Not to be a sourpuss, but isn’t it pretty barbaric that Horo’s wearing a fox fur? I know they’re two different species, but it feels like that’d be the equivalent of me walking around with a necklace of dead babies around my neck. They’re both four legged and furry but I guess small foxes just aren’t in the same league of respect as house-sized wolves. This episode we’re also introduced to Dean/Deanna, who has to live in the slums since the Church outlaws alchemy/magic/anything that requires thinking outside the box. She’s pretty smart so hopefully she’ll show up in further episodes.
