Simple enough to find out. I hereby call a vote on the design of Shamisen! All those who support making Shamisen a female ginger with freckles, type "Aye!" All opposed, type "Nay!"

Aye!

By the way, Kaisos, I've been wondering: what's your avatar from?

Persona 4. New game coming out on the 9th. Been looking forward to it since I started playing the previous game...

Since it was my idea I'll refrain from voting.

Aye for having Shamisen be a hermaphrodite! How's that for rarity?

...

Fine, aye for female ginger with freckles.

When we have to put this much effort in deciding how to gender bent such a minor character, it's not worth it.

I say we just make an exception with the cat, and move on.

OK. That should do it to prove that people DO want to make Shamisen a female ginger with freckles.

All characters featured in the novels/anime and the cat counts. Go with what's simplest, as long as female Shamisen's included.

BTW, any thoughts on who should be Shami's(f) VA?

In the novels, Shamisen(m) was supposed to be baritone; but the anime used the nasal rasp of Genma Saotome. Probably a shout out to his father-of-the-year moment when he trained his son in the Cat Fist. In this same vein, the appropriate VA for Shamisen(f) would be Megumi Hayashibara.

Or perhaps a more matronly voice like "Jyunana-sai desu!" Inoue Kikuko? That's just as funny to me.

Or Kikuko Inoue in her evil voice.

That would be awesome.

Now I am thinking of Shami-chan having a voice sounding like the character Lobelia Carlini from Sakura Taisen 3 (also voiced by Inoue Kikuko).

After checking the vote pattern for that match, I just have to say, DAMN YOU, LELOUCH FANGIRLS (AND FANBOYS WHO CLAIM TO BE FANGIRLS).
