Kemono Friends Director Tatsuki Posts Full 'Keifuku-san' Short

posted on by Karen Ressler
5-minute video completes story previously told in 2 shorts

Kemono Friends director TATSUKI posted the full version of his new anime short on Thursday. The anime is listed with the title "Keifuku-san."

TATSUKI previously posted the beginning of the anime in two shorts, and the new video completes the anime with new footage.

TATSUKI created the short with Irodori, the three-person independent animation group that worked with the studio Yaoyorozu to produce the Kemono Friends anime. Besides TATSUKI, the members include Yūko Shiromizu and Yoshihisa Isa, the art director and animation director on Kemono Friends.

Yukari Hanamori provided the voice and Kurenai 88 and Toshifumi Tsuzuki collaborated on the sound.

TATSUKI revealed in October that he is recruiting experienced background artists for an unannounced project.

TATSUKI reported in September that, per a notification from publishing and production company Kadokawa, he is no longer working on the Kemono Friends project. Soon after, the anime's official website announced that Yaoyorozu would no longer be involved due to communication problems related to copyright permission. Producer Yoshitada Fukuhara confirmed this week that Yaoyorozu will not return.
