Director Tatsuki Removed from Upcoming "Kemono Friends" Projects
Sad news for fans of Kemono Friends: although the series will continue with additional anime projects in the future, these projects will not have the TV series director, Tatsuki, at the helm. The news broke via a Tweet on Tatsuki’s official Twitter feed, which announced that Kadokawa would be moving in a different direction going forward.

Translations: I know this is sudden, but I’m no longer connected to the Kemono Friends anime. It seems that the official decision was handed down from Kadokawa. I’m sorry, I also feel really disappointed by this.
Tatsuki’s sudden removal is especially unexpected since just last week the director was responsible for directing a collaboration video between Kemono Friends and Nissin Foods. The news is already sending shockwaves through the Japanese fan community.
