Kuromi Announces Special L.A. Appearance

Sanrio, the Japanese entertainment company established in 1960, has captivated audiences with its delightful array of characters. While Hello Kitty, the albino kitten, remains the most renowned creation, Sanrio has birthed numerous other beloved characters. As Anime Expo 2023 approaches in Los Angeles, California later this week, one of Sanrio's most popular characters will be roaming the convention floor, offering con-goers a chance to encounter them.

For those unfamiliar with the enigmatic white rabbit, Kuromi first emerged in the 2005 anime series Onegai My Melody. Despite her cute appearance, Kuromi is the leader of a biker gang aptly named "Kuromi's 5". Recently, Sanrio granted this edgy mascot her own series, titled Kuromi's Pretty Journey, which now features an English Dub on Sanrio's Official YouTube Channel. The series description reads, "Kuromi receives a photo depicting her missing sister, Romina. Filled with desperation to reunite with her sibling, Kuromi embarks on a quest to find Romina."

Kuromi's Anime Expo Appearance

Kuromi's presence at Anime Expo on July 1st is highly anticipated, although her exact location within the convention remains undisclosed. To generate excitement for the upcoming appearance of the Sanrio mascot in Los Angeles, the convention has launched the hashtag "WhereIsKuromi," urging fans to embark on a quest to locate the beloved character on the convention floor. Whether the Expo will unveil any announcements related to this Sanrio favorite is yet to be revealed.

In addition to the well-known characters like Hello Kitty and Kuromi, Sanrio recently garnered attention with the conclusion of the beloved Netflix series, Aggretsuko. Despite the fifth season serving as its finale, the story of Retsuko showcased Sanrio's versatility by portraying the journey of an office worker striving to find her way in life. While Hello Kitty holds the title of one of the most globally popular characters, it remains intriguing to contemplate whether any other Sanrio character could surpass the mascot's immense popularity.
