I wish Maid Dragon was more gay and less pedophiliac, but at least I have it to thank for introducing me to a lot of my friends and thus by extension helping me realize I'm trans and gay.

Does anyone remember what that one genderbend manga was called where the main character abruptly enters a cocoon at one point and it's never brought up again?

Someone mentioned at one point it has an interquel, and I forgot the name. (Though apparently it does the "well im a girl now so i guess i like guys" thing)

Shape Shift With Me


i know it's not actually an lgbt anime, but can i take a second to give a shoutout to the 1981 osamu tezuka/sanrio movie The Fantastic Adventures of Unico?




Unico is a pink haired unicorn boy who can grant people wishes when he feels true love for them. The gods in heaven, who are all old white men, fear that he is taking control away from them by bringing people too much joy on his own, so they hire a spirit called the Night Wind to assassinate him. Unico is forced into exile and wanders the world meeting outcasts and making friends with them while trying to grant them what their heart truly desires. His horn can also slice through solid stone and turn into a drill, and sometimes he transforms into a beautiful horned pegasus to fight evil.

There's something about Unico that really deeply resonates with me. he's just this lonely little pink haired boy that wants to love people but social forces outside of his control are always trying to pull him away from his friends. one of the first things he does in the movie is make friends with the Devil of Solitude and teach him that it's more fun to have friends than to be alone, but then Unico immediately has to flee from the old white men who want him dead.

I basically think Unico was a gay icon way ahead of his time

edit: I haven't seen it but there's also a movie where Unico saves the planet from the ravages of manmade climate change

I'm not sure if I should ask here or in the shoujo thread but any recommendations for completed manga with a trans main character (or at least part of the main "group" if that applies) that's not overly tragic or sad?

double house is only 3 chapters and is clearly unfinished but the three chapters are good and the last chapter does kinda have some catharsis to it that works

yuureitou is pulpy af so I'm not sure if that fits what you want but the male lead is trans

honestly one of the big problems is that most series until recently seemed to more focus on cross-dressing characters, in ways that seem like they were almost intended to be trans but there wasn't quite a grasp on the concept

yuureitou was really bizarre, but I think I liked it. It's kind of a blur.

There was the gay guy who kept denying he was into men and like half of the main characters were some gender identity other than cis?

I can't remember when it's revealed Tetsuo is a trans man but I do remember feeling a bit jealous. I... think that was the first 'serious' (ish) portrayal of a trans man I'd seen in media? Not counting crossdressing stuff where the person in question doesn't identify as male.

At any rate, gave me some pondering.

Was the one person (Tsukasa or something like that) in .hack//sign a trans man? I vaguely recall them having a male character and being female in "real life" but not the reasoning behind it.

There might have been another anime or manga like that but I can't remember if it was before or after yuureitou.
