TTT: Top Ten Tuesday-An Ode to Androgyny

I’ve been wanting to make a dedicated Top Ten Tuesday centered around androgynous characters for some time now. It has always been at the back of my mind. Today is that day my pandas! I am here to bring you some of my favorite androgynous characters in anime. But first! An ode to androgyny (this poem was written by a user named Nikki No Love on Hello Poetry. You can find the poem here:

Depression is masculine,
Happiness is feminine, 
Anger is androgynous, 
Fear is anonymous. To see ones self is to hate even more,
To think of one’s self is to think of what’s in store
Oh, how the body is false,
The mind is a prison made of faults.
Stuck inside as I walk the line,
Forced inside to where the sun never shines.” 

Let’s just jump right on in to today’s list!

1. Kohaku from Midnight Occult Civil Servants

  1. “Padparadscha from Land of the Lustrous”

    You could almost just say ” from Land of the Lustrous!” But Padparadscha was probably the best choice. What a great show…

    I liked seeing Emile on the list. Emile’s situation was contrived, and I feel like I should have dismissed the show for dramatic reasons. But I find myself rewatching it from time to time!

    And Yuu made the list! I’m happy any time I see anyone from Monthly Girls!

    And your #1, Kohaku? Who else could it be?

    Fun list!


    1. Technically this list is just favorites, but in no particular order! Ranking them would be totally different. And yes! So many great choices to choose from when it comes to Land of the Lustrous, but Padparadscha, Antarcticite, and Phos in the last volume of the manga really play on the masculine/feminine design the most out of all the other characters.
