Kemono Friends Director Tatsuki Reveals New Anime, Hentatsu

Tatsuki, who directed the first hit season of Kemono Friends before being removed from the project, is back with his own original anime.

He shared a short video previewing the anime, called Hentatsu, January 31.

The two-minute promotional video, produced by Tatsuki and his animation team irodori, is described as a “temporary version.” The YouTube description says a completed version will be uploaded shortly.

In the video, the two characters explore a spooky version of Nakano Broadway, the Tokyo mall famous for its collection of otaku goods and winding, maze-like layout.

In a Twitter post, Tatsuki describes the video as “hobby anime.”

Tatsuki and studio Yaoyorozu were removed from Kemono Friends season 2 after a dispute about unlicensed use of the property.

It looks like Tatsuki is moving out of Japari Park and into Tokyo.
