Traps in anime and manga
« on: May 21, 2007, 05:07:31 PM »
Traps are anime characters who look, walk and talk like girls but are in fact guys.  Reverse traps are, of course, girls disguised as guys.  I'm just curious.

Traps:
Mashiro (My-Otome manga)
Mizuho (Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru)
Jun (Happiness)

Reverse traps:
Kino (Kino no Tabi)
Haruhi (Ouran)
Akira (My-HiME)

Twins from Utawarerumono -who knows what they are...

Come to think of it, I can't really say the twins in Utawarerumono are traps.  No one even knows their gender in the first place.  They're males in the game.

Their voices sound male-ish.

She's the best reverse trap.  I'll agree with that.

Again, the only trap I have ever liked is Manshiro in My Otome.  Those two series have the best traps/ reverse traps ever, I've decided.  *No love for kino*
