Fave Tezuka Furs
« on: October 29, 2022, 12:15:25 AM »
Sooooo Iím a huge Tezuka fan, but nowadays a lot of his stuff tends to be pretty obscure, especially in English. Iím a bit of a datahoarder and try to keep files of as much of his stuff as I can, Iím always checking to see if anything new to download pops up. Anyway, I thought Iíd share some of my favorite Tezuka furs, from media not everyone has easy access too. Kimba shouldn't be the only one in the spotlight, after all! I think Iíll start the thread with just one character and then add to it as I find more faves.

First up is two cute fox characters from Tales from the Old Testament! Itís a rather interesting anime, it was commissioned by the Vatican, and Tezuka passed before the pilot film was finished. It follows, as the title says, the Christian old testament, but with the addition of a comic relief fox. The main fox character we see most of the time is Rocco, but thereís another cute fox she has kids with.

I was kinda surprised, Rocco is clearly a girl and talks with a feminine voice later in the series, and her mate is also very clearly a girl too. Usually you see character designers bend over backwards to ensure everyone knows this oneís a boy and this oneís a girl (especially so in an episode thatís the Christian creation myth), but Iím very glad Tezuka wasnít afraid to give us two lesbian foxes. I donít know if the other has a name, but she licks Roccoís hurt leg and they share a meal together ^_^

They even have a cute kiss (for just one frame!) at the end of the ep

That's really cool. Thanks so much for sharing something like this. I love hearing about obscure things, especially foxes. I'll need to be sure to look this up. I don't think it's Tezuka, but the most recent topic I posted was about an anime that's from that era overall. There's a lot of other obscure anime of the furry type that didn't manage to make it into proper circulation. Tetsunoshin never finished getting subtitled, for one. A bit older than Tezuka stuff but still.

Wansa kun is indeed Tezuka! I should've mentioned, I actually translate some of his mangas as a hobby. I started with Microid S (no furs in that one, but it does contain 2 inch tall bug people!!) and I'm currently translating Futureman Kaos, which features an alien dog I'll post about later. I haven't translated the chapter he debuts in yet, but he's a somewhat major character. You can find both of those on Mangadex.

Also, I learned that Rocco was actually cut out of the American dub. Sad, though I can see why, she's a comic relief character who ends up interrupting the main story a lot. She totally makes up for it by being cute though, imo.

Well torrent links etc are more than welcome around these parts. Especially for obscure stuff. Don't be afraid to provide direct linkage. And I'd imagine that person/group poking at Wansa would be happy to have chats too / have extra support.
