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.

      I have definitely noticed a loss in strength too.  I struggle with things two handed I was able to move easily one handed.   Though with all the posting about cars and bikes it brings up another side of this for me.   I was never interested in either growing up but always thought I should of been back when I a teen and even through adulthood.  I mean nothing speaks male as loud as being into mechanical work on such things.  now I say that and I’ve spent most of my adult career being Maintenance Technician in versions manufacturing facilities.  Mostly machine maintenance and robotics.  The more technical side of it.   Still cars have eluded me all these years.  I don’t work in maintenance capacity any longer.  I got tired of the lay offs.    I’m  a BioMed no and it’s much nicer. I get to wear basically golf clothes.  Albeit men’s still but I just wear a lot of bright colors and pink all the time plus no grease under my finger nails.  Lol

      Grindr has changed a little bit if you want to focus on how it is now trans inclusive, but the majority of men are either just dabbling in anything considered gay or just want a hookup. I have a profile there and have not even come close to getting a date there because even though I clearly state my identity and role I get all kinds of desperate or gross messages. The best conversations I’ve had there are with other trans women who just want to talk, mainly commiserating about how disgusting the guys act. I don’t think any site or apps are really good for transgender dating, even those that are specifically for transgender people, because they are all full of people who abuse the medium or troll.

      Made it back to the Ozarks finally! At my closest point to you I spent 2 hours stuck on the freeway in a traffic jam crossing the Hudson River. It was a long day! I got back to find my HVAC system not working, so I have to scramble before the cold weather sets in. Then get my studio set up and start work. Along the way, I'm trying to relearn to play the guitar. Meetings with doctors this week to see what my metabolism is up to, plus the oncologist to provide follow up support from my cancer surgery. Lots of things to do! Hugs and smiles to you all!

      Thank you Sabine for expressing that so well. It has been a struggle to find myself, so it's very nice to know I'm not alone in my experience.

      Once upon a time. In a land far far away. I was an die hard home mechanic. I have vivid memorys of changing a clutch on a Vauxhall cavalier in the snow. Thats how dedicated i was. Taking an engine from an old ford, stripping it down to components and then putting it all back together again did not even phase me. Also saved me fortunes in Garage bills. Even before that I was a Motorbike fanatic and still hold a full bike licence. But havent been on one for about Twenty Five years. I wouldnt like to recall the amount of wrecked bikes i got my hands on and rebuilt from the wheels up.   As its been said. There is female mechanics. But honestly i have no interest in working on cars or indeed bikes anymore.   I still have a very keen interest in classic cars. When i say classic I mean Anything pre 1985.   But as far as working on them goes. I am physically not strong enough or have the tenacity to even want to do it anymore.   The Hormones took my strength, and wow did it take my physical grunt, and the wanting to do this anymore.  I can still impress my partner by seeing something on the road classic and being able to name it on site. But im just not intersted in what makes it tick. It also doesnt make it better that i was doing this in my prime and now i have waved that goodbye.   However. Now I enjoy fashion,  clothes and yes shoes to. Which is a bonus as i work in retail.  I wouldnt say its a hobbie as such but  really enjoy it.   In a way the hormones do alter your personality in that sense  in my opnion,. Well it did for me. I still have a wealth of male only knowledge so to speak. but the implimentation just isnt fourthcoming anymore.    With DIY I can still do things but as long as they not to physical. Such as hang wallpaper etc. I was also good at that. In fact i was good with my hands period and would be happy to attempt most things   In a way having that knowledge is a good thing. as if i have to take my car to the garage i play dumb but actually will know if they are trying to get one over on me.   I do not feel sad that it changed my outlook from what i knew. If anything its giving me the knowledge from another life as i see it. Practical knowledge is never a bad thing.

      .Trans is by no means a modern thing. Not by a long chalk. Especially Hinduism.   To Name a few.   Shikhandi: This warrior in the Kurukshetra war in most tellings of the Mahabharata was female at birth but changed gender later in life. Born Shikhandini, the girl in one version of the story was raised as a male by King Drupada, the girl's father. The king even had her married to the princess of Dasharna. Upon complaints from the new bride, Shikhandini fled into the forest and met a Yaksha and exchanged genders. Now taking the name Shikhandi, he remained a man until his death at the battle of Mahabharat.   Shiva and Parvati: The supreme god of Shaivism, Shiva has often been held as the ultimate embodiment of masculinity, but as far back as the Kushan era, there have also been depictions of Shiva in  an androgynous composite of Shiva and his wife, Parvoti. The form originated when Parvoti, desiring to share Shiva’s experiences, asked for their forms to literally be joined. “What is being said is that if the inner masculine and feminine meet, you are in a perpetual state of ecstasy,” explains Hindu scholar Sadhguru. Most often, the Ardhanarishvara is depicted with the female form of Parvoti on the left and the masculine attributes of Shiva on the right   Bahuchara Mata: Bahuchara Mata was traveling with her sisters and threatened by the marauder Bapiya. After she and her sisters self-immolated their own breasts, Bapiya was cursed with impotence until he began to dress an act as a Woman Today, the Hindu goddess is worshipped as the originator and patron of the hijras, trans and intersex Bangladeshis considered in the faith to be of a “third gender.”     Its actually awesome when you look these gods up. See what they got up to.     I just copied and pasted the meanings and there spellings online. Just google them. You will see for yourself.   Great Fun fact Josie

      In Arabic, Hijra means a pilgrimage, a journey.   Also, it’s the term used to describe transgender women in India. Perhaps it’s a loan word. Perhaps it’s not. But it’s fitting that the same idea is echoed today in the word transgender. The idea of crossing a boundary, making a journey. Being trans is a pilgrimage, it’s moving from one place to another. It used to be something seen as sacred by the ancient cultures of the world. In many ways it still is. Just my musings for today.

      It’s sad because it’s someone who was a real person. Sure there was controversy about her and Dave chapelle but to his credit he bounced his jokes off of her before the controversy and she laughed at them the loudest so they pretty much blew it out of proportion. I think it says something about how Dave actually respected her input as a comedian. Maybe she was ostracized because she wasn’t playing into the politics? It certainly makes sense when her shows tended to be very small compared to other people. It goes to show how entertainment can literally be hard on the very people they claim to be supportive of. She was transgender but virtually blacklisted by the industry. Of course they didn’t openly boycott her shows but she didn’t have large audiences. There’s so many facets to people and making life an “either/or” political game is really damaging when everyone has faults or shortcomings. Comedy has suffered a lot because of political influence being so bloodthirsty lately, when it used to be all in good fun.    Virtue signaling is the term you are looking for, when someone says something to gain points for sounding correct. That’s the sadly artificial world we live in. It takes guts to stand out and be different. Which is why all this talk about being inclusive to diversity is intellectually dishonest when the political drive is to make everyone fit into the same thinking cap. That’s not how people work. That’s not how we have intellectual debate or actually work through conversation with ideas. That’s basically the same dirty word that the political end of entertainment says they are opposed to: fascism. Instead of allowing people to be different they are using a huge industry to dictate government and politics. Miriam websters definition is:    a centralized autocraticgovernment headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.    Only in this case the dictator is an ideal that is unrealistic. Just because it’s not declared officially doesn’t mean it’s not a driving force. Change comes from dialogue, not from any form of oppression. Maybe that’s a lesson here too.

      Hello Kai and thanks for the update.  I understand its hard around the house but it will pass when you are able to set out on your own.  It will happen.  Hang tough.  Soon enough you'll be able to connect with a gender therapist and from there you will have someone to speak with who understands and can help you one on one.  Until then, keep posting and sharing your thoughts.  Please don't let the anxiety get to you.   Jani

      Along with any changes in hobbies, etc. due to emotional changes brought on by hormones, age will also temper our opinions on things.  We stop doing some activities and try new things just because we can.

      I've come up on a year of going by he/him pronouns with my friend group at school. It doesn't seem like that long ago and its hard to think I have come this far already. I know a year is not that long but after questioning myself for over 2 1/2 years I feel like things are starting to make sense, I think. I feel ready to tell people, to come out and say I am still questioning but I would prefer to be called he/him. I want to try my name more and see if it is comfortable for me. I think I am getting a new job and they asked for my preferred name and gender. I wanted so badly to put down male, and my name that I'm trying but its so hard when my parents disagree with everything I do moving in that direction. I still live in the house with them and its so hard for me to do things when everything I try seems to make my mom upset. My mom basically breathed a sigh of relief when I said I wasn't going by a different name with my friends, this makes me upset because for some reason her feelings matter more to me then me being comfortable. I don't go by he/him in the house, even though my whole family knows about me question, because there is a fear that something will go wrong. That I am going to make people upset, I don't have many friends to begin with and I don't want to lose any people in my life. There is so much anxiety with coming out and I know that's part of transitioning but it feels like my social anxiety makes it all worse. I never correct people when they misgender me because I freeze up and continue on. I cant correct people to save my life and I don't pass enough to present as male, people will think of me weird and/or hate me before they know me. I know that's probably not true, but when you are so self critical of yourself you think everyone else in the world is the same to you.  I wanted to start gender therapy but the last time I asked my parents for that they got me a religious regular therapist who knows nothing about trans kids. I am scared to talk to them again and get a real gender therapist so I don't have to be so dam confused all the time. I don't have money to pay for one myself and my insurance doesn't cover it so I am stuck with my thoughts. I don't know, I guess I just needed to rant about my situation. It doesn't make things better but other people know.

      Hello EZ and welcome aboard.   I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment.  So you're on T, to assist with some medical challenges you have.  No big deal.  I'm not sure why you need to tell your work mates about your medications.  I'm not sure your fellow firemen would care about any changes.  As to that you have hidden an aspect of your life, we all have pieces we keep private.     I don't know your levels (we don't allow that on this site) but if your concerned with the beard, etc, talk to your doctor to see if you can lower your dosage a bit.  Even as a test to determine how you feel.    I'm glad you found us and signed up. Cheers,  Jani
