This series is awesome. Excellent storywriting, interesting characters and moral dillemas. I wish there were more series as such.

 

wait, wut?? can you explain, please.

Country origin.

Grey wolf=North America/Eurasia

Dwarf rabbit=Netherlands

Legosi you are so precious.... 

I think you misread Haru's character.

 

She's not "sexually dominant" and looking for "an opportunity to get laid". It's more like, the reverse. She "offers" herself because it's her way of survival. It's more the males come to her and she accepts them, but she doesn't look for them.

 

Remember the scene where Legosi almost eats her because of his instinct? She was paralyzed. She's a weak and tiny rabbit, with nothing special for her and she's very conscious of her status as a prey. Much like Legosi fights his predator side, she fights her prey side. Their encounter was a full demonstration of this. She almost wanted to be eaten and he almost ate her.

 

She didn't want to "get laid with a carnivore". She just followed her usual pattern of letting the males have their way with her, because it's the path of least resistance. She misread Legosi as a standard male wanting to "prey" on her and by accepting it, she protects herself. She doesn't really care about the particulars of the guys she sleeps with.

 

That's this prey quality that attracts both Legosi and Louis.

 

Louis, because she makes him feel more predatory.

 

Legosi, because she's everything he's not : nobody is scared of her or uncomfortable around her.

 

That's why I think a relationship between Legosi and Haru could benefit both of them, because he'd want to protect her and she'd make him sublimate his predatory instincts into love.

 

Yeah, you're definitely right. I binge read through this in one day and now reading again the key appearances she has, you are right on the money. I definitely missed some aspects about her character and forgot the part that was her's and Legosi's first encounter where she almost died. :)

 

Guess that's a downside to getting hooked and binging on something without giving it enough time to really digest the story and its characters.

She's so talonted. Glad her self-esteem could recooperate in the end [/late]

To answer your questions:

Spoiler

 

Fun thing how all the chapter was about the benefits of a good free-range egg, goddammit they are tasty.

 

On the other hand, Legosi and Bill basically fucked up the play until Louis stepped into to save everybody. Under any situation, what he did was right. He absolutely should be berating them for their massive fuck up, and realizing that lying that it was all planned saves everybody's face. The actors, himself, **and** the audience as well. Being honest in that situation would not be "good", just like lying about the situation doesn't neecessarily make him "bad". White lies to smooth over society's rough edges are a fact of life.

 

Him having sex with the rabbit only presents him as an opposition to Legosi in that relationship, but that doesn't make him evil either. There's not enough to say anything here other than "I don't like that dude".

Where are you from where that's a local term?

 

And what did he do that was so rotten?

 

The rabbit scene... what did he do that was so bad? Have sex?

I highly appreciate stuff like the signs on the walls telling small animals to stay near the walls when walking around lest they accidentally be stepped on. It's the little unstated things that give this manga such great atmosphere.

Indeed. That is what greatly differs this manga from generic furrycrap, where every character can be replaced by human, and nothing would be different.

Nobody seem to have said this, so have at thee:

 

That chapter was EGGSCELLENT.

You're all dead to me.

Looks like someone can't take a yoke.

the hen chapter was pretty interesting

 

20 chapters in

Nobody has brought up the murder that started this manga

cause if they brought up it takes the focus in the chapter, and the series is going okay so the author is extending the world building.

 

Tall american boy meets short dutch girl in a japanese school. The chapter.

wait, wut?? can you explain, please.

Yup, best girl has arrived. I hope the author doesn't chicken out on going through with this ship.

Boo.

Daaawwwwwww That chicken's a good egg.

Booooooo!

It took me a while to notice Legom's female. She looks rather hard-boiled.

This is such a wholesome chapter, I can't stop grinning while reading this chapter mmm...

Man, the relationship between Legosi and Haru is gonna be pretty interesting, considering Legosi is the seemingly meek, large wolf who cannot deal with girls, and Haru is the tiny but assertive and sexually dominant bunny. It's a nice set-up, specially considering Legosi has a pretty big crush on her and she apparently only saw him as an opportunity to get laid with a carnivore.

We have a local term for people like Louis: "a smiling fa**ot", that means someone who keeps a pristine public image of always smiling, but to the people in his circle, he is a disgusting person that uses any rotten mean to keep them in his grasp in order to avoid ruining his public image (sound a lot like the description of a politician, but has a nastier espectrum when you say it in chilean-spanish) . The rabbit scene is just another grain of sand in his beach.

Btw, my apologies if someone felt offended for that word, we've grown more accustomed to use for this kind of rotten people than as pejorative to the LBGT.

 

While I can't see Louis as a good person he has some admirable qualities. He puts everything on the line for his ultimate goal, yes he uses other people, but he is just as willing to sacrifice his own wellbeing for the sake of what he intends to do. He is not nice, and he is not a good person, but I can admire his dedication to his ideals and goals, if nothing else.

At least if it does happen, we can suspect fowl play at work!
 
On a side note, since it seems to be cropping up, I'll throw in my two cents as well and assert that hens actually do have combs. One of my neighbors built a coop for their farm-crazy daughter a few years ago, and about every other month they're out of town and I'll volunteer to look after them. Good news is, they don't crow so I'm not in for a rude awakening unless one escapes the pen and becomes another neighbor's dog food. :P
 
Now, for some breeds the hen's comb is tiny to nonexistent (Cornish chickens come to mind), but for others (like Andalusians and Minorcas, both which the neighbors are raising) they can be a bit showier, even if it's still nothing compared to a rooster's; I've seen quite a few that are even larger than their own heads. If that all sounds like poppycock (as anecdotal evidence alone, admittedly, can), I'd humbly recommend looking at this image for a comparison of Minorca chickens, as an example, between the roosters and hens.

Seriously, the author/artist doesn't know that hens don't have combs (the fleshy red protrusion on the top of rosters) I suppose since these are half human, maybe also in the way that there is less of a difference between the genders in humans versus most other species. Or maybe again, that the author didn't know.

Some hens do have combs, it just depends on the breed/variety of chicken. The Leghorn breed has combs on both sexes, this is the breed used most commonly for commercial egg production world wide.

That
That girl was outright perfect.

I'm gonna be one happy gal if we keep having these arcs interspersed with cute world building chapters. There's something very fulfilling about it.

reminds me a lot of how centaurs worries was written. one story chapter and one world building chapter

Hens don't have a comb.

A very interesting filler chapter
