and you're saying you dont like the implied cat mannerisms? thats kind of the appeal man
I dont even know where you're getting this though since all I can think of is bad harem animes
It seems like i cant win either way
the furries claim that its "not furry" and everyone else gives me crap for it
"Also, let me say how disappointed I am there is no awesome anime that I would watch that stars furries."
Escaflowne? One Piece? there are a few man
I don't like a lot of things, especially when girls are portrayed with superficial manerisms only meant to make them look supah-kawaii. For example, cats do NOT normally hop up on one foot holding a paw curled up and smiles in a "teehee~!/uguuu~" way. The fact that they make a lot of catgirls do that to show how "kittenish" they are irks me a lot. My biggest annoyance was the Sailormoon live action show when Luna turned into a little catgirl kid. BARF. But that's also my general issue with "moe" stuff (ooh she's so adorable being happy! Oh she's so adorable being sad, oh she's so adorable angry, sleepy, being hungry etc etc.. bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh I couldn't get through K-on because of that stuff). >___>
I know Wolf's Rain is not actually furry. It's just that a lot of animes have a tough time showing good-looking animals, but Wolf's Rain made a serious attempt with wolves. Seems a lot of animators in that series did have a tough time and liked keeping the characters human some episodes for that very reason. Most animals in animes look stupid or unappealing to me in style, or just stick to Level 1 style (overly caricaturized or SD/cutied up). It would be nice to have more serious/human proportioned anthros in starring/lead roles.
And Escaflowne does not STAR furries. Merle (sp?) is just a side-joke-cute character. She doesn't add much to the series besides being the cute cat girl that gets into troublesss-aww-so-cuuute. Which is a shame.. I love cats! I want them to be awesome and have cool roles, but alas! >_> And.. I don't watch One Piece, but as far as I know the only anthro looks like a stuffed animal. xD

The "pseudo" qualifier is there because of the art style, which, going by the chart, is no more than 10-25% furry. However, the titular "+Anima" refers to a group of people who, for some reason or another, merged with an animal spirit sometime during their childhood.
They are also discriminated against by the non-"+Anima" majority.
See the parallels? Yeah I do too. But it's not really about furs, it's about kids and discrimination.
They are just humans with animal parts/spirits. It's cute, but it doesn't really count as furry art to me. >_>
My criteria is mainly based on the FACE. If the face is typical human in whatever style, it's not a furry to me, but more of a human with some animal parts. .. Not as cool. lol

I shouldnt need to give examples of what im talking about since people would have seen it
quite possibly anime inspired
I have a beef with this as well. I dislike clashing or poorly-planned palettes. I agree that it comes with the popularity of rave culture probably.. and Sonic. LOL
