About Rilakkuma

Image: San-X Net

First launched in 2003 by San-X, the brown bear was a huge hit, and as of May 2010 ranked as the fifth most popular character in Japan. Apart from being a loveable soft-toy, Rilakkuma has also appeared in picture books.

His origin is a mysterious, as he’s said to have appeared in the office lady Kaoru’s apartment one day, out of nowhere.

On his back is a zipper that opens to reveal a light blue polka dot patterned material. The reason why he has a zipper in the first place is, however, unknown.

Netflix

And it seems that the popular brown bear is gonna become an even hotter sensation in the future.

On 21 May 2018, streaming giant Netflix released a trailer titled Rilakkuma and Kaoru Season 1 on its Youtube channel.

To date, the trailer has collected over 200,000 views.

The stop-motion series will adhere to the brown bear’s origin story, and explore his adventures alongside Kaoru, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori. It’s slated to premiere in 2019.

Character themes

I might not be a wise man, but even I know one thing:

Cartoon characters, especially ones from Japan, get insanely hot in Singapore.

I mean; just look at the whole McDonalds-HelloKitty partnership. Every time the clown releases new Hello Kitty toys, the country seems to go into a frenzy, with people happy to purchase over 10 Happy Meals just for the toys.

And considering how the Hello Kitty toys don’t exactly increase your appeal or make you a millionaire, I’ve no idea why they would be so attractive in the first place.

But then again, the world does work in mysterious ways.

Anyway, I can see this whole Rilakkuma thing achieving the same effect, seeing how the brown bear hails from Japan…

And Singaporeans seem to go gaga over anything overseas.

Speaks volumes about our country, doesn’t it? 😉
