What are the best crossdressing anime?

Crossdressing anime is not the most popular genre out there but they are still worth looking in to. Cross-dressing is the action of wearing clothes associated with the opposite sex. In Japan, males cross-dress into cute girls for comedic purposes. This also translates to some anime with main characters who cross-dress. Both gender benders and cross-dressing have their similarities and differences. They can overlap wherein you can see the main character act and dress like the opposite sex. Although, their gender roles are not bound by the way they dress and act. There are times when crossdressing anime is more straightforward than gender bender anime because what you see is what you get. Regardless, crossdressing anime also offers something different to viewers. Either the main characters cross-dress based on varied circumstances. Like in Himegoto, the main character decides to cross-dress instead of paying his debt. Since he wants to show his gratitude to the high school girls who paid off his debt, he decides to dress as a girl throughout high school. Aside from that, crossdressing is also a form of self-expression for the protagonist. Case in point would be Haruhi Fujioka from the anime Ouran High School Host Club. She is often misgendered but it doesn't put her off. Regardless of why the anime characters cross-dress, you also get a fun story out of it.

If you fancy crossdressing, you can check out these best crossdressing anime! The list is short but you'll surely enjoy this selection filled with awesome main characters who aren't afraid to stray from the "norm".
