Even with all the controversies surrounding its production, Kemono Friends Season 2 is pushing through. The anime previously revealed a key visual featuring Serval and Caracal, and now, they made three more additions. As the newly-updated visual reveals, PPP members, Gentoo Penguin, Royal Penguin, and Emperor Penguin have joined the image:
However, the new image made fans wonder where are the rest of the PPP, as it has five members. Missing are Rockhopper Penguin, and of course, Grape-kun’s waifu, Hululu AKA Humboldt Penguin. Well, Rockhopper’s probably rocking out somewhere, while Hululu might still be in mourning.
The new visual also confirms that Season 2 will be having a new design. This is because Kadokawa has hired new staff for the second season. Unfortunately, they kept mum on who the new staff is. Of course, this is because of the infamous fall out between previous director, Tatsuki, and Kadokawa. The company fired the director and his staff and is going a different direction for Season 2. As for the release date, they haven’t confirmed it yet either.
While many fans are indeed hyped for the new season, many are sticking with Tatsuki. In fact, some fans are calling this new season a “fake” as the “real” Kemono Friends anime should be directed by Tatsuki.
