I'd think of Mana-sama as a female!

06-22-2003, 05:00 AM
Mana looks female be reality hes a guy.

He's a friggin guy! As long as he has his twig and berrys between his legs, he's a guy!

06-22-2003, 11:10 AM
He likes to wear femine clothing although he is a man. Maybe he wants people to think that he is female..? But he is a man.

man...seen pics of him in pants...definately a man...tho..he's the prettiest man I've ever seen ( only guy who beats out Toshiya IMO)

06-22-2003, 12:29 PM
Even though he dresses like a woman, and is a REALLY convincing woman, you can still see when he's in costume that he's physically a guy~ for one, he has no curves or breasts, and he doesn't put all kinds of padding in his clothes. And from what I've heard, he is quite the skirt chaser. Heck, I'd surely date him if the opportunity ever came! He's definitely a guy to me :P

06-22-2003, 03:25 PM
Male. He will always be male unless he changes his DNA. Now, if you want to consider him being man or woman, that's something that is debateable. :P

I consider him a man because he uses male pronouns for himself and considers himself a man.

hum......that's interesting......i dunno, maybe the first time when I know about her all the pics were so girly and though I know that she is really a "he", i do see her as a girl except for some special occations (like "which artist do you consider as your prince?" LOL)

No matter what he looks like on the outside, he will always be a man... right? ^^;

06-22-2003, 05:03 PM
He is whatever he wants to be.

06-23-2003, 02:26 AM
...As long as he has his pants on.

06-23-2003, 09:08 AM
That's an odd question... O.o well, given that I admire men for being as beautiful as possible, I'm not going to admire Mana for just being another girl but for being an extraordinary man.

06-23-2003, 09:42 AM
I don't believe he's ever presented himself as anything other than a guy in a dress.

No. He will always be a male.

But if he gets surgery or takes hormones, then he will become she and be a woman. A male woman.

An example is Harisu (http://www.harisu.com).

06-23-2003, 03:57 PM
Mana wears dresses yes, but I've never seen him try to imitate having breasts or hips and whatnot. I think he just likes to wear dresses(Don't blame him~!XD) and can look extremely feminine. So, he'll always be a man in my mind. >_>;; It's not really too important anyway.

..wow. Harisu is *extremely* pretty. Geez...it's crazy. XD

So i guess i see things differnently!
but this poll is worth posting because before I thought everyone sees her as a female~~ (ie/ if you can choose for Mana-sama.....lol)

06-23-2003, 10:23 PM
mana is prettier than most girls...o_O
but he's still a guy.

06-24-2003, 09:03 AM
one of the prettiest guys i've ever seen (prettier than a lot of girls too!) ... but still a guy ^^

He's a man in denial...but a damn good guitarist and artist by far. Moi Dix Mois is just...wow.

I'd need to see him without makeup before I could make that call. I once thought Dir en grey were pretty, too. Once you wash their faces, they're not particularly. ;)

Ah, well there you go! Based on those pics, I'd have to say "He's okay, but bring on the lipstick."

06-25-2003, 09:23 PM
wow mana is pretty even without makeup.

06-28-2003, 12:09 AM
i know mana is a man
but i still refer to him as "her"

06-28-2003, 12:11 AM

i think dir is nice looking even w/out makeup O_o
i woundt' exactly call them "pretty"
but they acutally do look like what men should look like...and i think thats a good thing..
as for mana..i'm scared of that..boy..er.girl..thing O_o;; 8shudders*

anyways, sorry :X i'm just too much of a devoted Diru fan, i think they're great looking w/out makeup ^_~

Hey acutally
everyone's good looking WITH makeup......without..thats a WHOLE other story *hehe*

06-28-2003, 12:25 AM
LOL..die-chan..yess...Diru...MMM...they aren't *supposed* to be pretty out of the makeup..lol....actually out of make up I think Kyo is way cuter >_>...in that *AWwwww..look what he did* kind of way .....lmao

tho I do like Mana...it's not the same as my love for Dir en grey I wuved them first an I'll always wuv 'em the most ^^;;....I think it's the fact that Mana.s just...so...pretty...I can't help it...it's like I want to touch him just to be sure he's freaking REAL ...lol

*laugh* True enough!

06-28-2003, 07:37 AM
he is a man. i think he hasn't changed sex so... :P

06-28-2003, 10:04 PM
I find this quite funny...I stumpled upon a Jrock forum board with all these threads about Mana gossip and such, and everyone was convinced that he had had plastic surgery. I really should find the link to show everyone on the board, I mean it was so silly, a bunch of fangirls saying that he looked too perfect to not have had facial reconstruction. Mana sans makeup pics do not tell lies my friend ^^; Looks like some people don't understand the true power of professionally applied makeup o_O

06-28-2003, 11:13 PM
WOW....ummm...that's way out there...LMAO....I just think they can't accept that he's prolly prettier than they are >_>

07-04-2003, 03:21 AM
mana is the hotest guy out there ^.^ i have a thing for men who wear make up and dresses @_@

07-31-2003, 02:11 AM
I still refer to Mana as "she", I can't help it, it just stuck.
And it will continue as much while she crossdresses off stage.

If Mana refers to him/herself as "he" than I suppose than he should be called a man. I don't think of it strictly int he physical sense, because I know way too many people who have different gender identities.
I'll continue to think of him as a woman though because in all behaviors and dress he acts as such.

He would make a pretty convincing woman but I still consider him as a guy...

08-01-2003, 11:29 AM
i see mana as a pretty boy because i like pretty japanese boiz.

08-01-2003, 10:01 PM
i vote girl. though he is a guy i still have trobble saying "Him" when refering to mana-sama

08-02-2003, 08:17 AM
I say man. :p I have no problems with refering to him as "he". And plus I LOVE guys in dresses.

08-02-2003, 03:46 PM
In interviews, he refers back to himself by using Boku, when bychance he speaks.

08-02-2003, 08:10 PM
and what does boku mean???

08-03-2003, 01:35 AM
It's like a casual form that a male uses to refer back to himself.

Lady Orunitia
08-03-2003, 01:58 AM
Most of the time I just say Mana, or he. But it's like Mana is both sexes; on the left you have girls, on the right you have boys, and dead center you have Mana. Mana also comes across as being asexual, I can't really picture him with a girl or boy...he is his own entity.

08-03-2003, 03:20 AM
umm. are we talking figuratively or physically? ^_^;;;;;

Lolita Goth
08-03-2003, 02:13 PM
lol well he really looks feminine...first time i saw him I thought he was a she but then I found out hes a guy i was like O_O too pretty for a guy lol anyways I love the stuff he wears, its awesome

Lady Orunitia
08-04-2003, 12:45 AM
Figuratively. Totally....:)

08-04-2003, 11:56 AM
Mana is a man, a sexy sexy man :D

[Though I do sometimes slip up and refer to him as "her"! :X]

Lolita Goth
08-04-2003, 04:04 PM
lol he is a sexy man, and i also sometimes call him a her lol cant help it but to sometimes mistake him for a chick lol

Moogle Hiromi
08-04-2003, 10:06 PM
I think I 'accidentally' called him "she" once, but that was the first time I physically spoke about him. And thenI was talking about make-up, so i think that was what made me slip-up in the first place. :p

Mana says "boku" which is so dude-ish. Or tomboyish. But then Mana is not a tomboy! So we can come to the conclusion he is not confused about his sex. Oh and I reckon we rarely see him in anything tight around the bottom, so no one can spot the package. XD XD XD
And he is very very sexy man..... *drools*

haaham of coz figuratively~~ haaha~~ But seriously, I always call her a "she" when I talk about her. But of coz I know he is a guy......just.......i dunno......she is so successful with her female image.

08-07-2003, 07:00 PM
I think he's just kinda stupid looking, personally.

08-07-2003, 09:21 PM
he's not beautiful at all...his face is too man-ish to pull off that type of makeup and clothing.

now the transvestites from Thailand...they're hot stuf!

08-07-2003, 11:27 PM
Well.. I think Mana makes a gorgeous woman regardless of what everyone says :D [I wish I looked that hot!]

08-30-2003, 04:36 PM
Mana-sama is a very, very pretty man. it's ironic that if he were really a female he would not be so infamous.

08-31-2003, 05:35 PM
I saw Mana live, and he is very manly. ^^ He's become quite masculine in M10M, even though he's still wearing the dresses and makeup. I can't imagine anybody thinking of him as female after having seen him at a show, because he really radiates "MAN" vibes.

But I never considered him a female anyway. As long as he uses male speech he must be thinking of himself as a man, so I don't think it would be right if I didn't think of him that way too.

I agree, Mana is a man; makeup simply works wonders.

I mean, is it just me, or does anyone else see the Howard Stern resemblance in this picture?

Lady Orunitia
09-09-2003, 09:57 AM
Nope. I see no Howard Stern resemblance AT ALL.
AT ALL!! Actually, that kinda looks like Yu~ki a little bit...

I mean, have you looked at Howard Stern?? He has that beak of a nose and long face, really pronounced adam's apple....granted the glasses look about the same, but that's it.

09-14-2003, 04:40 PM
he's a MAN baby*austin powers voice*

09-17-2003, 05:14 PM
This is also a question I have...consider him male or female? When he's clearly living as a man, working as a man and well...he's a man. What's there to consider? He's a MAN. Looks muuuuuch better without makeup too. There is a such thing as too much makeup on a man(or anyone for that matter). I like black eyeliner and little bit of scruff.

09-24-2003, 04:24 PM
Pretty man. :p Must be so hard to be so beautiful *swoon*

10-16-2007, 03:50 PM
Mana-sama is definently a guy. And if I wasn't completely infatuated with him before, I am now. I had found a picture of him without make up and no sunglasses. He looks like an angel. I knew he was beautiful behind the mask. I don't even want to think of what kind of embarrassing things I would do if Mana was in the vacinity of me right now...


10-31-2007, 02:25 PM
Mana = penis.
Penis = male.
Therefore, Mana = male.

Yay, the transitive property of Mana's sex :)
