Indeed it is so. That's a translator assumption/error. The Japanese used a gender-neutral word for child, just like every other pronoun referring to Chrona.

Anyone else feel sort of sorry for Chrona? I mean, he/she/it seems sort of like a hapless dupe in the course of all this evilry.

I get the vibe that the translator just got tired of the ambiguity and just figured "screw it, I'll just pick one". Thus doing a disservice to all the readers.

This is SOOOOOO Excalibur. I really wonder who is the very mad mind that crafted this weapon.

Only other explanation is Chrona itself is confused about its gender
No! Boku is generally used by boys, but girls sometimes use it too. Watashi is a gender-neutral pronoun, while atashi is used by women & gay men.

It may be a joke, but the late show says that Excalibur will be back in the 7/28 episode.

I seriously hope it's not a joke. More Excalibur is very welcome.

I just started watching this (on episode 7) and to me Stein sort of reminds me of Lloyd from Code Geass. It's probably all in my head, but they both seem to be crazy scientists.

honestly...I can't stand Excalibur, I skimmed through episode 17, it was alright when it was just a small portion, but a whole episode? nah...too much for my taste.

I had the strong sense we were headed for a turn-around with Krona in terms of good v. evil - he/she was simply being set up as too much of a victim to be tossed aside carelessly.

I'm still betting on boy, BTW, dresses and dubious manga translations aside.
