I am looking for some gender bender anime or transexual anime. Something involving a guy who crossdresses or feels he should be a women or vice-versa with a girl who feels like a guy.

I know there are a LOT of this genre in Manga but I am specifically looking for anime on this topic.

Thanks so much

I think the most obvious example is Hourou Musuko which aired last season. It's about two students (one male, one female) who want to be seen as the opposite sex. It deals with a lot of realistic issues, it's very interesting, and the art is amazing!

Ouran high school host club - girl dresses up as a male 'host'
Princess Princess - 3 guys dress in girl clothes as the 'princesses' of their all-boy-school
Kampfer - A guy turns into a girl every time he needs his 'kampfer' abilities

Kuragehime's male lead is a crossdresser. He's not transgender though, he just likes dressing up as a female.

Hourou Musuko as has already been recommended is very good. Despite you saying you wanted anime, I personally think the manga is much better.

Hourou Musuko might be what you're looking for, like Lunacie said.

Kampfer was good up until the end. I can't really recommend Kashimashi since I haven't finished it yet but so far so good plus it also has good reviews for the type.

Hourou Musuko. The only downside is that it ends way too soon but it's a great watch.

Well...I haven't come across any anime like you described but there are a couple of shows featuring characters with guys that can change in girls, Ranma 1/2 and Tetsuwan Birdy Decode.

Some anime that fit your description:

-Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl
-Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru
-Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru: Futari no Elder sort of a sequel to the above.
-MM!! one of the guys there likes to crossdress, but he isn't trans or anything.

Well that's about it off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure there are way more anime with what you are looking for in them.

Shangri la (a transgender character plays a large role in this series and is almost in every eps. after I believe eps. 5 or 6)

Tokyo Godfathers (there's a transgender individual in this and they play a large role in the show.)

Oh yeah and Maria Holic (this has a guy dressed as a girl going to an all girls school)
