this series is awesome, never I imagined from moe shit into something good and dramatic (eps 11). What most memorable for me is the opening song ofc. So sugoii and tanoshiii.

For those who havent watch it, dont watch this shows in a row, it may kill your brain cell, but hey its worth it

Heartwarming and adorable. An 8/10 for me.

The character designs were fab, but that animation! The PPP dancing sequence was particularly awful, but overall I did not mind it.

Legit shed a tear when Boss tried to say its last goodbyes to Kaban and Serval..
Luckily, Mirai water-proofed the little fella (because its projection thingy was malfunctioning)

Kemono Friends has the ugliest animation from its season, but it ironically became the most comfy anime of winter 2017.

After the first episode of this show, there was no way I was going to like it. No way at all. And yet, at the end of episode 12, I've actually found that I enjoyed it the whole way through, didn't find myself spacing out at any point, and was fully engrossed in the mystery and the world surrounding the characters.

The writing, particularly the dialogue, is not top tier and borders on overly cliche sometimes, but what made KF fun for me is the great pacing in revealing the story and the fact that in every episode the characters are always doing/accomplishing something (not a lot of boring/vague exposition like 95% of anime adaptations). I feel like the show did have more to say beyond just being a cute, fun show, so ultimately it's that underlying depth that really made it for me. 7/10

Serval is awake.
Lucky talked to Serval.
What kind of rule is that? You make it look like Lucky is an asshole.

Oh shit! All the Friends came! All my waifu Friends came! AAAAAAAAH! Dat OP song!

Lion! LMAO at Lion.
Silver Fox!
Dat Brown Bear finsher!
Kaban made that Paper Plane.
Kaban is back!
LUCKY!!!!!!!
Lucky is alive!
Jeez Serval.
Holy shit! A real animal.
Emperor so perfect.
Holy shit at that Kaban birth.
Holy shit at it falling.
Meow power.
WTF! Kaban's hands turned black throughout the episode.
Kaban is super human now.
Damn. Kaban just left and they walked away real quick.
LMAO at Serval and them following Kaban.
A new Friend has appeared.
Dat To be continued.

What an end to an amazing series. I had no interest in watching this when I was looking at what shows of the season to watch. Due to the power of fan art, I changed my mind and decided to watch. I committed a sin, but I corrected it. I'm so glad I did. I got to meet all my waifu Friends (mentioned above). I hope for another season KF in the future.

Lucky hitting Serval with the bus and everyone started laughing still gets me.

This show went so under the radar at the start of the year. Not really because the art so much, but because it just seemed too kiddie for me, like something aimed at a younger audience.

Turns out I was an idiot. Of course, I noticed all the buzz about it, and decided to watch it last week. Glad I did!

The characters were cute and likeable, and the story pretty interesting and thought out. I also love the concept of an anime with educational undertones such as this one. Pretty nice all around!

Well, maybe another animated project (a second season of course) in these series, with the same quality of characters and plot, but with a more consistent animation quality, and we've got ourselves another winner :)

Fantastic episode! Heartwarming, action, good screentime for all the characters, character development, and a pretty satisfying conclusion (Though there were still mysteries) . It definitely ended up being a solid show.

Also I just wanna say holy shit Lion was particularly badass here.

Wow, they really came hard with those cliches/tropes in this episode. I'm so glad that they were all really nicely executed (these are the things I live for ^^). I was tearing up so hard that I barely could watch the whole episode in one go.

Easily the most charming thing I've witnessed. CGI and voice acting weren't the best, but they certainly added something to the whole experience. Everything else was really well done and it's pretty clear that alot love went into making this.

Such a memorable little show.

They show a real animal in there, yeah, but that actually had total downer implications. The animal was shown at the site of the first battle with a large cerulean -- at the savanna gate, where they heard a scream right before the fight. Confirming that, yeah, a friend did indeed get eaten just before they arrived =(

Gggggghhhhhhh... This anime... This anime PISSES ME OFF. To think I would end up coming back here after dropping it like a rock half way through the first episode. I jumped ship before it sailed and watched it crash and burn on a small island far away from me... And then I looked back and saw the passengers of said ship having a pretty good time... Like, what the heck.

I had never regretted throwing caution to the wind and watching a completely random anime on Gogoanime as much as I did when I clicked on this. I hoped to never see this again, yet there were seemingly tons of people enjoying it... AND THEN IT HAD THE NERVE TO SHOW UP EVERYWHERE I WENT AFTERWARDS. Literaly everywhere in some shape or form.

*Sigh* The fact that I'm here obviously means I caved into the pressure and gave it a second go... and I liked it... thats a bit of an understatement because I plan to change my score to an 8... watched the entire series just now and came straight here afterwards... Don't judge a book by it's cover doesn't quite work here as you have to dig into the book itself to find the gems hidden within its crappy looking pages.

Also that animal that showed up at the end there... right in the feels.
A Wild and Small Otaku has Appeared!

Lucky-san has finally broken his weird silence thing with the Friends for the sake of Kaban. That's nice.

Major Friend ass-kicking teamwork! Didn't see that coming.

Kaban didn't return to her "original form", since she was already a human...guess that clears up any doubt/theory that she could actually be some rare animal species.

There was a brief moment of panic over Lucky-san, but he's alright! Somehow...after Serval panicked and threw his chip back into the ocean. That deadpan moment was pretty great: "Serval. Please don't eat her." A.I. are so easily fooled.

Somehow I knew in the end that Serval and everyone else were going to wind up following Kaban for more adventures. Kaban would get lonely with only Lucky-san!

I don't know if I want a season 2...like, I just want a nice, satisfactory OVA/movie with a higher budget that explains more about humans and gives Kaban the ending she deserves.

I feel like I've been punked. I had dropped this, read rave reviews and then picked it back up. I think my rating went from a 5 to a 6. It's not terrible, it's fairly interesting but in the end it wasn't nearly as satisfying as I had hoped it would be. I was really hoping to have my mind blown with this last episode with brain-wiped characters or something or that sort.

There are a lot of mysteries we still don't have the answer for, like why was Serval crying after seeing the other serval with Mirai-san in ep 10. I don't know if we'll ever get those answers anymore though, with the production staff/Kadokawa bloodbath.

Still, let this season be remembered for having excellent world-building, along with the adorable character designs, all created with a very limited budget. Better animation would have done wonders for it, but I loved the hell out of this show anyway. An adorable series with surprising depth.

Check out the episode 12.1 special (only 3 minutes). It answers who's driving the bus/boat at the end, and why one of the wheels is a different color (visible in ep for like 2 seconds).

LMAO I kinda expect the battery will run out at some point.

Anyway, it's a fun series and despite the ugly animation on episode 1, it's improving per episode. Still, goddammit I want season 2 now!

Nice, Serval cannot resist not following Kaban-chan into the ocean. And some other Friends seem to have come along. they have plenty of supplies anyway. ^^

And it's nice Serval and the others followed. Kaban would have been stuck in the ocean with that empty battery if they did not follow her.

Looking forward to season 2!

10/10

I originally dropped this after one ep when it first came out because the visuals were so bad. Then it seemed to get a buzz, then a cult following, then the whole Grape-kun thing happened.

Now it gets a 2nd season, (wow!) so I went back to see what I missed. Binged the first season over the weekend.

I'm glad I watched it, it's way better than I originally thought, but I can't give it more than 6/10. The CG is awful but maybe that's part of the attraction, like South Park - ?? The story is pretty repetitious, every week they go to a different area and meet new friends and have mild adventures. The ending was also pretty predictable. Still I enjoyed watching it, and I also started on S2.

At least now I don't feel like I am on the outside looking inside the Kemono Friends party.

Kemono Friends is probably the greatest case of going in with no expectations and being positively surprised of all time.

How the song started playing and all the friends appeared was simply hype. Great finale.

Kaban is on her way to search for humans and Serval is coming with her after all. Nice. An inseparable duo.

This anime is truly an anomaly to me.

>The animation is so ridiculous and bad at certain times...and yet that adds to the charm.

>This is clearly meant for kids...and yet it was honestly so much fun to watch no matter how old you are.

>And yes, the finale is cliche as fuck....and yet, I was sooo happy they saved Kaban and that lucky “sacrificed” himself but wasn’t fully gone, and that Serval decides to follow Kaban for more adventures!

This anime was just so wholesome and fun and had an almost inexplicable charm to it that I ended up liking it WAY MORE than I could’ve ever imagined.

9/10
