Anime’s Next Top Model C3 Epi4 – Genderbenderism

Time to test the final Five!

Are you having fun, readers? We sure are in gathering the contestants in different situations and challenges. You can call us sadists or just plain mean but this is the cutthroat business of modeling and you gotta win some and lose some. We are finally with the final five, so are you ready to see them in a new… um… light? :3
Looks like Mami and Barnaby might be breathing a sigh of relief for being voted off last week, because they’re free from having to go through the slightly racy GENDERBENT episode. As Kyokai said, such a thing cannot be helped when you’re a model. If you wanna book a job, you have to do what your client says! Before we get down and dirty with some sex-swapping, let’s have our contestants compete in a challenge, shall we?




Imagine, if you will, the sketchiest of all malls: dim, flickering lights and store clerks that look like ex-convicts doing their community service. This is the mall that Kyokai, Zabobinator, and Overcooled have dragged the remaining contestants to for their next challenge. Because they’re nice people like that.

Overcooled reveals the envelope, but Kyokai is quick to grab it from her lest anything destructive happens to it yet again. She then reveals this week’s challenge in a clear voice.

“This week, you all have to run around the mall and put together an outfit in 10 minutes,” she explains, “and try to make it original, people! I don’t want to see some variation of what you’re already wearing. Make it a new look for you.” With that out of the way, Zabobinator presses go on her stopwatch, signaling start of the competition. All the models immediately start running, trampling the other shoppers in their wake.

The judges endure 10 loooong minutes of cringing and hoping for the best until all of the contestants manage to make it back to the starting point to have their outfits judged. First up, are the ladies of course.

Stocking is the first to step up, wearing a very impractical but sexy police woman outfit. Quite the change from her usual Lolita style.

“Ohh, very nice, but…where did you find the police officer stuff?” Zabobinator asks in awe. Stocking points proudly to a slutty costume store a few metres away. One of the store clerks (who is clearly, 100% a prostitute in her spare time), waggles her fingers coyly as the group looks over her sketchy outlet. Still, it’s impressive that Stocking could get an outfit from a store called “DAT ASS, DAT COSTUME” and work it.

Senjougahara is the next to step out, and seems to instantly outdo Stocking in her smart, functional businesswoman outfit. She even has some glasses to match, sure to make those megane-lovers drool. Kyokai nods in approval and Senjougahara turns around and struts away, revealing the “I <3 ARARAGI” endearingly embroidered on the butt of her pants in an outrageous shade of hot pink. There is a pause, while Kyokai clears her throat. And then –

“PASS,” the three judges say in unison.

As for Nino, it took the crew about an hour to find her. She hadn’t found an outfit, but she had managed to befriend every animal in the pet store. Security managed to pry her away from the fish tank so the competition could continue. Saeko turns up with a gawdy net-thing that’s looked down upon by the judges, while Sawako comes back with a cute one-piece.

The guys are worse than the girls by far, exemplified by Gintoki prancing out in front of the judges in full “gangsta” attire. It’s clear that he just walked into Nike, grabbed a bunch of clothes and a pair of shoes, and walked out. To top it off, he pulls out a basketball from behind his back and starts trying to pull off some fancy moves. Just as he tries to dash forward, he trips over his own baggy, low-riding pants and falls flat on his face. In slow motion. To “I Believe I Can Fly” playing in the background.

Date Maamune takes advantage of this, exclaiming “Ah-ha! Perfect!” in his flawless Engrish, robbing Gintoki of his bling. Apparently, this bling is the final touch on his ultimate outfit which consists of, but is not limited to, a Hawaiian shirt, tights, shorts, a beanie, a fanny pack, bras (multiple ones, worn like armour pads), and boots. It appears that it will take some time before he catches up on how the trends have changed from the Sengoku era…

Rin struts in with a rainbow of colours from unmatching shoes to three types of scarves wound around his neck, with gelled up hair and a enough bling to make chin-chin sound. While judges exasperatedly sigh, Natsume shows up in an overflowing robe and a fancy mask. Judges are pretty sure, it must be a gift from his invisible friends but now is not the time to recycle old looks.

By now all the judges are practically blinded by the horrible outfits, until a certain butler steps forwards. Confident and composed, he’s quick to explain how he put together his casual look of a scarf, jacket and shirt. It really does suit him. Loving fashion done RIGHT, Overcooled is quick to pipe up and ask where he got his clothes.

“Macy’s.” He says with a gleam in his eye, “A butler must hunt for bargains!” with a flash of light, he reveals 10 coupons in each hand, wielding them like he would his knives and forks.

“Let’s not forget haggling, too,” he adds with a wink, showing off his persuasion skills.

“Ah, demon skills certainly can be used for…” Overcooled pauses to think, “…a variety of things…”

The judges have a brief discussion about who should win, all nodding in agreement once they decide.

“This week,” Kyokai announces, “the winners are Sebastian and Stocking. You both did much better than the other contestants in showcasing a new look, so congratulations!”

There you have it! Sebby and Stocking have won over the judges for this week’s challenge. Now for the photoshoot. Queen (King?) of Traps, Ness, did an excellent job preparing this week’s shoot with a topic very close to her heart…crossdressing. I think most of these photos speak for themselves. Enjoy the shoot and don’t forget to VOTE for your favourite!

If you are thinking if some of the above contestants got surgeries done to acquire boobage and junk; worry not. It was just clever makeup and props supplied from Metanorn dungeons, where you can find almost everything if you just look for it. :3 Remember to vote as per the current theme of gender-bending.

    I voted Senjougahara & Date ! It was sort of tough between Senjougahara & Saeko. Sawako didn’t really try all that much huh LOL

  2. Joojoobees says:

    😀 Nino in the pet store.

  3. Snowley says:

    Stocing – hnng what a bishie! And she’s almost like a guy anyway.

    Natsume – he only needs a hair pin to look like a girl ;p

  4. BlackBriar says:

    I voted Senjougahara and Rin. Choosing between Senjougahara and Saeko was and still is pretty difficult to do. Though Stocking proves she can make choosing a bishoujo even harder. Saeko almost looks like Sebastian this time around.

    • Kyokai says:

      Ah yes, purple haired bishoujos giving you trouble? Let’s see how long they last. ^^

  5. Sabine says:

    Omg Sebastian NO XD *sigh* I voted for Saeko (so.. so so Gakupo like oh my gentlemen now when Sebby is a….. D8) and Gintoki, he´s the most Beautiful off them all ;O Such a smexy lady! (…xD)

    • Kyokai says:

      Hahaa, I laughed a lot while working on this episode. This shot was done by Ness and was hilarious for sure. And yeah, Saeko was more gentlemanly than Sebby here and some photoshop was done so she looks a bit like Gakupo. xD

      Gintoki sure got the hot quotient this time around. xD

  6. Overcooled says:

    Not gonna lie, I’m voting strategically for who I think will come closer to last to make sure they stay in the competition. People I know are safe, I’m not voting for.

    …I’m probably a bad example. Don’t listen to me. Vote for who is the sexiest! <_<

  7. Shey says:

    Since I have no favorites I can stay objective; I just vote for who I think did best. This week, I think Nino and Gintoki are the most convincing!

  8. Amutofan123 says:

    Oh my, Sejougahara is quite sexy as a guy~

  9. Samantha Zan says:

    DAAAAAAMMMMMNNN!!!! What a challenge! XD

    I think Stocking is the best gender bender out of the girls there! I think the guys have this competition overthrown!! I don’t which one to choose! :3

    • Kyokai says:

      It has to be challenging! xD

      And the pics this challenge were quite tough but we managed and I’m glad seeing the results.

  10. Namika says:

    I can not get enough of Sebastian. *drolls*
    There should be a law that makes all guys wear scarves.

    • Kyokai says:

      Hahahaa, he sure is looking smexy as a lady there. XD

      • Namika says:

        noooooooo~ that’s a crime to gender-bender Sebby xDDD
        and I actually thought that female Sebastian looked creepy *_*

  11. Kyokai says:

    If only I could put up support Sawako banner but I can’t add in favouritism. ><

  12. Alynn says:

    FFFFFF Senjougahara & Stocking. So hard to choose!
    Same dilemma with the guys D; Masamune & Gintoki. WHYYY

  13. Moni Chan says:

    the first picture of the genderbending of Haruki suzumiya (male name) brings back memories

    GINTOKI OMFG that is one awesome picture

    • Kyokai says:

      I’m really getting into the suzumiya series, just because of Kyon so this pic was definitely golden for a theme setting. xD

      And Gintoki sure looks hawt~ xD

  14. Hato-kun says:

    Daaaaaaaamn, Sawako.
