Guy or Girl?

Whenever I'm watching an anime or reading a manga the thing that aggravates me the most is the fact that I can't figure out if a character is a guy or a girl. I usually mistake guys for girls though. Then I happen to open to a page where these characters are making out and I'm thinking...ummmmm what's going on here?! I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem, I mean a ton of anime shows out there tend to have at least one of these characters, right? So when has this happened to you??

Example:

Just about every character in Ouran High.

^The above was Typed mostly to annoy Yaoi fangirls^

But for real, I mostly see these characters when I see anime art and they rarely appear in a legit series for me.... probably cuz theyre more common in all those Borderline-yaoi shows.

Tail of the Moon vol. 14. But, I did skip volumes 1 through 11 and volume 13, so I guess it was partially my fault. But he looks like a girl!!(the blonde one. the brunette is a girl.)

Larsa from Final Fantasy XII

Larsa is a boy, believe it or not.

Even when I re-play through the game (Like I'm doing now) I always forget weather he's a guy or a girl until he talks. XD

Sorry I don't have a new unmentioned androgynous character... But here is an interesting article on WHY androgyny is so popular in otaku culture

And yet despite this gender ambiguity, all the girls simply go gah-gah over them.

But why is that? Why do females otaku find pleasure in one androgynous character finding love in another? To answer that question, let’s first take a quick look at the history of girls’ comics.

Definitely worth reading

That happened to me on two occasions. The first time was when I caught Rurouni Kenshin on Toonami and thought Kenshin was a girl until he started talking. I was like 0_0!!

The second time was when my friends were watching Ouran High School Host Club and I just happened to pass by and mention that Haruhi was a cute guy. They all looked at me and said she was a chick and I just said, "Dammit, I did it again!"

I understand for Haruhi because it's meant to be that way, but I can't believe I messed up on Kenshin! Anime can be so deceiving!!

Marluxia from Kingdom Hearts! If he did not have that deep voice, I would totally think he is a girl!

I thought Tart from Tokyo Mew Mew was a girl until about 4 volumes later. Pigtails + booty shorts + belly shirt = little boy? -headdesk-

Haku. DEFINITELY Haku. They even talk about how much she/he looks like a girl! alt text

It's a trap!

Personally, I believe that Haku is in fact a girl, so Haku/Zabuza pairings are not yaoi. That's fangirl logic for ya!
