On Japanese Transgender Hentai

9 08 2013

Japan has a huge marked for transgender fiction and erotica. Indeed, it seems the theme permeates all types of media: stories, movies and comics.

The female to male crossdreamers have their yaoi subculture, producing comics about gay male relationships, many of which are pornographic in nature.

Their male to female counterparts look for gender bending anime (animated movies) and manga (comics). One sub-genre of manga is hentai, comics with explicit depictions of sex.

I have put up two posts on Japanese hentai over at Rebecca’s World:

Japan, the empire of transgender comics.

The Gender Bender Fiction Index

28 01 2012

Stephan Sokolow has set up a directory devoted to transgender fiction, comics, games, movies, TV shops and more. It has been in beta since 2009, and I think it is time to give it some more attention.

The site contains a vast database of artistic works and their characters, and covers all types of gender bending.

The site can be used as a starting point for studies of gender bending in the arts. What makes it truly useful is that it also contains links to other sites where these works of art are described or discussed.

TG Caps, the sister site of TG Comics

TG Comics is one of the leading sites of illustrated TG Fiction and has already been covered by TFCC.

In December 2008 Femur & friends over at TG Comics decided to split TG Comics in two, establishing TG Caps, a site devoted mainly to modified fan art and derivatives of already existing comics, TV series and movies.

This art includes capped images and covers, as well as new, original, stories accompanying them.

There are also a few photo comics, previously found over at TG Comics.

Jana’s Transgender Manga And Anime

18 09 2008

The Japanese comics and animated movie industries — producing manga and anime, respectively — delivers a lot of transgender erotica. The problem is to find it and, for the Non-Japanese, to read it.

Fortunately, there are sites out there that try to help us in this respect. Jana’s TG Manga and Anime is one of them.

The site contains long lists of TG related content. It does not lead you to the comic strips or movies themselves, though. In order to find them, you will have to make use of other sites.

Jana says:

“If you want to get general information about the titles listed here, you must try in other sites, here the information will center only in the TG content in the different titles.”

This means that the site brings newcomers only one step of the way. Jana does provide links to other online resources on the home page though, sites that might help you find the gems she is recommending.

The site is a little bit hard to navigate. Here is a link to the list of titles.

Lustomic.com – forced feminization videos and comics

5 09 2008

What a strange name: Lustomic. At first I thought it said Lustcomic (which would have made more sense), but nevermind… Unlike most sites reviewed here, this site is not free.

Lustomic sells forced femme comics and videos, stories about boys men forcefully being changed into sluts and sissies (shemales mostly).

I have checked a few of the comic books, and they are of a high quality. Many of them are beautifully drawn, often in  a French or a Belgian “bande dessinée” style (that is a good thing!).

So although I find paying 11 US$ for a PDF file a little bit too steep, they are normally worth it.

I have not checked the quality of the videos.

TG Comics

TG Comics is the most professionally designed site in the history of TG fiction.

What is even more important is that behind that elegant facade there are a large number of great TG comics, hand drawn as well as computer animated.

Moreover, if you look around you will also find photo stories, mock up comic book covers and more.

While you are there: Take a look at the links section! It is one of the most comprehensive and extensive on the Web.

Transgender caption discussion forums

4 09 2008

The two major discussion forums for TG captioning — i.e. the art of combining erotic photos and drawings with ultra-short stories — are Rachel’s Haven and A Bimbo’s Sanctuary.

Which one is best is a matter of taste. It is a kind of Pepsi/Coca Cola thing, really, although some may possibly say that A Bimbo’s Sanctuary (also known as Feeling Femme) has a larger percentage of bimbos on board. (“Bimbo” is here considered a good thing!)

Both forums asks you to sign of for a free membership before you can post messages. In order to get access to the caption galleries, you will have to post a certain number of posts. That is not too hard, in any case. On Rachel’s Haven a lot of caps are also posted outside the gallery, for everyone to see.

The forums also have categories for other types of discussions, including recommended sites and videos and transgender issues.

Really, you should explore them both!
