Hello everyone! Today’s post is about feminine anime boys! I’m going to list some of the best and cutest anime femboys I’ve ever seen!
You might have come across the term “traps” in the anime community. This term is used interchangeably with the word “femboy”. However, recently there’s been a lot of fuss surrounding the word “trap,” as some people consider this an insult. So, we’ll try not to use the word trap much in this article.
Who Are Femboys In Anime?
As you might already know, femboys are girlish-looking boys who like cute things and wear girlish attire. Especially in anime, where most of the voice actors are female, there’s no way to tell them apart from other girls unless explicitly mentioned by the characters themselves.
Given their very untraditional nature, they have become pretty popular in the anime and manga communities. While there are still a few people who hate them, more and more people are coming to accept their existence and have learned to love them.
Before introducing these popular anime characters, I would like to say to those who like them: you guys are insightful. Nowadays, more and more anime fans will make their favorite anime characters into realistic peripheral items, such as anime custom die-cut stickers, custom metal pins, etc. If you also favor these feminine anime boys very much, why don’t you find the fan group to order a batch of exquisite femboy peripherals?
So without any further ado, I present to you my top 15 favorite anime boys who look feminine!

15. Honjo Kamatari, the Hilarious Crossdresser (Rurouni Kenshin)
Honjo is one of the most unique femboy characters in anime. He is not feminine at all, as far as his character goes. However, he loves to wear female clothing and mess with other men.
However, he also doesn’t like when people don’t believe that he is a boy. This is evident in a scene where he literally shows his family jewels to prove his gender.
Despite being a villain, he made the show more interesting and fun.
14. Ritsu Sohma, the Most Innocent Femboy (Fruit Basket)
Ritsu is a very timid and fragile boy who is always afraid of everything. This is why he keeps apologizing after any and all interactions.
In order to overcome his anxiety, he wears female clothing. According to him, wearing the clothes of the opposite sex calms him down.
What’s amazing about him is that he is not crossdressing as a girl to gain attention. He is doing it just to feel safe and calm.
As the series progresses, we see him gain confidence over time, and he eventually goes back to wearing men’s clothing.
13. Aoi Hyoudou, the Internet Idol (Kaichou wa maid sama!)
Aoi is a boy who was ahead of his time in many ways. He was one of the first boys to crossdress and act as a girl on the internet. It is not just because he wants to be popular; it is also because he loves cute things.
One other thing he can never get enough of is attention. He absolutely loves it when other men drool over him.
He was very popular as an internet idol because he was pretending to be a girl, and everyone was buying it. However, he was exposed later.
12. Kuranosuke Koibuchi, the Fashionista (Princess Jellyfish)
Kuranosuke is the main character of Princess Jellyfish. This is one of the very few instances where an anime has a femboy main character.
In this anime, we get to see Kuranosuke dress up as a girl and make the audience fall in love with him.
His excellent makeup skills and choice of dress make him a genius at fashion. However, he comes from a political family, and they do not approve of his behavior.
Kuranosuke, on the other hand, couldn’t care less about politics as he is in love with fashion.
11. Tsukimiya Ringo, the Femboy Sensei (Uta No Prince-sama)
Tsukimiya Ringo is an adorable teacher from the Uta no Prince anime who is also a femboy. At first glance, all you will be able to see is a gorgeous girl with a cute face.
Not many can guess that all that beauty belongs to a man. What makes him more attractive is his joyful personality. Ringo is kind, friendly, and an individual with positive energy around him.
He usually dresses himself in girlish attire because that’s what he prefers.
10. Hime Arikawa, the Kawaii Crossdresser (Himegoto)
Hime Arikawa is a feminine-looking boy who got himself into trouble because his parents owed him a lot of money. Thankfully, the student council took care of the debts, but he had to become their servant and cross-dress while at school as a result.
Even though he started cross-dressing because he had no choice but to, he grew to like being a girl and began to enjoy it.
9. Gasper, the Adorable Femboy (High School DXD)
Gasper Vladi is a half-vampire who can stop time. He enjoys wearing female clothing because he thinks it is cute.
He had a cowardly personality at first, but as the series progressed, he learned to be self-confident and courageous.
8. Chihiro, the Genius With Insecurities (Danganronpa)
Chihiro is the ultimate programmer, who became a trap because he was bullied as a child for being so weak for a boy. To avoid their criticism and bullying, he decided to disguise himself as a girl. However, this only added to his fear of being bullied again if people discovered his true gender.
7. Haku, the Selfless Ninja (Naruto)
Haku is one of the earliest introduced characters in Naruto. It is even mentioned in the manga that he is so beautiful that everyone mistakes him for a girl. While he doesn’t actively try to act like a girl, his appearance can really be deceptive.
His personality is probably the most normal of all the anime femboys mentioned in this list. And his backstory is something that will break one’s heart.
6. Ruka, the Most Precious Femboy Character (Steins;Gate)
Ruka is not only the most feminine of all the other anime femboys on this list; he is also the only one who has become an actual girl in the anime (yes, mess up timelines, and even this is possible).
He is one of the side characters from the popular time travel anime Steins;gate. Unlike most other characters on this list, he doesn’t have a really cheerful personality. As a matter of fact, he is always fragile, shy, and very conservative. This isn’t necessarily bad because it only makes one want to protect him and make him happy.
5. Totsuka Saika, the Secret Crush of the MC (Oregairu)
Sakia is, in my opinion, the most wholesome femboy there is. He is kind, warm, and really a good person through and through. He is the very definition of purity.
Saika is one of the side characters from Oregairu. The MC of this anime clearly likes Saika but only holds himself back because he is a guy. However, this doesn’t stop the MC’s heart from skipping a beat whenever he talks to Saika.
And the way Saika gets flustered when Hikigaya (the MC of Oregairu) teases him is absolutely adorable.
4. Hideri, the Playful Femboy (Blend S)
Hideri is a cheerful little boy who wants to become an idol. Of course, given that most of the idols are girls, he has decided to become one himself. Other than his love for cute things, his personality is more that of a boy.
He can easily make dirty jokes and deal with insects like nothing, which is not very feminine, but that’s exactly what makes him special.
3. Felix, the Cutest Catboy (Re:Zero)
Felix gets bonus points for combining two different fetishes together. He is not only a femboy; he is also a catboy! Not to mention, his adding ‘nya’ to his sentences is super cute.
He is a side character from Re:Zero who is extremely loyal to his master. Felix is very overprotective of his master and would do anything for her.
2. Nagisa, the Adorable Assassin (Assassination Classroom)
Although Nagisa’s personality isn’t all that girl-like (normally), when he crossdresses, he becomes extremely flustered and becomes more feminine. The way he carries himself when he is dressed as a girl is too cute to not include him on this list.
However, there is a bit of a dark background as to why he looks like a girl. His mother was obsessed with having a girl child, but when Nagisa turned out to be a boy, his mother forced him to look like a girl. He was forced to grow out his hair, even though he didn’t desire it.
1. Astolfo, the King of All Femboys (Fate)
Astolfo is one of the side characters in the Fate series. He is most likely the most popular girlish looking boy ever! As a matter of fact, it isn’t even an exaggeration to say that the current anime femboy community is based around him. He has a really cheerful personality and is adorable in many ways.
