Terrible day for rain.
At least he didn't have to live to see what KF might become.
The show died and so did he.
The blood on Kadokawa's hands will never be cleansed
Please translate. I need more info.
This is some terrible news.
Are you happy now, mods?
Are you fucking happy that you deleted our threads so much that Grape failed to even post his final goodbye?
Tatsuki is removed from the anime
Grape-kun was so upset he laid down and died
How? Didn't they say it was only some molting or some shit?
Your free now, Grape-kun.
Rest in peace
This is fake
Please, this is fake right?
Humboldt penguin 's grape died yesterday.
Thank you very much for everyone who supported us so far. Also, thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end. And thank you for Grapes for a long time. Please take a good rest in Heaven. # Tobu animals park # Beam friends # grape
He went to meet his waifu for reals
Wow that progressed rather quickly from "appearing unwell" to "fucking dead".
Grape-kun the Humboldt penguin passed away yesterday. We would like to thank everyone for supporting him. And Hululu, thank you for watching over him to the very end. And Grape-kun, thank you for a long time together. Rest in peace in Heaven
The Humboldt penguin known as Grape-kun died yesterday. Thank you so much to those who supported him up until now. And also thanks to Fururu, who watched over him to the end. And thank you, Grape-kun, for being with us. Rest easy in heaven.
That's not tanoshii.
I hope he died caressing his waifu
Why the hell am I getting teary eyed? It's just a penguin
Because he was one of us
He found true love in 2D
He's gone to be with his wife in penguin heaven.
Penguin obsessed with a cardboard cartoon character instead of going back to its own community
Kemono Friends fucking killed an innocent animal
We lost a friend today
ONE OF US
May Grape-kun find Hululu in Japari Park.
wonder why Jason is trending
remember it's Friday the 13th
I can't wait for the backlash Kadokawa will receive, even if they did nothing directly.
He's in a better place now, friends.
At least fur seal Cape-chan got some fresh penguin meat for dinner tonight.
He's with Hululu now. Hes happy...
t-this isn't tanoshii
This is incredibly depressing.
John Kadokawa wasn't satisfied enough with killing the franchise.
Sorry I don't speak third world language like chinese.
rip in peace
He lived a fulfilling life. Rest in peace, buddy.
See You, Space Penguin.
Kemono Friends started as a cheap show made by a bunch of nobody yet it made such a great story both in and outside of the project
From the fans who fell in love with it, to the old men who was reminded of the youth they lost, the children who saw the wonders and awe, the celebrations we had for so long.
How did it turn out like this?
We just wanted to have some fun
I never imagined we would be parted so soon and I am very sad, but I hope he will continue to watch Hululu in Heaven
This is what you get for liking shitty shows.
KEMONO FRIENDS DIES
NOW GRAPE KUN DIES
I'M FOLLOWING YOU MY OLD FRIEND, I'LL SEE YOU SOON.
Took time to come.
Reverse edit when.
I'm not sad because I know that Grape-kun can now meet his waifu on the other side.
As one of us, Grape-kun can finally find his true happiness.
holy fuck it's time
Humboldt Penguin voice actor reaction.
I don't know why I thought that was the wrong tweet. I need to sleep.
F Rest in Peace
They better dedicate a Hululu episode to him next season.
I see the baiters are here
He's with his waifu now.
May he rest in peace in penguin heaven.
Honestly, after thaat Kadokawa fiasco, I'm having low hope for this series.
But, damn Tatsuki, we need you magic more than ever.
Grape-kun left us still loving for his waifu until to the last minute.
I just wish I can do that too.
Take a good rest in heaven
mah heart, mah soul
equilibrium. it's necessary to offset the fun in the world with pain
This is very upsetting news.
Thank you Grape-kun. You brought us the gift of unity and respect for our fellow creatures, whether they be man, Friend, or 'guin. Let us hope to continue your legacy for future generations to come.
So is this "Grape festival" happening?
It wasn't enough for Kadokawa to kill of KF, they have begun to kill off everyone who loved it
He lived the dream. Rest in peace, brother.
you better learn russian tho
Maybe they can hold a postmortem festival
Did anyone tell Ikuko-chan?
See did meet Grape-kun, and seemed to get along well with him.
Can you eat penguins?
he is with hululu now,rest in peace sweet prince
Kemono Friends is now officially dead.
Always remember the golden age. We experienced something incredible when it aired. It will never be repeated. Be happy that you were there to witness it.
AW FUCK YOU!
I legit teared up....
At least he's with his waifu now
They'll hold a funeral.
It's impossible to be happy for what we witnessed but not sad for what we lost.
Was this ever translated?
Don't worry, he lived his life as a happy husbando.
I'm sure there's 72 Hululus waiting for him in heaven.
read this news
Kemono Friends ED starts playing
fuck, I'm gonna lose it guys
We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.
Truly, thank you for loving Hululu and being excited about Kemono Friends with us. I didn't think our parting would come so soon, so feelings of loneliness abound, but I was thinking that it would be great if you could continue watching over Hululu from heaven.
I pray from the bottom of my heart for your happiness in the next world.
How can Grape-kun be in the sky, penguins can't fly you dumb fucks.
It's already Friday on Japan
Friday the 13th
Talk about a bad luck day...
Maybe he is now with this penguin.
He's above the clouds while they rain down on us.
Now you've done it.
It's only x
It was a death flag, user
I didn't ask for this.
I'm actually crying right now, over a dumb stupid penguin who loved his waifu
penguins can't fly
Not a problem.
"Why the fuck is a stupid penguin a worldwide trending topic?"
unwittingly an aged penguin becomes a part of the kemofure lore for eternity
At least post the real version fag
As sad as this is, Grape-Kun was twenty, the expected lifespan of a captive penguin.
Before meeting Hululu, Grape would have been old and lonely and would have had very low prospects of finding a mate, as old penguins usually are. He spent the last months of his life feeling happy and loved, before dying peacefully with his dignity intact. Mourn his death, but don't forget to celebrate his life and his happiness.
RIP you beautiful bastard.
The molting stuff was from one month ago or so. I think his appearance was more normal recently. However, in the last few days it had been said that its physical condition "changed" and it had been removed from exhibition.
his fault for liking mlp trash
F little buddy, hope you finally get to meet her now
F. RIP you glorious penguin.
I want to thank you so much for loving Fururu and for all the excitement that the two of us managed to cultivate for Kemono Friends. I'm filled with emotions of loneliness because I hadn't imagined that your parting would come this sudden, but even though you've gone to heaven, I have a feeling that you'll still want to watch over Fururu.
I pray for Grape-kun's happiness in the other world from the bottom of my heart.
Bye-bye, purple band
KF is cursed forever now
Season 2 needs to have a episode dedicated to him.
Sir Grape was far wiser and happy with his life than any of us humans. He didn't need internet, he didn't need money for buyfagging or trips, for he already had Hululu and food, which is all that he wanted. We must remember him by example for all the gifts he has given to the world.
Bless you user.
Kadokawa has gone too far
No fucking way.
Goodnight sweet penguin.
Was the theory that he was into the cut out because his eyesight was going in his old age? He was already like 80 in penguin years when they put Hululu there
How can you lift when Grape is dead?
We are on the part where Boss sacrificed himself, isn't it?
I hate KF and KFfags, but this is legitimately sad. Rest in piece, cute thing.
2chan is basically in emotional meltdown right now.
I don't think we've seen anything like it.
You may not be able to lift physically.
But you must lift your spirits
Love has no age, young user
Can we finally conclude that this was the greatest love and tragedy of our time? This is the same caliber as King Lear and Romeo and Juliet.
One penguin to unite the anons on both side of the pacific.
Please do share some screenshots with us.
see others having open sex everywhere everyday
a favorite cardboard which is far from reach and unable to hump
no friends no help
Anybody in this situation would have been killed by frustration in no time
this but unironically
He was more than just a bird, he was one of us.
They moved the cutout with him in his final days
don't do it
IN THE ARMS OF THE ANGEL
FLY AWAY FROM HERE
FROM THIS STARK COLD ZOO PEN
AND THE ENDLESSNESS THAT YOU FEEL
YOU ARE TORN FROM THE WRECKAGE
OF YOUR SILENT REVERIE
YOU'RE IN THE ARMS OF THE ANGEL
MAY YOU FIND SOME COMFORT HERE
KF season 2 is announced to be a trainwreck
Grape-kun's condition suddenly worsens
Gee, I wonder what caused this.
I just hope KF has a pacefull death at this rate, It was such a good series with a shit mobage and a ambitious multimedia project that ended up in a disaster.
Rather go with good memories than just seeing the outcome of a jewish company.
Other penguins in the zoo
yeah, Grape-kun's mate died.
He watched over the corpse for a few days and it vanished. He searched for his long lost mate to the ends of the earth and it switches to Wolf telling its story to friends.
Meanwhile, Pepapu found a lone penguin with a purple band who's really attached to Hululu. Hakase mentioned that he probably sees Hululu as his sister or mate, but Hakase told Hululu that she's no longer an animal but a friend, so they won't be able to communicate and their relationship would be hard.
She mentioned that the grape is also already old and his days are numbered, so Hululu hugs Grape.
I knew this day would come, but i didn't expect so fast! Much worse in wake of kadokawa fucking kemono friends.
Had a mate once
NTRd by a younger male
Old and set to be lonely for the remainder of his life, he sees a cardboard penguin in the distance
grape-kun is gone
cardboard cutout will be removed
all will be forgotten
it was all a dream
and the stress and frustration of unable to have real sex killed it
I wasn't expecting Friday the 13th to be like this.
I expect the zoo to frame the cutout and keep it on display somewhere.
Season 2 will be so bad it killed grape kun.
Cannot divide it?
The cutout shall be buried with him
bury me with my waifu
I feel like listening to linkin park
I can't fly through the sky
But I have dreams to be my wings...
They should bury it with him.
The idea of putting it on display again
but with a purple band on it would fuck me up though.
I can't say I'm particularly sad, but this moment is a landmark for KF. Grape-kun is finally united with Hululu.
I don't know moon, but I bet this would make me cry if I did.
Two threads up.
Which one do you want to autosage?
I think he was saying something like dividing them is too much.
Send the cutout and the dead bird to the VA.
Friendly reminder than in the animal kingdom, Hululu wouldn't mourn Grape-kun, just straight up eat him.
Ahhh thanks user.
Truly becoming one with the person you love.
I DON'T WANT TO UNDERSTAND ANYMORE, JAGUAR
In some tribes of humans consumption of the dead's brain/etc. is a part of funeral rites.
They tend to have higher instances of prion disorders because of that, though.
Oh fuck, the freaking sadness just got me.
Me and my husbando will finally become one.
*Proceeds to eat him*
Best love story ever.
"I want to thank you so much for loving Hururu and for all the excitement that the two of us managed to cultivate for Kemono Friends. I'm filled with emotions of loneliness because I hadn't imagined that your parting would come this sudden, but even though you've gone to heaven, I think you should keep watching over Hururu.
I pray for Grape-kun's happiness in the other world from the bottom of my heart."
I can grok that approach.
What is this pain in my chest?
How is our nippon cousin reacting ?
It is such a sad feeling that the symbolic existence of the excitement at that time has disappeared
Haa ... feeling that everything is heading to the end ...
I just wanted to see Grape living near the panel even once
It feels sad that I feel that the era has passed
I would like you to burial it with a cutout of hululu
You went to Japari park
He's with her now. Godspeed.
It's a lie, r-rght? Please tell me it's a lie!
doesnt understand it
It's a lie.
You're in a better place, friend.
Learn some fucking Japanese.
Don't thank him for being wrong.
分かる="to divide", but also "to understand". The etymology is obvious: if you understand something, you understand how to divide it into categories.
Google translate encountered 「わからん」and guessed wrong. doesn't speak any Japanese, and guessed wrong.
They are truly like us.
I loved his story, but now he can be with Hululu forever.
I never thought i'd cry over a penguin
rest in peace Grape, be good to your waifu now
The phrase being translated was 割り切り切れないもんだな.
Don't be sad because it's over, be happy that it happened. We'll be joining /ourpenguin/ in Gensokyo sooner or later and we'll all be united with our waifus.
You're getting things confused user
You meant Japari Park right?
See you, Space Cowboy.
He is where all anons go now, with his waifu
And for some resistances.
I'm not crying
I'm definitely not crying
At least watch the show before you post.
Gah this hit me hard.
Everything is clearer now
Life is just a dream, you know
That's never ending
no in the arms of an angel playing across the site
wasted opportunity desu
Why am I sad for a fucking penguim on the other side of the planet goddamnit
One bad news after another.
I'm genuinely sad.
yeah, that wasn't the content of the 2chan post
give it a fucking rest
a fucking rock in a Japanese zoo holds this much meaning to me
At least he's in a better place now.
He is probably somewhere better, taking a relaxing hike with Grumpy Jii-san.
He's one of a kind
RIP. He was one of us.
They should put a bronze statue of Grape-kun and Hululu where Hululu was placed previously
None of the other ones got me but this one did.
The suffering is beginning to register in my mind I've got to stop it.
Gimme more sad music to cry to.
If in season 2, they add the detail of Grape-kun sitting next to Fururu, that would be great.
How many episodes till Gin dies?
I mean, he was old
I was still not prepared
Time to rewatch episode 8 in honor of our guy.
I can't believe I'm about to cry about a penguin on the other side of the world.
Animals don't have souls
kadokawa planned this
S2 will have beta MC afterall
nobody will complain if he's the first male friend in the show
grape-kun is MC
Why would you post this
ok, that one hit me the hardest.
He's looking for his waifu up in heaven. He met a girl along the way. He waddled up to her to ask her if she had seen Hululu.
"Shounen", she replied. She pointed him in the right direction and he thanked her before walking away.
JUST FUCK MY SHIT UP
Sleep tight buddy
May you live in eternal happiness with Hululu always by your side on the afterlife. Farewell comrade.
/a/'s thing has always been Gensokyo. I'm not breaking tradition.
Grape got a moment.
But he's fine.
the saddest part about all this is that they don't even let penguins into heaven
One day, a hundred years from now, people will have forgotten about Japari Park and the whole thing will be dropped into Gensokyo neat as you please.
You really want /pol/ niggers flooding the board asking WTF is going on?
STOP IT NO PLEASE
They had a Grape-kun thread, it was okay but the mods pruned it.
Ok, I laughed.
Whole soundtrack is pretty rough
The whole world mourns grape.
The /pol/ Grape-kun thread was legitimately better than this one
we had grape-kun threads on /pol/
but whatever, how about just Sup Forums then
All of Grape's friends have some of him inside them, now more than ever.
Eating spaghetti and sauce right now.
When his condition took a turn for the worst, they moved him in to a private area with Hululu. He died while finally getting to see her up close.
I've been crying for like 20 minutes. I haven't been this sad over any recent famous deaths except this one. Random fucking bird.
He was a simple penguin.
Almost two years ago
How the time flies.
RIP you beloved penguin.
There was a penguin here. He's gone now.
is it raining in here? i think its raining.
Good night, Jii-san.
See you in Gensokyo.
I don’t get it. What was so special about this meme penguin? That he had to share a cage with a cardboard cutout of an anime character?
Neither do we.
My birthday present was Grape-kun dying.
I'll see you on the other side old friend
You must be fun at parties
Why even live? ;_;
He was looking at the cardboard cutout all the time and even did courting gestures to it.
You need to leave.
I don't get it. What's so special about your bait post? That you had to waste space in a thread in mourning?
go back to facebook faggot
He became obsessed with the anime cutout which hit close to some anons
For him. pass his legacy on, so he is not forgotten
That he had to share a cage with a cardboard cutout of an anime character and out of all the Penguins there was the only one to obsessively stand there all day watching the cutout and making legitimate penguin mating calls to the cutout. The penguin he was mated with dumped him for another penguin too and he was old.
I'm sure he'll get better guys.
Dead just like the show.
I didn't come onto Sup Forums for this.
I don't get it. Why even bother posting this shit on Sup Forums? That you can get some laughs off over the retards that reply to your bait?
Where can I buy a Hululu cut out?
I'm going to live for Grape-kun.
Because unlike celebrities, grape-kun knew 2D>3D
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA such is the fate of all delusional 2D chasing virgins.
Zookeepers let him have the cut-out nearby during his final days of sickness to comfort him
This is sad.
Too bad its true.
But just this time I want to believe this spiritual bullshit
what the fuck is going on in this webm
is it raining in here?
such is the fate of all
He's with her now...
Rest in peace, Grape-kun. Although you were a penguin, of all the souls I have ever encountered, yours was the most...human.
Textbook case of animal abuse
it looks like a deer is stuck in someone's car and he's trying to get it to go away
do you have a source or....
I'm far more upset right now than I should be. Fucking hell
Rest well Grape-kun wherever you might be with Hululu-chan by your side.
Let it be known that the worst kingdom of animals is unified tonight in mourning after you champ.
Tatsuki, do it for Grape. he believed in you
When will it stop? How much did he even refill?
Kadokawa assassinated Grape-kun to divert attention from the Tatsuki fiasco. ;_;7
AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
He was a true hero
※ 14/10 (Saturday), we will provide a floral tribute stand around the penguin house.
Also, thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end since starting collaboration event with Kemono Friends.
Never watched Kemono Friends, but, rest in peace Grape-senpai.
He died with his waifu at his side, and he loved her to his last breath.
Will you anons be able to say the same?
China was second world.
Rest in peace.
This is TATSUKI fault. Without apologizing, he stirred up otaku fan which caused stress on a penguin. He seems very psychopathic.
What if the friends were actually advanced beings all along?
Also, thanks to "Fururu" who watched Grape through to the end since starting collaboration event with "Kemono Friends".
Kemono Friends really is an emotional rollercoaster to be a fan of.
Nothing to be proud of if she's 2D.
Animals don't need to be permavirgins like us, those zookeepers tricked that dumb bird into indulging in the sins of man.
Thanks for the giggle in these trying times mate.
This Pingu-posting has gotten out of hand.
I sincerely hope so.
This one is too much.
I can't handle this
I didn't watch it nor did I pay attention to the drama but god dammn it I'm teary eyed
Newfag pls go
At least he had his waifu to the end
Penguins mate for life. They are strongly affectionate. It's possible that Grape-kun loved his waifu more than any of us can ever know.
Penguins mate for life
His mate of 7 years left him for some chad and got knocked up
That's not tanoshii
Ahhhhhhh fuck fuck FUCK don't do this to me
I think that may have been a joke.
First Blade Runner and now this
Penguins don't mate for life, they separate a lot.
could have had kids and a legacy if not for weebshit cutout
Some words from Hululu.
I'm not saying the death of an animal isn't of itself sad but
You guys are kind of autistic
he was too old to mate at that point.
I plan on it.
my post is in the screencap and seen by 2ch autists halfway across the world
He was old as fuck, I don't think his equipment was up to the task anymore.
I hope one day, you'll be reunited with the one you cherish
And it's literally all Kadokawa's fault.
Tatsuki probably wishes he could tweet about this (we all remember how active he used to be on Twitter
Can't because he has promised not to use Twitter until the nightmare is over
I guess it is just worse because of the previous Kadokawa Friends debacle. Everything is falling apart, death of the franchise and its real life mascot back to back. Hope is dwindling.
Grape-kun was more of a user than any of us could ever hope to be.
He posted an update a few days ago saying he's doing fine
What if by some freak chance he doesn't even know?
HOW DID HE DIE?
IT'S NOT FAIR
Spoken like a true outsider
Now fuck off back to wherever you came from
So what's the deal with KF Season 2? Is the main studio and director back on the job after the national outrage towards Kadokawa?
natural causes most likely, he was a very old penguin
His waifu by his side in his final moments. We should all be so lucky...
Enjoy your Kuru.
Tatsuki and Kadokawa are apparently still undergoing negotiations or something like that.
I wasn't prepared for these feelings
They're officially back in negotiations but no updates have been given since that was announced. So it is all up in the air now basically and fans are stuck between waiting patiently in hope of good news and outrage.
Kadokawa was forced back into the negotiation table after the outrage.
Still no updates though
Kadokawa execs poisoned him as an example for the KF community since they blame them for their loss of reputation.
Species name: Humboldt penguin
Date of Birth: 1996 year 4 May 16 days ( 21 years old)
I think about her every night just in case I die in my sleep.
anons around the world will find a picture of a dead penguin in their mailbox tomorrow morning
He lived without a single regret.
Use of Hululu cutout was not approved by committee
He finaly went to meet his waifu. dont be sad that he left us, be happy that they are finaly toggether
It was though.
I wonder if Grape-kun just had dementia.
It's just a dog.
You know, generally the fate of an elderly penguin like him would've been either death by a predator or starvation. Instead he got to live out the last of his life in a glorious TruNEET fashion. Free food and no work, with his waifu at his side right up until the very end.
Perhaps the world holds hope for all of us.
I haven't cried like this even when my own family died.
Now that's sad.
Are you ok, user?
They are finally together
I hope you're just memeing
I probably would have cried if a death in the family hadn't taken all my tears away.
I guess I'm not completely gone yet.
Why can't I stop crying
I guess it is.
I've had a breakdown a long time coming and this is it I suppose.
No. I was completely numb when they died. But this is tearing me apart.
I wonder what Grape would think if he knew hundreds of thousands of people were mourning his passing.
Not on this thread user, I'd take your shit another day but not today and not on this thread.
He was an elderly penguin whose kin abandoned, he had already lost his previous partner. Leave him alone.
I didn't need this today god damn you
There are penguins that have died before S2 could air.
My god, 2 hours since the official announcement and 75K tweets and counting
You are not crazy, that's normal when we lose a very close relative. Discharge what you want for Grape-kun
Welcome to Youkoso Japari Park, Grape-kun.
I don't think he'd understand
fuck me the fuck up
I knew it was coming. I still wasn't ready.
He truly was kemono friends...
I was going to fap and go to sleep but now I'm too depressed and crying about it.
You made me cry, user. Thanks, it's been welling up inside for a while now.
/o/ here to pay my respects. I pray someday that I too will find someone to adore as much as he did his waifu.
When /pol/ stops shit posting in order to pay respects you know someone truly great, and loved by all, has passed away.
Grape, thank you. Rest well. We are praying for your soul.
I don't even watch this show, but this somehow still hits me straight in the feels. Why?
Grape took the quick way out before Kadokawa could ruin his reputation by blaming KF's death on him
Not like this
no attachment to blood related family
feel an actual connection to some weeb penguin in a foreign land
Welcome to Sup Forums
Sleep tight sweet prince
Why did Kadokawa murder a penguin?
Send our greetings to Hululu when you meet her.
I'm gonna be honest, at first I was dumbfounded with the news, and I tried to laugh along with the other anons in this thread. but the more I read and felt for this penguin, the weight felt heavier and heavier in my heart, until I was bawling at the desk like I lost something truly dear to me.
All for a penguin with a waifu.
Dude fuck off
this would be more fitting now
IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL
A fucking pictures of rocks has broken me.
"I could really go for a beer and herring milkshake right now."
Serval gets out of bed late.
So I guess KemoFure really was too pure for this world. Everything related to the show is dissolving, all at once, as the universe rebalances itself.
I'll leave behind my tracks in this brand-new world
and hold onto my dreams tightly.
It's time to embark on my journey!
I can't fly though the sky,
but I have dreams to be my wings!
And that's why...
Serval-chan woke up early today it seems
Man, if one day Shikata dies I am suiciding.
What a black fucking day in history. Why did I have to be born to live in a time like this?
Lord have mercy. It's like the universe wants to completely kill this franchise.
Is everything falling apart?
Fuck don't make me think about that.
Hello Internet gets a penguin mascot
it immediately dies
Kemono Friends gets a penguin mascot
it immediately dies
I hate those kike mods. Can't even grieve in peace.
Well, kinzo was dead the before games started, so it's fitting anyway actually.
We need live update from that zoo.
Butler and co. should show up pretty soon.
You lived long enough to watch a penguin go down the 2D path and die with his waifu
This'll be in the history books
nigga its wishing him peace/happiness in the afterlife not praying for his soul
may he rest in peace in penguin heaven
It's actually raining here
Kadokawa killed him.
Kadokawa: okay we threw them a bone, now we have some breathing space while they speculate over our "negotiations"
two weeks later
wtf we're being bashed again venomously, what happened
a penguin has died, sir
2nd comment is also pretty good. wtf is this in referrence to?
I thought religion was unpopular in that part of the world. Perhaps they instinctively accept deism?
tfw Grape-kun will probably not be featured or referenced in the show
fall in love with 2D character
You are now manually listening to a slow piano version of Oozora Dreamer in your head.
RIP Grape-kun. A penguin that lived for his ideals.
Why the fuck am I crying over a fucking penguin?
They post that on just about everything on yaraon I think. I don't really get why, its probably some meme or something and I am too much of a newfag to get it.
I might blackout from drinking for the first time in years because a penguin with a waifu died and I can't stop crying
it's a more spiritual and metaphorical sense of heaven in the eastern world than it is in the western santa clausey conception of "oh boy walmart in the skies im on clouds woahhhh heaven dude this is awesome. haha god is a human because im made in his image woahhhhh gates of heaven yeahhh physical attributes in the afterlife hahaha im dumb as fuck"
FLY AWAY FROM HERE
Was Grape-kun /ourpenguin/?
They bring up god or Heaven in the vaguest way, very secular - like saying "bless you" when someone sneezes
If they want luck, they'd be like "oh god, oh stars, please help"
"Heaven" for them is just a very nice place in the sky that good people go to after death, most people don't subscribe to a major doctrine
It's their version of "dicks out for Harambe". Some kind of military salute I guess
Why is everyone saying he is going to meet Hululu? She didn't die
He's probably in heaven alone, waiting for her arrival
that will never happen
How will Kadokawa wash this blood off his hands?
I remember deluding myself about how short singing careers are in Japan back in 2007. Now all that seems so pathetic, my favorite singer Noriko Mitose barely composes anymore, of the AT trio only Shikata seems to be left, and even she is slowing down.
I feel increasingly incapable of connecting with anything on these last few years, Kemono Friends was an exception, and look how that turned out.
It's playing off the old meme that you enter Gensokyo/your waifu's world/2D anime universe when you die
How's the twitter trending?
Did it got to number 1?
no, he got Isekaied to the japari park
He's in a better place now. They can finally be together.
Penguins are shit anyways.
This is the official end to the Kemono Friends saga.
Where the good animals go when they die?
Grape-kun and Cirno are good friends now
Penguins mate for life
Only certain species.
No they are not.
Depends on your cosmology, if you believe in the god of jews/Christians/Islam, nowhere.
Penguins should be climbing mountains and hills, and that didn't stop one of them.
Go away, idiot fairy.
Animal heaven, duh.
Grape kun is in heaven with his waifu and you not
I had actually planned to go and see Grape-kun on my trip to Japan next month.
Matsuki Miyu's died almost 2 years ago
Sugar Candy Mountain
Do you think Arai is the kind of girl that'd get fat after getting married?
What a retarded post.
I went to Tobu Zoon back in August and spent like 30 minutes watching the penguins. That little penguin never moved from that spot. RIP little buddy, you lived the dream for us.
Well, Grape-kun, it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your wing, I think you can touch my hand.
For now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye, my Friend. Endless love. See you down the road.
Well then, time to fix that. See you there.
i'm going to go listen to radiohead and cry
...2 fucking years? It felt like just a few months ago.
This penguin puts most user to shame.
Jesus Christ, this is getting to me.
So why was that cardboard put in the zoo in the first place? To advertise the show?
Why is it removed now?
spent like 30 minutes
spent around 30 minutes*
DON'T YOU FUCKING REMIND ME
Is Buddhism and Shintoism suddenly not religion?
Is there a Friend who was more loyal?
Here's hoping he's with Hululu forever now.
It was put in there as a special event for the show yes.
Then they were all removed, but grape-kun got suicidally depressed his waifu was gone.
They put his back. Now he's gone so they took it out.
It was a partnership between the series and a few zoos to encourage people to go to the zoo more often.
More like afterworld.
Good lord I remember my tears flowing
People were losing it everywhere on this board
And then for some reason news of her death was trending on Facebook of all places
So? Do not write like a retard.
Please go and let us grieve. Thank you.
mono no aware
I'm not even the person you replied to.
it's a more spiritual and metaphorical sense of heaven in the eastern world
Chinks literally think you can send money and wealth to people in heaven, dude.
calling someone autistic
in a thread full of people crying over a penguin on the opposite side of the planet
a penguin with a waifu
Nobody would care if he wasn't attached to the cut-out.
Cirno I love you sweetie but this is a really bad time.
Yes, they are.
Nothing autistic about mourning the loss of a kindred spirit.
Yeah well that's chinks
Nips are suspicious of religion ever since all those new cults sprang up back when Aum Shinrikyo was a thing
RIP in peace Grape-kun. I hope you finally meet your waifu.
What is this?
At least he died next to his waifu, truly a gentleman
niggas actually dead
and so is his waifu
Irrelevant, the fact you used "I" in written English is sufficient as a reason to call you a retard.
RIP you magnificent bastard!
May this mark the end of an era
That's the point
We care because he was one of us
penguin has IRL wife
unbeknownst to him, 3DPD exists in all forms
Zoo gives him 2D waifu
he never goes falls for 3D again
Oh why does it hurt?
What did user mean by this?
An illustration Aoki Ume did for Matsuki Miyu's memorial birthday last year.
Thread theme song
It's the VA of the cake teacher from Hidamari Sketch who ironically also wanted to get married with anybody.
That animals don't have souls for that particular group of religions.
endless loop of
Because I wasn't sad enough already.
the penguin stops at the end to look back, as if to say "Don't worry, it's okay!"
this is probably what Grape-kun wants to tell us, if he has the chance.
stay away from grape you stupid fairy
They made merch based on a dead person? Are you kidding me?
I JUST WOKE UP AND LEARNT ABOUT THIS
GRAPE-KUN, TELL ME THIS ISN'T TRUE
GRAPE-KUN I'M SORRY FOR NOT BEING THERE
Modfags are complete chodes for not acknowledging this passing.
It was a fundraiser user
Anyone want to join me in a toast? I think I'm going to be drinking the rest of the night. Go ahead and raise a glass.
You are irreplaceable
We'll be friends forever
no no no no no no no no no
why would you do this
now i can never listen to the song the same way again
they raised money to promote awareness for the disease that killed her
I'm a newfag
Maybe it's a good thing, they ruin everything they touch
For me it's enough that other boards caught notice. I think /jp/, /an/, /pol/ and /v/ paid tribute
call a fairy stupid
can't recognize a penguin
One more reason to ditch the Abrahamic faiths.
They aren't going to understand why that person just wrote F.
lets all sing for grape--kun
"the universe is only as large as my town"
You people and your small minds are why humans always fail
So you took a screencap from a thread about a screencap from this thread?
MIDORI-CHAN YOU FUCKING WHORE
Where did all this time fucking go.
Honestly I wasn't able to stomach watching anything with her voicework since.
Someone already explained "Press F for Respect" to nips.
Life will always be cruel.
mfw I'll never get a (You) from them.
Don't ever say that in front of a Mexican, the shared cosmogony with Mayans make some people proud of be called son of a bitch, in their deluge myth it was a Doggo that served as a concubine for the humanity to be recreated after the catastrophe thus making dogs our brothers, this is a continuation of the myth of Kukulcan/Quetzalcoatl where Quetzalcoatl cut his testicles to give life to mankind and Xolotl rips off his face to use it and mold an eternal friend to Quetzalcoatl creations.
In their cosmogony dogs were the ones who guided mankind to afterlife, even with Christianity running rampant the myth of the dog never left us and to this day Mexicans unite in tears when a doggo acts like a good boy and mourns the death of their human.
Several catholic burials in my city have a place where the urn of the dog was placed to honor the one an true friend we have in this world.
Not him but I learned something new today
This is pretty cool
2chan has fucking upboats now
Please, someone tell me, why I'm crying so much for a penguin
I didn't drop a tear in the funerals of all my grand parents
He was so pure
Kemonofriends killed by Kadokawa last week
Grape killed today
Hahaha, franchise is confirmed dead.
Reposting in the main thread
Mfw Kadokawa burns down the Hululu cutout
why's it gotta hurt so much
Welp, I think I'm dead inside since I can't cry.
On that day, we lost something irreplaceable.
Do you think he felt true happiness as he passed away with his waifu by his side? Slowly closing his eyes while doing his best to look at her, like a dog who looks at his owner as he's being put down?
Americans always post Homer (Simpson)
First comment on every post is usually about ejaculating and he's telling them not to this time.
I don't know if penguins can feel happiness but he was no doubt comforted by her presence as he closed his eyes forever
(formerly the greek)
What if Kadokawa killed Grape-kun so people could forget about what happened with Tatsuki?
This picture is from 4 days ago.
Even at night he wanted to be with her, he was happy until the end
How did they realize realize the penguin was depressed because a piece of cardboard was removed?
Went to Tobu zoo twice, both times he was dutifully guarding over her. I can't handle seeing that rock empty right now.
Are happiness and comfort not related? Animals can feel a wide range of emotions.
Today, I weep for a penguin I never knew but was closer to than people
I just got home and I can't believe Grape-kun is fucking dead. Just like the threads.
main thread just died with 710+ posts
glad people cared about Grape kun
What is this feeling? It's weird, but not pain. I'm scared. At least you are here with me you're always with me, I just wish you interacted more. I'm going to sleep for a bit, maybe this feeling will pass, good night Hululu see you tomorrow, thank you for everything.
Why does everything I love leave me in the end?
In the arms of an angel, fly away from here
One of the replies is speculating maybe the sudden swings in temperature hit his old frail body hard
He literally did not move for hours that it kept forgetting to eat because of it.
Remember the first time we heard about grape-kun?
He was so happy
This will always be beyond insane. I don't think anybody expected this.
That's just how time works, user.
Frame 1-9 : Us all watching the show together
Frame 10-12: Kadokawa betrayal
Frame 13: Grape-kun
Frame 14-15: Us in a few days
I have a surgery tomorrow user
That happens all the time, user.
Shit user, you're gonna make me start crying again.
I hope to not see any user trying to claim Hululu in Waifu threads
Post thread link?
He just finished his catastrophic molt too.
Rest in piece little penguin.
Never had a pet, have you? Keepers interact with their charges several times a day, they can tell when behaviors are out of the normal range. Calling it depression might be us projecting a tad, but I've seen it in dogs, cats, and birds when things, living or otherwise, go away.
That was scary as fuck when it got posted way back when. He legit looked like he got chaos dunked into a vat of acid or something.
I still feel sad when songs/voice tracks featuring her end up in my random playlist.
Let us not stay sad for he was truly happy
OK I have recovered enough to see more clearly. There is something that most of us, not being zoologists, overlooked about Humboldt penguins. They do not die like most animals, they simply ascend to a new level of power, leaving their primitive flesh behind. Grape did not "die" as most creatures naturally do. They travel into the mountains or another source of rock that is charged by ley lines or strong emotions, which empowers their transformation. When this happens, they Are immortal wise ones who carry their lifetime of wisdom and joy with them. They spread this throughout the world, dispersing raw joy in an almost elemental form.
We are weak and flawed and mortal and thus cannot understand what it means to live in true joy with your waifu, leading insight to all young penguins. He did not watch a piece of lifeless carboard. He lent the cardboard life and watched over it until it became a link, a conduit to translate his life and warmth through a totem, into the human world to tell us that we, too, can know love,and know what it means to truly life.
He now, in his purest form of life and love eternal, wishes us not to mourn. We need not watch over Grape-kun, for he watches over us. We need not cry for him, because he is crying for US.
This fucking guy
brb killing myself for this uncalled for meme
It's weird to think that someone will probably read about this somehow in the future decades. This penguin just got immortalized.
inb4 they build him a shrine
If the keepers won't some crazy otaku will
less than a month before death
go through extremely painful molting process one last time
got to look good for Hululu in heaven
Mass murders and daily killings of people don't even stir a single ounce of emotion for me but it rained hard when I heard this little penguin passed on. Why is that?
Some blacksmith fan will make a bronze statue of Grape and offer it to the zoo.
Because you knew his story.
he died doing what he loved, more than we can say for ourselves
The former are just statistics. The latter hits close to home.
You and the penguin enjoyed something together
You shared a moment
You had a personal connection with him
Does Japan have some rules/laws regarding an "official" enshrining?
If they can enshrine station manager cats as gods, can't they do the same with a penguin?
He was one of us, so of course you feel the passing of a fellow tribe member more intensely that the passing of a stranger.
Because it was just an innocent little animal that had a sweet affection for a char from a show you like/love. He became by a longshot the most awesome, amazing penguin in the world to many in these threads; it's no surprise in that context.
hell if I know. did Lucky Star ever get a shrine?
A true hero to all penguins
We'll lower our front tails to salute him
Grape-kun must be so excited to meet his waifu, I bet she's excited to meet him too
Goodnight, sweet prince.
The number one cause of animal deaths are also from humans. What do you gotta say to the people that horribly abuse, maim, and murder animals, huh? Are you trying to devalue a life because you're so cynical and edgy?
I'm sick of you. Go away.
Will the zoo try to force another Grape-kun just to keep the crowds and money coming in?
They should just make him a deity just like they did with animals and people before. I mean, if you believe and are crazy enough literally anything can become a deity.
But she's not dead.
I don't think they can find another penguin with such a tragic past and autism.
Maybe he'll get a statue like Nils Olav?
The same reason you mourn for the ones you care for, but aren't as bothered by mass murders and daily killings. If you somehow are affected by those, and aren't just being "clever" and edgy, then you are a saint.
Grape-kun has earned his chance to be the only male who deserved to be animated and put into Japari Park..
a tragic past and autism
finally a job I'm qualified for!
I've heard that so often that I had never realized it was incorrect, thanks for the grammar lesson, user.
Grape-kun was never forced and anyway the otaku would catch on pretty quick if they put on an act
You aren't a cute penguin though.
No, they literally have thousands of shrines for dumb shit.
Grape-kun movie when?
No, the penguin handlers are Tobu zoo are good people.
It would be cool if they could mention this during the credits or something. This story definitely seems popular enough to be credited in-series.
to be animated and put into Japari Park
user, stop. There will never be a S2 anymore.
Grape-kun must be in Japari park right now, Serval is trying to guess his species while he's looking for Hululu
RIP grape, RIP thread.
Good, now I have my waifu all to myself and not some dumb penguin
Hululu is crying
Farewell from /m/, Grape-kun... where you are going they all get wings.
Fuck, Grape-kun's front tail will be alive in 2D.
RIP penguin friend. You will not be forgotten. He's probably finally living the 2D life now. His existence was truly a blessing.
He's with his waifu now.
F little dude.
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away... in the end
Humboldts live in Chile
Somebody fucked up.
Same, a-am I broken?
Had to put down the family doggo last year
seeing all of her stuff still out in the garage when we got back, almost like she was still there
I did not need to be reminded of this feel user
At least he died happy
EVERYTHING I LOVE JUST DIES.
goodbye little buddy
Part of the Antarctica is Chilean soil, friend.
And Kemono Friends was just a show.
Cute little penguin. Cute little wife. I wonder if this is the first documented case of such a thing in animals.
No it's not. A bunch of them also post on this place called Sup Forums and talk about how deeply in love they are with drawings too
Rest in piece
My wife is more than just a drawing!
Image limit reached
Even if I could post images, I don't think I could find a reaction face to show how this made me feel.
Just like Grape, he was more than just a penguin. He was a friend and he had a waifu.
WHY IS THIS NOT STICKIED
Mod hates Kemono Friends
If the announcement of index s3 didn't get a sticky what makes you think a penguin will?
Because they know that it would cause asspain/shitposting on principle.
Mods have no heart.
Barely anything gets stickied anymore.
Only asking for trouble with a sticky.
Mods are kadokawa.
What was the last thing that got stickied? Last thing I remember was ep 18 of Kill la Kill.
He was a friend! Don't insult him.
FLCL s2 or JIBUN WOOOO S3 or something.
Why do you want this stickied? You're asking for more trouble.
This shouldn't get me as sad as it is...
The /an/ thread on Grape is still ticking along.
Code Geass S3. This is worthy of another sticky.
