Kemono Friends Director Tatsuki Reveals 2nd 'Hentatsu' Anime Short

posted on by Karen Ressler
Video continues story from first short

The official YouTube and Twitter accounts for anime director TATSUKI's (Kemono Friends) three-person independent animation group irodori began streaming a second "tentative edition" video for the "Hentatsu" anime on Wednesday. The video picks up where the last video left off in a conversation between the two characters.

The Twitter account continues to describe "Hentatsu" as a "hobby" anime. The YouTube video description says that the parts of this anime will "maybe" eventually be compiled and reuploaded.

TATSUKI debuted the first part last month after first posting an image of the two characters on the train platform of the Chūō (Rapid) Line's Nakano station in Tokyo. The first part features what appears to be a location from irodori's "Keifuku-san" anime short.

TATSUKI and irodori — which also includes Kemono Friends art director Yūko Shiromizu and Kemono Friends animation director Yoshihisa Isateased 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.

irodori debuted the full version of the "Keifuku-san" anime short in December. The short shipped on DVD on February 19 after a delay to meet the unexpected pre-order demand.
