So here we are. It's been two years since Kemono Friends aired. It's been one year and a half since Grape-kun died for our sins, and it's been zero weeks since Kadokawa barfed all over the Friends. Unsurprisingly, tumors made man are trying to defend the resulting filth.


The third episode seems like it will finally make it take off, but I'll be cautiously optimistic; I want to see what they meant about the sea being upset and the shadowy figure employing the detectives. Doesn't mean that I forget that we're not ever gonna get Serval and Kaban reaching the island. They should've bought the rights for Kaban, because I'm really not feeling this Kyururu thing.

Kyururu best girl.



>kemurikusa is fucking dead

Kemono Friends didn't need Tatsuki to survive.

The opposite not so much.



Survive, maybe, but it will hardly regain any momentum. A mildly successful series that should've been wildly successful, and Tatsuki is doing a series with milquetoast reaction. This sucks.

>They should've bought the rights for Kaban

They do have the rights for Kaban, that Tatsuki/YYZ have the rights for Kaban is a false rumour.

She appears in recent merchandising, she is owned by Kadokawa.

The Japari Cafe 2 album, released in December 2017, months after the split of YYZ and Kadokawa.

The third volume of the KF anthology released in December 2018, Kaban is on the cover.

And according to what I hear from the anons who play Pavilion, there are mystery lines in the game, which are very likely from Kaban. Additional mystery lines were added as recent as December 2018.

Kaban not appearing in season 2 is a plot point. The shadow figure might even be Kaban, they made an effort to hide the seiyuu. In the credits, shadow figure is listed as ???? voiced by ????.

>I'm really not feeling this Kyururu thing.

I said this in the last thread, but personally I like him more than Kaban. He was in the park, before it the apocalypse hit. Certain places/events cause his memories to resurface, the destroyed underwater stage made him remember the applause of the audience, which allowed him to create the toys for the marine Friends.



>I said this in the last thread, but personally I like him more than Kaban.

I really don't see how.



Thanks for clearing that about Kaban. I prefer Kaban because how she progressed from a meek weak (apparent) human to someone better but without being a sudden superhuman. Her curiosity, intuition and human intelligence that sparked when she figured out how to help the friends was really endearing to me, and overall I really like her design. Kyururu is the more common kind of amnesiac, but the thing that turns me off is the whole "nah, I'm a human, not a friend" schtick. I would've instead covered the "I don't know what I am" but still have the human intelligence and remembering things by looking at the sketchbook. I don't like the design, if only because of the dumb french fries hair, everything else is fine. His/her personality is another detail, I cannot recall many memorable moments coming from Kyururu, while Kaban had DON'T EAT ME and how skittish she was. I can only recall Kyururu wanting to go home and that being at home feels fucking good.



It's obvious that Kaban is going to show up, eventually. And you will be saying that you called it since the first episode, that her reappearance was stupidly banal.

I say Kaban and Kyururu represent either two facets of Mirai, or Kaban actually created Kyururu ejaculating in her hat.


File: 9fd0aec2d3a878c⋯.jpg (62.61 KB, 640x480, 4:3, original_kaban.jpg)


Kyururu is a girl. Neither has much characterization, but at least compared to Kaban she doesn't fucking scream all the time.

One thing that's worth mentioning about Kemono Friends 2, but gets lost in all the noise from the few Tatsuki fundamentalists, is that every episode has a play moment. MC and friends just play around like little kids for 5 minutes. It's very soothing.



>I really don't see how.

Simple, I didn't like Kaban. Never felt attached to her, or found her interesting.

Her motivation was to find humans because she is a human. She doesn't even know what a human is, but was still ready to leave all the Friends behind for an unclear goal.

It's not about her as an individual, but the group she belongs to. Human must find humans, because human.

Kyururu's journey is about "him" finding out who "he" is. He tries to find his house, because it's the only thing he remembers.

Besides his scrambled memories, his sketchbook is the only clue he has. It's about who he is, and not about what he is.


>but the thing that turns me off is the whole "nah, I'm a human, not a friend" schtic

I liked that scene, it establishes that Kyururu remembers some basic knowledge. And Caracal came almost instantly to the conclusion that Kyururu is a human.



What if Kyururu is a cerulean and the final episode is Kaban coming back and smashing her with a torch.



>doesn't scream all the time

She did that less and less as the series went on and became a running gag with Serval or other Friend surprising her. She's a meek, unarmed teen construct in an unknown land, being defensive and willing to go in flight mode is addequate, and this weak disposition helped the Friends to show their innate skills, and also to show how she handled far better at thinking for solutions. If she were an Ubermensch in some days that would've been jarring, and would've clashed with the innocence and message of "we're all good at different things". Can't really show how good you are at something if there's a teen athlete with innate charisma, combat skills and high IQ.

Meanwhile, I find Kyururu to just be a very patient kid that is waiting for this whole adventure thing to end and for the cute animal caretakers to take it home. Maybe it'll grow on me just like Kaban, but I'll see, at least it looks like the good stuff is about to happen.



>because she is a human

She's a human Friend, a construct, not a human-human. Her drive to find other people could be because we're social beings, and the innate curiosity and quest for self.

>serval and the others are really kind and helpful

>but I'm not like them, I'm not strong like lion or fast like thoroughbred

>the sassy owl told me I'm a human, what's a human? are there more like me? What do they eat? Are they faster and stronger than me?

>I have to know, I need to know

She didn't start thinking "I must search for humans". Serval told her that if she didn't know what kind of Friend she was, she should ask the egghead. When told, she became driven, it gave her a purpose, now that she reached the library and found she's a (kinda) human. And then, if she then knew she's a human Friend, that could've made it interesting, like having second doubts about meeting real humans because she's not fully human.

So what kind of friend is she?


Kemono's problems are the inverse for the most part of Kemurikusa. Kemurikusa has worse main character with Wakaba who is a vehicle for "what's that" and exposition and Kemono has just an uninteresting character with Kyururu who's following a path already traveled. The extra character with Serval, Karacol, seems pointless since she's mostly copying Serval's reaction 80% of the time. Kemurikusa has better directorial showcasing with angles and shots of the environment which Kemono 2 just seems to lack when looking between them. It also has better foreshadowing in each episode.

Kemurikusa lacks wider interaction since it's only just those 7 characters in a post apocalyptic world throughout so far. Kemono 2 just has been mostly faking having fun per episode.Kemono, up until the end of 3, lacked progression into a bigger story and subtleness to it. They have done fun stuff before in the first season, but had an underlying hint of a greater and maybe darker story as it progressed. The character designs for 50% of the Friends are too obvious in design. They are suppose to represent their animal and be recognizable but it looks so 1:1 and generic that they are not interesting to look at. Compare Serval's hair to the other Friend's hair in 2 and you'll see what I mean. Even the robot guide in the first had more heart to it than this soulless, almost retread of the first season. Even though Kemono boast smoother graphics than Kemurikusa, it has worse motion animation (when characters turn) and terrible texturing for the Cerulean enemies.

Between Kemurikusa and Kemono 2, both have a lot of bad points to them. Kemurikusa seems like its going somewhere after leaving the island but has a worse main character with Wakaba. Kemono 2 feels slightly enjoyable but doesn't seem to have anywhere to go until the ending of the recent episode 3. Has a better third party cast but even the fun it presents feels fake at times. It's really a coin toss for me whether one is better than the other. Might have to wait when both series to end to assess the damage.

About the overdesigned new models, particularly for the head: half of the models seen so far, were the same from the pre-S1 game. I guess... caracal, donkey, giant panda, dolphin, armadillo and pangolin.

While the other half of the models is either new, or upgraded versions of old designs. Just to point out that people who were familiar with the games, knew of this issue: there's a threshold between 'normal' friends with plain designs, and 'gacha' friends that look much more elaborated.



Yeah, some anon in a previous thread posted old and new sloth. The problems with the new designs were really apparent there.

>The problems with the new designs were really apparent there.

The new designs are in line with the old ones, of the high tier. Friends always used to look like pic related, it's just that very few detailed ones appeared in S1 (white rhino, shoebill?).

It's the first thing you notice in the game: below there's a normal tier with a fuckload of Serval and Red Fox variations; above in the gacha tier, everything is frilly and overdesigned.



>Watching the new season at all

Fuck off, you're part of the problem.

Caracal is there to serve as the secondary protagonist to Serval because it seems like they wanted someone like Boss there but that would have been too similar to the first season. It might be for the best, so far Kyururu is less of a character and more of a plot device that moves Serval and Caracal towards more friends. Her only motivation for going on this trip and her defining trait has come from that sketchbook.

Overall I think I prefer the new Walrus design just a little bit more than the old one, though the tusk double edged scythe looked cool. She does have a bit of fanart of her new design, any of the two designs is goddamn sexy. The seals/sea lions are one of the sexiest group of Friends.

Glad to see a bat finally appear. Had it been Honduran White Bat or Brown Long-eared Bat, that would've given me diabeetus. Also,

>they arrived to spic territory and the railroad is out of service



>they ran away because she looked and acted scary

Being Bat is suffering. Wished she appeared more, and now I'm expecting loner fanart of her.

Aardwolf had quite an alluring, breathy voice and was adorable, though her eyes being so separated made her look a bit wonky. Caracal acts like a tsundere love interest, and was funny how the detectives curled up in defensive maneuvers all night, I thought Pangolin was gonna be more of a fighter. Wonder if the human will be Kaban or just a friend impersonating a human, like Arai-san with the old hat.



I like the design they ended up going with, the wings looks more visually interesting compared to the newer version.

The show would be exactly the same, if Serval wasn't there: at least shippers would have something to work with. It's weird: Caracal is the new Serval, and Serval is a sound effect.



I feel the same way. By removing Serval's buttmonkey moments, it leaves her with much except her friendly, chipper attitude.

Serval is only there because of the plot. They clearly plan to connect S1 and S2, and we will learn about the fate of Kaban. But since we didn't reach the parts of the story where Serval plays an important role, she's just feeling like an unecessary addition.

Also, since nobody posted it. Here's the first image of the Orca/Killer Whale Friend.



She looks more like a monstergirl than a Friend.

I hate this new season. None of the friends feel like animals and nothing is happening. Serval seems like she suffered brain damage since the first season. Its so boring, I hate it. Even Caracal says what we are all thinking.



I wonder what her personality is like, I think I remember the two friends from the ocean episode mentioning her.



Yes, they also wanted to invite her to play. I want to think she's more aloof or aggressive, like an ocean Brown Bear, grumpy and distant because she's always in fight mode because the ocean is upset. Maybe the final Cerulean here would be a giant sea Cerulean, but there aren't many seafaring Friends except for them and the penguins.

That isn't love, just friendship. That is "high five". No sane person would give a high five at first date.


Kadokawa has made Kemo Pals better than ever by giving Schlotsky, funny name good sandwich, the axe.


>Wonfes didn't even have any Kemono friends figures

They are really not backing this it seems.



The artstyles would clash between the old Nendoroids and the new ones, that's one. Maybe they're waiting to see if it sells well as well as Kemono Friends 3, but being aired at winter and having to wait until Wonfes summer to announce something is a bad idea. I only wanted an army of Figmas and the dopey bus to go along with it, YYZ artstyle or Mine, no problem which.



The season is being boycotted and reviewbombed, so it's not unlikely there won't be much merch in production. But then what, will the series original team be reinstated or will it finally die off?


Good episode, I even laughed at some parts.

Gorilla was just Lion 2.0 though and I'm curious what they're going to do with that

And Mine said, "let there be Bag", and there was Bag.


I'm glad Kaban is back and wasn't swept under the rug. My only real complaint about the episode is how the panthers and the crocs jobbed to Serval and Caracal. They made you understand in first season that Serval is weak compared to larger predators or prey, so a goddamn alligator or a panther shouldn't be this pitifully weak compared to her or Caracal .


It feels like they're bringing back Kaban just to make up for all of the other characters being so boring. We're almost halfway through the season and we haven't even had any good meme-girls yet.


Nothing wrong with Kemono Friends S2 so far, they even brought Kaban back, it's like nothing bad really happened.



I wonder where they're going with her. If she remains as parte le the cast, that would be neat but there would be the looming dread of "wise older mentor sacrifices for the pupil" at some point. All things considered, taking this route after all the fiasco was probably the best choice, make her return and older and stronger, and not as a skeleton of a last-second cameo. But her returning not even halfway kinda makes her look restrained if they're gonna have comfy adventures instead of some difficulty, though the rabid tigress could be a new danger.

When are the penguins and Arai-san gonna appear?



I really like Kaban's new design, she has this more experienced aura. And for some reason her design gives me Digimon protagonist vibes, she only lacks the googles.


>instead of some difficulty

There will be certainly some difficulty, the unaddressed plot points are:

1. Kaban's and Serval's past.

2. The "upset" ocean

3. Kyruru's house and past

4. Tiger, who looks like she's been corupted by a cerulean.

5. The mysterious person who send the Armadillos after Kyruru.

With only 7 episodes left, there isn't any time for comfy adventures.



>she only lacks the googles.

And the freakishly large hands and feet.



>I wonder where they're going with her.

She leaves at the end of next episode, then returns at the end of the penultimate of the season for some big battle.



Except that the models are worse, the animation is worse, and more importantly, most episodes and characters are dull. They actually tried to make it very similar to S1 in terms of content, and now it's essentially the same, only more boring.



Do you think yourself on reddit, you cur?



>All caps


>You sir, are a scholar and a gentleman

Is this the audience for nu-Kemofure?


Wait a moment. Serval until now has had a pretty full personality in Season 2, so maybe she'll be back to "normal" eventually with Kahan back. At the same time, Kyururu and Caracal seem to have more moments together, and Caracal has more personality or traits than Serval. Could it mean that, once Serval is back to normal, she'll go back with Kaban, they'll go off to a different path, as a way of symbolizing that they're passing the torch to Kyururu and Caracal? Maybe Kaban and maybe Serval split from the other two and come back for the climax, but now Kaban has duties or works as some kind of guardian like the Brown Bear squad. Then again, there's still the mystery about Kyururu's home. I want to think that Kako, the titty monster scientist, will end up being hi Mom/sister.

I love Kemono Friends and all, but it's disingenuous to praise the old animation and models. We got over it, that's fine. But it's still hell to convince others to look it up, because of the infamously bad tech.



>once Serval is back to normal, she'll go back with Kaban

That makes sense, anon already noticed Caracal seemed to cover all bases alone.

You should be ashamed.


>looks like a nigger



Compared to the older design, she doesn't remind me of a gorila. She reminds me more of a moe cholo girl or street punk. She's very cute anyway. Kinda sad there weren't many animal sounds. Also, Harasaki is doing another guro doujin, and if I didn't know who she was, I'd say the cover is actually really cute.



>You should be ashamed.

He really shouldn't be. Gifs are almost a lost art these days.



webms don't display properly on my computer unless I open them whereas gifs show up just fine, so I, for one, still appreciate the artform that are gifs.

Everything you see hanging on the basic human figure of a friend, is a psychic emanation from the protoplasm making their body. They are essentially psycho-reactive lifeforms, not unlike the ghostbusters ooze. These emanations include clothes, animal parts like ears and tails, and dicks.

Kaban is advantaged thanks to her human nervous system (actually, mimicry of), enabling her more advanced psychic projections, such as a stronger dick.


>Ceruleans from the water

Didn't water kill them?

That seemed like a very final episode for Kaban. I don't think we'll see her again.



I'm sure she'll be back when they try to 1up S1's ending.

Serval lost her memories in a cerulean attack, probably linked to the new mysterious threat. Meeting up with Kaban gave her mild discomfort, but didn't trigger the memories back after all.



>ceruleans appearing near the ocean

>the owls think it's impossible for them to be coming from the ocean because ceruleum only comes from volcanoes

>they have a book about underwater volcanoes

>the owls haven't read their own book

>they need someone to come along and do in an hour what they've been spending a long time researching

>also the ceruleum activates for no reason

Pretty shit episode.


This is honestly really depressing.

Season 1 ended in such an optimistic way but this now implies that Serval "died" shortly afterwards.

This isn't tanoshii at all



Remember when Tatsuki pretended they had fired him because his ideas were too dark? When it was really because the idiot gave away company assets for free, and STILL he refused to admit his mistakes when given a second chance.


File: d1b201208c7a63a⋯.jpg (30.74 KB, 293x481, 293:481, fuck off, newfaggot.JPG)


He never pretended that. Pretty much all he did was say "I'm fired" on twitter.

I guess lying on the internet is just fun for some people.



>japanese corporations

>giving second chances

Decent episode, but expected something better. I really thought something would trigger Serval's memories but stayed mildly confused. Still choked up at her telling Caracal to take care of Serval while she held back her tears. Maybe Kaban retrieved amnesiac Serval and tried for months or years to help her remember to no avail, and finally let her free in the savanna to never bother her and start a new life, though it wouldn't sound like something Kaban would do.

Kind of stupid how they've been studying for who knows how long, but never thought or read about underwater volcanoes, or even heard from some Friend mentioning these volcanoes; I won't diss Kyururu because he's been underwater but still makes me think why Kaban never did somehow. Supposing they've been tracking down strong Ceruleans next to the coast, you'd think maritime Friends or a sea fowl Friend would've told them "there's this big, bright hot thing below the water!"


Really underwhelmed at how they handled Kaban. Even if she doesn't have strong physical qualities compared to other Friends, she only used her airplane and drove the bus. Spending months or years studying the strong Cerulean could've translated into having either a) better physical qualities in case they needed to run away, act as a diversion or something else, or b) invented/picked up some basic weapon for disposing off weak Ceruleans, or another weapon aside from the paper airplanes.

Maybe she's been more of a scientist and researcher, and she isn't a full human for her to be more of an intelligent adventurer, but she felt like a sitting duck during the Cerulean fight. I didn't expect Friend Jesus, but they could've done better to make her feel like a more seasoned, cunning adventurer and researcher, not someone who couldn't figure out undersea volcanoes.

The matter with Serval's memory is not over yet, it's intended as foreshadowing and motivation. Really the same as when they showed Bag's blurred face in episode 1, and yet people didn't expect they would bring her back ('this is proof of a soft reboot').

If the series has 12 episodes, then we are entering a second arc: full comedy for 5 episodes, then a direct continuation of this drama. I guess Bag will return and reveal the submarine cerulean had attacked them at sea, and destroying it will free the memories or something.



Tatsukifags are SJWeebs. They're literally calling the new studio a 'class traitor', because they realized it was bad optics to accuse them for the evils of Kadokawa. Imaginary ones of course, since they acted like any normal employer and fired a dickhead who was giving away corporate assets for free.

And Tatsuki WAS given a second chance: after plenty of fan lamentations, Kadokawa renewed their offer and held new talks. But the idiot primadonna refused, because deep down he's just a little shit after his own profit, and the rest of the guys working on the project mean nothing to him.


File: d6fae099dcdfa2a⋯.jpg (41.09 KB, 500x500, 1:1, DZDt2yfVQAAxgsG.jpg)

I wasn't quite expecting a "Everything you know about how everything works in this universe is wrong" episode.

Also Siberian Tiger can get fucked, I guess, unless Kyururu divines a way to fix her.


I can't believe Serval is fucking dead.


The most entertaining part about the episode is Kaban taking the sassy owls, and now they're sassy cooks as well as science Friends. I was expecting Professor to tell her that she's tired and it's her turn to cook and make tea.

Now that Margay's episode is next, what will they do with Gen? During the roll call in the OP, you can't hear her saying her name, and she's absent in the real life concerts. Trouble with the agency or something else? Would be weird to have her standing around saying nothing, or will they have another seiyuu filling in for her few lines?



7/10, low impact but I can't tell if you are just trolling or actually insane.


This was the best episode yet, but through very little merit of its own. And it still wasn't good.

I was starting to wonder if it was just nostalgia goggles, but I checked, and the animation really was better in S1. Especially the fight scene in this episode was so lazy and wonky, S1's fight scenes weren't well animated either, but at least there was some planning and a variation of movements and attacks used. A lot of what made S1 look better all around was the planning, much greater variety in shots used, movements; S2 is really stiff and visually boring in comparison.



Anon, I know you idealized Tatsuki like some sort of underdog hero but that's history.

1. Tatsuki was fired for violating copyrights, when he released episode 12.1 without company permission.

2. The resulting campaign led Kadokawa to hold new talks with Tatsuki in january 2018. He did not agree with their terms and refused to direct Season 2.

Some hero you got: all that trouble to give a thief another chance, and he squandered all because of his ego. Why ego, you might ask? Because we now know it wasn't about his artistic direction, since the new series tries to mimic his dark undertones too. But please! Keep exalting the weasel like the second coming of Christ.



Why are you so buttmad though?



On this site we have a thing for fake victims.

It sucks. I hate it. All this happy music playing around Kaban and Serval and all I can think is how horrifying the whole situation is.

The music in this season is especially egregious. It uses a lot of the same songs from the first season, but they feel totally mismatched with the tone of what is actually happening.
