Crayon Shin-chan Humidifier – What’s That Coming Out His Butt?
07.September.2018 | ANIME&GAME
The ‘Godzilla Humidifier’ was selected for the Product Licensee Award in the 2018 Japan Character Awards.
Now an amusing new entry to the line has been created. The Crayon Shin-chan humidifier will be released at the beginning of December this year.
The Godzilla humidifier was born from the idea that it would be interesting if the humidifying mist sprayed blue like Godzilla’s atomic breath. The product was a huge hit with Godzilla fans who praised it for not simply using Godzilla as the humidifier’s model, but tying the character’s traits to it.
The success of the product has led to this second instalment. Like the Godzilla model, the Crayon Shin-chan humidifier takes on the traits of Shin-chan himself.
We him being cheeky and sticking out his butt. But that’s not all – the humidifier mist actually comes out of his butt. Butts more often than not don’t smell very pleasant, but that’s not the case for Shin-chan as the humidifier can be used with an aroma oil of your choice.
It can be used in place of an ordinary humidifier. It has a 4-hour continuous mode and an 8-hour intermittent mode. It’s also USB chargeable meaning you can make your work environment smell nice as it charges from your PC or laptop.
The humidifier also features recordings of Shin-chan voiced by Yumiko Kobayashi, the second voice of the character. There are three lines that will be played randomly whenever you switch it on and off.
Make your room smell nice with the aromas of Shin-chan’s butt.

Aimyon to Perform Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane ~The Lost Hiroshi~ Main Theme
It has been announced that singer-songwriter Aimyon will perform the main theme song for the anime film Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane ~The Lost Hiroshi~ which is set to release on April 19, 2019.
Aimyon is a huge fan of Cragon Shin-chan. The song she has written for the latest film is titled Haru no Hi (“Spring Day”). It focuses on the love between Shin-chan’s parents Hiroshi and Misae Nohara from their perspective and their honeymoon trip which they have never been on and which the film is based on.
The song will also be used as the new ending theme song for the Crayon Shin-chan anime series from February 8. Aimyon’s 7th single to date, the CD will hit shelves on April 17, two days before the film’s premiere.
Aimyon gave the following comments about the collaboration: “I have been given the opportunity to perform the main theme for Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane ~The Lost Hiroshi~. I have loved the series since I was a child. I am so grateful to be able to say that. But at the same time I wondered to myself how I would be able to convey those loving memories, in my own way, in a song. When I heard that it was about ‘family love’ I thought I would write a song about the birth of the Nohara household. Crayon Shin-chan always taught me about the strength of family ties and happiness. Of course, that includes his bonds with everyone in the Kasukabe Defence Force too. There are of course times he stumbles too. The message the series gets across touches my heart. I am truly happy to be involved with this movie. Thank you for this lifetime treasure. I hope that the song Haru no Hi that I wrote reaches many places.”
She continues: “This is a different film, but I watched [Crayon Shin-chan: Fierceness That Invites Storm!] The Adult Empire Strikes Back from 2001. That’s where I first saw the Tower of the Sun by Tarō Okamoto. Crayon Shin-chan also introduced me to Takuro Yoshida, Betsy & Chris and others. It might not be the same, but I would be happy if I’m able to return the favour even a little.”
Shin-chan also made a comment himself: “Cheers for making such a wonderful song for us. It makes me feel relaxed all the way to the centre of my butt. It was a really good song! Ahh, I want Aimyon to propose to me… Be sure you all listen to it!”
*Comments translated from Japanese.
