    Yashamaru is Gaara's mother's twin brother, right? When I saw the anime, I had this feeling Yashamaru was a gal, but -maru is the classic boy name suffix.

    Damn that Kishimoto and his girly guy characters.

    It seems Yashamaru had a severe case of Haku disease. Same with Sakon.

    At least Sakon had a masculine voice in the anime :p

    Yeppers. Yashamaru is a guy. I thought he was a cool character. He was so nice to Gaara... too bad it was all fake. T_T The episode of Gaara's flashback with Yashamaru was probably my favorite.

    Sakon doesn't really look all that much like a girl, in my opinion. It's just that he wears lipstick. Otherwise, he looks too crack-whorish to be a female in an anime.

    What the monkeys! I thought Yashamaru was a female with a deep voice. God...that explains a lot of things. :laugh

    They are the founding leaders of the effeminate males community...

    Maybe there should be a Fan Club of them, or something.
    And I first thought Yashamaru was a masculine girl, rather than a feminine guy...

    If you compare Naruto's amount of Bishounen to any shoujo manga's you will see that Naruto falls short, very short (although Naruto is the shounen manga with most bishounen I've seen).

    I think it's his way of getting girls to watch the show........I Think....

    anyway Yashamaru didn't look like a girl until he told Gaara how to heal the "pain in his heart"... That close up when he said "love"

    Bishounen literally means "beautiful boy". Bishounen characters can often pass for females (hence Haku, Yashamaru etc.). There was a thread in the Konoha TV section on the subject of bishies:

    Discussion thread

    Hope that helps :)

    Sakon has an excuse for looking like a girl, he's obviously gay! Isn't that what Tayuya always says?

    Instead, I understood Yaashamaru was a male since I read the manga...I mean, if he was a female he would have gone all "kawaii!!!" around the baby Gaara, and really love him. ;)

    No, Naruto has no bishounen, compared with GetBackers. Only 4 of the over 15-people cast is female, and the rest of the 11 are all HOT o_o <33

    I have yet to see anyone in naruto or any other series that beats Kazuki in the "omgwtfhotbishieomgomg" department. Except maybe Rosiel from Angel Sanctuary >>

    It never even crossed my mind that Sakon was a girl. Haku is a strange one though.

    Somehow, I keep having this conversation inside my head.

    Haku's Mum: "Oh my god. Zabuza. What. The. Hell. Have. You. Done. To. My. Son."

    Zabuza: "Well, m'am you see..."

    Haku's Mum: "I don't need you to tell me what I see! How..how are you gonna account for this tragedy?

    Zabuza and Haku: "..."

    Is Zabuza in love with Haku because he acts like a girl? In comparison between Haku's and Yashamaru's problem, Haku's psychological problem seems to be more grave because he sounded as if he is in love with Zabuza, Yashamaru...well maybe is to avenge for his sister.

    I think both characters are awesome - Especially Haku. My friend insists it's a girl =_=

    But i think Haku is an awesome character. Really original - and thats important, especially in naruto where a lot of the characters are pretty much your mould characters.

    I quote the part about Haku...he is such a complex character and his relationship with Zabuza is very particular; they could seem father and son, but also lovers. :eek::
    Instead, I really can't suffer Yashamaru...he was so cruel and false with Gaara! :mad

    About the gender in anime characters, I think male and female aren't so different each other, even in the real live we have many shades of appearences and behaviours...don't see the world in black and white, it's boring! :wink

    Agreed. There are feminine guys and masculine girls, not to forget that long ago in the chinese kingdom there are eunuchs... :smile-big

    I'm happy that someone understand what I mean! :smile-big

    Returninc in-topic...do you know that in the Italian pubblication of Naruto they traslated Yashamaru as he was a female? Only after many books they apologised for the mistake... :notrust

    Haku is Zabuza's own play doll thing. Zabuza's a sicko.
