This day the Live Card from Yamato, one of the characters of One Piece. There has been speculation about her gender identity for a while, mainly in manga. And, in the anime he barely made his first appearance.
The fact is that in the work of Eiichiro Oda she identifies as a man, and those around her speak to her in such a way. That is why it was thought that she was transgender, like O-Kiku (Kikunojo) who is a trans woman. But in reality, it is not the case Yamato.
Yamato’s profile confirms that she is a woman
The Live Card clearly says that it is cis female: ie cisgender woman. Is this information canon? It is, since Room Review and approve this description yourself.
In that sense there is no discussion, since it is an expression of the author’s will. As expected, this sparked complaints from some fans via Twitter.
One of them, @grantthethief, he commented on his account ‘Vivre Cards is a’ disappointing but not surprising ‘situation.
One Piece and Aquaman had a strange official crossover
To the above, he added ‘but personally, it doesn’t change the way I’ve seen Yamato and I will continue to see him’. Another fan of One Piece, @Khaluffy, said ‘Ode after confirming Yamato’s gender’ and showed an animated GIF of the villain Donquixote Doflamingo.
@Peqchessss, for his part, highlighted ‘Trans people deserve to be treated with respect no matter what, even if Yamato’s gender is confirmed as F, this gives no excuse for being transphobic’.
O-Kiku if she is a transgender woman in One Piece
@Peqchessss he finished saying ‘there was no problem with trans people believing that Yamato was representing them’.
@sofftaces projection ‘Yamato’s Vivre Card announcement is not the time for some to say’ oh, I told you so ‘, I don’t understand why you would be happy for a community to lose representation. It costs 0 not to be horrible ‘.
@Zach_Logan let see ‘regarding Yamato’s Vivre Card: apparently they list Kiku and Yamato’s sex, not gender’.
He continued saying ‘Also, please don’t take the Vivre Cards as gospel. The only canon is manga, and that will always be true. Oda does not write VCs. Often mistakes are made ‘.
As we mentioned before, Live Cards yes they are reviewed and approved by the creator of One Piece. As to O-Kiku, yours specifies that you are a transgender woman. @catatonictrash made other comments about the situation.
What stood out was ‘oh, the usual creepy dudes are already coming out of their nests to comment on my Yamato art with’ Yamato is female ‘. That was fast’.
@Sad1qOP finished off with ‘Yamato confirmed as female:’ Oda is a hack ” I’ll stop reading One Piece ” Appealing to men ” Just for merchandise ”. That is, it commented on all possible scenarios in terms of comments.
