2020 Sanrio Character Ranking: Cinnamonroll Takes 1st Place For Third Year
10.June.2020 | FASHION
The final results have been announced for the 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking. This year marks the 35th run of the event.
The theme of this year’s ranking centred on fans cheering for characters who they have always loved and who have always been by their sides through the years. It was a chance to let the character you love know that you are cheering them on.
Voting opened on April 10, which was subsequently followed by a first and second round-up of votes. Though votes were made difficult at Sanrio shops, and events couldn’t be held as a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), online voting has amassed the largest number of votes to date: 14,556,939.
In 1st place this year is Cinnamoroll, who was already first place during the second vote round-up, and who placed 2nd in last year’s ranking. Pompompurin takes 2nd place for 2020, up from 3rd place last year, while Pochacco has taken the 3rd place spot—two spots above his last ranking at 5th place.
Speaking about his win, Cinnamoroll commented on the official website, “Thanks so much for cheering me on!” Pompompurin said, “Yay! Thanks for all the love,” and Pochacco said, “Wow! Wow! Wow! I’m so grateful for all the love!”
A special “Tanita Award” was also given to yoshikitty, and to celebrate, a limited-edition yoshikitty “Digital Health Meter” will be sold on the Tanita website. Costing ¥4,400 (tax included), it will be available to buy until July 31, 2020, with a limited number of 100 models available.
26 entrees entered for a chance to win the Collaboration category of the 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking. Taking the 1st place out of 8 is YouTubers Maataso and Hangyodon.
A music video was released to commemorate Cinnamoroll’s third 1st place win. The song is also scheduled to be released digitally at a later date.

Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll & Pompompurin Japanese Wagashi Confections Releasing at Lawson Convenience Stores.
17.January.2020 | FOOD
Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll and Pompompurin are the latest to be picked up by character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas. These wagashi sweets will go on sale at Lawson convenience stores across Japan (excluding Lawson Store 100 branches) on January 21, 2020.
The character line-up is based on the top three winners of the 2019 Sanrio Character Awards which we covered last summer. Hello Kitty came first place at the awards, and so she has gotten a special limited edition design for the sweets series. Cinnamoroll was second on the award list, and this is his first time joining Tabemas. Third place was Pompompurin who appears once again with Tabemas due to his popularity.
The ‘Tabemas’ brand name is an abbreviation of the Japanese words taberareru masukotto, meaning ‘mascots that you can eat.’ It is a Japanese confectionery series that combines well-known characters and Japanese sweets made from ingredients like red bean paste, sugar and rice flour. The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.
In line with the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac, Hello Kitty is donning a kawaii rat outfit. Cinnamoroll’s charm point is his big ears and pink cheeks.
Each confection is filled with a different flavour bean paste: Hello Kitty is cheese, Cinamoroll is milk, and Pompompurin is of course Japanese custard pudding, or ‘purin,’ flavoured. They maintain that delicate flavour of traditional Japanese wagashi while having cute contemporary designs. You’ll be happy to know that all of the colouring is natural tooーno synthetic colours were added.
Perfect as a delicious treat, but don’t forget to snap a photo for Instagram first! Each of them is also limited in stock, so don’t miss your chance to grab one at the nearest Lawson store to you while in Japan.

Pompompurin Zombieland: Save Pompompurin From Zombies at Sanrio’s Horror Event
14.September.2019 | SPOT
Sanrio’s popular character Pompompurin is collaborating with Obaken, a horror experience creative company, to bring the brand new horror event known as Pompompurin Zombieland to Sanrio Puroland on November 16 and 30.
Tickets will go on pre-sale for official Pompompurin ambassadors, or Pombassadors, on September 14 at 10:00am (JST) and general sales will begin on September 28 at 10:00am (JST). To find out more about Pombassadors and how to become one click here.
Pompompurin Zombieland Promo Video
Horror experience planner Obaken is set to shake the cute world of Pompompurin into a terrifying zombie-infested one. In the story, Pompompurin was happily looking for some tasty mushrooms to pick when all of a sudden he eats a poisonous one by mistake. It is your mission to deliver him the antidote to stop him from becoming a zombie. Other unfortunate victims who also ate poisonous mushrooms have died and returned as the living dead and will roam around Puroland. The antidote to save Pompompurin, who is on the brinks of turning into a green zombie, lies in the non-poisonous mushrooms located in 6 areas of the park.
You must survive getting infected by the zombie virus and get your hands on mushrooms. If you succeed you’ll receive an exclusive Pompompurin Zombieland pin badge stating that you have cleared the mission.
You can even pick up an exclusive Zombie Purin t-shirt. These are limited in stock and can’t be bought anywhere else.
Additionally, if you wear a combination of yellow and brown-coloured clothing when attending the event―which are the colours of Pompompurin―you’ll get the above-pictured Zombie Purin sticker.
Full details can be found on the event’s website below. Don’t miss out on this creepy-cute experience this autumn.
