Lol, I'm having hard time accepting she's their mother too. Their personality totally the opposite, except for Conrad, I think he got that flirt habit from her. ^^

I don't think she is really their mother... i think it was revealed in episode 2 that the reason they called her mother was because of her being their previous ruler... and i think that it was also revealed that they are all not real siblings... i'll have to rewatch and check to make sure

I just had the strangest thought about Wolf... I think I know the answer and the way I got there is actually interesting. I notice that the beliefs about Wolf being a girl are split soundly into two camps. People who know anime best are insisting that Wolf is a boy because they have seen plenty of his type. The other camp is generally less well experienced with anime and associates his mannerisms with feminity. With that said, here is my answer.

I think it's a colossal bait and switch! Since everyone who knows his type, knows that Wolf has to be a girl, they are going to make Wolf a boy. That would actually be a clever surprise to make Wolf a girl in disguise instead of the pretty boy that everyone expects. They are dropping just a few clues such as Wolf's refusal to strip to the waist to play fair.

I totally agree with you... there are too many things that leave questions... like as you said the fact that he didn't strip and his eyes (long lashes) and the comment his mum made "So thats how boys should act?" in ep 2... I also think he is in disguise and the all know that apart from Yuri.......hehehe .... hmm or maybe I am getting ready for a let down if it turns out to be a boy.. oh well

I hope there are going to be more than 10 episodes to see what embarassing situations they will get up to...^______________^

I couldnt have thought of a better example.... he/she was ambigous to what/whom he/she was till the very end... one of those captivating moment in that anime... very inginous turn of the events

::sigh:: There is no proof that he's a girl. On all the Japanese sites I've been to, novel or otherwise, they have ALL referred to him as a boy. Unless this is such a well kept secret that not even fans of the novel that have read the entire series thus far have been able to figure it out--since every single fanpage I've been to also refers to him as "male"--I think you're going to have to admit that he's just a pretty boy. One of the summaries for the book even noted Wolfram's gender like this: ♂

I really don't know why this is so hard for people to swallow. He's not a girl disguising "herself" as a boy. There is no point for him to do so. What purpose would it serve in the plot? It's not like he would get anything out of pretending he was a boy.

Yep, it does settle it... but ruined our fun!!

I just hope they bring more serious scenes in the future... the light-hearted scenes are cool and all, but I dont like it when it totally dominates the anime... i need a dosage of seriousness from time to time... like if his life is threatened i want the mood to get serious...

I didn't want to know that... actually I'm kind of glad I know... hehe... It's for the best... don't wanna have to go kick my own ass for... uhh...

Anyways, I didn't wanna download this anime at first from the post about it being a guy/guy show. But I got bored and downloaded it... LOL I don't really care about the guy/guy deal anymore, this is just one funny anime.

this reminds me of poor nichol from gundam seed. There were fans that were adamant that he was a girl lol

It's kinda like when yaoi fangirls insisist a character is gay because he stands next to another bishounen ^__^;;
guys come on admit he's a boy or you are being stupid like those girls.
