TRAs absolutely ruined Danganronpa for me.

Really? I’d say the actual games themselves are pretty transphobic. Everyone uses male pronouns for Chihiro once they discover his true sex.

This one is so accurate, it couldn't get made in the US.

Another accurate portrayal of a TIM in anime is Magne from My Hero Academia.

The creator had gotten shit for “making the transwomen a caricature” but that’s only because “she’s” not the frilly and flowy kind of “transgirl” that most of the anime TIMs are in love with. Magne is a hulking man with brutish strength and a dull wardrobe.

The best part about this character is their insistence on being called “ Big Sis Magne” ( as the IRL TIM wants everyone to call him by feminine titles too ) and the fact that even his superpower relies on the affected target’s sex is also hilariously accurate… Magne is all about the “gender feels” even down to his superpower.

Haha one of these is that Chihiro boy that pretended to be a girl so people would stop bullying him for being a short and frail boy while the other one is the lad that was obssessed with his own sister and started pretending to be her huh? Good riddance! XD : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzrXonEnES0

Yes, for the uninitiated: These are both male characters in the series that try to dress up as women— one because he feels he is a failed male, one because he has an incestuous obsession with his sister (he is also revealed to be a serial killer of women and murders a female character who canonically loves women).

I know plenty of AGPs try to come across as the Chihiro uwu poor defenseless me type, when really with all their harassing of lesbians and violent threats, they have more in common with Korekiyo.
