Have you heard of Koupen Chan? This cute character is inspired by a baby emperor penguin and designed by illustrator Rurutea.
You can find Koupen Chan & his friends on Japanese merchandise and also in a couple of cute Japanese videos.
In this video you can see Koupen Chan with the slightly evil bird called Shima Enaga. The elder penguin is called Aderi Chan and from the looks of it he wonders what they are making all the fuss about.
I think that this Koupen Chan Re-ment set from HLJ (Japan) is adorable! I wouldn’t mind bringing it home.
The official Koupen Chan Twitter is in Japanese, but don’t let that stop you from browsing through all the cute products and animations. As you can see Koupen is quite fashionable and he’s even dressed up for Halloween.
