Also about Beatrice

Spoiler for Hiden:
Has to be a man right? I guess they didn't want to reveal that because the shounen-ai would be kinda unappealing I guess? Because that would make the shannon-george romance shounen ai as well. I wonder what his sexual problem was though? Was he a tranny or something?
Spoiler for Hiden:
Beatrice/Yasu's true gender is left ambiguous as you know. I felt Yasu was female as the more dominant personalities are female. (Beatrice for being the Golden Witch and Shannon for being the Winner in the "Duel of Love.") Anyway, Yasu I believes suffers from Gender Identity Disorder. Basically, when Natsuhi threw Yasu and the caretaker of the cliff, the fall damaged Yasu's sexual organs (Basically preventing her from developing a penis or vagina or from having breast if she was indeed female. So basically she has a body "incapable of love" (From the end of EP 7), so Yasu doesn't know his/her gender basically.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah it was ambiguous. However I assumed that it would be easier for a male to put on a pair a breasts (as Shannon) then a girl to tie them down (as Lion/Kanon). Though I guess it's possible he/she has no breasts. Also I wasn't sure why the author didn't want to reveal this information, if she/he was in fact a female I would assume he would do so and there would be little problem. However Beatrice actually being male and being romanced by Battler/George might lead to some awkward feelings amongst fans possibly so he chose to left it ambiguous. Either that or he wanted the Kanon/Shannon question to linger.

Also Natsuhi refers to him/her as the "Man from 19 years ago". I'm not sure if Natsuhi knew the babies gender due to neglect though but I find that doubtful.

Though I guess that one's up for speculation really and it could go either way.


And done. Well the ending was quite...depressing or not so depressing depending on how you look at it. I'm glad it didn't really pull key magic on me as I was kind of afraid of that. The game was good stuff, but it was superbly long and I'll probably never consider reading it again simply because of that.
