And Amazon has this. First episode is now up:

Episode 1

Pretty desolate place the characters are living in, and there are so many Rinas to deal with. And after busting up a buy, they find a boy Wakaba who they think is a bug posing as a human, but is just as confused about the situation as Rin and company are. So the Kemurikusa is some green leaf thing used to exterminate bugs, but using it on Wakaba actually heals his wounds, and Lucky's ears are used to locate these bugs. To prove that Wakaba is not a bug, he helps locate one of the Rina quadruplets and saves her. Pretty weird that was, but I wouldn't expect any less from Tatsumi, who is working on this instead of the Kemono Friends sequel.

I had no idea who the director/creator of this series was that's why I was caught off guard by the horrible animation . It's not much of a problem to me when they don't fight but the action scenes look really bad. Which is a shame because the rest of the episode was actually pretty good and would've benefited a lot from better animation. I'm still not sure what the plot of this series is but I want to know more about the world and who (or what) the characters are (although the introduction of the boy was a little bit clumsy).
I hope I can get used to the animation because the story might be worth watching it.

It doesn’t give a lot away in the first episode, but I definitely get the Kemono Friends vibe (and not just due to the art style). I can’t wait to learn more about the world and more about our intrepid heroes and most importantly, where the story is going. Tatsuki has a lot of support after Kemono Friends (that is, if the ‘No Tatsuki, no tanoshi’ crowd wasn’t all just talk) so hopefully he can make this just as successful.

Episode 2

Wakaba is still tied up while the girls are staying vigilant about the situation, but after using the Kemurikusa on him that heals him instead of kill him, they are now convinced that he's not a bug. Even so, they still don't trust him. After all that talk, everybody decides to leave the island, so on the streetcar they go. But seeing that somebody usually dies when leaving the island, Wakaba is going to be the first to go as a warning. Not much happens here as it's a bunch of talk.

I’m most intrigued right now as to why they don’t believe that he’s human, and if he’s human, what are they and why do they exist?

Episode 3

It's onto the next island where they finally find water and drink some to quench their thirst. While the girls can last for days, Wakaba probably will need more. And then disaster strikes as Wakaba nearly bites the dust trying to save those crystals from being engulfed by the red fog. Pretty much, it's all about the journey here Wakaba just continues to go along for the ride through this wasteland, all while the red fog continues to be a mysterious phenomenon that has yet to be explained other than the fact that it's the source of all evil.

Kemurikusa EP # 2

This reminds a bit of Girls Last Tour just trying to survie

Dsepite IMO Wakaba being too wimpy he also has glimpses of widom as his postive outllok makes in to leave the island with their home / Midori

Wakaba is free for now thanks to his rescue However there is still not enough water ( 5 DAYS )

Ritsu along with the 4 Rinas prep and leave on a perilious trip as Rin tells Wakaba somebody usually dies but its better to try than just biding their time for the end

Kemurikusa EP # 3

I was on the right track when I said it was like Girls last Tour

Rin has resveration whether they will survie

They have to stop to give Ritsu a rest since she's in sync with Midori

The sisters al need water for energy and apparently eat objects thet find to make things and clone themselves

Wakaba eats some Kemurikusa

Back at the RR car the earth opens up Wakaba dives after a pot of objects which is important to Rin who with a Midori root saves him

Episode 4

The gang finally encounters another bug after the last two episodes were bug-free, and this one is a Nushi class, which is super-strong. Just when it looked like Rin was ready to sacrifice herself to get everybody to safety, Wakaba's keen sense of observation saves the day as he realized that the Nushi reacted to the Kemurikusa, and as such he uses Rina's power from her skirt to draw its attention and then Rin finishes it off. That was thrilling to see, and it raises the question about this Ryuko person that was said to be the strongest and ended up dying against a strong bug, as well as what happened there at the end.

I'm glad I checked this one out. It's an interesting series.

It's a bit like if you crossed Girl's Last Tour with Kemono Friends. The art style is striking but the CGI animation is on the rougher side. The world building is quite engaging and mysterious. All in all I am liking this more than I did Kemono Friends 4 episodes into the series and I thought Kemono Friends was worth the watch.

I wonder what happened to the other sisters, like why and how they died.

They were in the pre-show episodes and suddenly they were already dead in the last one.

Are those earlier web episodes considered canon to the current series?
