Kemono Friends Season 2 has a new look, and has been constantly updating their key visual. This time, the upcoming anime has revealed an update, adding Lucky Beast along with two new characters.

Previously, the visual added PPP members King, Emperor, and Gentoo , as well as Hululu, Rockhopper, Fennec, and Raccoon to the poster which previously only featured Serval and Caracal.

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.

In addition, the anime’s new staff also revealed that Kemono Friends Season 2 will premiere on 8 January 2019, at 2:05 am. TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, and AT-X will be the channels airing it in Japan. They also revealed the new season’s story, which will follow Serval and Caracal as they meet a lost child. Together, they explore Japari Park and uncover its secrets. Oh, and they’ll also meet some new Friends too, along with a few familiar ones.

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.
