14+ Anime Where The MC Looks Like A GIRL (Must Watch!)

In some anime, it is difficult to tell the gender of certain characters, maybe due to their dressing or even their hairstyles. Sometimes, other characters in the anime share our confusion, mistaking the boy for a girl. In some cases, the male main character gets pissed, other times they just decide to go with the flow.

The character’s resemblance to a girl can be so strong, that the creator of the series might need to announce the gender reveal himself. In other cases, the identity will be revealed in a series of dialogue in the anime.

If you love this kind of anime, or you are developing an interest in anime where the main character is a boy who looks like a girl, then this is the right place for you. Before we begin, a little question for you – will you like to be a boy that looks like a girl?

Please understand that this list is completely subjective, and this is just my version of the Anime Where The MC Looks Like A Girl, so let’s jump right into it!
