Sion probably did something stupid like trying to sacrifice himself or something...
that's about the only reason why Nezumi would cry...but I'm just guessing.

It took them that long to finally explained wether Inukashi's a girl or a guy, but based on Sion's expression she's probably a girl.

Seriously, until I saw all the discussion about Inukashi's gender, I didn't even realize it was in question. I always thought she was a girl.
And omg... the preview for the next episode. What's going to happen?!? ><'

Oh my friggin' God, I'm assuming that the next episode will be about


...But as everyone already said, the highlights of this episode were Inukashi's tears (SO TOUCHING, MAN, I MEAN I FELT REALLY DISGUSTED AS WELL FOR HER/HIM ;_;) and Nezumi's protectiveness over Shion. Oh God, stop making me love you even more, you beast... :"D

WHY ISN'T NEXT WEEK YET? D: D:
If I die and I find that I had a soul inside,
Promise me you'll take it up to its final ride...

Yeah, dogkeeper continues to confuse me about his/her gender, it makes no sense to me. It sounded like they were dressing 'him' up like a girl to trap that guy (literally), and then Shion seemed surprised, maybe at the fact that s/he's a girl after all? So confusing O_o

Very Nazi-like moment with the people getting rounded up and shipped to the concentration ... I mean correctional facilities. Next ep they'll be reunited with Safu I suppose, and we'll see if they injected her with the Queen Bee or what ...

XD just discovered something accidently xP
In the preview, there's a scene with the baby that Shion rescued, and if you pause that scene, you can see there are boobs next to its head (like breast-feeding position) and the skin tone looks like Inukashi's XD
But I guess it does make sense though, cuz if Inukashi was open that she was a girl then I guess she wouoldnt have been taken seriously and she's the type to seem strong so she could protect those close to her (her dogs?) :3


Nice catch, and you're right, IT IS Inukashi.

Shes a girl!

First of WTF did I watched???? throwing people in dark pit like garbage??? That just make me sick, and that one hell of scary ending it remind me of the Holocaust. Damn cliffhanger D:<

-Inukashi crying and getting touched just rip my heart part ;___;
Yeah I'm pretty sure Inukashi is girl, she just want every one to see her as boy. But i glad Shion was there to comfort her.

-I just love how Nezumi protected Shion with his coat.

- Yoming has lost it. I guess he lost his chance with Karan anyways.

-Wow wait did Elusyas possessed Safu body? O_o

--Nezumi singing really something. He knows what's going to happen to the people i guess that main ( beside comfort them) reason why sang the song.

PREVIEW: OH god Nezumi crying and calling out Shion's name. T^T

It's to bad people who dropped the show are missing something good. -_-

Now as you mention it... I remembered certain scene from The Pianist, where a young girl was playing violin at the train station before everyone was taken to the concentration camp. But IIRC it happened becuse the soldiers made her play and after that


As fo the episode. The best so far. Emotion with action - that's what this series supposed to be :) Oh, next week will be heartbreaking with (Spoilers, real spoilers)
But if they really try to put those three scenes (mentioned above) in the next episode it will be one hell on tear jerker. Can't wait for that.

wow that was quite a lot to take in, glad to see shion's still brave enough to save the baby despite the chaos that surrounded him at the time
clearly yoming's messed up >_> i wonder if/how shion's gonna meet with karan based on that message, id think itd be quite tough
more nezumi karaoke lulz
im guessing safu is somehow related to the forest people otherwise why in the world would Elyurias appear to her like that, wonder what she did to those two peops though
next epi looks quite promising and its the pre-final episode, i hope they dont screw anything up after this far =I

I can't believe there are only two episodes left =-(

I really loved Nezumi's song, but the way the music progressed into like... a rock ballad kinda killed it for me. Unnecessary traps set in beautiful song is unnecessary.

Waiting for next week's episode is slow torture!

Dogkeeper (Inukashi) is a girl, Sion had always referred to her as a guy and when he touched her shoulders he was surprised and commented "you're a..." before being cut off. Not trying to sound snarky, but anyone who has actually felt the skin of someone of the opposite sex, knows women have softer skin then men.

May be the director should have been more clear considering the audience.
Now that's sounding snarky

Well I think the scene was putted that way on purpose, Nazis also tried to create a perfect world... and treating people like nothing is a reocurring trope in many dystopian novels/movies

Oh god, that yelling out Sion's name (in the preview) - why would that happen?? I hope no one important dies too.

Plus that scene with the Dogkeeper- I thought she was a girl, until they referred to her as "he" a few episodes back. So I've though he was a guy even now, but then Sion feels his/her shoulders... she's a girl?

I can honestly only conclude that he's just more comfortable with touching a man's bare shoulders rather than a cute girl's~

Because, I'm going to believe that Dogkeeper is a female and that is that 8I

NOOOOOOOO D:

Then that scenes makes no sense to me :/
I took it that we were to perceive Dogkeeper as a guy
Then be all WTFFFs when Dogkeeper is molested
And reacts so frightened and makes you think girl~
Like Dogkeeper has issues with putting up a 'guy' front
To feel stronger and forget maybe a bad past experience as a girl...
And with Shion being confused and all.
Because he is obviously not too god with girls xD;;;;

I'm calling it. Dogkeeper is a girl! Everyone was thrown off by the shoulders, but I'm betting Shion pressed against her chest and felt the breasts during that moment.

Awesome episode btw. Am I the only one that got a "jews being escorted to a concentration camp" feel when they were in the back of the truck and Nezumi was singing? Then they dumped them into the chutes as if they were trash. This is getting deep. Wish there were more than two episodes left :(

People may call me a stupid fangirl for keeping this rated as a 10 but what I absolutely love about this series is Asuno's complete and utter disregard for gender and sex-role stereotyping that is so prevalent in most anime. Something about this episode sent a chill down my spine that I do not usually get from watching anime.

I really can't wait for next week's episode.

What? Are you SURE? I've heard some people say that Inukashi gives off female vibes in the novel, and the novel never really speaks about/confirms the gender.
Regardless, I suppose this is going to be like Crona from soul eater where we can think whatever we think because they never confirm the real gender.

Well, in novel Inukashi was always called "boy" , "he". When he/she first appeared even shion was wondering is it a guy or a girl.

When I watched the anime I had no doubt that it's a girl, I was 100% sure of <her> gender. But then the novel has really tangled my mind... I do believe that keeping inukashi's gender as a secret is like a goal and all misunderstandings like this http://i51.tinypic.com/soxowm.png are telling us that it's a guy HOWEVER others like Inukashi's voice is saying the opposite....

About that "Inukashi's boobies bumped into shion" theory... If she/he is a girl then she's a flat chested one, so nope this time :D

After all -> does the gender really matters? I like to see Inukashi as the interesting person, not as a girl or a boy.

DDDDDDDDDDD: proof? from what i understand it's also ambiguous in the novels. people just assume his/her gender but it's never actually confirmed.

ffff i want it to be next week already, next ep's gonna be the most exciting yet~ also i hope that the anime doesn't cop out and has shion


man only two eps left and they've got like three novels to compress, still. :/

Lawls, I knew the dog watcher was a boy. I was one of the only few who actually saw it. And in that poll forum somebody created that voted for which sex he was, there was like 70% who thought he was a she. Its as funny as ever.

What a cliffhanger. I'm a little disappointed that they ended up sticking all the action back in the last few episodes. I feel like the show could've been a lot better if those middle episodes were a lot less filler-like.

And I always that that Inukashi was a girl, and I thought that this episode only strengthened this theory. But it seems like not everyone's in agreement with this. o _o

Shion talking about summer. <3 And yes! What about Shion's reaction when he is touching Inukashi shoulders?! Oh, man... For the rest, finally a little action there, but explications? Of course not, let's just die waiting for the next one (wich seems great!). It was a good episode, better than episode 8, but I still think that 20 minutes are so short to explain everything. Anyway, I can't wait for episode 10 after that cliffhanger (and the sneak peek too!), so I will just hibernate until there. ( ̄(エ) ̄)

So you're saying we were all (including Shion) supposed to think that Inukashi was a girl. But it turns out they're really a boy? Is that right? I'm really confused. o_o I always thought it was a girl. I never once thought they were a boy but now I don't know what to think, haha. Judging from Inukashi's reaction it seems more like a girl though...

Anyways, the end of this episode was pretty scary. I'm not sure I want to know what's going to happen to them. I'd like to know how this series is going to finish with just 2 episodes left though. Maybe there'll be a season 2?

This episode really confirmed it for me. Inukashi = GIRL!

The way she cried after being touched by that scum, the way Sion reacted after touching her shoulders: "You're a..." (GIRL!) Come on guys, she be female!

I think that Rikiga believes she's a guy, which is why he said what he said that whole "A young girl doesn't look that much like a boy" at the beginning of the ep. And I think that's what Sion thought too, up until the whole hugging/shoulder-touching moment.

Also, gah cliffhanger. With this AND Mawaru Penguindrum's ending, I am dying for next Thurs.

Oh come on, at the very beginning of the ep I was like 'whhhuuut so Inukashi IS a guy', but then when she was QQing in Sion's arms from being harassed, Sion was all 'You are a...' he's OBVIOUSLY going to say GIRL, I mean really what else would he say in that situation?
Yes, I bet Sion can tell if someone is female or male from touching their shoulders because he's cool like that.

I totally think Inukashi is a girl, and that she pretends to be a guy so she wouldn't be harassed and that's the reason for her freaking out so much from getting licked. YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH? But this ep didn't confirm shit about her/his gender.

And of course, the whole gender thing doesn't REALLY matter, but there isn't any harm in talking about it.

I'm thinking more along these lines too. The main reason why it confuses me is that it never occurred to me that Inukashi could be anything but a girl. I know gender isn't always totally easy to tell in anime but to me Inukashi looks, sounds and acts female so I don't understand how you could think it was a boy to start with. What happened in this episode has just really thrown me off because if Inukashi is a girl pretending to be a boy then I don't think she's doing a very good job. Although Sion was obviously tricked. XD

Also, the way Inukashi was holding the blanket around him/herself seems to indicate that s/he's a girl too.

In anime Inukashi is thought to be a girl....
In novel Inukashi thought to be a guy....

so it's kinda confusing, but I still believe on my first impression <that it's her> .

Here's a quote from the novel:

Was he a boy? A girl?
Sion couldn't make the distinction. The stranger's pointed chin and round eyes reminded him of a small rodent. He was very small and thin, and reached only up to about Sion's shoulders in height.
"He lives here," Nezumi said. "I don't know his real name. We just call him Inukashi."


About that towel... Whatever Inukashi is , it (I will call Dogload "it" now XD) had to cover itself with towel because Inukashi was acting a girl for sale. Inukashi has also put on a blonde wig!


I'm still reading the novel so if I'll find any more clues I will report here :D Damn you Inukashi!

Well, obviously she is fairly flat chested, but she is always wearing loose shirts, so you can't tell. They don't have to be very big for you to feel the difference between a male and a female. Not very big at all.

Oh I'm so smart -geek face- I've googled it! And guess what

http://no6.wikia.com/wiki/Inukashi

Race Human
Gender Female
Height 145cm


It's strange how Inukashi can be called a guy from anime (not from novel). I mean, long hair, female voice...
In novel Inukashi's look is way much boyish than in anime.

I've been wanting to read the novels but haven't yet because I decided to wait until after I finish the anime.
You'd think that if her gender was supposed to be ambiguous that they would've made her look a little more boyish. Ah well.
