Unlike other anime series that feature guys crossdressing as girls, Himegoto takes it to the next level by featuring multiple crossdressers and by not shying away from the fact that its otokonokos, despite their appearances, still have male anatomy. The extent to which the show highlights the latter can be described with many words, and I feel that “commendable” should be one of them. This should go without saying, but this post will feature NSFW images.
To provide some background information, trap characters have become more and more prominent in anime over the years. In 2010, a manga anthology (WAaI!) for series exclusively about crossdressing guys was launched. Unfortunately, it is currently on hiatus, but it did manage to give us Himegoto in its short lifespan.
Himegoto was very upfront about the fact that its main selling point was fanservice almost from the get-go. Hime started the series off in a maid outfit and it wasn’t long before he was on the ground and giving the audience the first of many bulge-tastic pantyshots.
To make things even better (or worst?), Hime was not the only crossdresser in the series. There would also be Hime’s younger brother Kaguya and the trio that made up the disciplinary committee: Oda Mitsunaga and his maid Hiro, and Servant #1, the only girl in the committee. And of course, she is a reverse trap.
Despite being side characters, Kaguya, Oda, and Hiro would have a decent amount of fanservice moments in the show, and things would culminate during the 11th episode, in which all of the characters visit Mitsunaga at his house. Eventually, Hime, Kaguya, and Mitsunaga dress up in kimonos. Hime then proceeds to trip over and takes the other two to the ground with him and exposing themselves in a rather impressive manner.
To quote Patrick Stewart, “I’ve seen everything, you know. I’ve seen it all.”
