Sexuality was also brought up, with @GINSYAMU commenting that he doesn’t know what type of person he’s attracted to since he’s never fallen in love before.

Androgyny rose to popularity in Japanese pop culture during the ’70s, but has been around since medieval times. And who can forget “traps” in anime?
Traps tend to be male characters that look and act feminine. These characters get a lot of attention within the community for challenging social norms (and for being the cutest ever).
Yep, @GINSYAMU is a real-life bishounen.
