Hiya, everyone! I’m here with another poll! Today we’re doing the Best Anime Traps poll!! This time, I’m going to be adding a brief character description as well, because most people are not familiar with all the characters in the poll.

What are Anime Traps?

If you’re an absolute newbie to anime and have no idea what anime traps are, there here’s a simple explanation for ya guys:

Anime traps are males dressing and acting like females. Basically, cross-dressers. The opposite, that is, females dressing like males, are called reverse traps.

Poll Rules
