In both the stage play and the anime, Yagi will play Greater Lophorina and Suga will play Western Parotia. The unit name was inspired by the combination of the two words “Gothic” and “Luck”, with the bird-of-paradise as a motif.

The two members share their thoughts.


“It’s a dream come true to have gotten a role in Kemono Friends, which I have been a mere fan till now. I am nervous and anxious since this is a first in many aspects for me, but I feel extremely happy to be involved in the Kemono Friends project. I will work my hardest!”


“I am very happy to be given this chance to make my debut in such a wonderful project. As a member of the Kemono Friends team, I would like to do my part to liven things up, so please look forward to it!!”
