Kemono Friends (Kemono Furenzu) is a classic series where the adorable can quickly turn into the sinister in the blink of an eye. Japari Park is full of adorable humanoid animals known as "Friends" who seem to live their everyday life with no clue as to what the reality of their situation is. Following the lead character, Serval, as she tries to help her new Friend discover what kind of animal she is, we go on an adventure that starts out innocent enough but quickly uncovers an evil truth.
If you're looking for more anime like Kemono Friends, there's plenty of horrific storylines disguised by cute artwork and the clever craft of a sickly sweet beginning. Such series include titles like Magi Madoka where the idea of your typical magical girl suddenly turns into a horror story. Made in Abyss is certainly in the same vein as it shows adorable characters revealing the horrible realities living within a chasm in the Earth. However, if you're just here for the cute half-animal characters, there's still plenty of innocent storylines that are portrayed in series like A Centaur's Life that will certainly give you warm thoughts.
