Troy Baker is not Word of God. He's said he voiced Kanji from the mindset that he's gay/bi, but that's just how he got into character. Kanji is a complicated character just like Naoto, and just like Naoto, people misconstrue the meaning behind his characterization. Naoto is upset over not being a man, feeling that's holding her back, but through the game and her social link, she learns that it's not her gender that matters, it's that she's happy being the best person she can be, regardless of gender. It basically is a middle finger to transgenderism by saying that your gender means jack-squat. It's who you are as a person that makes you. If you're a sucky man, you're gonna be a sucky woman, and vice-versa.

For Kanji, it's very similar. It's not his orientation that defines him, or his hobbies, it's how he treats others and the person he is. He's confused when starting to interact with Naoto, which some people would like to chalk up to him liking a "guy", but let's remember science... Teenage girls, regardless of what type of clothes they wear, will exude female pheromones. Which attract guys. Kanji could easily liked a male Naoto as a friend, but those pheromones were telling him some other things and saying "You like this person", which confused this straight guy as he wouldn't like a guy normally. Which we find out, he never liked a guy there. He liked a girl.

If anything, the whole "Kanji is gay" argument is insulting to both tomboys and girls who wear their hair short and wear more unisex clothing. It's basically saying that you aren't a girl or that only bi/gay men will like you because you look like a guy. From everything we can tell from our available material, and with no Word of God to say otherwise, Kanji is straight. His sole love interest is a girl. He may be a softer guy under his hard exterior, but that doesn't make him gay either, just a sensitive straight guy. And there's plenty of them out there. Many just still hide it similar to Kanji because otherwise they'd be labeled things like feminine or gay, just like what incessant fanboys/girls insist on doing with Kanji.

(excerpts from a discussion about the lack of same-sex relationships in the game Rune Factory 4 Special)

MorriskinD: So happy they kept it traditional ❤

YHWH_Saves: Amen.

lavamario: If it had any sort of emphasis on homosexual options, I wouldn't be buying it in the first place.

TraineeShanna: Having straight characters is the developer's choice. Why not have fantasy games where characters marry up and bear children? People who are looking for debauchery have all sorts of other options. You do realize social justice warriors don't really buy things? Many will condemn things for not having gay features, but few will buy things because of them. Though if popularity did somehow explode with the alphabet club the series may be further compromised by their demands.

BurningVigor: Same sex crap is always a no sale in my book.

megaboltable: No thank you, keep that away from this series.

(Fortunately there’s just as many people arguing against them, if not more)

No duh teenagers have a high amount of hormones. most teenagers do stuff before they are 18.

Then you why did you say it's okay for them to date? Y'know, dating can actually lead to sex, right? Even exes have still had sex. You admitted that you're a hypocrite.

Dude, you're like a tape recorder saying the same thing. You keep saying "You're a virgin until you have sexual intercourse" then you're a virgin until you nutted yourself from jerking yourself off, ding-dong. Then you'll disagree and denying saying masturbation doesn't count. No, any dude wacked himself off and bust a nut counts as taking his virginity if you using the English dictionary. Just like having sexual intercourse taking away your virginity. Same thing goes for masturbation. .You don't want to admit that and you probably did masturbate which is why you denying it so bad. Smh.

Just because a man doesn't have a hymen doesn't mean he can't be a virgin.

LMFAO who told you that stuff?

You sound like a woman. Get out.
