When most LGBT anime movies and series attempt to have homosexual/bisexual main characters, this movie differentiates itself with a transgender drag queen. Transgender men and women are not usually potrayed with solemnity on cinematic projects. In contrast, their roles are mostly to entertain and bring laughter. However, Tokyo Godfathers is a touching story of three homeless people finding parents for an abandoned baby. These include a middle-aged alcoholic man, a transgender woman and a young girl who escaped her home. It was awarded many times and exported to America and other countries.

This series is a standout for telling the story of two trans fifth graders. They are best friends to each other and share the same story: their biological genders are not what they consider themselves to be. As a result, they find it difficult for almost everything: facing judgment from family and outsiders, making friends and even growing. It is a horribly touching story especially for trans people who realized at a very young age.
