  • This Came Out of Left Field
    Going into this I had no idea this was going to be as cute as it was, nor was I expecting it to have such a fantastic story. The characters are well thought out (and again, very adorable), the way it combines 3D animation with traditional animation is something different, and on top of all this it left me wanting more! If you're still deciding whether or not to watch this, let me decide for you. ...

  • You will fall in love with the characters
    You don’t want to miss this show. Give it a try, it starts slow and the animation is not the best. But the story is. And that’s where this show shines thes best. You will want to finish the show because of fun the story is. Also the characters are fun to watch.

  • Terrible animation, but fantastic story
    The animation of Kemono Friends is really awful, but after the first episode you'll be hooked by the storytelling. The characters you meet along the way are cute and characterized well, the ending is emotional (unlike the rest, which is pretty happy-go-lucky), and you'll find yourself wanting more. Watching it again will give an opportunity to spot more details that speak to a much deeper, ...

  • Japan's answer to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
    Kemono Friends is a cheap CGI show that was made by ten people over a year and a half to promote a cellphone game that folded a few months before the show was set to air.
    Despite that, it's really very good.
    The animation is poor, but charming in it's own way, and the writing, story, and acting are all surprisingly good. This isn't a slice-of-life show where nothing happens; It's a road trip ...

    Under the attractive story is a history of mankind's development
    This anime's story is truly wonderful, probably the best one of this year i think. Sometimes you can find some suspense plots in it, which makes me feel the story will become dark like Madoka. But in fact, there is only healing instead of conspiracy.
    If you think about the story deeper, you can find that Kaban and serval's traveling also shows the process of humanity's development. For example,

  • It's that anime that turned a penguin into a weeb!
    Yes the CGI animation is... not that good, it can be distracting, but it's worth it to see some great world building, characterization and just an adorably amazing show!

    It's a truly addicting and enjoyable show and I will hate it if it's just 12 episodes, more would be awesome!

  • The Deadly Premonition of Anime
    You'd be forgiven for thinking this is just some low quality garbage based on the animation. I know i did, the only reason I continued watching beyond the first minute is because I was explicitly told to ignore the... "sub par" animation, and I'm glad I did. Very few shows have sucked me in with it's glowing reviews and have actually been worth the hype surrounding it. 10/10

    Joke show turned fantastic!
    Kemono Friends was recommended to me by some friends. I watched a PV for it, and instantly was turned off by the animation style. But then they persisted, telling me how good it was. The first few episodes were okay, and the animation was...unusual.

    BUT, I figured there had to be something behind my friends' love of it, so I kept watching. The show really grows on you, both in story and in ...

    It's a game...it's an anime...it's Kemono friends.
    Not sure if it's my lack of better judgment or my bias towards really cute things, but I was wrong about this show, although it took a while to get used to the animation, getting through the whole thing was definitely worth of my time (not that my time is too valuable anyways). The CGI was very, very bad, after all this is a very low budget production, which to be honest is the only reason why ...

    Major Addiction Withdrawal! But being a junkie had never felt so good...
    Watched the series 3 times. Since the last episode I've been scouring the net EVERYDAY for more Kemono Friends info: merchandise, comments, analyses, fan art, etc. I just can't get enough; I swear I think about it at least every couple of minutes, at work or at home. But until a new season I've found a few things to tie me over :
    1. MAD (Music Anime Douga) videos on Youtube (especially those ...
