Director Tatsuki posted a short clip on Twitter for his Kemurikusa television anime on Wednesday. Tatsuki describes the clip as an "episode 0.6," and like his "Hentatsu" series of shorts, he also describes it as a "hobby" anime.

The main Kemurikusa anime series will premiere on BS Fuji and other channels in January, and Amazon Prime Video will "exclusively" offer the early streams of the anime. TATSUKI posted an "episode 0.5" for the anime on September 30.

The cast includes:

Mikako Komatsu as Rin

Arisa Kiyoto as Ritsu

Tomomi Jiena Sumi as Rina

TATSUKI and Yaoyorozu, Kemono Friends' former anime director and studio, are producing the anime. TATSUKI's fellow irodori members Yoshihisa Isa and Yūko Shiromizu serve as the animation director and art director, respectively. Yoshitada Fukuhara, the producer of the Kemono Friends anime, is credited as the animation producer.

TATSUKI is also directing a "hobby" anime called "Hentatsu." The fifth short debuted on July 31, and is described as the "end" of the story.

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 last 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.

The irodori group 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.
