he's gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!(but should we be calling him a 'he',and can he be considered a tranvestite???no disrespect intended)but 'he' is one HOT he/she *drools over keyboard*

:-) Rachel L. Baade replies: "His robe thingie isn't a gender-specific outfit, and since he doesn't have a gender, so I would say no."

I've always wondered... is this Ashura a younger version/other world version of the Ashura in Tsubasa: Resevoir Chronicle? The one Fai D. Flowright sealed within a coffin and hoped that he would sleep for eternity? He looks so cute and non-evil here. I want to huggle him! But would I be betraying my beloved Fai-chan? Oooooh decisions. Decisions!

He's so CUTE!!! If I were to deside whitch gender for him/her/it I would definantly (however you spell that) choose male just so I could glomp him.

If he is neither male or female, he would be called an it. So he probably has genital organs, but anyways calling it a he doesn't make sense.

:-) Rachel L. Baade replies: "No. Please forget what political correctness taught you an pick up a dictionary. 'He' can mean specifically a male, or it can mean anyone (without reference to sex). 'It' all too often has the connotation of something unhuman or even inanimate, so I prefer using 'he'."
