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

Northern White-Faced OwlOriginal.jpg

Northern White-Faced Owls, also known as "Transformer owls" are small owls belonging to the Scops owl family. They grow to around 30cm in height at adulthood. (すごーい!) Their feathers consist of a white base with minor grey and black accents creating an illusive look. Around their beaks are small long feathers, giving them an appearance of a moustache. (そうなのー!?) Their colours are accented well by their very large and bright orange eyes.

Northern White-Faced Owls are found in a band stretching across Africa from the Equator to the Sahara Desert. The owls defense mechanism is the most intriguing. They can contort their bodies and feathers to give themselves both a large appearance, to ward off slightly larger threats, and a slim, elongated appearance to act as camouflage. (ぜんぜん分からん)

Females lay between 2-4 eggs, entering a 30 day incubation shared by both parents. The chicks will become adventurous around 4 weeks, and learn to fly shortly after.(たのしー!) The owls are strictly nocturnal, using their enhanced hearing, height, and silent flight to hunt other animals on the ground. In some cases, they will prey upon animals larger than themselves. (すごーい!) Did you know a group of owls is called a "Parliament" or a "Wisdom"?

The Kemono Friends Northern White-Faced Owl has appeared in all major media projects, including Season 2. She has short steely-grey hair with darker tones on the top of her head and on her side bangs. Furthering detailing's in her hair represent her real life counterpart, including Ear tuffs and Wings. Her tail is a striped grey and dark grey pattern. She wears a white buttoned coat with a fur-like collar, with a similar pattern as her wings. She wears white leggings, yellow gloves and light yellow Mary Janes. Both of which contain greyish tints to represent the owl's talons. She is often regarded to as "Professor Konoha" and often highly spoken of by other friends. In the Nexon Game, she is the leader of the Carefree Floater's Club. In Season 2, she is involved with Kaban and Eurasian Eagle Owl with studying Celliens.
