The lovably fluffy animal girls of Kemono Friends have invaded Tobu Zoo in Saitama as part of a collaboration, with 26 standees of characters from the show being put up in exhibits (of the same animal type) throughout the zoo, certain to have otaku excited to see real life animals alongside their favorite 2D animal girls – should they become brave enough to venture into the crowds of commoners.

Images of the exhibits with their Kemono Friend standees:

Special goods such as badges are naturally on sale at the zoo as well, in addition to some cookies as part of a collaboration with Kumamoto City Zoo – with all proceeds going directly toward its aid, since the zoo was damaged in the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake:

A few of the animals at the zoo had some interesting reactions to the standees, such as this 20-year-old penguin, who would apparently spend every waking moment staring at the standee of Hululu:

    I`m really happy with this ...

    The character designs are really good and pretty inventive in the way they implement the animal characteristics (like the two hair buns on the camel). I`m happy that the Kemono friends franchise found it`s success, so a lot more people can admire this cute and cool designs.

    The tragedy is that Grape Kun will never understand that his waifu can not love him back. He will spend the remainder of his days trying to woo her, worrying about her health, and god forbid should they take away the cut-out, wonder where his waifu has gone.

    Why would you do this Japan? Grape kun did not deserve this.

    That's enough reason to jump the fences and risk life to obtain them all.

    Or just make them available at the gift shops and saves everyone involved the trouble and the sanity, they can even be overpriced like everything else in the gift shops, and it will still be a decent purchase.

    Animals got to eat too, and their food don't come cheap, even with entry ticket fees and other fundings.
