The Best Anime Traps Ever
A unique aspect of anime is how it depicts society.
By doing so, it implements every social stereotype in a fresh and innovative way.
The term “Trap” can be considered rude when it is used to refer to people who do not adhere to gender stereotypes.
However, the word is well-known among regular anime and manga viewers.
Here is a list of the top anime traps ever. There are some cute ones among them.
19. Hime Arikawa, Himegoto (2014)
Would you be able to go to school if crossed-dressing were to be forced on you? Himegoto’s Hime Arikawa probably has the answer.
He inherited a lot of debt from his parents. He is now in a bind as he cannot pay them off, so what is the best solution?
His debt has been covered by the student council, but there’s a catch. In order to attend school, he needs to dress as a girl.
Despite resenting being in the position that he is in most of the time, Hime does sometimes question whether he is a man.
18. Kikuchi Makoto, The [email protected] (2011)
Next, we’ll take a look at Kikuchi Makoto. ‘The [email protected]’ features her as one of the main characters. Kimiko Kikuchi is a world-renowned pop star.
Her boyish looks have helped her to attract a lot of girl fans despite the fact that she is a girl.
Despite not being a transgender or cross-dresser entirely, she uses her opposite gender characteristics to achieve her goals. Deep down, however, she remains a woman.
17. Saika Totsuka, Oregairu (2013)
The reason this character is on this list is because I explained what Trap means in the intro.
Saika Totsuka is a boy.
Despite his attempts to appear manly, Saika’s soft nature and feminine looks cause Hachiman, the main character of the episode, to mistake him for a girl.
Throughout the series, I have seen this mistake often, so much so that I cannot ignore it. As a matter of fact, Saika actually lures people into believing that he is female.
16. Kuranosuke Koibuchi, Princess Jellyfish (2010)
The anime character KuranoSuke Koibuchi can often be seen as transgender.
Despite coming from a wealthy family with a political background, he dislikes politics.
Fashion interests him more than anything else.
Muranosuke dresses as a female and believes that every woman can be beautiful. Under the alias Kurako, he disguises his gender by crossdressing.
15. Souta Takanashi, Working!!! (2010)
A major character in the anime series ‘Working!!!’ is Sota Takanashi.’. Occasionally, he works at a restaurant called Wagnaria as a waiter.
In addition to the cross-dressing, he also dresses as a waitress.
In Southa’s world, everything cute and small is fascinating, but people over 12 are called hicks and ugly.
The name of his female alias is Kotori.
14. Honjō Kamatari, Rurouni Kenshin (1996):
The story of ‘Rurouni Kenshin’ is about a samurai who vows never to kill anyone in the future.
He carries a sword with him that has been sharpened on the wrong side, making it difficult to land a killing blow.
He is not the subject of this entry. This story is about Honj* Kamatari, a transgender man who loves to be womanly.
Often, he dresses as a woman and flirts with others.
But he gets really serious when he is about to fight.
13. Chihiro Fujisaki, Danganronpa (2013)
Chihiro Fujisaki can fool anyone with his appearance. It is difficult to tell that he is a boy when he is cross-dressing.
In contrast to the other male cross-dressers in this list, Chihiro has some harsher reasons for doing so.
He was bullied constantly and told that he was too weak for a boy. In an attempt to avoid being judged as a man, he cross-dressed.
He is one of the dead traps on this list.
12. Haku, Naruto (2004)
Haku was one of those characters in the ‘Naruto’ series who let their mark on viewers even though they were only in a few episodes.
Having inherited his mother’s Ice Release Kekkei Genkai, he uses it daily. Upon being found out, Haku’s father gathered a mob and killed his mother.
He managed to save himself by killing everyone with his ability.
Naruto praised Himaku for his feminine appearance, saying that he was prettier than Sakura.
Team 7 mortally wounded Haku in a fierce battle. He died as a result.
