Alright folks: I'm usually not one to publicly hate on something that I'm not personally into, even if I tend to get easily annoyed by things that are hyped very suddenly. For the first time in years however, something managed to create an exception to this rule: Pokémon Go. A thing I not only have to hear of no matter where I go on this internet, but because of which I must hear some of the most absurd and cancerous things that have to do with humanity as a whole. So we all know what time it is... it's rant time!

Apparently, in the never ending quest of companies to find dumber and dumber ideas with which to impress us commoners, there emerged a new concept: Video games that use the player's real life location and real world maps as part of the gameplay, ultimately requiring players to meet and interact in real life. For reasons beyond me, such a game immediately had the masses running for it like drug addicts for heroin... which isn't explicitly the reason why I hate it, though it's what leads to that reason; People not realizing there's a gap between a game and real life which you shouldn't be breaching. Unfortunately, as is always the case in human society, things end up being upside down and shattering the barrier of reasoning.

Up to this point, Pokémon Go has been involved in nearly every bad thing out there, and found itself in every place it shouldn't be: It's lead to the discovery of dead bodies, people being robbed at gunpoint, child predators kidnapping kids, and many more "wonderful" things. It's said that both criminals and the police are learning to play the game now, in order to use it in their retarded activities. Apparently the game has even been mentioned on television in the news, which makes everything even more chilling!

I will make my view clear, whether others share it or not: Video games are meant for people to enjoy in their privacy or with a specific group... whether that's in their home on a computer, in a gathering with friends via mobile phones, or even at an organized gaming convention. Real life on the other hand is where we all carry out our miserable lives, and interact with every atrocity and piece of crap the human mind is capable of conceiving. Please: Don't shit on both the gaming community or the Pokémon franchise, by creating an abomination of a game that makes real world dementia part of its very gameplay! Make your own applications for robbing and killing people, abducting and sexually harassing children, or catching the idiots who do so if you're on the law's side... we don't want our games and software dragged into your bullshit! Criminals don't need to play Pokémon games, the police doesn't need to know what Pokémon is, and the news should mind its own business and report on actual real events! Certain fandoms already have a bad rep, and the internet already has enough laws made by paranoid conservatives who don't understand how anything works. Everything has its place... let's keep it that way.

I could probably say more, but I don't want to further my hate on this game nor exaggerate with some of my views. In a nutshell, I find it absurd disgusting and ludicrous that a simple colorful game exceeds both its intended audience and its intended use this way, and needs to fall victim to the broken reasoning of the human mind. I'm once again left asking myself the question "what is safe from the vermin of the masses once they find out about its existence".

It's rare for me to post about specific games or films... especially commercial ones, and especially when those are made by the big corporations. I mostly went with the MLP-FiM hype when I became a brony in 2011, Minecraft when it brought us the voxel revolution, or poking my nose into recent intrigues like FNAF or Undertale. Since I enjoy watching an animated furry film every few months, Zootopia was definitely something I've set myself to look at! I managed to find my way to a HD version a while back... which I've finally watched yesterday, and might watch again tomorrow since I want to take a better look at it.

Now I knew from everything I've read that it's going to be good, and definitely didn't worry that I might be disappointed. I didn't however imagine it would be quite as amazing as I found it, nor could have easily guessed that until seeing it for myself to know why! My ultimate label for it was "revolutionary"... for not one but two separate reasons: Graphics as well as the story.

As those who watch me probably know, my main preoccupation nowadays is 3D rendering with Blender. One dilemma I've always had in CGI has been: How convincing and photorealistic can cartoon anatomy get, and can you have chibi (ish) characters that don't look uncanny or ignore obvious biological rules in a top quality setup? And how close to a pure feeling of lifelike can a CGI get to begin with? Zootopia definitely answered that last night... and the answer was, hell yes! As an animator, this is definitely something I will idolize for a long time and wish to learn from.

First of all, if you've watched Zootopia at anything less than 1080p @ 60 FPS on a HD screen, I suggest correcting that immediately! And yes, the FPS part matters... many underestimate what a huge difference frame rate can make, and go by the classic conception that 30 is good enough while more might make you dizzy or something. With that said, be on a lookout for details on everything in the world... especially materials that are capricious to do, such as cotton or candy not to mention fur: I for one found it remarkable to see so much attention given to almost every little detail! The general feel of the scene further tops that, with beautiful sunlit environments and lots of decorations.

Just to be clear now: I am not saying this is CGI of a quality the world has never seen! I don't watch a lot of animated films since few movies interest me, but I have no doubt there are a lot of them that have great visuals (like Iron Man or others in that genre). I'm mostly talking of achieving such realism in an environment set around anthro characters in a partially cartoony anatomy! It's one thing to achieve realism while trying to imitate things we see in everyday life (including scifi) and another to get this far with something unique. Of course realistic cartoons were also done pretty well by other series (like some stuff Pixar makes), just not by far to the same extent in my opinion.

As for the story: I can't say it's quite as rare in and of itself... especially coming from Disney which is good at this sort of thing, and known for addressing harsh or sensitive real-life subjects in their specific way. What mostly took me by surprise is how well they redid what they do best, this time in a modern setup of our days! Their most notable films were made in the 70's to 90's, which apart from having impressive stories did very well at mixing them with the cultures of those days. Honestly I didn't think they could do so again, and thought to myself "bah... they couldn't make something quite as legendary as Fox and the Hound for instance, in a modern world with today's culture or computers and smartphones". Nope... they've yet again adapted that epic something from those films!

Conclusion: Up to this point, Zootopia is the first film I noted with a 6/5 rating, from the niche category of stuff I've watched. While I'll never like Disney as a corporation, my love goes to the team who made this lovely film! It will be interesting to see if and when something in a similar fashion will pop up again... be it a Zootopia 2, or someone else realizing this hit a goldmine and trying to find their own with original ideas.
Mother Nashi (memorial) by MirceaKitsune
Mother Nashi (memorial)
On the day of 05 March 2016 (my 27th birthday), my beautiful mother Nashi (Jaqiefox) passed away. We aren't yet aware of the exact reasons, but suspect medical complications knowing her state. Myself and the rest of our family found out on 05 April. This is an old gift picture I made for her in 2010.

R.I.P. Nashi! Few people will know who this world has had and lost, or would believe me if I told them. The painful life you've had to endure on this world is finally over. Mine is not, and will be even more difficult without you. But it won't last forever either... somehow we'll find each other again just like we did here, only next time it will be better.

Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD9sT7…

Yep... a new version of Fluttershy's Visit has been released after all this time! People complained the original one was creepy because of the particle hair, so I removed that. Now it should no longer be slightly creepy at all!

The Leaker by MirceaKitsune
The Leaker
My parody of a somewhat famous drama in the furry fandom. Those familiar with it should easily get the references. I'm not going to put any exact names in this description, since I'm not looking to direct an angry mob toward those invoked.

In a nutshell: This is about a furry artist who decided to wage a mindless war against online art theft... going as far as doxing the real life addresses of suspected thieves, insulting everyone who dares even disagree with his approaches, and much more. I've recently been the victim of his rage as well, after politely attempting to critique his behavior in the comments. As my usual tribute to such events, I created this short comic... representing the way some artists seem to view the issue of others copying their art.

Romania
My name is Taoki, also known as Mircea Kitsune. I was born in 1989 and live in Bucharest in Romania. I'm a computer nerd, interested in gaming and everything open-source... currently a contributor to several FOSS game engines as well as a 3D animator. Since 2014 I've taken a stronger interest in science... particularly quantum physics, biohacking, and consciousness. I've been part of the furry fandom since 2005, which I joined as a consequence of being trans-species (otherkin).

For those interested in my non-physical identity: I identify myself as a "fox person" (intelligent bipedal fox). I'm a relatively young female kitsune, with red fur and black paws / forearms / forelegs, and crimson long hair. I have a short pointy muzzle, larger human-like eyes, and slightly thinner limbs despite being somewhat chubby. Other traits might vary.

While I try to be open and accepting of different opinions and beliefs, I prefer to avoid people who can't accept me for what I really am, while I won't tolerate anyone who harasses me over it. If you think that physical appearance alone defines one's true identity, or that people who are different are dangerous / sick / misguided, please leave me alone. I tend to be untrusting of "normal" people (most non-furs and non-kin) due to bad experiences, and apologize for any misjudgment I myself might carry. My dream is to create a world where everyone who's different can have their voice heard and their experiences shared, and the ability to live a normal life as who they truly are.

Your account is interesting. xD
I heard hate about you (Which is crap), and one guy compared you to Chris Chan (wtf..) even though your expression isn't wrong.

Anyway, nice to meet you, and those haters need to get over it. Haha
