Alternate Title



Japari Park: a large zoo home to many exotic animals. But it’s not just an ordinary zoo; thanks to the mysterious “Sandstar,” many of the animals have become anthropomorphized girls known as Friends! Upon waking up in the park with no memories, a girl known as Kaban befriends fellow Friend Serval, and together they set out on an adventure through the park to find out what kind of animal Kaban is and meeting new Friends along the way!


Kemono Friends is a multimedia franchise by Mine Yoshizaki that began as a mobile game developed by Nexon that was in service from March 2015 to December 2016. A second mobile game called Kemono Friends Pavilion by Bushiroad was also released in 2018 along with a Nintendo Switch game called Kemono Friends Picross.
