Anime traps. Well, many of you don’t even know about this word. Let’s just start the day with a question. What is an anime trap? The answer is, the anime trap is something that doesn’t look the way it should be. In simple terms, suppose you are a handsome man who wants someone to date. So after being active on many dating apps and websites, finally you got succeded in finding one. You become good friends on social media, exchanged Instagram id’s and planning to meet in real. You are dreaming of a rich life with her. Your children are running here and there in your dreams. Suddenly, you came to know, the account you are chatting with is not a valid account and is being run by your neighbor’s uncle kid. Your dreams just shattered on the ground. Your kids suddenly disappear. Isn’t it a trap?
The same thing happens in anime. We will discuss this in detail, and we will also discuss why creators do this? Is there any logical reason behind this? This can be seen in 70 percent of the anime series. Whether it be like Naruto, One Piece, or Hunter x Hunter. Well, sometimes, the creator makes the personality of a character in a unisexual way, so it can be portrayed as a male or female depending on the director or the voice artist. The best example of this is Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter. He looks like a girl when the character got introduced in the anime. Well, without wasting any time, let’s just jump into the topic.
