Though we bid farewell to goodbye to Japari Park, a return trip is on the horizon!
Earlier today, the Kemono Friends anime staff announced that a “new video project” was greenlit for production. The team unveiled a new visual to celebrate the news:
Additional details on the project will be revealed in the near future on the official Kemono Friends website and Twitter account.
Kemono Friends is based on Nexon’s smartphone game of the same name. TATSUKI directed the show at Yaoyorozu, with Shigenori Tanabe (Danchi Tomoo) writing and overseeing the show’s scripts. Sgt. Frog creator Mine Yoshizaki is credited with the original character concept designs.
Crunchyroll streamed Kemono Friends as it aired in Japan. They describe the show as:
About The story takes place in Japari Park, an enormous integrated zoo built somewhere in this world. A mysterious substance found there, called “Sand Star,” causes the animals to turn into humanoid beings called “Animal Girls”! These new creatures spend every day peacefully with the zoo’s visitors… but after some time, a lost child turns up in the park. The child’s attempt to find the way home turns into a great adventure with the Animal Girls!
Concept designer Mine Yoshizuki revealed that the project will continue after today’s finale. Furthermore, TV Tokyo’s “AniTele” app will receive original content starting April 1.
