The official Twitter account for anime director TATSUKI's (Kemono Friends) three-person independent animation group irodori began streaming a new "Hentatsu" anime short on Saturday. The post describes the video as the "end" of the story.
TATSUKI posted the first part in January after previously 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. The second part of the anime debuted in February, while the third part debuted in May. The animation group's Twitter account began streaming the fourth part in July.
TATSUKI and irodori — which also includes Kemono Friends art director Yūko Shiromizu and Kemono Friends animation director Yoshihisa Isa — 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.
