Hourou Musuko Wandering Son

I recently finished the anime, “Hourou Musuko Wandering Son.”  It explored a topic that many regular shows don’t even dare to touch on. Being transgender, or cross dressing. The show is about Shuichi and his new class. A lot of things are changing this year. He and his best friend Makoto have been struggling with their sexuality. Dressing and speaking like girls, even though they are both biological boys, and have to act that way in front of everyone else.  Shuichi’s sister has always looked down upon this, and views him as a freak. This year Shuichi meets a girl who is in a similar situation as he is. Takatsuki is a girl who wishes to be a boy. Together the two help each other try to figure out who they are and what they will become. The show has a lot of action following it’s plot of love triangles, social acceptance, and just learning who you are. I loved the show, and would highly recommend it, even though it does touch on a bit of a sensitive subject. I give it ten out of ten stars!
