Oh, Grape-kun. I never watched Kemono Friends but I knew about you and how you loved Humboldt penguin.

May you rest in peace.

Glad they kept it up for him as long as he lived. Made many people happy following his tale. RIP Grape-kun.

"Also, thanks to Hululu who watched over Grape-kun until the very end,"

Noooooo! Sad Hopefully his end was swift and painless, and his last thoughts were of Hululu.

I thought I was good until I read that fan comic about Hululu receiving roses from "an unknown fan." Then the tears came...

If this doesn't bring about a change of heart amongst the Kadokawa executives, then I rather fear that nothing will.

While it was on, one penguin did more to legitimize the show's image with the mainstream than thousands of fans on two hemispheres. Very Happy

RIP sweet prince. You were hero Japan needed: an old man who fell in love with a 2D child.
