She is a 25-year-old Scorpio with Type A blood.

Then she gets mad. Really mad. Her eyes start to bleed


I can only imagine the blood type is there in case you need to give her a transfusion because of all the eye bleeding.

Sanrio seems to have hit a dark phase recently. If it's not an egg yolk with debilitating depression it's a red panda office worker with anger problems.

Sounds like they're trying to market the new character to furries.  Most furries like heavy metal, drink too much, like red pandas and work in IT...

If you were female and had to take the train in to work in Japan, youd be angry too. There are some documentary videos online about it.

If you think that's all of it, you're mistaken.
If you think that all furries hold everything in furry to the same degree or importance, you're mistaken.

I'll be the first to admit that sexual aspects of furry are pretty big, but a significant chunk don't focus on it.

I certainly don't. I mean, I'm into it, but Im into the comics and stories moreso.

It is literally no secret that furries are a sexual subculture.  Trying to deny it is pretty silly.  I get that you don't want to be associated with something you view as deviant just because you like aspects of the subculture, but  that's like saying Steampunk isn't really about gears and goggles, it's about belt buckles and top hats.  But also gears and goggles.

I'm not trying to be insulting.  You seem to want to be insulted.  I'm glad you and your commune of furry friends are not into it on a sexual level at all (a statement I very much doubt, but hey, it's possible), but you do realize there's a community outside of you, right?  I'm not saying that every furry beats off to the family dog.  I'm saying that denying the existence and prevalence of furry "porn" for lack of a better word is ridiculous.  Wake up and smell the musk, Baloo!

I know how uninteresting that is.  But... I dunno, I just wanted to point it out.  A tiny voice asking to be allowed one tiny thing that doesn't go all mainstream and get pigeonholed and appropriated by week boos and hipsters.  Is it too much to ask?

No kidding. Pretty much every major anime character has a blood type noted in their biography. Some Japanese even discriminate against people with certain blood types, turning them down for jobs, and worse.

One of the best jokes about it was in an anime (Medaka Box) where every character had blood type AB.

I would say "I always thought that was weird", but we're talking about Japan here. The list of things I don't think are weird is shorter than a 12 year old anime girl's skirt.

While that may be true, the core thing being that trolls have been saying the same stuff with decreasing basis in truth and increasing unoriginality for 20 years trying to be funny.  Get a new schtick or go home.

We're sorry you have a really weird hobby that's been hijacked by deviants.  I'll grant you that it must be old hearing about it.  Being a non-sexual Furry must be like being the dude that was KILLING it with the Charlie Chaplin moustache until Hitler came along and farked it all up.

I'm still of the opinion that even 20 years ago, the sexual aspects of the fandom are generally overstated.  Compare to people conflating all anime with hentai.

This is probably the least sexualized thing on Japanese tv these days.
