After reading Magnolia and Divine Melody I've become interested in looking for a manga with a genderless main character, a person who dosent particularly identify or ascribe to one sex. Would basically prefer it if the character stays genderless, but that might be basically asking for to much, so one where they aren't male or female for the bulk of the story is fine. Divine Melody provides an interesting example where the main character is both male and female, and spends the bulk of the plot switching between the two. Magnolia is an example where the character is born genderless, although she has to choose one eventually. So, yeah, something like those two would be great. I'm not really looking for male-to-female or female-to-male transformations (e.g. my barbaric girlfriend or [/m]return[m]), but something more where, at least for the bulk of the plot, the main character is neither gender (or, at least, they don't stay as one particular gender for very long, Divine Melody being a good example).

Fantasy and romance would be great as well, but not necessary for what I'm looking for. Could be a more realistic story instead (e.g. Intersexuality). THanks in advance for any suggestions.

Houkago Hokenshitsu and I.S. are two manga I know based on intersexuality. Though I haven't read either of them so I cannot say if they are any good. But I'm a fan of mizushiro setona sensei so I'm expecting houkago hokenshitsu to be good. Hope this helps. smile

Does that mean Ranma 1/2 and Itsuka Sora kara is a no no?

After School Nightmare might suit your needs, but it's more like the main character fluctuates between genders as opposed to being genderless. It has both romance and fantasy.

The only one that I can think of off the top of my head is Clamp's Wish (though certain scanlators ascribe certain genders to Kohaku, Kohaku is technically genderless and sexless). Clamp's RG Veda also has a genderless/sexless main character, though there's not much romance in that one.

Ame Nochi Hare (BIKKE) has characters that (literally) switch between male and female.

And A, A' and Shounen Hakaryuudo both have intersex characters, though gender-wise they are referred to with male pronouns. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but just putting it out there.

Edit: Just remembered, Lonesome Eden has a sexless main character too. SiH (the scanlator) even used a gender-neutral pronoun for said character.

Tenbin wa Hana to Asobu A manga about a vampire that doesn't have a gender and will either become a man or woman depending on how much female or male blood consumed by the age of 18.

This is closest thing I could come up with, it's a cute simple romance manga. The character identifies as female for convenience, but doesn't consider herself one or the other. It has some shoujo-ai leanings because of this, but if that doesn't bother you I recommend checking it out.

Been a while since I read it but I think Global Garden might work for you.
