RULES OF NATURE
Serval and Kaban's kids are so cute. Wonder which one the father is.
>cats mate for only a few minutes per mating season
>female humans can have continues orgasm in their permanent mating season.
Do you think that Kaban would settle with just Serval or she also made the other friends bear her children?
Maybe taking on a human appearance allows her to enjoy sex more.
The franchise needs more birbs.
Especially colorful birbs.
Oh, I'd also Fennec, I'd totally Fennec, but Fennec belongs to Arai-saan, so I can't Fennec, sadly.
I don't recall Fennec being a jobber.
Do you have the one of her washing the expanding seaweed?
Where does caracal fit in your indecent rezu tree?
It does. But the studio knew their limitations and did what they could with the medium and that was makes it great.
1st episode was a bit hard to watch but I didn't notice it past that. It's completely different from bersker for example
Everyone knows that, we all have eyes, and only delusional insecure fanboys would try to deny it.
Given that it's pretty much a non-topic, because nothing to talk about if everyone agrees.
We know very well but value the story more. Some of us are desensitized due to being familiar with Tesagubu and gdgd
Shame the anime didn't have Golden Snub Nosed Monkey's apprentice in it Aye-Aye-chan.
>it's pretty much a non-topic, because nothing to talk about if everyone agrees
Who's the insecure one again? We have this discussion all the time. I know it's hard for you to understand that people disagree with you though
Sure the CG is shit but that doesn't make the show bad overall. That's the one thing I hate about gamers where they think graphics is everything that makes a game when really you don't need good graphics to make a good game.
Wolves are cool. Shame they are often claimed by furries and wolfgirls that ruin it
will you idiots shut up, you know nothing
the staff embraced the situation and worked with what they were given rather than fighting it
out of this came style
most cg today still and does indeed look terrible
kemofure on the other hand cultivated charm
it's fucking art
No, I don't think so. I seriously love KF's animation. It definetely looks cheap and it's limited, but animators made that cheapness work. Limitations force them to be creative and use unusual techniques. Animation also helped to create athmosphere of the show and it perfectly fits show's pacing. It's charming, has unique style and aesthetics. In other words, animators knew what they were doing/ For me, that matters more than mere looks.
What's wrong with Horo (except for looking like a kitsune).
The CG is good because it adds to the show. The art is cute. The actual animation is simplistic, which works well because the show is not action-focused. There are only a couple action scenes, which are admittedly wonky, but they are only a tiny fraction of what the entire show and not the main draw. The point is to make the characters endearing, and the animation accomplishes that without trying too hard to the point of being distracting.
Usually the crux of this debate is what constitutes "good" art or animation. Some people look at any visual medium and think "bad" if there aren't enough frames or pixels on the screen. This is usually because people equate "cost-effective" with "lazy", and as a result it must also be "bad". But simplistic art can be just as effective if done right, and the CG in Kemono Friends definitely has its own visual charm that most anime would die to have.
I think you're misunderstanding what people mean when they're calling it bad.
It's really just about aspects like polygon count, how well does the animation flow, how natural does it look, how detailed is everything, etc.
Everyone knows its charm and I think most people would agree that KF done in a higher quality style wouldn't really be KF, because the bad animation is part of the whole package that makes it so wonderful.
I cannot even finish Appleseed because of its generic plot.
Art is just the icing but, by the end, the bread is what makes a cake
It's the closest example I could think of
Unfortunately not. It was a shame since I really enjoyed it. Plus it had very nice CG that the rest of anime could learn a bit from
Not him but I don't find the girl in Etotama's CG cute.
Kemofure managed to make the characters adorable and that's pretty much all I want from anime. I can't call KF's CG bad because it does it's job perfectly.
i watch almost everything every season, so yes
but I don't think it would have worked as well
that said, the reason this is such a hit is because of the underlying perfection of raw story telling
changes in the surface medium prolly wouldn't have made much difference
I'm going to the zoo tomorrow. It occurs to me that I don't have much of a plan other than "walk around and see the animals".
What does one do at a zoo again?
Etotama had good animation. I didn't like the design choice though. Also didn't like the story.
So basically it only had animation going for it, which is presumably why it failed. Same as how LWA is not doing as well as thought.
I think people just conflate low budget with badness. When all that really means is more limitations. I agree with those other anons who say the staff did well with what they had. I think it looks pretty natural compared to a lot of other CG shows, and that's impressive.
What!? My tail grew longer!!
I can see right through this!!
You are a "kishimen"!!(some noodles)
I-it grew longer...
I get it!!
Arai-san's tail is growing longer and longer!!
You're a "houtou"!!(noodles)
> It's really just about aspects like polygon count, how well does the animation flow, how natural does it look, how detailed is everything, etc.
People really should stop judging animtion from how detailed it looks. Detailed and fluent animation would work well in mecha, for example, but it wouldn't work as well in something like KF. It just doesn't need that much details and fluency.
there is no objective vantage point for this, nothing you can measure that matters or is meaningful
kemofure's cg works great and fit everything about it perfectly
therefor it is good
Her fat butt will flatten her (I need to save more pictures of Hippo-sans butt).
Arai-san managed to get toilet paper attached in such a way that she mistakes it for a tail. Giraffe accuses her of being one type of noodle dish. They discover the source of the toilet paper, Arai-san does the animal thing of unrolling it madly, Giraffe accuses her of being another type of noodle dish, Otter materializes wherever there is fun to be had, and Kaban just watches the scene unfold
Everything sounds awful if you simplified it
"I just browse /a/ and shitpost"
"I just sit on my computer all day talking nonesense"
A few tweak of words would make a difference
"I went to the zoo and saw the dolphins dancing on the aquarium. I went to the monkeys and a capuhin monkey stole my icecream lol. I saw a kid insulting an elephant and big guy sprayed him with swamp water"
>doing better in the west
Considering that was the primary audience, that's to be expected.
I enjoyed the OVA, but the series is too lacking for me to continue.
Instead of kickstarting a 26-episode series, they should have just went with another OVA.
Some zoos have animal shows, but sometimes they cost extra. Anything where you can interact with the animals such as petting zoo, feed dispenser, etc. Make a checklist of friends and see if you can find your favorites. Really just enjoy yourself mate, zoos are comfy as hell.
Now you're making me want to go to the zoo too
inb4 a bunch of actually terrible cgdct cg shows fronted by producers incapable of understanding what made it great trying to cash in on kemofure's success
maybe i'll finally be able to take a bite out of my backlog
I swear, this show needs some sort of spinoff with short comedic skits like that.
The cafe is still busy as fuck.
They started using QR tickets, and saying shit I didn't understand, so I ran away.
The biggest question here is how her tail is being obscured by the toilet paper and how come it's over her tail and not under it given that she would wipe her butt with it and it would get stuck between her cheeks.
>shit what did that meant again?
I'm now picturing the episode 1 scene with anon instead of Kaban, and the people who work at the cafe instead of Serval. Sadly they weren't fast enough to force anon to use his tabenaidekudasai.
Have at it then, I hear she likes to shave herself a lot.
So I guess this is settled now?
Time for more 10 Game Friends.
Now we enter 5-star territory. The last batch.

Gomen everyone. I'll try again tomorrow. I'll eat Kaban for sure.
I only took this one of the drawings. It looks like some other gaijin has been there too.
It's really just that I'm going with someone who still thinks I must have some ulterior motive for going beyond seeing the animals.
They do have an Asian small-clawed otter. And a caracal. They don't have a serval, but they do have a

The characters rendered in 3D look cute, just this is enough to set it apart from the majority of 3D anime with terrible character designs. I am looking at you Appleseed and Sidonia.
It also works to great comedic effect for many scenes. Arai falling from the mountain and Serval getting kill by the bus. 2D animation will not be able to replicate the same kind of effect unless they find a good director. They only needed to fix some of clipping shit and floating against the ground. The snow bucket and ep1 hunting scene come to mind.
I'm Diatryma. You know, aren't birds look weak because they're not huge?
But this is where you're wrong, pal. Birds are the earth's mightiest.
We can fly up to the sky even though we can't fly. Isn't that smart? And cool?
That's why we're the mightiest. And i will prove it to you!

Don't hold back. I will give you aid if you're in trouble.

Now they might be thinking they said something rude to you and feeling bad because of that. Don't do it again anon. Go there and get your Japariman.
If you seek the largest wolf ever, you'll found me, Dire Wolf.
All of those wolves nowadays looked really fat. Hahaha!
They all look puny in my eyes. Bunch of wimps!
Their kiddie strength is nothing compared to me.
I'm Blue Whale. They say that i'm the largest animal ever.
With a shocking record of 34m. Bigger than even dinosaurs.
Even with my size, My strength and tolerance is in good shape.
Maybe that's why everybody calls me "Mommy".
Look upon this murderer of countless bird friends.

Kamaitachi No.1, Kamaichi.
I punish evildoers as part of "Hurricane Ninja Team".
Our trinity, together with Kamaji and Kamamitsu will send judgement upon evil.
My role is to make foe fall off their feet while the two follow my act.
Now watch your step. If you drop your guard, i'll send you falling.
>Kamaitachi - Setsu
Kamaitachi No.2, Kamaji.
I punish evildoers as part of "Hurricane Ninja Team".
Together with my fellow Kamaitachi Trinity, Nothing can mimic our movement.
I am the sickle for Kamaitachi. When Kamaichi trips our foe, I'll slice them up!
Frightened? Worry not. I will show mercy to you. By treating your wound.
House cats have taken over on every inhabited continent, and have domesticated the apex predators of humans into taking care of their every whim, I would say house neko is bretty powerful.
>Kamaitachi - Chi
Kamaitachi No.3, Kamamitsu.
I punish evildoers as part of "Hurricane Ninja Team".
The Trinity of me, Kamaichi and Kamaji are quite something.
My duty is to patch and treat wounds. This is merely to punish, so we won't injure you badly.
Although we sometimes forget about that. Cut us some slack, eh?
Whoops, that was 11. Oh well
See you next thread!
That was a lot of tanoshii.
>i'm the largest animal ever
>everybody calls me "Mommy".
That explains why King Cobra's only line in the anime was to ask if they needed a favor.
Impress her for the first time, with your knowledge about all the Friends.
What the fuck? We 2hu now?
She's a cool Friend, she deserves more attention.
you can't outgay the margay, this is the apex predator
Now these three friends I can see being introduced into the anime given that they're weasels like how Tsuchinoko is a fat snake. Also love how they stick with the Kamaitachi lore of the trinity.
She's a real snake in my eyes.
Speaking of which why is it that when the popular friends get translated many of them don't get any attention at all or at least comparisons to their anime counterparts (I would have done so if I wasn't asleep at those time and the threads closed before I could even read them).
king cobra should hang out with saltwater crocodile and form a punk gang
Maybe it's just too many of them around.
Honestly, to get that done you'd need an actual diagram editor like yEd.
>insert /g/ joke that's been done a trillion times already here (sexual innuendo optional)
What went through her mind?
Too suspicious. Someone you don't know suddenly asks if you desire a favor? That's a deal-with-the-devil situation, there's definitely an unspecified price involved.
Is it pure love?
How can you doubt this face?
Why not Japanese?
She always looks towards Arai-san's lower half.
Elephant is the largest land mammal and in the anime she was represented one head taller than everyone else. I wonder if we should assume it would be the same for Whale. A huge friendly shy dork.
I just found out my local zoo has Red Pandas, guess I should pay it a visit again, haven't been there in years.
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.
Many animals have been functioning in humanoid form every day without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the bipedal body form which is widely used today is called "Kemono/Friends", and many of the animals are not aware that it is basically just an altered form which came about from the Sandstar eruption.
These "friends" are definitely living beings capable of cognition, speech and being wholly sapient. However, they are not friends on their own volition; they can only be considered as such after their transformation through Sandstar exposure: the whole Kemono Friends is basically animal with Sandstar transformation, or Kemono/Friends. All the so called "friends" are really just independent species to Kemono/Friends.
She looks like she knows the deepest secrets of the universe.

I like how the larger shirts are the only ones that are in stock
This is true.
No, he's right. They're several sizes smaller.
Also it's not just the size, it's the overall fit. A japanese "LL" or "LLL" will still have very narrow sleeves to accommodate the average japanese's slim bird-boned untrained arms.
what about friends who are good at abusing roids?
You have an impeccable sense of humor.
They are big birds. They can get their own food now

shit zoo senpai
tell me it at least has a kirin?
Mine has a Serval and I know it used to have fennec foxes but the website doesnt show it so they might of got rid of it
Also has a whole capybara rather than just a head. Might go when the rains stop
>Have Grey Wolf, White Rhino, Hippo Giant Savannag Slug Mimic and HULULULU at my local zoo
I've seen you shittalking raccoons in thread after thread, and I've had it.
Not bad at all.
Look for one that is actually also doing it for the research, they might have labs attached to them.
Also sad but true, but zoos with expensive entrance fees tend to have better animal conditions.
Komodo Dragons here
Tierfreunde für den Sieg!
I'll balance it out.
Just noticed the serval and fennec are right next to each other. Cute
I guess it was mostly game mechanics in her case. House Cat was added to the game by the time they were adding the 2nd story, so if she hadn't been 5 stars most players wouldn't care about her.

The design of King is so lewd, I can't help but sketching it.
Still on the progress. .
At first, humanity thought King is largest penguin exist on the earth but then later people found gigantic dudes in Antarctica hence name it Emperor, superior to King.
I want the King and Emperor to have a showdown to determine who truly is the lewdest penguin.
Toronto actually has a decent zoo.
Giant Penguin, duh
