The Japanese Twitter reacted strongly when director Tatsuki of Kemono Friends posted that he would have to leave the series.
A Sad Announcement
^ ‘This is very sudden, but I have to leave Kemono Friends. It seems like it’s an official order from Kadokawa. I am sorry, I also think it’s sad!’
Many Twitter users and fans of the series were shocked by the sudden announcement, ‘Oi! Bring director Katsuki back! Bring him back!’ and ‘Taking director Tatsuki away from Kemono Friends is like Doraemon without Doraemon.’
^ ‘Konami has nothing to do with it lmao’
Many Twitter users mentioned Metal Gear and how it was produced without Hideo Kojima, which made Konami trend alongside Kadokawa and Tatsuki.
The above Twitter user wondered who would be the director, series composer, screenwriter, etc considering it was all done by Tatsuki in the first season.
In any way, fans are upset that the person who made Kemono Friends the way it is won’t be able to have any say in the second season. Since the series has many fans, the waves this decision is making are high. Although we don’t know what is behind this decision, we will see how it influences the second season.
