    Why tho. Can someone please explain to me the appeal of gender bender?

    Also your title should be throw some gender bender isekai at me. Not through

    Agree, it's mostly "man genderbend into a woman and fall for a man" and i hate that, i much prefer that it's genderbender yuri (but still having a medium dislike for genderbender / pure yuri is ton better).

    I think he asks because he don't know which ones are good or bad.

    Still, would be nice if he could set some requirements or something. There's quite a bit to go through.

    Recommendations, pick which one to start with:
    Nigotta Hitomi no Lilianne
    A little spoiler: The whole series, MC stays really young. Most of the series is focused on magic, it's not like lot of stuff can happen with a baby
    Alice Tale in Phantasmagoria
    MC get a harem (quite a few girls but only in love with 2 girls and get a daughter each with the 2).
    2 girls die, the master and the dwarf sniper/bow-user.

    Well, usually when there is a gender bender isekai, there is no harem. That is a plus.

    Personally, I prefer when gender bender leads to no romance. Often times authors feel like they must have romance and gender bender is a good way to get out of the pressure of romance for authors.

    I mean lets be honest, most WN romance is junk, harem is junk ^ junk * amount of harem members. So I'd rather stick to reading isekai stuff rather than poorly done romance.

    I was gonna write a bunch of recommendations...kinda did halfway too. But there are just too many. Just check out my reading list, there's a section for gender bender. (I'm not a fan of gender bender yuri, so there's probably only one or two of them there)

    There are a few in the 'Completed' and one in the 'Finished' list too, like 'Hakai me no Yuri' and 'I became the hero's bride'.

    I'm divided in this.
    If it's gender change once, i also don't understand the appeal beside "lack of common sense"
    If it's "the game bugged and my gender in the virtual game is wrong, and i can't changed it back" i'm just waiting for chaos when they meet in real life.
    If it's changed multiple times like "ranma 1/2" then there'll be comedy misunderstandings and chaos.. Lovely

    Dominion's End. Better than isekai. But anyway, male to female or female to male?

    As to who likes genderbenders and why, I do. I read BL/yaoi, so lots of doors are open to me when it comes to novels. But I don't read yuri, so that narrows things down a bit. I can read male to female who likes guys and female to male who still likes guys. The second scenario is a bit weirder to me, so I get why guys wouldn't like genderbenders. If the novel's good enough though, I can ignore the rest. I could read yuri, it won't disgust me, I'll just be bored with the lack of a male love interest. And being bored is very demotivating when it comes to reading.

    I'm a little curious, how would you react to a genderbender where it's a female to male who likes girls. It's kinda straight and gay at the same time, but would it be fine for you to read?

    See I agree with your first view, but for the game situation unless they're stuck in the game why do they never create a new character, or if they can't do that contact the game support and have them fix the damn glitch. Instead they're like oh well whatever guess i'll be a female/male teehee. Hell the author never even thinks of having them try that instead they jut roll with it which irks me to no end. Like at least say they contacted the game support and nothing could be done. (Although that would be retarded in its own way)

    As for the 3rd one if it's for a short amount of time like maybe 10 chapters or so it's fine, but anything over that I think is just stupid to do. (I've never watched Ranma 1/2 so I can't talk much on that)

    yeah, mostly this is the case with those genre...
    so in ranma 1/2, some characters are cursed. If they get splashed with cold water, they changed into other form (usually animal) but if they get splashed with hot water, they can turn back to their original form. Our male lead is cursed with female form, which leads to:
    • male rival A who likes his female form & wanna fight him because he thought ML is her boyfriend.
    • Male rival B who can turn into pet & act cute so female lead will hug them
    • Female rival 1 who wanna kill the female mc (clan rule) but wanna marry male mc (clan rule)
    • male mc turns to female so he get more bonus from vendors
    • Mc's father who turns to panda when he wants to escape responsibility

    Basically i love the chaos, but it's also ecchi so don't watch at work
    ranma 1/2 is fantasy (not western fantasy), gender bender, comics & anime. W strikes out of 3 but I recommend :blobsweat:

    For me, I recommend
    1) She professed herself the pupil of the wiseman (LN and WN)
    2) Demon sword maiden
    3) A wild last boss appeared
    4) I was just an only child boy, now i became one of a four quadruplet sisters
    5) Kyuuketsu Hime wa Barairo no Yume o Miru
    6) When I Became a Girl, an Unexpected Love Quarrel Occurred!
    7) Even I Have Become a Beautiful Girl, but I Was Just Playing as a net-game addiction

    These are the few gender bender novels which i feel is pretty good/decent, though there might be a few out there that i missed.
