Kemono Friends Zoo Collab Adds Night Tours
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The successful Kemono Friends and zoo collaborations are adding limited time night tours to give a visitors a new experience with nocturnal animals.
The Misaki Park in Osaka will be the first location to offer night tours starting on July 6. During the collaboration period, 19 Kemono Friends character panels will be put up throughout the park and two original characters, the Bottle-nose Dolphin and Prairie Dog, can be purchased as button pins.
Misaki Park is a zoo and amusement park operated by the Nankai Railway Company. The site hosts a dolphin show, giraffes, tigers, lions, Japanese macaques, Japanese black bears, red kangaroos, red pandas, sika deer, capybara, and more. Most of these animals have Kemono Friends counterpart artwork.
The collaboration project between the Kemono Friends anime and the Tobu Zoo in Saitama proved wildly successful as it boosted attendance to the zoo by 23.6% from last year during the nine-day Golden Week period.
That collaboration began on April 22 and will end on June 25. Four more zoos — Sapporo Maruyama Zoo, Chiba Zoological Park, Kyoto Municipal Zoo, and Fukuoka Municipal Zoo — sold collaboration goods until May 31. Kemono Friends is also got its own line of cookies in collaboration with the Kumamoto Zoo.
The Kemono Friends anime, which was part of a multimedia project that included the Nexon smartphone game of the same name, aired from January to March 2017 and was streamed by Crunchyroll. The series is getting a new video project, smartphone game, and stage play.
