Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons

Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.

Pros

  • It uses the same texture maps as the M4 Bakemono head. This means you can use skins, eyes, and eyelashes made for Bekemono, too. You can also use any eye or eyelash textures that are made for any M3 or M4 head.
  • Utilizator products are very mod friendly. If you enjoy making your own things for your head this may be a great choice for you.

Neutral Notes

  • M4 Kitsune is a really cute mix of animal and anime, giving it a unique look that suits a variety of human/animal hybrid avatars.
  • This head is a stylized head. While it’s wonderful for those going for an anime look, you won’t be getting as many third party options like you can for some of the more traditional heads. That said, the M4 line is one of the most popular for anime avatars and you can still find a good amount of products.
  • * I did note that this has the Universal Neck Standard to avoid neck seams. This is true mostly when using BOM and a skin designed to be used with your head and body specifically. When you are using the applier version you’re more likely to notice a seam. You may still see a seam regardless if you have different shines on your mesh parts.

Cons

  • M4 Kitsune is not natively a BOM head. That said, you can get a kit to make it BOM if you like some of the BOM products made for the head. You can find the kit at the Utilizator store. (When you teleport to the sim you’ll arrive in a subway car. To get to the store just exit on your left, go up the escalator, and follow the road while hanging left. Utilizator will be the first store on the left, and the BOM kits are in a pile in the left side of the store.)
  • There is no demo. Make sure this style is something you’re interested in before purchasing!
