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

SpringbokOriginal.jpg

The Springbok is an Antelope native to steppe and other dry areas of southwestern Africa. They're around 80 centimeters high at the shoulders and around 130 centimeters long. Their back is reddish brown with their underside and rump being white. The brown and white is divided by a thick dark brown stripe. Both sexes have very similar, curved horns.

Springboks are most famous for their "pronking", a series of jumps with stiff legs thought to be a display of strength and fitness to potential mates as well as predators and other males. In fact, it's what they're named after - "spring" means jump in Afrikaans, and "bok" refers to antelope or goat.
