Onimai Causes Trans Representation Complaints

Recently premiered the anime Onimai, the anime tells the story of Mahiro Oyama, an otaku boy who lives reclusively in his room without leaving home for 2 long years.

One day he wakes up with his body transformed into a high school girl, this is the result of an experiment his younger scientist sister did on him, turning him into a little girl.
