Of course, they both have tails, but aparently almost all the male characters of their race have tails too, not just the womens. Check for instance Episode 2, when they were reconstructing the altar.
Not only those with fluffy ears - like Eruruu, but those with elf-like ears like Oboro or Oyaji can have small tails, hidden inside the panties. Even Benawi has a tail, too.

As for the voice, like someone else said, it's a common practice female seiyus give voice to very young male characters.

But the REAL problem is: They're both gays!! That's why they were trying jewely in episode 06!

Here's the proof:

Spoiler for The twins's genre:
It makes me think that this segment would be ideal to animate it into an omake short for the Utawarerumono DVD specials.

You know, if they did choose to reveal their genders in an omake, would that still count for this thread?

hmmm Hmmm...
It seams that this question about the gender of the twins is everywhere on internet!!
I read most of the propositions, and i look trought all episodes to find a clue.

As an artist, i looked at it from the drawing style point of view.
Yes, the big eyes are more often used for women and young kids, but i found some exceptions.

But if you watch again the episodes, you will see that what make you distinguish male and female, its a trick we usually use in drawing.
we made the low eyelashes more visible for the female, for animals, human or other species.

So for me the twins are female in the serie.

Regards from a french caraibbean guy!

I don't follow with the way you put it.

Anyway, when people put forth the arguement that they might be female because of the nature of how the character designer made them (it is common to many female anime characters), in this case, once again, it is worth noting that the way these characters are protrayed in the anime is very accurate to how they are protrayed in the game.

Picture of the twins from the game:

sorry if my explaination is not good. Maybe my english isnt well enought

i just compared how they made the difference in this specific anim, and if you forget the breast, the lower eyelashes is the only one!

young girls and young boys can easily found in peasants.

this is a reflex for an artist when you want to avoid confusion.

but you r right, maybe thats what they wanted to make! lol

we will see if they will give us the solution!

Hmm, I still don't quite understand what you infer by "lower eyelash", but if you are saying their eyes are drawn in a style that is common for female anime characters, that is true, my point is just that that aspect of their appearances seems to carry over from the game (so maybe you at least get what I'm saying ).

FYI some guys can look like girls.

and just to let you all know .. they're guys


this is straight from Wiki

Dori & Gura (ドリィ & グラァ, Dori & Gura? ) (Seiyū - Akeno Watanabe)
Twin archers serving under Oboro. They are very androgynous, and as such their sex is difficult to ascertain, even by other characters. Some controversy surrounds their true gender, but most evidence is extremely speculative. It should be noted that in the game, they identify themselves as male.
There are several ways to tell them apart. For one, Dori has purple eyes while Gura's are blue. Also, the bottom part of Dori's clothes are blue while with Gura they are red.

He must be refering to the doujin above, which I didnt find particularly tasteful. In anycase, with regard to lower eyelashes, I really dont think I see any lower eyelashes. gardien perhaps you'll like to show us how?

Firstly, thats based on the game, so it really doesnt count. Secondly, never bet your life on a wiki.
