Outside of traditionally same-sex genres, how common are LGBT+ characters in anime and manga and how are they portrayed? Lesbian and gay characters are often found in "first love" situations, but older couples are almost unheard-of. Transgender characters often fall into "comic relief" roles, but there are exceptions. What lessons can we learn from examing good and bad examples of representation? How have trends shifted as audiences have evolved?
