>"Sir, the fans want to see Kaban-chan!"
>"Don't fret, we have Kaban-chan #2, Kyururu-kun, he's gonna be a hit!"
They will pay with their dirty yakuza blood for such malice.
That looks like Player 2 Kaban, but without the charm. I know they had to do a new character that looked similar to Kaban, but this looks like a Tumblr OC.
>no safari hat or something that covers her against the sun/rain better, or doesn't create interesting angles like the hole in kaban's tattered hat
>messenger bag, no cute backpack to make her look like a shy turtle and could have awkward animation because it's not secured to her back, also way less comfortable to have it on one shoulder
>no complaints about the vest, baggy shorts made kaban look like she had a large ass and looked more comfortable than capris
>no loafers that looked out of place but still complimented the look
Maybe they're going for "she was just another visitor and bad shit started to happen", so she doesn't look as more prepared for an adventure. Wait, it's a boy?
I'll really hate it if they go for "it has no defined gender, so it's either a girl or a boy :)". That would bring undesirables. I'd prefer if she were a girl, not really a fan of straight shota, and not really a fan of Yuri, but cute girls cuddling together is always adorable. Wish they made fanart of a cute boy doing the same with the cute Friends, but it would be shotadick.
Did they hire someone to (attempt to) imitate Mine Yoshizakis style?
This kinda of thing is certainly on the rise though.
I don't even watch a lot of series this season, but there's Precure, Slime and Zombie which are all doing their own genderfluid shit.
I wonder if it's being profitable to the companies. Fanart-wise, I can at least say that Masao had a small surge but dwindled down fast, Junko is still the zombie with more fanart, and there's not a lot of trap fanart from Masao.
Glad to know this story will make absolutely no sense and be a terrible terrible forced sequel.
It probably isn't, but it's earning some shekels with the women in power, and other super tolerance assholes.
Lily-Masao was just a one-off joke. It wasn't brought up again in any of the following episodes.
And? He's still a boy who all interested are super proud of.
His episode also get great production values and a high effort idol performance with a solo song, complete focus on his fag ass.
So it's not just a "one-off joke".
Oh well, this shit is a confirmed flop.
>Oh well, this shit is a confirmed flop.
Gee you fucking think?
I didn't keep up with Kemono Friends, so I missed most of the shitstorm regarding it. What happened?
>Kadokawa buys rights to make anime based on mobile game
>Game goes under before they even start making the anime
>Since they're still contractually obligated to make the anime they toss it to a random guy to direct with a budget of 30 yen and a milking goat
>That guy (Tatsuki) and his small team make all of the cgi models, do all of the animations, spend most of their money on inexperienced seiyuu, and put their hearts and souls into this shitty mobile game anime that probably didn't deserve the love and care they gave it
>They make a janky but charming cg anime with an innocence that warms the heart
>The show is far more successful than expected and Tatsuki decides to make a Christmas OVA for the fans on his own time, unpaid
>Kadokawa fires him for this
>People go apeshit
>Old crew say they won't do a second season without Tatsuki
>Kadokawa forces the Seiyuu to take part in an apology video
>People go more apeshit
>Kadokawa goes on to make this new season anyways with way more budget and none of the charm
>Tatsuki starts making his own cgdct cg anime that had one trailer so far
I might have missed some stuff
Tatsuki's new show Kemurikusa is going to air alongside Kemono Friends S2, possibly on the same day (January 9th). That's gonna cause a shitstorm no matter what.
>Kemono Friends flops and Kemurikusa does well, proving him right and giving Kadokawa their just deserts
>Kemono Friends sucks but overshadows Kemurikusa anyway and everyone is mad at Kadokawa and normalfags for it
>we somehow get the blackest timeline and Kemono Friends S2 is genuinely better than Kemurikusa. Tatsuki is never heard from again.
But we are already in the worst timeline
That's some serious Judaism. Is Kikekawa owned by gooks or something?
you didn't include kikekawa might 'persuade' Tatsuki into flopping his own show on purpose by sending in goons to his studio and his own house, just to make their s2 look better and to (((take out the competition))) while they're at it so to speak, not matter how big or small they are.
>I might have missed some stuff
Yes and I'll add
>Tatsuki is making money like crazy due to his loyal fanbase
>He from what 5ch anons have said is being given Job offers from major studios
Not that I don't doubt it could happen but wouldn't it be kind of pathetic for a massive media corp to be that afraid of one man?
>Job offers from major studios
Shouldn't he be super blacklisted at this point or is he just too good for the rest of them to pass up on?
Looks like they're just going to do a straight soft reboot Kemono friends season 1. This is pretty obviously a terrible decision because you just can't recapture this sort of thing. A while ago I had assumed they were just going to turn it into a more typical anime for a mainstream market but instead these weak attempts at replicating the style come off like a chinese knockoff. This seriously looks like something I would find on a box of condoms in Chinatown labelled as "kemuno buddies".
it might have worked to some degree if it had been a different island with different friends, but going with (most of) the old crew does more damage than good.
on the plus side, /ss/ will have a field day
Who in their right mind thought it would be a remotely decent idea, especially by replacing the MC with a penis?
>especially by replacing the MC with a penis?
I still think Kaban-kun is the prettier shota
>tfw no kot girl ara to pin you down and "eat" you with her lower lips
Shit sucks, man.
Kyururu: Please don't eat me!
Serval: I'm not gonna eat you. I'm gonna rape you! :3
Some people will do anything for pixiv fame.
/ss/ is the single worst shit in existence, so it's not on the plus side, no.
So is it confirmed to be a boy?
That's just the cherry on top of their retardedness.
>implying it would not be better if yuri
2 things to note: almost always low fps, Kyururu is almost certainly a boy.
>/ss/ is the single worst shit in existence,
what the fuck is wrong with you
It's called "not being gay or beta little fuck".
So a disease called "taste".
/ss/ is fine but it is a fucking disgrace and a mockery of Tatsuki's work to officially turn as pure a show as Kemono Friends into /ss/bait. No bones about it, a committee sat down and figured out the least offense way they could think of to whore the friends out, and this is the result.
>it might have worked to some degree if it had been a different island with different friends
Kaban and others will return later in the series, with major fandom praise. Meanwhile the doujins will keep the series in undeath because they can't just stop touching the poop.
I'd rather it be and I really hope it's a prequel, deep down I want it to be a prequel.
>s2 starts comfy, then starts going down the drain with stronger ceruleans
>mirai borrows her hat to kyururu in the ferris wheel or at some point, one strand of kyururu's hair gets stuck in the hat
>they all go to the ferris wheel to say goodbye in the last peaceful moment
>mirai and kyururu escape the park and have to leave the friends, the situation grew out of control
I know it would be a really dark if they're going for a child's series, but even then, they could make it light and fluffy until that moment. Still, I'm not sure if they'd show a lot of Friends getting Cerulean'd, that'd be too tragic.
>is he just too good for the rest of them to pass up on?
He prints money.
remember, it could always be worse
Zap it up to the extreme, Servalchu, among which.
or better ? '
the studio that did kemono friends has an anime coming out next season which looks just as quality from the cover: Kemurikusa [ https://anidb.net/a13795]
you're going to support them, right?
I won't. I'm not exactly liking how Tatsuki got full of himself either, thinking his thunder can strike again, while going for a setting that doesn't look fun at all, and won't fit his technical low-end studio, instead of trying something bright, light hearted with cute designs, which at least we know he was good at.
Kemurikusa will be at least as bad as KF2.
Go away Kadokawa shill.
Or you can keep the shitflinging to yourself, that has nothing to do with shilling KF 2, which is probably gonna be horrible too.
Just saying that the Tatsuki that anons suck the cock until it's sparkly clean is probably not good enough to make a good product by himself either.
It was the unlikely combination of Kemono Friends' premise and character designs, and his staff happening to be great on such a laid back, bright series.
This Kemurikusa looks like someone desperately trying to show "I can do REAL stuff too, look at me", and eventually failing hard.
Guess we will find out next month.
the one in charge of this should just make all the friends into christmas cakes and have the MC be some wage slave waking up from a fallout cryosleep below a safari.
how many mini episodes are out there? im finding a bunch of them all over the place
THEY CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT
>Kyururu is almost certainly a boy.
what makes you say that?
>/ss/ is fine
Only if you're a beta with shit taste.
Look at the PV.
But Ishikawa Yui is also doing mostly deep, often perfect for boy character voices.
fight me, faggot.
Put em up old sport!
I like /ss/ aswell, I just wanted a (you)

>into christmas cakes
Let's not go below an already low standard now.

Anyone taking bets on them including a Grape-kun reference? I'm in for one internets that it will be the third episode.
Welcome to Youkoso Shotarape Park
How sure we are about mc being a guy?
The Friends are one of my biggest cases of girls I don't want to lewd, and yet I want to at the same time. Serval and Kaban are too adorable, warm and friendly, yet it makes them more desirable, somehow. Other Friends I feel like this as well are Silky Anteater and Alpaca.
I just noticed that some Friends are leaking with…liquid Sandstar, and that Caracal is plowing a little boy, though it looks more like he was actually devoured.
They need warm and tender loving. I want to impregnate a Friend, then stay with her and raise our children together as husband and wife.
>We can't go back to Japari park anymore
bad times are here to stay
Looks like we'll have to make the bad times go away by force.
I feel the same. Friends are pure beings that need their smiles protected.
But if I had to be treated lewdly by a pack of horny friends, I'd hope it'll be by Hippo, Rhino and Campo Flicker.
I wonder how many people applied for Friendology, with the excuse of being near them. How many times did Japari Steve Irwin and Japari David Attenborough almost lost their cool when Friends got curious or started behaving like animals but doing lewd poses.
>otter playing with a pebble but spreading her thighs and rolling on her back
>curious Jaguar pawing the camera on all fours
>friendly aurochs letting herself be petted and asking to be scratched/groomed like some cows
>cub/recently friended animals behave less wary of their surroundings, so chick Toki or cub serval sit in Japari Steve Irwin's legs
No Tatsuki; No Tanoshii
It's that simple.
If the original director isn't back, it's a hard pass on KF S2.
Opppps… wrong pix.
Is Kadokawa the Bethesda of anime?
more like EA. Acquiring talent and franchises and then running stuff into the ground
Isn't the point of nature documentaries that the people filming don't get involved with the animals?
If Steve Irwin doesn't stick his fingers in a crocodile it isn't a real nature documentary.
If a bunch of friends got reverted back to animals, would they eat each other like in nature? How would they react if they returned human once again?
React like KADOKAWA?
>If a bunch of friends got reverted back to animals, would they eat each other like in nature?
animals aren't "kill or be killed" 24/7
>How would they react if they returned human once again?
war veterans of opposing countries often meet up to reconcile after peace is declared
We joke about that, but before all this shit with Kadokawa firing Tatsuki happened, I was legit hopeful for a PC/console KF game. Now, I just hope it never happens solely because of Kadokawa.
It would've been a shitty mobage like the dead one anyway, or just shitty.
Were the ceruleans necessary in any context in the franchise?
Well, they needed a reason for humanity to abandon a profitable theme park full of cute girls.
I never really understood Pop Team's fixation against kadokawa… until kemono friends.
they needed something for the friends to battle in the smartphone game.
>the Paca masked guy
Finally a KF friend that doesn't have trash tier build.
There might have been but now we will never know.
one more day and we'll find out how hard the franchise got kicked in the balls by season 2
(pics kind of related)
We have hit the animvhaarta, when the rebirth of a series is its true death. Sad.
>**86位/—-位 74 点 86 点 —- 点 79 天 烟草 BD1【Kemurikusa】
It just went up for sale, and already rocking.
I guess nips have spoken, and KF 2 is fucked.
>22位/86位 Kemurikusa BD1【早期】
>**40位/—-位 Kemurikusa BD1
weebcucks will still gobble that shit up and that is a fact.
Can you explain what these numbers mean? Can't read nip.
Even worse. Certain portion of the fanbase will turn against each other and will start saying that
-first season wasn't even that good, so take off your nostalgia glasses, goy
-this one is better before it airs
-firing the director wasnt a big deal anyway, anyone can cover it
I checked Twitter yesterday and read something weird, checked for Kemurikusa and there's this persona saying that the "Tatsuki believers" have been harassing some people or outright boycotting anything related to KF2.
The fuck are these numbers? I forgot how you read them, actually, I never cared enough to remember
I don't need to be a psychiatrist to know that faggot is fucking paid to spread horseshit all over the Kemurikusa circles groups, just like kadokawa did with that 'mine is jealous that's why KF died' bullshit template. No doubt they also paid other people to spread the same horseshit on other platforms as well just to be 'strategic' about it
The important thing is the "22位/86位" and "40位/—-" meaning that: it is currently 22th on the ranking list, and it was at 86th place before the last update, while the other version is currently at 40th place, and wasn't ranked yet at the last update (therefore —-).
If you wanna know just how good that number is, let me just tell you that it wasn't in recent memory that anything started out anywhere near as high, especially non-continuations, or that the current second highest ranking on the list starts at "1333位/1385位", and it's a continuation, Date a Live III.
I deduce this is a sort of "talk with your wallet" vengeance from the nips, which is technically the biggest "fuck you" (after physical lynching, that is) for these old, white collar moneycrats.
These ruthless, income-centered, economic speculators will see two projects, the first being a wonderful work of passion and genius, the predicted income being, let's say, 53,000,000 slantyshekels, while the second work is mediocre, more of the same, but manages to pull low instinct strings in lemmings so it manages to keep up economically, the predicted income being 54,050,000. Now, I can assure you that 97% of the time, these speculators will choose the second work without a second thought.
The world is dirty place.
>The world is dirty place.
That's why we need a planetary genocide now.
Goddamn space rocks taking their sweet time.

I'm angry at Kadokawa kicking out the man responsible for the success of Kemono Friends, but I won't shoot down KF2 until I've seen it. And so far Kemurikusa has been a failure.
There's always someone guilty for something. Kadokawa are thieves. Tatsuki was given the spotlight by adoring fans and he decided to squander it on a bullshit project.
Just watched ep 1 and i'm amazed it was not as bad as I was afraid it'd be.
>Don't eat us!
>Kyururu not being annoying as fuck
>Duck Friend's autism (though she came off as annoying at times)
>cerulean design and CG way worse than season 1
>I kind of forgot Kaban existed so let's pretend season 1 never happened
Yeah they are all over the comments of Season 2 in horrible. There is one guy saying not to buy blu-rays and everyone else is talking about how they are a cult and harassers that should be ignored.
Donkey's design is seriously cute. I also like the animal very much, and I'm sad that the native species in my country is slowly going extinct because they were used for work, but with modern technology, there's no need for them and thus, less and less people breeding them. Adorable animals.
>the postapocalyptic element is still there
>Blue Kaban wakes up in a vita chamber from Bioshock
>animation even worserer than S1
>those goddamn bastards had Serval forget about original Kaban
>the characters maintain the innocence, but are much more proactive and wordy than previously
>the OP starts with a ringtone and ends in misery
>the ceruleans look like the 90s Reboot show
Casuals will prefer it to Kemurikusa, no ifs and buts.
But you can hear Alpaca speaking in the post credits.
>That's seriously what they went with, with the ceruleans.
I watched it. The problem is that it feels all over the place, but I wouldn't call it terrible but not excellent, so I guess it's on par with the first episode of season 1.
>character models are cute
>kyururu isn't annoying
>the facilities look more beat down than before
<friends explaining their strengths or skills sound more like obligatory info dump instead of just showing what they can do, or being more casual/natural about it
<friends quickly deduce kyururu is a human, even if they haven't seen one in a while, and they're not even the smarter characters like the owls or shoebill; makes the whole mystery in the first season feel like no big deal
<15 fps animation jumps to fluid one, but the characters' movement is just off and wonky at times, it's somehow more jarring than serval chasing Kaban in the savanna
<serval doesn't sound as dumb but excited as the first season, she sounds more like pink chair from animal yell but her enthusiasm feels forced, not even her sugoiis sound authentic
I will continue watching regardless, there's some mystery and I want to see if the series improves. Why is the Sandstar in that container? Why is the mountain empty? What the fuck was that scream?
What does this have to do with casuals?
Kemurikasa is casual as fuck too with its edgy appeal, but add to that how that series revolves around a gigantic faggot male lead.
This might be shit, it really is, but god dam Kemurikusa is just horrible piece of unholy crap.
Casuals as those who skipped S1, or don't know about the Tatsuki case. They will just assume the stylistic differences are natural and even planned from S1.
A detail I liked but still found it funny was how they have the original animal sounds, like the quacks when Duck was waving her arm or Donkey's braying at the start; it was adorable.
>those goddamn bastards had Serval forget about original Kaban
It's okay, t-this is probably just a different Serval, the real one is surely still adventuring with Kaban! R-Right?
>What the fuck was that scream?
odds are it was the friend that saved them at the end of the episode, at first i though it was some old guy, but listening closely there was a roar in it.
I though she was another friend, they couldnt resist fucking with that story?
Why do the cgi ceruleans looks even worse than in s1?
One thing I will point out: It was stated in one of the BD bonus things that Friends are exclusively female. What the hell is Kyururu then?
Because they decided to change them from their simplistic design that actually made them feel a lot more like a force of nature.
>One thing I will point out: It was stated in one of the BD bonus things that Friends are exclusively female. What the hell is Kyururu then?
I'm sure we will find out when
Arai and Fennec Pangolin and Armadillo catch up with the main group
>you will never wander the post-apocalypse with a pair of lusty catgirls
Scrubbed from the history books.
Who else misses this part?
I liked the old guy going on about how Tsuchinoko are totally real even though he can't prove it.
The not-tanoshii is how this fucking Kyururu is a boy, now I can say for sure.
I hope they will burn in hell for this.
That shit was the best, fuck.
why didnt they do this in the new one?
>this fucking Kyururu is a boy
Now they're saying he's a girl.
>That shit was the best, fuck.
Apparently the japanese TV version had national geographic inserts, removed due to kikery.
>Apparently the japanese TV version had national geographic inserts, removed due to kikery.
anon, you cant post that without some evidence.
>Now they're saying he's a girl.
Who are saying that?
If anything, the episode made it more possible than ever it's a boy.
What if Kaban-chan comes back and fuggs the new guy?
I'm pretty sure they are doing the "Kyururu is a boy" reveal later, and he will either be coupled with Kaban, or be her little brother.
You heard it here first, don't forget.

Shotas worldwide need tender loving from horny animal-girls
I liked the way season 1 was but I have absolutely no problem if the show turns into /ss/
The question comes up: are you into little boys, or you can imagine yourself as a full beta?
It's either/or if you're into shota.
So you are that much of a fucking beta that you became homo, for the most faggot looking males in reach?
>not self inserting as the full alpha shota
smh tbh fam
It would be adorable and interesting if all the Friends retained or more or less reflected their real sizes. Tiny Arai-san , fun-sized Fennec and fuckhuge Moose sounds like a blast.
>tfw no doujins involving a cheeky shota who are capable of shitposting and bantz
>tfw said shota won't get in a threesome relationship with a naive onee-chan who thinks the shota is adorable and her sister who knows the shota is a cheeky brat
>tfw the onee-chans won't run the shota ragged every night
I wouldn't hate that I think, although like >>80396 says, there are no doujins like that, especially because shotacon has appeal to the aforementioned two group of people, so nobody wants an alpha shota.
I found by accident an alpha shota pornographic japanese comic, but it was full of NTR, rape and mind control, so I nope the fuck out of there.
Sounds hot, please give name.
I just have a thing for the girl being larger than the boy. I also like it the other way around which is why I like loli as well. There is not enough stuff with adult men that are smaller then the women so I resort to stuff like Jeanne D'ack.
>Fire the guy who made the show good
>Make new season of said show
>Spotbilled Duck will never have you walk behind her to tease you with her thicc butt
Didn't really like the OP. The first time I tried watching the episode I actually quit there.
Cerulean design somehow felt worse.
Duck Friend was probaby my favorite thing about the episode.
duck is love, duck is life
Terrible design tbh. It's basically an entire dead duck for hair.
>Sex with ducks
Next thing you want is duck marriage.
Of course you gotta make an honest duck out of her.
New episode soon. I wonder if they actually made the series with normal framerate, with a 'make it poor' button on the side to mimic S1.
>ywn nut inside a cute rabbi
>ywn nut inside a cute rabbi

Why did they cut this?
Tatsuki begged them to leave it in but they did it anyway to see him cry.
>Why did they cut this?
They have national geographic videos in their place now. But cuckyroll doesn't show them.
National Geographic probably wants licensing fees to air it internationally. They won't even fix spelling errors doubt they will pay to air an entire show.
God fuck that omnilight completely kills the visuality.
Episode 2 report
>5 minutes in: gianto panda a cute

I want to fugg giant panda chan
Quick OC to celebrate her smugness
How can anyone enjoy the antics with Kyururu all but confirmed as a fucking boy?
He literally ruins the whole show, aside from the horrible visuals.
She looks like a girl to me.
The preview art is adorable, though I also enjoyed the overly simplistic S1 style with the girls' cutouts on sticks. A small detail I do like in S2 are the animal sounds whenever they jump, get upset or perform some other actions. It still felt weird how Serval crying was a huge thing in S1 and here Red Fox is apparently a crybaby, though them not changing her :D smile when crying made it look like she was faking it. I noticed that during the OP this week, Gen didn't say her name. Was it a recording error, or are they firing her seiyuu?
Next episode will be the dolphins and seals that appear in the OP, right?
No, and he's the only one without any bust at all in the history of Kemono Friends.
Do you think it's a coincidence? It isn't.
They've been smart to leave it undefined. With fans shitting all over Kemurikusa due to the male MC, there's no way she won't be officially a girl.
A lot of the new designs seem to be put the animal's head as their hairstyle. I don't really like it.
They're definitely doing the Undertale thing and leaving the gender ambiguous so that people can self insert as either and twice the amount of fanart gets drawn. They have sacrificed the furenzu on the altar of /ss/ for a quick buck.
Also stop this "people hate Kemurikusa because of the male MC" meme, the show is good in spite of Wakaba and people mostly dislike because he's a shit character so far, not just because he's a dude.
>Also stop this "people hate Kemurikusa because of the male MC" meme
>shut it down
Sorry, but that's exacty what anon remarked: and they mentioned /ss/ just like you. In the end your hipsterism hurt kemurikusa more than it did kemono friends 2.
>people mostly dislike because he's a shit character so far, not just because he's a dude
Yep. If he was a bit more alpha and intelligent, it would've been great.
I'm telling you Tatsuki should have made Wakaba American. Then he could have just punched the girls and they would have naturally thrown themselves at him. The entire anime would be eating hamburgers and having sex just like in my Western entertainment. That would have made me happy.
Is wakaba a self-insert of the director?
I'm pretty sure there will be a revalation of Kyururu being a boy (I mean, one look at him and it's obvious), and that's what the retarded KF2 staff thought would be a "smart" way to differentiate themselves from S1.
Doesn't look or act like a girl so I don't see why he should be one.
I still think he's a cerulean a la Terminator Genesis (he doesn't know he is a spy, but when the time comes for the robot uprising he will betray the frens' secrets), hence the heterochromia.
That still means this season has a fagboy main lead.
Thank you nips for shitting on another series I loved.
>In the end your hipsterism hurt kemurikusa more than it did kemono friends 2.
But I'm watching it and not this dumpster fire.
These passive aggressive snipes aren't funny, they just make you sound like a sassy little bitch. No wonder you like Wakaba so much.
It takes a real apologetic beta faggot to like Wakaba.
But this place is full of them, so yeah.
Nah /animu/ is pretty cool.
>expecting a shota to act like a man
This thread is infested with idiots
>But I'm watching it and not this dumpster fire.
B-b-but otakus preordered a gorillion copies of the Kemurikusa BD! It literally went from 46th place, to 3rd in the buyer remorse category.
They're not meant to be funny. I am very happy that you're angry though. Go pound back another 5 double quarter pounders with cheese so you can reach that 400 pound goal.
I'm not expecting a shota to act like a man, you retarded humongous faggot, I'm just stating what kind of person can tolerate this kind of main character.
It's not even doing that well anymore despite the initial hype.
>*847位/*792位 17 点 869 点 2876 点 64 天 Kemurikusa BD1
Slowly went from within top 100 to hardly in top 1,000 and steadily falling. I wonder what could be the cause of this…
If he were exactly the same but voiced by a shota VA instead of the grown ass man they got he'd be fine. I can forgive a child acting like that much of a retard, but not a teenager/adult.
Manipulative shilling kikes having taken over the industry confirmed!
> but I won't shoot down KF2 until I've seen it
>I can smear your name so it's associated with shit
You're right, anon.
But two can play this game: let's see which shows name equals failure by the end of the season. KF2 or Kemurikusa.
realistic outcome is
>kemono friends s2 technically makes a profit but nowhere near as much as they projected. maybe if we're lucky they realize they killed the golden goose and some execs have to fall on their swords, otherwise they deny reality and run the universe into the ground for another season or two until it has been milked dry
>kemurikusa is successful enough for a niche shoestring budget show but hardly the second coming of anime christ. tatsuki has to do take on some boring contracts after this before he has enough monies to do what he wants again
The situations are asymmetrical. "Nobody director shoots for the stars and misses" sounds like much less of a "failure" to me than "massive conglomerate turns the money printing machine handed to them into something technically profitable out of shortsighted greed and spite."
How is it profitable if everyone and their mother rejects the show?
The latest episode was ok. Serval and Caracal seem to be tailored after Silver Fox and Red Fox, more than the original Serval. And Caracal keeps getting bullied.
>The latest episode was ok
It will never be okay with a shota main. Never.
Do they call it kun or chan? I can't bother checking.>>82962
>Do they call it kun or chan? I can't bother checking.
They call him "chan", but that hardly matters now, does it? I don't even understand how they would know of the suffix "-kun", since Friends have never met a male in their lives, so they call everyone "-chan".
This scene looked like Wily E Coyote.
Thanks based Kadokawa, you always know what's best.
>It will never be okay with a shota main. Never.
>He doesn't like /ss/
What is wrong with you
removing Kaban wasn't okay, though.
I think /ss/ is among the worst things in existence, but regardless of my personal taste, the audience that likes that really doesn't fit the audience that was supposed to be the target for Kemono Friends.
There has to be a pronoun in one of the japanese commercials, to know whether it's a boy or a girl.
This looks like something straight out of MMD. More than usual anyway.
There really isn't.
Nips definitely think he's a boy though.
I know, it's very problematic, ugh. I mean, yikes, pedophilia? Oof.
Alot of the new friend designs bug me they just put a miniaturized version of the animal into their hair and give them a tail if necessary.
Why do you dislike /ss/?
What kind of perverse thinking makes you connect this kid in a children show, to adult women fucking their sons? My guess is you're talking in regard to porn drawing communities, which don't matter with the source material.
I'm not the one mentioned /ss/. I just said that a shota main character ruins this series. Because - and same reason for >>83069 - shotas are shit, disgusting and fetishized, as basically all anime shota are girly and near androgynous abominations.
The few series where little boys actually look and act like little boys are okay.
Do lolis bother you too, normalfaggot?
This episode was an improvement, no real complaints except for Kyururu constantly remindinf that he/she's a human. I hope that these apparent mysteries pay off, with the sea Friends mentioning the ocean being in a bad mood and the one that's employing the detectives. She mentioned something about being used to wait, will they try to hook season 1 somehow, or will it simply be a new Friend that knows Kyururu? Her voice sounded familiar but don't know.
>if you don't like boys, you also don't like girls
What the fuck kind of logic is that, retard?
You keep connecting child characters to fetishized shotas. Is every kid a shota to you, every little girl a loli? Maybe you should stop watching anime for a while.
>shotas are shit, disgusting and fetishized
But Kyururu is not sexualized in the least.
You must have dug up some hentai and now you're resentful that having a male MC allows this.
Yeah, he is not sexualized, however he is shit, and his character is complete disgust.
Underrated post. Almost all of the new friends are like this.
Really shows when the man in charge has no fantasy stuck in his brain.
But Kyururu is a girl.
Not sure where you got that from, since Kyururu is definitely a boy according to nips.
>according to nips
You mean the hentai /ss/ you're strangely very informed about? All other forums I've seen normally consider her female.
>you mean the hentai /ss/
I mean pretty much everyone. When it's 99% certain he's a boy, I'd be surprised if the people would somehow perceive him as a girl, so I call bullshit.
Pixiv says he's a boy, what "other forums" say he's a girl, I wonder?
>I mean pretty much everyone
They've been calling her Kyururu-chan for 3 episodes now. That doesn't happen with the wimp male MC in Kemurikusa.
It looks like you're actually the one stuck with the shitty shota.
I only care about gianto panda.
I am more of a Donkey man, shame she didn't do much.
>They've been calling her Kyururu-chan for 3 episodes now
Are you brain fucking dead?
They are Friends, they aren't Japanese Citizen of Our Time. They don't even know "-kun", everyone is "xy-chan" to them, that is the fucking point.
In the meantime, nips think he's a boy, he looks like a boy, everything points out towards the revalation (unless left androgynous) of him being a boy.
>They don't even know "-kun"
Asspull with zero evidence. Don't try semantics with actual fucking grammar, you retarded nigger.
>nips think he's a boy
Nope, that's a minority drawing your beloved /ss/ hentai. You're just desperate that the actual shota is in Kemurikusa.
How would they know "-kun" every friend is female they never use kun. Hell it doesn't even matter shota characters are constantly referred to as "-chan" as well especially by older-sister type characters.
Of course she is the only new-friend who actually has a decent design. She still has an animal head for hair and regular clothes. However they at least dressed her in black and white to make her consistent.
>How would they know "-kun" every friend is female they never use kun
Yeah, that's what I'm referring to.
The -kun honorific can be and is used for females. Usually young female coworkers are addressed with -kun when -san seems too formal.
Yeah, thanks but I know as much too, I'm merely agreeing with you, and saying that the Friends doesn't live in a typical japanese high school setting, so of course they refer with -chan to a boy. That's literally all they know.
Your bluff got called, just stop. That reasoning is the same as saying Japari Park has to be a dream, because something seems unrealistic in the life of friends.
Come back when you have evidence. Meanwhile, I got myself an argument that fits exactly in your ass: there can be no mystery about Kyruru's sex, because Tatsuki got fired. He was the one pulling weird shit, now it's just little girls doing animal things.
Your argument makes no sense.
My argument does: Kyururu has no breasts or bust. His hair is boy-length. He uses "boku" which is uncommon for girls. He doesn't act as openly and casual as a girl would with another girl.
All these little things add up, and the result is what you can see on pixiv or nip imageboards.
Anon, don't go to those places
wtf I love 4channel now
>My argument does
Gotcha: finally you admit it's just your reasoning. No one cares about your spin: there is no contest, when the only fact is she's being addressed as -chan. Call me back when your favorite /ss/ porno on pixiv becomes word of god.
>she's not a girl, because here is how girls are allowed to act in anime
Hilarious, I can't stop laughing.
>still not understanding why -chan means bullshit
>ignoring how most nips think of him
>ignoring how he looks
This must be the stupidest person on the board. Also, fuck off with your /ss/, only you care about that you homo sexual fuck.
Everyone here thought it was a boy when the character was unveiled too. People only started to doubt it when the gender was not unveiled in the first episode. I understand why some people would think it's a girl but it's retarded to think it's impossible to be a boy.
Got some new friends yesterday. Still no sign of Gianto Panda returning.
>-chan means bullshit
Source: my ass.
Kyururu's gender is undefined, but so far there's nothing to prove the male hypothesis outside of your fanwank theories. Xe's neither male or female until our God and Lord Kadokawa says so.
It's okay if you're doing this for true love and not for the sake of sex itself anon.
I bet you must love traps, you fucking faggot.
Stop fighting and post new friends.
These are false friends. Shun the false friends. Less you be a heathen of the heretical Kadokawa.
The best part of the episode was Vampire, who shows up for about 3 seconds.
Aardwolf looks constantly costipated, like a jap version of the 'it hurts just a little bit' meme.
Serval running into the goblin slayer cave was a little unnerving.
Caracal is much funnier than Serval, probably because she's got quirks that aren't just being dumb as fuck. Serval is the living dead.
Caracal is the only character that I really dislike.
She doesn't even fit this show, her personality feels like it belongs to a straight isekai harem's tsundere main girl.
Finally someone who says something stupid. Caracal best girl.
Go back to your shounen crap.
By removing Serval's silly antics and buttmonkey status, she now feels like a companion who's constantly chipper. Not that there's anything wrong with being cheery, I love her for that, but more and more she feels like a dead weight or like a cutout. She just lacks something very essential and I can't pinpoint it, not just her buttmonkey status.
Show is starting to get really boring with the episodes that follow the same template. Travel, look at sketch book, find friends, find place, repeat.
I was a bit miffed with the detectives. Sure, it was funny that they curled up into a ball until sunrise, but it was way too early if they wanted to take Kyururu with their contractor, it just felt pointless. They could've simply introduced them at the third or fourth episode just a couple of steps behind the other group, they get frightened but by next episode they remember they're tough armored animals and find them. Of the next episode is about humans, maybe that could've been the point where they finally catch Kyururu.
There is no doubt that Kemono Friends Season 2 by Kadokawa wins the prize for best show of this winter season. Some would say Mob Psycho 100 deserves the award in lieu of its great animation, but I cannot ignore how Kemono Friends was born in very difficult times for both its production and team.
Did you know that the original director of KS was a thief and an idiot? It's true: he used company resources to make extra footage that he gave away for free, while his staff families were literally starving at home. I bet you don't really care about others, once you've hit fame uh? Thank God they fired him just in time for some honest joes to pick up the helm.
I couldn't care less if they starved or not. S1 was much better. Tatsuki did nothing wrong.
In fact, I for one never cared much about Tatsuki as a person. Yes, his staff nailed Kemono Friends S1, but looking at Kemurikusa it became obvious that his own ideas are hardly even tolerable, he's in fact one of the lowest kind of writer whose style just happened to work well with Kemono Friends' setting.
However, KF Season 2 introduced us wto new main lead (also made the previous main leads into side characters/non-existent respectively), and those characters are horrible: an out-of-place, unpleasant person, and a stupid little boy (?) without any impact or initiative.
Add to that the visuals have become infinitely worse than the zero budget S1, merely because of shitty decisions (full round face designs á'la chibi, but bigger bodies, also omnilight accentuating their poor models), and how repetitive the show feels, despite having lost the innocent charm too, or how the new friends' designs miss the point of what made the other ones so great.
KF 2 is the opposite of tanoshii.
>kemono friends had great written characters and 3D models
Tatsukifags are the new holocaust survivors.
I'll take goofy-looking but oddly charming models from season 1 because the shapes of the heads or most of the bodies don't look weird. Dunno if it's because the S2 studio wanted to create many different types of bodies, but it looks all over the place. They nailed Caracal and Kyururu, but Aardwolf has a weird dumpy torso, a head that looks a bit too wide and eyes too apart from each other, while others like cute Vampire look well. The ones at season one may look repetitive but they had a smaller budget, while here it looks like they have a bigger budget but decide to use it to render sea waves.
In personality, it's more that people liked how the girls kinda behave animalistic or have limited intelligence. While it is present here, it doesn't feel as prevalent , though maybe the intention is to show they've slowly gained intelligence, even though they seem eager to remind you how specialized they are at something, while it was more show-don't-tell at first season, or having Boss or the zookeepers telling about some traits. Jaguar never said she specialized at swimming, she just ferried Friends and Otter informed the group of her ferry service. Others were more aware of it, like Fennec and her huge ears dissipating heat. Some of them had some animal traits more present, like Raccoon rubbing her hands and being hunched over, or Lion having her pride but leaving most of the heavy lifting to her group.
Wow anon, surely you can't make claims like that without some proofs!
That's just what he got in his Kadokawa company email so it has to be true.
Say that with a straight face…
This reminds me of a bad trip I had, once.
> great written characters
At least they were endearing, especially the main leads. Two cute girls with different personalities, having huge impact on those around them. Especially Kaban.
Now we have a run-of-a-mill annoying and no-fun-allowed bitch and a fagboy with no presence or impact whatsoever.
Oh and visually speaking, this season looks like it had higher budget, obviously, but still managed to make characters that are bad to look at, instead of instant hits for fans.
Bats and unidentified friends. Is that a fluffy bird? And a monkey with dark circles around the eyes?
> Is that a fluffy bird?
looks like a baboon
>And a monkey with dark circles around the eyes?
it says "meerkat" right there
>cutie vampire was thrown aside just for a joke about how she's spooky
Man, I hope more bats appear, they're adorable.
>looks like a baboon
I can see the head now, but the mantle doesnt fit.
>I can see the head now, but the mantle doesnt fit.
she has a pink butt
Does the Donte effect improve Kemono Frodo Two?
Why do amphibian names sound so metal?
>Northern Dwarf Siren
I guess the design is nice, they're see through.
I'm afraid I can't let you do that, serval
>deflated her tits
>no sexy cleavage line
I can understand zipping her jacket up, though they look fine otherwise.
give them mustaches and male spanish voice actors, then yes.
Who else was disappointed that there weren't countless termite chans in the last epsiode?

Heed my warning anon
Check the Pink Panther and the Road Runner friends.
There's a problem with friends designs, originating from the origin of Kemono Friends as gachashit. There is a big divide between civilian and combat friends, typically armored with weapons. And possibly on another axis, plainclothes versus frilly (paid) gacha. S1 paid attention to have almost all of the friends from the civilian, plainclothes quadrant.
Crocodile, Caiman, Leopard and Black Panther are four fussy bitches.
Gorilla the bancho tomboy instead a cute.
She beats her chest menacingly.
They play a game of intimidation where the whole party howls and shakes.
Also not really important, but Kaban shows up and she's a cake now.
CAKEBAN IS FAKE KABAN
NO FORGIVENESS BURN IT ALL
It's too late now. They've already screwed here up.
Did they reveal Kyururu to be her brother/son or something yet?
Kaban throws a paper airplane on fire, for Tiger to chase, then she recognizes Serval and episode ends.
I'm very ok with this. It may not be Season 2 , but Kaban wasn't retconned out of existence, and now she's a more seasoned adventurer. Now I'm very interested at what they'll do.
i see Kadokawa shills in here aswell
>on a western board
>an extremely small one at that
we're not on /v/ or /pol/, nigger.
>crocs and panthers jobbed to the kitty escorts
Glaring error. They explained or made you understand that Serval in season 1 as well as smaller animals can't compare to something like Wolf or Moose in strength. Those four girls should've easily swatted those two like no big deal.
Putting that aside, is Kaban being Cerulean'd? Now her jacket is black as well.

>that ugly beast
I guess this is what Killing Friends is.
Badgers are tough, but any large cat can take them on. The issue is that while they're crushing its neck\skull, the thing would scratch them a lot. Animals would only accept this deal if they're really hungry, else the pain is not worth it.
Kaban leaves next episode. Never to be seen again until the finale
maybe it will die on the way back to its planet?
Amazing, they managed to fuck even Kaban up by making her disgusting hag!
>paying to shill in favor of pirating anime on the slower fartposting version of a dead anime board
To be fair it takes a very high IQ to understand Kemono Friends.
I sense a very strong shota x onee-san pairing coming up from Kaban and Kyururu, how correct is that feeling?
Pic related is actually what happens in the next episode. Kaban won't stick around.
Doesn't Kyururu need a HUMAN girl so that he can save humanity by reproducing.
I haven't seen anything else for the second season and i feel dumber for just watching that.
Kyururu is a girl.
I'm disappointed in all of you who are wating this
Everyone is pirating it and are legitimately curious what it is going to do. Not to mention the people making it did not fuck over Tatsuki they are just another small studio trying to make an enjoyable show.
The redesigned Goldfish friend is introduced.
I think he's a boy from what we saw, the voice acting also leans towards that.
Episode 6 synopsis:
- Kaban explains how sandstar low makes friends evil
- Serval feels an emotional connection to Kaban, but can't remember her outright
- She is split between sticking with Kyruru's party and return to Kaban
- Kaban convinces her to go on her new adventure
Serval feels deja-vu, but does not really remember Kaban. Caracal realizes this, but Kaban who in turn is about to cry, tells her it's ok and just leave like this.
Kaban lives in a walled compound where she keeps track of ceruleans and beasts, aka the possessed friends.
It's the darkest episode so far, mostly about the looming threat.
Caracal has no right to be this cute.
Kyruru has a nightmare and the birds drag him into the ocean.
Serval takes revenge on the japari bus who once tried to kill her.
Yeah, the blue/cold colour theme, the voice acting, the hairstyle, and the complete lack of bust are pretty telling he's a boy.
I might be wrong though, but can't see any other reason for the choice of design but for him to be a boy. He even acts a bit more distant to other characters, just like male characters do, he isn't actively joining the activities even those what he thinks up.
No new friends introduced this week, meh.
>sassy owls are now house niggers and science Friends
Never expected Professor to be preparing tea and cooking. Gave me a hearty chuckle, and Assistant to stare at Kyururu to eat his hamburgers.
They're gonna kill that sea monster (yamato ceruleum?) which was the one who attacked serval and kaban at sea. This recovers serval's memories. You read it here first.
I never liked cast bloating shit anyways.
It's fine when you don't have a lot of characters to work with, but that's no longer the case here.
PPP, Margay, Fennec and Raccoon are making an obvious comeback, and maybe the Hunter trio, at least to hold back against Tiger. I would like to see more maritime Friends, if the climax will now be against sea Ceruleans.
Who was pulling the strings of armadillo and pangolin? Was it the owls?
Next episode is penguinsluts. Will grape-kun show up?
Ghost related, my home is haunted.
>kadokawa shills on 8ch
You fool, I am Kadokawa himself.
>they want the killing bites crowd
The only audience they really got this season are the shotacons.
It's back to self contained episodes, the main plot hasn't progressed in the slightest way.
The whole episode is a Road Runner reference, but feels stale because it recycles yet another rivalry situation. Cheeta vs Road Runner and Bloomers.
Bloomers is a good character. But the japari tractor steals the scene.
I don't understand how they can play an episode with an idea like this to be so not-fun.
Everything was so predictable and a chore, interactions repetitive, and (once again) so not "Friends-ish" at all, just regular bitchy rivalry, and the cerulean also had no threatening presence at all.
Not to mention, as much as I loved Roadrunner's spats, and the antelope's bloomers, those "paid" clothes seriously don't fit in the universe, while Cheetah's was plain boring.
No charm, no innocence, no intriguing mystery, paired with what appears to be a shota lead without any presence, this series really blows.
The light inside has broken, but I still work.
This was the PPP episode. They make a point of pronouncing PehPahPuh, and not PeePeePee.
Tanuki was cute, Serval is hired as rodeo clown for the show.
They finally arrested him.
good riddance, wouldn't want preggo frens
>wouldn't want preggo frens
what's wrong with you?
Aha, what a weeb BBRAPP
Why aren't friends butt naked, like all animals?
Because they were made to entertain families at an amusement park, in Japan.
>wouldn't want preggo frens
>not periodically dumping fat, hot loads into your frens with the purpose of making little frens
Not everyone is going to reject it out of hand if for no other reason that brand recognition.
It was Dog who ordered Kyruru kidnapped, because she wanted to play with a human.
The japari tractor can be controlled remotely, like in Knight Rider.
Caracal is rapidly going yandere.

last 2 would benefit greatly from long hair; they look vaguely manish
first 2 remind me of seeu
Cat-girl designs are some of the best and birds are the worst. Cat girls get ears and a colour scheme to match the animal they are based on. Birds get a dead bird on their head and clothing that has nothing to do with their animal.
Is Shoebill among the worst designs?
I appreciate they wanted to differentiate them a bit, but losing the green eyes is a net loss.
There were good birds in S1, like Toki and Shoebill, and recently I also liked Road Runner. But when they do overdesign one, it's beyond absurd.
Should have clarified I'm talking about S2 not S1.
> Birds get a dead bird on their head
Should have made them "angels" instead
Shoebill was already overdoing it. The yellow beak is excessive, and looks like a dead bird hat.
Blue kid fell off a cliff.
Passenger Pigeon was one of the rare ara friends, like Hippo. The rest were the Widowbirds, Pig, Snake and Octocyon.
Kaban realizes that the drawings left behind by the kid are actually transforming into evangelion monsters.
I disagree with that. If Shoebill didn't have the yellow she'd just be a load of gray.
Pig girls maintain being among the cutest of a cast at least.
Not sure about the details, but it is implied that the few surviving humans are now on a space station, and domestic dog has something related to them locked in a safe at home.
So did the first kaban just die or some shit
What are you talking about she is in S2 she is even older.
I studied stem, you know.
In the previous episode, the kid fell off a cliff: now he gets rescued immediately, so much for tension.
Kaban packs all friends of S2 into cattle cars for her final solution.
Some fighting in the last few minutes.
In the end it failed to deliver the big battle it promised.
Need Cerulean porn.
Final episode tomorrow. Here is a discarded design for a dachsund version of Dog, evidently too good to be on this show.
I'm not sure whether this is a redesign of Koala or not. Still nice.
S2 is over, but the last two episodes were lackluster and disastrously so in comparison with S1's finale.
Several plot points are left unanswered, in particular the big bad showed up and immediately left.
Overall the season seems hellbent not to give fans what they want. No reunion between Kaban and Serval. No happy ending for Dog.
Serval was introduced in the first episode as being amnesiac, and always talking about her lost human friend. This has been dropped. Now Kaban asks her if she remember their team, she runs after her, but nothing is solved outside of a couple tears shed.
It's not even explained what the fuck was wrong with Tiger, in 'beast mode'. As for Dog, she rummages through ancient papers by Kyruru and that's it.
Final nail in the coffin: after the failed reunion with Kaban and Serval, they played the S1 OP which was incredibly dissonant in tone. My 2c on this season: the average episode was fun, some of the designs were cool, but all the pivotal story moments were fucked big time.
I'm disappointed that there's no Cerulean girl porn.
so she's dead right
What a poor season. The writing was so bad. First episodes were just all the same with their template style and the last few episodes didn't make any sense and leave many questions open. What about the under water volcano? What was the point with the drawings? What's the deal with the tiger? Whole thing felt like bad fan fic written by a 14yo.
That went downhill fast. At first I thought it was just a worse version of s1, but the retarded nonsensical and unresolved plot combined with a general feeling of sleaziness really ruined the show as it continued. Honestly I didnt expect it to be this bad, how did they fuck it up so badly?
First episodes were fine, same with the random stories of cute girls doing animal things. Outside of the Tatsuki hystericals, you'll see no one complaining about the dolphins or road runner episode.
What S2 failed spectacularly at, was developing the main plot. In the beginning, it looked like there was none and we were stuck with a Friends of the week format. Then they introduced Kaban, Dog and the dopplegangers and every single one was a big letdown. Not only didn't the story advance at all, but you were left with an eerie feeling of bait and switch: because each plot point had an obvious resolution (Serval remembering Kaban, Dog reuniting with Kiururu, ship cerulean being defeated) but they consciously and maliciously dodged each.
Seems like the nips rightfully hated the final.
