That's why I hate Tumblr when it comes to characters like Chihiro, Naoto, Kanji & Grell argh....if a character is trans, let him/her be trans. I dont get why is there a need for war over it.
Exactly, anon. Exactly. Like, why do you need to be rude and attack people? Generalize that no one will accept it? I’m sorry, but this is just too… childish, IMO. If you’re happy for the character being trans, wow great, ok! But I don’t see why is there such a big need to start a war over it, saying things like “CIS PEOPLE WON’T ADMIT IT”. By the way, I’m not defending people who will come and scream “NO HE IS NOT TRANS STOP WITH YOUR STUPID HEADCANONS” either.
But idk, in Yuuto’s case, I’m seriously confused because I even went to check again after I saw someone mentioning he uses ‘ore’ and, in fact, he does use ‘ore’. ‘Ore’ is a male pronoun and my teacher even said to me this, in my first lessons: “You, as a woman, should use watashi or atashi. ‘Boku’ would sound a bit strange coming from a woman, so it’s not recommended to use, but now, ‘ore’ is the pronoun you definitely shouldn’t use because it’s the most ‘manly’ one.”. So… for now, we aren’t sure about Yuuto’s gender. I don’t think if he had gender issues he would use such a pronoun which estabalishes a sense of masculinity and honestly that makes me even more curious about this, unless he’s forced? Maybe his family is too traditional? There are many possibilities. But guess what? It’s still not confirmed, neither interpretations out there are canons yet and people are already making a fuss over it. That’s what annoys me deeply, sighes. Can’t people at least wait for the chapters explaining his backstory to discuss this? And discuss like decent people, not being rude and throwing insults at each other?
Sorry for the long reply, oopssss
This is a scanlation of a special full-color story from Yowamushi Pedal, entitled “Mountain God Winter Party” and featuring Onoda, Manami, and Toudou
who was the main reason why I wanted to translate.
This special was bundled with RIDE.285 in Shuukan Shounen Champion at the beginning of January, so it’s pretty recent. It doesn’t have any explicit spoilers per se, but I think it’s best enjoyed at least after you’ve read to the end of the Inter-High arc.
UH I’M NOT A PRO AT ALL WHEN IT COMES TO SPORTS TERMINOLOGY AND WHATNOT SO… Just think of this as a speed scanlation from a crazed
Toudou Hakogaku fangirl to tide you over until the better scanlators catch up to this point. |D
Sometimes I really don’t feel like existing like not in a suicidal way but I just wish there was a way of pausing life so that I could sleep for a few weeks and figure some stuff out and then not have to feel guilty for missing loads of stuff because really no time had passed at all
If anyone is interested, here is Shinkai’s message when you give the Halloween Candy! (more about the event here, thanks g-b!).
I won’t post in the tag because I don’t want to join directly in the drama so
OK first of all, I just want to say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and if you want to have trans girl Yuuto headcanon, then it is fine. But, please, don’t go around claiming it as canon and forcing your opinion on other people.
First of all, this is the original tweet regarding this information in Japanese. And then above, you can see onkeikun ’s translation about it on her twitter (Thank you so much to onkei for all the translation!) I’d just like to point out that in most of the post claiming Yuuto to be confirmed for trans girl, they seem to leave out the tweet in the last picture.
My capability in Japanese is questionnable, but never was it specified in the original Japanese tweet that he specifically wants to be a girl and that he does not identify as a boy. Yuuto’s ‘girlish desire’ =/= him wanting to be a girl.
In addition, this info was revealed during a signing stage, which may or may not change in the future (just like the breed of Arakita’s dog, which changed after some time), so until it appears in the manga (and hopefully, handled well), I’d like to request for people not to go around and claim that yes, Yuuto is confirmed in canon to be a trans girl and no, you’re wrong for thinking otherwise.
Just because people don’t share your headcanon doesn’t mean that they are transphobic.
Thank you for your time.
because you are one of those I think as a precious friend no matter what...
… T-t-t-thank you anon, this made me smile a bit a-a-and my day got better h-haha..
