Much-awaited TV anime second season is now available on Crunchyroll
On the release day of their debut CD "Starry Story EP" in Japan, the Kemono Friends Project's official YouTube channel has also started streaming a 90-second music video for "Kimi wa Kaeru Basho" (You are the Place Where I Return), the second ED theme song for the ongoing Kemono Friends TV anime second season performed by its newly-formed two-member unit Gothic×Luck.
This is their first live-action music video featuring themselves. They performed the anime's first ED song "Hoshi wo Tsunagete" (Connecting the Stars) as well, but its MV featured their anime version characters.
The unit's two members: Mashiro Yagi (Greater lophorina) and Madoka Suga (Western parotia) are the winners of the open audition for the new unit held last September. They made their actress debut in the franchise's second stage play "Kemono Friends 2 ~Yuki furu Yoru no Kemono-tachi" (Animals
in The Snowing Night) in the following November.
