Why taguel?

Taguel and Laguz are implied to have similar origins or a common ancestor or however the f*** it works in FEland. I guess both words look like they could have evolved from a common route as well. I wonder what Taguel/Laguz is in proto-Archaneo-Tellian.

Bunny girls are a common fetish in Japan, so that's probably why.

I mean look at the bunny girl race in the Ivalice games.

It's quite a shame that Panne is better than every single laguz, bar Tibarn.

Tanguels>>>>>>>Laguz.


Frankly, the laguz are worse than every "beast" unit in every other game.

How about a Tortoise, or a Giraffe even. Groundhog? Oooh, a badger?

I dont think Laguz and Taguel/Manakete are related at all, The game might have a Few References, but they're mostly for fun.

Laguz are Humans that can Transform into beasts
Taguel/Manakete are Beasts that sealed their power into stones and took the form of humans.

What makes you think there was any american influence that went into the game design? That there exists a bunny girl fetish in America (that was more prevalent in the 70s than today) has nothing to do with the bunny girl fetish that continues to exist in Japan.
