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

Rhinoceros HornbillOriginal.jpg

The Rhinoceros Hornbill is a species of bird native to South-East Asia. They're around 80 centimeters long and males weigh almost three kilograms while females weigh a little over two kilograms. Their plumage is mostly black with white legs and tailfeathers which have a black band. They have large colourful beaks with a large golden horn, which is called casque, on top. It functions as a resonating chamber to amplify their calls. The males usually have larger casques. A sure way to tell the sex's apart is by looking at the eye; males have red eyes with black rims and females have blue eyes with red rims.

The Rhinoceros Hornbill primarily feed on fruit, but will also eat insects, reptiles, rodents and small birds. Like many other birds, they bond for life. They will find a hole in a tree to make a nest. The female stays inside with the freshly laid eggs while entrance is sealed with mud and feces except for a small slit which is used to feed the female while she incubates the eggs and the chicks once they're born. When the chicks are around three months old the mother breaks out by herself and the parents reseal the entrance in the same way once again, this time both of them feeding the chicks for another three months until they're old enough to break out and fly.

Kemono Friends' Rhinoceros Hornbill was revealed on JAZA's hornbill day on March 1st 2020 along Great Hornbill. She did not yet appear in any other media. She has short black hair and a large red yellow and white beak with casque on her head. Her blue eyes along with a red ring she wears as a necklace indicate towards her being based on a female animal, which is arguably quite rare among friends. She wears a black t-shirt and long black fingerless gloves. She wears white hot pants, a white pantyhose and pale yellow and white shoes.
