These characters may require some reading between the lines. Join as we count down our picks for the Top 10 Androgynous Anime Characters. Suggestion Tool►► Subscribe►► Facebook►► Twitter►► Instagram►► Channel Page►►

Anime is known for having characters whose genders are difficult to discern, but these ones take the cake. We’ll be basing our entries not on their degree of total gender ambiguity, but on how well they blur the line between both binary genders. That may sound like splitting hairs, but there is a difference, we assure you.

  1. Jakotsu from Inuyasha….I thought he was a girl at first until it was revealed he was a guy. And Nuriko from Fushigi Yugi….he was shocking when you found out he was a male not a woman!

  2. This is now. My most favorite. And the most important. Video. Ever!
    Its got Corona its got Haruhi its got Grell but most of all its got CHIHIRO ?

  3. No Thirteen from bnha? I mean, Morgan Berry ( their english va ) said herself that they were nonbinary. Which isn’t exactly the same as androgynous but given the flexibility of this video they could have been included.

  4. I know three characters that sort of fall into this category. Two are transgendered and one is a cross dresser. Aoi Futaba from you're under arrest, the demon Miyuki from yu yu hakusho, and Nuriko from Fushigi Yugi

  5. How the fuck would ciel qualify?? He cross dressed once to help save women from being mutilated, he’s always been very set in his gender as male, even had lizzy, there’s no questioning weather he is male or female it says from the get go male and he very prevalent on that
