Here's a list of characters and related tropes for the series ''Manga/WanderingSon''.


[[folder: Main Trio]]

!!Shuuichi Nitori
-->Voiced by: Kousuke Hatakeyama
* AttractiveBentGender: Due to the fact that she is a trans girl, it actually goes ''both'' ways:
** Since most of the society recognizes Shuuichi as a boy, she gets a lot of "Oh, Nitori is so pretty when he crossdresses!" in-universe, which make several boys crushing on her before learning that or despite knowing that she is physically a boy.
** She is also very attractive when presenting as a boy. When she went to her elementary school reunion dressed in mostly masculine clothes with a short haircut she got a lot of attention from the girls. One of the girls from her elementary class even had a crush on her.
* BettyAndVeronica: During the brief Shuuichi-Maho-Seya SiblingTriangle. Socially, Maho as Seya's classmate and a cis girl fits the Betty role, while Shuuichi as "the mysterious girl" later revealed to be Maho's trans little sister, places as Veronica. Personality-wise it's obviously the other way around.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Shuuichi never becomes violent, but when she finally stands up for herself, she gets to [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome tremendously]] [[BreakThemByTalking break verbally]] her former bully, Doi, almost making him cry. [[YamatoNadeshiko She's]] [[SilkHidingSteel actually incredibly tough, emotionally.]]
* {{Bokukko}}: Due to being raised as a boy, but she never changes her pronouns
* ChickMagnet: She attracts a lot of girls. Apparently even in her original elementary school she was this.
%%* TheCutie
* DelinquentHair: Right before high school began she dyed her hair bright red, and this was how others reacted. Alas it only lasted one chapter.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: Her hair was a lighter brown in elementary but darkened within a few volumes. The manga handwaves it by implying it's puberty related.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Shuuichi ''is'' a girl, but few people actually acknowledge this, so this trope is in a full effect in-universe, with the boys being perplexed about how they are attracted to the "girly-looking" Nitori-kun.
* ExpositoryHairStyleChange: Grew her hair out after hitting a depression then cut it even shorter than before due to the stigma of a boy having long hair.
* FashionModel: She briefly was a model in elementary but quit for unspecified reasons.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: She is shown in early chapters to like baking,
* {{Expy}}: In terms of design she's this to the protagonist of an earlier manga by the mangaka.
* FragileFlower: {{Lampshade|Hanging}}ed ([[LackOfEmpathy rather cruelly]]) by Maho:
-->'''Anna''': ...I made your little brother cry.\\
'''Maho''': Huh? Shu always cries.
* HeightAngst: Becomes dysphoric over her height once she begins hitting growth spurts.
* InSeriesNickname: "Nitorin".
* MeaningfulEcho: Throughout the story, whenever she talks or confesses about her transgenderism, she always says, "I want to be a girl." [[spoiler:But in the final line of the manga - the title of her book - she instead simply says, "I am a girl."]]
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler:After finally deciding to transition at the end of the manga, she asks Yuki to give her a feminine name. She calls her "Lily".]]
* OfficialCouple: With Anna.
* PassFail:
** The first time was when she got a haircut and it ended up looking more boyish than she expected because she was hitting puberty.
** In high school a few women talk behind her back about her because of her voice.
* SupremeChef: When it comes to baking at least. This was referenced often in elementary, but it stopped being brought up after a few volumes.
* {{Transgender}}: Specifically a trans woman.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: With Maho.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Sorta. She's a soft-spoken, docile child who's good at baking and is quite feminine. She says what she feels and has spoken up for her friends at times. In later chapters she's begun to break more out of this trope but still fits.

!!Yoshino Takatsuki
-->Voiced by: Creator/AsamiSeto
* AdaptationDyeJob: His eyes are black (stylized brown) in the manga but golden in the anime.
* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: [[spoiler:Most of the manga presents Takatsuki as a counterpart to trans girl Nitori and depicts them as a transgender boy. In high school, the line starts to blur and ultimately they come to the conclusion they would rather live as a girl, though they're still depicted as confused over their gender. Considering the situations surrounding the revelation and the bittersweet way it's presented, fans are stumped. WordOfGod is that it's up to the reader on whether they see them as trans or not.]]
* AttractiveBentGender: Similarly to Shuichi, though more complicated (see AmbiguousGenderIdentity). However it's safe to say that whoever Takatsuki identifies as, they are still going to look damn good when dressed as opposite gender.
* BerserkButton: Bullying Shuuichi. Also, his period and, to a lesser extent, other physical or social aspects of femininity coming from his biologically being female. Teasing him about it made some boys in his elementary school seriously beaten. He's generally only tough in situations he feels pressured in.
* DCupDistress: He hates it when his breasts begin to grow. He even goes to buy a binder to flatten his chest so that he does not have to wear a bra.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: His hair was brown in the first two volumes instead of black. His eyes were originally brown before turning black.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: He attracts a lot of guys, albeit ones that see him as a girl.
* FashionModel: In high school Takatsuki decides to become a model after others suggest it. [[spoiler:Originally he presented as an androgynous {{bifauxnen}} but later underwent a GirlinessUpgrade]].
* GirlinessUpgrade: [[spoiler:Takatsuki was treated as a transgender boy for most of the run and showed general dysphoria and a disdain for feminine things. Part way during high school, Takatsuki became a model but started androgynous. Eventually Takatsuki grows their hair out, begins wearing girl's clothes, decides not to transition and leans more toward GirlyGirl than {{Bifauxnen}} {{tomboy}}.]]
* HeightAngst: He's tall for a girl but wishes he was taller.
* HotForTeacher: He seems a bit confused about whether it was a crush or not. He felt pressured by everyone else to have a crush on somebody, but other people thought he fell for a teacher in middle school.
* KickTheDog: Telling Saori that her beloved Nitori-kun now dates Anna, and thus completely crushing the girl? Not cool, Takatsuki. He regrets it almost immediately, though
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted, and his BerserkButton.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Seems to be this with Shuuichi. [[spoiler:Subverted in the end. They've grown distant from Nitori and have a crush on her]].
* RealMenWearPink: If the colored art is to be believed Takatsuki has a thing for pastel colors. His hoodies are apparently ''pink''. Could be his parents buying the clothes though.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: No, Shuuichi really isn't his girlfriend. And Chiba isn't his girlfriend either.
* {{Transgender}}: Specifically a transgender man. [[spoiler:Eventually subverted. Maybe, WordofGod says it's up to readers to decide for themselves if Takatsuki is still trans or not.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood:
** By his own admission cheesecake is this.
** Takatsuki is shown drinking orange juice a lot.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Shuuichi. The legion of [[ShipperOnDeck Shippers On Deck]] doesn't help. And then the FoeYay tension with Chiba.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: At his first day in the high school to a girl named Kayoko Masuda. Well, about the fact of being physically female, anyway.

!!Chiba Saori
-->Voiced by: Creator/YukaNanri
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her eyes are black [[ArtEvolution past-elementary]] but the anime still has her with brown eyes.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She's always been distant from others and has very few friends.
* AmbiguousDisorder: She's emotionally unstable and awkward beyond the normal teenage level. She also has a tendency to overreact about little things.
* BrokenAce: Chiba is a talented, intelligent, beautiful girl who attracts most of the boys despite not caring for them, but she also is emotionally unstable, can't get along with majority of people, and can't win love of the person she desires.
* CannotTellAJoke: She only tries once in the manga but her "joke" didn't come off as one. It just created an awkward silence.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: A {{Justified|Trope}} case. In early volumes her personality was very different, but then, again - it ''is'' a story partially about how adolescence and circumstances in it can form child's character.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's quite sarcastic and snappy.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Though the series arguably shows ''both'' of the processes, frosting and defrosting, with the IceQueen period during her middle school years.
* DudeMagnet: Most of the named boys from her grade, as well as Fumiya, have a crush on her. He despises most of them and is indifferent to the rest, partly because [[{{Irony}} of how different they are from Nitori]].
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: Her character design was originally presented as younger looking but when her characterization changed she switched from TaremeEyes to TsurimeEyes and became more mature looking. Her eyes also were originally brown but later became a more stylized black.
* FriendlessBackground: She can't get along neither with girls (except for Sasa) nor boys. When [[LoveHurts love problems appear and cause a rift between her and her two transgender friends]], Saori ends pretty much alone, excluding her only cis girl friend and another trans girl. Some other people still keep trying to get close to her, but she isn't too willing to cooperate.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Or more like, The Friend That Doesn't Like (almost) Anybody Else, with some of the others finally losing patience for it.
* GirlishPigtails: Wore them in middle school, and oddly ''only'' while at school; she had her usual cut when in casual clothes.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Her eye style changed early on. Originally she had the more wide-eyed expression everyone else does, though she eventually permanently changed. She essentially went from TaremeEyes to TsurimeEyes.
* GreenEyedMonster: Toward Takatsuki.
* InSeriesNickname: At least Sasa calls her "Saorin".
* IncompatibleOrientation: Sort of, with Nitorin. She likes Nitorin and Nitorin likes girls, but Saori sees Nitorin as a boy, which certainly doesn't help their relationship.
* UsefulNotes/JapaneseChristian: She becomes a Christian early in the series because she feels the need to repent. She's shown going to church. She meets Fumiya there.
* {{Jerkass}}: Skirting a JerkassWoobie line, but she certainly doesn't hesitate to throw tantrums all around her.
** JerkassHasAPoint: More often than not.
* LoveHurts: Arguably the biggest victim of this. She even can't stay as close to Shuuichi as she gets to be to Takatsuki and poor girl seems to be slightly afraid of her extreme personality.
* MaybeEverAfter: Oddly enough, the series ends with her and [[spoiler:Doi]] on that note, with Fumiya treated a bit like a DisposableFiance.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: {{Averted}}.
* NoSocialSkills: Atypically, not PlayedForLaughs and not supposed to be cute.
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Fumiya]].
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Several characters have black hair and pale skin but Saori fits the archetype most.
* SingleTargetSexuality: For most of the manga she only has eyes for Nitorin.
%%* TheSnarkKnight
%%* StepfordSnarker
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: It's unclarified how much she likes it but Saori is repeatedly shown drinking green tea.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Acts this way towards Shuuichi occasionally. Oka can tell a tale on that subject.
* {{Yandere}}: She doesn't go AxCrazy or outright psycho over her unrequited love, but sometimes loses it, and is the most realistic example available.

[[folder: Peers]]
!!Makoto Ariga
-->Voiced by: Creator/YuichiIguchi
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her eyes went from brown to black
* {{Adorkable}}: Dear God, yes.
* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: Introduced as a {{foil}} to Nitori but never got the same amount of transgender-related focus as Nitori, most fans thought Mako was a CampGay WholesomeCrossdresser. In high school, it's shown otherwise [[spoiler:and she even comes out to her mom]]. The anime didn't seem to think she was female either as she's dressed as a boy in an ImagineSpot, while the manga parallel has her in a girls uniform.
* BigOlEyebrows: Not incredibly big but still larger than most of the other characters.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: Mako originally had OpaqueNerdGlasses however within a few chapters it was changed so that her eyes could be seen constantly.
* {{Foil}}: To Nitori, being much more self-anxious and nervous about presenting as a girl.
* GenderBlenderName: "Makoto" is a unisex name, which is lucky for her since she's trans.
* IAmNotPretty: Unlike Nitorin, whose physique makes somehow easier for her to present as a girl, Mako is very self-conscious about not getting this: "Oh, so cute!" reactions when she dresses as a girl.
* HopelessSuitor: To Oka and a couple of [[TeacherStudentRomance male teachers]].
* HotForTeacher: Incurable case.
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* NerdGlasses: Originally her eyes were hidden behind her glasses.
* OddFriendship: She gets along surprisingly well with Saori.
* SeriousBusiness: Hair clippers and dressing up as girls.
* TheSmartGirl: Perceptive and sometimes more self-confident than Shuuichi, she frequently supports and defends her from others' inadequate aggression, even cutting Maho's bullying of her sister and shutting her up once.
* SobriquetSexSwitch: Makoto requests for Nitori to refer to her as "Mako-chan" not soon after they begin being friends. She usually goes by "Mako".
* {{Transgender}}: Like Nitori, Makoto is a trans girl.
* YouthfulFreckles: She gets her freckles from her rather youthful mom.

!!Anna Suehiro
-->Voiced by: Creator/YuiHorie
* AdaptationDyeJob: Anna's eyes are brown in the manga, violet in the anime
* BiTheWay: Originally fell for Nitori as a boy but isn't against the idea of being seen as lesbian.
* CoolBigSis: To Shuuichi, initially; a much needed one when the biological sister was a BigSisterBully.
* {{Foil}}: To Maho. Maho is more out-going and appears approachable, but has a strong {{jerkass}} streak and cannot treat Shuuichi being transgender civilly. Anna is reserved and a lot of people thinks she looks scary and cold, but is kind to Shuuichi, becoming a CoolBigSis to her first and girlfriend later, and is even at ease with Shuuichi planning to transition.
* FashionModel: She's a popular model. She meets Mako and Nitori through the modeling agency, though she originally doesn't get along with them.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: For Shuichi in the last chapter, declaring that she's a lesbian since Shuichi is a girl.
* NightmareFetishist: Mild. She finds some unusual things to be cute.
* OfficialCouple: With Shuichi.
* ShrinkingViolet: Though you wouldn't guess at first glance.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She originally bullied Nitori and was mean towards Maho, but it turns out she's pretty nice on default.
* {{Tsundere}}: It seems like she was this with Nitori but it's just her SugarAndIcePersonality showing.
* TsurimeEyes: One of the few characters with such. She sometimes gets a "cat eyed" expression.

!!Shinpei Doi
-->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino
* BelligerentSexualTension: At various points of the story he was implied to be attracted to Chiba as much as he disliked her. [[spoiler:And he asks her out in the last chapter.]]
* TheBully: He began bullying Nitori in sixth grade.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: At the time of getting into high school (when he stops being TheBully and gets slightly picked on by upperclassmen).
* HiddenDepths: He turns out to have quite a comical talent and generally to be not so awful person, after he gains some respect for Nitori.
* {{Jerkass}}: Initially, though he gets some development, even becoming sort of friends with Shuuichi later.
* LikesOlderWomen: He felt attracted to Yuki to the point of forcing Nitori to let him visit her.
* MaybeEverAfter: Oddly enough, [[spoiler:hinted with Chiba in the last chapter, as we don't see her answer to his confession, and she reacts to it more emotionally than to any other signs of interest from the boys in the manga.]]
* TsurimeEyes

!!Riku Seya
-->Voiced by: Creator/YoshitsuguMatsuoka
* AdaptationDyeJob: His eyes went from brown to golden.
* AttractiveBentGender: He doesn't look so bad in a maid costume. Even the girls thought he looked cute.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Seya's history of becoming Maho's boyfriend wasn't very easy.
* BrutalHonesty: When Maho (rather rudely) ask him directly if he has a crush on her, he flatly responds that yes... but he's recently met a mysterious beauty whom he likes better.
* ChastityCouple: Maho blurts out in high school that they've never had sex despite dating for years.
* DemotedToExtra: Sometime after dating Maho he became regulated to just being "Mako's boyfriend".
* NiceGuy: Despite their, well, awkward encounters in the past, he cares for Shuuichi's emotional well-being and treats her far better than Shuuichi's own sister does.
* TsurimeEyes: To the point where they're often drawn almost like cat eyes
* UnderstandingBoyfriend: When you're dating a {{Jerkass}} BrattyTeenageDaughter with HairTriggerTemper, you don't have much of a choice.

!!Kanako Sasa
-->Voiced by: Creator/YoshinoNanjo
* DemotedToExtra: In high school. She only sparingly appears.
* TheDitz: Thinking too much makes her head itchy.
* ExpositoryHairStyleChange: She stopped wearing her signature pigtails in high school.
* GenkiGirl: Less so than Chizuru though.
* GirlishPigtails: Until high school.
* TheHeart: She just wishes for everyone to stay friends.
* InSeriesNickname: 'Sasa-chan' and 'Kanabun'.
* MoralityPet: To Saori.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: {{Averted}}, which shocks some of her friends.
* SailorFuku: Her high school uniform.
* ShooOutTheClowns: She starts appearing less and less when middle school comes around and the plot takes a more serious twist.

!!Chizuru Sarashina
-->Voiced by: Creator/SaekoChiba
* AbhorrentAdmirer: A platonic version. She would really, ''really'' like to be Chiba's friend. The feeling is not mutual.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her eyes have a golden hue in the anime. In the manga they're just brown.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: She can pass as a long haired boy when wearing a gakuran.
* DemotedToExtra: In high school. She only appears a few times.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She has an... odd way of thinking.
* {{Crossdresser}}: She seems to prefer female or androgynous styles in casual wear outside of school, but she doesn't think twice about dressing in her male middle school uniform. She even wore it on the first day of school.
* GenkiGirl: She's ''very'' spunky.
* GirlishPigtails: Wore them occasionally in middle school. In high school it was her default style, which contrasts with Kanako and Saori, who stopped wearing theirs at the same time.
* LargeHam: Often coupled with her ThirdPersonPerson
* NoIndoorVoice: She has a tendency to speak loud for no reason.
* SailorFuku: Her high school uniform.
* ShooOutTheClowns: She coincidentally gets sent to a far-off high school with Kanako and Momoko right when the high school chapters begin.
* ThirdPersonPerson: She occasionally speaks like this.
* TsurimeEyes: A pronounced example.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: She likes to wear the male school uniform in middle school.

!!Momoko Shirai
-->Voiced by: Creator/AkiToyosaki
* AmbiguouslyGay[=/=]AmbiguouslyBi: She doesn't seem to really like boys, she just cares about Chi. One character mentions that she might like Oka, however.
* ClingyJealousGirl: To Chizuru.
* DemotedToExtra: Appears sparingly after gradating middle school.
* FlatCharacter: There's not much to her besides her friendship with Chizuru and her clingingly personality.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: She has one with Chizuru.
* SailorFuku: Her high school uniform.
* SatelliteCharacter: She revolves around Chizuru.

!!Fumiya Ninomiya
-->Voiced by: Creator/KaoruMizuhara
* AscendedExtra: For a while in high school.
* CreepyCrossdresser: Not really creepy, but his reasons for crossdressing are rather petty.
* DemotedToExtra: He was Nitori and Mako's upperclassman in high school but eventually took a backburner to Doi. Not even [[spoiler:dating Saori]] helped him get more spotlight.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Chiba. He can be bit cocky and a liar though, so the "nice" part is somewhat debatable.
* ExpositoryHairStyleChange: He grew his hair out after Saori [[spoiler:started dating him]].
* UsefulNotes/JapaneseChristian: He meets Saori at church. He is apparently less into it than Saori, however. He ''smokes'' at church.
* {{Megane}}: He wears glasses.
* NoSmoking: His smoking isn't in the anime because underage smoking isn't allowed in anime.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: He smokes, and when he was first shown doing this he couldn't have been older then twelve.

!!Oka Takanori
-->Voiced by: Creator/MutsumiTamura
* TheBully: He was this to Nitori since elementary but eventually became friends with Mako in late middle school.
* HopelessSuitor: He has a very hopeless crush on Saori, who despises him.
* ObliviousToLove: Makoto likes him but he can't tell.


[[folder: Family]]

!!Maho Nitori
-->Voiced by: Creator/NanaMizuki
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: To Seya.
* AscendedFangirl: When she makes it to the same model agency where Maiko-chan works.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: With Shuuichi and Seya, occasionally.
* BettyAndVeronica: During the brief Shuuichi-Maho-Seya SiblingTriangle. Socially, Maho as Seya's classmate and a cis girl fits the Betty role, while Shuuichi as "the mysterious girl" later revealed to be Maho's trans little sister, places as Veronica. Personality-wise it's obviously the other way around.
* BigSisterBully: She spends much of her screentime bullying her sister.
* BigSisterInstinct: She abuses Shuuichi constantly, but [[HypocriticalHeartwarming NOBODY (else) MESSES WITH HER "BROTHER"]]!
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: She starts out as a preteen but otherwise fits.
* {{Fangirl}}: THE fangirl of Maiko.
* FashionModel: She was such a huge fan of Maiko tha she got into modeling to meet her. She originally only got in due to Nitori but eventually became a worthwhile model in her own right.
* HairTriggerTemper: She gets mad very easily. She gets worse as time goes on, but by high school she begins to cool down.
* HotForTeacher: In her first year of middle school she fell for an off-screen teacher; however, it matches the description of the teacher both Mako and [[spoiler:Takatsuki]] seemed to like.
* {{Jerkass}}: Aside of {{Transgender}} problems and the lack of understanding from her environment, having this sister alone would gain Shuuichi status of TheWoobie.
* KickTheDog: About 90% of her treatment of Shuuichi. Though slightly justified in cases when her transitioning complicates her life, or when she tries her underwear on...
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted. First {{Foreshadow|ing}}ed in Chapter 7, and it finally arrives in Chapter 30.
* OfficialCouple: With Seya (after some complications [[LoveTriangle involving]] younger sister).
* PetTheDog: Anytime she's nice to Shuuichi.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Shuuichi and Anna.
* {{Tsundere}}: Acts this way towards her boyfriend Seiya prior to dating. She also acts like this towards Shuuichi.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: With Shuuichi. She even lampshades it, saying after the audition that they could've said that're twins.
* WhatTheHellHero: Makoto gives Maho one of these, when witnessing her mistreatment of Shuuichi. Interestingly, having to deal with an assertive and self-confident girl so different from her sister, Maho cannot really tell her off.

!!Nitori Satomi
-->Voiced by: Creator/SayakaOhara
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga her eyes are black but they're a dark shade of blue in the anime.
* AscendedExtra: She's a bit character for most of the series but gets spotlight in the high school chapters.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: In early chapters her hair was brown but it was eventually changed to black.
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* ParentsAsPeople: She wants to understand Shuuichi's gender issues but it's stressful for her.
