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.

Red Kangaroos are the largest species of kangaroo and marsupial in the world. They live in the dry mainland of Australia. Males are around 1.4 meters in body length and weigh around 90 kilograms while females are 1.1 meters and weigh roughly 40 kilograms. The males backs are usually reddish-brown giving them the species their name; females are usually grey with a little blueish shine. They usually rest under the shade at day and get more active at night. Their diet consists of shrubs and grasses.

Red Kangaroos live in groups called "mobs" which can consist of up to 100 individuals. They're lead by an alpha male which is constantly challenged by other males within the group and has the sole right to mate with the females. They fight and defend themselves by jabbing with their front paws or kicking with their legs while balancing on their tail. Breeding season is all year-round but more births occur in spring and summer. A single young, called joey, is born after only one month of pregnancy and is only the size of a cherry. It will immediately crawl into the mothers pouch and hang on to a teat for months. After another four months it will have grown fur and start leaving the pouch to explore. A startled joey will immediately dive into the mothers pouch for protection. Mothers are able to pause the development of a new embryo if another one is still in her pouch.

Red Kangaroos are abundant across mainland Australia. Dingos are their largest predator but humans kill dingoes as they're seen as a threat to livestock. Like most wildlife in Australia, kangaroos are protected but their numbers are kept in check to prevent overpopulation and them turning into a pest.

Kemono Friends' Red Kangaroo first appeared in the Nexon Game. She likes jumping around and putting things into her aprons pocket. If she has to defend herself, she will box and kick her opponents. In Pavilion, she's encountered in the desert and, similar to Thomson's Gazelle, often hops on the spot when standing still. In her unique behavior, she bounces on the pogo stick.
