Grape-kun has passed away. Pay your respects here.
Rest in peace, old man.
Grape-kun has gone to join his waifu ;_;
Do pengis go to heaven when they die?
Are you fucking serious?
Am going to fuck his waifu.
Grape currently the top twitter trend in japan.
A nation mourns.
See you next time, space penguin. At least you're with your waifu now
i hope that he reaches the penguin heaven. and can eat all the fish that he wants.
ashes to ashes
dust to dust
Did he die with his waifu by his side?
He's in Japari Park now, and has a lifetime pass to all the PPP shows
Another one has fallen from the ranks.
The translations in the other thread suggest yes
all pengis go to heaven
I'm far more upset then I should be
See you on the other side
he knew it was the only way to meet his waifu
la la la la
la la la la
oh welcome to the Japari Park
Enjoy the park Grape-kun.
He lived like we all wish we could; devoted caretakers, free food, and nobody taking his waifu away. Here's hoping S2 is a success, and is in honor of Grape-kun; the first animal to have an anime waifu.
Also, thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end
Noot in peace ;_;
grape would have died months ago if hululu didn't convince him to keep living
You're free pal. Go meet your loved one. RIP
i haven't cried like this since episode 12
Now that the dust has settled
at his grave
can we all agree
he lived a better life than all of us?
Also, thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end
If only we could all be so lucky.
people thought he would get bored
he stayed faithful to the very end
he spent the last year of his life with his waifu
We all die.
All of us.
We're all going to attend his funeral service, right?
Did Grape-kun suffer, or did he die happy?
I am unreasonably sad.
Why did it have to be like this?
He was one of us
May he find his waifu in the afterlife
I plan to live forever of course,
but barring that I'd settle for a couple thousand years
even 500 would be pretty nice.
Yes, Kadokawa will stream it for a small fee.
This is Kadokawa's fault.
He died of a broken heart.
Also, thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end
DED as Kemonofriends
Goodbye, Grape-kun. One day I will follow you.
These losses are too huge.
NOOT in peace you old penguin.
At least he's with his waifu now
I always thought that was numb enough to stop caring about things.
Now this come and make me cry like a little bitch.
Come join us in mourning on /pol/
Kadokawa wins again!
He's in the big Japari Park in the sky now. Stay strong anons, it's what Grape-kun would have wanted.
On that note, I'm having a drink for Grape-kun. A toast to our black and white friend, may he rest in peace.
We should pen an obituary to a true friend who's now in a better place.
Here's what happened:
The zoo knows that Kemono Friends is a dead franchise and they aren't going to make any more money off of it. Therefore, they wanted to get rid of the stupid ugly animegirl cutout in the penguin exhibit. The thing is, if they got rid of it, they would have people bitching and moaning at them saying they were being mean to the penguin, so they intentionally drugged Grape's food to kill him off so then they could get rid of the eyesore cardboard cutout without people complaining.
They're probably going to auction it off for money too.
Be happy for Grape-kun
He found true love in his final days on the mortal plane
I'm legit upset.
I will not forget him.
I'd believe you if this was a sudden death but we've known about his age and health for a while now.
You have to go back
As if things couldn't get any fucking worse.
How is this even related to /pol/?
Will Tatsuki comment?
I need his guidance more than ever.
Grape was 20 years old. He lived the full lifespan of his kind.
Rest easy old man
I hope he can finally be with his waifu in penguin heaven.
He killed himself to be with his waifu. He had more courage than any of us.
Milky Suicide is just a joke
This upsets me more then it should.
He's with Grumpy Jii-san now.
He died of old age. Don't ruin his passing with your weeb shit
it was never a joke.
t. milky ghost
Not him but there are a lot of anime watchers on /pol/
Also something something 3d women are shit
How strange, it's rainning inside my house...
Good. I find no sympathy for kemonoshitters
I always knew all you furryfags were normalfags.
At least he died in love. It would have been worse if he died after having Hululu taken away.
t. touhou/kancolle insecure faget
I can't believe Kadokawa killed Grape-kun
Grape-kun...had a hard life.
He needs some time to rest.
Anon bargains with mortality
quickly begins to compromise
dies aged 30
being a nazi unironically
neck yourself you autistic fuck
He's in a better place now.
He's in heaven with with his waifu, all is right in the world.
Fuck man, that penguin had more balls to love his waifu than me.
I'm being memed on right? Grape-kun isn't actually dead right? You guys are just pulling a fast one on me because I can't read japaense right?
His condition suddenly got worse yesterday, and he was removed from the enclosure (with Hululu) to be looked after more closely.
Always figured they were too hiel hitler or whatever for that.
Someone post that mountain picture. I need to cry.
Jesus fuck somebody decided to go full fucking no survivors on everything related to this franchise didn't they? Glad I never got involved in this series, watch your back everyone.
God favors Kadokawa than furry shitters
The world is a cruel place
And those who understand, are cruellest of all
But even angels cannot fly on broken wings forever
There will be no dawn
There will be no tomorrow
The angel falls tonight
Rest now, sweet Grape-kun.
Grape kun was not a faggot
This was a real life penguin
Looks like death really destroyed this penguins illusions.
I thought they brought her with him
Wow, you're a friend who's good at ruining websites! すご～い！
I don't think he notice the difference for some reason.
Rest in peace, Grape-ojiisan. You will be sorely missed, but you lived for your wife, and that I can respect.
Nigga this website was born as an anime site, all the fucking boards have anime posters but you don't see fucking /sp/ making threads about that shit, they aren't THAT autistic
Requesting the national geographic webm of the little penguin killing itself walking to the emptiness
/pol/ is the new /b/ user. Anything goes there
So when does the Mod come in a threaten to ban us all?
who started cutting onions, god damnit
killed by kadokawa
Thanks to Hululu who watched Grape through to the end
He has retuned home lads.
One day we will follow his example.
this is too sad,but i`m sure he is somewhere with hululu now,i want to beileve that
Yes, they got them both. As silly as it sounds, they probably put her with him while trying to see his situation.
She probably calmed him.
We live in dark times. Yet the skies will only grow darker.
Report the thread
I'll miss you little buddy.
Fuck, I'm actually crying for a freaking bird on the other side of the world, and I'm not ashamed to admit it, rest in peace noble bird, you truly were one of us.
/pol/ is full of alt right neckbeards what did you expect
Hearty laugh in dark times
Let's all be friends just for today.
This is not anime/manga too.

Grape-kun dies during this whole scandal
Kadokawa caves and gives Tatsuki and the team back free creative control
S2 is a worthy successor to S1
Let this day be remembered as the day an old man saved us all
See you space cowboy
rest in peace grapers
RIP in peace. He was truly, /ourpenguin/
Normally I would tell you to go and fuck yourself, but this irrelevant bird dying of natural causes has moved me. Ok.
God speed little buddy, you're in a better place now. F
Grape-kun will become a symbol of Kadokawa's tyranny
Kadokawa caves and gives Tatsuki and the team back free creative control
We can dream.
I sure wish I could think as positively as you.
This was a warning from Kadokawa, "Stop making trouble or we will kill you, just like we killed the penguin"
Midnight, not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone in the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan
Memory all alone in the moonlight
I can smile happy your days
( I can dream of the old days)
Life was beautiful then
I remember the time
I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
Every street lamp seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
And the street lamp gutters
And soon it will be morning
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin
Burnt out ends of smoky days
The still cold smell of morning
A street lamp dies ,another night is over
Another day is dawning, touch me
It is so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun
damn rip grape-kun
that picture got me
KIMI TO NATSU NO OWARI
I'm sorry user, but Kadokawa doesn't give a fuck. They are a heartless machine that only cares for itself. I'd be surprised if they even know about Grape-kun.
Why does everything keep tumbling down? See you old man.
its okay,he is with hululu now
I'm tearing up for a penguin that died after discovering true 2D love
He truly was the most patrician pengi in the world. RIP, Grape-kun.
Is it time
rough tl time
Many years ago– there was a married penguin couple
The concept of marriage may be lost to us Friends…
But it involves finding a special someone, becoming close and making children…
…you’d get a general idea from watching all the animals, right?
That penguin couple lived together happily for a long time…
But finally the laws of nature parted them
…the surviving husband did not go searching for a new mate…
But simply returned to the same place after meals
Even as his motionless wife rotted away and changed her form…
His feelings did not change, and he continued to stay close to her
Mods, be based for once and make this a stickied thread. It's a sad day for the anime community in the entire world.
He can't keep getting away with it
Come on user.
Still a lovely ED.
If you guys have never read the translated lyrics from Boku no Friend, now is probably a bad time.
if there's already a translated version someone pls dump
Don't push our luck.
There's already another thread of this.
Frankly, I don't like it split and I don't know how to convince both threads to use just one.
People are going to bitch and try to force the idea that KF is furry shit or MLP either way, no one will be happy.
Mods please sticky this thread. If /mu/ gets a thread when musicians die, surely we get one when Grape-kun dies.
Fuck now I remembered that bird, you can't convince me that bird wasn't in terrible pain over the death of its chick.
Truly the only image that fits, fucking Christ I'm actually crying over Grape, at least they let him have his cutout to the end apparently.
A friend has died.
Haven't watched Kemono Friends.
But this is a sad sad day. May he be with his waifu.
I'm crying like a bitch.
he's in a better place now...
is that maaya sakamoto?
Yes, let's invite all the shitposters to run wild in this thread!
You can't convince a mod to have a sticky when there's a violation of two threads of the same topic up.
Most times someone dies and gets a sticky the sticky goes up after the board has already made like fifty threads about it.
–But one day, he returned to the spot as usual after eating…
But his beloved wife was nowhere to be seen
The husband thought, if she is not here–
My wife must be somewhere else in this world
He crossed distant mountains
And swam across the seven seas, searching for his wife
One look and I would know her
Even if she had changed her form–
I will find her no matter what it takes
…no matter if she does not remember me
I want to spend the time I have left…
By her side, that’s all I want
–This is the story of a “great penguin” traveling and searching for his final place
Even now, this penguin may be continuing his journey somewhere… searching for his wife
…while dreaming of those happy days in the past
No. Go watch Symphogear.
Am I actually crying over a fucking penguin
Ive never even seen Kemono Friends for fucks sake
I don't even watched the show and i'm ehre crying about a penguin in japan
when were you when grape dies?
i was sat at home eating japari butter when luck bseat ring
'grape is kill'
truly, we are in a world of suffering
Holy shit, this + the season 2 fiasco is just depressing. I wonder if the penguin got stressed or something and just died.
Nigga don't remind me, that song made me feel emotions I don't need right now.
Does this mean Hululu is officially off-limits as a waifu?
what happened with s2? i wasnt following news
I had a terrible week and seeing this made me cry again
I hope he's feasting on Japari buns in Japari Park now
Rest in peace, you beautiful bastard
May you find your waifu in heaven
There are two threads up.
Which one do you want to autosage?
It's all Kadokawa's fault
Fuck me, I never thought I would actually cry this much over the death of a penguin.
Yes, user. Their love story shall be kept intact and pure.
Tatsuki and co. weren't rehired for it. Shitstorm ensued.
Are you as admirable as that penguin?
this is not tanoshi
he was a better man than all of us
When 2017 started I thought it would be a good year. Looks like it was too good to be true.
It's more sad if you know the story.
Grape-kun was just an ordinary, boring Humboldt Penguin
During KF, they had a promotion with Grape's zoo
Animals across the zoo got cutouts of their anime counterpart. Hululu, the Humboldt Penguin Friend, was on a rock in the penguin exhibit
Grape eventually fell in love with the image, and always looked up to it. Literally.
He had to be fed by hand for the most part because he loved the cutout
One day, they took down the cutout, and Grape was depressed. He wouldn't do anything.
They put the cutout back, and Grape was back to being happy
Even after the promotion, they got to keep the cutout for Grape-kun. Grape-kun now has his own merch, possibly the only non-domesticated animal anime fan.
Whenever bad weather threatened the cutout, the staff would hide it until the weather cleared up. They cared for it just so Grape would remain happy.
Then today happened
Grape is a wonderful animal. Maybe not a story as sad as Old Yeller, but he was one hell of a penguin.
Uuu… sniff… w-what happened to his wife…?
Where did she go…?
I wonder… who knows. But if there is one possibility I may offer…
I think a sandstar hit his wife’s body… Perhaps she found friends… and is living somewhere as a Friend
It’s sad to think… but just as Friends that return to being animals lose their memories… I’m sure all that will remain when you become a Friend… is one’s habits carved into their life
That’s so sad…! That’s heartbreaking…!
Hey now… don’t cry so much
…this is just a story I thought of. It came to me when I saw a penguin walking in an unusual place a while ago
Reality is stranger than fiction… only the original person knows the truth
Next up is a new story about horror detective Girogiro!
BD rips are out, so you might as well treat yourselves.
fucking corporate asshats, every time
This gets me, my lad
Now I am really feeling it
Oh, isn’t that a Humboldt penguin?
Unusual to see one here. He’s just like Hululu!
O-Oi! What’s wrong Hululu…!?
I don’t know…
Are you hurt anywhere…!?
I don’t know… is it… because I’m hungry…?
You just ate a minute ago!
crying my eyes out over a fucking penguin
what is wrong with me
did KF do this to me or was I always like this
People thinking there's some conspiracy that Grape-kun was killed
Do you people realize that Grape-kun was an old man by the time he had his waifu? He was having health issues before that cutout
He was TWENTY and that's like HUNDRED in Humboldt Penguin years
He lived a good life
Thread theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SiylvmFI_8
You forgot to say that his previous partner left him for a younger penguin and that Grape was too old to swim on his own but still courting Hululu, on its free time Grape loved to just lay close to the cut out, hence why he missed some meals.
I'm literally crying right now.
Thank you very much you motherfucker, now i'm crying.
Rip Grape Kun.
Oh I know the story, still made me cry more than alot of other things. I'm glad he was happy for the last few months of his life ;_;
Right, my bad. Grape really had it rough prior to the cutout.
we may all have our waifu but he is the only being on this earth that won his waifu
from this day no man shall take hululu as their waifu. it is truly forbidden
He lived a good life
He lived a hard life until he met his waifu
Jokes on you faggot. She's a widow now. That means widow cake is on the menu!
Actual thread theme https://youtu.be/OoiABnu1nxM
the fucking VA response
this is not what i wanted today
I think y-san won his waifu, theres also that user who asked the people who make the neptune games for blanc's hand in marriage and they said yes
Blocked for copyright grounds. Fuck it
I'm sure she was a great comfort to him in his old age. ;_;
I teared up at this. I didn't think something like this would actually make me feel so sad.
Pingu is gonna make his move now, and you can't do anything about it!
His parther fucking NTR him for other penguin, something untold for this species that usually makes couples for lifetime.
did KF do this to me or was I always like this
The magic of KF is that it mak a you nostalgic for simple of stuff and remember simpler times, for me it was watching Attenborough documentaries in Discovery when I was a kid.
Anyways the fact is that Kemono makes you actually care about the animals and remember the fun of exploring and going in a little adventure, it didn't make you this way, it just made you remember of a more innocent time in wich animals were awesome and you started caring for this little guy.
RIP Grape, we are glad we knew you.
Oh god as if I wasn't crying enough already
\when you die an old man, cuddled up next to your waifus daki, Grape-kun will appear before you with Hululu and your waifu and deliver you from this world.
Machine translation is too nonsensical. Translation please?
He just won’t leave Hululu’s side!
Hm… we have also observed gestures similar to courting
At the very least… there is no doubt he holds an unusual passion for her
Hm… love at first sight, perhaps… Or possibly
His natural instincts may have picked up that she was once his sibling or wife…
So… what do you want to do?
What do you mean…?
When we become Friends, we gain human features…
But in exchange our ability to communicate with wild animals is much lessened
–In other words, whatever the reason, animals usually… would be happiest living with other animals of their kind, not with Friends
If you truly care for this penguin… it may be kinder to push him away
Just hit him with that rainbow shit and make him a friend!
Shit. Nips do know that we are getting emotional about a bird from half a world away.
I haven't watched KF, is it at all possible to write him in as a character?
brb, Japari Park
Watching them watching us watching them
Can't. Canon says that all animals turn female when becoming a friend. There are no male friends allowed.
There hasn't been a male character in the whole series and I don't think anyone in the power to do so can so no, no they can't
Fuck I love the internet. Y'all faggot are the worst for making me feel like this and the best for sharing the feeling.
Grape trending worldwide.
trending globally on Twitter
Rest in pepperonis, old man.
I'm no wizard with Japanese, and I'm working off of a mix of machine translation and what little I know from watching too much anime.
He liked Hululu.
Thanks, Kemono Friends, for bringing us together.
I did not think that farewell wouldl come so soon, so I'm full of lonesome feelings.
But, I think that I want you to watch over Hululu even if you go to heaven.
From the bottom of my hear, I pray for your happiness Grape.
I could be a bit off, but this is as best as my JP knowledge goes. Excuse me while I clean up my keyboard, I cried a bit harder when trying to read it.
That fucking Jaguar emoji
Post funeral music for Grape-kun
Dont forget to drink in his honor, anons. He would have wanted us to. Raise your drinks to Grape-kun.
Tatsuki can do whatever he wants in 番外編.
If Kadokawa complains we'll murder them.
I didn't ask for these feels.
Grape-kun proved that 2D is always superior, whether you're man or beast.
He does not seem to be very young… and in the end, no one can say for sure
Where and how he should spend what little time he has left would make him happiest
You should decide with your instincts
–On that day,
A mascot character joined PPP, his charm point a purple band on his left wing
His name– came from the manga Wolf-san draw after catching sight of him and being inspired

He can be turned into a cute girl, just like emperor penguin
The greatest love story ever told.
basically what said
its really hard to try and read japanese while crying
Cry over Grape-Kun
Dumb cousin says "How are you crying over some penguin, yet you wouldn't cry over those people shot in Las Vegas"
BECAUSE I HATE HUMANS, I'D RATHER LIVE AMONG PENGUINS THAN HUMANS THAT EITHER ANNOY, HARM OR BETRAY YOU
IS THAT SO WRONG? I'D RATHER HAVE THE WORLD JUST BE WITH PENGUINS!
Bon voyage, Grape-kun
Buen viaje, Grape-kun
Gute reise, Grape-kun
Boa viagem, Grape-kun
Buon viaggio, Grape-kun
Except Tatsuki is stilled kicked off the franchise and Mine was behind the no males rules.
See you in space, grape-kun
Change the word penguin to walrus and google the movie Tusk
I just wanted to watch a tanoshii Discovery Channel anime, how did it turn out like this
It's not fair
This life isn't fair
All it does is punish the weak and needy for existing with pain and death
Thank you for growing to like Hululu and thanks to Kemono Friends for bringing you together. I didn't think the end would come so soon, and while I am terribly saddened, I hope he can watch Hululu even in heaven. I pray for your soul from the bottom of my heart.
I'm pretty bad at jap but I think that's close enough ish
boston shaker came in yesterday, bought some gin and was gonna make some gin based cocktails to experiment
see the news
Here's to you, Grape-kun.
I can't believe Grape-kun is dead.
He's with his waifu now.
You could easily also say that, while you were following the exploits of an extraordinary zoo animal, you grew attached to the story. If your cousin tries to argue, give them a Charlie Horse and defenestrate them.
Why am I crying? I shouldn't be crying over a penguin. Fucking hell.
Will we ever get good news?
How old was he? What was the cause of death? Please don't say loneliness. ;_;
I will see you in Valhalla.
I never cry when famous people pass away but these put me over the edge. Thank you for translating user.
RIP Grape-kun. I hope he is in that beautiful place just beyond the antarctic horizon with his waifu where we will all go one day. Ah fuck, I'm crying again just writing this.
More than 20 years old, so already very old for a penguin.
20. The lifespan of a humboldt penguin is 20 years.
20 years, nearly 80 human years
He had a hard life but his last year was his happiest
Guys there was a thread a week ago where if your waifu got posted you had to do pushups. If I recall, someone posted Hululu. I think that was the cause of death.
Penguins are violent rapists, user.
Las Vegas was sad as well. It's fucked up that someone would murder a bunch of innocent people like that.
Reminder that Grape-kun got NTR'd.
Grape-kun wouldn't be wasting time posting on Sup Forums when he could just be staring at Hululu.
Thank you so much for your love for Hululu and for enjoying Kemono Friends together with us. I'm filled with sadness because I didn't think you would depart us so soon, but even if you are in heaven I hope you will watch over Hululu. Grape-kun, I wish you happiness in the next world from the bottom of my heart.
I can't believe I'm actually in tears for a simple penguin, I'm in shock right now.
An inspiration and a loyal husbando.
Rest in peace, you will be missed.
I didn't think the end would come so soon
VA says bye
I feel a little better now. I imagine he lived a good life and even found his waifu in the end. We could only be so lucky.
I wouldn't call them innocent but yes they certainly didn't deserve that fate
If even the purity of a waifu-having penguin can't survive this wretched world, what chance do we have?
Rip in peace grape-kun
what did he do to deserve this
Need a sticky with funeral music mods. Please.
Fuck this. Read up this article.
Grape Kun died yesterday on 1430 Tokyo time (8:30AM Pacific yesterday).
The cause of death is under investigation
The twitter chat I'm in posted some source to it, but it's buried in 100s of messages now
Goodnight sweet prince
can't survive this wretched world
He left this world to join her
I'm getting misty eyed here.
that is gentoo faggot
He wad NTR'd.
Speaking of adult swim music:
Despite being NTR'd, despite being basically a grandpa, despite not being even able to swim, he found love once again in his last year of life and he put all his fucking life into the damn cardboard, all his time and attention. Just how it should be, he went down in a fucking BLAZE OF GLORY LIKE A TRUE WARRIOR.
We're talking about Grape, not /g/.
Rest in piece Grape-kun
The cause of death is under investigation
Nigger that's misleading as fuck without context. What do you want this to sound like, a murder case?
He quietly passed around 14:30 on the 12th. Cause of death is currently being investigated.
I should rewatch the Haruhi movie.
I only watched the camrip, but it was still glorious.
Now with now WHY
I want to do right by grape since I know kadokawa won't. Should I donate to my local zoo/aquarium or a larger charity?
I really hope they keep Hululu in the enclosure as a kind of memorial. Maybe do something to better preserve it.
The cause of death is under investigation
You guys think it could be
You meant 8:30PM of the 11th.
They were just there for a music concert. They had families and dreams and their whole lives to live. That shit is sad.
There's gotta be a fucking reason for these shitty things be happening all of a sudden. Tatsuki out, S2 perhaps never and now Grape-kun dies, what the hell!?!?
She shall be buried with Grape
The nips translated my post, well at least we and the japanese are together in mourning, Grape was really the best.
It didn't have to be like this.
Cardboard Grape at the side of Hululu
Same, I hate people too. I'd rather be around penguins or animals for that matter
Thanks for making me cry even harder.
Too soon you fucker.
Just kidding. Thanks for the laugh. I needed it.
This lyric is more recognizable than I thought.
Lived a year past normal life span
Got to live his last year with his waifu
In penguin heaven with his waifu
Not now Carlos
Kadokawa sponsored hit job?
No human over the age of reason is innocent. We all deserve far more suffering and punishment than we get is my point. Be happy for the mercy we're allowed and do something with it.
You shouldn't be crying over either, you big baby.
Download Coalgirls' translation and wait for December 18th. Let's all meet again that one day, as always.
fuck those dumb retards we are here fro grape
Cry not for the life well lived.
Praise God that it was not unlived.
Why did things had to end like this?
I don't like today
grape-kun got cucked?
fucking hell, even cunts of the penguin world are ruthless
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
user please stop.
Get that shit out of here, they weren't slaughtering children in a field. They just wanted to listen to some music. Regardless of what they were doing prior to the event or throughout their entire lives, no one deserves to get brutally killed by some random asshole in a hotel window.
This sounds like a case for Phoenix Wright.
Is Gensokyo close to Japari Park?
And yet thousands of animals die every day to feed your fat asses. No tears for them.
Kadokawa did this somehow, the fucking shits.
Grape-kun left because he'd never see his waifu on-screen as she was meant to by Tatsuki.
Honestly it's because the people in vegas were just a faceless mob to most of us while we came to know, like, and empathize with grape-kun do to him being a cute animal that acted like one of us smelly nerds. It's perfectly reasonable that this would hit you harder.
The cause of death is under investigation
This is Kim Jong Un's revenge for the destruction of his nuclear program!
listening to shitty music
they deserve every bullet
Calm down Satan. We're here for Grape kun, not some random literal whos.
i'm vegan though :^)
Rest in peace, Grape-kun. I really hope that you're with her now, you truly deserve each other.
Cut it out
And Grape-kun ate thousands of fish.
What's your point?
Rest in peace, Grape-kun, a better soul than I
It only served to set him up for greatness. The penguin that learned 2D > 3D.
Yeah but penguins taste like shit.
This one was very special for all of us, for all the KF fans.
That love is now just a memory that will slowly be erased by time.
Not fucking cool man
none of those animals got cucked and found a waifu in the twilight years of their life you nigger
Sup Forums and 2ch sing Kemono Friends ED, and send it to the zoo, when?
photoshop in ghost-like copies of grape-kun and hululu.
I already told you that I agree with that statement but to say they were innocent of any wrongdoing and completely ill-deserving of any sufferin is wrong. Don't paint with such a broad brush and pretend that humans aren't horrifically flawed creatures down to our very core being.
could this be the work of
and now his watch is ended
Grape-kun wouldn't want us to mourn him.
Now he's finally at peace.
He is free from his prison.
He is free from his life of hardships.
He can watch Hululu perform live and sing along with her.
That means that Hululu is free for anyone
Rest in peace you magnificent bastard
You guys think it's odd that Grape-Kun "died" out of nowhere
What if he was killed? I want answers
What is dead may never die.
This would be great but I don't know if we could get 2ch together to do it, especially with us Sup Forums. We could try, though.
the people in vegas were just a faceless mob to most of us
If anyone really feels that way then you should watch videos of the attack. People panicking, crying in pain and trying to save each other is pretty heart breaking.
I'll never gonna see penguins the same way thanks to Grape-kun.
Grape-kun already old as fug
could die at any minute
meets his waifu Hululu
his love for her and the positive energy from the KF fans keeps him alive
Kadokawa destroys the positive energy from the fans with the negative energy from their corporate greed
Grape-kun dies days later
Top 10 Anime Deaths
EVEN GRAPE-KUN CAN'T GET OVER THE CHANGE DIRECTORS OH THE HORROR
get it in your thick skull, no one cares.
Humans get attached to very specific type of animals, the most ''human'' their actions are the most emotinally attached the humans get attached to them in general. We got attached to dogs due to their loyalty, we got attached to cats due to their behavior towards us despite being grumpy, heck, even to Dolphins our race is attached to. My point is theres also a fuck ton of other animals we don't feel connection at all, like cows for example, we just see cows as found as thats it. You only feel bad when you feel something that is emotinally important is injured/lost or whatever. No, theres no perfect utopia where the human race will love every single fucking animal, that will never happen.
And only autists care about a penguin.
years from now, this picture would get posted in "feels thread"
"I don't get it, what's with the rock?"
I'll tell you this again. We're here for Grape-kun, not some random nobodies. Cut it out.
RIP, he was too pure for this world.
He was 20 years old, user. The maximum expected lifespan of his species is 20 years. He was an old man who died of old age.
this isn't fucking fair
HE WAS ONE OF US
Speak for yourself, not all of us, fag.
The mass of people is simply just faceless while the penguin has a relatable to you story know story and the name.
Goodbye you pure old soul. ;_;7
yeah, now go cry over your obese disgusting humans to somewhere else.
we finally meet
There it is, that finally broke me
it's okay to cry Sup Forums
it just means you're still human
And in the end,
The love you take is equal to the love you make
Those are filthy normie animals. Grape-kun was truly one of us.
You gotta be a real edgy faggot to come into a thread like this and say shit like
Celibacy is the only way for a love this pure.
To be honest I have never eat penguins, are they delicious?
Most of the human race then, it doesn't matter if you're part of the minority that does. At the end of the day the majority is what dictates cultural attachment and more stuff. Don't try to sound like a special snowflake in a higher moral standpoint. fuck off
Rest in peace, grape-kun. You showed us that 2D solidarity transcends countries and species. We're all in this together. Thank you.
This reached the news
They taste like really thick chicken.
Stop shitting up the thread. It'ssad enough as is.
I'm actually fucking depressed over a penguin
I'm pretty sure the ones who have no empathy for people are the ones who are edgy.
Press F to pay respects.
Rest in peace you magnificent penguin.
Yes. Grape-kun in particular tasted great.
HUMANS THAT EITHER ANNOY, HARM OR BETRAY YOU
Uhh, dude, we like Grape-kun precisely BECAUSE he was harmed and betrayed by his 3d wife/mate. He previously had a mate that left him for a younger, stronger male penguin.
Lo and behold, Uncle Grape totters around for a couple years until they put the Hululu cutout in the penguin pen and he suddenly discovered 2D love and perfection.
They taste like “a piece of beef, odiferous cod fish and a canvas-backed duck roasted together in a pot, with blood and cod-liver oil for sauce”
~Frederick Cook, American surgeon, 1897
Godspeed you wonderful birdweeb
yeah but they don't have 2d waifus
But what if they thought "You know...Grape-kun is getting too much attention and this Kemono friend thing is getting old", so the zoo keepers spoke with the other penguins and they thought "We hate Grape-Kun, ever since he fell in love with that stupid cutout, all the humans give HIM the love and not US".
So the zoo people and penguins made a deal with getting rid of Grape-Kun. Either the penguins jumped and pecked him to the death or he was poisoned, either by the zoo keeper or other penguins.
I want to see his body, how do we know he wasn't killed by the other penguins?
Thanks for that deep perspective, Shadow. Really makes you think.
I fucking hate that I'm actually a little teary.
Get over it and get off your high horse.
Me either. Guess today's as good as any other.
I'll be thinking of you, Ojii-san
Every single one of us feels the same way right now.
Humans can only live by ascribing meaning to otherwise meaningless things.
/a/ goes full /pol/
Stop ruining the moment you edgy misanthrope, I think your cousin is right. Sort your self out, clean your room
We lost something special today.
Rest easy old friend.
He's on 2D heaven now
Not full /pol/ until they claim Clintons killed Grape-kun
/pol was mourning him to, then the thread got deleted
RIP Grape-kun, you're an angel friend now.
shouldn't this be yuri
You know what, you bring up a great point
I envy you user, I've been crying to my heart's content like I hadn't done in a long, long time.
whats the afterlife like, anons?
Please don't say loneliness
Dont worry user, Hululu was with him until the end
Is it too late to request an edit of the girl from Anne Happy who loves the traffic cut-out?
your waifu in your arms
cia niggers killed grape
When one dies, it's a tragedy.
When hundreds die, it's statistics.
Grape-kun gets an exception.
Acoording to Frederick Cook, they taste like “a piece of beef, odiferous cod fish and a canvas-backed duck roasted together in a pot, with blood and cod-liver oil for sauce”
Rest well, Grape-kun. May you forever swim with your waifu.
“I have often had the impression that, to penguins, man is just another penguin -different, less predictable, occasionally violent, but tolerable company when he sits still and minds his own business.”
― Bernard Stonehouse
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...
THOSE GLOW IN THE DARK FUCKERS
It is odd that he just died out of the blue, maybe the penguins got jealous and killed him.
They still haven't said how he died
That's /x/ you silly shit. He's talking about a fucking hit squad of fucking disgruntled penguins hired by an anime company.
How is this not a sticky? This is the saddest news of the year. We literally lost the first and only otaku bird in the world
They just dont know love. Don't reply just pity them.
Surrounded by all your Friends with all the Japari buns you can eat.
Don't worry, he's already with her angel.
when weebs, neet /v/irgins, a mishmash of every political ideology, an animals board, and a touhou board all mourn the loss of the one being who can truly be called /ourguy/
Kadokawa fucks up
National News blows them the fuck out
Grape-kun passes away
So popular that he's the star of the news
Kemono Friends; proving that even the simplest things can evoke incredible emotions.
wanting a sticky
Then the thread would truly go to shit
Stickies ruin things
I wonder if penguins can fly in heaven.
i wonder who killed grape-kun
Well, it's not like they're doing anything else.
Hilldawg was probably pissed that Grape got more attention than her Costco Book signing
I can't believe Kadokawa fucking murdered a penguin. Where will they stop?
Grape-kun earned his place by Hululu's side, even if he is a boy.
Maybe the true meaning of 1488 was the friends we made along the way
What, that penguin is a virgin nerd who likes anime girl? He must be a Trump supporter!
Guys, I think Grape-Kun was murdered
They weren't any worse than the average fucking person you fucking autistic piece of shit. If all humans are shitty niggers then they weren't any shittier than you or me.
Jesus fucking christ you have to either be baiting or actually fucking crazy. Kill yourself, thanks.
By Kadokawa? Yes.
Grape-kun was fucking 20 almost 21.
Penguins only live to 20.
There are no Minority Friends
Maybe the true meaning of 1488 was the friends we made along the way
Maybe...Grape-kun did this for us, and all Friends.
His death, perhaps his sacrifice, came at a good time. The scandal with Kadokawa and Kemono Friends had hit a relative standstill.
His death blowing up worldwide and fucking trending brings up Kemono Friends and those who loved it back into the spotlight, and thus Kadokawa.
This could be their fucking comeuppance for what they are doing to Kemono Friends.
GRAPE-KUN DIED FOR US
KADOKAWA'S SINS WILL BE KNOWN
Farewell, true Kemono Friends fan. Enjoy Japari Park.
I've been crying here close to an hour now.
I didn't even watch Kemono Friends.
But I knew Grape.
I asked mods on feedback
Go watch it you numbnuts
WHERE DO YOU THINK WE ARE?
Use the IRC. You're more likely to get an answer.
Do it for him
You went too far this time, Kadokawa.
Meanwhile, Grape's old gf is getting plowed by Chad
that proves you are a human user
and probably not a nigger or kike either since they majorly lack empathy necessary
They'll both go to hell.
Grape is in heaven with his waifu.
OH GOD, ITS JUST LIKE REAL LIFE
It doesn't matter. Grape found true love in his life in the end.
He is in heaven Japari park with his waifu. He is a winner here
And neither of them will know true happiness
Give a chance to KF, it worth it. No anime made me feel like this, ever.
I think I'm finally done
rest in peace, little guy. until we meet again...
Rest in peace, Grape-san.
Blue board, faggot
I'll do it. But I must sleep. It's 5:30 am.
If I meet Grape in my lucid dreams, I'll bid him farewell from all of us.
Grape-kun lived a long life. He died by the side of his beloved. And he's just a penguin.
I shouldn't be this sad.
It matters not that you haven't seen the show. We are all moved by the passing of one of us, one who loved his waifu and was watched over by her until the end. We could only be so fortunate to go the way he did.
Now /an/ is mourning
They weren't any worse than the average...person
I agree but that's a very low bar
But in the end the world mourns for Grape and will never give a shit about those others.
No shit, it's the animal board. It's on topic.
Can't just keep Hululu waiting, user. Grape was just visiting here. His home is with her.
Even I am cry </3
Grape got NTR'd by a penguin called Denki(Electricity)
His Wife literally got fucked by Chad Thundercock
I'm crying over a penguin. Amazing.
fuck you fag dont make me laugh now
So if a person you admired died you wouldn't feel anything at all, since thousands of people die every day so he would be just one of those.
That tryhard way of thinking only makes you look like an idiot, you know.
It's been a while since I got to have an emotional moment with all of Sup Forums.
implying it wasn't Daiz
I'm convinced Grape-kun will share the fame of Hachiko the dog
They might add a bronze statue of him or something
Who knows, he was good for the zoo's business
I'll tell you soon.
implying Daiz doesn't work for Kadokawa
Rest in pepperoni our brother from another species. You were too good for this world.
Shit, this whole thing reminds me the day of Tatsuki's tweet. The same feelings all over again.
That would actually be a nice gesture.
Have any zoologists that actually know about penguin behavior commented on the whole Grape-kun thing? Is he actually showing signs of being in love or is he just fixated on the cutout because of the colors and we're misinterpreting his attraction to it?
I haven't been this saddened by an internet death since Spock died.
Does it matter?
He was literally courting it.
Birds have very good color vision so he's not confusing it for anything else.
He likely thought it was a mate, a zookeeper, or possibly just someone else who was old like him.
R.I.P. you crazy tuxedo bird you
They said that Grape has been spotted performing courting behavior toward the cutout
Oh god, the feelings, I feel really depressed but glad because they are finally together.
not an expert, but he was 100% in love
fixated on it since the day the cutout arrived
did shit that penguins do for courting
when the cutout was removed he fell into an extreme suicidal depression, refusing to eat or even move
returned to a happy demeanor when it was back
he was a bird dedicated to his bird waifu, there is nothing to misinterpret
He would get depressed and refuse to eat when they took her away after the promotion. So they brought it back for him, of course he had an attraction to it
The time to take off is now
Indeed it is.
He made courting gestures
My guess is that his eyesight was really really bad, he was old
Maybe she had the right shape for him or something
now morning comes
but I'm broken-hearted 'til we meet again
at the end of the earth
God damn i was already sad enough, and i love doggod
Rest in peace, friend. I hope you continue to find happiness in Heaven, with Hululu.
well. there goes the Kadokawa plan to stall out until everything blew over.
grape-kun's passing is unexpected and depressing, but i doubt it'll be in vain if people keep meming this into the public sphere
Hey! Don't lumps us Touhou fag with that edgelord.
Literally one of us. Goddamn. Godspeed, dear birb.
RIP in peace Grape-kun. Very few things loved as greatly as he did and I hope one day I can love as greatly as he did.
You really had never heard of Hachiko?
He's already in Japari Park.
Grape-hun proved to us... these things we feel are natural.
Now we have a Mexican Hachiko coming to where his master died on last earthquake, my grandfather Xolo escaped 4 times and those 4 times we found him in the graveyard standing next to my grandfather burial.
Never doubt doggo love.
Nope, cant belive i didnt before
See you, space penguin.
Yeah, and he's searching for Hululu right now.
Animals aren't really better than us, user. Especially ones that form colonies. Don't get fooled into believing that by one pure in spirit, exalted Grape-kun, one of us.
It's Friday the 13th in Japan.
Tweet from Yuka, Serval's VA.
600 replies in and I see no one says "nothing of value was lost", even as a cheeky joke. I knew it, you guys are good people, and I respect every one of you.
Now I need a drink
may I suggest a different one? ;__;
second season is Grape-kun's adventures in Japari Park
Sup Forums maybe full of faggots, but anons will always be there for one of our own.
We lost something that's utterly irreplaceable.
Those people have their family to mourn them. Grape-kun is our family
There were a bunch of edgy cunts, you just missed them. Or maybe your brain skipped them, I dunno.
We're very nice people as long as no shitposter shows up.
There was some baiting earlier but they probably got tired of it
Season 2 should be about grape-kuns adventures in Japari Park, searching for Hululu.
I cried for the first time in years
I wonder if PPP's VAs will have a tribute concert for him later
tfw Tatsuki probably would have animated it himself if not for the blue chicken
He was one of us.
Goodnight Grape kun.
I know penguins are flightless so I hope you enjoy flying up to heaven.
What a cruel truth
Will miss ya Grape-kun!
He's eating Japari buns with Hululu right now.
It's okay. Anonymous never dies, and neither will its memories.
Every moment will be remembered by the Archive, and Grape's love is no exception.
4 days ago
How many of us have already died?
Let's hope you're right...
On the inside, every single one.
That's pure love and dedication.
I feel awful now
Thats not the question we should be asking, but how many of us lived.
tfw I was one of the shitposters
I really enjoyed mocking you faggots
Over time gained a liking for this old somewhat goofy penguin
His dedication seemed real and geniune
Grape doesn't need to be remembered. He has all he needs now.
Tatsuki makes a video
PPP visit the library along with Margay, wanting to see the old PPP members
The girls all chat and have a good time, Margay arguing who is best
Hululu looks over to a picture of the old Hululu
Cut to Emperor and Margay, the former of which says "Ah! Hululu, what's wrong?"
Similar to "that" scene with Serval in the hotel, Hululu has a confused expression as well as tears
Cut to a flashback of sorts, with a penguin in a zoo looking at a picture of Hululu
Lots of background humans walking about, taking photos and such
Caretakers talking about the penguin, voiced by actual attendants from the real zoo
Talks about keeping the image, the penguin's health, and his happiness
Back to current Hululu, who wipes her tears, and says she's just happy to see the past.
Everyone brushes it off as Hululu being Hululu, and the day ends
Hululu looks up as she walks with everyone else
"In memory of Grape-kun" 2017 in the setting sun
Here's to hoping Grape-kun is sandstar'd and attending his waifu's concerts in Japari heaven.
Grape-kun was the mascot of Kemono Friends, now has become the symbol of the resistance. If the jerks of KDKW didn't know about his existence, they will.
It's just a fucking penguin, you dumb faggots.
I havent seen Kemeno friends and it's fucking time to change that. Who's subs/bd rips do I watch?
a real penguin becomes a martyr for a transnational otaku crusade against Kadokawa
A year ago I would have laughed at this premise, it sounds so crazy
Yes he was edglord-kun, but he loved his waifu like a real man should
Commie and FFF had pretty good subs.
Never forget how an old zoo animal touched the hearts of countless people across the world.
Every moment will be remembered by the Archive
But will it really? Hard drives fail and databases get lost. Chanarchive is no more and most current archives only go back several years (Desu being the oldest at 2008)
How many anons really remember the old times, 2003-2007? All that remains from that era are screenshots here and there.
The true experience only remains within our memories.
It was an unpleasant day today anons. Stay safe.
It's okay user, you can drop the tsun just this time. Let your tears out.
He's in penguin heaven with his love along, be happy for Grape-kun. Don't be sad by the loss too long anons, pls rember happy day.
He was truly in love. That's more than you can say about many of our conspecifics.
He's more like us than any Normalfag
We're crying for ourselves, who we see in him only better
i made a tribute of this thread to honor him with:
The true experience only remains within our memories
Many years from now, you and I may pass each other on the street, old men who shared countless beautiful moments both happy and sad
And we will never know
It's a bird so dumb it would eat its own young
Stop projecting human emotions on an animal that literally stands still and starves 3 months of the year
That's a cute lady picture.
upboated and subscribed
You ruined it with the two faggots talking at first
"My bro is dead. He's gone! But he's right there on my back, and here in my heart! He lives on as a part of me! If you're gonna NOOT, NOOT to the heavens. No matter what's in my way, I won't stop! Once I've NOOTED - it means that I've won! ... Just who the hell do you think I am? I'm Pingu. I'm not my Bro! I'M ME!! Pingu the Pnguin!"
Fuck you Kadokawa. First Kemono Friends and now Grape-kun.
including those literally who's
Other than that, it's good.
i wanted to give some context to who grape was, they are total fags
The one Sup Forums thread this year that actually needs a sticky and it's about to die.
not going full /x/ and looking for the akashic shitposts
Like Grape-kun, it will live on in our hearts.
We love you too Pingu...
Sticky ruins everything, there will be edgelords galore coming in to say "nothing of value was lost" and so forth
Remake the video without them
F Grapekun, we loved you and you will live on in our hearts
Nah. Just leave them.
It's unlisted anyway.
I know this is late but you reminded me this existed
Time to reread it
It's such a good manga. Shame none of his other stuff is in English, despite him being fluent.
