Is it gender bender month again? No.

Image

This shirt is trolling, err… Moblin-ing? Anyways, available for the next 22 or so hours, this shirt brings up the point that unlike Super Mario, Link is the protagonist from a series of games named after the princess he saves, as opposed to the main protagonist. That can get a little confusing.

Maybe one day, there will be a game named after Hilda Midna another princess, and Link will get the opportunity to stand in her shadow.

Zerophilia

This movie is all right. Better than Switch, but the premise of this 2005 comedy seems sort of similar to the manga Futaba-Kun change to a certain extent, and if you search around you can surely find a way to read that. Still, it’s worth watching, especially considering how few movies there are in the actual gender swap category that are.

Oh, also they had an awesome ad campaign where they stood outside of a window in front of Fox News with a picture of a nipple with the name of the movie on it. Can’t forget about that!

You can watch this movie on Hulu Plus, and I believe it is still on Netflix. Enjoy!

So I goofed

Sunday is sacred here on Netsenshi Productions. It is a day only meant for complaining about what is closed or closes early, as well as suggestions on what to do because of this worthless day existing. I broke that today, and I’m sorry. I posted relevant topics on an irrelevant day, and I hope we can get through this as a community. Here is some stuff to do?

Tgcomics’s forum is back up. If you are 18 and up, love gender bent shtuff, than might I suggest heading over there to intelligently discuss, in a respectfuly and calm manner, topics with people who have similar interests? NSFW, but did I need to emphasis that in italics? Yeah, I did.

gacha-gacha-secret-1059313That site also has tons of comics, but if you were looking for some manga to wet your whistle, than how about Gacha Gacha: The Next Revolution? It’s about a guy named Akira who ends up with the ability to transform into a girl when he sneezes. The girl he turns into was in charge of an in-game tutorial for a virtual reality game that had messed up while he was playing it. It similar to Ranma 1/2, but Akira uses his girl form to get close to the girl he likes… as opposed to… you know… eating ice cream and getting piggy back rides.

futaba-kun-change-book-1If that comic doesn’t do it for you, than how about Futaba-Kun Change? It’s another one of those manga that are constantly compared to Ranma 1/2, but like Gacha Gacha, Futaba-kun uses his new form to better his life. Futaba discovers that he and his entire family have the ability to change genders whenever they are excited. Okay, so don’t get excited, and it’s not a problem, right? Well, Futaba has a crush on a girl named Misaki, who harbors feelings for Futaba-kun as well. It’s prett wacky, and while it’s more mature and realistic than Ranma, it’s naughty enough to get a lot of people in trouble. Warning though, there is nudity, so yeah… awesome.

On a side note, how long will comics in the gender bender catagory have to exist before we have to keep comparing it to the only one most people know about? Ranma 1/2 is amazing, but so was Ford’s Model T. Maybe one day, people will say that ______ manga is like Futaba-Kun change, or Kashimashi, or Girl in My Dreams. Wait…. you’re not aware of the Korean comic Girl in My Dreams? Huh… >_> maybe you should get acquainted? I hear it’s like Kashimashi. See? I just made history there.

Bomber Girl

dbz38

Goku as a girl? And cute? We wish. I’m not sure if Bomber Girl Dragon Fight is just one doujinshi, or a series of them. I’m thinking the latter, as I’ve seen a few different plot lines. One of the plots involves a suddenly female Goku in an alternate universe where Planet Vegita never exploded. Thankfully, at least all of the pages in this short have appeared online, and have been fan translated.

04

The comic mainly involves Raditz and Bardock wanting to get it on with the newly femmed Kakarotto. Sparks are also possibly flying between the young Prince Vegita, who invites her to spar with him.

I once thought that the other story that I found of Bomber Girl was two different/incomplete stories. Goku and Gohan are girls, but Goku is still married to Chi Chi… so it’s a recent change I take it.

Goku then spars with Piccolo on the look out. Some awesome fighting stuff happens, and Goku ends up giving Piccolo a peck on the cheek. Ultimately, Goku wakes up a man again, and discovers that apparently everyone else had changed genders, including Chi Chi. Gohan, still a girl. Piccolo? Not present, but Namekians are asexual, so… doubtful he got boobs?

Anyways, I wonder if I’ve found all of Bomber Girl that there is. I know it’s not translated, but hopefully one day they will be. If you Google Dragon Ball Z and Bomber girl, the three story chunks should quickly pop up. Anyways, enjoy!

James’ Sweater Monsters

tumblr_lzbc3uGUN61qjkqvao4_250

James and Jessie

Team Rocket’s James has always been a little bit fabulous. He and his female partner in crime Jessie often tend to come up with elaborate disguises, many of which include James dressed up as a woman. While there is nothing wrong with it, as Jessie also dresses as a man most of the time he is crossdressing, there was one occurrence that has gained infamy on the internet. James in a bikini.

JamesinflatablebreastsThe scene comes from the once banned Pocket Monster episode: Holiday at Acapulco. In this episode, Kojiro, James’ Japanese equivalent, enters a swimsuit contest. His beard, Musashi, is there as well, if only for moral support. The fact that Kojiro was in a woman suit wasn’t the main problem. The problem is that when Kasumi (Misty) asks something like “But you’re a boy, aren’t you Kojiro?,”  Kojiro ended up over inflating his breasts and said that that didn’t matter with a body like his. Kasumi was horrified, the swimsuit judges loved ‘her,’ but ultimately the main protagonists mom won. That’s right, not the underage girls who were given body issues by a cross dresser, not Kojiro, not Musashi… but the single mother won. When this episode eventually did come to america, all scenes of James prancing around with his air bags was cut out. I guess the North American censors were afraid that children’s first crush would be a man in drag?

ashleyketchumEventually James’ behavior calmed down for the most part, as in the modern anime he does not seem to try and traumatize 14 year old girls on purpose anymore. There was one hilarious moment in the early anime though that is almost as famous, and that is Ashley Ketchum on the left. Ash was unfortunately a victim of ‘put a bow on it’ when they femmed him up. I guess that way he doesn’t look like a short version of Ken Masters from Street Fighter? Seriously… dem eyebrows. Girl needs to pluck.

All joking aside though, Team Rocket probably shouldn’t be allowed around other children.

Suh Suh Suh SUNDAY!

It is cold, and windy. That is what I have to put up with this morning, as I get ready for work. Might I suggest to everyone who did not get a good night of sleep for such mediocrity to bundle up and drink hot cocoa?

What to watch? Anime. Derr

ImageRanma 1/2 – in keeping with the month’s theme of Gender Bending, maybe this classic anime show about a high school kid who falls into the spring of drowned girl is up your alley? Cold water turns him into a girl, water back into a man, and hilarity shall ensue. If you want to skip the anime, there were a few movies, and even a live action one a few years ago. It is streaming at Viz and Hulu, subtitled. OH@ and this has martial arts and uh… fireballs! I promise! Me personally, I’m going to watch the movie on DVD, Nihao my Concubine!

ImageCheeky Angel – This anime is great, but has never been brought over stateside. a boy makes a wish from a Djinn in order to be a man among men, but the wish is interpreted as woman among women. Silly Djinn. Anyways, so fast forward to high school, where she has to fend off the boys who wish to date her as her best friend tags along for the ride! Good fun, but once again… only the manga is in North America.

If only there was some way to watch shows that are not in brought over her, but as far as I know… there can’t be, right?

ImageKampfer – This series is on Hulu. I’ve never personally watched it, but it’s about a boy who one day becomes a mystical female fighter who has to fight other mystical female fighters, all while being in high school. I’m sure hilarity ensues, but I’ve never seen it… yet.

ImageKashimashi – Watch this one subbed. The English voice acting made this show weird to watch. A feminine boy gets rejected by a girl who has problems seeing guys, and ends up getting hit by a UFO. The UFO reconstructs him, but as a girl, and hilarity… ensues. Okay. So apparently every time this kind of thing happens, hilarity ensues. Warning, this series isn’t hentai but it does feature tiny young lesbians. Might get some raised eyebrows at work. Just saying.

ImageAnd there are tons more to watch, and since it’s anime… you can probably read it too! Oh, and there was an SNES RPG of Ranma 1/2. So you can even play it as well in that case? But you know, it’d be in Japanese… unless somehow there is a magical way to play games on your computer from far off lands, with a translation. But once again… no idea of anyway to emulate that. Yep. Err… Nope.

The History of TG on the internet – TGFA.org

ImageWhen I was a lad on the internet, I found that it could be used for many great things. From newsgroups to online roleplaying to short stories to pictures of women with attractive bodies to men with the bodies of attractive women to… wait, where was I? One of the largest resources for information back then was TGFA.org Now, the Transgender Graphics and Fiction Archive was founded in 1999 by the webmistress Jenny North. The site itself is well… not exactly suitable for work.

Image

Why is she here? Why indeed.

This is the site where I learned many many things, and it saddens me every day that it hasn’t updated since May of 2002! While this makes the information a bit dated, it is still quite useful.

Mantra, Loki, Ressurection Man, Babewatch, Shade, Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, Darkstalkers, wait… what is fictionmania? ANYWAYS… This site is the rabbit hole, and you’ve got to see how far it goes!

Did you know that Sasquatch of Alpha Flight died and later  possessed a dead female teammate’s body? Or that Gambit’s made his shape shifting best friend become his girl Friday for like… ever? Or that Loki’s been a woman long before he possessed the body intended for Lady Sif? See. there is some good old comic geekery on this site as well!

Image

Thor’s bro is cute

While this site has been up long since it’s last update, I fear one day the knowledge might be lost. It honestly makes me sad to think about. For some, the thought of a man turning into a woman seems dirty, and wrong. For others, however, the idea of exploring the world with a new set of eyes, in someone else’s shoes, wearing someone else’s clothes, just… intrigues them.

Image

That’s no woman, it’s a Mantra baby yeah!

This site really opens people up to many different forms of media that explores this. If you are honestly interested in this genre, and aren’t in it because “Tee Hee, Zelda’s Link would look hot with boobs!,” than you owe it to yourself to stop by this gem from yesteryear while you can.

Cisgendered

femalegametchadjective

  • denoting or relating to a person whose self-identity conforms with the gender that corresponds to their biological sex.

This term, created in the 1990’s to differentiate people from not being transgendered, is a hard concept to grasp. I felt really awkward when I first heard that Penny Arcade’s artist, Mike Krahulik, was described as a cismale back in June on his twitter. Why? Because I sort of agreed with him to a certain degree.

When one is an adult, they often feel like they have a grasp of who they are. In Gabe’s (that’s Mike’s alter ego) defense… if my name was Mike, and I didn’t know that that meant that my name was actually Michael… I’d probably tell you to go fuck yourself because MY NAME IS MIKE, OKAY?

Remember that time, my assumed, for some odd reason, white brethren, when you were a child, and you discovered that you were Caucasian? After making fun of the word cock and Asian together for 10 minutes the rest of the day, you realized that you had never considered there a reason to specify yourself as anything other than who you were. Oh, and then you never had to actually use the word other than on a form.

And then you accept it… like I sort of did when I found out that I was part hispanic. You are all like “I guess it’s true… not that it matters. I mean, when will this knowledge actually make a difference in my life?”

To put this in another way, Titanic. Remember how in the movie Titanic there were tons of rich people? You had the old rich, let’s call them cisgendered, and then you had the new rich, let’s call them transgendered. Now it was so stupid to the viewer how there needed to be a distinction between the two classes that should be the same because oh my god money?! Well I can’t help but feel that there might be a slim chance that in one hundred years, this whole typing and labeling each other will feel… just… silly. After all, in the future, you will just be able to take a pill and be whatever you want to be, right?

To sum up my feelings, people hate it when ‘scientific’ terms are applied to them, right? If I kept calling you a trans woman as opposed to a woman, wouldn’t that get upsetting? To some this whole ordeal might seem like a step back, but eh… I guess it’s all textbook now? Who can argue with a textbook? Ridiculous people.

Let’s Play: Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme part 1

I got to play an alpha build of a brand new visual novel that deals with, in case you’ve missed my several posts on this issue, gender change. In this alpha build, I got to take the character of Yael, a university student, and see how he handles his situation while I chose key moments of the experience! Enjoy!

If you wish to purchase this game from Transcendent Games, you can click this link for more information: http://www.desura.com/games/gender-bender-dna-twister-extreme

Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme

I have three intersting things to mention about this upcoming game.  First off, there is gameplay footage up of Yael’s route. The below video doesn’t show anything too mischievous, but I would like to remind readers that the final product will contain sexual content.

Secondly, there are now screenshots at the following website: http://www.indiedb.com/games/gender-bender-dna-twister-extreme/

I handpicked some of my favorite images, so here’s a taste:

ImageImageImageImage

The third and last thing, is that I’ve been contacted by Lachlan Snell, the co-writer/programmer of GBDNATE, about a review copy! Expect a future update about this game, with possibly a first look/review of it! Until then, take a look at the interview I did with Lachlan last month: http://netsenshi.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/gender-bender-dna-twister-extreme-interview-with-lachlan-snell/
