This is licensing news, but Jesus tapdancing Christ. I'm a person who actively seeks out bad anime, and this shitshow still left me aghast. And the cover art is downright devious, making it look like a Trigger show. There are going to be blind buyers who are going to get burned by this.

I don't know if any of you have been keeping up with the news. But the director for Kemono Friends was fired. And the news story BLEW THE HELL UP. Outraged fans protested, other staff members quit in solidarity, the president of the company that CREATED Kemono Friends is worried about the brands future.

JESUS. THis must have really struck a nerve with people. Why?

Because the original series was perfectly delightful (if you haven't watched it, you should), and people were hoping that the same team, carrying on in short order from where they left off, could do it again.

Or boring, perhaps? It failed my TinesPWH-test at any rate. But then I have the impression that my taste in anime is roughly orthogonal to Mr.Tines's!

Translated from the original Japanese

Episode 3 was where it suddenly leapt from being down in the noise so far as sales and pre-orders went and launched onto a trajectory that had it cruising past even the big name series that season -- the tweet counts alone give an idea of quite how it dominated.
