KemoV (Japanese: けもV, Hepburn: KemoV) is a Virtual YouTuber project announced in PPP ONLINE LIVE ~ Sekai Penguin no-chi Dai Kanshasai ~ on April 25th, 2021. Currently three members of the group are active on YouTube; each Virtual YouTuber also has a social media presence with a Twitter account.


Note: The "Generation" in KemoV usage differs from the term's usage in Kemono Friends (see Glossary#Generations), but corresponds to the common usage in the grouping of Virtual YouTubers, i.e., as batches where the members of a batch debut on the same time.
