The Rilakkuma and Kaoru animation series is coming up on Netflix this Friday and we’re very excited! We’ll have a couple of Rilakkuma-themed posts this week and a little giveaway over the Easter weekend.
I also wanted to highlight this article in The Japan Times today. Bear essentials: A forthcoming animated series celebrates Rilakkuma’s lackadaisical ethos in all its glory.
It’s a nice overview of Rilakkuma’s origins and history and has lots of details about the show from the director. You might spot a couple of quotes from me too!
Check back in a few hours for the first post.
