Welcome. A lot of people call Gijinkas Kemonomimi and often wrongly. Since I've had a human persona for a long time many suggested I try that out but I'm the kinda person who doesn't like to do things half way. To me if I'm a goat then I'm not a human. Although I suppose it's easier for me with my simplistic art style. Everything kinda looks similar anyway. I'd be interested to know what level you define your character as. Is it Damekko Doubutsu level or more like a Kitsune Youkai? Exactly how much of the animal's personality carries forward too, not just appearance. It's an interesting concept, less of anthropomorphization where animals are given human characteristics and more bestization where humans are given animal traits. I think Ika Musume is the best example I've seen especially the series where she's tiny. It's totally adorable.
Well, my gijinkas usually have a kenomomimi style, but this is their only form and even if they have a human caracter, they share some little details from the pokemon they represent. For instance, my ninetales is human and have her very own caracter which is kind of always happy and love to socialyze. She do not care that people touch her tails IF they ask first and pay attention to not squeeze them. Her human behavior say that she does not really have any instinct so she easily trust and try to befriend anybody. BUT, as I theorized on ninetales, females tend to hate eachothers since the most attractive (with the fluffiests tails) will get more males, so she's having some difficulies to approach other females ninetales since she does not understand why they are all so mean the her. Her human part also do not like them since her own mother was mean to her, so it's also playing in this game of natural behavior from her ninetale conterpart.
To conclude, I think that the gijinkas I do have between 85 and 95% of human behavior and 15 to 5 % oh pokemon-like behavior.
Also, my gijinkas can use attacks or talents, but since they are for the most part human, they do not use them for battles like pokemons. They tend to use them more for a casual life (a bit like Boku no hero academia were the population have powers but they use them as less as possible)
Um I think this is all XD
