It’s not just Hello Kitty: Japan’s character craze
mysanantonio.com / Sun, 31 Aug 2014 05:49:42 UT
In what is seen as the origin of Japanese manga, or comics, a set of 12th-century scroll paintings humorously portray frogs, rabbits and other animals in human activities, from sumo wrestling to temple worshipping. [...] to expressive American characters such as Mickey Mouse and Garfield, Hello Kitty doesn't show emotions, and the simplicity has attracted fans from children to street fashion devotees. Despite her cat-like ears and whiskers, she is a "cheerful girl with a gentle heart," says the official website of her theme park, Sanrio Puroland. In a bright yellow, stretchy bodysuit, the pear-fairy jumps up and down frantically and talks in a rapid-fire, high-pitched voice, shouting "nashi!" (pear) at the end of each sentence. The "relaxing bear" is usually seen lounging on a yellow bean bag, sometimes nibbling on snacks, demonstrating an ultimate stress-free lifestyle. The roommate of a 25-year-old female office worker, Rilakkuma's gentle words such as "sleep and reset" and "let's worry when that happens" have been compiled in a series of popular books, serving as remedies for stressed-out Japan. A chubby yellow mutant rodent, Pikachu is the most popular of more than 400 monsters in the Nintendo video game series Pokemon. The series started in 1996 as a pair of game titles for hand-held player Game Boy, and has evolved into playing cards, animation, video games and movies. Pikachu makes frequent public appearances in Japan, especially during summer school break. Besides the theme cafe in Tokyo's fashionable Roppongi Hills shopping complex, hundreds of Pikachus swarmed into Yokohama in mid-August in a "Pikachu outbreak" event.
