The tag 'gender unknown' (性別不明) on pixiv is used to categorize illustrations that depict characters whose genders seem to lie outside the ideas and boundaries of gender that we are familiar with. When we spot an androgynous character, we can't tell their gender simply by looking at their body or clothes. It gets even harder when they decide to alternate between acting cool and cute. And there's another thing that makes these characters even more charming--the dilemma that we feel between wanting to know more about these mysterious characters or to stay away from some things that are perhaps best left unknown.
This time we're featuring illustrations of characters who will make you wonder what their genders are. Enjoy!
