Kemono Friends' Former Director, Studio Make Kemurikusa TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
TATSUKI and Yaoyorozu, the former director and studio of the Kemono Friends anime, formally unveiled their new television anime Kemurikusa on Sunday. The television anime is an adaptation of TATSUKI's earlier self-produced anime of the same name. TATSUKI and Yaoyorozu made the announcement at the "Yaoyorozu Status Update Talk Event" at Tokyo's Shinjuku Alta Theater.
Kemurikusa was previously an original anime released by TATSUKI's self-produced animation group irodori from 2010 to 2012. The science-fiction action story follows girls who fight with weird entities nicknamed "mushi" (bugs) and survive in a world of red fog. The previous original anime won the 24th CG Anime Contest in 2012.
The staff will announce the broadcast schedule and other details later.
TATSUKI is also directing a "hobby" anime called "Hentatsu."
TATSUKI and irodori — which also includes Kemono Friends art director Yūko Shiromizu and Kemono Friends animation director Yoshihisa Isa — had teased a new television anime project with a flier at Comic Market in December.
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 the studio Yaoyorozu would no longer be involved. Producer Yoshitada Fukuhara confirmed in December that Yaoyorozu will not return.
