    Seriously, all my Japanese Otaku friends are watching this show and telling me to watch it. I guess it's finally time to watch Kemono Friends...

    Kemono Friends is currently:

    • 3rd most discussed show on Futaba (only behind Madoka and Haruhi)

    • 2nd most watched show on Nico (for ep 1). It just reaches 4 mil yesterday.

    • Manage to trend worldwide twice, with this time reaching 2nd and only beaten by Messi news.

    It's not just a hit, the series is a giant. I think the anime industry will finally learn a lesson about how a series doesn't need to have a grand budget, tons of promotion or A-list seiyuu to gain momentum. The magic formula are simply a good story, genuine characters and passion from the creators.

    And to think the game shut down before this aired.

    What exactly does "Niconico Anime Special" mean?
    From the comments i took that Niconico is some kind of streaming service in Japan (Anime + Youtube + Soundcloud-ish !?). Does it have some kind of special Broadcasting for some Anime? If i remember correctly, it can't be related to special episodes for the listed anime, because some don't have special episodes.
