When you think of gay anime characters, you probably think of yaoi and yuri, but great LGBT anime characters can be found in other genres. Learn about the history of sexuality and gender in Japan, how their attitudes differ from the US, and which LGBT characters challenge stereotypes.
In the wide world of anime localization, it's easy to lose things in translation. Whether through censorship or rewrites, some shows don't play to overseas audiences exactly as the creators wrote them. Sometimes the results are understandable. Sometimes they're funny. Sometimes they're weird.
