How to Say "Furry" in Japanese

Something which is "furry," the adjective, is kedarake 毛だらけ, literally "full of fur."

The term for furry characters in manga and anime and anthropomorphic characters based on animals is kemono ケモノ. Generally, the term "beast ears," kemonomimi 獣耳 is associated with characters that only feature animal ears.

The term kemono also refers to furry art in general.

Finally, a furry in Japanese, as in someone who likes furry art, is called a kemonaa ケモナー, which would be a kemono-er, a kemoner, kemoneer, or something like that.
