Wandering Son (放浪息子, Hōrō Musuko) is a manga series written and illustrated by Takako Shimura. It began serialization in the December 2002 issue of the monthly seinen manga magazine Comic Beam. The first tankōbon volume was released by Enterbrain in July 2003 in Japan; as of December 2010, 11 volumes have been released. The series is licensed in English by Fantagraphics Books, which is scheduled to release the first volume in North America in May 2011. A 12-episode anime adaptation produced by AIC Classic and directed by Ei Aoki aired in Japan between January and March 2011.

PlotEdit

The story depicts a young boy named Shūichi Nitori who wants to be a girl, and his friend Yoshino Takatsuki, a girl who wants to be a boy. The series deals with issues such as transsexuality, gender identity, and the beginning of puberty. Shimura was originally going to write the story about a girl in high school who wants to be a boy, but she realized that a boy who wants to become a girl before entering into puberty would have a lot of worries related to growing up, and changed the story to fit this model.
