For all you Furry Gamers. ( game is rated 18+)

Morenatsu: A Gamers Perspective

Morenatsu, The name is something of a vague assumption to most within the fandom. Few people actually know what the name means. Is it a game? Is it a manga? What exactly is Morenatsu. I'll be honest, it could be classified as both, it just depends on how you choose to define it. The official definition of Morenatsu is a 'visual novel'. It follows the same pattern as any other Japanese 'dating sim' style game. You are a main character tasked with the option to choose one of many different potential interests. Of the numerous characters in this game, and there are actually 8 potential routes to choose and 9 possible partners to be made. The mains character has the ability to be a custom name, allowing the player to get a more ' personal' experience. But for sake of argument we will use the stock name that the game gives us, Hiroyuki.

The potential routes to be played are as follows: Kouya Aotsuki, Shin Kuroi, Torahiko Ooshima, Shun Kodori, Juuichi Mikazuki, Tatsuki Midoriya, Soutarou Touno, and Kyouji Takahara.

The Route we will be discussing will be that of the character Kouya Aotsuki. This character is often mistaken as a wolf, mostly due to his fur pattern. Kouya is actually a husky. Kouya is the most sexually experianced of any of the available characters and the only one to be considered 100% dominant. This is possibly due to his Bisexual nature. Kouya and shun ( Shun-Kun) seem to have a very interesting realtionship, Almost brotherly with an implied romantic relationship having happened.

(as of today, this game is still being patched and updated so there is always new things being released. Please look up MTL Project on google and look for zetaboards. Or

The basis of the story in this game is that the main character has returned to his home town of waterfront village for a one month summer vacation during the month of august. Upon arriving in the town by bus you are greeted first by Torahiko, who informs you of a welcome party being thrown for your return by all of your friends. It is here that you end up meeting the majority of the cast one by one and learn of their exploits during your five year absence from the village. As this is a visual novel dating sim, you are tasked with a number of choices during the course of any route you choose. The first major choice that you get to make is who you should sit by at the dinner table. This ultimately chooses which route you start to play depending on who you sit next to at the beginning, some stories wont be available until you beat others and so on. ( update: beating a story simply unlocks artwork and bios and post story snippits. Routes are still being translated and patched. As of 2 months ago shin/juuichi have been finished as well and fully translated)
The amount of detail and development that went into the overall story writing of this game is very deep. As many of you I am sure have figured out, and if not you shall know now, this game is originally a japan only title. There has now officially been an English patch that offers a complete translation and patch over for the entire game. Which allows us here in the west to fully enjoy one of the better furry based visual novel dating games out there. There are others but none that can match the quality and level of detail that was put into this title. All of the art was originally done by a furry artist by the name of Gammy-G. Then it was picked up by a Japanese development team and offered as a freeware game. Though despite this level of 'popularity' there is surprisingly few people who actually know what this game is. Though most people can recognize a good number of the characters and tell you where they are from. That being said very few actually know that Morenatsu is a visual novel style game.

This game overall, has many similarities between the stories. Though i'll admit I have only played two of the possible eight story lines. The character of kouya, a husky, was very well written and detailed. In my personal opinion, the story writing between kouya and shun, the other character story I played, is markedly different. Kouya is very deep and detailed and emotional. The interactions between hiroyuki and kouya is very intriguing and allows the player to be drawn into the scenario as a whole.

Shun, on the otherhand, is a year younger than our main character. The only problem I had with this storyline compared to kouya is that, although shun is a year younger, he is drawn as a child and his personality makes you think he is even younger than that. Thus the player must make many moral choices involving the relationship and interaction between shun and hiroyuki.

The constant conflict with the main character is a problem I feel should have been better developed. I like the premise of the story but I feel that they just tossed the story line for shun together as a last ditch effort to have something to show for the game. It doesn't feel like it was THAT well developed. But overall, it is well written and satisfying to say the least.

Overall, I would have to give this game a recommendation to anyone interested in playing it or into the visual novel type game. Though as stated, this game is an adult rated title and one must be of legal age to play this. The art style is very well done, and the writing in the storylines is well thought-out over all.

I would have to say I am certainly a fan. But you can make your own decisions if you choose to download and check this game out. A word of warning though. This game is difficult to track down at first. Happy hunting to all of you fuzzy ones. Cheers!~

A very special interview.

This week In FurMedia we are going to showcase a very special Fursuiter from Australia. This fursuiter has only recently acquired their completed suit and in a very short time has become quite the prominent figure within their local community as well as showing support to many fellow suiters world wide. They have become an inspiration to what a fursuiter can do to help everyday society as well as the fandom over all. I am talking of course of Kidsune Kirax, The lovable black and blue fox from Queensland Australia. He has been involved with many escapades befitting any fursuiter, but has also been an active promoter and lent a helpful paw to his local charities.  

Below is the Interview I managed to get with the one and only Kidsune. I hope to show the fandom just how adorable and fun this fox can be. I hope you enjoy!

Zennith Caitiff: So, First off i would like to say good morning/evening. Id like to start by introducing myself. My name is Zennith and i am a Content Creator/ Journalist at FurMedia. its a pleasure to speak with you.

Kidsune: And nice to meet you, the pleasure is all mine!

Zennith Caitiff: Well, I am certainly glad to hear that. OK, so First question. You are a fox, in the interest of Curiosity, What made you choose that species as your specific fursona?

Kidsune: Well, to make an overly long story short, it was a combination of aesthetics, personality, and demeanor shared between myself and foxes, I suppose. Not really a 'fox in a human's body' kind of person, but more of an alter-ego, I suppose

Zennith Caitiff: That’s actually kinda cool, I haven’t heard that very often. Though I, myself feel the same way about my own fursona(s). So I have to ask, Where did the design for your fursona come from? What inspired you to choose the colors/patterns that you chose?

Kidsune: Well, originally, waaay back when, I was a plain old red fox. In comes the world of Second Life, though, and I pretty quickly expanded my creative options to something more extravagant, which was black and pink at the time, but the pink soon wore off on me, and eventually settled with my cyan, which I think really brings up my character in different ways

Zennith Caitiff: Sweet. Well we have covered the development of kidsune as a fursona. Now lets delve into Kidsunes 'human' so to speak if only for just a moment. heh, how long have you been active within the fandom?

Kidsune: That's a tough one. Depends on what you call active, I suppose. I guess I officially found the fandom when I discovered VCL( I believe), which would've been way back in... 2002 I believe, though I was always fond of the whole idea since I can remember. I really started growing active in local communities in 2007, though.

Zennith Caitiff: So say going on 11 years now that you’ve been involved with the fandom?

Kidsune: Easily, yeah

Zennith Caitiff: Awesome. So this leads to a pretty obvious follow up, What actually inspired you to become a furry?

Kidsune: The boring-ness of the human body is a main point, I suppose!
Kidsune: Always strived for something more interesting and unique

Zennith Caitiff: Alright, That’s a fair enough answer. I think we can all relate to that on some level. hehe. So since 2002, you have found yourself as a furry. When people hear the name "Kidsune Kirax" what do you think they remember you for?

Kidsune: That's hard to say, I'm not really sure. Most likely from when I played Second Life, as that's where I got my last name from. More recently, would definitely be from my fursuit.

Zennith Caitiff: I would certainly have to agree! I love your fursuit it is totally adorable.

Kidsune: Thank you~

Zennith Caitiff: Your most welcome, So if anyone were to have been watching your facebook page lately. they would have noticed your rather spirited involvement with a local charity organization there in your local community. Tell us a bit about that, what made you choose to get involved with that specific charity?

Kidsune: Well, I found about the Million Paws Walk taking place through facebook via a friend of mine, and heard that a few others have done the walk in fursuit before, and I though 'What better way to both help our 4 legged friends, and get exposure about the positive side of the community?'

Kidsune: So I talked to some other local friends of mine who got interested in walking in fursuit as well, and we ended up with our team, Paws for Effect! So far we've raised $1780, which is really amazing!

Zennith Caitiff: That’s fantastic! and what exactly does the million paws walk do?

Kidsune: It's a fundraiser for the RSPCA, Australia's animal welfare organization, that happens every year. It's a walk around a park that happens in hundreds of locations all over the country

Zennith Caitiff: That’s a fantastic cause to get involved with. And I can say I certainly enjoyed all your pictures in support of the cause. So do you have any other plans in the works?

Kidsune: I do have some flyers that our team will be handing out during the walk, for people who want to donate after-wards

Zennith Caitiff: So it would be safe to assume your really dedicated to this cause then huh?

Kidsune: Yeah, I've put a fair bit of effort into it

Zennith Caitiff: That’s certainly good to hear. I hope that in some way we can all get involved on some level with our own local SPCA organizations. hehe. So, Would you consider this your greatest accomplishment to date then?

Kidsune: Probably not the greatest, but it's pretty close. I don't really have a greatest achievement, since it's all relative to the beholder

Zennith Caitiff: Well, What would you consider to be your greatest achievement? in your own opinion?

Kidsune: Probably my overall involvement in our local fur-con, Riv Fur. With all the graphic design, photography, cinematography and promotional work I've done.

Zennith Caitiff: Ah, so the fox is a creative sort eh? What sort of talents do you have?

Kidsune: I dabble in photography and cinematography a fair bit, as well as special effects and design.

Zennith Caitiff: That’s awesome! I’m a writer myself lol, if it wasn’t obvious. So with these talents, I'm sure that like any artist, you have your 'pet peeves' so to speak. What would you say would be your biggest pet peeve?

Kidsune: Bad editing. Whether it's in video or photos, it just makes me visibly cringe.

Zennith Caitiff: That’s pretty fair. I have a similar eye for stuff like that. Lol. So, I think we've pretty much covered it. the audience should have a good idea of the fox behind the fox so to speak. hahaha. is there anything else you would like to tell us that we may not know? perhaps any future developments or events after the Million Paws Walk?

Kidsune: I have a few more promotional videos coming out soon for Riv Fur, so keep your eyes peeled on my facebook or the website, :3

Zennith Caitiff: Fantastic, As always its been a pleasure to talk to you Kidsune, I will certainly keep my eyes and ears perked for any new developments, and who knows, we may end up doing this again in the future :3.

Kidsune: Great! Thanks for the chat ^_^

So, There you have it folks. Straight from the muzzle, Literally. I for one was very happy to have gotten the opportunity to learn more about this adorable fox and his amazing work helping his local charities and animal shelters.
