Cheeky, punky yet cute: that’s Kuromi! She’s been around for years yet we still know little about her besides the fact that she’s a character from Sanrio, the same company famous for Hello Kitty. If you’re curious about Kuromi then keep reading!

Kuromi is often seen together with Sanrio character My Melody but did you know that the two are actually rivals? My Melody made her debut in 1975 when she appeared as Hello Kitty’s best friend in the tv series The Adventures of Hello Kitty and Friends but Kuromi made her debut a lot later in 2005 in the tv series Onegai My Melody.

The story:

“Kuromi, an escaped prisoner from Mari Land, has the Melody Key, an artifact with dream-corrupting powers, and she and her partner Baku have plans to gather 100 black notes to revive the Spirit of Dark Power. What for? To get back at her rival, My Melody, for the turmoil My Melody caused her (by accident, to be clear). When Kuromi ventures into the human world, she meets, teams up with, and even falls madly in love with Keiichi Hiiragi, a popular high school boy in Yumegaoka.

My Melody, with the Melody Takt, Melody Candies, and Melody Box in hand, ventures into the human world herself to gather 100 pink notes to stop Kuromi’s disastrous plans. There, My Melody meets Uta Yumeno and her friends and they become partners in the quest to stop Kuromi’s plans and save both the human world and Mari Land.” source

Let us know what you think of Kuromi! Who is your favorite Sanrio character? Personally I like her a lot because she isn’t overly sweet or innocent like Hello Kitty or My Melody and let’s be real: no one is! Sanrio characters like Kuromi but also the lazy Gudetama and angry Aggretsuko have gained more popularity the past years because people can relate to them.
