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.


Or Playbo- Oh wait, that's American.


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.


I never said Playboy was the influence on Taguel but I'm pretty sure it was on Akira Toriyama (Bulma in DB, DQ in general,) which I'm pretty sure is the influence on Japan today, so I will say it now.

Still, the primary reason for my post was to point out Bunnygirl fetishes aren't exclusive to Japan. I'm 99% sure fetish is influenced by culture, not dictated by race.

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.


Those definitions are arguable.

Besides, it's not just a "few" references. According to the characters, there are Taguel lions, wolves, ravens, hawks and herons (did they mention cats? I can't remember that one). That's way too specific to not mean anything.

When all of the others have used fairly predictable animals(save for maybe the herons), A rabbit shapeshifter really came out of left field, but I gotta say, I like it. Panne is cool. Bunnies aren't to be trifled with. They'll gnaw a knights jugular faster than he can say 'Nee!'.
