Why this show need to be CGI turd?

It would be glorious if animated traditional way.
>>
>>153582531
Because no budget, this studio has something like 10 people working at it. I doubt this show will cost them more than 250k to produce, can't make a 12 ep anime with traditional animation for that.

It would explain why the ending had abandoned amusement parks. They tried to control the Sandstar and failed, causing the volcano eruption and creation of the Ceruleans. They abandoned it and placed a No-Fly Zone over it and left it for decades.

Now Kaban-chan will help the Friends fix up the park and get a message off the (presumed) island to contact civilization. In the future she is then Mirai (which means future) who is the main guide to the park for everyone to enjoy it with the Friends.

What if they are all dead? What if this is actually Heaven?
Boss is God, ceruleans are angels that transport human and animal souls between their personal paradises.
This one is made in the form of a safari park and designed for the souls of wild animals and adventurous little girls.
There are extinct animals and even mythical creatures born from the human collective unconscious.
They don't need to think about getting food, they can fall from tremendous heights and still be alive and well, they are just having たのしーい with friends all day every day.

In the final episode, when Kaban-chan finishes her spiritual quest, she will leave the Japari Park and reincarnate.
Serval will reincarnate as her cat.
Beaver and Prairie Dog will be expelled from paradise for being homos.

It didn't catched my eye at the start of the season, it looked like a kid-show (the CGI didn't help eather), but it got popular, and I wanted to know why and maybe watch it when it ends.

Low quality cgi works better for this kind of show. It's just like Toho and Ship girls. The original art is so shitty that people want to draw their own art.

People don't get bothered by CGI. Only wannabe-hipsters who fell for the sakuga-meme by a tiny circlejerk talking about it all the time in their hugbox would get offended by it.

Is she my friend?
>>
>>153590603
It has nothing to do with "the sakuga-meme" all the sakuga fags are into it too. It is about casuals that think anything containing CGI is awful rather than accepting the show isn't trying to be the best looking thing in the world ever and being able to enjoy it for what it presents. So ingrained in the casual western fanbase is the hatred of CG that the majority literally cannot look past it. They think CG is bad because it is CG. Anyone reasonable doesn't have a problem with CG it is when the CG elements obviously clash with the 2D elements when they are trying to blend them together that thoughtful people hate.

I just started watching, got through all released episodes. This show is so fucking comfy holy shit I love how rock fucking stupid the Friends are, and not even in a mean way. Seeing a kid help solve their problems in Post Apocalyptic Zoo is so cute WHO IS THE PROFESSOR WHY DID THEY MORPH INTO WAIFUS WHY DOES SHOE-CHAN KNOW WHAT A HUMANS IS

I have so many questions but I dread the show taking a darker turn. 100% cutesy Friends helping each other with extremely dark undertones that are never addressed is the kind of gap Moe I never knew I wanted

They probably expect that westerners won't like it at all, by comparing data of viewers with that of shows that were also made in 3DCG. Their investment in the show is very likely to be quite small.
Large enough that they will definitely get the rights to air it, but not so large that they require it to be a hit. It might even be that Crunchyroll invested into this show years ago, when the multimedia-project was in the starting phase.

I agree to some extent that westerner will have more of a proclivity to do this but the Japanese are very much doing it too although its just a smaller subset of the viewership and not the major draw. Here is a post I made the other day:

http://honeshabri.hatenablog.com/entry/kemono-friends

Holy shit. Some people really deep theorise on this show.

Apparently the first episode follows the history of evolution of humanity.

-Kaban-chan starts off no more than a beast unaware of her abilities.
-Then it is shown that humans develop an advantage over other animals through endurance with the scene where Serval pants.
-Humans even though outpaced by their prey and possibly weaker in the wild could often run far longer so would kill animals by exhausting them with superior endurance.
-Then the ability to throw at a target/goal which gave humans advantage in hunting and so on is shown when they fight the Cerulean.

It goes on further to go into some stuff about being expelled from paradise, gilgamesh, humbaba and ancient Mesopotamia which I don't really follow.

Your average western anime viewer only likes to watch the latest mature, dark show. Also, males aren't suppose to like cute things, a good example of this are those Kirby covers.

Also this kind of show would be seen as childish and "contentless" by your average westerner. I hate to bring it up, but it's part of why people made such a big deal about the MLP thing, while in Japan there's a good chance your average otaku watches both kids and late night anime.

Yes but the nips at least have the decency to merge their silly tinfoil hat theories with the fact that they also enjoy the show for what it is. Besides those are actually interesting observations instead of whatever stupid narrative the west tries to manufacture to build some sort of faux enjoyment for this show.

They did invest in the whole project if the way it is listed on the website is anything to go by and are fairly high up on the list but not super high. Given the relatively low budget though maybe the buy in wasn't so high.

I don't get it. Why do some people want this pretentious shit? The only purpose of entertainment is to entertain. I have never learned anything meaningful from anime or any entertainment media as a whole. Want to stimulate your neurons? Then go study.

People who want to read intellectual depth into entertainment are stupid and immature. Often arrogant too because they are too stupid to notice their own stupidity.

There is an interview the much hated sakugablog posted recently where the president of Bones said:
"As of late, digital distribution has to be factor for sure. When the distribution is decided and there’s some quality to the product, you can also sell it overseas. But then, the overseas side says “sci-fi, action or fantasy” – I’m being told that if at least one of these genres is not included, the show won’t become really popular there. (laughs)"

If they're in the production committee and invested in the show they should somehow get a share of the profits, even if tiny. Maybe Kemono Friends being succesful in Japan is enough for them. It's likely that they never had the intention to push it in the West because they know it's not the kind of show westerners like and no amount of advertisement will change that.
>>
>>153594302
Do you think they got Serval-chans VA the job too?

Servals VA is 尾崎由香 her agency is HiBiKi and HiBiKi is from what I can tell a subsidiary of Bushiroad. So maybe their producer pushed for one of their VAs without experience to get a good role and now they lucked out?

In high school we had a volunteer week where we had to work for free. I picked the zoo, thought it would be fun. Turned out to be a terrible week. I was 14 years old, had to do thankless shitty work in bad condition all day and even had to pay 50 bucks to rent the zoo shirt "uniform". Never again. Zoos are terrible.

Nip action otaku and western casual anime viewers practically like the same kind of shows. It's just that nip otaku actually do spend the money for those crazy-expensive anime discs, while westerners will just shake their head.

It's not like all nip otaku are some homogenized group. There's idol-fags, action-fags, mecha-fags, fantasy-fags, comedy-fags, military-fags and whatever (plus -faglerinas of course).
