    Confused Hoshino Katsura's gender

    actually this started with my discussion with ultibankai in the chapter 166 discussion thread which is not supposed to be discussed there

    so i create this new thread so that others can also share their thoughts and discuss this matter along with other D.Gray-man readers and fans

And if I am correct with knowing of all Noah abilities, there has been none with the "Memories" theme or background or whatever it is, like Tyki's pleasure or creepy girl Road's dream ability. So when the 14th is fully awakened then Allen's inevitable hybridization(totally random word) will be complete, lol.

To further complicate this mystery, Viz refers to Katsura as a male when mentioning her.

    Hoshino is known to have an older twin sister, who visits her often, and a younger brother who "gave her a watch as a present" (apparently she took it from him even though he protested). In order to please her sister, she used to draw manga every day, and she liked drawing herself. But even though Hoshino is assumed to be female, she often uses "boku" (male way of referring to self, also used by tomboys) and "jibun" (a more polite and humble way to refer to oneself, used both by males and females) to refer to herself, making much more confusion about the mystery of her true gender, especially when using "jibun", as it is harder to tell whether she is male or female.

    source: mangaupdates

    but if you look at the manga volume cover, from the pictures in the author note column i guess that hoshino katsura is a "she" hehe

Even after that pretty obvious confirmation of him being male. HOSHINO KATSURA is male. End of that. Cant wait for the next chapter as what Cross says next has me stoked.
    For even more accurate proof go to Viz's site directly for the info: http://www.vizmedia.com/products/pro...ction=profiles
    although vizmedia refer to hoshino katsura as a "he", we never know if Viz has actually seen/met Hoshino Katsura. well at least i don't think they have to personally meet the mangaka to publish their work. Viz can just deal with the producing company in Japan
    Viz may assume hoshino katsura as a male since D.Gray-Man is a shounen manga and usually shounen manga are drawn by male mangaka artist ^^

    anyway my deduction that hoshino katsura is a female is just based on the pics in the author notes column of the cover of volume 3, 13 and 15

    you can see the volume covers in this thread or for better pics please see here

    Re: Hoshino Katsura's gender

    I heard someone say somewhere that in the Fanbook, in the interview with Hoshino and Mr. Y, that Hoshino says something like "because I'm a woman...". Don't know if it's true though...I'll look through it and see if I can find it though.

    Re: DGM Hang Out Thread

    Found it! She definitely says "私が女だから..." on page 200. That does mean "Because I'm a woman..." I'm fairly sure. Not sure about the rest of the sentence...so if anyone better at japanese wants to check it out, it's in Hoshino's first paragraph on page 200.

    So we can finally settle once and for all. HOSHINO IS FEMALE.

    Re: DGM Hang Out Thread

    "What Viz says" doesn't count anyway - Hoshino was hiding her gender, so why would Viz come out and say that she's female when it's a secret to most Japanese fans? English doesn't allow for the vagueness that Japanese does.

    But yes, Hoshino says it flat out in the fanbook. (IIRC, it was someone's criticism about why most of her characters were originally female or something like that. It's a really, really long interview. Damn, that woman can talk.)

    there's just too many hint that proves it
    but Viz just had to complicate this matter

    I had my suspicisions when Wikipedia brought it up. XD And then I thought about it and concluded it did sound more like a woman wrote it than a man. It's hard to describe...but Miranda's data page in volume 3 totally gave it away!

    Re: DGM Hang Out Thread

    Yup, Hoshino is 100%-ly a female. I have seen some photos of her in the German anime-manga magazine "Animania" 8just the back of her but it's definitely a female since the Animania-people call her "female" and they had an interview with her). Plus, she will visit a German anime-manga-convention called "Animagic" in a month or so. Expect some photos from this event.

    Well, I didn't buy the magazine but maybe I can either take photos of the page with the interview or buy it when I go to the book store next week. I can't promise though.

    If it was really her on the photo and I believe so, then she has short black hair and lots of stuff around her wrists like a watch and bracelets.
