me, I am a new member but could not resist commenting on the scythe-queer in rurouni Kenshin (not meaning scythe-queer in a mean way, they literally call him that in the context of the show) which is funny cause he says how due to Komogata Yumi he can never be Shishio's ideal woman, which I find hilarious cause I think much as Shishio may be close to Yumi, there is also the fact of him being a man

I think the term for this character is bishounen there is this Shun from Saint seiya for example (he doesn,t look exactly like a girl but he acts like if he were gay) and Kurapika from HunterXHunter (I,ve heard a lot of times that some people think that he,s a girl and in one scene he disguise like a women (using the excuse that he,s going to distract the enemy and the disguise is to make Kurapika harder to recognize later).
the real reason to why Kenshin used the crosed scar was because without it he would apear as a girl

I know this is supposed to be a humorous thread, but I'm going to be deep and insightful. I've thought alot about the Haku/Zabuza relationship. I think Haku is just a deeply traumatized, unstable young boy. Remember, he's MAYBE Naruto's age, so he's still young (about 15) and almost all his life, he's had no real role model except a deadly assassin/wanted criminal/murderous madman. So he threw himself into pleasing the one person that has ever paid any attention to him. I'd guess he dresses and tries to look effeminate to not only throw off his foes (most men don't want to hit a young girl) and to please Zabuza. It made it easier for them to spend so much time together if Zabuza felt like it wasn't a sausage-fest. Not that they did anything, but I mean, they probably didn't get to chill with chicks too often. And finally, don't forget that many translations and mannerisms in Japanese culture don't translate well into English (especially American) culture.
Remember when Gai-sensei said "Because he's the subordinate that I love."? Well, there's not a thread questioning if they have butt sex because they hug eachother and say they love eachother. It's just the way they express their pride and appreciation for eachother, nothing more.

Besides, it's just a cartoon.


To this day, I'm going to continue that Haku is a girl and that any evidence showing otherwise is mistranslation or a figment of my imagination.

^ You can never tell in that series lol, hilarious though.
At first glance of Haku i thought it was a she rather than a he, cause he was too pretty to be a he lol, and the way he was dressed and the nailpolish.
