"We need an anime protagonist who accurately depicts teenage depression, trauma, and anxiety."
We had that. His name was Shinji Ikari and you fuckers called him annoying. Fuck you.

you can just tell that Nicki Minaj is the kind of person that when you’re telling a story and everyone else in the group is talking over you, she’s making direct eye contact with you and paying extra attention so that you don’t get discouraged and stop mid-story
this is actually so true
This is my favorite motherfucking thing about getting closer to Halloween every FUCKING YEAR
Pluto becoming a planet again has really taught us that if we complain hard enough about something, we can change things, even on a planetary level
I MADE THIS AT 2AM AND FORGOT ABOUT IT AHAHAHA
love is like…when you look at someone and you feel like you just ate two whole cinnabons and you might die but you’re ok with that because you just ate two entire cinnabons
this is Hourou Musuko, an anime/manga about a young trans girl and her friends, all figuring out their gender identity and sexual orientations
yo yo i just double-checked and it is a real thing and also available on crunchyroll for free!
It’s also on KissAnime for free which is a website I recommend 1000 times more since they provide HQ anime without having to pay anything, and they have a wider selection than Crunchyroll
I watched the first episode. I can’t vouch for the rest of it but the first episode made my heart swell a bit. A lot of it is about finding those people that you can make your guides and role models, and that’s not something I feel like we get to see a lot, we see the kids just left to forge through on their own in the big and scary.
Wavedash why did you do this to me.
The anime seems to grab just a slice of the full manga’s story (obviously) but despite Horou Musuko being one of my favorite manga of all time, I never did finish the anime. I didn’t think it was all that interesting an adaptation, and it’s so good as a comic.
The Horou Musuko manga is not only good, it’s really important. It follow a transgendered girl and a transgendered boy and it follows them encountering and stuggling with:
- trans* objectification
- the intersection of gender identity and sexuality
- what adult life will be like as a trans* person
- experimenting with (“trying on”) gender signifiers
- evolving identities
- binary questioning
- being a partner to a tans* person
All while mired in Japanese society and expectations.
Luckily for EVERYONE, Fantagraphics press is translating and publishing the comic is BEAUTIFUL hardbound volumes.
But if you don’t have the money, I know you can easily find scanlations online, which are translated all the way to the end (Fantagraphics is about half way.)
That comic about trans* youth you were always looking for?
Here it is.
a good artist knows where to draw the line
