anime and manga terminology that describes characters that possess animal like features. The characters will be predominately human and any real animal characteristics are minimal, unlike kemono characters who possess a large percentage of animal parts in ratio with their human parts. Generally, kemonomimi characters have ears and a tail which are animal-like. Often this is just part of their attire and can be removed at will.
Some specific types of kemono are common enough to be known by their own terms:
