is female i identify as a woman but i have wanted top surgery she began talking about all the surgery and risks felt like she was trying to put me off wanted to know about my family asked me why I want top surgery as a woman I have always seen breasts as a nuisance a hindrance wearing bras and so on she came to the conclusion that it was not about my identity that was an issue one thing she said that really stuck into me she said  how would I feel in society as a breathless woman.she said society would class me as a freak I was shocked by her words and feel really crap about myself I am femme presenting and I feel like she did not believe me about wanting top surgery or did not see things from my perspective i suppose life as a breastless woman would be hard on a binary world  she asked to think about my relationship to my chest and I feel like I am being encouraged to think about them it just feels really jarring i guess this was a nh s therapist

      Can I just say?.. I think you're a strong woman for staying. I'd say that regardless of gender. You're strong for staying! And for admitting the vulnerability and the hurt. But wanting to maintain the relationship through it all anyway is strength. Wounds do heal.    ❤️ ~Toni
    • SugarMagnolia
      Kirsten, may I suggest a slight tweak to how you're thinking about this? Instead of thinking of yourself as a weak woman may I suggest simply thinking of yourself as a woman who's strong enough to allow herself to be vulnerable? When you are open to others, you are open to being hurt. That's not weakness. It's faith and love and trust. When that trust is violated it hurts...a lot. If you weren't a strong woman you wouldn't be able to let people in and you wouldn't be hurt like that. But you also wouldn't be able to truly love and be loved. Take heart and know that you're strong enough to get through this!

      Just another voice in the chorus.  Please go to the clinic you mentioned and get some professional help!  Even short term self administration can cause a lifetime of problems with few positive results.   Hugs,   Charlize

      So Rokkatru is an off-shoot of Asatru or Heathenism, which is Paganism specializing in Norse mythology. Rokkatru focuses on the worship of Rokkar -- IE Frost Giants. The most popular members of the pantheon is the shape shifting, genderfluid, and pansexual God of fire, mischief, and stories Loki and his family. Because Loki can take the form of both God or Goddess or even androgyny, he has become the patron saint of queens, so to speak.    I run a Rokkatru blog on Tumblr where I am out as FtM and have a little over 300 followers. Is anyone else interested in this?

      This.    You have to be comfortable with yourself and comfortable with living on your own before you can be comfortable in a committed relationship.    Pansexuality has been trending for a while in the LGBT community. At least, among us younger members. For those of you who haven't heard it, pansexuality is the attraction to all genders, including transgenders. So there are definitely people out there. They are just part of a younger generation.    Also there are people who see being trans as a fetish. Which is....Or can be problematic, IMO, because then you are basically being used as a play thing, I feel like. Unless you're into that, of course.

      Kristen i'm so sorry to read about your struggles accepting the actions of your wife.  An incident like that can certainly haunt one but hopefully in time it will heal both in the relationship and in your feeling of weakness.  I remember feeling so vulnerable during early transition.  With the coming of confidence in myself as a woman came a feeling of acceptance and strength. Just like the hairs on your chin time it can be dealt with.  It takes a great deal of strength to get past the fear we all face at first.  I doubt any of us are really weak.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Even on prescribed medication, I still developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) that necessitated that I go off hormones for nearly a year.  Luckily the blood clot did not go into any crucial organs, but I now have medicines I really don't want that I will take for the rest of my life.  We like to keep our members with us here alive and in good spirits.
