Gudetama’s Official YouTube Channel Now Has English Subtitles

03.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME

The official YouTube channel for the popular character Gudetama is now posting its videos with English, Traditional Chinese and Korean subtitles.

Gudetama is a lazy egg character that was created by Sanrio in 2013. His debut saw him reach No. 2 on Tabekyara Sousenkyo, a competition that had people voting for their favourite food-inspired character. His lethargic, no-energy demeanour has earned him international popularity. The decision to include subtitles in various languages serves to further expand his sluggish influence.

Videos posted on this channel include an archive of short animations that have and are shown on Japanese television as well as new videos made specifically for the YouTube channel. Sanrio plan to add more languages in the future.

The channel is also accepting translations from viewers using YouTube’s subtitle function. These translations will be reviewed and judged before consideration to post them on the channel is made.
