Foreword: For my little sister who liked Haku and enjoys playing Haku in the Naruto video games.

For those of you who have caught up to Naruto Shippudden's latest episode, Haku and Zabuza appear again via reanimation jutsu. I didn't mind that Haku looked different because it has been a long time. Yet, the preview of episode 264 had Haku wearing lipstick, and his eyes are more larger and feminine. There's no sense of consistency.

To me, it erases the androgyny of Haku. I liked how his gender is mysterious. That was the joke behind one of the scenes where Naruto commented that Haku looked cuter than Sakura.

How do you guys and gals feel about Haku's new looks in Naruto Shippudden?

I doesn't erase the androgyny imo. Call it in consistent I guess, but there's like a ten year gap between this appearance and the old one and Shippuden has a different art style than the old show. His gender is still mysterious imo. He's still a tranny. Now he's an even better tranny.

@sickVisionz:

I had to look up tranny. He's more of a cross dresser than a transvestite in first series.

Haku one of the best traps in anime. Bridget from Guilty Gear is the best trap in video games.

Wow, Haku looks even more like a girl in Shippuden. I agree with sickVisionz point, the art style in Shippuden is different from the old Naruto series. I dont think its a big deal though. 'cause looking back at the manga, Haku did have lipstick all along

Naruto (earlier chapters) *Note: the first image, he has really round and feminine eyes

Naruto (later chapters):

@Sonata:

Thanks. Whoa, androgynous nun!

@KuroNekoXIII:

What?! Haku originally had lipstick on. What kind of male ninja wears lipstick? Thanks, Kuro, for the manga images.

At least Bridget doesn't wear lipstick to become a trap.
