In my understanding, Tsukasa's and Subaru's sexual preferences are clearly defined as always heterosexual for the gender they think Tsukasa is at the time. Their preferences are ambigously applied to the two sets of genders because Tsukasa has an ambigous understanding of his/her gender. After Tsukasa returns to the real world, his understanding would be much less ambiguous. However, I believe that a small part of An is still attached to I=male, because he understood this when he formed a relationship with Subaru, and could not exit this relationship, and therefore Tsukasa=male, without denying himself completely (which would have caused him to bend before Morganna). Their relationship, which I openly assert to be romantic, would in this theory be a romantic relationship between Subaru and An as far as she still holds to I=male, which was the impression I got from the end of "Return." But was the show truly intending it this, or were they intending it to be homosexual/bisexual? It seems possible to me, because of the degree of nuance they were willing to put into Sign, but I cannot be sure.
+
In my understanding, Tsukasa's and
I would like to know whether the general public and the story-linear evidence (such as in .hack\\Zero, which I not read, but which I know contains information about their relationship in general) agrees with me. If you can debunk the logic of my arguement, or the truth of Premise 4(especially with information from .hack\\zero), I would appreciate you debating this with me.

P.S. If the creators of .hack have openly and directly asserted anything about this subject, please let me know. But if they haven't yet done anything directly, the debate should be kept as open as possible, since this view requires a degree of nuance to be held to and the creator may not have fully expressed it anywhere because of this. The evidence I am looking for is a nuanced analysis of their relationship which debunks or upholds my own. (My own is limited to Sign and what I can gather from Wikipedia's article on Zero).
