I don't know what the fuck is going on but that was pretty fucking tanoshi. It's a lot more interesting than I was expecting.

Red, obviously.


Did they change schedule? I thought it was only due tomorrow.


He overdid it with the darker and edgy, now it's no longer special. Let's hope it switches into gear in a few more episodes.

Looking forward for some fan to reshoot the entire episode with KF assets, because all of this is really the offbrand version of KF S2 we never got.

At least it will be better than KF S2



I'm hoping the next episode is brighter, if it's going to be eternally dark and gloomy the emotional impact of any major scenes is just going to be lessened.

Despite adding a fumbling male MC with one of the worse personality types, I came away pretty happy. Tatsuki's good at making likeable characters.



I think his obliviousness came across as being deliberate, rather than just a shittily-written generic MC. He's too dumb and easily distracted for it to not be intentional.

Somebody say red?



Deliberate from the writer or deliberate acting on the character's part?



From the writer. I don't think he'd stop to gawk at a shiny thing while he was being chased by lolis after his blood if he was merely pretending to be retarded.



Yeah, that I agree with. Really went with the flow when they were trying to kill him, too.

This isn't tanoshii.

I liked it overall though, but as others said having the dark and gloominess upfront instead of in the background somewhat lessens what was so special about KF.

Hiya guys, what's going on in this thread?



Why'd you post an image of a bug?


I didn't know this had a male MC. I was promised a "science-fiction action story [that] follows girls who fight with weird entities nicknamed "mushi" (bugs) and survive in a world of red fog".

He was not a pleasant surprise.



They hid it for good reason, no one would have picked it up if they knew it was a crypto-isekai with a retarded male MC.


File: 3f35c6c9c8b7d51⋯.jpg (95.38 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, [Erai-raws] Kemurikusa (TV….jpg)

Rinako ;_;



Too bad Rin is basically the only relevant female character, with the addition of a male protag.



This shit isn't taking the place of KF season 2 right?

Because I really don't need an evangelion deconstruction of cute animal girls in a slightly spooky world, or whatever the fuck this is trying to be.



I don't think it's supposed to be related to KF in any way, it's an original story. They're only animal girls because kemonomimi are cute.



>They're only animal girls because kemonomimi are cute.

The only "animal" girl was that sick tree lady with fox years, you might as well say they look Tohou, because of those lolis.


>This shit isn't taking the place of KF season 2 right?

We all know that the true season 2 was Killing Bites.



It was really bad. I just turned the subs after a minute and didn't miss anything.


The MC is going be be unbearable if it doesn't turn out that he's just pretending to be retarded. His archetype is just horrible, being selfless to the point of stupidity and completely unaware of what's happening around him except for when it's plot convenient. Can the reds not sense heat? What other reason could they have to not figure out that the mist is hotter around bugs? These girls appear to be capable of fairly complex reasoning, so the idea of the MC having the super power of a human brain doesn't work as well as it did in KF.

So far the setting or any of the characters haven''t appealed to me, but hopefully that will change within an episode or two.


I have no problem with Wakaba, but aside from "apparently dumb guy is competent and selfless" trait, the problem is that his voice is somewhat shrill. Had he been voiced in a deeper voice, he would be slightly less annoying. Other detail I noticed is that they never had a silent moment. Between the clones and Mission Control Cat, as well as Wakaba, there was never a quiet moment for you to appreciate or let the setting sink in. It sounded like they were in a hurry to cover a lot of things in the first episode, maybe because they were risking the series not getting greenlit or getting less episodes, but they never kept quiet for a bit. Also, hearing the Bugs' voices and the colors, it's easy to think that it'll turn out that they are mutations from the red girls, so I hope they build something good for that.

I did enjoy the episode and the music is good, but they need to tone down the amount of talking at the very least for you to absorb and observe.



I'm the same poster. The biggest weakness is probably the pacing, because there will be comparisons to KF. A slower pace there was acceptable and welcome because it was sorta like watching a documentary, but for action/adventure, it has to be/could be faster. But it was breakneck speed here, so you couldn't really absorb what's happening because they keep talking, or there's no background shots to show you how fucked the world is. This setting should focus on the characters and the background, but if you only focus on the characters mostly, it will be less engaging.

Still, I pretend to watch all 12 episodes, as well as KF2. For better or worse, I waited 2 years for this, and it will be either closure or the start of more projects or seasons. I don't think Tatsuki is a god, but I don't really want to see him fail, same goes to KF because I want to see more adventures of them.

>Kemono friends aired 2 years ago


Are you really expecting this to be some well written masterpiece? Why? KF wasn't some marvel of story or worldbuilding it was just okay with the majority of it being carried by the cute character interactions.


>actually watching this tier of animation



>Killing Bites

So what's the hype about that crap powerlevel ecchi around some places?




It's a joke I hope


I'll give it the 3 episode rule but wait till all 3 are out first, the main issue seems to be is people want Kemono friends but the kemono friends were the friends we made along the way.



That's why I want to treat them different but as equals as well. As equals because it's the same director and he should be projecting his strengths and what made KF so memorable, but at the same time different because of the genre, characters and setting. If it had simply been Doubutsu Acquaintances as a spiritual sequel with Rucksack-chan and Bobcat-chan on the second island they were supposed to reach, then I could be more critical. Not that the first episode didn't have its flaws, but I'll be a bit lenient for the first episodes. Though it is hard to surprise you with post-apocalyptic stuff when you know his previous work and here it's way less subtle how utterly bleak the setting is. Even if it looked bright and colorful like KF, criticism would now be "he can only do colorful post-apocalyptic stuff".

I was mostly joking, the anime was decent and had some decent fights, the main character also goes from a beta to a badass, though that's immediately after the season ends. The last two episodes, had so many plot twist, I barely could contain my excitement.

Also when it first came out, people jokingly called it Kemono Enemies.



What was Killing Bites about again?



I think the overall premise involved a contest between two parties, victory being granted to the individual possessing the dentition better suited for cutting.


So what does this have to do with smoking?

Kemurikusa is just another reading for tobacco in Japanese(though it's actually kemurigusa). They're growing leaves in their truck and then sucking on them to attack, there's a red green contrast like fresh and dried tobacco leaves, the enemies appear in a red hot mist resembling the tip of a cigarette. I guess it'll make sense once we learn what the tree and the bugs are, but it might be meaningless symbolism too.

The one with the sharpest fangs wins, that's what Kiling Bites is was about.



More people should be given the Van Dyne special for not reading it.



Killing Bites was enjoyable as a guilty pleasure. This shit isn't really high art.


The amazon prime translation is something to behold.


Anyone else drop this show as soon as it turned out to be crypto-Isekai/Harem?


Wait a minute.



>Wakaba is Kaban.


File: e1a12721fa7b1fb⋯.png (26.67 KB, 394x599, 394:599, Wakaba_mark.png)


Wakaba also means new leaves (which fits with the title of the show). It is also the name of the mark for new car drivers.

I like it, it feels like Kemono Friends if it was made in a shadow mirror universe. Clearly it's darker, yet the elements are there. The characters are simple but earnest, there is promise of exploring a world since the reds only know about an island so far, there is mistery in why the hell te akamushi have such human screams, and Wakaba is pretty much a mix of Kaban and Serval.

Also the color palette is striking, but I can see how this wouldn't be to everyone's taste. I didn't see this first episode as a guarantee this is going to be gold, but it's a better setup than KF episode 1, and lord knows it's better than KF2 episode 1. I definitely want to know more.



>and Wakaba is pretty much a mix of Kaban and Serval.

Except he's a boy.



I'll take a boy over the vague bullshit that is Kyururu. Can't say I'm a fan of the prospect of muh romance, I'll admit.



That didn't bother me as much as this just being grimdark KF. I understand this work came before KF but I wasn't really impressed. Kemono probably stood out as much as it did because of the contrast between the seemingly cute setting and the disturbing events behind it all.

This is just dark chuunishit with bad CG, which is a shame since I was hoping Kadakowa would get BTFO.


The bugs are going to turn out to be former humans, aren't they?



Of course they are. This is anime.
