The anime's story takes place in Japari Park, a "gigantic integrated zoo." In the zoo, due to the mysterious "sand star" substance, the animals start turning into human-shaped creatures called Animal Girls. Japari Park is a place where many people visit and have fun at, but one day a lost child wanders into the park. The lost child starts a journey to return, but because so many Animal Girls join in on the quest it becomes an unexpected grand adventure.

Kemono Friends is a fun journey that isn't really directed to any of those who voted for the anime. It is clearly a kid's show that attempts to teach some animals' facts and give a little bit of fun. It had a little bit of dark side that adults can enjoy speculating about which isn't really confirm yet.
The story can be as simple as a lost child running into different animal girls with very variations of behaviors but they all are very cute. Or a little bit serious as some speculated that this is set in the future where humans went extinct or something which read more

MAL rating 4.94?
20 mins per episode?
What's up with all this art and memes on the internet?
That CG is terrible yo..

I rarely write reviews but I wanted to help people decide whether to check this out or not because that rating doesn't do it justice.

/ So About That CG

First off, most people are getting a bad impression from the CG. I can understand where people are coming from about this. The chase scene in the first episode definitely did not make a good impression on me ( it was the worst scene out of the entire series so far). But after that, I got used to read more

This anime is not for everyone. It's an anime for children and adults, but not for teenagers.

This is an anime that is a lot more enjoyable if you know about it's roots. Is based on a mobage produced by Nexon. It was part of a crossmedia project that sadly failed. The game closed a month before the show aired.

The creators of this anime weren't expecting to make something huge. They are a very small team with a very limited budget from a game that failed.

And this is how everything starts. With a poorly animated first chapter, some novice seiyuu and low expectations from the creators read more

Its strange.

Its very strange.

The plot is very simple. The anime can't do anything but show a story about wandering around meeting new animals.

The art is kinda boring and not really detailed.

The sound is fine.

The characters are lame. Very cringe sometimes.

The very fact that they try to make actual anime moments is cringe.

The motion of everything is weird. Sometimes when they fall over its so disapointing.

The purpose of the anime is not satisfaying enough .

I don't know why I'm watching it.

Maybe watching bad anime is fun because I dont have any high expectations

I don't recommend it.

It annoying that this has more views that the new Precure read more
