Kemono Friends Director: There Are No More Shorts Now, Please Take a Break

Kemono Friends director and animator TATSUKI stated on Twitter on Tuesday that he does not currently have plans to create another unofficial short episode. "There is no episode 12.2," TATSUKI said. "Everyone please get some proper rest lol."
TATSUKI continued, "I wanted to keep on foolishly wasting time and money, but first I'm working on the packaging cover art for the main Kemono Friends series and other stuff. If I did [another short] on top of that, I'd collapse and die, thank you very much."
TATSUKI posted an unofficial "episode 12.1" earlier this month, but emphasized that this "indie" video "made just for fun" is not the upcoming "new screen project" that has been green-lit for the franchise.
Nexon launched the smartphone game last year. In the RPG, animals around the world have transformed into girls and players could recruit them into their party for battle.
The original app game ended service on December 14. Nexon announced in February that the app will not return despite the anime's popularity, but a spokesperson for the company later stated last month that the app's return "is possible."
