I didn't know that Envy was a male. Or do homunculi not have genders or something?
I'm only an occasional watcher of Fullmetal Alchemist.
Well there are 2 different versions of FMA. There is the first anime and then also the second anime that's now running which follows the canon manga.
In the first anime Envy definitly is male because you find out that he was originally Ed's half-brother when he was a human.
In the new anime though/canon manga story....Envy is technically genderless really but he does take on more of a male form/role.
Honestly Envy pretty much makes himself look like a feminine male. I've seen straight guys say that Envy makes them feel kind of 'weird'. I feel like Envy takes on this form because he wants members of both sexes to find him beautiful and 'envy' his body or something like that.
That's just a random theory I have anyway, as to why he decides to look the way he does considering that he has the ability to look like anything he wants.
He must find the form he takes attractive or he wouldn't make himself look like that. He did refer to it as his 'cute' form anyway.
I briefly got into Dragon Ball Z in high school. Frieza definitely looked and sounded feminine at first:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvNudNEYZMQ
Well, that's the English dub.
It's been ages since I watched DBZ(we're talking back when I was 15/16) which was 10 years ago now.
Have you guys ever heard Frieza's Japanese voice? It's actually male.
Not to mention the way he beefs out his muscles at the end of his fight with Goku. I mean....how can that be a girl? o_O Really.
Although he is a weird alien dude. We don't actually know if his species has females so they might all just be asexual or something.
Anyway, I'll say that the gender of a voice actor doesn't really mean much because there are actually a lot of obviously male characters who are voiced by women. Goku in the Japanese version is voiced by a girl and he's obviously male.
I'm pretty sure that Naruto from Naruto and Ed from Fullmetal Alchemist are also voiced by women in the Japanese versions. These characters are all very obviously males but voiced by women.
So a lot of male characters are voiced by women. I can't think of a female character that was voiced by a male though.
My Envy cosplay is pretty much finished and I took some pics the other day.
The pics are kind of crappy though since I had to take them myself and therefore had to use mirror reflection to get my whole body/outfit in the pic and to do that I also had to climb on the bed. LOL.
I still need to get some kind of non-toxic red marker or pen to draw his symbol on my leg.
I don't think Rorschach would approve of my outfit. LOL LOL.
