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 Bengal Tiger is among the most beautiful animals and largest wild cats in the world. They're native to the forests and mangroves of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan. Their fur is orange with black stripes and their belly is white. They can reach up to 320 kilograms of weight and a head to body length of over three meters.

Tigers are solitary cats with established home ranges. The home range of a male may be around 200 km² and contain multiple much smaller home ranges of females he mates with and her cubs. Tigers often fight to take over another tigers home range or leave their home range for their now adult cub. Mating may occur year-round but most births take place in December and April. The one to four newborn cubs suckle for around 3-6 months of age after which they follow their mother on her hunts and slowly start taking part in them. Once they reach 2-3 years of age, the young will leave their mothers side and establish a home range of their own

Apart from their usual Orange with black stripes colourations, there's two more, common colourations; the White Tiger, which is white with black stripes and the Golden Tabby Tiger which has much paler stripes than usual as a result of inbreeding. As the largest predator in their habitat, Tigers preferably hunt the largest prey, such as the Gaur, boars and deer. On rare occasions, they will also attack Elephants, Rhinos, snakes and humans.

The biggest threat to tiger populations are humans. Expanding our territory has pushed tiger populations into unpreferred habitats. The Tigers push back into human settlements where livestock as prey is abundant and habitat is more suitable for reproduction. They're also threatened through illegal poaching, as their skins and fur are very valuable and different body parts are used in traditional medicine. Tigers have also been killed in revenge by owners of livestock or out of fear due to repeated conflicts. Multiple conservation efforts are in place in an attempt to save tiger populations all over their range.

The Bengal Tiger of Kemono Friends appears in the Nexon Game, Festival and is currently the latest addition to Pavilion. She's wearing a red plaid skirt and tie, a white shirt, and long gloves and stocking in tiger-colouration. Her shoulder-long hair is orange with black stripes and white colour from the ears down. She is confident in her strength and doesn't like anyone coming too close to her. She often spars with Brown Bear and in her Unique Behaviour in Pavilion she breaks a stack of tiles karate-style. The two colour variations, the White Tiger and Golden Tabby Tiger, also appear in Kemono Friends as separate Friends.

Information is limited, but this is a highly-anticipated release and there is much to be excited for in the next major story update of the KemoFure franchise.
