Anime Trap and Reverse Trap
When a male character dresses up and acts as a female character, it is known as an Anime Trap. Similarly if a female character is dressed up as a male character and is behaving like one as well, it is known as Reverse Trap. In this, the male characters show more feminine qualities and females are projected as more masculine.
Trap characters not only dress up as opposite characters, but behave like one as well. Physically as well as emotionally. These characters inject the show or story with a lot of upcoming surprises, twists and turns.
According to Google, the first Amine trap was 1973’s Ara Waga Tono, and the first reverse trap was from Tezuka’s 1953 manga, Ribbon no Kishi.
