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's media has never seen an official release outside of its native Japan. Our wiki, Japari Library, exists as a resource for the series's 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

Wild Bactrian CamelOriginal.jpg

The Wild Bactrian Camel is a species of camel found in southern Mongolia and northern China. While often confused for the Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) and sharing some superficial physical similarities, the wild Bactrian camel has in fact been genetically distinct for almost 2 million years.

Wild Bactrian camels, despite being adapted for surviving in the harsh Asian steppes in areas almost devoid of sustenance, are critically endangered largely due to human incursions such as hunting for meat. The Chinese and Mongolian governments have worked to conserve their population, and the Wild Camel Protection Foundation (the only charity of its kind) was set up to serve these interests.

Kemono Friends' Wild Bactrian Camel first appeared in the Nexon game as the sleepy younger sister of Dromedary. Much like Dromedary, her hair chignons represent the humps of the real-life animal, and their use in transport is interpreted as the two sisters spending their spare time traveling. Since Nexon, she has appeared in Pavilion, Festival and KF3, albeit with little backstory aside from her Friend Story in KF3.
