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

Members

KemoV currently has 4 generations consisting of 5 members. "Generation" in KemoV usage differs from the term's usage in Kemono Friends (see Glossary#Generations). It corresponds to the common usage in the grouping of Virtual YouTubers, i.e. as batches where the members of a batch debut at the same time.

First Generation

This consists of two Virtual YouTubers whose debut was announced simultaneously with the start of the KemoV project. Their first collaborative livestream took place at 22:00 JST on April 26th, 2021, on African Penguin's YouTube channel. 3D models, with full-body motion capture technology, was used employed in the first livestream. Afterwards, regular livestreams continued to feature the 3D models from the torso up.
