A scan from the upcoming issue of WAaI! magazine reveals that Norio Tsukudani's 4-koma genderbending manga series Himegoto will be receiving an anime adaption.

Synopsis
Hime Arikawa is a high-school boy with a huge debt, and he is saved by the girls of his school's student council after being chased down by yakuza debt collectors. The student council agrees to pay off his debt if he'll join the student council and spend his high-school life cross-dressing. (Source: MU)

The manga series began publishing in November 2011 and has since had one volume released with the second volume being released April 2014.

Well I dropped the manga, but I'll watch the anime. Please get male voice actor for male characters (before crossdressing).

Dunno. This could be hilariously good or ridiculously bad. I also wonder if this is going to a short?

I'll wait for more info.

Sounds okay. It always amuses me when the reason for crossdressing seems so absurd. Hopefully the VA will be good.

No wonder the debt collectors nearly got him, who in the world names their boy anything that means princess, it's asking for trouble.

Anyone knows if yuri will be in this? If so, I'll give it a shot.

I'm not familiar with the manga but the synopsis sounds like Ouran High School Host Club to me but reversed lol. Either way I'm looking forward to this.

It looks more like a ~5 minute series which probably is for the best.

As I've been on a streak of gender-bender themed hentai manga reading recently, this comes as quite a welcomed surprise.

I have no problem with crossdressing anime or genderbending, but that premise sounds awful. I already hate the student council for apparently forcing him to do it for no apparent reason at all.
Why not more anime like Wandering Son or Genshiden Nidaime where the guy does it because he wants to?

They released one volume after two years? How exactly do they want to make an anime out of this? Filler?

I thought this was the BL manga where half the people in the all boys school had to crossdress for whatever reason, and I didn't like it but this is different, so I'll watch it.

Yeah FukuJun sounds like a great seiyuu for the main character.

The premise sounds episodic and dry. Hopefully 3 minute episodes? Actually, that's a foregone conclusion considering the fact it's only two volumes long and a 4-koma.

That's a guy in name only.

Furthermore, she doesn't even look attractive, no distinctive nose, painstakingly large eyes, unrefined features, problems abound.

The problem I have with this kind of series is that... the main character is not drawn to look like a guy cross dressing as a girl. The main character is drawn as a girl. That's it. They try to variate from the cute girls doing cute things but it's not going to be much different because of this fact.

Unless they employ a male as the voice of the main character. That might change things. But if that's not the case he won't even be a guy anymore. This just bothers me to no end. If Arikawa maybe identified as a girl I wouldn't mind but he doesn't so???

Eh it's a pet peeve of mine.

Okay wow. This was definitely one of the last manga I would have expected to get an adaption but I'm definitely going to watch since I'm enjoying it and it's spinoffs.

Some casts & staff:

Yūki Kuwahara as Hime Arikawa
Yuka Matenrō (Yuka Saotome) as 18-Kin-san ("Rated 18+-san")
Saki Ono as President Unko
Hisako Tōjō as Beru-sempai (Albertina)

The female castmembers, under the name Ai Mai Mii Main ("I My Me Mine"), will perform the opening and ending theme songs.

Takeyuki Yanase (animation director on Excel Saga, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is directing the anime at Asahi Production, and Kazuho Hyodo (Robot Girls Z, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World) is writing the scripts. Masaaki Sakurai (Demonbane, G-Taste, Nozoki Ana) is designing the characters.

Pretty much sum up my feelings. Is the "crossdressing" really useful and/or adds something of noteworthy to the story? And is this something that could've worked without the "crossdressing" part? Each characters dress like girls, talk like girls complete with cutesy tone, and do cutesy stuffs that you can easily find in every Kirara manga. What does then make it any different than your standard cute girls doing cute things?

I just find it really lame when mangaka simply use crossdressing as gimmick and nothing else
