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' media has never seen an official release outside of its native Japan. Our wiki, Japari Library, exists as a resource for the series' 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


Donkeys are widespread domesticated animals mostly used as beasts of burden in underdeveloped countries. They're also kept as pets and for breeding. While the population of Donkeys is increasing worldwide, its wild counterpart, the African Wild Ass, is critically endangered. They were domesticated in Egypt around 3000 BC.

Donkeys are herbivorous and easy to care for. They are often stabled together with horses and are said to have a calming effect on nervous horses and young foals. They may even be used to guard sheep like a shepherd dog! Their most prominent uses are to work in agriculture and transport. As such, they were used in world war 1 to carry wounded soldiers from the battlefield or carry equipment while also serving as a source of food in an emergency situation.

Donkeys may breed with horses of other species. A female horse and a male Donkey will have a baby mule! In November last year, a zebra on a British farm made international news after she surprisingly gave birth to a zebra-donkey hybrid, a so-called zonkey named Zippy!

Kemono Friends' Donkey has grey hair fading into white at the tip of her bangs. She has a long brown ponytail and big donkey ears. She has brown eyes. She's wearing a long sleeved white shirt (with a gray gradient on the edge of the sleeves), a short gray dress on top of it, and a black bow tie. The lower part of her dress hides her hips as well as the starting point of her donkey tail. Her tights are white fading into grey and her boots are black. In the nexon game, she likes giving and taking advice and suggestions from and to other friends so much that she had her own consultation room. She has good memory and helps out whenever she can.
