Imagine being a man who is unexpectedly transformed into a woman. How would it feel to suddenly have a completely different set of body parts, and a completely different set of social expectations to meet? This harrowing situation is ripe for both drama and humor, and it's the story at the center of many gender switch manga.
Manga characters who switch genders have their biological sex change, often through magical means, while still retaining their original identity. Sometimes it happens due to surgery, or even due to one person multiple personalities with more than one gender. Whatever the case, manga about gender swapping can be totally fascinating. Some of the best gender switch manga include series like Kampfer and Ranma 1/2, as well as the recently popular Your Name.
