Everyone’s favorite hacker, Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, or Ed for short, wasn’t always a girl. Initially, Ed was conceived as a boy. Toshihiro Kawamoto, the anime’s character designer, had already begun designing the character as a boy before making Ed a girl.
In an interview with IGN, however, director Shinichiro Watanabe clearly stated that discussing Ed’s gender was essentially meaningless and that Ed is non-binary.
According to the director, his idea was to create a character that surpassed even the notion of humanity. Although Ed sometimes identifies as a girl, to her, it matters little.
