Sumikko Gurashi: The Characters!
Sumikko Gurashi is a set of fictional characters that are very popular in Japan. Japanese company San-X first released these characters in September 2012. ‘Sumikko Gurashi’ roughly means “life in the corner”.
There are main characters. “Shirokuma” is a polar bear, and quite ironically, it dislikes the cold! The second one is “Penguin?” No, it’s not a typo! There is a question mark in the name itself as it is unsure of being a penguin.
Additionally, “Tonkatsu” is a piece of leftover pork cutlet and “Neko” is a timid and anxious cat. Lastly, there is a dinosaur who pretends to be a lizard, “Tokage”.
Minor Minniko characters include “Furoshiki”, a polka dot furoshiki cloth. It also includes a weed with a positive attitude, “Zassou”. Additionally, there is a multi-colored leftover tapioca pearl, “Tapioca”.
Yuri Yokomizo originally designed all the characters. She worked at San-X as a graphic designer. She was inspired by the feeling of comfort anyone has when they are near a corner.
