when telling time, to say "half past" you use ~ji. So maybe Kitsune-ji for half past fox lol. As for names, try http://japanese.about.com/bljapanesename.htm. it gives you a good list. good luck on the comic and be sure to send me a copy!:DB)

No, half past X is X-ji han. -ji is the hour counter, han is half. I'd say half-fox would be han-kitsune and half-cat would be han-neko (going by Inuyasha, who is "hanyou", "half-youkai". "Defeated/vanquished/loser" is "haisha"; "underdog/loser" is "makeinu"; "loser/owner of a lost article" is "otoshinui". "You are crazy" could be "anata no atama ga hen desu."

maybe you should consider not to use so many japanse words for your story or what ever if you simply dont know them

but looser may be 敗者 or 負け犬 and wolf is 狼 ;p

Close, it's baka (but, that wouldn't go for "loser", because you can be an idiot but win a race).
