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 Red Junglefowl is a chicken. Well, to be accurate, a chicken is really a Red Junglefowl. (Gallus Gallus Domesticus is a subspecies of Gallus Gallus) While the native range of the Red Junglefowl is Southeast Asia, they are also widespread on the Hawaiian islands, most notably the island of Kuai. However, the Hawaiian variants are the descendents of domestic chickens, who escaped captivity. When a male Red Junglefowl comes upon food in the presence of a female, he will do a mateship display called "Tidbitting", which ends when the female takes the food from the male. The Red Junglefowl bathes in dust, to make sure their wings don't get too oily. The dust falls off with the oil later. While the Red Junglefowl can fly, they almost only do so to reach their roosting areas in the treetops, where they are safe from predators.

Community Poll

Welcome, 2018! This month will bring the anniversary of the Kemono Friends Project's beloved anime. To think that a year ago, almost none of us knew what a Friend was, nor how much we'd come to appreciate the series. Judging by the poll results from December, the overwhelming majority of us became fans during 2017, and a sizeable portion joined the fanbase during the anime's airtime. Despite that, Kemono Friends has existed in several mediums, including a manga, original mobile RPG and the upcoming observation game Kemono Friends Pavilion.

Kicking off the new year (albeit a little late...sorry, the Head Librarian is travelling in the Hokkai Region right now!) will be a poll about those mediums. More specifically, which of their very different art styles do you like the best? Are you a fan of the classic Mine Yoshizaki art, or maybe the anime's 3D models have totally won you over? How about Furai's manga, or the upcoming Pavilion with its chibi art? Let us know!
