My experience with the show is fairly limited (basically just Sonichu and the occasional "Jessie gets banged by a bulbasaur" comic) but I was under the impression that James had always been a ballbusting ladyboy.
Rodents of Unusual Size He's more of a fey twink and Jessie is his fag hag but secretly in love with him. It's a very unhealthy relationship that thrives on co dependency.
MrBuddy Back in the 1970s there was a magazine for gay Japan men called Barazoku that means rose tribes. When you see a male anime character that gets associated with roses a lot, the anime's usually hinting that he's gay. On the other hand Moonlight Knight uses roses as a weapon but they're hinting he's gay because he's always saving Sailor Moon and he's romantically linked to her. I think it's more like he uses the roses he would give to her as a weapon to protect her.
MrBuddy 1. Japan = Japanese
2. but they're hinting = but they're not hinting
3. people who post late at night when they're tired make embarrassing mistakes
dairyqueenlatifah Ah yes, the "Lost Episode" that was aired out of order in the US because they apparently didn't notice this scene until the last minute and needed time to edit it.
Because animated boobs give American kids seizures.
