I’m sure there are some of you out there who read this blog who still have no idea what Kitsune Noir means. Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox, and Noir is the french word for black, so if you put them the other way around you get Black Fox. Up until now though, I didn’t realize there were such things as black foxes, that was until my buddy Max sent me this article from The Telegraph titled, “‘Unlucky’ rare black fox spotted in Britain.”
Supposedly in the medieval times (read: stupid times) people thought that the black fox was a bad omen, which is ridiculous, look how cute that little guy is! They’re also rather rare in England, which is what the article is mainly about, as they were hunted near extinction for their pelts. Scary enough, the photo above was taken in a graveyard (aka eating the flesh of dead bodies, duh) but that the man was able to get rather close to it, so it doesn’t eat living people… yet.
Personally I’m quite proud to have the black fox as my mascot! Viva la Kitsune Noir!
