Well-known for their anime and mobile game, Kemono Friend’s new anime project, Kemono Friends 2, announced on 5 November the birth of a new two-member unit “Gothic×Luck”.
The two members, Mashiro Yagi and Madoka Suga, were chosen from an audition which was held in September. The new unit will make their debut on a stage play which will take place on 8 November and will play their characters for the upcoming Kemono Friends 2 anime which will air on January 2019.
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.
Previously, a new visual was released on the official Kemono Friends Twitter account, featuring the two characters, Greater Lophorina and Western Parotia.
