    Help with 系男子

    Spoiler show


    I am having trouble with 系男子.

    The male is the pet owner. The two with ears are his cat-human pets.

    雪の日も萌えに生きる系男子。

    I thought that 系男子 referred to the two cats so I thought the translation would be something like:
    "Boys living 'moe'lingly even on snowy days." (Don't know how to translate moe.)
    But, I found out that one of the cats is a girl in a later chapter.

    Is this some indiscrepancy in the manga or is the 系男子 the owner instead?
    If it is, what would the sentence mean?

    Thank you for your help.

    XXX系男子

    Examples of XXX: 肉食, 草食, 絶食

    系:type

    男子:man/men

    XXX describes what kind of guy he ( <--- the owner) is.

    Re: Help with 系男子

    Does this mean that 系男子 cannot be referring to the cats even if both of the cats were male?
    Could 系男子 have been referring to the cats if the context was different?

    Would the translation be something along these lines:
    A man living in moe even on snowy days.

    Thank you for your help

    The pet owner is the one who loves the cute moe-characters (=those 2 cats), so your translation sounds fine to me.
