Oh wow, I'd also assumed Nanachi was female.

So I went back and watched bits of the Mitty and Nanachi scenes in episode 13 of the first season. I can see how one might conclude she was sexually amorphous though I still think she looks more like a girl. If she had had a male voice actor, the expectations might have been different.

It's hard to have a gender-neutral character with male VA (unless it is someone like Ayumu Murase or Akira Ishida).

I would expect Nanachi to be female for the simple fact of Reg going over-the-top trying to sniff and hug her. Ofc, Nanachi smelling good to Reg is not any kind of definitive proof that Nanachi is a female, but usually such things are attributed to women more than men.

Exactly this. Nanachi looks very uncomfortable when Reg does this but not nearly as much when Riko nuzzles.

Reg even questions it and Nanachi responds with "The way YOU rub me is too lewd!!"

So...I think Nanachi is a girl....possibly with a crush on Mitty lol. Doesn't seem to like boys at least. xD

The other kicker is Reg is able to tell apart boys from girls...in the case of Marulk (sp?) If Nanachi was a boy, Reg probably wouldn't get that physically close.

Murase would be an excellent choice. I can hear some features of his Akira in Kemono Jihen carrying over to a gender-neutral Nanachi.

I think Sawashiro Miyuki could also voice this role with an obscured gender. She has given excellent performances as the boyish GeGeGe no Kitarou and teen-ager Shinkarou from Kurenai. Neither of them is a strongly gendered character.

There are a bunch opf female VAs who can do convincing boys. I still think Nanachis current VA does a good job. She may sound not as boyish, but I think it is delibarate on anime staff part.

I'm not sure Reg being a furry is conclusive either.

Personally - at first I thought Nanachi was definitely a girl but then their androgyny grew on me.

To be fair, I thought it was pretty obvious Marulk was a boy right from the start.

I have a feeling Riko didn't know...since she waltzed out naked in front of him.

Indeed, but Riko is as oblivious as chunk of wood to most things most of the time.

True.

About Nanachi using the pronoun "oira"....I was playing Genshin Impact this evening and noticed the female mascot Paimon uses "oira" as well.

There is also the matter in the third movie with Nanachi and Reg:

Spoiler:


Idk, Nanachi's behavior just seems more 'girlish' than boyish to me.

"Oira" has more rural connotations than gender, I think its the equivalent of an American saying "y'all" or something... in that ballpark anyway.

I'm pretty sure the idea with Nanachi is that, after being afflicted by the curse's transformation, Nanachi no longer has differentiating sexual organs. (The author has said that "when Nanachi was a human being, there was a gender.")

I was just about to suggest that. I've thought Nanachi was a girl human, but is now a non-gendered nonhuman.

Thats certainly possible.

The situation with Marulk is equally interesting. Hes canonically male and identifies as a boy, but its never been disclosed why Ozen forces him to cross-dress.

I always thought it was Ozen fetish or something like that.

That may be the case but so far Tsukushi has avoided the subject.

I think he leaves a lot for the audience to decide for themselves but delvers are pretty fucking eccentric as it is so I never thought too much of it.
