Manga: Family Compo

Ordinary college student Masahiko goes to live with his aunt and uncle, Yukari and Sora Wakanae. While excited about meeting his relatives for the first time, he is surprised to discover that his lovely aunt Yukari is actually a man, and his handsome uncle Sora is really a woman. Their plucky daughter, Shion, is revealed to be... whichever gender she feels like (Though for the time being she's sticking with female).

However, given Masahiko's current fate: living alone in a fetid apartment that he can't afford and with no family to return to: he decides to stay anyways. Eventually, Masahiko's desire for a real home coincide with with the Wakanaes' surprising generosity to anyone who is willing to accept their family at face value, and he quickly becomes Happily Adopted into the household.

By the mangaka Tsukasa Hojo, Family Compo is a Slice of Life manga that, perhaps, is a more realistic than average depiction of transsexuality, and at the same time has a remarkably positive tone with tremendous emotional poignancy.
