What is Kemono Friends?

Kemono Friends, also known as KemoFure, is a Japanese multimedia franchise created by Mine Yoshizaki, that focuses on the adventures of anthropomorphized animal girls known simply as Friends. It began as a 2015 mobile game but has expanded into a manga, stage play and wildly successful 2017 anime with multiple new projects planned for the future. While it is a relatively new IP, the franchise has succeeded in making a name for itself on its path to becoming a "series that will last 100 years".

The universe of Kemono Friends, contrary to its innocent appearance, is expansive and complex. It boasts a cast of over 400 characters as well as an intricate and puzzling backstory. What's more, much of the series' media has never seen an official release outside of its native Japan. Our wiki, Japari Library, exists as a resource for the series' English-speaking fanbase. It features translations, detailed analyses of the franchise's lore, and information on Friends and the real creatures from which they came.

Friend of the Week

The African Wild Dog, also known as the Painted Wolf, is a Canid (dog-like animal) native to Sub-Saharan Africa. The African Wild Dog is the last living species of Lycaon, a genus of Canid highly specialized for running and a hypercarnivorous diet (More than 70% meat). A highly social animal, the African Wild Dog forms packs of up to thirty. The African Wild Dog is unusual among social animals in that the males remain with the pack while the females split off on their own. Packs of African Wild Dog are very good at hunting medium-sized Antelope, the hunt lasting ten to sixty minutes at speeds of up to 66 km/h. During this time, the African Wild Dogs will repeatedly nip and bite at the legs and belly of their prey until it becomes unable to run. A very fast eater, a pack of African Wild Dogs can consume a Gazelle in under fifteen minutes.

Community Poll

2018 is off to a good start with our largest poll ever! How'd that happen when the poll got put up so late, anyway? The poll results indicate that the "main" style of Kemono Friends' art, the illustrations drawn for every Friend by Mine Yoshizaki, are the most popular with our readers. With less than half of the votes that went to Mine's art, the 3D models featured in the Kemono Friends anime come next in line. Furai's manga art, as well as the chibi style of the newly-released Kemono Friends Pavilion trailed behind both, with 13 and 9 votes respectively. I guess you can't beat the original!

This month's poll is, as I'm sure many of you expected, all about Kemono Friends Pavilion, which was released at the end of January. How are you liking it so far? We're curious as to what aspect of the game (if any!) our readers like the most.
