    Beastars, OR, the PG-13 Remake of Zootopia

    (Sometimes R depending on the exact chapter!) Paru Igataki's Beastars takes place in a world where carnivore and herbivore species live side by side, ostensibly in peace, though racial tension boils below the surface between predator and prey species. The story focuses on Legosi, a large grey wolf who has conditioned himself to avoid using his impressive strength. The uneasy peace between predator and prey is shattered due to a series of attacks on herbivores by carnivores, one of which happens at Legosi's own school, though the culprit remains unidentified, and this is a central conflict for much of the early comic. Making things worse for Legosi, he starts to develop feelings for a rabbit student named Haru, but he is constantly plagued with indecision on whether his feelings are love or a carnivorous desire to eat her. Beastars takes numerous artistic licenses with biology to make its world work. The most apparent is that meat basically is a drug: any predator who consumes some immediately gains strength, but they also develop an addiction. All carnivores have a natural, repressed desire to consume it as well, which puts herbivores at unease, particularly considering herbivores are incapable of consuming it themselves to even the odds. Predators' natural instincts clashing with social and legal expectations drives a lot of conflict in the story. Needless to say, there is an impressive amount of philosophical discussion throughout the manga about the ethics and politics of this sort of world. All in the context of a slice of life manga about high schoolers who are talking animal people. Truly, Zootopia if it was not meant for younger audiences. Beastars has 117 chapters and releases new chapters weekly. An anime is also on the way! The manga will be officially translated into English at some point this year, but there are numerous fan translations floating around. Is anyone else excited to see where this goes?
  2. Legosi vs. Nick Wilde would be fun to see

    Judy and Haru can just be in the background relating on how weird it is to be a rabbit that dogpeople are infatuated with

  3. That sadness when applying for furcon volunteer status and I can't cite my Sonic con staff status as experience.

  4. I suspect the reason Scott Cawthon doesn't introduce Twisted Wolf as a formal FNAF character is he's worried he'll steal Foxy's furry fanbase.

    Doubtful. 22 of the Senate seats up for vote next year are Republican, and they will likely all fall in line behind Trump so they can ride his coattails next cycle. That leaves 31 Republicans, and Democrats need 20 of them to go against Trump to have a veto override. Pelosi's move to sink national emergency reform was wise. She's saving the power to abuse it for a Democratic President.

    Slightly extended trailer for Beastars has dropped, giving us a little more of an idea of what the animation will look like. We also have a release date for the anime: October 2019.

    So Beto O'Rourke is officially in the race now. So far he seems poised to be the centrist candidate, a sort of new Obama. Unfortunately for him, a lot of Democrats don't want another Obama. That's so 11 years ago. Joe Biden continues to top polls and a lot of people anticipate he might join the race. Biden and O'Rourke seem to have a lot of the "they're the only candidate who can defeat Trump" going on... because that worked so well for Hillary. The person who will win will be whoever can take the Rust Belt. Sanders and Yang honestly seem like the best bets in that regard. And while I love Yang, Sanders' brand name means he's more likely to come out on top.
  8. Dark Impetus? *claps hands, turning Young Xehanort into a coyote* Dark ImPAWtus!

  9. So is Mystery Skulls furry or what now

    What with performing at furcons

  10. Forze del Male? *claps hands, turning Ansem, Seeker of Darkness into an anthro wolf* FURze del Male!

      Actually, I suppose he'd be a bear. I've seen artwork that has Terra as a bear.

    Five Nights at Freddy's - NEW TEASER-aaaand it's gone

    I'm just amazed at how sloppily this ad was made that they used a fan model without going through the usual licensing process. Then again, I'm sure the owner of Popgoes is pretty flattered that the FNAF games would use one of their models. Even if not asking for permission is kind of not awesome.
  12. "Vim and Vigor" from Kingdom Hearts is great because every time I hear it I just remember the time Mickey got all edgy when Goofy was apparently killed by a rock

  13. >Scottgames.com updated

     

    AHAHAHA, THE RIDE NEVER ENDS, MATEYS

    Five Nights at Freddy's - NEW TEASER-aaaand it's gone

    Well folks, the ride starts up again. Scottgames.com has updated with a cryptic preview. Also, during the loading, you get a half-second of "Remember Jeremy." Presumably in reference to Jeremy Fitzgerald, the protagonist of FNAF 2. While there's a lot of speculation the FNAF 2 protagonist was actually Michael Afton using it as an alias, who knows...

    https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/3/9/18256622/andrew-yang-2020-president-meme-yanggang This race could get very weird. Democrat Andrew Yang is attracting a lot of support in online communities... both socialists... and a lot of Trump supporters. Not only is Yang cutting across party lines by attracting rural populists concerned about issues like economic depression and opioids, but a lot of white nationalists are backing him. A lot of it stems from economic nationalism white nationalists embrace, but also how Yang has been pointing out issues facing rural white Americans like the opioid economic; white nationalists have latched onto this as evidence Yang wants to keep America white as opposed to... you know, not wanting people to die from drugs? The good news is, Yang is not Both Sides-ing this. He's not claiming he doesn't know enough about guys like Richard Spencer, who has endorsed him. Yang has outright said he rejects racism, white nationalism, and bigotry in all its forms. Yang wants to help poor Americans regardless of where they are located, their Party, and where they live, but he does not want the support of white supremacists.
  16. So I hear Dragon Ball Super might not return because of Kitaro taking its timeslot for another year and I'm such furry trash I only know of Kitaro because one of its recurring villains is a red wolf guy ahahaha

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    ...is it bad that I, being furry trash who loves the Trio de Dangers, only know of Kitaro because of the werewolf guy in it? (I do suppose it's possible the timeslot could change though, right?)

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Sounds like we'll be getting glimpses of the minor universes after all... the main antagonist dispatched his living superweapon to Universe 3. In the meantime, enjoy Jiren punching Zamasu in the face.
  19. Maybe it's my nostalgia-tinted glasses but the Forze del Mal part of Oscurita di Xehanort is my favorite part personally.

  20. I am a madman. I'll fly out to Atlanta for Furry Weekend Atlanta from May 9th to May 13th, come back to Vegas for a single final exam, then drive to Reno on the 15th for 5 days for Biggest Little FurCon.

  21. Always fun when you're in a local furry chat and the subject of Sonic comes up!

  22. Three park furmeets in a row (they're held once a month in Vegas), and it has rained every time.

    This is why I believe in the coyote gods.

    Beastars, OR, the PG-13 Remake of Zootopia

    From some quick research: "Though both authors are Spanish, their main target audience for Blacksad is the French-speaking market" Given your location in Belgium, I think there's an explanation for that. I've never heard of Blacksad until now. Furry things aside, Zootopia did receive a lot of praise from mainstream outlets for tackling privilege, racism, etc., though. While furries really love it, it's still a very successful film that a lot of people could readily understand comparisons to.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/01/politics/john-roberts-conservative-supreme-court/index.html A breakdown of Chief Justice Roberts' voting behavior since Anthony Kennedy's retirement. Many analysts were predicting that for a variety of ideological and office-minded reasons, Roberts would become the swing vote on the Court. This is so far true: he has been siding with liberals on abortion rights, LGBT rights, immigration, and the death penalty. It's not a perfect pattern of course: he still voted to, say, let the transgender military ban go forward until it works its way through the lower courts. But the hardline conservative bench Trump and co. were hoping for with Kavanaugh is not materializing. Roberts has drawn the ire of conservatives ever since he ruled to preserve the health insurance mandate, and he's not stopping any time soon. Let's hope Ginsburg can hold on until 2021, when there's a chance a Democrat can appoint someone to replace her. Honestly, if Dems pull a miracle and somehow get the Senate, they should replace Breyer too. If the worst happens and Trump gets another conservative on the bench, Roberts won't be able to do much to stop it.
