I have seen a lot of loose gender roles in anime; and not just recently either, it has a history. The characters are interesting and fun, and in my opinion only enhance the story. They also represent one of the more light-hearted sides of this series, which can be fairly serious at times.

Not all transvestites are transsexuals, and not all people who are homosexual want to be the opposite sex. sexuality=/=gender identification. and dressing as the opposite gender does not mean one wants to physically become one.

I think inclusion of the diversity of human population without judgment towards "good" or "evil" in making the character is a good thing.

Anyone else find it a bit ironic that a transsexual is the one telling Kuniko how she should act, both in the sense of normalcy (which there is no more of after the quake) and as a woman. Both of these things seem almost satirical.

I think it adds humor and a bit of flavor to the "motherly" role... The fact that it is so ironic adds to it. Gives you moments of comic relief with out using the favored "clown" of a character. But yes EXTREMELY ironic that the transsexual is trying to teach Kuniko about what it really means to be a woman.
