Thoughts on the new 2hu/boatsluts?
bird friends are cute
even if they're extinct ;_;
What it mean to have consumed the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge.
We don't know if it has longevity enough. The original multimedia project didn't really plan this out far enough because nobody expected it to get this far, and even now how far it CAN go.
Everybody involved here is behind the 8-ball.
Their best hope is going the Girls und Panzer route and hoping side-materials like manga and good fanworks can keep the series afloat until more anime/game is produced.
This anime has something. Is not the characters, is not the charm of the pseudo-professional CG is... something.
Is like it's not a normal anime, like it has more soul than the usual things that you see each season.
We are getting attention from even Taiwanese weebs apparently.
I imagine they initially planned for the mobage to last a while longer. This whole situation is just really unexpected, I doubt anyone would have thought the game would get shut down, and the manga cancelled, and then suddenly the low budget anime would blow up and revive the franchise.
It got canceled because Nexon is the EA of mobage and didn't want to wait a month or two to see if the anime did well before shutting down the game and saying that they will never open it again.
Kemono Friends has the potential to reach an even larger popularity than boats and 2hu. I think it could go totally mainstream, like broadcasted on day-time slots and every kid and their grandma knows what Kemono Friends is.
The thing is that apparently no new official material is planned beyond that 12-episodes anime series, it could reach a very large instant popularity but it will then fade slowly into obscurity unless the IP owners bring tons of manga, drama CD, games, new anime etc. on the market to keep people interested. And keep everything child-friendly like the anime.
They should also make official collaborations with zoo and safari parks.
>Kemono Friends has the potential to reach an even larger popularity than boats and 2hu. I think it could go totally mainstream, like broadcasted on day-time slots and every kid and their grandma knows what Kemono Friends is.
I don't think that'll happen.
>but it will then fade slowly into obscurity
Then there's Yuyushiki for which the community is still somehow active. I mean the manga is going on, sure, but it doesn't really seem to be a big factor in that.
KanColle anime was real uninspiring. So what if Diomedea's work is easier on the eyes than the CG with Kemono. Fubuki's show was abysmal in pacing and storyboard direction.
What he said is that Kemono Friends is (mostly) normie-friendly while being engaging, while touhou and kancolle is pure otaku territory. Which gives it a better potential, though now it's impossible to predict how things would turn out.
Why is this so popular? I couldn't last the first two minutes, so I'm assuming ironically liking to create a sekrit club is the source?
You need to watch it whit another mindset than ''doesn't look good. I don't like it''.
I think this is having the undertale effect. Poor graphics that make the call of duty players dislike it and some people can see it childish at first but is in reality very good if you give it a chance.
You're right. These people are all uninteresting fat slobs in their thirties wanting to carve themselves out of a community they hate, even if the reason for doing so is counterfeit.
Now please leave please.
Maybe mainstream in japan, but in the end it's too soon to tell since the whole project is basically restarting from 0 if it's true a new game is being produced. Also
I don't mind the art at all but the sound of some poor nameless seiyuu living paycheck to paycheck doing her best (terrible) fake laugh for spare change was enough to make me cringe my stomach up into my thorax and instinctively alt-f4.
>kemono friends, for the """people""" who loved undertale
you aren't making a very convincing argument
>missed an entire KF thread
Please slow down, Friends.
Talking about the popularity is on topic and interesting. The more popular it gets the more Kemono Friends goodies/doujin/anime we're likely to get.
On the other hand metaranting about the quality of the threads surely won't make them better.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Friends, is in fact, Kemono/Friends, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, Kemono as Friends. Friends is not a life unto itself, but rather another living component of a fully functioning Kemono Domain made humanoid by the Sandstar deposits, animal traits and vital bodily functions comprising a full living being as defined by JAPARI.
Hey, it's pretty similar a kid who goes around helping solving problems that monsters/animals can't by themselves, while trying to find information about what's going on in that unknown place and making new friends along the way. And that's not a bad thing, the show is very well written, despite it's graphical flaws. Serval learns how to do better her voice as the show progresses.
The friends are intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain them.
I didn't mean that is for people that liked undertale. I mean that this has that ''elitist hate it'' vibe. People can't see outside their little bubble.
''I don't like it so it's shit''
A lot of people like it. Maybe it's just not for you o you didn't last enough to see what other people see in this.
>season 2 is announced
>it will be drawn-animated by a different studio instead of 3DCG
Which studio could pull it off? My money is on KyoAni or Shaft.
Why contain it?
That probably turned me off initially as well. But now, the "Ahaha! Aha! Wahhhhh hahahaha!" has become incredibly endearing.
>maidragon fans are raging about Kemono being more popular than their show.
>KyoAni drops Maidragon s2 to make Kemono s2
I like both shows and I would be sad if Maidragon doesn't get another season but man, that would be funny.
The very first scene is rather cheesy in more ways than one, yes. Then again, Serval's voice acting gets better, and from ep3 you'd get some known seiyus doing an amazing job. Try getting to episode 3 if you really want to understand its popularity.
What the fuck with this thread, it's not tanoshii.
I don't think >153622438 should put up with Kemono Friends. It's not a polished product, and it's not given much of a budget even by Japanese standards. The whole Kemono Friends project essentially wrapped with a 2 volume manga and Nexon running the game to the ground, while this low budget anime needed 500 odd days just to finally get greenlit.
It's the first show in years that I drop before 6 episodes.
Hell, I sincerely couldn't watch the first episode fully. But I keep seeing all the threads, please tell me it gets better or anything.
I don't think going with well drawn 2d would take anything away from the series. The actual issue is that the director only directs 3d stuff, and so going 2d would likely mean a new director, which is dangerous for something like this that has an original story.
Just a reminder you're responding the 123th shitpost that tries desperately to draw a parallel between Kemono Friends and that show. I think it's best to just ignore and report.
Yes, the first episode is kind of a mess production wise and not reflective of the direction of the later ones. It's still very low budget though, but stuff like characters walking on air or talking without moving their mouths doesn't happen afterwards.
Even storywise, it gives a wrong impression since the entire climax of the episode is based on fighting Ceruleans and there hasn't been an actual fighting scene against them since then (they've only appeared once and the characters just ran away)
I wasn't saying 2D would inherently take away from the show, mainly it was what you said about it likely meaning a change in director, but I do think it would take away from some of the charm. If they did keep the main staff and the only change was 2D I'm sure I'd still love it.
See, we're attracting too much shitposters. I missed the days when KF threads were slow and fun under the radar.
This thread is shit.
Can we go back posting Friends?
Too late, I'm 10 minutes in and strangely enthralled.
>be ready for the "why do u like this shit, animation is so bad"
Did you join these threads just yesterday or something?
I'm glad Japan loves Shoebill-chan too. It's been a week and it seems like she has almost as much art as Serval-chan.
>Kemono Friends is shit
>MaiDorogon is great
>Still manage to pick the wrong horse because japs turned the former into a meme
Goddamn it, it's picking Etotama over Show By Rock all over again
>Nobody picked Etotama over SB69
I really don't like you at all.
So where should episode 6's Friends rank on this?
I'd put Shoebill in "かしこーい!" Lion in "一般的なフレンズ" the rest of Lion's girls in "考えるのが苦手なフレンズ" and the rest of Moose's girls in "バカ"
Good luck finding chiitrans 1 in current year though.
Cerval is actually a thing in the game.
Why I never see art of Suna Neko on these threads?? Is she really that unpopular?? Can't believed since she got decent screen time
Also even if her quirk of going totally sugoi!!! to well that was fun in a couple seconds would get old pretty quick still believe she is a cutie. Specially for the: my curiosity is satiated today don't wanna do anymore... Even fucking All Day Cheerful Serval commented on how fun her life is...
People draw what they wanna draw.
Here's a Sand Cat just for you, ESL Friend.
Wish I could draw.... But bloody hell just look at this beautiful creatu.. Friend she's a lot better than the cow duo if do I say so myself
This actually mades a lot of sense, really like tsuchinoko too and she it's getting some art, guess that's something
Thanks desu anon, where did you get that one from?
Sadly I don't remember the artist.
But it's going to die not too long after this season ends, even if they really manage to get a new game going. And that's actually a good thing. I'm happy enough with its current level of popularity.
I've seen the Friend chart (which apparently needs updating) posted around, but I don't know any of the tiers besides Otter being BAKA. Is there a translated on floating around?
Love it, actually copying her singing just randomly around the house when I need to smile, that and remembering Serval's panting
Does anyone have a image of serval panting BTW??
If they handle it properly they should be able to maintain at least decent popularity. It's too big for everyone to just suddenly forget about it as the season ends.
I don't want to see it become something that's marketed to death, but I do want the Friends to live on for a long time.
Would you take Toki's Japari Bun?
Clearly everyone just lost interest in her real quickly.
The quickest way to drain the fun out of these threads is by policing what people are allowed to say or not, like what you're doing. Let everyone do whatever they want as long as it doesn't break /a/'s community rules, there's nothing wrong with saying that you want to fuck anime girls on fucking /a/ out of all places.
>KanColle anime was real uninspiring. So what if Diomedea's work is easier on the eyes than the CG with Kemono. Fubuki's show was abysmal in pacing and storyboard direction.
KanColle needs an overhaul and get a new staff and a reputable studio who has done military stuff before
Fucking Touken Ranbu has ufotable
Isn't this just shit for kids without the entertaining humor of TB24, Heybot and Classicaloid? Is it really popular? first time I'm hearing about it not being liked by just an small circle of autists. I mean, I never see threads. And if it's popular, why?
It has a very large cast of cute girls with no male characters to be seen and it used to have a video game. It's not really far-fetched but around here saying "X has nothing do with Y because I love to nitpick over every little thing" is some sort of sport.
OP is retarded though because Kemono Friends has been really popular for only 2 weeks, that's nothing compared to the lasting popularity of boats and Touhou.
Why would Kaban want to leave the park?
Unless her memory comes back and she would want to return to her family or whatever there's nothing for her outside and lots of great friends inside.
>but around here saying "X has nothing do with Y because I love to nitpick over every little thing" is some sort of sport.
It's more like a defense mechanism. Constant mentions of other shows with notoriously large and/or cancerous fanbases tends to invite exactly those unwanted fans to the threads.
From the looks of promo and stuff, kaban is just a throw-away self-insert character
A teary eyed "I have to go to my family, but I'm sure we'll meet again" ending between her and Serval could definitely be on the table.
Of course we still don't know what the 'real' plot is yet. So far its been getting to the library to find out what kaban is, but the library is next episode and she was just told she was a human last episode.
It's mostly in your head. Mentions of a fanbase actually invites those who like to bitch about said fanbase.
And Touhou and KanColle are big enough that maybe half the posters in this thread are already into one or the other to some degree.
I'm a Touhou fan.
Well since it's relevant now.
its pretty simple humanity figured out how to clone perfect catgirls and fucked off. its essentially the peaceful robot waifu apocalypse where humans are to busy fucking x to leave the house.
At this point it would be far too large a twist for her to be anything but human.
Maybe she could be some kind of artificial human created by the starthing, but even then she's still technically human.
>he doesn't understand how the ears actually work
The park deteriorated wildly, which is why Boss is so out of order.
In the desert there was probably a proper road, but with no one to maintain it was covered by sand dunes
Boss just operates on an outdated map that predates the park's deteriation, which is why he has so much trouble driving around.
its going to be something like the park exists to figure out what kinda nekomimi girl is best. the humans stopped showing up cause why would you bother visiting the cute girl preserve when you cant fuck anything in it.
It's always cute to see them compared to the animal they're based off of.
the primate friends only seem to have one pair of ears
only fish friend is 'seaman' the human faced fish
Because for the cute atmosphere that blends perfectly with the optimism of the kid show plot
Here is the cover of the ED single
It's like that at first, but it gives off that mysterious vibe that hooks one in
That's not たのしーい.
That's not たのしーい at all.
Nothing to わーい about.
At least she is more popular than Jaguar-chan
I really like the text for the album art.
>Without friends no one could chose to live
>though he had all others goods.
The majority of people will always be plebs, and plebs will always have shit taste. Why expect the good shows to be noticed and popular?
If anything things get ruined more when made popular.
>Kemono Yuri Friends hajimaru yo~
Jaguar is the best girl. BEST.
>Reliable, cool, wild big sister.
>Still young and feminine in skirt
This arouses me.
>The word "erotic" is the most searched at 2 o'clock at night
My dream of having a Shoebill nendo doesn't seem so hopeless now.
We can dream. I mean, how many fucking boat nendos are there?
I won't shitpost. Prairie is just my favorite friend.
>Auroch only went extincted in 1627
Gentle cuddling in front of a warm fire beneath a chimney on a cold winter's night, sharing a cup of hot cocoa and watching the snow gently flutter to the ground in the twilight hours.
>You will never share a cold winter's night with a penguin as she
NOOT NOOTs you
There's no credit for VA of Boss. Cerulean appeared twice ep1 and ep4, when Boss was not with girls. Whose boss is Boss?
I am hoping for a regular Serval PVC figure soon. I will probably just buy a resin recast garage kit and paint it myself, but I still would love to see it along with figures for other important friends.
You will never share a cold winter's night with a penguin as she NOOT NOOTs you
There's a better CM3D2 model, but i cannot find a screenshot of it now.
It will come, but don't expect anything too soon, the popularity came really unexpectedly. The only reason there's anything at WonFes is GSC likely jumped on the licence as soon as they saw it becoming something big, and there's only announcements no actual sculpts or anything.
Apparently they survived a bit longer. From the Polish Wikipedia:
>"The last known habitat of the Aurochs was in Ducal Prussia, north-west of Tapiau on the river Pregel, where they lived until the middle of the 18th century. They were fed and looked after. Their numbers are recorded at 70 heads in 1739, but only two in 1742. The last member of the species died in 1755 at the hands of a poacher."
Fuck I looked it up and it's just a cheap rigid figure that you have to build yourself. What's the point of a figure that looks like ass if it's not even posable?
Well, at least there's the nendo.
I have no problem building plamo, it's just that I don't see the point if you can't customize and pose the figure.
Also there's apparently a really small number of parts so you don't even get to have much fun building it.
Bird vulvas shouldn't be this puffy.
>Watch Kemono Friends
>Check domesticated servals information
>I can probably afford one...
>Realize I have no free time nor dedication to go through with it
Forever no real serval friend
Shoebill by Bang-You
Only beaver and prairie dog had 'chemistry'
otter and jaguar didn't really interact
Lama and Toki didn't really interact
I don't think sand cat and tsuchinoko even met each other
Moose and Lion joked about the fight they had afterwards
Sugoi! A friend who's good at getting repeating numbers!
