Sanrio Character Ranking 2021 to Announce Winner in Collaboration With Tokyo Girls Collection
Sanrio has announced that the announcement ceremony for the winner of the 2021 Sanrio Character Ranking will take place in collaboration with Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC), a semi-annual fashion festival in Tokyo, on June 8. The event will be streamed live on Hello Kitty and TCG’s respective LINE accounts, as well as Sanrio’s official YouTube account, so that more people can tune in to this year’s announcement and see which of Sanrio’s characters will take the crown.
80 characters are participating in this year’s Sanrio Character Ranking which will be announced in order from 80 to 1. This year also sees the return of the sub-award categories including Collaboration. Hosting the event as MC is tarento and actress Nao Asahi and the Japanese comedy duo Wagyu ga Tsutome.
But the winner announcement is not the only event scheduled for 2021’s ranking. Since this time is a collaboration with TGC, there will be a fashion runway where popular models will show off their looks, a live performance with JO1 and the Sanrio characters, a rap battle, and more.
Fashion Runway: Famous models display the Sanrio character aesthetic
On the fashion stage, a line-up of well-known Japanese models will serve fashion inspired by Sanrio’s most famous characters including My Melody, Kuromi, Little Twin Stars, and Pompompurin.
Marie Iitoyo and Maika Yamamoto will use a real-time composite photography system as they dress up as the adorable My Melody and her rival Kuromi. Serving the dreamy star-filled world of Kiki and Lala are Kaane and Sakura Saiga, Yoshiaki & Michi, and Rikariko. For the Pompompurin section, which is themed on the golden retriever’s daily life, we have Nana Kato, Ami Komuro, Natsuki Deguchi, Sachi Fujii, and Roy. But that’s not all as Sakachin, Yuki Higashihara, and Reina, who won the LINE LIVE auditions to appear on this year’s fashion runway, will also appear.
A heated rap battle between the Sanrio characters
In the rap battle, KIRIMI-chan, Kuromi, Kogimyun, and Pompompurin will go head to head against special guests Tsukasa Saito of comedy duo Trendy Angel and Yuriyan Retriever.
The Sanrio cast join music artists for a concert
The adorable Cinnamoroll, who is also expanding his work as an idol, will perform alongside JO1, while Hello Kitty will sing with singer-songwriter Sonoko Inoue.
A new virtual experience using the latest technology
Japanese digital advertising company CyberAgent, who produced virtual events and 3DCG content, will be using the latest in 3DCG and XR tech to blur the lines between reality and the virtual space with an interactive experience, such as people’s comments on social media and the video displaying in real time, and more.

Sanrio 60th Anniversary Event Reveals Collaboration Cafe Menu
One of the most popular franchises to come out of Japan is celebrating a massive milestone! The Sanrio Exhibition: 60 Years of Kawaii Culture in Japan will be held on the 52nd floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower starting September 17. The event will feature over 800 unique character products, the largest number in Sanrio history, and will allow guests to experience the charm and wonder of one of the most well-known parts of Japan’s ‘kawaii’ culture.
Special light effects have been added to the ‘Godfather of Kawaii’ Masuda Sebastian’s unique entrance art, titled “Unforgettable Tower.” Singer and actor Aoi Shouta acts as the audio guide for the exhibition.
Comment from Aoi Shouta / Audio Guide
“I’m excited to experience the history of Sanrio together with you as the audio guide for the exhibition. I’m also incredibly honored to be a part of this project, since I’ve been a fan of Sanrio for as long as I can remember. Please enjoy this time with your favorite characters!”
Comment from Sebastian Masuda / Designer of the “Unforgettable Tower”
“Sanrio characters and goods exist in a far corner of everyone’s memories. For a long time, this was specifically a Japanese feeling. Now, it’s true of people all over the world. Memory is an odd thing. It can be fuzzy, and difficult to capture. However, sometimes the nostalgia and feelings remain, and I’ve captured this strange balance in the ‘Unforgettable Tower.’ The Sanrio exhibition is a journey to undertake along with your own memories. I invite you to let your thoughts wander as you gaze at this work of art, and pass through the entrance gate of the exhibition.”

Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Two-Layer Mizu Yokan
With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With just a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.
Today, I’ll teach you how to make two-layer Mizu Yokan, perfect for a hot summer day!
You don’t even need an oven to make this sweet treat–just let it chill and harden! It’s great as a summer vacation snack.
This recipe makes 2 cups.
For Mizu Yokan:
120g fine-grained sweet bean paste
Pinch of salt
1-2g Kanten powder
For Matcha Flavoring:
1-2g Kanten powder
Place bean paste, water, salt, and Kanten powder into a pot and boil until dissolved.
⚠The Kanten powder needs to be heated for a further 1-2 minutes after boiling to harden properly. After boiling, reduce heat to low.
Pour mixture into container.
After about 30 minutes at room temperature, the mixture will start to harden. Work on the matcha flavoring when it begins to harden.
Place matcha, water, sugar, and Kanten powder in a pot and boil thoroughly.
As you did with the Mizu Yokan, reduce heat to low and continue cooking through.
When the mixture is heated through, gently pour it over the Mizu Yokan and refrigerate until ready to serve.
This is delicious with a variety of toppings, from red bean paste and fresh cream to Shiratama dumplings and fresh fruit!

Sanrio Set to Debut the Cutest Musical in the World, From Hello Kitty
08.August.2021 | ANIME&GAME
Are you ready to see the cutest show on Earth? Starting August 24, the From Hello Kitty musical will bring a collection of the most popular Sanrio characters to the IHI Stage Around Tokyo to perform a musical like no other. From Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel and Cinnamoroll to Pom Pom Pudding, My Melody and Little Twin Stars, it’s a full roster of adorable talent! Did we mention that the theater rotates 360 degrees?
Created to celebrate 60 years of Sanrio, the musical’s message is simple and wholesome: let’s bring the world together and all get along. The show will give the audience an insight into the character’s thoughts and histories like never before, and will feature a special version of the popular Sanrio Puroland Miracle Gift Parade, with a new story that can only be seen in this performance.
Sebastian Masuda will serve as the production’s art director, and will no doubt bring a unique brand of cuteness to the stage performance. Music producer Hyadain will be bringing plenty of pop and dance numbers, and anime fans may recognize his works: he provided tracks for shows like Nichijou and Bakuman!
The production will be directed by Yukio Ueshima, known for his work on The Prince of Tennis musicals, based on the incredibly popular sports manga of the same name. He has also worked on over 200 other stage shows, including a number of Japanese Broadway adaptations.
The IHI Stage Around Tokyo is the only theater in Asia capable of rotating 360 degrees. The circular auditorium can seat over 1,300 spectators, and is surrounded by a stage and massive screen, providing a one-of-a-kind experience that can’t be found anywhere else. For those ultra-Sanrio fans, a limited number of meet and greet events will be taking place daily, giving you the chance to take pictures with your favorite characters!
We could all use some cheering up after the events of the past year. If you can make it, be sure to check out the loveable stage performance on Earth before it closes on September 26, 2021!
