Just curious to see what the majority of other people think, twice CR has subbed dogkeeper as "he", once in ep 4 and once in ep 6.

When I first saw it I assumed girl, but looking again at its mannerisms/looks it could easily be either, I'm leaning boy at the moment. As far as I know the novels are ambiguous also.

Girl, cause I had that feeling she was a girl throughout the novel xD

Something I wrote in the other thread:

Attention: novel spoiler

I think Inukashi is a girl...she just looks like a girl to me. I like to think of her as a tomboy maybe. :)

EDIT: Yeah, I just remembered the subs I'm watching did refer to her as 'he'...I think it was just a mistake honestly. xD

I always thought that she's a girl, but I'm not sure anymore. There seems to be something masculine about her...

I thought she was just a tough chick. Not every girl goes "uguuu" and "gaoo" every ten seconds.

In the anime she is drawn with female features... particularly slender limbs and costuming which would be odd if a male were to have her history. I have always considered her a (female) tomboy character. I know that female voice actors often voice male characters, but usually only younger ones.... so if she turns out to be a he for some reason then it's at least a deliberate trap.

Most of the features used by the animators are androgynous -- for example both genders have pronounced collar bones, similar eye shape and underlashes, and other facial features... at least with the protagonists, but they likely made the male protagonists more feminine purposefully.

Having my doubts too. In Episode 6 there's a moment where Shion refers to Dogkeeper as 'He'
Yet of course, it could've just been an error in the subs.

EDIT: Also, anybody knows Envy, from FMA? His voice was female's, his clothing wasn't exactly... 'manly'... yet, the character was male.

I feel that dogkeeper being a girl, just feels right to me.
True, I was blindsided by Envy, and Chrona fucks with my head still.

But the subs don't prove anything, it's only the CR subs that've done that right, other languages have gone for a female pronoun, and I guess the Japanese has none.

I want dogkeeper to be a girl though.

first, i saw the Dogkeeper as a girl, because of the feminine face and slender body.. but i don't like the Dogkeeper's attitute and character, too harsh and boyish...

so, when the issue gender starts to come out, i thought, eh? emm... maybe she is a he, plus the flat chest.. so, i think i would like him to be he.. :D

Well I hope Dogkeeper is a girl. Looks like one...just a bit tomboy-ish.

He's obviously a guy... he talks saying ''ore''.. masculine version of ''I''.
Nobody noticed that?? I could tell from the first time he started to talk...

That's not really proof of anything though, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Bokukko

A lot of girls in anime use words meant for boys, including "Ore".

No they don't. Ore unlike boku is a male only personal pronoun and it's not commonly used in anime at all.

I always thought the Dog Keeper was a girl but in the last episode she was referred to as a he.

as the replies goes it seems to be that the people who o think he is a mal and female are about half half. but the poll results say differently. lawls just look at his chest.
