Asatte no Houkou has a swap between a young girl of about ten and a woman in her early twenties. Turns out they're linked in another way.

Isn't that the textbook definition of body swapping? Two characters find themselves in the other's body?

Well, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Ranma 1/2 and Kasimasi Girl Meets Girl might be what you're looking for based on the Kampfer avvy. Hopefully, the gender bender thing to the extreme is what you mean by body swapping. A boy finds themselves as a girl sort of swapping.

Hmm, that seems more like age-swapping than body-swapping.

Can't think of an entire anime based on that premise. Though there are individual
anime episodes such as:

Fairy Tail, Ep. 19

Galaxy Angel Z, Ep. 11

Galaxy Express, Ep. 14

Girl's Bravo, Season 2, Ep. 1

Natsu no Arashi!, Ep. 8

Persona, Trinity Soul, Ep. 19

Save me! Lollipop, Ep. 8

Shakugan no Shana S (OAV) ("Reshuffle")

Urusei Yatsura, Season 2, Ep. 3

Would Birdy The Mighty: Decode count? I'm watching it right now and I really like it.

None of you are talking about actual body swapping. What he is referring to is something like Freaky Friday. Whereby one person finds themselves in the body of another person.

I don't think I know of any Anime based on that premise (though I think there may be individual episodes as AnimeFan188 says)

You might have better luck with Manga.

That's exactly the premise of Asatte no Houkou, which the OP rejected for reasons only he knows. He seems to think it's a show where the characters become older versions of themselves (he cites Big for comparison), but it really is a show where the two female characters, one aged ten and one in her twenties, swap bodies.

Le Chevalier D'Eon might work.
Not exactly body swapping the way you want but still. The main hero (guy) occasionally transforms into his sister, she posseses his body.

As I said not eneternely what you want but close.

Actually, it's an age-swap, rather than a body-swap:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_...After_Tomorrow

Though it has an effect similar to a body-swap, since each must deal with their
new place in the social pecking order.

Yep, Kaiba:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...me.php?id=9178

definitely has lots of body-swapping (or is it body-hopping?). Of all the shows mentioned
so far, it's probably the closest to what the OP was asking for.

Note that Kaiba doesn't follow the usual "2 chars switch bodies, then learn what each
other's life is like, then switch back, having learned a valuable life-lesson" formula.

That's part of what makes it different (that, and the art style).

Kokoro Connect Is a body swapping anime -Its more like Soul Swapping.-
Same results though.

Sorry for reviving a old thread.

Since this thread's making a comeback, I guess I'll add:


Revolutionary Girl Utena, Episode 8 -> Female/Female Body-swap.

Natsuiro Kiseki, Episode 4 -> Female/Female Body-swap.

A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives (Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi) OAD (aka Ep. 13) -> Male/Female and Female/Female Body-swaps.

Rinne no Lagrange Season 2 Episode 5 -> Female/Female Body-swap.

Haiyoru! Nyaruko-san (aka Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos), Ep. 9-10 -> Male/Female Body-swap.

Sket Dance, Ep. 62-64 -> Male/Female Body-swap.

Dog Days Season 2, Ep. 11 -> Male/Female Body-swap.


In fact, there's a "Freaky Friday Flip" section in the Tropes website:

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...eakyFridayFlip

With lots of relevant info.

Hope that helps.

Murder Princess is most definitely a body switching anime.
