Getting picky over details

"The character Kanji from Persona 4 also makes strides not only as being openly gay, but also as one of the games main heros."

Is he really? I recall him saying "I'm not like that!" several times over the course of the game, not to mention the constant hints that he had a thing for Naoto. Anyone want to argue?

I think the whole thing is open to interpretation. Honestly, I don't think he's gay.

Kanji was never openly gay. He seemed to be confused about his own sexuality, which could mean he's bisexual, but there's no confirmation either way. I think any reference to Kanji's sexual orientation should be left as unclear, or just straight.

Oh man. From the picture alone, I can't wait for Jeff and Vinny to get to this guy.

Alright, I removed it. Whoever added that detail, if you want, you could probably discuss the homosexual references that are very prominent in the game. Chie, Yukiko, Kanjo, and Naoto all hinted at the possibility, though they ultimately were heterosexuals. Also, the themes in Persona 2 and 3 could also be added. While in 3 there was only that NPC who loved Mitsuru, I believe one of the main characters in 2 was actually gay.
