Pics of what, Naruto calling Haku "sis"/"lady", or Haku calling herself a "man" to Naruto but "kid" or "person" the rest of the time?SASSZAIN wrote:its very tempting to post PICS OR IT DIDNT HAPPEN!!
I agree that Naruto is quite fatuous, he did fall for Haku's lie about being a man after all, but I don't think that necessarily discounts his opinion. Naruto is renowned for his ability to relate with others and see them for who they really are, and he did pick up on the fact that Haku loved Zabuza. Lets also not forget that Naruto met Haku face to face without any preconceptions about who she really was or what her gender might be. He met her as if she was any other stranger to happen upon his training area. It was that unbiased meeting and discussion that lead Naruto to conclude that Haku was female.SASSZAIN wrote:But I'll post more than that.
What Naruto calls anyone doesn't matter, hes an idiot.
Great. Thank you for your consideration and willingness to vivify this discussion. I look forward to reading your posts.SASSZAIN wrote:I'll rewatch the episodes, and I'll even read the Manga to get even more depth. Since you honestly wholeheartedly seem dead set on debating this further, I'll give you a few good rounds

Who?Cookie wrote:He's just sooo dreamy.
Yeah, it's not. But the fact that it is her job to gather supplies like that while dressed as a girl does indicate that she needs to play both the role of a male when fighting and a female when gathering supplies among strangers.Guren wrote:I'd like to state some facts that I picked up on
-Haku is shown picking herbs, which is a typical female's job, even though thats not proof
I don't know who that is. Probably a later Shippuden character. I am a dub only watcher, so I can't comment on it. But just because her ability may be seen elsewhere by another girl doesn't indicate that Haku was one.Guren wrote:-Haku's fighting style is ice, which is very similar to Guren's crystal style, who is very much a female
True, but that seems to be a common theme in the series, where the heroes don't kill the enemy. Plus, Temari killed Tayuya.Guren wrote:-Haku also largely resents killing, even going as far as knocking Sasuke unconscious to keep him from fighting Haku more. Most females (though there are exceptions) are shown as more kind-hearted than most males.
That's a good point. I can mention that in my next update. Thanks.Guren wrote:-Even though you mentioned Haku's fingers, you did not talk about Haku's hands in general. Most females have more slender hands and long fingers, while men normally have wider hands and fingers. This is not always true but shown by the close-ups of Haku doing hand signs, Haku's hands are very slender, similar to females.
That's cool. Thanks for posting.Guren wrote:You probably noticed I used no pronouns when talking about Haku because even though I believe Haku is a famale, it is not assured.Guren
Then perhaps this Guren can offer some more hints regarding Haku's gender. Though I doubt it. Haku's mother fled the clan and then had Haku after that. So the clan probably doesn't even know that Haku was even born.SASSZAIN wrote:About Guren and Haku's styles, They both are from the same clan.
She was lying. She did the same thing when she said she was a tracker ninja and that Sasuke was dead.Dragon X wrote:aku told naruto when he saw naruto at the forest that he was a boy.
Thank you, I am glad you liked it.KikiMonkeyLover wrote:Great point. When I saw Haku I thought she was a girl, but when she said that she was a boy, I kinda believed her...... well that clealy doesn't mean that she is ACTUALLY a boy just because she said that. I still believed that she was a girl.
I had no proof but this makes a lot of sense.
True that he is the only one who knows for sure, but that doesn't mean we can't still talk about it or think thus issue through ourselves. What if I had said that only Kishimoto knows back before I posted this? Then you would not have been able to read it.KikiMonkeyLover wrote:People should stop arguing about Haku being a girl or a boy because the only person that would know and prove half or few wrong would be Masashi Kishimoto.
I hope that wasn't the rebuttal you've been working on for months. Anyway, Germanota has no class. Haku was a respectable character. Believe it!SASSZAIN wrote:Haku is a LadyGaGa
Prove it.Viola wrote:hey u! i don't know who u r, but don't u dare talking 2 my haku like that! He is 100% a boy.
No. Haku must be one or the other since she showed physical and romantic attraction toward Zabuza, a male.Viola wrote:He's neither gay nor a girl! understand?
I didn't say that proved she was a girl. In fact I said it did not prove it, but it is strong evidence in favor of her being a girl because of what Haku's situation was.Viola wrote:just because he looks like, or sounds like, or acts like one, doesn't mean he's one!
There is if you want to know what gender she was.Viola wrote:there's no need 2look deep down inside him,
Well most did not. Either they were like me and they knew Haku was a girl after seeing all the proof of that in the anime, or they first though she was a girl and then were deceived into thinking she was a boy and have held to that myth ever since. Very few thought she was a boy right from the start.Viola wrote:any anime fans can easily recognize that Haku is a boy.
I get the impression that you're refering to anime characters that are male but are drawn to look, sound, and act feminine. Bishounen, am I right? Well if that's the case then I must point out that Haku's situation differs greatly from those characters. Nothing of her story or background points to her being a bishounen. 1. She would not have been raised as a girl by her parents if she had been a boy. 2. Zabuza would not treat her like a girl or allow her to look like one if she had been a boy. 3. If she had been a boy, then looking, sounding, and acting like a girl would have made her weak, thus contradicting the purpose that Zabuza gave her to be strong and a weapon that Zabuza would use to kill those who opposed him.Viola wrote:My guess is, u r not one, may b u r just jealous
