The Globe and Mail’s Rob Ferguson examines the iconography of anime, and the trends in fandom that have developed over the past decade.
Anime icons for a “new type of fan”1.
A new type.
Furry fandom was born in the 1990s.
It’s a movement, as you might expect, that began with an anime, an internet meme, and a pop culture obsession that’s been alive since 2000.
In the early 2000s, fandom began to emerge as an identity in pop culture.
Its origins were in a video game called Pokemon Go, which allowed people to catch, train, and battle other players.
As a result, there were many furry fans who felt like they were part of a unique subculture.
The fandom’s popularity and the fact that it was accessible to young people was also important.
“The idea of fandom was that it’s a place where kids can play and have fun and have a good time,” said Jason F. Brown, a professor at Ohio State University’s department of communications.
And, he added, “You don’t see that in mainstream pop culture, which tends to be focused on people who are older and wealthy.”
For some, the fandom came about as a reaction to a change in media, and was fuelled by a desire to connect with people of a different species.
For many, fandom was also a way of expressing a connection to another person in a very intimate way.
That, said Brown, meant that it had a “very unique and unique kind of appeal.”
Furries were also often drawn to the character of Arakawa Kazuya, who appears in many popular anime, manga, and video games.
They were also attracted to the concept of fan fiction, which was also popular at the time.
One of the most popular fan fictions in the late 1990s was called The Tale of Two Cats, which tells the story of a cat who falls in love with a cat.
Fans of anime and manga began to take part in fandom in the early years of the 2000s.
The first furry fandom event was held in 1996, at the convention Expo X in San Diego, which drew about 200 fans, according to Brown.
When fans began to travel abroad for conventions and conventions grew in size, so did fandom.
At the 2004 Tokyo International Anime Convention, over 10,000 fans were in attendance.
There were several more furry conventions, including a 2006 convention in Japan.
Even more significant, anime fandom developed its own language, as fans began writing fan fic and fan art.
By 2006, there was a subreddit, Anime_Lover, that was devoted to writing fanfic.
Now, fandom is much more popular than ever.
According to Brown, fandom has “nearly tripled every year since 2005.”
According the Furries For Humanity website, about 300,000 people have joined a fandom, and more than 40,000 conventions have taken place.
So, what are furry fandom’s goals?
“To create a world where everyone can love and be loved and have the right to be loved,” said Brown.
“We want to create a fandom where everyone has a right to belong and is welcome.”
What does fandom look like in Canada?
Fans often look to Canada for inspiration, but their fandom has also become much more global.
Canadian fandom has seen a huge growth over the years.
Canada has the largest number of furries worldwide, according a 2010 survey by the Furfurry Society of Canada.
Most of the fandom comes from North America, with the most represented being the United States.
Many Canadians identify as furries, but there are also many people in Canada who identify as “other.”
There are several different types of fandom in Canada, including anime, comic books, and manga.
However, it’s the comic books that have the most fandom, with a total of about 1.2 million fans.
Pop culture fandom is often the first to show up at conventions, and there are several conventions held every year.
This year, there are about 2,500 in Canada.
This includes a convention in Ottawa, which has a capacity of about 25,000.
Over 500,000 of the furry fans in Canada are female.
While there are many conventions, the biggest ones tend to be held at the Ottawa Convention Centre, which is the largest convention centre in the country.
More than 30,000 furries attended the Ottawa convention last year, according the Furry Society of the United Kingdom.
During the convention, attendees will be able to meet with fans, play video games, eat sushi, and get to know each other.
Despite the popularity of fandom, there’s a stigma attached to it.
People have been told that their fandom is “boring,” “bor
