Trans-Sweetie (spoilers)

If you are familiar with the manga Backstreet Boys or the cartoon series inspired by it, Goku Dolls, then you know the plot of the live action movie Trans-Sweetie. Three tough guys are forced to get sex-changes and become a girl group pop band.

I don’t know of an English translation, but the action is easy to follow nonetheless. We see the boy’s (mostly) shocked expressions as they see their new selves for the first time, watch them trying to den their new genders (the struggle to pee standing up is very amusing). We watched as they are dressed up in girly costumes and forced to compete on a TV show (they fail) and are then subjected to a grueling diet and training program including dance and gymnastics, of course wearing cute outfits (one wears a top that reads Barbie). And, we see them come to terms with their new lives, finding a kind of middle-ground between their past identities and new genders.

It’s a fun watch in any language. Check it out.
